"I'm a 60-year-old dude, just me and my wife, my kids have long been gone from the house... I have everything I could want, maybe when I was 30, would it be about the money? Yes. At 60, it's not about the money."

Okay, he was hitting you. Dude, the problem with the sword is that Drew could have killed someone? That's not a 2x4. This is a sword. You use the sword. It's like stepping into the ring with a gun. This is serious business.
Is that really what they wanted us to believe? Why do they have to sell this thing? I tell you, man, it's all about the merchandise and what they want to sell. Here's what the main reason is."
