Oh captain, my fallen hero!!

You left me begging for more, more of my childhood hero.

You didn't even stop to think, just once, "What will my wife do when I'm gone?"

"Maybe he quit while he was ahead. He could not keep his wonderful smile in place."

"The drugs got the best of him... What a joke: Substance killing a man of great substance."

Captain, don't leave us! We can't brave these Jumanji jungles alone!

The circus is a terrifying Cirque du Freak when you aren't beating those clowns with your wits!

Even though you're all grown, you still had a Peter Pan heart.

I miss you, Captain. Rest your dear heart.
