I've received a couple corrections to my corrections.  Thought you might
want to know...

First, my pseudo-accurate quote from Albert:
> >Albert:Mr. Horne, I recognize that your position in this fair community
> >	necessitates venality, insincerity, and a certain irritating
> >	manner of expressing yourself.  Stupidity, however, is not a
> >			                ^^^^^^^^^ (not "superiority")
Jon Drukman (jsd@gaffa.MIT.edu) says:
There are minor inaccuracies here.  I think "necessitates" is "pretty
much guarantees."  "Certain irritating manner" is "rather irritating
manner."

Next, the "Donna Smokes!" sequence.  First, my fuzzy recollection:
> >(The following exchange is approximate:)
> >James:	I didn't know you smoked.
> >Donna:	Oh, I smoke every now and then.
> >James:	Why do you smoke?
> >Donna:	To reduce tension.
> >James:	Why are you tense?
> >Donna:	Because I smoke.

Next, Jon Drukman's correction:
James: Since when have you been so tense?
Donna: Since I started smoking.

However, katie@mica.berkeley.edu (Kate Schwarz) offers a different version:
Donna: I smoke every now and then. It relieves tension.
James: When did you get so tense?
Donna: When I started smoking.


And finally, I came up with one more quote.
Truman: What's going on?
Lucy:	[watching TV]  Thanks to Jade, Gerard decided not to kill himself.
	And he's changed his will, leaving the Towers to Jade instead of
	Emerald.  But Emerald found out about it, and now she's trying to
	seduce Chet to give her the new will so that she can destroy it, and
	Montana's planning to kill Gerard at midnight so the Towers will
	belong to Emerald and Montana but I think she's going to double-cross
	him though he doesn't know it.   [pause] Poor Chet!
Truman: What's going on *here*?

If anyone has any more quotes or corrections, let me know.  We wouldn't want
to run the risk of inadvertantly codifying an incorrect quote, now, would
we?  That would be blasphemy!!  :-)
