[Desire ends with a loud cry of "I LOVE YOU!"]

MacPhisto: [sings] "Try a taste of Martini, the most beautiful drink in the world!  It's the right one, it's the bright one, that's Martini!"

MacPhisto: "That's a good one."

Crowd: [whistles and applause]

MacPhisto: "Look what you've done to me. You've made me very famous, and to that end, I thank you. I know you like your pop stars to be exciting, so I bought these." [shows off platform boots] "Around about this time at night, I often make a telephone call. Sometimes to the President of the United States. But not tonight. Tonight I'm going to call the Chancellor, Mr Kohl."

MacPhisto: [sings] "Getting to knowww you..."


MacPhisto: "When you get very famous, people give you their telephone numbers."

Crowd: [laughter]

Woman: "Guten Abend, Bundeskanzleramt."

MacPhisto: "Hello, I'd like to speak to the Chancellor, Mr Kohl, please."

Woman: "One moment please."

MacPhisto: "Thank you very much."

MacPhisto: [sings] "La-la-la laaa daa, da-da-da daaa da-da..."

Man: [sounds like "Alexander Hoffmann."]

MacPhisto: "Hello, excuse me, do you speak a bit of English?"

Man: "Yes, a little bit."

MacPhisto: "Thank you, you're so kind. I, I'd like to speak to the Chancellor, Mr Kohl, please."

Man: "And who are you?"

MacPhisto: "My name is MacPhisto, Mr MacPhisto, and... he's an old friend of mine – becoming an even closer friend – and I'd like to speak to him, if that's alright."

Man: "But... do you know what time it, er, is it? Do you know the time?"

MacPhisto: [irritably] "Yes, I know the time. I know a lot of things!"

Man: "Mmm. So you, you know at the moment it isn't possible."

MacPhisto: "Could I leave a message for the Chancellor, then?"

Man: "Yes, of course."

MacPhisto: "Could you just thank the Chancellor for letting me back into the country? ...I'm back!  I'm back!"
