Mark: Hi, Stephanie, this is Mark.
Stephanie: Hi, Mark, how are you?
Mark: I'm fine, I was wondering if you'd like to come over to my house for dinner tonight.
Stephanie: Oh, I can't, I'm on my way to the airport right now.
Mark: What? Are you in your car?
Stephanie: Uh-huh! I put my home phone on call forwarding so it rings in the car. I'm just gonna pick up an old friend who's flying in from Rio.
Mark: Who do you know from Rio?
Stephanie: He's a guitar player, his name is Jim McGuinn, and he's back from Rio.

Here's the text of what Stan said:
Well, Dread, it's Stan Ridgway, and I'm afraid I did not get it together. You probably figured that out... I think I'm going to nail myself to the cross of, uh, the Residents now, and just become a mole-man. But I didn't get anything together. I'm just not happy with what I had. I wish you good luck with your record, and um, maybe there were other people that, uh, this happened to. I tried, but it just wasn't in the season, or something. Sometimes music is, is, is seasonal. Maybe if this, this'd, uh, started, uh, now, we'd-a had it by summertime. You see how these things go. But, um, let's keep in touch, and um, once again, I'm afraid you're going to have to count me out. It's kinda like I wish I could, but, it's, it's just not appearing. Like a, like a slight-of-hand magic act that suddenly, is not happening. But, well, good-luck-to-you, and the giant ant farm. We'll talk soon. Bye.

By the way, even though this should only be considered an "excerpt", this is really all of the song I ever did. I like it as it is, and I'm not sure I could sustain something interesting for the length of the original piece... so sorry, but this is all yer gettin'.
