Obama with coffee cup - July 6 2009

“Coffee smells pretty good first thing in the morning, if you ask me.”

PHILIP
“Where’s it from?”

TONY
“This lady came by, she was from the States and she told me to ‘have a good Independence Day’.  So, just to bug her, since she’s a Yank, I say: ‘Oh, isn’t that an American version of our Canada Day?  Well, we both laughed and then she got me this coffee.”

TONY

TONY
“Hey Phil, they’re now saying it’s Obama for sure. Somebody was telling me that this is the ‘Obama Revolution’. Never thought I’d see it in my own lifetime.”

Another chance

May 7, 2008

PHILIP
“Did you check out the papers about Barack Obama?”
