From Quotes
There are two ways of being happy: We must either diminish our wants or augment our means—either may do—the result is the same and it is for each man to decide for himself and to do that which happens to be easier.

The damnedest thing you ever saw! (taglines)

Haven Hamilton

  • All right I wanna do another one ... I wanna hear a little more Haven in this one.
  • When I ask for Pig, I want Pig. Now you get me Pig, and then we'll be ready to record this song.
  • You get your haircut. You don't belong in Nashville.
  • Shut up, Pearl.
  • Y'all take it easy now. This isn't Dallas, it's Nashville! They can't do this to us here in Nashville! Let's show them what we're made of. Come on everybody, sing! Somebody, sing!

  • Who do you think is running Congress? Farmers? Engineers? Teachers? Businessmen? No, my friends. Congress is run by lawyers. A lawyer is trained for two things and two things only. To clarify – that's one. And to confuse – that's the other. He does whichever is to his client's advantage. Did you ever ask a lawyer the time of day? He told you how to make a watch, didn't he? Ever ask a lawyer how to get to Mr. Jones' house in the country? You got lost, didn't you? Congress is composed of 535 individuals. Two hundred and eighty-eight are lawyers. And you wonder what's wrong in Congress. No wonder we often know how to make a watch, but we don't know the time of day.

Marthe ("L. A. Joan"): Hi, Tom, could you sign my record?
Tom Frank: You better get off that diet before you ruin yourself.

Bill: Is this just network or is it, uh ...?
John Triplette: No, it's better, it's really better than network. It's going to be syndicated, so I mean, hell, they're going to be showing it for a year and a half.
