[Even Better Than The Real Thing ends]
MacPhisto: [sings] "Even the greatest stars... discover themself in the looking glass..." [approaches tablet computer on a stand; sees a devilish face superimposed over his own image] "Even the greatest stars... discover themself in the looking glass..."
MacPhisto: "Oh, there you are... huh." [mockingly] "Köllllln!"
MacPhisto: "I see my old friend Bo-no lost his voice in Berlin."
Crowd: [laughter and applause]
MacPhisto: [claps] "Bravo! Bravo! I think he has his very best moments with the sound... turned... down." [sniggers]
Crowd: [laughter and whistles]
MacPhisto: "No sign of him in Ch-- Ch-- Ch-- Chemnitz! Must have broken his little Irish heart, not to stand there with what's-his-name... Bambino, from Die Toten Hosen. Ha ha."
Crowd: [laughter and cheers]
MacPhisto: "Standing up against the right-wing mob!"
Crowd: [cheers and applause]
MacPhisto: "Peace, love and understanding. Very funny!" [sniggers] "I've never been... so... bored."
MacPhisto: "MacPhisto likes a good rumble! Politics with some muscle thrown in – some tattoos, some burning crosses. That's... more like it!" [chuckles] "By the way... you clever types. It's when you don't believe I exist – that's when I do... my best work."
MacPhisto: "Don't believe what you hear. Don't believe what you see. If you just close your eyes... you can feel the enemy! Haa!"
