FROM THE SHOW: "I don't remember having that conversation which I didn't have or remember having. During the process I can't recall if I remember if I was involved in deliberations I may have been involved in that I was not present at to the best of my recollection. I oversaw it. I had nothing to do with it. But to the best of my remembrance in which I was not really paying attention I wasn't party to the deliberations as to whether U.S. attorneys with excellent performance evaluations should or should not be asked to resign due to poor performance evaluations, at the pleasure of the president".

"I couldn't have asked for better."
--Sid Caesar

"And people say I talk funny!"
--Jackie Mason

"Don't miss the "Kinda Torture is Sorta Okay" bit where the Geneva Conventions are applied to the first three rows of the theater but not the rest - a waterboard, er, watershed moment! Destined to become a classic!"
--Showbiz Today

"No enemy combatant left unturned. It will blow your mind!"
--Constitutional Quarterly

"Not since Hal Holbrook brought us Mark Twain has a character been so embodied by a performer. Legal precedent breaks loose and takes a wild ride right out the door! Be there before it's all gone!
--Patrick Leahy

A catchphrase is born! "I don't remember" uttered 71 times will outlive Rodney Dangerfield's "I don't get no respect"!!
