Quotes

Bernard Slatkin: What do you think?
[Indicating the restaurant]
Justine Altemus Slatkin: Well, I like Mike, but I'll have to reserve my opinion until after I've eaten the food, because it's not exactly what I'm used to.
Bernard Slatkin: I guess Clarence's is more your style. You know, I ate there once, hated it.
Justine Altemus Slatkin: Was it the people or the place you didn't like?
Bernard Slatkin: The food.
Justine Altemus Slatkin: Well, that makes sense. No one goes there to eat anyway. They all go to be seen and to look at each other.
