A reporter asks the mayor if it looks like rain. Perhaps eluding to his Teflon political career, the mayor answers, "It never comes down on Willie Brown."

when I first heard this years ago, I was in another room while my daughter was watching this movie and in passing I heard the quote and thought immediately - willie brown, didn't he get a call the night before 911 from Condoliza saying not to fly on 911?>
Brown's warning: In the five years since 9/11, the question of how then-San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown got a warning about flying that day continues to live on in the blogosphere -- and conspiracy theories abound.
"The latest version is that Condoleezza Rice alerted me personally,'' Brown said this week. "It's all part of the ongoing myth."
The "myth" has its origins in the night before the attacks, when Brown called "my security people at the airport'' to check on his flight to New York the next morning.
What the mayor got from his source was a warning that Americans should be concerned about traveling.
