    Is Rubenstein a human being or is he one of those half-human, half-ghoul man servents from vampire movies? Maybe he's related to the nanny from The Omen.

    Good medical authority, the sophomore sitting two rows back. Is it strange that this is the only quote, other than Rubenstein's, in the whole story?

    You know who originally played Sally Bowles. Just sayin.

    Maybe Haley is going to be the new voice of 'New York New York' when the Yankees lose.

    Yeah, but Spnited, none of that tells me whether he's a ghoul or not. I think all of that tips the balance decidedly towards ghoul.
