The Day Roger Ebert Realized He Was a Pulitzer Prize Winner Sitting Next to a Knucklehead

"Um, when you say Camilla Belle is 'a thousand times more beautiful than Lindsay Lohan,' is that just a shade of hyperbole there? I mean, couldn't you say she's 'a little more beautiful' or something? Lindsay Lohan's pretty good-looking."

-- Roger Ebert to Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper, 5/14/06

(Moments later, Ebert praised Lohan's performance in Prairie Home Companion and implied that Just My Luck was beneath her talents. Roeper exclaimed of JML, "This movie just sucks!... This is a real piece of junk!" Ebert sighed and said, "Uh, I think your opinion has been made very clear.")
