They were left over from earlier in the night, when Rock had rallied the Oscar audience to buy Girl Scout cookies.

Michael Keaton is like, "LOL COOKIES!" but do you see Morgan Freeman in the background? Do you see his body language?

The desire in his eyes is so real.

As Michael Keaton politely debates how best to take a cookie, Morgan Freeman PUTS HIS FIST RIGHT INTO THE COOKIE SLEEVE. RIGHT INTO IT.

Does he wait to get offstage before he takes a bit of his cookie? No he does fucking not. He puts TWO COOKIES right in his mouth.

And then, he PEACES OUT.

As Chris Rock is STILL TALKING, Morgan Freeman walks offstage, because let's be real: He got his cookies.

As everyone else rushes onstage, our lone hero moves against the tide. He is unafraid to go against the crowd.

This is our last glimpse of Morgan Freeman, Cookie Hero.

Watch the whole quick but timeless moment here:

Morgan Freeman is a champion.

Morgan Freeman is an American hero.

Morgan Freeman is God.
