Let's just say I start talking to Charley. Oh, Charley, what do you think about this talk? What do you think about what we are saying here? You know. And you all start looking at me a little weird, you know? (Laughter). Well, you know, the problem is, the problem is Charley, you're in the illusion that you exist when you really don't. See, that's, that's basically your problem. (laughter)
