I don’t want to sound like your mom, but all that kind of pushing, people falling over, it’s like, it’s 1998, you can kind of skip all the pushing and people falling over. Hope everyone has a good time, we want everyone to have a good time, we don’t want anyone falling over and uh, heh heh.

Iha: Ow!
BC: Okay, we’ll play one more. But we’re not sure you can handle it because it’s so...heavy.
Transmission / Let’s Dance / Help!
(BC at 13:37: We thank you again very much. We send our love out to you. Thank you, Tivoli Gardens, for letting us play. And we admit as Americans that Disney basically ripped off Tivoli Gardens for Disney World, so.... Yes, we’re ashamed, but we still enjoy its spoils. Can you see where I’m going with this? You know, there’s - there’s five lands in Disney Land. There’s Frontierland, there’s Adventureland, there’s uh...Tom Sawyer Island - is that in Frontierland? Don’t say it, don’t say it, heh heh heh heh! There’s the land where they keep Walt’s cryogenically frozen.... And then of course James, there’s Futureland. (immediately starts outro riff))
