Aron Ralston: You know, I've been thinking. Everything is... just comes together. It's me. I chose this. I chose all of this. This rock... this rock has been waiting for me my entire life.

I've been moving towards it my entire life. The minute I was born, every breath I've taken, every action has been leading me to this crack on the earth's surface.
Aron Ralston: [as Brian Stephenson] Good morning, everyone! It is 7 o'clock here in Canyonlands, USA! And this morning on the boulder, we have a very special special guest, self-proclaimed American superhero, Aron Ralston! Let's hear it for Aron! [nods to his imaginary audience] Aron Ralston: [as himself] Hey. Hi. Oh, gosh, it's... It's a real pleasure to be here. Thank you. Thank you! Heh. Eh-heh. Em... Hey, can I say hi to my mom and dad? [as Stephenson] Aron Ralston: Mom and Dad! Mustn't forget Mom and Dad. Right, Aron? [as himself] Aron Ralston: Yeah, that's right. Eh... Hey, Mom. I'm really sorry I didn't answer the phone the other night. If I had, I would have told you where I was going, and then... Well, I probably wouldn't be here right now. [as Stephenson] Aron Ralston: That's for sure! But like I always say... your supreme selfishness is our gain. Thank you, Aron. Anyone else you'd like to say hi to? [as himself] Aron Ralston: Ehm...

Aron asks... [as caller] Aron Ralston: Am I right in thinking that even if Brion from work notifies the police, they'll put a 24-hour hold on it before they file a Missing Persons report? Which means you won't become officially missing until midday Wednesday, at the earliest? [as himself] Aron Ralston: Yeah. You're right on the money there, Aron. [the audience laughs] Aron Ralston: Which means, I'll probably be dead by then. [the audience laughs again] Aron Ralston: [as Stephenson] Aron from Loser Canyon, Utah. How do you know so much? [as caller] Aron Ralston: Well, I'll tell you how I know so much. I volunteer for the rescue service. You see, I'm something of a... well, a big fucking hard hero. [the audience laughs] Aron Ralston: And I can do everything on my own, you see? [as Stephenson] Aron Ralston: I do see! Now... Is it true that despite, or maybe because you're a big fucking hard hero... you didn't tell anyone where you were going? [as himself] Aron Ralston: Yeah. That's absolutely correct. [as Stephenson] Aron Ralston: Anyone...? [as himself, shaking his head] Aron Ralston: Anyone. [as Stephenson] Aron Ralston: Oops... [the audience laughs] Aron R
