I get scared in Sweden 13.08.2009

Lou Reed, Blue in The Face

I get scared like in Sweden.
It’s kinda empty, they are all drunk, everything works. If you stop at a stoplight and don’t turn your engine off, people come over to talk to you about it.
You go to the medicine cabinet and open it up, and there’ll be a little poster saying “In case of suicide call…”
You turn on the TV there’s an ear operation.
These things scare me. New York, no.

strangely, one of my favourite bits of movie dialogue (monologue?) ever. a colleague and I used to quote this all the time...

Heh, I have to say I think it's one of the highlights of the movie (:
