On August 9, 2002 broadcast of CNN American Morning with Paula Zahn, Richard showed off his posh education by correcting the grammar of US website, Classmates.com, and recalling his own bright school days with this report on how a website that reunites old school mates is triggering marital breakups in Britain.
JACK CAFFERTY, CNN ANCHOR: In this country, it's called Classmates.com. In Britain, they have one of those Web sites that's designed to reunite you with your old classmates, old friends, a huge success over there. But it turns out many of these reunions are people getting in touch with their old flames, and it's wrecking some marriages.
Joining us now with more about that and some other things making news "Over There," my buddy and yours, Richard Quest.
Good morning, sir. How are you doing?
RICHARD QUEST, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Oh, this is a goody, Jack, Classmates.com, or as we call it over here, Friends Reunited. You see, once again, typically, you go for the slovenly way of speech. We prefer the correct form of grammar and dictum. FriendsReunited.com, this is what it is.
