  1. Sadly, Rose wasn't listening but was thinking about coping an unwanted feel on the new girl intern…

  2. We make it up, if we feel the force.

  3. Invictus by WE Henley 1875

    Out of the night that covers me
    Black as the pit from pole to pole
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.
    In the fell clutch of circumstance,
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance,
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.
    Beyond this place of wrath and tears,
    Looms but the Horror of the shade.
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
    It matters not how strait the gate
    How charged with punishments the scroll
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

  4. Invictus is one of my all time favorites, and love it even better with James Spader's delivery

  5. I bet both these guys have been reciting this poem a lot lately.

  6. Two sexual harassers on a table, chatting together. Wow.

  7. Pretty amazing. I love this man. Yeah-Papa-Mentor-Teacher. I knew him since Electric Company

  8. Kind of a dick the way he threw that paper at him saying here are the words.

  9. here's another magical moment: both men will be remembered for abusing women

  10. I am the master of my fate … I am the captain of my soul 👌🏼
