Oh, wait [pulls out a paper from his pocket], clock's ticking, got this going, all right.
First off, my thanks to the producers of U-571, Dino and Martha De Laurentiis, who make it exciting and an honor to be in this business. For the director Jonathan Mostow, thank you for your loyalty, talent and tenacity. To my whole crew, my deepest thanks. I'd like to mention a few of them that I've tortured the longest: Miguel Rivera, Keith Bilderbeck, Val Kuklowsky, Bruce Stubblefield, Robert Troy. To the mixers: Rick, Steve, Gregg and Ivan, you guys set the bar for the best mix I've ever been through. To my partner, chief antagonist, fiercest promoter, most loyal friend and my wife, Jill, I love you forever and after. Kids, don't stay up tonight. We'll be out real late.
