What He's Really Saying:
 "I got plenty mon-ay. I got plenty mon-ayyy. I just saw the dev model of the iPad, and I'm good. Trust. Besides, why would I want to run Disney when all of its best movies come from myteam? You can have your Lion Kings and Lilo & Stichs, Disney stockholders got nothing to worry about." [Ed.—Two years later, lo and behold, Disney buys Pixar for $7.4 billion and Jobs joins the Disney board.]
