The Best Notable Quotables of 1988:

Ted Turner's Portrait of the Soviet Union

"The Soviet Union, draped in history, born in a bloody revolution, bound together by a dream that is still being dreamt. The dream of a socialist nation marching toward the world's first communist state."

"Once the Kremlin was the home of czars. Today it belongs to the people."

"Atheist though the state may be, freedom to worship as you believe is enshrined in the Soviet Constitution." 
-- Statements by narrator Roy Scheider during three night WTBS cable "Superstation" series aired in March.


Grenada Liberation

"Prosperity Eludes Grenada 5 Years After Invasion" 
-- Washington Post, October 25

"Grenada invasion halted communism in its tracks" 
-- Washington Times, same day



"Oh, Mr. Gorbachev!

You are so different from all the other boys!

I think I'm falling in love with you!

Clap your hands, clap your hands, Gorbachev!

Clap, clap, clap, clap your hands!" 
-- a Hungarian pop singer featured during story by NBC reporter John Cochran, May 26.

"It is a totally different world. Moscow is right now an open city. It is just as open as Washington, D.C." 
-- William Lord, former Executive Producer of ABC's World News Tonight, quoted in the Washington Post by Tom Shales, in early June.
