"Operator! Give me the number for 911!" - Bart Simpson
'Old people, the disabled, the wheelchair-bound. I saw many of them in Hougang... I feel we should help them. This is not politics. Whether Eric Low wins or Low Thia Khiang wins, we are going to help the old people in Hougang. They deserve our help. They struggled with Mr Lee Kuan Yew, they struggled with me. Today, they're in their 70s. Without them, we won't have today's Singapore for the young, Internet-savvy Singaporeans. So we never forget them. We will help them regardless of the outcome.'
