    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Don't complain about the server, the chef, or anything else.

    Still think the Big Shot on top of that space needle thing in Vegas is hard to top.

    I didn't ride the "Big Shot" but I had a conference in the Stratosphere up at the top. Fire alarm went off and we were hustled to concrete bunkers that sort of "hang" underneath the main structure at the top of the needle. Floor is small, walls are OPEN, with some chain link. They evacuate you by helicopter, apparently. You just saunter up to the opening in the chain link (through which the wind is howling) and "step over into the chopper".

    We were down there waiting word that it was a false alarm for like 20 minutes. I was...what's the word? Oh yeah. FREAKED OUT OF MY MIND TERRIFIED.

    What do you mean "if"? Nature was urging. The nature that occurs at those heights and nervous levels! I don't recall any bathrooms...
