André the Giant: Gene, you see me now. And I'm going to the ring and believe me, it's not going to take me too long to come back right in front of the camera with the world championship belt around my waist.
Gene Okerlund: Bobby?
Bobby Heenan: Oh I can feel it. Oh the adrenaline's going! This man right here is going to make me famous. He's going to become the heavyweight champion of the world. And I'm going to go down in the history books as the manager of the world's heavyweight champion. I'm ready. Hogan you better be ready!
