Opening credits over the following:
Do you know what this is all about? Do you.know why we're here? To be out.This is out.Out is one of the single most enjoyable experiences of life.People--you know how many people come home at night--"We should go out?" This is what they're talking about.This whole thing--we're all out, no one is home.
Not one person here is home.We're all out.There are people trying to find us.They don't know where we are."Did you-I can't find them, where did he go? I don't know.He didn't tell me where he was going.He must have gone out." You want to go out.You get ready, you pick out the clothes, right? You take the shower, get all ready.Get the cash, get your friends, the car, the spot, the reservations, when you stand around, what do you do? You go, "We gotta be getting back." Once you're out, you want to get back.You want to go to sleep, you want to get up, you want to go out again tomorrow, right? Wherever you are in life, it's my feeling, you've gotta go.End opening credits.

See, now to me, that button" is in the worst possible spot.The secondbutton literafly makes or breaks the shirt.Look at it, it's too high, it's in no-man's-land.You look like you live with your mother.
Are you through?
You do, of course, try on when you buy.
Yes, it was purple, I liked it.I don't recall considering the button.
