WAITHE: "Wow, wow, wow. Got to thank God, got to thank God, oh my gosh. Oh, Jesus, let me reclaim my time, give me a second. I got to thank God or else I wouldn't be standing here, I want to thank my mother for inspiring the story and allowing me to share it with the world. I love you mom. Thank you Aziz for pushing me to co-write, this, thank you and Allen for creating the show 'Master of None,' thank you Netflix and universe for creating a beautiful playground for us to play on and shine, Ted and Cindy, we love you, molenna are you magic. Ang labs, are you a legend, Kim, you are a force. Thank you for making this episode so special, to my girlfriend I love you more than life itself. Alana, Martine, my chosen family, I love you all and last but in the least my LGBTQIA family, I see each and every one of you. The things that make us different, those are our super powers. Every day when you walk out the door and put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren't in it and for everybody out there that showed so much love, thank you for embracing us, a little Indian boy from South Carolina and a queer black girl from the southsideof Chicago. We appreciate it more than you could ever know. Thank you academy for this. We love you all, God bless you all."
