[Montfort, who had been whisked away from the deranged man when he stormed the stage, was returned to centre stage, looking slightly shell-shocked. The microphone was placed back in his hands. The audience applauded and cheered louder and louder, prompting Montfort to smile]
"And without further ado, I'm pleased to introduce my successor--- no, I'm joking! I would, of course, like to apologise for the language there, although if you sat through the Vayinaodic entry, it's basically a spoken word version of that."
"I hope that man gets the help he needs. We all make mistakes in our lives and in our work. Letting Mr Oliver host EuroVoice was one of mine, and one I regret to this day.

"The best that we can do---"
[Montfort is momentarily distracted by the sight and sound of John Oliver being beaten up by EuroVoice security]
"The best we can do is refuse to let those who hate the music get in the way of the music. So let's get ready for a new era of EuroVoice, starting in Icholasen with EV 39, and let's celebrate Sham Rock and their big victory tonight! Sham Rock, come on down!"
