Cameron: [on the phone] Gloria, we are so sorry, but we're not gonna be able to make it to Joe's play. No, no, Ronaldo's mom, she had... well, she had emergency surgery, and, uh, he and Pepper dropped off their Great Danes to our place with no warning. [barks] No! No, stay away from that! Not the vase! [smashes vase] Sorry, Gloria. I gotta go. [hangs up]
Mitchell: You couldn't just say you had a cold?
Cameron: Oh, yeah, and Abe Lincoln, he could've said, "87 years ago," and Hamlet could've said, "Maybe I'll kill myself." No, it's the finishing touches that separate the merely good from great, Mitchell!
