I was reading "The Game" by Neil Strauss when I found this gem:
"Twyla was no prize. She was a tattooed thirty-four-year-old Hollywood rock-and-roller with weathered skin, a body as hard as her face, black hair in a bird's nest of dreadlocks, and a heart of gold. She reminded me of a Pontiac Fiero, an old sporty model liable to break down at any moment."
Since this book was released quite some time ago, in 2005, and someone in this Forum even mentioned it before (http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Archives/Archive-000003/HTML/20090907-6-057929.html), I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this quote, seeing as how we're always sharing Fiero references from TV and the movies.
Anyway, what is your favorite Fiero quote from a book, TV, or movie? Or is there already a thread about this? If there is, I'd be curious to read it.
It was too long ago, but I but there were lots of good lines in the How I Met Your Mother episode, "Arivaderci, Fiero".
After seeing your post, I went and watched that episode. I could never become hooked on that show; it just wasn't my kind of comedy or sitcom. I wondered what its writers were smoking when they wrote that a homeless guy crawled into the Fiero and puked in its back seat. Still, it was enjoyable to watch nonetheless.
I wonder, does Carrie Heffernan ever say anything about her red Formula in "The King of Queens"?
This thread seems to suggest that the episode in question is Season 8 Episode 3 titled "Consummate Professional" which seems to make sense from the bits I watched from the German translation.
