Wembley Stadium

MacPhisto: "Off with the horns, on with the show." [laughs] "What an evening. What a theatre, Wembley Stadium!  All the history of this place. Live Aid. The FA Cup. The 1966 World Cup when England won!"

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "They haven't been winning much lately, now have they?"

Crowd: "No!"

MacPhisto: "What's happened, this noble country? We lost the Test... almost out of the World Cup... The Smiths have split up... there's only one man who can save us. Shall I give Graham Taylor a telephone call?"

Crowd: "Yeah!"

MacPhisto: [laughs] "Let me see now."


MacPhisto: "When you're famous, people give you their telephone numbers, it's true."

[continues dialling]

MacPhisto: "Shhh."

[phone rings for a while, then stops]

MacPhisto: "He...hello?"

Recorded message: "No-one is available at the present time. If you would care to leave a message, please do so after the tone. Thank you."

MacPhisto: "Hello...? Sorry, there must be some mistake. This is Mr Mac...Phisto."
