        It'll come to me eventually. I think it was the West Wing. Yes, now I remember, an aging SCOTUS justice said it after a brush with death.

          Percy Percy, to lord Black Adder as they contemplate the wreckage of yet another 'Cunning Plan' -

           "for God's sake, let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories ...... "

           My all time favorite Brit-com.

           Thanks for this diary, Mr. Fifty-Twelve ~ very fascinating discovery. And thanks to cartoon peril for the perfect Shakespeare quote for the diary ! I t gave me two shivers to read it in this context.

           "And write sorrow upon the earth" ooh. In my little town Library we have a yearly "Shakespeare Open Mike Night " where anyone may come and declaim their favourite sonnet or soliloquy. This would make an excellent choice !
