(In a post-game cloakroom...)

"We did it!"

"We showed 'em!"

"Nobody pushes us around!!"

"Kill the Bill! Kill the Bill! Kill -- "

"Hey, guys, I just -- "

" -- the Bill!! Kill the Bill!!"

"Hey, listen up, guys! I just want to tell you how -- "

"Stop It Now!! Stop It Now!! Stop It -- "

"Now! Got it. 'Stop it Now.' Now listen up -- I just want to tell you, before we go our separate ways tonight, how proud how I am of every last one of you! What you did tonight, and in the weeks and weeks and months and months that led up to tonight -- that's something that nobody'll ever be able to take away from us."

"Kill the Bill! Kill the Bill!"

"Now, the numbers -- "

"Booooo!!! Booooo!!"

"The numbers on that scoreboard out there may say one thing. But you and I know who was victorious tonight. And that -- "

"G-O-P!! G-O-P!!"

"That's right! We're the winners tonight! They may have gotten a few more votes than we did with their arm twisting and their sleazy backroom socialist-utopian deals, but we won where it counted: with the American people!"

"Yay!!"

"The real American people! The ones who don't want government czars and IRS agents sticking their noses into our business!"

"No! No! No!"

"The ones who don't want Washington forcing them to insure their families!"

"No Czars! Kill the IRS!! No Czars! Kill the IRS!!"

"Well, we gave all those Americans a real victory tonight! And you know what? We're gonna give 'em an even bigger victory when this thing goes over to the Senate, because Mitch McConnell and his boys know just what to do over there!"

"Kill the Bill!! Kill the Bill!!"

"Now -- I know you won't believe this -- but I've heard some people say, 'All y'all fought the good fight -- but it's time to move on.'"

"No!!! No!!!"

"I told you you wouldn't believe it, didn't I? They're telling us -- we've been at this for more than a year now, you understand, nonstop for more than a year -- they're telling us maybe it's time to 'move on'! Like this Republican Party -- "

"No!!! No!!!"

"Like your Republican Party ever 'moves on!'"

"No!!!"

"Instead of fighting on!"

"Yay!!!"

"Instead of battling on!!"

"Yay!!!"

"Until we win!!!"

"Yay!!!"

"Until we win!!!!"

"Repeal It!!! Repeal It!!!"

"I can't hear you!!"

"REPEAL IT!!! REPEAL IT!!!"

"So everyone can hear you!!"

"REPEAL IT!!! REPEAL IT!!!"

"In Harry Reid's office!!"

"KILL THE BILL!!! REPEAL IT!!!"

"And all the way up to the White House!!!"

"KILL THE BILL!!! REPEAL IT!!!"

"Let 'em really hear you!!"

"KILL THE BILL!!! KILL THE BILL!!! KILL IT!!! KILL IT!!!"

"And now for our closing prayer..."
