A man who needs no introduction!
Thank you very much, Sammy.
I couldn't wait.
That was a very nice introduction, and I am...
very thrilled and proud to be here.
It's been a wonderful ceremony here on behalf of our own Fred...
"The Dorf" Dorfman!
- Who is he? - Fred was darn near death recently.
He wasn't ashamed to admit to me that he had syphilis.
Thank God he stopped it in its tracks.
It takes a lot for a man...
to admit where he got it from and how he got it.
Look at him today. Fred, you look just wonderful.
The nose looks normal again. The face has come back into shape.
It's not drooling anymore.
And hats off to Marge, his wife, because that whole experience...
the three weeks that she stayed at Trembling Hills has paid off.
No more alcohol or sedatives in her life.
There are many other things I wanna tell you about Fred...
things that maybe many of you already know.
Sammy, you're not going to sing for us, are you?
Did you know that Fred spent much of his life...
honoring a profession that has gone largely unsung around here?
Some of them are here tonight. The profession is law enforcement.
I know Fred feels that too often our feelings are locked in...
and we feel restrained and perhaps even embarrassed...
to reach out and touch an officer of the law.
After all, they are people, aren't they?
Stand up. Pat them on the back. Reach out.
Shake hands with any one of these men in blue.
Hug a cop! Yeah, go ahead. I said it.
Yeah! That's a wonderful feeling!
I'm so proud tonight!
# Oh, say can you see #
# By the dawn's early light #
# What so proudly we hail #
# At the twilight's last gleaming ##
Hip, hip, hooray!
Hooray! Hooray!
Hooray! Hooray!
