I never signed anything. To leave. And he said wait a minute. Wait a minute. What did you just say? And I said. Yeah I said I never signed a contract. You know only Russell signed, and he said okay. Wait a minute. You'RE GONNA, have to start back at the beginning. Because I wasn't listening to anything you were saying. Sat my sound effect would be. This is really now. This is real. So.
