and I don't think there is

a single solitary soul

and on about this...

...fella, but I won't.

We're gonna raise a glass

for you tonight, Mr. Griggs,

'cause we all know how much

Hope they serve up there

Well hot dog!

Let's honor the man!

What are we doin' sitting here?

Meet me over at the dessert

tray in two minutes.

We'll see who can scarf back

three chocolate chip cookies


My money's on me, Short Stack.

All right?

Oh, and then- and then-
