2nd July 1993
[Desire ends with MacPhisto remarking "Oh, I love when it does that!" as Zoo ECUs rain down.]
MacPhisto: "Off with the horns, on with the show. Look what you've done to me. Look what you've done to me. You've made me very famous... and I thank you. I know you like your pop stars to be exciting, so I bought these. Do you like them?"
MacPhisto: "What a wonderful night. All the lights, all the special effects. But do you know, sometimes... I feel quite lonely. And sad. Triste. And I think... of home. Would you mind awfully if I made a telephone call home? I have some friends there and they're having a party tonight. It's a birthday party – shall we ring them up and wish them happy birthday? Would you do that for me? I live in a place called Dublin, Ireland, in a house called Telefís Éireann. Shall I give them a call now?"
MacPhisto: "They're an awfully nice group of people – they're a group too, their name is Clannad. A kind of a family. And this is a family show..."
[Man: "Bit of a problem with sound."]
MacPhisto: "Hello, I'd like to speak to the good people of Clannad."
[group laughter in the background]
MacPhisto: "My name is MacPhisto, and I have some friends here that'd like to sing you happy birthday!"
Máire Brennan: "Hello! How are you doing?"
MacPhisto: "Hello Máire, my old friend."
Máire: "Hello, Mr Mac-- MacPhisto!" [laughs]
MacPhisto: "How are you?"
Máire: "Lovely to see you..."
MacPhisto: [sings] "Happy birthday to you... happy birthday to you..."
MacPhisto & crowd: [singing] "Happy birthday dear Clannad, happy birthday to you!"
[Ultra Violet begins]
Máire: "You wouldn't do us a favour, erm... MacPhisto?"
MacPhisto: "I love you, Máire."
Máire: "Oh thank you, thank you!" [laughs as MacPhisto starts the song]
