Quotes: Sadist Show
It is not enough for me to succeed. Others must fail.

Million Dollar Drop was a short-lived game show where couples had $1,000,000 they wagered on trivia knowledge.

It was crushing for people to watch their actual dreams fall away, but the demilich beneath FOX studios demanded a sacrifice of cash tainted with despair.

"Why is everybody we know depressing?"
Stewie Griffin, Family Guy, "Grumpy Old Man"
