MacPhisto: "Ohhh... jolly good. Shhh. Well... I'm not so very good at speeches, so I'll be brief. 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. Call me old-fashioned, but I miss the good old days. The Third Reich!"

Crowd: [boos and whistles]

MacPhisto: "Don't you miss the good old days, when the trains ran on time? Oh dear. My, as God said, and he was partly right, I could live here. I have a friend here. Heer Janmaat."

Crowd: [boo]

MacPhisto: "Shall I give him a telephone call?"

Crowd: "Yeah!"

MacPhisto: "Alright then. People give you their phone numbers when you're famous – it's one of the plusses. How do I pronounce that again – Heer Janmaat, my old friend [maat?]."


MacPhisto: "Zero-seven-oh, three-four-six, nine-two-six-four. You can try this at home, children."

Crowd: [laughter and applause]

Man: "Ja, goedenavond?"

MacPhisto: "Hello, I'd like to speak to Heer Janmaat."

Man: "He's not here."

MacPhisto: "He's not available?"

Man: "No."

MacPhisto: "Well, my name is Mr MacPhisto and I'm a very good friend of his, and I think he'd be rather disappointed not to receive my call."

Man: "Yeah, but he's not here."

MacPhisto: "Could you leave him a message?"

Man: "I could."

MacPhisto: [sings] "I just called to say I love you..."

[man hangs up]

MacPhisto: [sings] "I just called to say how much I... care..."

[Ultra Violet begins]

MacPhisto: "I'M BACK!"
