Man 1: You're not a cop or a firefighter. You weren't anywhere near the World Trade Center on 9-11. You haven't ever ever been to New York. So how on Earth can you call yourself a "hero"? Man 2: I am a hero. Man 1: Oh? How's that? Man 2: I got really freaked out. Woman: President Bush is here for you. He has a medal and cash for you.
