Reverend Jim on fruit:
"I wonder about things; like, if they call an orange an 'orange', why don't they call an apple a 'red', or a banana a 'yellow'. Now 'blueberries' I can understand, but somebody explain 'gooseberries' to me."
Reverend Jim on television:
"Hey, Alex, you know the really great thing about television? If something important happens, anywhere in the world, night or day, you can always change the channel."
Poetry by Reverend Jim: (written for Elaine)
I saw you standing in a Manhatten sunset
Your auburn hair blowing from Atlantic winds.
Your eyes were smiling at thoughts far away,
Dancing to sonnets only you could hear.
If I could, I would build you a castle
In a world from some other time.
A castle I can only imagine
A castle only you could inspire.
