Philadelphia Quotes

We're standing here in Philadelphia, the, uh, city of brotherly love, the birthplace of freedom, where the, uh, founding fathers authored the Declaration of Independence, and I don't recall that glorious document saying anything about all straight men are created equal. I believe it says all men are created equal.

Joe Miller

Librarian: Sir, wouldn't you be more comfortable in a study room?
Andrew Beckett: No. Would it make you more comfortable?
