"The Most Important Political Event"

"The only reason I am here right now is because the most important political event, at this point, in our lifetimes is going to happen two weeks from now. I’m here to talk about the election and not this aging intern whose greatest moment was being attacked by Matt Drudge."

Monica Lewinsky, "aging intern"

"That Really Saved Me"

"I found God doing Fury. I became a Christian man, and not in a f***ing bullshit way - in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me."

"Real Pleasure in Killing"

"We believe she is sound of mind, but simply took satisfaction, and real pleasure in killing."

Daniela Poggiali, Italian nurse expected in 38 deaths

Famous Last Words

  1. “Hurry it up, you Hoosier bastard! I could hang a dozen men while you’re screwing around!” Carl Panzram, infamous serial killer
  2. “Soldiers, Fire!” Michel Ney, French soldier and military commander, after defeat at Waterloo (refusing to be blindfolded)
  3. "I did not get my SpaghettiOs, I got spaghetti. I want the press to know this.” Thomas J. Grasso, who strangled an 87-year-old woman with her Christmas tree lights
  4. “I think that governor’s phone is broke. He hadn’t called yet.” Jeffrey David Matthews, after having his execution postponed three times due to Oklahoma's governor

"Engineering an Oil Price Decline"

"The earlier U.S. sanctions on Russia were fairly tame and Europe showed almost no willingness to go along. However, engineering an oil price decline is something that hits (Russian President) Putin where it hurts without hurting Europe in the process because Europe actually benefits from lower oil prices. If this escalates much further, Putin may need to use his two most powerful weapons: shutting off natural gas to Europe and shutting down the New York Stock Exchange with cyber warfare...either will be disastrous for the global economy. So, we may see much worse to come."

"The Woman Who Put Others at Risk"

"People are so freaked out about Ebola that the problem NBC has now is that whenever they put her on the air, some news consumers are going to see the woman who put others at risk, rather than the reporter and professional with great experience."

Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC News chief medical editor
