"Governor Bredesen, this is Governor Perdue."
"Governor Perdue, this is Governor Bredesen."
"Gentlemen, I'm Referee Frodo."
"Governor Perdue, since you're the Visitor, you will get to call the coin flip. Gentlemen this side with the Peach Tree will be 'Heads' and the side with the Coonskin Cap will be 'Tails.' Governor Perdue, call 'Heads' or 'Tails' while the coin is in the air."
"Thank you Governor Perdue, and the coin has come up 'Heads.' Do you wish to go on offense in District Court or do you defer until the Appeals Court?"
"The Great State of Georgia will litigate."
"Thank you Governor Perdue. Governor Bredesen, you have the choice of defenses."
"The Great State of Tennessee opts for 'Regular and Customary Use'."
"Thank you Governor Bredesen, please stand here with your back to the Nickajack Reservoir. You, Governor Perdue, face him with your back to the Wall. Good luck gentlemen, now let's do it."
"Governor Perdue, Samwise here with WATR. How do you plan to open your attack against the faulty survey and to obtain clear title to the land bordered by the middle of the Tennessee River?"
"Samwise, we intend to flood the zone with signage, and to convince the defenders that the water truly belongs to Georgia. We will wear them down."
"Good luck to you Governor."
"Governor Bredesen, how do you intend to defend the charge of the Georgians that access to the water is theirs by virtue of the survey line originally granted by Congress?"
"Well Sam, we're not gonna let them 'water board' us. This has been Tennessee property for over two hundred years, and if it was truly theirs, why didn't they try to get it before?"
"And good luck to you Governor."
"Well Readers, there you see the layout for this 'Battle of the Titans'. You can hear the Tennessee Fans cheering 'We're Number one,' while the Georgia Fans respond with 'Bull----, Bull----'. The results at the end of the District Court will be followed by the Appeal, and if the combatants are still not separated, the Supreme Court will make sure that there is no tie. 'Kissing your sister' will not be the result of this contest here today."
