Lee's gone home to Baltimore, leaving me sidekick-less.
I'll be glad to not spend so much time and ink writing down his witty remarks, but that's about the only benefit of him leaving.
Lee, my friend, danke. The Not-So-Grand Tour came alarmingly close to becoming genuinely grand. I look forward to traveling with you again--you can be my sidekick any time, or I'll be yours. Better yet: equals.
Remember: I'm Brad Pitt, you're George Clooney. We're famous.
