Once Upon a Time
> Crestfallen
BC: Thank you, good evening, hi. Buena sera! Thank you so much for coming tonight, it's wonderful to see you. Tonight we're mostly playing - I'll speak really slowly, (speaks really slowly) tonight we're mostly playing songs from our new album...which is titled Go Ferrari Go. No no, it's called Adore. This is a little song called Pug, P-U-G, Pug.

Daphne Descends
Let Me Give the World to You
BC: Thank you so much. (Billy and Iha soundcheck their guitars) Okay... (Italian accent) What is this-a feedback shit? (normal voice) Heh heh, you ready over there?
Iha: Oh yeah.
BC: Hey uh, the low mids are really bad on this. On the vocal mostly. Okay, this next song, we know that you know it. It's a beautiful night, thank god. So simultaneously, we dedicate this song to you...but at the same time we want you to dedicate it back to us. Capisce?!
