"I sat down on one of the sofas, waiting for George. Door opened, and George walked in with Gary [Kurtz] behind him. So, naturally, what did I do? I'm raised in England. Soon as someone comes in through the door, I stand up. George goes 'Hmm...', virtually turned to Gary, and said 'I think we've found him.'"
