Before Englishman In New York: "Thank you. Nice to be back in the Windy City. OK, before I sing this next song I just like to say that the next time I do an album I'll do a song about Chicago as well. What rhymes with Chicago? Tradoparko, Thinklago. What else? Elsparko, right. This song is called Englishman In New York and I want you to sing, because it's ridiculous".
"How do you feel now? [..] That song was my reaction to the most fascination television here in America, which ofcourse is TV-evagalism. It's so horrifying, that it is fascinating. It's not in my nature to kick a man when he's down, but really four years ago Jimmy Swaggart said this about one of my songs 'This song here by the Police, Murder By Numbers, was written by the Devil, Beelzebub, Satan, Lucifer. Written and performed by the Devil, no one else'. I wrote the fucking song".
"As I mentioned before, Delmar Brown has come home for all these years. And in the audience somewhere is his mother. Where are you mrs. Brown? Come on, don't be shy. Where are you? I think she's over there. Actually, Delmar is doing very well as a stand-in for Whoopie Goldberg. This song is called After Today Consider Me Gone".
Before Roxanne: "Here is the problem. Every night in my life I sing this song. 300 days a year for 10 years. All I want is one night off. Just one. Please. You harmless bastards".
