Paul wanted everybody to know that after coming here for seven other occasions like this...
For two minutes let me say something about you first.
Wait a minute, darling.
Just a moment. I would like to congratulate Paul. I'm sure he's listening; he is not here tonight. And this award, Paul, is long overdue. Robert Wise, a great friend of Mr. Newman's, is accepting for him. And Mr. Wise is the winner of two Oscars himself: "The Sound of Music," "West Side Story." Yes. Now, now you get on. That's right.
Thank you, my dear.
