George Sr. Quote #157
Quote from George Sr. in Borderline Personalities
George Sr.: [quietly] You see the "W's " and the word "Bush." I mean, what else could it be?
Lucille: You mean other than a 20-foot-wide monument that goes five miles into the sky?
George Sr.: I know, I know. And I told him it wouldn't stand, which I probably shouldn't have.
Lucille: It's a wall, George. You're looking at it sideways. The "W" stands for "Wall." The bushes...
George Sr.: Stand for the bushes. Ah! This explains the immigration booth 10,000 feet in the air.
Lucille: It's to separate the U.S. and Mexico, to keep out the immigrants, which was my idea!
George Sr.: Was your idea. I remember. You said that right after Lupe got the bleach stain on your teal blazer.
Lucille: How did you miss this, George? This is business we should have. Is this how you're going to let it all end, as a failure? Is that your plan?
George Sr.: No. Of course not.
Narrator: It was his plan.

Michael: You're the one that said no to prison.
George Sr.: I was wrong. There, you just have it to shut your eyes and take it. Here, you have shut your eyes and give it. Now, listen, we can't go in there and plead "not guilty". We have to have someone big behind us, our own private Matlock. So I made calls and I got him.

George Sr.: Andy Griffith. What, you never saw Matlock?
Michael: Not a real attorney, Dad.
George Sr.: Now, for ten grand, he'll actually sit behind us in court and read the paper. For 15, he'll actually sit at the defense table. For $20,000, he'll twice lean forward and whisper something in your ear. Oh. White suit, that's extra.
Michael: Boy, that's an awful lot of money for the stupidest idea I've ever heard.
George Sr.: The juries love him.
