"George, Pete, Rumpelstiltskin -- any name other than David Jones, because I hate the whole Monkee thing. Do you know how many times that people, when they hear my name, feel the need to sing The Monkees theme song to me?"

"Clarence Harmon. I'm gonna mess him around like he's messin' other people around. Believe me, I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna be the new Clarence Harmon and live in City Hall and give jobs to anyone who needs a job, and if he don't like it, that'd make my day!"
