open sewer and die. - Mel Brooks
He that sleeps wi' dogs maun rise wi' fleas. - Scottish

temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby, can you hear me now?
The chains are locked and tied across the door
Baby, sing with me somehow
When I leave CSI, there won't be any cake in the break room. I'll
just be gone.
From the first episode of the HBO series Bored to Death:
George: You’re like me, Jonathan. We enthrall and then we
disappoint. It used to take me several years, now it’s a couple of
weeks. If I’m with a woman longer than that, then there’s something
wrong with her.
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception
Never sell past the close.
