  6. Well, if you’re a native Chicagoan, you know how dumb he [Dr. Robert Hartley] is.

Apparently I'm not alone because I've never been in an empty airport bar. I don't care what time you get there. Even at 8:00 a.m. you have to fight your way to the bar. At that hour, everyone drinks Bloody Marys so no one can tell it's booze- at least until they fall off their chair.
  8. All I can say about life is, 'Oh God, enjoy it!'
