Garlick: "What are you gonna do with your time?"
Cronauer: "I don't know. I may go downtown, look for a man named phil. Or I may just stay here and liston to old Pat Boone records. Try and find some hidden meaning cause basically I believe that man is a misunderstood genius."
Garlick: "Genius? What are you saying to me?"
Cronauer: "I'm saying I'm through, Ed. I'm tired of people tellin' me what I can't say. This news isn't official. That comment is too sarcastic. I can't even make fun of Richard Nixon, and there's a man who's screaming out to be made fun of. So bleep it. Sorry."
Sgt. Phil McPherson: "Is he alright?"
Garlick: "No, Phil, he's not alright. A man does not refer to Pat Boone as a beautiful genius if things are alright."
