    wiki says: Separate Tables is a 1958 American drama film starring Rita Hayworth, Deborah Kerr, David Niven, Burt Lancaster, and Wendy Hiller, based on two one-act plays by Terence Rattigan that were collectively known by this name. Niven and Hiller won Academy Awards for their performances. The picture was directed by Delbert Mann and adapted for the screen by Rattigan, John Gay and an uncredited John Michael Hayes. Mary Grant and Edith Head designed the film's costumes.

    I don't know if I ever saw it, but I do remember that there was such a movie.

    I think Separate Tables was married to Patio Tables. Their children, Dinner and Multiplication, went on to great careers -- one was a chef and the other a zookeeper. We can't always live up to our name.

        Without context, I wonder whether he meant that even political influence could be bought or that you can't go into town and expect to be buying things with chickens.

          The argument was over someone questioning the concept of storing foods in plastic.

          Actually he was a Canadian Statesman and a "father of confederation," i.e. of unifying the British colonies in North America. He coined the phrase "Keep a lid on it."
