Conversation between Cortez Kennedy and Pro Line photographer:
Cortez Kennedy: Um, what are we doing out here by these rocks?
Pro Line photographer: We're shooting a football card, silly.
CZ: What does this have to do with football?
PLP: Well ... um ...
CZ: Is it because I'm strong, like a rock?
PLP: Um ...
CZ: Is it because our defensive line is like an avalanche headed toward the quarterback?
PLP: Um ...
CZ: Is it because football is such a grueling game, the best players, the ones who really succeed and prove themselves on the field and who strive to be the best, need to act like they've been carved from granite?
PLP: Um ... actually, it's because it takes a lot of stones to appear on such a stupid card.
CZ: Just take the friggin' picture.
