From "The Rockford Files: Chicken Little Is a Little Chicken (#2.9)"
[Jim's just finished reading to Angel the fake obituary about Angel, which they plan to put in the morning paper. It mentions - amongst other 'upstanding' qualities, angel's being a ex-con, grifter, con man, petty thief, known by the police, as well as where he served time, and desertion of duties during the Korean War

How would you feel, if your mother was to read that?
[Angel's mother's dead
[In a raised, annoyed voice
] Let's bury your mother, Angel, all right?
[Annoyed and mocking
] What are you? You can't change a line, Joseph Pulitzer?
