MacPhisto: [sings] "Even the greatest stars..." [gazes at iPad on a stand; sees a devilish face superimposed over his own image] "...discover themself in the looking glass..."
MacPhisto: [laughs] "Buonasera, Milano. MacPhisto al vostro servizio." [bows and laughs]
Crowd: [cheers and applause]
MacPhisto: "Tonight, I bid you... farewell." [sniffles] "Arrivederci."
MacPhisto: "It's-- it's not good evening... it's goodbye. But as I leave Milano, my melancholy is tempered by the knowledge that my people are arriving all over Europe." [chuckles] "That's right. They go by many names, my people. In Sweden, they call themselves... democrats – Sweden Democrats."
MacPhisto: "In France, they keep changing their names. In Poland, they have names even I can't pronounce. In Hungary, well..." [chuckles] "...they're just hungry for me." [chuckles]
MacPhisto: "In Italy... well, you've a few to choose from, don't you?" [laughs] "My hot tip – my hot tip! – is Matteo Salvini, ohhh yes!"
Crowd: [loud boos, whoops and applause]
MacPhisto: "Oh, yes! No no no, I won't hear a bad thing about him. He can't spell very well, or count... but who needs facts and figures, when you only want to look like you can solve a problem? You just want to look like you can solve the problem!"
Crowd: [whistles and applause]
MacPhisto: "So many names, my bambinos. But they all have one face... mine."
MacPhisto: "And remember... it's when you don't believe that 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 ENEMYYY! Haaa!"
