"I just think it's wild, you know, that you can go somewhere that's 16 hour time difference than us, and people know who you are, and they have your shirts and they're playing your music. It, it's just weird, you know, and I think it's great."

"I've always liked to eat the Kobi beef steaks when I'm there. That's the best meat usually you can get, in the whole world."

[Marilyn to someone off camera] "So what do I have to do at this sales meeting?"

[Voice] "It's Tony, you and me. We've got a convention, there's like a thousand people, you're gonna go through the convention and we're on last. And Manson comes after.. "

[music changes to Coma White, shots of Marilyn riding in car, Marilyn gets out at hotel]

"Anytime I go to Japan, I'm pretty positive about it because I look at is as just another opportunity, just another experience. If I didn't really wanna do it, I wouldn't do it, because I refuse to do anything that I don't want to do."

[Marilyn to camera] "Long day tomorrow. Get some rest."

"That's the only thing you can go to bed at night being happy about is knowing that you do stuff that you believe in."
