Enamored by Herman Cain’s farewell speech from the presidential campaign, Jon Stewart was keen to analyze it Monday night.

The Daily Show host particularly was enthralled by Cain’s bizarre ending to his speech, where the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO quoted the closing song from the first Pokémon movie.

“Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, it’s never easy when there is no much on the line,” Cain said to his supporters Saturday.

Stewart thought he should have actually quoted another line from the movie by the Pokémon Slowking, saying “I could use some pants.”

“To be fair to Herman Cain, we can’t always be as wise as Slowking, when he’s wearing the Shellder of Knowledge,” he said. “Look it up bitches, the Shellder of Knowledge.”

“I’m going to miss him so much.”
