Ben: I knew I wasn't the only one to check that!

[EFH]: i am immediately implementing every one of these suggestions in accordance with the prophecy

By the way, Paul: watch out for that woman in the green coat at the restaurant bar this evening. Don't stop to talk - just keep on walking. Trust me.
