From the Godfather -

No, no, no! No more! Not this time, consiglieri. No more essays, no more interviews, no more Adcom tricks. You give 'em one message: I want an admit. If not, it's all-out war: we go to the mattresses.

My war cry has been for some time:

"When going after Moby Dick, bring the tartar sauce"

I love that
