It's the man on the left, officer!

The one on the left, ma'am? You're sure about that?

And again, you can definitely identify the man on the left as the one you saw fleeing the scene.

And again, it's the man on the left you saw.

I'm sorry, ma'am, but there's nothing we can do. The men you identified? They can't even get arrested in this town.

It's department policy, ma'am. I'd like to help, but my hands are tied.

Am I not cool enough to get this?

Do I need more, or less college?

The joke is/was/was supposed to be that in these duos, one guy went on to fame and glory and the other guy, not so much. Wham!, DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, Bill and Ted.

The guys on the left? They are the not so much.

Note to self: Never be part of a duo.

I almost humiliated myself and said that at least I remember the Lost Boys actor, but then I couldn't remember his name (I had to wiki it—Alex Winter), and that movie was released before the Excellent Adventure (and I would have to be tortured to admit openly that I love that movie).

To add insult to injury, for the last eighteen years I believed Alex Winter and William Zabka were the same person. I sure swept the leg on that one.

Er, I notice on the cd over on the right, that you're on the left and I'm on the right, and we have the same situation on the Record of the Same Name photo, yet neither of us has gone on to fame and fortune. ¡Qué lástima!

Technically, padre, you went on to another band, while I tried the solo route, so I got the "man on the left" treatment.
