The question was discussed on Monk; you know:
_ Is "assistant" the same as "secretary"? _
|What are those?
|- Those are for you.
|- Get out! Flowers? "Happy Secretaries' Day. - Mr. M."
|- You're welcome!
|- Mr. Monk, I'm not your secretary. I'm your assistant.
|- Yeah, secretary. It's the same thing.
|- No. No. It's not the same thing.
| Do you think a secretary has to do what I do?
| It's a huge responsibility.
|- What about the Secretary of State? That's a very important job. Or
| Secretariat, Triple Crown winner. Love to see an assistant do that.
|- You don't respect me at all, do you? I mean, really, really respect
|- Of course I do.
