assembled bhikkhus: (nodding, some applause)
buddha: the root of suffering is craving
bhikkhus: (applause, cries of 'yea!', 'that's right!')

buddha: the path to the cessation of craving is right view, intention, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration
bhikkhus: (go absolutely hog wild, hooting and hollering and doing backflips)
