For being punched in the face by nostalgia.
this was such a great show
I totally heard Iggy Pop telling that story in my head.
Hank Friendly
is he trying to describe the 9 lives of garfield?
Yeah, that's about as coherent as anime gets, pretty much.
Helluva finale.
And they laughed and they laughed, because there wasn't enough oxygen in their spaceship.

Spike's story is a paraphrasing of a children's parable by Sano Yoko -- Here it is in its entirety: http://goo.gl/h9i4n

There was only one cat who never looked his way.
She was a beautiful white cat.
The cat would go up to her and say: "I've died a million times!"
"Oh." is all the white cat would say.
The cat was a little angry, for you know he liked himself better than anyone else.
The next day and the next, the cat would go up to the white cat and say:
"You'll probably only live once, you know."
Also, Jet's story (told to Spike just before this clip) is a paraphrasing of a Hemingway story, "The Snows of Kilimanjaro". Here are both stories together:


Just like Spike hates the cat story, Jet hated The Snows of Kilimanjaro. Thanks for the info Chocolate Jesus.
