They Said What?

We have a short list this week, but it includes some very entertaining comments. Stay tuned for next week’s feature on the Mystery Entrepreneurial Management professor. Please forward any good comments by email to quotes@mba2003.hbs.edu.

[on his summer internship experience in consulting] Carl Petty: “What is the deal with Power Point?”

After Samir Patel (NH) described the insurance industry in Strategy, Professor Michael Roberto asked “How is Progressive Insurance successful?”

Frank Schropfer (NH): “In the typical market, rather than looking at Samir’s unit, they look at individuals.”

Frank Schropfer (NH): “It’s very expensive to insure me. I just need to be insured.”

Marc Zelanko (NH): “Speculators speculate and it’s speculative.”

Harbus Summer Humor Editor Emeritus Sanjay Singhvi (OJ): “Just to be consistent with my other comments, I have to say the word ‘crap.’ It’s kind of establishing my brand.”

Andrew Eisner (OJ), comparing the Disney Time Warner battle over cable fees to an earlier Corporate Diplomacy case: “Disney, similar to North Korea, was much better coordinated.”

Ashley Cockrill (OJ), on who wears the pants and who makes decisions when it comes to purchasing from the King-Size Company men’s catalog: “My uncle’s a very large man, and when he needs a new pair of pants, he just tells my aunt to go get them for him.”

Channels to Market Professor David Bell: “I guess you can do that when you’re big and tall.”

Max Pedr¢ (OF), on the design team for the Spanish Zara clothing brand: “We are not like Gucci that has Tom Ford, the Harry Potter of fashion.”
