[4.0.1] Thrall's Speech to Garrosh, Eitrigg, and Vol'Jin (w/ Transcript)

With patch 4.0.1, we have a bit of an RP event in Thrall's Chamber now.  It appears to start fairly randomly.  This is in the current game content, but if you want to see it first yourself, don't continue reading and do not click on the link that follows.  After standing there for 20 minutes (I am the sexy Tauren in the picture), I broke down and found someone that had filmed the exchange and put it on YouTube


I was going to point you to a transcript, but I could not readily find one.  So, I'll make one for you.
Thrall: OK, let's do this.   So, um, Elementals are pissed and stuff, and I gotta go check it out; oh and there is other stuff to deal with.  Garrosh is in charge until I get back.
Garrosh: You can count on me, bro.
Thrall: Cool.
Vol'jin: Cool.
Eitrigg: Cool.
Garrosh: Cool.
 OK, maybe that's a paraphrase, here we go:
Thrall: Let us begin.
Garrosh: Are we not going to have more witnesses?
Thrall: I do not wish to make an event of this.  Such frivolities are expensive and merely serve our vanity.  But if you wish to have a celebration...
Garrosh: No Warchief, this is enough.
Thrall: You know that these are troubling times for the Horde.  Our supplies dwindle.  Our lands are barren.  These are tasks that must be addressed for the good of the Horde.
Vol'jjn: Da people be happy with our success in Northrend.
Garrosh: "Our" success?  Troll, you played no part in the Horde's victories in Northrend.  While I led our warriors against the Lich King, you merely took back a few scattered islands.
Vol'jjn: Watch yourself, young one. You don't-
Eitrigg: Garrosh!  Vol'Jin!  Hold your tongues.  There are larger issues at stake.
Vol'jin: Forgive my outburst, Warchief.  Please continue.
Thrall: Despite our success in Northrend, we face serious problems that cannot be solved simply by axe and sword.  Eathrquakes shake every region.  Elementals ravage the countryside.  I can hear our land Azeroth, cry out in pain.
Garrosh:  These are the reasons that you must leave.
Thrall: Yes, I leave for Nagrand to learn from the elements there.  They have suffered and seen many of these same symptoms.
Vol'jin: How long you gonna be gone?
Thrall: It may take time to learn what I must.  I trust I will not be gone too long, but it could be weeks - even months.
Thrall: In my absence, I am instructing you, Garrosh Hellscream, to lead the Horde.  You have the strength and courage that our people need to survive in these trying times.
Garrosh: I am honored, Warchief.  But I feel unprepared for the life of a ruler.
Thrall: You will not be alone.  You will have advisors: Cairne, Eitrigg, Vol'jin.  They will help guide you.
Thrall: And though I am leaving soon, I can also instruct you.
Vol'jin: A good first test may be dealin' with dese cultists.  Da people be scared.  Dey aren't sure what's goin' on.
Garrosh: But even we are not sure of all that is happening.  Should we capture these cultists and force their silence?  But that may anger the rest of the people...  Still, we cannot allow the cult to spread fear and lies...
Eitrigg: Now you are thinking like a ruler, Garrosh.  You must look at all sides of a problem.  Consult with your advisors and act with confidence.
Thrall: They will help you Garrosh.  And I will help you.  I will find the answers that we need to assuage the fears of the people and soothe the elements.
Garrosh:  I will not fail you, Warchief.  I will lead as well as I can, and I will consult with the advisors you suggest.  I know what a tremendous honor you do me, and I will strive to be worthy of it.
Thrall: Then it is done.
Thrall: Let everything you do be done for the Horde.
Vol'jin: For da Horde!
Eitrigg: For the Horde!
Garrosh: For the Horde!
And there ya go! Interestingly, he did not declare him Warchief directly.  Will Thrall still be Warchief?

And did Garrosh get a publicist and get off the juice?  When did he get polite, humble, and less roid-ragey?
