Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, February 09, 2021

A set of two pop-cultural quotations — one new, one quite old — stick in my mind this morning. So I might as well mark them down here:

“Hell, Poot, we’re all whores; might as well be the best.”
- Maxwell, North Dallas Forty (different from the original dialogue in the book by Peter Gent — “Ah, but we’re all whores, aren’t we? I guess I should take some satisfaction in being the best.” — but one of the few details of which were improved with the filmed adaptation)

“We may be whores at my agency, but we ain’t pimps!”
- Ari Gold, “Entourage”, episode “Dog Day Afternoon”

I’m picking up a decades-long call-and-response between Maxwell’s and Ari’s declarations. Probably, it’s just me.
