Oprah: Where is the tissue?

Billy: I know—I've wrecked this room. This is supposed to be fun.

Oprah: Thanks, Mr. Funny Man.

Billy: I can't help it. It's my life right now. But Janice and I have nothing to complain about. Our kids are adults and fulfilled in what they're doing. They need us in a different way, and we need them in a different way. And I think it's all pretty great, because, as our folks used to say, it goes by so fast. So damn true. When it goes by and it's good, it's nice.

Oprah: It's what your mom asked: "Are you happy?"

Billy: Yes, and what else is there?
