Please note that this is a DONUT reference.  JFK screwed up big time in his
speech, because berliner is German for donut, so when he thought that he was
saying "I am a citizen of Berlin." He was really saying "I am a jelly donut." 
I thought this was one of the best puns in the show so far.

We look before and after,                  Only in silence, the word;
We pine for what is not.                   Only in darkness, light;
Our sincerest laughter                     Only in dying, life --
With some pain is fraught.                 Bright the hawk's flight
-- Horace Rumpole (no doubt                  on the empty sky.
   quoting someone else...)                -- Ursula K. LeGuin
