"One of, one of the things that I like best about playing in New York is this particular place, because it has - it has a stage that is conducive to, how you say in the trade, audience participation. Now if there's one thing that I really like, it's, uh, audience participation. Now listen... I gotta figure out something that I can, uh - do you think we should have another dance contest tonight? Oh, hey - the injured person dance contest. Ah, well, let's see...Awright, I'll tell you what we're going to do. Here's a, here's a guy who really wants to be in the dance contest aw-reety, aw-righty, hey. Okay..."

BUTCH:
"You are great, man - you are great. You are the best, baby. Do 'Dinah-Moe Humm.'"

"All right, now wait a minute - what's your name? Hey, hey - what's your name?"

BUTCH:
"Butch."

FZ:
"Awright, wait a minute, wait a minute. I have an important message to deliver to all the cute people all over the world. If you're out there and you're cute, maybe you're beautiful, I just want to tell you somethin' - there's more of us ugly mother-fuckers than you are, hey-y, so watch out. Now..."

GUY (BUTCH?):
"Will you bring my girlfriend on stage, maybe?"

FZ:
"Sure. All right, now you - he wants to get his girlfriend - go get your girlfriend."

GIRL:
"Hey Zap!"

"Good to see you again."

"I'm not a fucking queer."

FZ:
"This man is trying desperately to let everybody know that he's not a queer. He's not queer, he's not queer. Awright, and now... You are going to dance, like you've never danced before..."
