I Can’t Explain The Things I Say

Reading through the Gloria Mundi quotes as I hunt for a reference for my paper, I found the following:

Jessica (explaining why the introduction of “New Coke” ranks with the assassination of President Kennedy): “There are people who remember when they had their first glass of New Coke! Chris and I are just too young to remember.”
Dan: “I’m old enough to remember and I don’t. I just remember drinking some Coke and thinking, this tastes like ass. And a few months later real Coke was back.”
Jessica: “But if Kennedy had come back you’d feel the same way!”
Dan: “Zombie Kennedy?”
Jessica: “Yes! Ask not what your brains can do for you, but what your country can do for your brains.” 

I really can’t explain myself sometimes.
