Davy: Let’s have a nice round of applause for the Sundowners.
Peter: Yeah, hand of a—round of applause for the Sundowners.
Davy: Yeah.
Peter: Also, we’re gonna play a little game. Um, those of you who have uh, flash cubes and flash bulbs, we’re gonna play a game whereby uh, wherein we all flash them—I mean, you all, ha ha, not us—flash the flash cubes at the same time, and we’re gonna just make this a h—one big huge flash. And uh, the purpose of the thing is for those of you who don’t—I mean, one of the things is for those of you who don’t have flash cubes, you take a picture at the same time, and uh, those—you’ll get a flash picture, because everybody else will be flashing. We’re gonna wait ’til Micky comes out here, but when he does, whe—you’re all, you’re all gonna flash when we go “one two, flash” is what it’ll be. Got that? It’ll be like on three, so it’ll be “one, two, flash”, and when Micky—whenever Micky gets out here.
Mike: You’ve got to hold the flash cameras way up in the air, hold them way up now, because they can uh, they can really be a groovy scene.
Peter: We can’t find Micky, however, so uh.
Mike: Okay. Everybody load up their flash camera. Are you ready? Hold up, hold up your camera way up high in the air. Okay, everybody along the back, hold them way up, on the side. Come on.
Micky: That sounded great.
Peter: In the back, too.
Mike: Okay.
Peter: Okay, are you ready?
Mike: Now, everybody ready?
Peter: Everybody ready?
Mike: Okay, here we go. One, two, flash!
Davy: Yeah!
Micky: Yeah!
