MacPhisto: "Off with the horns, on with the show. Do you know who I am?"
MacPhisto: "Because I know who you are. I know you probably even better than you know yourself. I thought all this up." [gestures to stage set] "This is MY band."
MacPhisto: "Do you know who Helmut Kohl is? He's becoming a very good friend of mine."
MacPhisto: "He stays asleep a lot... I like that in the man. Shall we give him a telephone call?"
MacPhisto: "He likes his pop stars to be exciting, too. That's why I bought these." [shows off platform boots] "Shall I tell him all about it, then? I think I have his phone number."
MacPhisto: "That's zero, two-two-eight, five-six-zero."
MacPhisto: "Hello, I'd like to speak to He-- the Chancellor, Helmut Kohl, please."
Woman: "Es geht leider nicht."
MacPhisto: "Hello, could you help me? I speak English."
Woman: "A little bit, one moment..."
MacPhisto: "Thank you very much, you're so very kind."
Man: [start of name inaudible] "...gner. Hallo."
MacPhisto: "Hello. My name is Mr MacPhisto, and I'd like to speak to Helmut Kohl, please."
Man: "Oh, Helmut Kohl is, er-- is not in office."
MacPhisto: "He's not available?"
Man: "No... Helmut Kohl is not in the office."
MacPhisto: "He's not in the office."
MacPhisto: "I see. I... I had that feeling. Um... tell me, could I leave him a message?"
Man: "Message? Wh-what is, er, your office?"
MacPhisto: "My name is MacPhisto, and I'd like to thank him for letting me back into the country."
Crowd: [cheers and applause]
Man: "...Ja. Please, er-- you, you telephone... er, Monday... er..."
Man: "...at 8 o'clock..."
MacPhisto: "I'm-- I'd like to leave it with you. Is that alright? I--"
Man: "I, er... I don't know, I have, er, telephone... er, OK, thank you." [rings off]
MacPhisto: "You're a very kind gentleman. I haven't been here for a while, but I'm back! I'm BAAACK!"
