Tour guide: Welcome, everyone. I’m your dam tour guide, Arnie. I’m about to take you through at fully functional power plant. So please, no one wander off the dam tour, and feel free to take all the dam pictures you want. Now, are there any dam questions?
Clark: Where in the hell is the damn dam tour?
