Well, I couldn't before.

[edit] "Chimpan A to Chimpan Z"

Troy:
I hate every ape I see
From chimpan-a to chimpan-z,
No, you'll never make a monkey out of me.
Oh, my God, I was wrong,
It was Earth all along.
You finally made a monkey...
Ape:
Yes we finally made a monkey...
Troy and Apes:
Yes, you finally made a monkey out of me!
Troy:
I love you, Dr. Zaius!
(applause)
Thank you! It's great to be back! I just want to say I wouldn't be here without the support of a very special lady, my always outrageous fiancée, Selma! Take a bow, sugarbeet!
Selma:
Oh.
Homer:
Down in front!
