Thank you, everybody. Well, it is wonderful to be here. And there are just a couple of people I want to acknowledge. First of all, obviously Harvey and Georgina have just been great friends and have done so much for us — not just in this election, but in the previous one. A couple of other people who I want to mention — your Governor, Dan Malloy, is here, who’s doing outstanding work here in Connecticut.
I want to thank Anne Hathaway for taking the time to host us. She’s spectacular. And I did get a chance to see Batman. And she was the best thing in it. That’s just my personal opinion. Aaron Sorkin, who writes the way every Democrat in Washington wished they spoke. Aaron, thank you.
And Joanne Woodward — what a treat this is. Joanne and Paul were not only I think what was best about American film, but also just embodied the American spirit in so many ways. And their love story and the way they took so many people under their wing and helped so many people I think made them something more important than just folks in film. And for her to be here, what a great treat that is. So thank you so much for taking the time. Thank you.
