It's difficult to understand what the little guy is saying, but if we had to guess, we'd surmise he's quoting Abraham Lincoln's first inaugural address:
"We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
It's either that or something about bacon.
