Jimmy Rabbitte, Sr. (played by Colm Meaney): [defensively] “Elvis is God.”

Jimmy Jr. : “I never pictured God with a fat gut and corset singing ‘My Way’ at Caesar's Palace.”—The Commitments (1991), screenplay by Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais, and Roddy Doyle, based on the novel by Roddy Doyle, directed by Alan Parker
