John Toll won this a number of years ago, said that the production designer on his movie, that 50 percent of it belonged to him. Well, 80 percent belongs to Jack Fisk and his production crew. And David Crank. And Dylan Tichenor. But it really, we all know it really, really belongs to Paul; that this is his imagination and his energy and his extraordinary vision, and it sort of enabled us to create the world of "There Will Be Blood." Thank you, Paul. But we're really all standing on the shoulders, we know this, of Daniel Day-Lewis – who isn't here right now, but... Thank you all so much. Thank you. And Helen, thank you so much.
