[Deeds' rescue is warped and seen on the news as a twisted perversion]
He risked his life to save that woman and her pets! He was heroic!
[shrugs] Heroic is good, but depravity and scandals sell better.
[Deeds' poem is printed on greeting cards all over the state]
"Hard to breathe / Feels like floating..."
"So full of love my heart's exploding..."
[stroking a beautiful woman] "Mouth is dry / Hands are shaking..."
[seated next to Kitty on a bench] "My heart is yours for the taking..."
Nazo, the Italian Delivery Man:
[stroking a cat] "Acting weird / Not myself..."
"Dancing around like the Keebler elf..."
"Finally time / for this poor schlubb / To know how it feels to fall in lub."
[at a swanky dinner]
Oh, I get it... You all invited me here so you could look down on me. Well, let me tell you that here you may all laugh at me, but down in Mandrake Falls we would laugh at you all.
At the lake, when you saved my life... which I never thanked you for...
...you said that you didn't know who I was, and it made me realize... I don't know who I am. So I started working on it, and here's what I've got so far: My name is Babe Bennett. I grew up in Sayasset, Long Island. I have brown eyes and I don't know what my natural hair colour is anymore. When I was in fifth grade, I got a crush on Walter Kronkite, and... and I really did have that Holly Hobby notebook I was telling you about. I love Bruce Springsteen, Allman Roka and Abbott and Costello movies. I don't like liquorice, or my ankles. Most importantly, I know that I messed up real bad, and I'd be willing to spend the rest of my life begging you to give me another chance, because I am so deeply in love with you, and I know that it's definitely that forever kind of love that...
You're crazy. [Babe trails off into silence]
You have beautiful ankles.
