"I'm not saying that George Harrison and Liberace ever partied with Hugh Hefner. I'm saying that if they did, this ensemble would have been the offspring of whatever clothes wound up in a damp heap beside the grotto at the Playboy Mansion."
"Your decision to dye your hair purple represents a sad grab for attention that is doomed to failure.

And to seal the deal, I'm wearing a swath of carpet from the Reno Hilton's Ballroom A as a smoking jacket!"
"Look here, lady. I didn't get to be the leading salesmen of gently used and/or pre-owned Cadillacs in six counties by wearing smaller paisleys on my power tie. Bigger paisleys, lady. Bigger paisleys and a broader check on the vest. If that's not enough to dazzle you, maybe the sheen from my jacket can help. Now tell me, what do I have to do to put you into a 2006 Escalade today? Or maybe you came for a sermon? Because this is just my day job. I'll be presenting part six of my 17-week series, "Prosper the work of our hands" at Bigotown First Baptist this Sunday."

"Well, of course I've popped my collar! It's a garden party during the Spring Equinox!"
