Fair play doesn't pertain in bargaining. What matters there is leverage. Here [pointing to the crowd] is the leverage. Our leverage is that we're the product. We took a bad deal for cable 25 years ago. We took a horrible deal for VHS 20 years ago. We won't be fooled again. (At WGA Rally in front of FOX Plaza)
