Me instead of Jack Nicholson? I love it. Oh yeah, that's great. He made my sets look so small. To Tim, obviously. To Jon and Peter, for their incredibly competent and wonderful spirit, for the producing of it. And to the Bat Gang. You know, the A-one team I work with. But this is mine, anyway [holding up the Oscar]. Peter's over there [pointing back in the audience]. Peter Young.
I came up here with you.
[Looking behind.] Oh, you're there.
