H.M. Murdock: [fiddling with a radio] I can't believe this music. What happened to, to, Van Halen, Boy George, Frankie Goes To Hollywood?
Kelly Stevens: Frankie Goes To Hollywood?
H.M. Murdock: You'll love it, it has a great beat to it.
Kelly Stevens: I gotta be honest to you, I've never really liked that kind of music.
H.M. Murdock: What about The Rolling Stones?
Kelly Stevens: Oh, oh, well, I know them, in fact there's a song they did I really like, 'Norwegian Wood'.
H.M. Murdock: That was The Beatles.
Kelly Stevens: [laughs] Oh, well I always get them confused.
