Famous quotes containing the words watch, operation and/or southern:

    The mother may be doing ninety percent of the disciplining, but the father still must have a full-time acceptance of all the children. He never must say, “Get these kids out of here; I’m trying to watch TV.” If he ever does start saying this, he is liable to see one of his kids on the six o’clock news.
    Bill Cosby (20th century)

    It requires a surgical operation to get a joke well into a Scotch understanding. The only idea of wit, or rather that inferior variety of the electric talent which prevails occasionally in the North, and which, under the name of “Wut,” is so infinitely distressing to people of good taste, is laughing immoderately at stated intervals.
    Sydney Smith (1771–1845)

    How could Southern Ireland keep a bridal North in the manner to which she is accustomed?
