With all those nicknames to remember, I'm not surprised there isn't anymore room in his head for anything else.

Are these real? Does Dubya actually call Rove "Turd Blossom"? I thought that was just made up in Doonesbury.

the first one is pronounced "Fray-DOUGH" -- as in the hapless, mentally challenged brother in Godfathers 1 and 2 who Michael has killed at the end of 2 (in, perhaps, the most gorgeously timed sequence in film history).

the second one is just a frat boy nickname for Fred, pronounced "Fred-OH"

(sorry if you already knew that)

I have seen that scene many times and I still get chills down my spine...You can already tell by the first movie that Fredo is going to get offed at some point.
