View Quote [to Jimmy over his anger at his "He's engaged!" tagline during the Hollywood Television Showcase performance] I have wasted thousands and thousands of kisses on you - kisses that I thought were special because of your lips and your smile and all your color and life. I used to think that was the real you, when you smiled. But now I know you don't mean any of it. You just save it for all your songs. Shame on me for kissing you with my eyes closed so tight.
