Quotes

Charlie Hume: How can I relax? Not only might there be a kidnapping tonight, but I haven't been able to line up a speaker. I mean, what, what's everybody gonna say when I get up there tonight and say "Sorry, ladies and gentlemen, we haven't got a closing speaker".
Lou Grant: They'll probably give you a standing ovation.
Charlie Hume: Oh.
Lou Grant: Maybe even carry you out of the room on their shoulders.
