Frasi Stephen Colbert

„We claim no respectability. There's no status I would not surrender for a joke.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: We claim no respectability. There's no status I would not surrender for a joke. So we don't have to defend anything. Rolling Stone interview (31 October 2006)

„I'm surprised at the reaction it got. I went down there and did exactly what I wanted. I didn't expect it to be some sort of cultural-political line in the sand.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: I'm surprised at the reaction it got. I went down there and did exactly what I wanted. I didn't expect it to be some sort of cultural-political line in the sand. I did the style of jokes I'd been doing for six months. The fact that anybody found it surprising or alarming that I would do that was educational to me. On the reaction to his performance at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, in Entertainment Weekly (4 January 2007)

„The market is not finished. The market still has over nine thousand points to drop.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: The market is not finished. The market still has over nine thousand points to drop. We'll get to Christmas at least. On the Financial crisis of 2008 The Colbert Report (6 October 2008)

„Of course, at the time, we thought we were being farcical.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: Language has always been important in politics, but language is incredibly important to the present political struggle. Because if you can establish an atmosphere in which information doesn't mean anything, then there is no objective reality. The first show we did, a year ago, was our thesis statement: What you wish to be true is all that matters, regardless of the facts. Of course, at the time, we thought we were being farcical. [http://nymag.com/news/politics/22322/ New York Magazine interview] (16 October 2006)

„If anything, they are rearranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: Then you write, "Oh, they're just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic." First of all, that is a terrible metaphor. This administration is not sinking. This administration is soaring. If anything, they are rearranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg.

„He believes the same thing Wednesday that he believed on Monday — no matter what happened Tuesday.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: The greatest thing about this man is he's steady. You know where he stands. He believes the same thing Wednesday that he believed on Monday — no matter what happened Tuesday.

„So be real. That's the best thing you can do.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: Answer honestly... Disabuse me of my ignorance. Don’t let me get away with anything. Don’t try to play my game. Be real. Be passionate. Hold your ideas. Give me resistance. Give me traction I can work against. The friction between reality, or the truly held concerns of the person, and the farcical concerns that I have, or my need to seem important, as opposed to actually understanding what’s true... Where those two things meet is where the comedy happens. So be real. That's the best thing you can do. And call me on my bullshit. On how he would recommend Colbert Report guests approach interviews, on A Conversation with Stephen Colbert (1 December 2006).

„I refuse to believe it's not butter.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: I believe it's yogurt, but I refuse to believe it's not butter.

„I give people the truth, unfiltered by rational argument. I call it the "No Fact Zone".“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: I give people the truth, unfiltered by rational argument. I call it the "No Fact Zone". Fox News, I hold a copyright on that term.

„Before I get started, if anybody needs anything else at their tables, just speak slowly and clearly into your table numbers.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: Before I get started, if anybody needs anything else at their tables, just speak slowly and clearly into your table numbers. Someone from the NSA will be right over with a cocktail.

„I have tender feelings for Nixon, because everybody has warm feelings about their childhood.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: I have tender feelings for Nixon, because everybody has warm feelings about their childhood. Actually, I didn't like the Watergate trials 'cause they interrupted The Munsters... Nixon was the last liberal president. He supported women's rights, the environment, ending the draft, youth involvement, and now he's the boogeyman? Kerry couldn't even run on that today.
