Martin Quote #187

Quote from Martin in The Candidate

TV Announcer: And now another American for Holden Thorpe.
Martin: [on TV] Hi, I'm Marty Crane.
Frasier: Oh, dear God.
Martin: [on TV] For thirty years I was a cop walking a beat in Seattle. Then my hip was shattered by an assassin's bullet - an assassin who wouldn't have been on the streets if it weren't for those bleeding hearts we sent to Congress. I used to carry a gun. Now I carry a cane. I'm voting to elect Holden Thorpe. He's running because I can't.

Quote from Niles

Phil Patterson: Thanks again, Frasier.
Niles: Oh, our pleasure, Phil. The Crane family has a long history of political involvement. You know, my wife Maris actually has all our servants down at your campaign headquarters licking envelopes. She'd do it herself, but the poor thing can't produce saliva.
