    Michael Jordan. I am a big and famous basketball player, like me.

    I've always felt that Hannibal Lecter was just misunderstood. Always seemed so polite and had a sardonic wit, just like me.

    For some reason I get strange looks when before going into a rough meeting I say "It is a good day to die."

    They probably just think you're doing a bad job of quoting the gladiator saying "We who are about to die salute you." Or it could be the 9mm Glock you're pointing at them.

    I identify with Jake Gittes of Chinatown. "Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown."

    Do you look vaguely Klingon? Worf used to say that before battle . . .

    Didn't the Sioux warchief, Crazy Horse, supposedly say that before the Battle of the Little Big Horn?

    Anyhoo, my three favorite movie characters: Han Solo (Harrison Ford) from Star Wars , Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) of The Fugitive and US Marshals, and Edna Spaulding (Sally Field) of Places in the Heart.

    Ron Burgundy....mainly for the jazz flute...but also the rich mahogany and casual sexism.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

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

    Best role Ben Stiller ever played. Period. I thought I was the only weirdo who loved Tony Perkis.

    Loved that show.

    Yes, I'm old enough to still vaguely remember when MTV had actual good shows.

    I'll add another from a great MTV show back in the early 90's: Ren Hoek
