Quotes

Cory: Why Do I want to go to Finland? Honestly, the only memory that comes into mind is I was watching those stupid infomercials of the Girls Gone Wild, I know it sounds crazy. And they were interviewing this one girl and she was Finnish and it was like from there I was dead set on meeting a Finnish girl and going to Finland.
