The Bald Soprano
Mary: "Elizabeth is not Elizabeth, Donald is not Donald." (139)
Mr. Smith: "And what is even more interesting is the fact that firemen's stories are all true, and they're based on experience."
Fire Chief: "I speak from my own experience. Truth, nothing but the truth. No fiction." (337-338)
Fire Chief: "'The Dog and the Cow,' an experimental fable. Once upon a time another cow asked another dog: 'Why have you not swallowed you trunk?' 'Pardon me,' replied the dog, 'it is because I thought that I was an elephant.'"
Mrs. Martin: "What's the moral?"
Fire Chief: "That's for you to find out." (251-253)
