Latka Quotes #2

"In my country, we believe that the only things that separate us from
 the animals are pointless rituals and mindless superstitions."
- Latka Gravas

Episode Honor thy father:
Latka: You know, in my country we have a saying: "Your father, he may beat you. Your father, he may curse you. Your father, he may take your last piece of meat..."
Alex: Go on.
Latka: That's all.
Bobby: You mean that's the whole saying?
Latka: Yeah, it's a small country.

Episode Simka returns:
Vic: I am completely taken by you and I want to love you.
Simka: Well, in my country there is only one thing a girl can say to that, which is one of the reasons I left.

Latka: That's the one thing I like about you. You eat like a swine.

Episode Memories of Cab 804 (2)
Latka (After checking out the damaged 804): I quit

Episode Latka's Cookies:
Latka: You know, I do not want to be rich for the same reasons that other men want to be rich.
Alex: Oh, you mean not for the houses, the cars or the women?
Latka: Oh, maybe it was the same reason

celebrating the release of Lynne Margulies's book Dec 3rd, 2009

celebrating the release of Lynne Margulies's book Dec 3rd, 2009 in Los Angeles.

"Process Media presents an Andy Kaufman tribute: DEAR ANDY KAUFMAN, I HATE YOUR GUTS!

The great provocateur Andy Kaufman died 25 years ago, and tonight we honor his legacy with the release of the new Process book Dear Andy Kauman, I Hate Your Guts! and an evening of rare and never-before-seen solid Kaufman gold pulled from the video archives of Lynne Margulies (Kaufman's girlfriend, director of the Kaufman doc I'm from Hollywood, and author of the book).

Margulies will present a treasure trove of rarities including recently unearthed footage from Kaufman's brief but illustrious career as "Intergender Wrestling Champion of the World," his legendary, never-before-seen performance at LA Improv's "Midnight Snacks" in 1975, and a video, allegedly made by a German film crew, of someone driving to the Kaufman family plot in New Jersey and exhuming Andy's corpse.

And, as a grand finale for the evening, none other than TONY CLIFTON has threatened to appear in his only West Coast performance for more than half a decade. Don't miss it!"
