Tony Danza: Doorstop

(viewed 2839 times)

"You want to know what true happiness is? Knowing your place. Being given a job you know you can do, doing it as hard as you can, and knowing you're good at it."


"Really. When you're in that position, what you do becomes what you are. You could be a doorstop. But when someone asks you, 'Who the hell are you?' you can say, 'My name is Tony Danza and I'm a motherfricken' doorstop.' End of story. Not everybody can do that."

"Tony Danza? As in, 'Hold me closer, Tony Danza'?"

"Forget it. First name that came to my head."

"That worries me just as much as your philosophy."

"Well. Worry about Tony Danza if you want, but the philosophy is sound. If you know your own name and you know what you're good for, you are nine-tenths of the way to true happiness."

"What's the other tenth?"

"Maybe not being a doorstop."

Thanks for not throwing anything at my head at the twisted Sir Elton John reference. :)

This is too funny, for many reasons.

Adam seems to share my vision of my future -- shackled to a grubby desk in the rabbit warrens underneath some Hollywood studio or other, my bourbon in an IV dripstand and pre-smoked cigars in a scuba rebreather, writing dialog for sitcoms.

I should probably come up with an alternate plan.

I rather liked the reference (or at least the twist)

I guess I got away with it, then. :)

I wonder if Tony Danza will ever find this page...
