What is fred?

Famous quotes containing the word fred:

    But the Krell forgot one thing.... Monsters, John, monsters from the id.
    Cyril Hume, and Fred McLeod Wilcox. Lt. “Doc” Ostrow (Warren Stevens)

    For me, it’s enough! They’ve been here long enough—maybe too long. It’s a funny thing, though. All these years Fred was too busy to have much time for the kids, now he’s the one who’s depressed because they’re leaving. He’s really having trouble letting go. He wants to gather them around and keep them right here in this house.
    —Anonymous Parent. As quoted in Women of a Certain Age, by Lillian B. Rubin, ch. 2 (1979)
