  • And dig into the sauce, and it drips all over the place.

  • It's very good, I mean, Henry probably ate more of it.

  • It's all about Henry, all about Henry and his abs.

  • like Henry Golding, that is what my team has told me.

  • My manager has told me that, who is also my mom.

  • Anyway, um... (laughing)
