"It's one thing to make an entrance, it's another thing entirely to get out alive. So for the next hour we'll be checking all the exits, finding our way outta here…and this show might run a little long this week, but that's OK. What are they gonna do, fire me?"

    “Great loose sounding record. Really sounds like he's in it. You know what drives me crazy? I see all these pictures of rock bands in the studio, and they're very careful to make sure you can see the bottle of whiskey they have with them. They want you to know they're on the edge. You listen to their records, they don't sound like that. What's up with that? This guy, Peppermint Harris, probably just had a couple nips before he went into the studio and he sounds loose as a goose.”

“And it has been good to know you this year and here we are at the end of another season. May you have warm words on a cool evening, a full moon of a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door. I'm going to head on down to Elmo's Lounge. We're having our wrap party there. Sampson's Diner is catering. If you happen to be driving by and the light is still on, come in and have a drink. It'd be good to see ya. In the mean time, see ya later, so long, and don't ever forget, every goodbye is the birth of a memory. Splogham”
