Hank: So I guess you're up here cause of the way I'm been acting since the explosion?

Bobby: Well, when that happened I was afraid you were dead and today you were talking to your friends about dying and I guess I freaked out.

Hank: Ah, son, you shouldn't be worrying about that stuff. Hopefully it's a long way off. A boy your age outta worry about getting dates and making a team and... y'know, getting dates. My dying should be at the bottom of the list. You need to relax and enjoy life.

Huh. Hey, did I ever tell you the story about the man and the tiger?

Bobby: Uhuh.

Hank: Well, uh, there was this man and he was being chased by a ferocious tiger. Uh, make that a lion; a Detroit Lion. two of 'em. The Lions were blitzing and Roger rolled out of the pocket, runnin' for his life. He headed for the sidelines but these two Lions were closing on on him. Then, out of the corner of his eye, he saw a strawberry... cup of Gatorade. Well, Roger took a drink of that Gatorade, but I tell you something, son: it was the sweetest sip of Gatorade Roger ever tasted.

Bobby: Ohhh. I get it. It's funny, Dad. You told it great.
