These past couple of weeks have been slow on the "quotes" front, and LP was the only real star. So without further ado, I present the quotes of the last two weeks:
(On Philip Roth)
BKG: "He has the sexual perversions of a starving man and a hungry panther all at once."
(On our boss being appointed to President Obama's PCAST)
AJK: "What does PCAST stand for?"
ME: "Something like President's Committee of Advisors for Science and Tech--or President's Council? It's like the Jedi."
(On explaining kinases to non-scientists)
LP: "This is how I explain the kinase to other people: if it doesn't work, CANCER! CANCER! CANCER!"
LP: "When I say something nasty I say it in English so that the beautiful will be associated only with Chinese."
LP: "I have to tell you a story....it's a story about dickishness."
LP: "I represent sexiness. I'm just there to sex it up."
