I can’t say too much about it because I don’t know a lot. We’re not told what’s in store for our characters until we turn up to shoot the episode. But it’s fair to say that Betty and her son bring a brand new mystery to the street and they will be around all season.

Yes, I’ve been written off, and it amazes me, and it amuses me, also, when I’m written off by the press cause then I tell them that’s just the lull before the storm. And every time I’ve been down, I’ve been down, never out. So it just makes me work a lot harder.

It is fair to say that insofar as sport is taken seriously by those who play it, then to that extent their conduct in play – their ability to deal with loss or victory, their ability to meld strategic thinking and brute force – can be taken as a small-scale model of how they, or others like them, might behave in life.
People have a negative impression of New York that I don’t think is quite fair.

You had to pitch in and out. The zone didn’t belong to the hitters; it belonged to the pitchers. Today, if you pitch too far inside, the umpire would stop you right there. I don’t think it’s fair.

I think most people who were involved with television will tell you, if given a season or given a 13-episode order and getting those episodes on the air, and if viewers don’t come, I think most people will tell you they’d walk away. They feel they were given a fair shake, and if viewers didn’t come, they didn’t come.
Myself, I don’t think you will ever get security in the Mideast until you have what on the surface appears to be fair to both sides. You have to have leaders committed to peace, on both sides. One side can’t impose a solution.

Brass shines as fair to the ignorant as gold to the goldsmiths.

Roger Corman exploited all of the young people who worked for him, but he really gave you responsibility and opportunity. So it was kind of a fair deal.
I run all the brands like cousins. You want your cousins to do well, but you want to do better. All of our brands want to win, but we certainly want to fight fair and coordinate as much as we can behind the scenes. But to the consumer, we want to offer the broadest, most competitive set of products that we can.
One can criticize the Israeli government, but it is not fair to judge the people of Israel.
I don’t think I’m very fashionable. I drink a fair amount of Barry’s Tea, from Cork – but might that be fashionable? I don’t know.

Food service workers, home care workers, farm workers, and other low-wage workers log long hours. They come home tired after providing services and producing goods that make our country stronger. They deserve fair treatment from their employers, and they deserve a voice in collective bargaining.

My life is fair game for anybody. I spent an unhappy, penniless childhood in Brooklyn. I had to slug my way up in a town called Hollywood where people love to trample you to death. I don’t relax because I don’t know how. I don’t want to know how. Life is too short to relax.
When we ask for love, we don’t ask others to be fair to us-but rather to care for us, to be considerate of us. There is a world of difference here between demanding justice… and begging or pleading for love.

I think that taxes would be fair if we first get rid of the tax code. This is the ultimate solution, not to just say we’re going to trim around the edges, not to say that we will try to simplify a little of this and a little of that. The problem is, replace the tax code, so we can establish tax fairness for everybody.
I’ve always tried to be fair, even-handed, not an advocate for any group.

I feel like I’ve come off as an outspoken woman. Sometimes I think I’ve come off as confrontational. But I feel like it’s been pretty fair. Those are parts of me.

Nobody has been arrested on Wall Street for the crash of 2008. They’re not paying their fair share of the taxes. And now with the Citizens United case of the Supreme Court, they get to buy politicians up out in the open.

Rather, it is through conciliation and compromise that we are building a fair Iraq, a just state for all its peoples.
Life’s not fair. Don’t expect it to be.

The testimony of former abortion workers can help persuade lawmakers to create fair laws that protect women from dirty abortion facilities.
The abolition of the double sanction for a foul in the box is a welcome change. There are times that you cannot help but stop your opponent in the box, with your momentum forcing you to make a challenge. Fouls can’t be avoided in that situation but your intention was fair.
I’d love to do well on a big weekend with people watching and cheering, of course. But it’s not fair to create an expectation level before I know what is realistic. I want to finish as well as possible. Is that top 20? Top 15? Top 25? You just have to play it by ear.
You only have to look at London, where almost half of all primary school children speak English as a second language, to see the challenges we now face as a country. This isn’t fair to anyone: how can people build relationships with their neighbours if they can’t even speak the same language?
In 1998, Vanity Fair asked me to write a big piece for them on the 50th anniversary of the New York City Ballet. My life, to a great extent, had been spent at and with the New York City Ballet, and I decided to try it. It was very scary, writing about something I loved so much and had such strong opinions about.
A comparison between the triplets tentatively deduced by these methods with the changes in amino acid sequence produced by mutation shows a fair measure of agreement.
Blemishes are hid by night and every fault forgiven; darkness makes any woman fair.

It is the right of government to protect the weak; it is the right of the weak to find in their courts fair treatment before the law.

Some people have a God because they need faith, and that’s fair enough.
Court proceedings, except for certain limited situations, are open to the public. This is for the protection of the accused, to be certain to ascertain that there is a fair trial.

Things are not going to be easy, things are not going to be fair. Just do your best.
I’m not going to get into the writer’s skills or what he was trying to portray because that’s not fair. I can only say what I felt was trying to be portrayed there.
For this to make sense, of course, it would have to be a fair financial deal for us. But I think this could be the occasion for us to build a true partnership in content. And we’re especially interested because interactive services are a key field for us.
It’s pretty crazy. I was thinking about that today, how ‘True Blood’ has penetrated so much of the cultural zeitgeist. It’s truly amazing; it’s incredible! The cover of ‘Rolling Stone’ is major. What’s next, the cover of ‘Vanity Fair?’ When I’m in a ‘New Yorker’ cartoon, then I will feel like I have made it.
I think the British people have a strong sense of what is fair.
There are some programs on FOX that are not only fair and balanced, they’re commentary shows. They don’t have to be. But they brag about how fair and balanced they are. They don’t cover rallies and tea parties. They cheer lead for rallies and tea parties. And as a journalist, I am totally against that.
It won’t be fair on my part to name one song that brought me fame, but ‘Suit Suit’ from ‘Hindi Medium’ is close to my heart, and it quite turned tables for me.
That does not mean that we must forego just and fair criticism, or refrain from opposition to policies which are debatable or which do not command our approval.
Reacting to every slight or letdown is neither realistic nor fair; it sends the message that we expect the other person to be flawless in relationship. But no one is perfect, and no one relationship can ever meet all our needs.
My contract with my teachers is fair, and is two pages. The union contract is 200 pages. You cannot manage your business when you cannot make any decision without going back to 200 pages worth of stuff.
The media love to cover black people on the front page. After all, when you live in a society that will lock up about 30 percent of all black men at some time in their lives and send more of them to prison than to college, chances are a fair number of those black faces will end up in the newspaper.
As someone with a deep faith in competition and the market, I also know that markets only work with tough enforcement of the rules that guarantee competition and fair play – and that the pressure to break those rules only gets stronger as the amount of money involved gets larger.
Now, the president would like to do tax reform, which would obviously lower rates for most people in America and make the tax code fair and get rid of loopholes and special treatment. But absent tax reform, the president believes the right way to get our fiscal house in order is ask the wealthy to pay their fair share.
Drafting a constitution is only the first step. The constitution has to be granted legitimacy by open discussion and a fair, representative referendum.
I have been a victim of stereotypes. I come from Latin America and to some countries, we are considered ‘losers,’ drug traffickers, and that is not fair because that is generalizing.
General revenue – what taxpayers are willing to give government, what they think is fair to give government – is not going to grow at the same amount that the federal government basically forces us to spend on Medicaid.
The day cold and fair with a high easterly wind: we were visited by two Indians who gave us an account of the country and people near the Rocky mountains where they had been.
Novel writing should never be confused with journalism. Unfortunately, in the case of Primary Colors, a fair number of journalists confused.

It has always been my understanding that the brave men and women who fought and died for our country did so to ensure that we could live in a fair and free society, which includes the right to speak out in protest.
Education never really interested me, to be fair. I mean, education does interest me, but academic school study is a different thing. I can’t quite grasp that.
We should make it so that young people pay their fair share for health care, and nothing more. And instead of Washington telling us what to buy, let’s get back to letting every American choose the plan that’s best for them and their family.
But, you know, the issues of humanity and what is fair treatment and good treatment of a fellow human being should not really be based on a personal sense of right and wrong or judgment.
Free migration within Europe means that countries that have done a better job at reducing unemployment will predictably end up with more than their fair share of refugees.

It’s a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30 on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom. One day I might be able to make sense of this. In the meantime I think it’s fair to say that it has its upside and its downside.
I don’t mind being cast as some kind of a pantomime baddie, but I am very fair in business. I always have been. I pride myself on being fair.
The ‘serial kisser’ tag that has been thrust on to me is a lame stereotype. It irritates me. Yes, there is sexual content in my movies, and I have never been apologetic about doing bold scenes. But it’s not fair to tag me this way because that can be very stifling.
I’m singing these songs about death and stuff. I see somebody who’s, like, in their sixties or seventies at the show, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, sure. Fair enough.’
If life was fair, Elvis would be alive and all the impersonators would be dead.
And it would be fair. Everyone will pay the same tax and it will eliminate tax cheaters and corporate shenanigans.
I’m so fair that I didn’t go in the sun as a child. When all my friends were on the beach, I was going to ballet. The teachers there didn’t like you going in the sun, so I never did.
We have to acknowledge that adolescence is that time of transition where we begin to introduce to children that life isn’t pretty, that there are difficult things, there are hard situations, it’s not fair. Bad things happen to good people.
The book has many different characteristics: some are extremely old-fashioned storytelling traits, but there are also a fair number of postmodern traits, and the self-consciousness is one.
There’s never going to be a system that is fair to everyone.
What we need to do is replace the entire tax code. I do not think it makes sense to say, ‘Let’s just grab money from, quote, the wealthy’… The issue is the tax code’s rotten and we should start truly over with a simple code that is fair and transparent.
I have this theory that people in Hollywood don’t read. They read ‘Vanity Fair’ and then consider themselves terribly well read. I think I can basically write about anybody without getting caught.

It definitely takes a fair bit of experience to know what’s the right kind of wave and which is the wrong wave.
My parents put the New Yorker in my crib. I saw Vogue and Vanity Fair around the house before I could read.

The first duty of a newspaper is to be accurate. If it be accurate, it follows that it is fair.
We all live in the same house, we all must be part of the effort to hold down our little house. When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just… do something about it. Say something. Have the courage. Have the backbone. Get in the way. Walk with the wind. It’s all going to work out.
There is virtually nothing I wouldn’t be willing to do, to try and make sure that children have a fair shake in life.
Sometimes you can be one of the best, but you don’t accept that if you don’t get the ring or win the Super Bowl. There’s a lot of good teams between the Super Bowl winner and other teams. Once the Super Bowl is over, we lump everyone into the other 31, and that’s not fair.
‘Floating Worlds,’ which received a fair amount of attention when it was first published, deserves rediscovery.
My thinking is, if we’re setting out to make comedy in which nothing is off limits, then everybody is fair game.

But often times, I feel like I’m so blessed, it’s not fair. That what I’m doing is not contributing to the good of the world.

As a journalist, I’m not supposed to be the subject, but as an author, I’m fair game – another ingredient in the media soup.
A great business at a fair price is superior to a fair business at a great price.
I also remember the second band I was in ever. We were called Hybrid. We got a show at this local street fair, and we were playing on the back of a flatbed truck. There was an ad in the paper, and it said that ‘Hybird’ is playing. I was so mad.
If you’re low-income in the United States, you have a higher chance of going to jail than you do of getting a four-year degree. And that doesn’t seem entirely fair.
A good leader must be fair.
I come here not as a polished politician but as a woman who has had her fair share of life’s knocks.
Sleep resistance, bouts of insomnia, nightmares, night terrors, crawling into bed with parents in the middle of the night – all these are so common among children, it seems fair to call them ‘normal.’

No man should have cowboys boots in his wardrobe. That’s fair enough, isn’t it? Unless you’re a cowboy, of course.
As governor, I don’t want my fair share. I want more than my fair share.
Vanity is great motivation, to be fair.
I live in the country, so I get a fair amount of exercise. We heat our house with wood, so I split wood. We also live on a steep hill, and I have to rake and put in cross-stitches to keep the road from washing out when there’s a big rain.
When public men indulge themselves in abuse, when they deny others a fair trial, when they resort to innuendo and insinuation, to libel, scandal, and suspicion, then our democratic society is outraged, and democracy is baffled.
That attitude that fighting is probably not fair, but you have to defend yourself anyway and damage the enemy, has been profoundly consequential as far as my political activism goes.
My label in Toronto was ‘Stand Pat’ and I think that was a fair assessment. I tried to be patient, but if a trade came along – big or small – that I thought should be made, I would make it.
In math, you could get 100 percent. It was very fair. That’s what I liked about math. You could figure it out, and the teacher couldn’t have a stupid opinion about it.

For me, human rights simply endorse a view of life and a set of moral values that are perfectly clear to an eight-year-old child. A child knows what is fair and isn’t fair, and justice derives from that knowledge.
Life – life is not fair. But it can be extraordinary.
When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.

Middle America believes in fair play, an equal opportunity to succeed or to fail.
When I became successful, I put up a caution. I didn’t think it was fair to have the shadow of that kind of success thrown on my family. And I was cautious about being taken by things that could destroy you.
I’m still ambivalent about Hollywood. I think that’s why I made ‘Star 80.’ To deal with the ambivalence. I really wanted to succeed Gene Kelly, and I thought it was a fair bet.
Everything is so unstable in these times of progress at any cost, and social customs and methods of life alter so rapidly, that a few years now suffice to change completely the face of usages which, at their inception, bade fair to outlive the age – so enthusiastically were they welcomed by the public.
The PGA Championship, last of the majors each year, might well be accustomed to having fun poked at it by the print press for being mired in August, but this isn’t fair.

I don’t care what a man is as long as he treats me right. He can be a gambler, a hustler, someone everybody else thinks is obnoxious, I don’t care so long as he’s straight with me and our dealings are fair.
We believe in fair exchange rates and Japan doesn’t practice that. They have massive U.S. dollar reserves, and they use them to intervene regularly.
Sunscreen is my number 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 tip. I’m a fanatic, partially because I live in L.A. and have fair skin and freckles, and partially because of my kids. My mom always made me wear sunscreen and I’m trying to be that mom for them.
Americans are fighters. We’re tough, resourceful and creative, and if we have the chance to fight on a level playing field, where everyone pays a fair share and everyone has a real shot, then no one – no one can stop us.
I think UNC and Lorrie Fair is a perfect match.
I think that I set such high standards for myself that sometimes I expect other people to live up to these standards, and it’s not fair because they’re not setting the same goals for themselves.
If people use Chrome, we make less money on our service and that’s fine by us because that is fair competition. I wouldn’t put Google on a pedestal for competition, but they aren’t telling users not to use OpenDNS.

I’m one of the nicest, most fair people I know.
It’s not fair that the accused is not protected from adverse publicity whilst the accuser is guaranteed anonymity, whatever the verdict.
The fate of the Celt in the British Empire bids fair to resemble that of the Greeks among the Romans.
I don’t read a lot of magazines, but when I’m traveling, I’ll pick up a copy of ‘Vanity Fair’ to read on the plane – it’s like a full meal! The articles are so good, especially the crime stories. Browsing the Web is more like snacking – but I live on snacks.
The first bill that President Obama signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. I think it says something about his priorities that the first bill he put his name on has my name on it too. As he said that day with me by his side, ‘Making our economy work means making sure it works for everyone.’
In the 21st century, I think it’s fair to say, homosexuality is more accepted in Britain and it’s wonderful that my generation has been able to grow up with that.
Workers want to be paid an honest, fair wage for the work they do. They want to be able to provide for their families by being justly compensated for their part in helping grow the U.S. economy. They deserve to be able to put food on the table and receive health care and other benefits.
I will say we now, in the polling in Wisconsin, much different than many other races, the public didn’t perceive that we were getting a fair shake from the media.
I’m a good dad and a fair husband and I work quite a bit. That takes up a fair amount of time.

I won all the blue ribbons for canning at the state fair.

We must ensure strong, fair and robust workplace rights remain in our country’s DNA.
I’ve loved ‘Vanity Fair’ since I was 16 years old. You know, we’re all colonial hangovers in India, steeped in English literature. It is one of these novels that I read under the covers at my convent boarding school in Simla.
My father has fair skin, and my mother is dark, and I’m kind of cafe au lait.
I probably carry a fair amount of sarcasm in my daily life.
The regime is afraid of the people because it knows that free and fair elections will bring about its end.
At the time, the only options were playing the local county fair. Now with American Idol and younger recording artists that have come out, there is more of an opportunity.
The liberal ideal is that everyone should have fair access and fair opportunity. This is not equality of result. It’s equality of opportunity. There’s a fundamental difference.
If DreamWorks and Disney need that name to sell the cartoon and get people in the seats, that’s what they need. It’s not fair, but there’s plenty of other work for us to do.

Unless the great majority of Americans not only have, but believe they have, a fair chance, the better American future will be dangerously compromised.
Labor should be recognized as entitled to consult with management in the mutual interest. Labor cannot be driven, and business cannot be successful unless the men employed in it are enthusiastic and loyal. That loyalty cannot be obtained with a big stick; it must be based upon fair dealing and sympathy.
I repeat for the umpteenth time, without making apologies: My children have had more than their fair share of presidency under their father. There cannot be any hereditary transfer of power.
European citizens expect that there will be also a fair system inside the European Union and in the euro, and that’s why we have to have quite hard discipline.
I’ve definitely had my fair share at shaking my fists at the gods of Hollywood, but I’m learning that I cannot think that way or I will go crazy.
I think a big test we all face in life on a regular basis is that discouragement test. Life’s not always fair, but I believe if you keep doing the right thing, God will get you to where you are.
Conservative policies have on the whole worked – insofar as any set of policies can be said to ‘work’ in the real world. Conservatives of the Reagan-Bush-Gingrich-Bush years have a fair amount to be proud of.
The development of the food industry for both domestic and export markets relies on a regulatory framework that both protects the consumer and assures fair trading practices in food.
I have warned many times about the guaranteed dangers of betting with your heart instead of your head – big darkness, soon come – but every once in a while you get a fair chance to have it both ways, and the annual NCAA basketball Tournament is one of them.
The big news already broke. The file-sharing and all that stuff, it’s a done deal. And I think figuring out how to make that a fair exchange for the people that make music is still an issue.
Well, he doesn’t make me laugh. I think I’ve got a fair sense of humour but I can’t really see it in him. I’ve listened to his show on the radio on a Saturday morning, and that’s a load of mince as well.
The lover of life makes the whole world into his family, just as the lover of the fair sex creates his from all the lovely women he has found, from those that could be found, and those who are impossible to find.
What the president is doing is flooding the job market with illegal immigrants that he is giving temporary work permits to. Not fair.
To be fair to the Inquisition, they only used confessions extracted after the torture had ended, which let them claim that admissions had been freely given; the fact that the torture would have started again if they hadn’t confessed was a minor detail.
There’s probably one more story about Bosnia that I’d like to do, because I spent a fair amount of time on the Serb side of the lines, which isn’t apparent in the other books.
Theater criticism should be visceral, at least on some level, an articulation of that fierceness and passion. I usually do a fair amount of research before I see a show – on the history of previous productions (if it’s a revival) and the creative team.
I had done a fair bit of traveling during the holidays in my school days with my guitar and discovered that I could live on it. Admittedly, I traveled with a sleeping bag but I could always find somewhere to lay my head.
I like Modest Mouse. I’m our biggest fan. And enemy. I won’t waste people’s time by putting out a Modest Mouse record just because. That’s fair, right?

No man can call himself liberal, or radical, or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if his work depends in any way on the unpaid or underpaid labor of women at home, or in the office.
If there are two kinds of people in the world – DC Comics people and Marvel Comics people – what kind am I? Well, to be honest… I’m a Wildstorm kinda guy. In the interest of full and fair disclosure, I write for Wildstorm. But even if I didn’t, I’d love what they do. No, seriously, I’d love their stuff.
The rose is the flower and handmaiden of love – the lily, her fair associate, is the emblem of beauty and purity.
If the Constitution is worth anything, if the Declaration of Independence is worth anything, if the boys who died on the field of battle did not die in vain, fair employment practices are correct and necessary.
I’ve always believed that a good twist is one that, when it is presented to the audience, half of them say, ‘I saw that coming.’ And half of them are completely and totally shocked. Because if you don’t have the half that saw it coming, then it wasn’t fair: You never gave the audience a chance to guess it.
A decent government with an effective, but not gratuitously violent, police force and a fair court system are essential. This deters and incapacitates psychopaths, bullies and hotheads – and if it earns the confidence of the people, they don’t have to become violent in self-defence.
The Fair Elections Act in its final form will require every single voter to produce ID showing who they are before they vote. Away from the noise in political Ottawa, everyone understands that this is common sense.
Despite the fact that feminists say they’re not getting a fair deal, women are still very powerful.
There’s no comparison between NPR and the propaganda that you hear from Rush or from Sean Hannity, the news movement conservatives that are just laying out, slathering out the disinformation and the lies, as I discuss in my book, ‘Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right.’
As you can see from ‘Symptomatic of a relationship gone sour’ I have definitely done my fair share of sinning, so I just want to recount my story and how I have come to terms with myself.
It’s been painful to see the people that you love be attacked when you know it’s not fair or true.

The building of America has had its fair share of mistakes, but it’s a constitution that’s the jewel of democracy, the envy of many, and it’s the most generous nation in the world.
Our regulatory bodies strive to create honest dealings, fair trades, and a situation in which no one has an advantage over anyone else. But human beings aren’t honest. And all trades are made because one person thinks he’s getting the better of the other, and the other person thinks the same.
Patients are becoming aware that they’re being taken for a ride by big pharma companies. They charge high prices and have never cared for India’s healthcare. There are 23 million cases of cancer every year and India has a fair share of that.
My son is trying to be a sports writer, and my daughter is a college student. She wants to be a comedy writer, and she’s at film school. I discouraged both of them early on from getting involved in Starbucks. I didn’t think it would be fair; plus, they didn’t have any interest anyway.
I was 8 years old when I went across the street from my house to a fair, and they always had a used book sale. For a quarter I bought a book called ‘Come On Seabiscuit.’ I loved that book. It stayed with me all those years.
The myth of the liberal media empowers conservatives to control debate in the United States to the point where liberals cannot even hope for a fair shake anymore.
To me, a tax heaven is where everyone pays their fair share. In that respect, I am not quite sure we are in tax heaven yet.
I think the touchstone is to give consumers a full, fair choice without the power of a monopoly operating system pushing them in a direction that free competition might or might not achieve.
I’ve done that I was touring a couple of years ago with R. Kelly and the Lillith Fair, I would do the late night underground gigs as well because it’s always around those times that there was a hot song, either on the radio or in the clubs, it would just be simultaneous.
I think it’s fair to say that the Nobel Prize is the highest honor any scientist or artist can achieve.
And as pale sickness does invade, Your frailer part, the breaches made, In that fair lodging still more clear, Make the bright guest, your soul, appear.
Life’s not fair, is it? Some of us drink champagne in the fast lane, and some of us eat our sandwiches by the loose chippings on the A597.
As for reputation, though it be a glorious instrument of advancing our Master’s service, yet there is a better than that: a clean heart, a single eye, and a soul full of God. A fair exchange if, by the loss of reputation, we can purchase the lowest degree of purity of heart.
I always felt sorry for the sidekick as a kid. They never got their due and it left a very bad taste in the mouth – they are defined by a subordinate relationship to someone else. I always felt like a bit of sidekick when I was a kid and it didn’t feel fair.
Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to ensure fair pay for women in the workplace. In addition, he succeeded in getting a measure passed to end discrimination against gays in the military.
Do we really want the FCC to conduct investigations and issue warnings to radio talk show hosts nationwide who simply discuss the important issues of our time? The Constitution says ‘freedom of speech,’ not ‘freedom of government-approved fair speech in rationed amounts.’
There’s always such a rush to judgment. It makes a fair trial hard to get.
You can relax more when you’re playing a silly character than when you’re playing a really rigid character. But to be fair, I think George Clooney is a bigger teenager than any of the ‘Twilight’ cast. He’s the guy throwing a football at your head and then hiding around the corner, pretending it wasn’t him!
It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself.
When it comes to idiots, America’s got more than its fair share. If idiots were energy, it would be a source that would never run out.
I believe one of the main roles of Government is to keep our economy free and fair.
I don’t like watching television too much; it tires me out for some reason. But I saw a fair bit of ‘Game of Thrones’ because it was so good. I mostly watched episodes that I wasn’t in.
When you’re taking the country through difficult times and difficult decisions you’ve got to take the country with you. That means permanently trying to make the argument that what you’re doing is fair and seen to be fair.
Nothing’s worse than a guy who loses fair and square and then whines about it.
I don’t think we can go back to the old days. But I think that what the government needs to do is it needs to make sure that the pricing is fair, that you don’t have monopolies out there, so that people don’t have a chance to compete fairly.
I had heard some women make comments about my chest, so why not show it off? Nobody wants to see a fat guy in tights. That wouldn’t be fair to the fans.

I like to be a very fair person.
I think the set looks great. It’s kind of like Battlestar Galactica meets like the Italian furniture fair.
People challenge my nerd cred all the time. I just show them the photo of me winning my middle-school science fair, wearing my Casio calculator watch and eyeglasses so big they look like they can see the future.
To be fair, lying is part and parcel of public life. Every politician has lied about something because they are owned by the special interest groups that finance their elections.

What I fell in love with as a child was ‘My Fair Lady,’ ‘Funny Face,’ ‘American in Paris,’ and ‘Singin’ in the Rain.’ Just perfect movies to me and I was dancing. I started ballet when I was three. And I fell in love with those movies and fell in love with Audrey Hepburn and Leslie Caron.
A full and fair discussion is essential to democracy.
It’s almost impossible to explain how little the NBA amounted to when I started covering it in 1963. It wasn’t fair to call it bush, although everybody did. It was simply small – only nine teams – and insignificant.
You cannot show people only the petals and not the thorns. It’s not fair to them.
‘Fair’ is, like, this incredibly overused term in negotiations: ‘I just want what’s fair.’ ‘What’s the fair market price?’
Doing Shakespeare once is not fair to the play. I have been in Shakespeare plays when it’s not until the last two or three performances when I even understand certain things. In the old days star actors would travel the world doing the same parts over and over again.
We hope and we’ve made clear that the forces need to come out. It needs to be full and complete withdrawal. Our position is it needs to be done as soon as possible so that the elections can be free, fair and free of outside influence.
I think people have a legitimate right to minimise their tax obligations if they can, but they should pay their fair whack. I do think it’s important to be transparent.
From food trucks to hot dog stands to county fair favorites, ‘street food’ has enjoyed a rich and storied history in American cuisine. However, street food has been around for thousands of years. In fact, street food is believed to have originated as far back as Ancient Rome.
On the other hand, it is not fair to say that changes in federal policy have caused our tuition to rise faster. Every economic argument imaginable would indicate that we should raise tuition at a faster rate than we do.
There is a word in German, called gerechterweise, which means fairness. I need to be fair, it’s just the part of my personality.
It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.
I have a gorgeous coat that I found at a vintage fair – it’s just so elegant. Unfortunately, it has a massive hole underneath the arm, as I think I may have worn it to death!
In 1993, as House Democratic Leader, I led the fight to pass the Clinton-Gore economic plan – a plan designed to slash the deficit, invest in education, cut taxes for working families, and ask the wealthy among us to pay their fair share… Not one Republican voted for that plan. They said it was a job killer.
I’m not opposed to free trade if it’s fair trade. But I am opposed to bad trade deals.
In France, successive waves of Gaul, Visigoth, and Frank have swept over the land and have dominated it. But the fair hair and blue eyes and the clear skin of the conquering races have been submerged by the rising and overflow of the dusky blood of the original population.
I’m changing lineups obviously to give everybody their best opportunity to show what they can do. Just giving everybody their fair chance to assess that properly.

I know from my own personal experience. I was bullied in middle school and high school and went through my fair share of hard times thereafter. Also, one of my really good friends committed suicide when I was in high school.
Given a fair wind, we will negotiate our way into the Common Market, head held high, not crawling in. Negotiations? Yes. Unconditional acceptance of whatever terms are offered us? No.
I don’t think it’s fair to 12-, 13- and 14-year-olds to say ‘Show us you’re a winner right now!’ Winning isn’t everything. I’ll never buy that thing that if a boy loses a football game, he’s a loser in life.
They said this is Vanity Fair, and I said, Oh, I already take the magazine. They said Annie Leibovitz wants to take your picture and I thought, How nice!

Fair treatment in the work force is no longer exclusively a labor issue, nor is it a women’s issue – it is a fundamental economic issue.
In the space of three weeks, I met a fair bunch of the guys who were just starting those little programmers’ co-ops, and everybody was talking about starting businesses.
We’ve got to be fair. You can’t say a place that has strip joints is sacred ground. We’ve got to be just. We’ve got to speak the truth. We’ve got to have justice for everybody. We’re a country of justice for all, not justice for non-Muslims only or some groups and not for others.
Slovakia’s joining the OECD in 1999 is totally dependent on meeting economic reforms required such as transparency and legislation that permits fair and open conduct of trade and business.
Global governance cannot be limited to the crafting of instruments related to the promotion of democracy. A key component must be the creation of fair and equitable rules to enhance the development prospects of developing countries.
I usually have a lip balm in my bag and mascara as well. I don’t really wear much make-up, but I like mascara because I’ve got fair colouring.
All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting ‘the rich’ to pay ‘their fair share’ is part of a big charade. This is not about economics, it is about politics.
I am part of the World Economic Forum Global Council on Robotics and AI, and we spend a fair amount of our time together as a group discussing ethics, best practices, and the like.
We must reign in overspending by ridding government of outmoded programs, making Big Oil pay their fair share, repealing massive tax breaks for corporations that ship jobs overseas, and enacting a tax code that no longer favors millionaires and billionaires.
For at least another hundred years we must pretend to ourselves and to every one that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not. Avarice and usury and precaution must be our gods for a little longer still.
Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.
When the venture has been made of dealing with historical events and characters, it always seems fair towards the reader to avow what liberties have been taken, and how much of the sketch is founded on history.
Writing historical novels can be dangerous. We need to be as accurate and as fair about the historical record as we can be, at the same time as creating our fictional characters and, hopefully, telling a good story. The challenge is weaving the fiction into the history.
To be fair, life is too short. There is no point holding grudges or anything like that.
Cycling is a great way to learn about your city. I love being outdoors, especially in good weather, but I’m not a fair weather cyclist. I’m happy to get a red nose in the cold.
Love consists in giving without getting in return; in giving what is not owed, what is not due the other. That’s why true love is never based, as associations for utility or pleasure are, on a fair exchange.
It’s fair to say that, for much of my lifetime, New Zealand certainly was a property-owning democracy and working people, ordinary people, had assets.
There’s usually one piece in ‘Vanity Fair’ every month that grabs me, but when it presents hatchet jobs without substantiation to impress its liberal friends, I laugh first, then toss.
I’d like to act as a fair, easy-going, kind man at some point.
None of the constitutional, legal or other principles bars me from returning to the judiciary, since the judiciary remains independent if the actors remain independent and fair.
I tried to be honest and fair, helped the talented and those in need.
If you’re in charge of managing domain name space you should treat everybody who asks for a registration the same. Whatever that is – whether it’s nice or ugly or whatever – just be fair, treat them all the same.
All I want is for people to listen to it with unbiased ears, and decide for themselves. I just don’t want them to be dictated to by the media, or have preconceptions about it. If you like it, great. If you don’t, fair enough.
One of the things I had to learn as a writer was to trust the act of writing. To put myself in the position of writing to find out what I was writing. I did that with ‘World’s Fair,’ as with all of them. The inventions of the book come as discoveries.
Citadel is a global technology leader, recognized for its work to level the playing field for investors and make markets more fair, transparent and efficient. I look forward to leading this exemplary team as we grow this global business.
Play fair. Don’t hit people. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Men are fair, and they have learned not to personalize anger – they can disagree with you and argue to the bone, but afterward they still consider you a nice person with whom the underlying human relationship need not be altered.
As a fair skinned blonde, I disappeared into the background. I’ve always been a loner, so I suppose dyeing my hair red was a way to say, ‘I’m here, I exist, I’m a human being and you can’t just push me aside.’
And she was fair as is the rose in May.
All over the world, social innovation is tackling some of the most pressing problems facing society today – from fair trade, distance learning, hospices, urban farming and waste reduction to restorative justice and zero-carbon housing. But most of these are growing despite, not because of, help from governments.
That it is logical, fair and reasonable to maintain the purchasing power of an hour’s work in terms of goods and services the employee must purchase in his daily living.
When people talk about the great quarterbacks, it’s almost exclusively the guys who have won Super Bowls. There have been some very good ones who hardly get mentioned because they never won the big one. I don’t know if that’s fair, but that’s the way it is.
The prosecution has an ethical duty to ensure not just that they get a conviction when the defendant is guilty, but also to ensure that they get it by means of fair trial, and that means a fair trial for the defense as well as the prosecution.
What I agree with is that we need a significantly changed taxation system. And the one that I’ve advocated is based on tithing, because I think God is a pretty fair guy. And he said, you know, if you give me a tithe, it doesn’t matter how much you make.
I am a firm believer in free but fair trade. However the United States should not be on the losing end of trade agreements that are not enforced. It is time that we make China play fairly.
I’m not running away from the fact that I had previously said I did not contemplate a major increase, and that was a fair statement of the Government’s state of mind at the time I made that.
Walter Scott has no business to write novels, especially good ones. It is not fair. He has fame and profit enough as a poet, and should not be taking the bread out of the mouths of other people.
African-Americans don’t need handouts and donations; we can hire ourselves if white corporate America does business with us in a fair and equitable way.
The ‘Bird’s Nest’ National Stadium, which I helped to conceive, is designed to embody the Olympic spirit of ‘fair competition.’ It tells people that freedom is possible but needs fairness, courage and strength.
A fair question could be posed in this fashion: If people are not obeying existing laws, what makes us think they would obey any new laws?
When your country is in a costly war, with our soldiers sacrificing abroad and our nation facing a debt crisis at home, being asked to pay your fair share isn’t class warfare – it’s patriotism.
A company’s best advantage should be a quality product offered at the right price. That fair competition is what drives innovation.
I support both a Fair Tax and a Flat Tax plan that would dramatically streamline the tax system. A Fair Tax would replace all federal taxes on personal and corporate income with a single national tax on retail sales, while a Flat Tax would apply the same tax rate to all income with few if any deductions or exemptions.
I’m entitled to collect my fair share of community property without being called names.
The debate analysis in the media is rampant with contest analogies of war, baseball, boxing, football; you name it. Any testosterone contest imaginable is fair game.
Before you contradict an old man, my fair friend, you should endeavor to understand him.
I’m not invited to the Vanity Fair dinner where they watch the Oscars – or even the Oscars themselves – so I sit at home and watch it with a bunch of close friends.
The greatest thing that prepared me for editing ‘Vanity Fair’ was having four kids because you just learn to subjugate your ego with the greater interest in mind.
No constitution is or can be perfectly symmetrical, what it can and must be is generally accepted as both fair and usable.
I respect the people who buy my records and come to my concerts. It’s only fair that I always try to give them the very best that’s in me. After all, I need them more than they need me.
Washington is designed not to solve problems. Congress is so beholden to the money that any solution in the general interest will be frustrated and subverted by the corporate interests who feel they will be damaged by progress, fair play and justice.
I’ve had to work hard all my life, and I will never, ever ask a fan or reader to pay for something I’ve rushed. It’s not fair to them, and I will never give them anything except my absolute best.

Ferguson and St. Louis County are not the first places that we have become engaged to ensure fair and equitable policing, and they will not be the last. The Department of Justice will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that the Constitution has meaning for all communities.
I hope I will be remembered as a good father and a fair employer. And a good host, of course!
The world is not based on fairness. Human beings can rise to fairness, can administer something that makes it fair or just. But that’s not God.
As a boy I used to go to the Chamber of Horrors at the annual fair, to look at the wax figures of Emperors and Kings, of heroes and murderers of the day. The dead now had that same unreality, which shocks without arousing pity.
My father could be very strict, but very fair. His father was the same. We all respected my grandfather; he was the head of the clan. Every morning, we all had to say good morning and kiss his hand. But not me. I jumped on his lap and bit him.
I can’t control what’s fair and unfair. I can’t control the nature of the business or the nature of society or the nature of the world, but what I can control is how I choose to see the world and what I choose to put back into it.
We are determined that our nation shall cease to be a burden on other countries but shall contribute positively to world prosperity, while observing fully the fair trade practices in international commerce.

I know so many amazing actors who don’t get work… and then there are a bunch of real duds that work all the time. The industry is just not fair in that way.
That white uniform was her ‘pass’ to get into white places with us – the grocery store, the state fair, the movies. Even though this was the 70s and the segregation laws had changed, the ‘rules’ had not.
If you tell people, ‘that old banger of yours, we’re going to tax the hell out of it,’ they’ll rightly tell you to get lost. But if you tell people that when they next buy a car, the tax will be adjusted so that the cleanest ones will cost less and the polluting ones will cost more, most people would say ‘fair enough.’
If Obama has his way, the change that is coming is a new America: ‘fair,’ leveled and social democratic. Obama didn’t get elected to warranty your muffler. He’s here to warranty your life.
I was a firm believer that every cricketer needs to get a fair chance.
My father was a Tuskegee Airmen captain in the Air Force and a very strong personality. He believed in fairness and ethics and living up to the commitments you make to others. He ultimately became a judge, and he would talk to me over and over about how important it is to be fair.
I’m not afraid of death, but I’m not courting it, either. If you have lived well, it is the fair conclusion to life.
He was just trying to tease me – I knew that later – but he said he’d have to leave because it wasn’t fair to have anyone in the room who was going to make fun of what he had to say. He had a good sense of humor, really.
Balance the federal budget now, not 15 years from now, not 20 years from now, but now. And throw out the entire federal tax system, replace it with a fair tax, a consumption tax, that by all measurements is just that. It’s fair.
I call on the international community to be fair to the Iraqi people. My position is that we respect international resolutions but in return demand justice and accountability for those who stole Iraq’s money.
I did my fair share of stupid stuff in high school, like anyone. I had a healthy fear of my parents, and I certainly never wanted to disappoint them. That would be the worst thing I could ever do.
If one person is spending all of their income on clothes, travel, hobbies, and entertaining, and one person is saving it, that may not be quite fair if and when you guys split up, depending on what the law is and what you decided to do.
Humans will always babble. If someone wants to tweet that they can’t decide whether to wear blue socks or brown socks, then fair enough. But when sharing becomes automated, I get the heebie-jeebies.
I’ve had a fair amount of experience with snakes, and I find them to be pretty honest in terms of how you read their body language and emotions. They’ll tell you when they’re grumpy. They’ll tell you when they’re okay.
Art is why I get up in the morning but my definition ends there. You know I don’t think its fair that I’m living for something I can’t even define.
What we set out to do was to ensure that this system of fair shares and the planning and controls continued after the war, and when we won, that’s what we did.
In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.
We have a system that allows us to manage a free and fair election, free of fraud, free of intimidation, and that’s what we delivered on election day, and we’re very very proud of it.
I had a lot of respect for Biggie, and it was just a weird, kinda difficult thing. When I’m doing touchy interviews like that, I just try to be fair to both parties.
I’m criticized by the feminists, by the Jewish establishment, by Canadian nationalists. And why not? I’ve had my pot shots at them. I’m fair game.
Nothing would catch me off guard, because I understand the world I live in. I understand it very well. And the world I live in is not necessarily a fair or just world. I have dealt with these injustices for the bigger part of my life.
To be fair, there was one season a couple of years ago when I really got into ‘Love Island.’ My partner was super into it. It was an absolutely fascinating, in-depth look of humanity through the guys of ‘Love Island.’
There was no question that in our house doing well, doing it the right way, school, sports – there was an expectation. One of the things I’ve taken away from that is that I’m unafraid to expect a fair amount from people. It makes them so much better – you’re doing them a disservice if you don’t.
Rather than saying that the commissioner is hired by the owners and therefore is subservient to them, you have to look at whether or not the players are getting a fair shake.
It’s not fair to compare one artist to another because they all come with their own sort of elements to the picnic, you know.

Sure, we’ve had our fair share of ups and downs, but I don’t know if we’ve had more than any other rock band… we just have a way of getting ourselves into hot water.
I prefer more spicy food to your Italian to be fair.
Happiness quantification sounds a bit wishy-washy, sure, and through a series of carefully administered surveys across the globe, economists and psychologists have certainly confronted a fair number of sticky issues around how to measure, and even define, happiness.
The U.S. views Morocco as an important friend, and we applaud your political and economic reforms that culminated with the recent parliamentary elections that were widely reported to have been conducted in a fair and open manner.
Alia and Shaheen have a smart father and have got good genes. But it’s not fair that people expect them to do as well as their father.
We should be tolerant, fair, open, and we should understand the rights that all people have in our society.
I support legal immigration. I don’t support amnesty because it is not fair to people standing in line at consulates around the world.
To be fair, my analysis failed to spell out Obama’s first-term accomplishments, although I did acknowledge his ‘enormous skills’ and tried to focus readers on the distinction between good and great presidencies.
We think of medieval England as being a place of unbelievable cruelty and darkness and superstition. We think of it as all being about fair maidens in castles, and witch-burning, and a belief that the world was flat. Yet all these things are wrong.
I made my fair share of mistakes.
I am very gender fluid and feel more like I wake up every day sort of gender neutral. I cop a fair bit of flack for going from ‘such a babe to such a boy.’
For my type of story and my kind of writing, I think ‘Vanity Fair’ is the right forum.
It wouldn’t be fair to say that conservatives cherish property the way liberals cherish equality. But it would be fair to say that the takings clause is the conservatives’ recipe for judicial activism just as they say liberals have misused the equal protection clause.
I know I have a successful career, a successful life. If I sit and say, ‘Look, I have a comfortable life,’ and I… just think about myself, I don’t think that would be fair. That would be very selfish. Because everything I do in my life is to benefit my people.
That’s what liberalism is all about, is promoting incompetence on the basis it’s fair, because people would be the best if they weren’t discriminated against.
Everything that I have professionally, and so much of what I have personally, is because of this great, fair city, and to see it being drowned like this is almost unbearable.
I think the key attributes for a good speaker are someone that’s articulate and someone that puts a fair amount of humour into what they do.
Because appearing to be fair is part of being fair, most mainstream news organizations discourage marching for causes, displaying political bumper stickers or giving cash to candidates.

I don’t want you to apologize for being rich; I want you to acknowledge that in America, we all should have to pay our fair share.
You have had indeed a fair trial. It is a shocking thing when a judge of your high office is shown to have betrayed the truth and his honor, and I sentence you to the penitentiary.
If you’re at an antiques fair, and have been unable to beat the dealer down earlier in the day, pay a return visit at the end. They may be more inclined to accept your offer, rather than having to pack the piece up and take it home.
The universe is not fair and it is never going to be fair.
The world is a fickle place, and it’s not fair. But if you’re getting most of your rewards from you, then you can use that as a kind of compass, and you can be secure in the fact that you’re working for the right reason, and you’re going in the right direction.
I think it is one of the fundamentals, not only of the European Union but also of free trade, that competition is fair.
So I’ve done my fair share of theater. I have also been very fortunate in that I’ve been able to come to New York two or three times a year just to see as many shows as possible. I think the live theater culture here is incredible.
To many people, ‘biodiversity’ is almost synonymous with the word ‘nature,’ and ‘nature’ brings to mind steamy forests and the big creatures that dwell there. Fair enough. But biodiversity is much more than that, for it encompasses not only the diversity of species, but also the diversity within species.
What politicians do is they never get the rhetoric wrong, and the price they pay is they don’t speak the truth as they see it. Now, I will speak truth as I see it, and sometimes I don’t get the rhetoric right. I think that’s a fair trade-off.
So, Mr. President, what is wrong with the fair employment practice bill?
I didn’t think it was fair to my music to label me as the daughter of somebody – I didn’t think it described me very well and I didn’t think it had anything to do with my music.
I think it’s fair to say more adultery goes on in hotels than any other place in the world.
Where he was, where his cells were, where his logistical channels were, how he communicated. Who his allies were. Who donated to them. I think it’s fair to say the entire range of sources were brought to bear.
Fear not; and the God of mercies grant a full gale and a fair entry into His kingdom, which may carry sweetly and swiftly over the bar, that you find not the rub of death.
Organising free and fair elections is more important than the result itself.
Our platform calls for a balanced deficit reduction plan where the wealthy pay their fair share. And when your country is in a costly war, with our soldiers sacrificing abroad and our nation facing a debt crisis at home, being asked to pay your fair share isn’t class warfare – it’s patriotism.
When you realize that life isn’t fair, you don’t act out, you don’t get overly wasted, you don’t get self-indulgent. You just move forward.
Any time you criticize these young guys, they call you a hater. They never ask you if the criticism is fair or not.
