Lisa Saunders writes: On the subject of Sam's quotes, I tended to think of them as "Sam-erisms." For example, things were never expensive, they were “cher.” When you picked up the phone and he was on the line, he would say, "Well, hello and good day," or “It is I, Samuel." When we were planning an evening out for my ten-year-old daughter, he said, "And where would Madame like to dine?”
