[1] "This is Jack Killian, "The Nighthawk" on KJCM, 98.3 and Good night America… wherever you are." 

Jack Killian's sign-off at the end of each episode of the television show Midnight Caller (1988-91) starring Gary Cole as an ex-cop who hosts a late night Radio Show set in San Francisco.


[2] "The only thing you believe in is me. What are you if you don't have me? I'm not afraid, see? I come in every night, make my case, make my point, say what I believe in! I tell you what you are. I have to.  I have no choice. You frighten me. I come here every night, tear into you, I abuse you, I insult you, and you just keep  coming back for more. What's wrong with you?  Why do you keep calling? I don't wanna hear it anymore.  Stop talking! Go away! You're a bunch of yellow-bellied, spineless, bigoted, quivering, drunken, insomniatic, paranoid, disgusting, perverted, voyeuristic, little obscene phone callers."

Excerpt from the final soliloquy of the Dallas, Texas based late night Radio Host Barry Champlain in Talk Radio (1988) directed by Oliver Stone.
