George M. Cohan (People)

"My father thanks you. My mother thanks you. I thank you."

Cohan is considered the father of the musical comedy. Before the First World War, he was dubbed the "man who owns Broadway" because of his influence. He started his career as part of a vaudeville family act, closing the shows with "My father thanks you, my mother thanks you, my sister thanks you, and I thank you." Notwithstanding the fact that Logan was not around to witness Cohan in his prime (or at all given that the man died in 1942), the sight of ancient funeral guests causes him to parrot the Yankee Doodle Dandy.
