Iha: Alright! People of San Francisco, it's time to galvanize ourselves and let’s get it together. Come on! I know you still have the fucking whatever psychedelic ‘60s and you guys want some enthusiasm right now! Yes? No? Have we been too psychedelic? Anyways, okay, here's a couple more songs we hope you enjoy. (starts doodling on guitar) Yeah. Oh no. It’s quarter to eight. I need some bait. (mumbled) I lost my mind and them too.
