Quote of the Day: Sophie’s Choice

Sophie: My mother, she’s very sick, you know. And I can’t do anything. But I think – if only I could have got – that meat for my mother it would make her strong. So I go to the country and er… the peasants were selling ham and I buy it with the black market money and I bring it back. But it’s forbidden, you know, because all the meat goes to the Germans. So I sat on the train and I hid it under my skirt, I am pretending that I am pregnant, you know? Oh I was so afraid. I was shaking. And then the German, was in front of the train and he saw me. So he come over and take under my skirt that ham and…
[pause]
Sophie: So they sent me Auschwitz.
Stingo: You were sent to Auschwitz because you stole a ham?
Sophie: No, I was sent to Auschwitz because they saw that I was afraid.

Sometimes you picture me, I’m walking too far ahead
You’re calling to me, I can’t hear what you’ve said


Last Song: “Seventeen” by Winger from the album Winger (1988)

Oh, it’d be a shame
Not to see you again

Jack Chester: Didn’t I read that on your bathroom wall?

Scully: Yes. And it’s as true today as when I hung it there.

Elwood: The what?

Elwood: No, for a microphone.

Jake: A microphone?

[pause]

Jake: Okay I can see that. What the hell is this?

Elwood: This was a bargain. I picked it up at the Mount Prospect city police auction last spring. It’s an old Mount Prospect police car. They were practically giving ’em away.

Jake: Well thank you, pal. The day I get outta prison, my own brother picks me up in a *police* car!

Happy Father’s Day! ’80s Sitcom Fathers

In honor of Father’s Day, here is a tribute to ’80s sitcom Fathers. These are listed in no particular order:

Howard Cunninghan – Happy Days

“Mr. C” had a lot to deal with. Not only did own a hardware store (Cunningham Hardware), but he had to deal with his bickering kids (Richie and Joanie), and his sometimes spacey wife, Marion. He also had to put up with Richie’s goofy friends, Potsie and Ralph Mouth, and he was also a father figure to Fonzie. Then later on, he had to deal with Fonzie’s nephew, Chachi, chasing after his daughter.
At least he got to let off steam at the Leopard Lodge or bowling for a team called the Ten Pins.

Edward Stratton III – Silver Spoons

Sure Edward Stratton may have been a bit of a man-child. But who would complain about a dad that has a train that runs through the house. And at the time, how many of us were jealous that Ricky had a full size arcade game in the house?!

Jason Seaver – Growing Pains

Dr. Jason Seaver was a psychiatrist who also taught lessons to his own kids. And how cool was he to score Springsteen tickets for his son, Mike?! Too bad Jason embarrased him on th on-street TV interview after the concert. Well, nobody’s perfect.

Steven Keaton – Family Ties


Steven was a public TV manager, and a proud former hippie, who raised four children – one of whom was a conservative free marketeer. The soft-spoken father was able to guide his family through som “very special episodes” and came through with flying colors.

Al Bundy – Married With Children

albundy2Al Bundy was the heart and soul of the Bundy family. He was cursed selling women’s shoes, and came home to a family that constantly mocked him. But he still enjoyed the simple things in life, such as sitting in front of the TV, and sticking his hand in his pants.

So who are some of your favorite sitcom dads? Mr. Drummond? The dads from My Two Dads? Tony from Who’s the Boss?

Give a shout out to your favorite dads, and Happy Father’s Day!

Something is wrong as I hold you near

Last Song: “’65 Love Affair” by Paul Davis from the album Cool Night (1981)

Great job Jim (@JimVilk)!!!

If I could go back again
Well I know I’d never let you go
Back with some of my friends
To that wonderful
