"Broken nose New Hampshire and Cauliflower Ear Maine were settled by refugees from the Canadian Boxer Rebellion of 1961. The Canadian presence is still powerful in the twin cities manifested by the word 'ay' in just about every sentence, uh, in local newspapers, television, radio, and, ah, screamed out by many women in the throes of sexual ecstasy: AYYYYYYYYY" …
"In America, uh, as human beings we're equals; we all have value, we all have worth. It's not always that simple but it is always that noble. Let us, ah, be who we are -- Baptist, Jew; black, white; gay, straight -- in peace, whenever possible, and by law always."
