William Parrish: Should I be afraid?
Joe Black: A man like you?


William Parrish: You want me to be your guide?
Joe Black: You fit the bill, Bill.

I thought I was going to sneak away tonight. What a glorious night! Every face I see is a memory. It may not be a perfectly... perfect memory. Sometimes we've had our ups and downs, but we're all together, And you're mine, for a night. And I'm going to break precedence and tell you my one candle wish: that you would have a life, as lucky as mine where you can wake up one morning and say, "I don't want anything more." 65 years, don't they go by in a blink?

William Parrish: You know about money, don't you?
Joe Black: It can't buy happiness?

Sure, I want to make a profit. You can't exist without one. But John Bontecou is all profit. Now if we give him license to absorb Parrish Communications, and he has his eye on a few others after us, in order to reach the world you will have to go through John Bontecou. And not only will you have to pay him to do this, far more important, you'll have to agree with him. Reporting the news is a privilege and a responsibility, and it is not exploitable. Parrish Communications has earned this privilege. John Bontecou wants to buy it. As your Chairman, I urge you to agree this company is not for sale

I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a dervish.

You got enough nice pictures?

Thank you, Drew. Yeah. I did enjoy -- or rather I was interested in meeting John Bontecou, yesterday. And -- impressive, I suppose. But... But, it did get me to thinking. See, I started in this business because this is what I wanted to do. I knew I wasn't going to write the great American novel, but I also knew there was more to life than buying something for a dollar and selling it for two. I'd hoped to create something, something which could be held to the highest standards. And what I realized was I wanted to give the news to the world, and I wanted to give it unvarnished. The more we all know about each other, the greater the chance we will survive.

You never know, lightning could strike.

Don't blow smoke up my ass, you'll ruin my autopsy.

You're not Death. You're just a kid in a suit.

Careful Bill, you'll give yourself a heart attack and ruin my vacation.

I can't believe you people. I come for you, and you want to stay, I let you stay and you want to go.

Do you have any peanut butter?

Thank you for loving me.
