Day 4 - Your fav book
Day 5 - Your fav quote

This is obscure, but it has personal history: a somewhat friendly work acquaintance became a very close friend because of it. We were having lunch, and she started to pick the green onions out of whatever it was she ordered. I smiled and said:

"You know, some people call them green onions, but they're really scallions."

She looked at me with the strangest expression, and I said, "That's from something, but for the life of me I can't remember what." She said, "I do! It's from 'Christmas Dragnet'!"

Stan Freberg's "Christmas Dragnet" radio sketch, to be specific. My dad had played it so much when I was growing up, that the quotes became embedded in my subconscious.

Love to have ya! )

Apropos of nothing, I'm trying to catch up on the last season of Scrubs, and I was over at TWoP reading the quote thread...

This was probably one of the Dr. Cox rants I laughed hardest at when I first watched the episode...and when I caught the rerun...and every single time I read it...

Dr. Cox: Carla, I have a six-month-old child. I'm gonna be one of those weird old guys who brings my son down to the park, where everybody is like, Hmm, is he the dad? Is he the grand-dad? Is he the grand-dad's grand-dad? And, oh, my God! Why is he pushing a traffic cone on the swing while his five-year-old little boy is in the mud crying? Is--is he taunting the little boy? No! He can't even see the little boy! And, now look, he's actually taking the traffic cone, putting it in the mini-van, and driving away while the little boy cries and the traffic cone sits quietly and watches 'Finding Nemo' on DVD.
