    T: "Thanks. Am I too loud? I'm really loud. I'm not? This song is called 'The Wonder'. Actually, believe it or not, this song was written about DC, walking around when we first came here, around the buildings, that you guys probably take for granted. I don't even know the name of em, but it was a wonder."
    - The Wonder
    T: "We're gonna..ha...we're gonna lay a new one on ya. We got a bunch of new ones. Just like the old ones. Except for they're newer. This one's called 'Cinderella's Big Score'. Soundtrack to the movie."

    K: "Susanne, could we have a little more light on the stage? We can't do much about the vocals."

    T: "Special message! If anybody's parked in the orchestra parking lot, they're towing cars out of there. So, you might want to run out there, try to reason with them. This song is called 'Dirty Boots', if you know what I mean."

    K: "Susanne, can you keep the lights up?"
    T: "Wicked! That's from the new album. [laughs] The new album's on a corporate label, it's what we want."

    K: "Thanks."
