Quotes

Roseanne: I always notice at the end of those Black Stallion and Flipper movies, they always have a little card that says: "No Animals Were Hurt or Exploited in the Making of this Film." I guess they don't have one of those for women.

This Was A Truly Terrible Show

I flipped it on once and Delta Burke was giving a speech about 'wive' beating to a bunch of fat-cat male senators. It then proceeds to have violin music or whatever to video of women being beaten that had me confused as to whether it was funny or just plain bad amateur acting. The women's heads were being swung violently and they were bleeding all over the place. It was a truly awful show.
