Soloist (Male):
Does your opponent deserve such abuse?

Freddie:
All Soviets deserve abuse.

Soloist (Female):
But even you must concede he can play.

Freddie:
Sure, hes the best red on the circuit, Ill give him that.

Soloist (Male):
He hasnt lost for a long time; he could be a tough nut to crack.

Freddie:
Listen, if he gets one game off me, its because I want to keep press interest going.

Soloists:
Why do you persist with vicious attacks, ungracious remarks re: opponents, it smacks of a lack of conviction- admit youre under duress, or that your only skill left is for money not chess. If Soviet life is as grim as you claim, then how come the boys are so good at the game? Though you swear the American dream is clearly the best, youre no advertisement for life and times in the west.

Soloist (Male):
Why did you risk the whole match breaking down?

Freddie:
I dont know what youre saying. What are you implying?

Soloist (Female):
All your outrageous demands, such conceit.

Freddie:
I dont see anything outrageous about demanding what Im worth.

Soloist (Male):
They pay you all that you ask for and then you demand even more.

Freddie:
I am the reason youre all here! Who had heard of Sergievsky?

Soloists:
Its hard to believe what were reporting. Why so disparaging? Not very sporting.

Freddie:
Are the Communists sporting? My God!

Soloists:
Tell all this to the United Nations. Are you an asset to east/west relations?

Freddie:
What is this? What have the Russians ever done for east/west relations? Have you people got any serious questions?

Soloist (Female):
Will you be quitting for good if you lose?

Soloist (Male):
How come your seconds a girl, lover boy?

Freddie:
What did you say?

Soloist (Male):
How come your seconds a girl, lover boy?

Soloists:
Well, what did I say? Hes out of his tree, hes finally flipped and between you and me, hes no hope of retaining his crown in his frame of mind, in fact he shouldnt have come here, he should have resigned.

Florence (Same time as soloists):
Smile! Youve got your first exclusive story. Now you can bask in his reflected glory. Naked, unprovoked, Yankee aggression Oh, what a credit to your great profession!

Soloists (Same time as Florence):
Well, what did I say? Hes out of his tree, hes finally flipped and between you and me, hes no hope of retaining his crown in his frame of mind, in fact he shouldnt have come here, he should have resigned. In his frame of mind he should have come, he should resign, when he is in his frame of mind, he shouldnt come he should resign, when he is in his frame of mind, he shouldnt come he should resign.

Soloists:
Well, what did I say? Hes out of his mind, hes finally flipped- he should have resigned.
