what death said about bagel, lox, cream cheese and glass of orange juice

Sexton: What time is it?

Death: Breakfastime on a really most excellent summer's day. You know what we need?

S: I have no idea what you think I need. You need subtitles or some kind of instruction manual.

We need breakfast... I love food. Food is so great. I mean, it's so much more fun than photosynthesis or having a power pack in your back, or bathing in liquid crystals or any of those things.

what sandman said of merv

"It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor."
