"Just what the world's been waiting for. The Charge of the Trenchcoat Brigade."
— John Constantine, Hellblazer
"It should be noted at this time that Freddie's disguise was much more efficient than Walter's. A man wearing an all-concealing trenchcoat in summer draws attention, and if he's feeding ducks it's automatically assumed that he's a spy, politician, or space alien."
Chris: I do think itís worth noting that in a movie where people shoot lasers out of their eyes and have unbreakable metal bones, the single most unbelievable thing is that a dude dressed like this could make it more than three steps in the White House in 2003 without being immediately tackled and/or shot.
Matt: Man, heís just a baseball fan who also loves Columbo. Start keeping guys like that off White House tours and you might as well ban all of America. (Salutes, proudly waves flag)
