Mark: I'm so glad we're out here fishing on this peaceful and serene water this morning.

Julio: Me too, Mark. But only after we fulfilled our duties as football players, and as student-athletes, and as people, first. Real, character people.

Mark: Which is why we've come on this fishing trip. Not for ourselves, though I'm sure I'm going to enjoy it. Won't you, Julio?

Julio: Oh, of course. Hey, look!

They both land fifty pound tuna simultaneously.

Mark and Julio: WOW!!!

Curtis Anderson: Thank you, boys, for helping an old, crippled man taste the sweet flavor of the outdoors again. It's like I'm fully alive again. Thank you, boys, for making that possible.

BOOM! A sunburst appears, and a hole in the clouds opens to show NICK SABAN addressing them from the heavens.

Nick Saban: Don't you mean men, Curtis?

Nick Saban: [/gives the thumbs up. Bear Bryant appears in the background with a sign and arrow pointing to Saban. It reads: UNSTOPPABLE BADASS. Saban puts arm around Bear Bryant, disappears.]
