    You can tell Tony has a crazy inner dialogue going on in his head at all times. He's already imagined answering all these questions a million different ways !! I'm genuinely curious as to what he's gonna say if he loses !! I don't know if he goes "there" when he's playing devil's advocate with himself ?
