A splash of … [Split] Pain. [Banana] And a little bit of reality. [Split] I wouldn’t say that, I would say from the heart. [Banana] Oh yes. Heart.

Mister King of Hearts should have emotional intelligence. He should be smart. He should be handsome. He is in the open air. Damn, I want him to have a private plane if I ask. This is not a joke.

Although she says she doesn’t remember it now. The rest is history. My wife is so supportive of me that she is even here with me tonight. You might think my wife here would calm my nerves, but to be honest it makes me a little more nervous.

I think the things that pushed me were all voices from my past. How I would never get anywhere. Well I showed them.
