“Well, I just wanted to say to you, Larry, as a favor, please don't call me anymore. I think this was an absolute waste. This will not change my life one bit. I personally feel your show is not going to make it much longer, really. You're an annoying guy sitting there in your little funny little sweater every night, leaning over, pressing, you're like a beaver, you're trying to snarl and get information. Larry, go back to Miami and do what you do best—suck up a swamp. Don't bother people, Larry.”


To Larry King on Larry King Live in 1985.
