Neighborhood focal statistics.... without the statistics?

Instead of using the Focal Statistics tool to calculate a neighborhood statistic for each focal cell, I'd like to be able to simply generate a table of the values of each cell's neighbors. In other words, I want an M-by-N table, where M is the total number of raster cells and N is the number of neighbors for each cell. (Some table entries would be null for focal cells near/at the edge of the raster.)

Is there any way to accomplish this in ArcGIS?
