132505. If we have any problems, it’s always with the government of the United States. – Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani

132516. Each department and institution has its own authorities and responsibilities, and they act on that basis.

132645. Chloe is really just like an exaggerated aspect of myself. – Mary Lynn Rajskub

132687. The parrot’s so funny. He imitates me and I don’t even realize he’s doing it. I’m walking around the house talking to myself and whistling and the next day he’s said something I’ve said… it’s scary you know? – Mick Ralphs

132688. We just sang real simple songs in a simple way that got to people. We didn’t try to tart them up with orchestral arrangements and all the stuff. We were all blues fanatics. We like R+B and blues and simple, gut-feeling music. – Mick Ralphs
