In the 1/12 episode Pete quotes from the Irish poet William Butler Yeats in
a toast to Catherine.  But he omits two lines from the poem, and in so doing
substantially alters the meaning of the excerpt.  Here's the entire poem:

	A DRINKING SONG
	
	Wine comes in at the mouth
	And love comes in at the eye;
	That's all we shall know for truth
	Before we grow old and die.
	I lift my glass to my mouth,
	I look at you, and I sigh.
