TV Quote of the Week

There’s one thing I learned, Lieutenant, is that we all have a cross to bear. Including those of us who seem most fortunate. My problem is just the opposite. Born smart, as they say. A blessing, you’d think. I had no real childhood, I was an imitation adult, because that’s what was expected of me. Most people don’t like smart people. Most children despise smart children. So early on I had to hide my so-called gift and conceal it from my own brothers and sisters, my classmates, in the service. Painful. Lonely years.
--Theodore Bikel, Columbo, The Bye-Bye Sky High I.Q. Murder Case"
