Line(s) of the Day #AsIKnewHimMyDadRodSerling

I look forward to these trips to Disneyland and having my dad all to myself. Much advance planning goes into these excursions. My dad and I decide where will be stay overnight, the precise time he will pick me up form school, where I should wait for him, what we should take, and so on. That he is as excited as I am is clearly evident. There is no pretence, no forced pleasure; these trips unquestionably appeal to the child within him.

Driving on the freeway, we play our usual pre-Disney game. He will say “Okay, Pops, the first one who sees the one for Disneyland get to pick the first ride.” My dad never sees it. He must be blind, I think in my young mind.

Taken from As I Knew Him, My Dad, Rod Serling by Anne Serling. A personal biography of her legendary father, who among his many notable achievements was responsible for the iconic show The Twilight Zone.

Rachel: (into phone) I’ll call you back (hangs up).
Joey: Who was that?
Rachel: Just the pizza place.
Joey: You hung up on the pizza place? I don’t hang up on your friends!

Line(s) of the Day #AlingonMitra

I don’t like people who brag. They do like the subtle brag. Like I have a friend who went to Harvard and and he always tries to drop it into conversation, you know. And he’s always been like that, even when we were at college together.

A wonderfully subtle joke by talented TV writer and comedian Alingon Mitra. Mitra’s appearances on TV include The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Conan and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

It means everything to hold this trophy and I don’t want to let go right now.
