The practical plan for liking yourself better,
and I know, space ghost, there's no way you could like yourself
better than you do.
Not even for money.

"And that man was Walt Disney
And that's The rest of The story."
I said I'm rehabilitating zorak.
He's really quite evil.
Can you help me?
If he is an evil locust, then he's
only evil every 7 years, so just enjoy
in-between the 7 years.
But but I'm a mantis.

Well, that is a Great possibility.
How long have you hated men?
You're up in two minutes.
Time enough for a kiss And
Your mask makes it really very difficult
for people to divine your motivation.

Your motivation, for all we know,
may not be as open as your publicity
allows us to think.
Youget paid forthis?
Yes, uh, you know, have you ever seen an inkblot?
Once In dothan, Alabama.
I think they're fun to watch zorak:
