I hate Oz, because when I'm pissed, he's always sober.

I'll go with James Woods, though I'm a heck of a lot taller than he is.

Actually, I always looked a bit like Shaggy from the old Scooby cartoons. This is not a good thing.

Ya buncha bastards. If the Troopers doesn't win, I'm taking my mouth and going home.
