->''"Did yez ever know an Irishman who didn't love a fight?\\
Or who wouldn't stay to see it to the end?\\
Did yez ever know of one who wasn't merry when he's "tight,"\\
Or who wouldn't give his life to save a friend?\\
And who can beat the Irish when it comes to makin' love?\\
The other nations do the best they can;\\
And in other ways they trick us\\
But, sure, they'd never lick us,\\
If they'd stand up and fight us man to man!"''

->''"I have to ask the question, but are the Irish [[MoneyDearBoy desperate for acting work?]] There must be a reason that they allow themselves to be shoehorned into such [[TheThemeParkVersion offensively stereotypical roles]] like they are in ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]''[=’=]s Up the Long Ladder and this narrow minded glimpse of Irish life...All Irish pubs are drunken, infested piss holes (actually [[OnSecondThought that one might be true]]…now they have banned smoking, most pubs do stink of stale beer and piss) populated by rowdy, cheating men and all landlords are [[ReligiousBruiser devoutly religious hunks]] with smouldering looks."''
