We talk about Hollywood being pro-labor, yet about 70% of our industry has been farmed out to Canada, meaning we are losing jobs like crazy. Where’s organized labor asking how we can allow such a thing to happen?
Whom do you speak to about introducing a leap year? Is it heresy to request such a thing? Why do the Jews have one and we don’t?

The attack on ObamaCare was that Congress does not have the power under the Commerce Clause to force a private citizen into a private contractual relationship. If such a thing is permitted to stand, the anti-ObamaCare forces argue, there will be no limit to Congress’s power in the future.
British culture is very cynical sometimes of overt displays of sentimentality, and I think that becomes almost a suspicion of emotion, or a suspicion of someone making a grand statement.

My movie career – if such a thing even exists – is laughable.
I must be honest here; I don’t think there’s such a thing as ‘unconventional’ when it comes to YA. YA readers are the most open-minded in the literary world. They’ll read anything.
I never was a liner note junkie. I didn’t know who produced records or there was such a thing as a straight songwriter. I always assumed that everybody that was singing a song wrote it or made it up.
Why can’t it be awesome to work for a food company? Why can’t we create an environment where people are trying to push each other to do great things, and we’re not trying to steal from anybody – we’re trying to be good to our farmers and run an honorable business, if there is such a thing anymore?
It’s true that a smile can take years off a person – not that such a thing matters in Yoko Ono’s case.

And there is such a thing as a decathlon high. It’s like a rock rolling down hill, picking up momentum. You get better and better.
At 12, I was, like, 6-2. At 13, I was, like, 6-5 or 6-6. I had always stuck out as a bit of a freak, so athletics gave me a chance to make friends and, I guess, find my ‘cool’ vibe, if there’s such a thing when you’re in high school.
When I was a boy, my parents would buy me a new toy and I would destroy it. Oh man, I would destroy it. I don’t know why I would do such a thing. I was a little rough when I was a little kid.

There is such a thing as building a fight, that’s no problem, we’re going into fight each other. That takes certain levels of intensity that you have to have. You’re going in there to hurt the guy and he’s going to do the same to you so that’s understandable.
