The Real Article

by Del Griffith

You want to hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better – I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right: I talk too much; I also listen too much. I could be a cold hard cynic like you, but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. You think what you want about me, I'm not changing. I like me, my wife likes me, my customers like me, because I'm the real article: what you see is what you get.


Del Griffith was a fictional shower curtain ring salesman portrayed by the late John Candy in John Hughes’s Thanksgiving classic, Planes, Trains & Automobiles. His six sentences are taken from Hughes’s original screenplay.

LOL at Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

That quote was an interesting look into that characters mind because even though he said he didn't care what the other guy thought, he did.
