Buddy Wittenborn: You know what you've got? You have got a talent for love. You're like a love genius. And there are too many statues of generals and politicians, and there are not enough statues of someone like you.

And you, you, you, are the greatest. You're the greatest. You're the greatest. So here's to love, an-and, here's to you.
