Neil Simon told the co-authors in an interview: "The joke about Buffalo. Sometimes I think I wrote it, and then I'm pretty sure that Mark Twain wrote it. I sometimes think it was in the show before me, and yet there's a part of my mind that says I wrote it, and there's a part of my mind that says it's an old joke that was written by somebody like Mark Twain, and it wasn't Buffalo, it was someplace else, like Philadelphia or something."</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> </div> </div> </div> </div> Sun, 04 Dec 2022 07:09:12 +0000 cvining 2030 at https://cvining.com Anger https://cvining.com/quotes/anger <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Anger</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>cvining</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 11/09/2022 - 01:09</span> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Let this be a lesson on the toxicity of anger</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> <div class="field field--name-field-authors field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/270" hreflang="en">Brad Pitt</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-citation field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The Bullet Train (2022), 29:45 in</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 09 Nov 2022 09:09:53 +0000 cvining 2029 at https://cvining.com Stop being who you are https://cvining.com/quotes/stop-being-who-you-are <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Stop being who you are</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>cvining</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 11/04/2022 - 13:07</span> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>You're dad and I had a long talk and we agreed it would be best fpr all of us if you just stop being who you are and doing the things you love</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> <div class="field field--name-field-authors field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/269" hreflang="en">Weird Al</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-citation field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Weird :The Al Yankovic Story (2022), timestamp 5:00</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> </div> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 04 Nov 2022 20:07:22 +0000 cvining 2028 at https://cvining.com Marketing https://cvining.com/quotes/marketing <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Marketing</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>cvining</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 11/02/2022 - 11:06</span> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block"> <div class="content"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Marketing is manipulation and deceit.
