Episode Twenty-Six: "You've Been Hanging 'Round with an Enemy of the State"

MARY: What happens to the soul when we die, Rhoda?

RHODA: The exception to this, always, is the bodhisattva.

MARY: Nature is wondrous, but it has never fashioned an immortal body.

RHODA: Both are extremely dangerous, of course.

MARY: And as for who coined that central war on terror being in Iraq, it was the General Petraeus and al Qaeda, both leaders there.

TED BAXTER: And it's probably the only thing that they're ever going to agree on -- but that it was a central war on terror. A central war on terror is in Iraq. You don't have to believe Sarah Palin or John McCain on that. I would believe Petraeus and the leader of al Qaeda.

RHODA: We have to assume two things, Mary: nature wishes the phenomenon of Sarah Palin to occur; and nature has not provided us with any means of determining the exact state of ourselves during or after Sarah Palin.

MARY: There 's just too much finger-pointing backwards to ever make us believe that's where you hate going.

RHODA: Maybe the afterlife is a reservoir of de-Baathified souls.

MARY: Yesterday we were losing in Iraq. Today we are winning. The exception to this, always, is the bodhisattva.

We must be the "reservoir tip" the technicians like talking about.

You know, like on a condom.

I think poems should start coming with reservoir tips.

For reservoir dogs, of course.

And why does the poem always end up being Mr. Pink?
