Ladies and gentlemen of the Academy, this is really an honor; and Buzzy [Robert Knudson] was right, your hands do get wet. I'd certainly like to thank George and Gary for all they've done for us. They gave us an opportunity. I must also thank Bob Litt, a gentleman who helped us very much; Steve Katz, another one; all the wonderful mixers who aided us in the early stages of our work; and all of you. Thank you very much.

I'm deeply grateful. Thank you.
