Sean O’Connell:  Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.

Sean O’Connell:  If I like a moment—I mean me, personally—I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera.  I just want to stay in it.  Right here.

Ted Hendricks:  Life, I’m loving it.

Walter Mitty:  That’s not it. That’s McDonald’s.

Walter Mitty:  This thing that you do, Ted, where you come into a place and push people out, you should know those people worked really hard to build this magazine. They believed in the motto. And I get it, you’ve got your marching orders and you have to do what you have to do, but you don’t have to be such a d***. Put that on a plaque and hang it at your next job.
