Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) reenacted the infamous “Dean scream” that earned him years of mockery after dropping his 2004 presidential bid Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention.

After praising Hillary Clinton for her strides in championing healthcare, Dean began wrapping up speech by listing off states he said Clinton would win. He listed the same states, with similar intensity, as he did during that notorious moment at the 2004 Iowa caucuses.

“Because this race is going to be won on the ground and it’s going to be won in Colorado, and in Iowa, and North Carolina and Michigan and Florida and Pennsylvania, and then we go to the White House!” Dean yelled to cheers from the crowd.

Unfortunately, he omitted the “Yeah!” from the end of his original “scream.”
