83,784.  I just, I fell in love with these kids.  And I didn’t want to see them fall victim to the system.  So I made ’em a promise: I told them if they graduated from high school, I would pay for their college education.  I have made some empty promises in my life, but hands down that was the most generous.  (Office & Promise)  The Office US: Scott’s Tots s6e12, Michael
