RAY: Well, he's getting a quantity discount.

TOM: You talk about quantity discounts. That's a quantity discount.

TOM: Wow, that's a good one. I mean there are millions of high school and grammar school students at this moment saying how come I didn't get that. Or they're saying those guys are jerks. And the winner, and one of the people who said we were jerks, is Dianne Weaver from Houston, Texas.
