Aaron: They told me they’d keep me because they could plug me into any story and my salary was in line.

Aaron: Come on, no one’s going to be taken in by a guy with a long red pointy tail. Come on, what’s he going to sound like?…I’m semi serious here. He will be attractive, he’ll be nice, and helpful, he’ll get a job where he influences a great God fearing nation. He’ll never do an evil thing, he’ll never deliberately hurt a living thing – he’ll just bit by little bit lower our standards where they’re important. Just a tiny little bit. Just coax along flash over substance. Just a tiny little bit. And he’ll talk about all of us really being salesman. And he’ll get all the great women.

Blair Litton: Except for socially, you’re my role model.

Aaron: I think we have the kind of friendship were if I were the devil, you’d be the only one I would tell.
