"Look at that technique! Rusty Sienna is the greatest painter in the world today!" "Then what's he doing hosting a cheesy TV show? Why isn't he in a museum or something?" "Look, Teddy, don't ask me to explain the absurdities of the art world!" "All I know is: When Rusty paints a lake, it looks like a lake! When he paints a tree, it looks like a tree! When he paints an Alp, it looks like an Alp!" "'An Alp'?" "You can tell it's an Alp because of the shepherd girl in the corner."
