Memory's like a card catalog but the cards are all mixed up.

He was just hell bent on getting that darn cat of his.

Things got ugly 'cause he wouldn't stand down when it didn't go his way.

Everybody's gotta contribute, so just be grateful.

He still knows how to give a decent haircut, or he'd be cadaver-chum right now.

So is this the fate that awaits us?

Well, I must admit I did have higher hopes for you than cleaning out the latrines.

You assigned us to that job.

Everyone's gotta start somewhere.
