What’s a sweetheart deal? Ask someone from the Palace, we’re just quoting them.
More of this week’s best soundbites coming right up!
1. "There can be no marriage where the married couple has been deprived of the power, right, and duty to procreate." -Francisco "Kit" Tatad, on why same-sex marriage should be banned.

Incredible." -Cynthia Patag’s Facebook post that landed her in hot water.
