MacPhisto: [laughs] "Oh, jolly good! Off with the horns and on with the show."

Crowd: [whistles]

MacPhisto: "Well, I see it's raining again. So nice of you all to make us feel at home! Jolly good. Well... look what you've done to me. You've made me very famous and I thank you. I know you like your pop stars to be exciting... so I bought these."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "Round about this time every night, I often make a telephone call. Sometimes to the President of the United States. But not tonight. Tonight, I'm going to see what kind of a day it's going to be tomorrow. You don't mind hanging on for a second, now, do you?"

Crowd: "No!"

MacPhisto: "You're so very kind. I do love Spanish people, they're rather like Irish people."


MacPhisto: "I hope I find a friendly voice... Hello, do you speak English? I'm Irish and I'd appreciate if you could speak a little slowly for me."
