MOONLIGHT-ISMS

Maddie: You have the morals of rabbit, the character of a slug, and the brain of a platypus.

Maddie: You believe me?
David: No...But I believe IN You.
Maddie: That was a terrific thing to say...What does it mean?
David: I have no idea.

Maddie: Wipe that stupid grin off your face.
David: This is the smartest grin I know.

Maddie: "I WAS NOT BORN YESTERDAY!"
David: "It's true.  We had lunch yesterday.  If she'd been born, I'd have noticed."

David: Do bears bear? Do bees bee? Do eggs get laid?" Do ducks duck? Do flies fly? Does Spock beam up?

Maddie: The Anselmo Case! The Alselmo Case! I'm sick of hearing about the Anselmo Case! The Anselmo's can solve their own case!

David: Could've fooled me.
Maddie: A gnat with a lobotomy could fool you.

Maddie: You're an animal!
David: Exactly
Maddie: And what does that mean?
David: The male of the species engages in sexual congress no less than forty-six thousand, five hundred and three times from the time he is thirteen until the time he runs out of ammo.
Maddie: You know that and you can't remember our zip code?

David:

Live fast, die young, leave clean underwear.
(his motto)

David:

Women! You can't live with 'em, you can't throw 'em on the curb when your through with 'em!

David: I do benefits for all religions—I'd hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.

David: We're looking for a man with a mole on his nose.
Doorman: Mole on his nose?
Maddie: A mole on his nose!
Doorman: What kind of clothes?
Maddie: What kind of clothes?
David: What kind of clothes do you suppose?
Doorman: What kind of clothes do I suppose would be worn by a man with a mole on his nose? Who knows?
David: Did I happen to mention, did I bother to disclose, this man that we're seeking with a mole on his nose --I'm not sure of his clothes, or anything else, except he's Chinese -- a big clue by itself.
Maddie: How do you do that?
David: Gotta read a lot of Dr. Seuss.
Doorman: I'm sorry to say, I'm sad to report
I haven't seen anyone at all of that sort.
Not a man who's Chinese
with a mole on his nose
with some kind of clothes
that you can't suppose.
So, get away from this door
and get out of this place
or I'll have to hurt you --
put my foot in your face.
David: Oh.
Maddie: Time to go.
David: Time to go.

TRIVIA NOTE: Named after her grandfather, Cy, and her father, Bill, Cybill Shepherd was born February 18, 1950 in Memphis, TN. She won the Miss Teenage Memphis competition in 1966 and graduated Memphis East High School in 1968. That same year she became Model of the year. One of her claims to fame was having dated Elvis Presley when she was nineteen years old.

She parlayed her career as a model into movies when director Peter Bogdanovitch saw her face on the cover of Glamour magazine and cast her in the film The Last Picture Show (1971). Cybill went on to become a successful film and TV actress. Her TV credits included THE YELLOW ROSE/NBC/1983-84 (as Colleen Champion, Texas ranch owner); CYBILL/CBS/1995-98 (as Cybill Sheridan Robbins Woodbine, a struggling middle aged actress ); and the host of talk show MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS/SYN/2000-2001.

In 2003 she starred in the TV movie Martha, Inc.: The Story of Martha Stewart. One of her best roles was as Eula Varner in the 1985 remake of William Faulkner's The Long Hot Summer with Don Johnson. Cybill's look-alike daughter, Clementine Shepherd-Ford is also an actress.

Walter Bruce Willis was born on March 19, 1955, in Idar-Oberstein, West Germany, while his father was stationed in the army. Returning to the States, his family relocated to Penns Grove, New Jersey. After his success with MOONLIGHTING, Bruce left the arena of television to make it big in the movies.

Willis is best known for his role as police detective John McClane in the action packed film Die Hard (1988) and its subsequent sequels. Bruce married (and later divorced in 1998) actress Demi Moore and became one of the founders of the restaurant chain know as Planet Hollywood. In 2002, Willis was named Man of the Year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals.

If you want to get the low-down on the stars of the series MOONLIGHTING read: "Cybill & Bruce: Moonlighting Magic" by Barbara Siegel and Scott Siegel (St. Martin's Press, 1987).


"Moonlighting"
(Lyrics sung by Al Jarreau)

Some walk by night,
Some fly by day,
Nothing could change you,
Set and sure of the way.

There is the sun and moon,
They sing their own sweet tune,
Watch them when dawn is due,
Sharing one space.

We'll walk by night,
We'll fly by day,
Moonlighting strangers
Who just met on the way.
