It depends... on what you mean by "effective".

Thats... (slips on sunglasses) ...what I was going to say.

It looks like you guys ... (slips on sunglasses)... won't get fooled again.

My lawsy but that man is a bad actor. I couldn't watch even a third of that montage. I got the creeps, and not in a good way. I'd rather watch David Hasselhoff anytime. I'd rather be tied to a chair and forced to watch a Dukes of Hazard marathon. I'd rather be condemned to the hell of My Mother, The Car for eternity.

I'll never wear sunglasses again.

Yes, Mick ... (slips on sunglasses) ... a CSI montage can have that affect on you.

Ok, people... (slips on sunglasses) ... three Roger Daltrey screams was enough!

Brilliant! The opening scene's pithy saying is the only reason my wife makes me watch that show. Now I can just show her this video and she'll be all Caruso-ed out.

For anyone who's lived in a household with a violin-practicing child, (removes sunglasses) child not practicing is also a bonus.

You'll like this story: A friend and I took a road trip to Philly and along the way decided to stamp out pretention where ever we found it.

We saw this guy Caruso being interviewed on TV, and he coined my favorite pretentious phrase: "I really jive in that genre".

So for years we went around dropping it into conversation just to see the look on people's faces.

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that it turned out he's as pretentious in real life as he is in reel life, but it doesn't always follow.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
