Quotes / But Liquor Is Quicker

Oh booze, sweet booze.

Is Dandy
But liquor
Is quicker"
Ogden Nash, "Reflections on Ice-Breaking"

"Everybody moved to new hot spots- the Jockey Club, the Coconut Grove, the Bombay, and later the Cricket Club, the disco in the Quayside Towers. People called the Quayside Towers the "Quaalude Towers". Quaaludes were the other great drug that people were taking along with coke. Quaaludes were more underground when Andy and I snuck them into the punch in our New York discos. In Miami you'd go out for drinks with a broad, and she'd bring her own Quaaludes. It wasn't like today, where a guy will sneak roofies into some poor broad's drinks so he could have his way with her. Back then broads would knock themselves out on purpose."
Jon Roberts and Evan Wright, American Desperado

A number of airlines had stewardess training programs in Miami at that time, so the apartment complexes were flooded with attractive, adventurous young women, much to the budding drug dealer's delight. The Quaaludes were so effective at disarming those women that the men nicknamed the drug "instant pussy"."

We'll tell some jokes
We'll spend some money
And tell some lies
And make us look good in our new neighborhood
Make us look good in our new neighborhood
Make us look good in our new neighborhood"

"We'll feel some muscles
We'll tell some jokes
We'll write the wrong phone numbers on their shirts
'Cause I'm not lookin' to fall in love
You know I'm not lookin' to fall in love"
K.T. Oslin, "Mexico Road"
