It is true that the gameplay for ‘Orcs&Elves’ was designed around the limitations of mobile phones, and that if we were starting completely from scratch for the DS, we would probably do things a bit differently, but the bottom line is that when we sit a random DS player down with the game, they have a lot of fun.

I’m a registered independent. I don’t really believe in political parties. Bottom line: Mitt Romney‘s tax policy helps me. But I can’t stomach seeing somebody go hungry or somebody not being able to get an education because I want more. So, I’m supporting Barack Obama.
The bottom line is fans just want to hear a good song. Some people will look underneath to see who wrote it, but they just want to hear a good song. And if they don’t hear it, they’re not going to buy it just because you wrote it.
It’d be nice if Asian actors could be perceived as profitable, which is the bottom line. We’re perceived as not mattering much fiscally.

Stuart Pearce

If you look at the statistics, I genuinely understand why when we go to a production company or a broadcaster, and they say our show is niche and it’s not going to reach a wide enough audience. The bottom line is the majority TV audience is aged 40 to 65.
Joivan Wade
I don’t think politicians should be allowed into power who are not familiar with their bodies, because that’s where our bottom line is. And I know that they would make totally different decisions if they felt responsible simply for their own bodies.
The bottom line: if you want a happier family, create, refine and retell the story of your family’s positive moments and your ability to bounce back from the difficult ones. That act alone may increase the odds that your family will thrive for many generations to come.

Mitt Romney’s only bottom line is the one at the end of his own bank statement. The problem is that he confuses his own narrow, self-interest – and that of people like him – with the national interest. He thinks as long as we do right by the Mitt Romneys of the world, America will be just fine.
The bottom line is that the CIA knew before the war, during and war, and after the war where most of these chemicals were and most of these biological agents.
Christopher Shays
You look at Michael McDonald and people like that; I think they just tried to write music that was true to themselves. That’s our bottom line. Whatever people view us as, I think as long as we try to create good music that will win out in the end.
Dave Haywood
As a former prosecutor, I never presented a case in front of the grand jury that didn’t result in an indictment. Bottom line: If a prosecutor wants to indict a case, the case gets indicted.
Sunny Hostin
Bottom line: college basketball is broken.
Dick Vitale
The bottom line is that I’m not putting my life at risk in my quest for perfection. However, I ‘m not endorsing cosmetic surgeries. At the same time I don’t condemn them either.

I’m not gonna talk-trash and that’s the bottom line.

Obviously, there’s always a battle over philosophical leanings and persuasions, but the bottom line here is that Americans need to understand that this is an ideology in jihadist terrorism that is dangerous beyond words, and we need the moderate Muslim voices to be heard here if this is to be diminished in Islam itself.
So I come before you with a budget that is honest in its discussion of our challenges, creative in its possible solutions, compassionate in its commitment to our most vulnerable, and balanced on the bottom line.
