    57:33 No, “affectations” is the word of the day.

    1:06:57 Okay, we’re about ten minutes into a discussion of Martian Manhunter. I think that was barred as part of the Geneva Convention.

    1:07:03 Say “rock” again, I dare you, I double dare you Martian Manhunter, say what one more goshdarn time!
