I made a choice and I'd do it again. I let Lawrence Schatz die and if i was faced with that choice right now I would make the same choice.

Alfredo: Might I make an observation?
Olive: Compliment or criticism?
Alfredo: A neutral thought I would say. It's not a compliment nor critical.

Ned: Why are you still talking?
Emerson: I'm rippin' off the Bandaid!
Ned: I'm not a ripper, I pull up a corner a little at a time and then run it under warm water and I pull it up a little more. It's a process.

Emerson: I need to chat with Lawrence Schatz before he goes into the ground. Tomorrow.
