Separated At Birth?

Outgoing Vice President showed up at today's ceremony in a wheelchair, which I believe was the perfect symbol for the administration. No word if Cheney was wheeling around saying, "No securities, no stocks, no bonds...You're worth more dead than alive" to guests at the inauguration.

I believe George Bailey's line is:

"You sit around here and you spin your little webs and you think the whole world revolves around you and your money. Well, it doesn’t, Mr. Potter. In the whole vast configuration of things, I’d say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider."
