...can you take me higher...where a blind man can see... can you take me...
Oh. Uh. Hey, Walt, How's, uh, how's it going?
Oh, just great, Paul. I mean, who wouldn't want to be on a line with a slumping sniper and another guy who wishes he was a slumping sniper? Just great.Â How are you, buddy?
Walt, buddy, you know that wasn't my call. I mean, I loved playing with you. It was just that, you know, maybe we're all better off if you and I take a bit of a break. I mean, it's not like a permanent thing, you know? I mean, we could be back together in just a couple months or weeks. Maybe even a couple days....
Come on, Walty, it doesn't have to be that way. It's just that this way we're not so...so... exclusive. This way we can both see what else is out there. It's a great way to test our relationship and see if we're really right for each other....
You wanna know what's out there? I can tell you what's out there; you get to be "out there" with a motivated Brad Boyes still! Who am I "out there" with? Lee "I scored 27 times last year" Stempniak! Twenty-seven times? Are you kidding me? I'd scored 27 times by the time I was 21 years old! Great. Just great, Paul.
You know, Paul, I've put everything into this relationship. Everything. The way it's going I'm not exactly headed to the Hall of Fame, am I? I'm not exactly on the "fast track" to a Stanley Cup, am I Paul?
Yeah, exactly. All I have left, Paul, is us. Us. Can't you see what you mean to me?
...it's getting hotter, our burning love, and I just can't get enough, just can't get enough.... just can't get enou...
Â Hello, Bradley.
Oh, hey Walt. Pauly.
So, Walt... Stempniak tonight, eh?
(shaking head, grimacing)
Yeah, Bradley. Stempniak. One Goal Stempniak. You? Oh, wait, I think I have an idea... hmmm... let me think.
You two... of all the people.... I just... I never.... You two.... WHY?Â WHY? WHY? (turns and storms towards the exit).
...walkin' on sunshine, yeah yeah...and it's startin' to feel good!.... Hey, Walt! How's it...
Not now! Not NOW!
(wheeling) YOU! You two! Look what you've done! That is a great man. And look what you've done! You should be ashamed!
Walt! Walt! Wait! We can fix this....
I told you this was going to be weird. I told you that he was going to....
Not now, Brad. Not now. Let's just get dressed. McClement has apparently been here for hours.
Paul! Brad! Check it out, I had these sweet "BK Men" shirts made! Get it? Boyes-Kariya-McClement? BKM? BK Men? Like Burger King Men, but with our names and everything? Get it? The King? King Men? Guys?
