Bobby: Have you ever seen a horse race before? Have you ever, like, heard one on the radio? James Brennan: Harness racing or, like, the normal kind? Paulette: That's a good question.

James Brennan: [after being told that Herman Melville was such an overlooked nobody when he was alive that when he died, his obituary reported his name as Henry Melville] No, that's bullshit, seriously. Herman Melville wrote an 800 page novel that was a parable for the horrors of the whaling industry. He wasn't overlooked or left for dead - he was an impassioned man when he was alive!
