“Did you hear that Benazir Bhutto was just assassinated?”

Remembering to say thank-you

TONY
“I know everybody thinks Bush has lost it upstairs but also you know, I meet a lot of Yanks and most of them are nice and decent people when you get to talk to them. And they’re spittin’ mad — same as us about Vietnam — I mean Iraq — and they can’t stand Bush just like we Canadians can’t.”

PHILIP
“And your point is …?”

TONY
“Well, someone just reminded me that it was American Thanksgiving on Thursday. It just made me think we should be giving thanks for having Americans as neighbours, even if their government’s run by a bunch of cocaine addicts. You gotta remember that America saved our ass a few times in history.”

PHILIP
“I didn’t see you at the [Roncesvalles] street festival this weekend.”

TONY
“Well, one of the cops asked me not to be in the festival area. You know, you can see his point; folks just want to be having fun at the festival. They don’t want to be bothered by a guy like me. Anyway, I told the cop it was no problem … he was just doing his job, just the same as I was doing mine. Then he goes and cracks me up when he says: ‘Yeah, but I prefer my job to yours.’

“You gotta agree with him on that one.”

The Bush legacy

PHILIP
“Did you see that Bush is down to a 25% approval rating? You know that’s lower than Nixon during Watergate.”

TONY
“You’re kidding … he’s below Nixon? Bush better pull up his socks. If he’s that bad, he’s probably missing a sock, if you know what I mean.”
