USAToday:

Best lines for Frank:

“I’m honored to be the second Jew to have that song dedicated to me,” after hearing the Gririron chorus mock his record as chairman of the House Financial Services Committee with a satirical rendition of “We Three Kings.”
On his bipartisanship: “I am grateful to a major Republican candidate, (New Jersey Gov.-elect) Chris Christie, for making it safe for fat guys to be in politics.”
On the relationship between politicians and the press: “Almost without exception, when someone in my business says , ‘I was quoted out of context,’ he means, ‘I wish I hadn’t said that.’ “
