Scarlet Street : What do you mean there's no Santa Claus?

What do you mean there's no Santa Claus?

Wow. Watching EGR in this role was like that day so many years ago that I found out that there's no Santa Claus. Talk about shattered illusions- the quintessential tough guy, Edward G.

At least I can take comfort in the knowledge that the Easter bunny will be here in a few months.

He was broken long before he met Kitty, though. I'd almost say he's better off wandering around nuts than living with Adele.
