They're all crazy. They're all crazy except you and me. Sometimes I have me doubts about you.
(Garrett Fort (1900-1945), U.S. screenwriter. Tod Browning. Attendant, Dracula, watching the inhabitants of the house trying to ward off the vampire (1931).
Need actor name; from the play adapted by Hamilton Deane and John Balderston (1899-1954).)
If you commit a big crime then you are crazy, and the more heinous the crime the crazier you must be. Therefore you are not responsible, and nothing is your fault.
(Peggy Noonan (b. 1950), U.S. author, presidential speechwriter. What I Saw at the Revolution, ch. 2 (1990).
On the insanity verdict handed down to John Hinckley, would- be assassin of President Reagan in 1981, as reported by Noonan and Dan Rather. "The insane are with us, it is true," continued their report. "But so are the calculating. And what they learn from this verdict is that you can do anything; you can wait like a jackal and shoot a man in the head and leave him for dead and buy your way out with clever lawyers and expensive pyschiatrists.")
Let it all hang out. Let it seem bitchy, catty, dykey, frustrated, crazy, nutty, frigid, ridiculous, bitter, embarrassing, man-hating, libelous, pure, unfair, envious, intuitive, low- down, stupid, petty, liberating. We are the women that men have warned us about.
(Robin Morgan (b. 1941), U.S. author, feminist, and child actor. Goodbye to All That (January 1970).)
Just kids! That's about the craziest argument I've ever heard. Every criminal in the world was a kid once. What does it prove?
(Theodore Simonson. Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr.. Jim Bird, The Blob, responding to the suggestion that they not lock up the teens pulling the alien "prank," (1958).
From an original idea by Irvine H. Millgate and actor name.)
He who considers disease results to be the disease itself, and expects to do away with these as diseases, is insane. It is an insanity in medicine, an insanity that has grown out of the milder forms of mental disorder in science, crazy whims.
(James Tyler Kent (1849-1916), U.S. homeopathic teacher, physician. Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy, lecture 1 (1900).)
