Quotes Harriet Hayes: [in a thick Southern twang] Matt, I can do the witch as Holly Hunter if you want.
Matt Albie: I don't.
Harriet Hayes: [still in a southern twang] Would you like it if I spent the rest of the day talking to you as Holly Hunter?
Matt Albie: Not at all.
Harriet Hayes: [still doing Holly Hunter] It's hard for me to jibe with you since you have personified something which I truly think is dangerous.
Matt Albie: Stop now.
