­See those two girls driving
  behind us­ Alex, they're follow-
  ing you.
­No, it's you they're follow-
  ing; you're the driver.
­But you've got the long hair,
  that's what they like.
­But you've got the famous face.
­But you've got the youth.
­But you have the money.
­But you have the beauty,
  and he let me end with the truth.
