Why do you think you will win today?
Um, I didn't say I would win the game. I--y'know... First of all, I know that Joely will win the game, because, uh, Mario is no threat, intellectually, and I'm limited. So you have no threat, and limited, versus a very smart, uh, woman. So there's no real contest here. But it should be filled with mirth. And laughter and joy.

"Jiminy Glick and Ed Grimley are among his many memorable characters. He's now starring on Broadway in his own show, Fame Becomes Me. Please welcome..."
