Congratulations! You may or may not have survived the first presidential debate!
In case you were watching a repeat of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," we have you covered to make small talk around the water cooler Thursday morning.
Jim Lehrer rolled his eyes, President Obama gave an anniversary shout-out to Michelle, and Mitt Romney declared his love-hate for Big Bird and coal.
Were they really that zingy? Taken out of context we'll let you decide for yourself:
9. "If you're 54 or 55, you might want to listen." —President Obama
8. "No, I think I had five seconds before he interrupted me." —President Obama
7. "It wasn’t very detailed. This seems to be a trend." —President Obama about Mitt Romney's education plans
Watch former Vice President Al Gore and Current TV hosts Jennifer Granholm, Eliot Spitzer, Cenk Uygur and John Fugelsang share their thoughts on the outcome
of the first presidential debate:
6. "For 18 months, he's been running on this tax plan. And now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big bold idea is 'never mind.'" —President Obama
5. "Governor Romney is keeping all these 'plans to replace' secret. Is it because they're too good? Is it because somehow middle-class families are gonna benefit too much from them?" —President Obama
4. "Mr. President, you're entitled to your own house and your own airplane, but not your own facts." —Mitt Romney
3. "Your 5 seconds were up a loooooong time ago." —Jim Lehrer
2. "First of all, I think Governor Romney is going to have a busy first day, 'cause he's also going to repeal Obamacare — which will not be popular with Democrats as you're 'sitting down with them.'" —President Obama
1. Mitt Romney: Let's talk about the other big one&mdash
Jim Lehrer (interrupting): No, let's not.
