One question for John Smoltz

I was recently given the opportunity to ask one question, of one of my all time favorite athletes John Smoltz, a 90s Brave of all teams, (side note they are reason I love sports)... I was stuck, do I ask about the 95 series? The infamous g7 vs. Jack Morris? No, I was two and don’t remember that... The 99 walk off walk? (side note #1 all time sports memory) no smoltzy was hurt that year.... I floated it to my family (all braves fans by way of the Richmond braves aaa) my brother wanted to know who was juicing on the infamous 02 "steroid braves" (i.e. Javy Lopez hit 47 hr that year) no I don’t want memories tainted plus I was at a Javy Lopez walk off grand slam my first and only game at the Tedd.... My dad wanted to know if Mr. Smoltzy thought Sid was safe or not... Then I asked my mom and she casually had the perfect question.... What could Bobby Cox possibly be saying to umpires that would get him tossed almost within 10 seconds of the argument.... He’s the all time leader in ejections yet compared to legendary arguing managers antics i.e. Larry Bowa Lou Pinella his arguments lasted all of five seconds.... in short- What could Bobby Cox possibly be saying to get ejected so quickly so often. Does he start the argument with "Now your mother was a…." or "so your sister and I" what could he say that gets him so instantaneously tossed compared to other managers that had to kick dirt and spit in faces.
