Lawrence E. Turpin:
Alright, here's your giant banjo...

Jonathan Steinbloom:
Um-hmm. It's very flat.

Lawrence E. Turpin:
Well, it doesn't look flat from in the audience.

Jonathan Steinbloom:
It has basically, no dimension to it.

Lawrence E. Turpin:
Well, it's painted to look three dimensional. If you go back there, trust me...

Jonathan Steinbloom:

Jonathan Steinbloom:
Could they fall?

Lawrence E. Turpin:
...and that's a ceiling above us!

Jonathan Steinbloom:
But they look shaky.

Lawrence E. Turpin:
No, they're not shaky, they're perfectly...

Jonathan Steinbloom:
