We are here tonight to honor
show business legendWilliam Shatner.
[cheers and applause] As you all know,
William Shatneris an author too.
I've read your writing.
It sucks out loud.
Put it this way.
Your next project should bea suicide note.
I'm kidding,William Shatner.
Don't kill yourself.
Then Uhura over there
won't have anyone's houseto clean.
I kid.I love you, Nichelle.
Or as they called youon the Enterprise--
William Shatner isnot only a TV star
and a "writer."
As a singer,he is beyond compare.
When Elton John heardWilliam Shatner sing Rocket Man,
he spit George Takei's dickout of his mouth.
