Howard: Are you aware of the music known as jazz? Are you aware of jazz music, the movement of jazz?
Vince: Why do you keep goin' on about jazz for?
Howard: Because it's the most important art form in the 20th century.
Vince: No one listens to jazz. Science teachers and the mentally ill, that's all jazz is for.
Howard: You better take that back, you electro ponce.
Vince: Or what?
Howard: You better just take it back, that's all.
Vince: I won't be taking that back, I'll be leaving it out there for all to see.
Howard: Drink it back up.
Vince: No. I hate jazz.
Howard: You hate jazz? You fear jazz. Huh?
Vince: Shut your mouth.
Howard: Ahhhh... you fear jazz, don't you?
Vince: No I don't.Howard: You fear the lack of rules, the lack of boundaries. Oh its a fence, no its soft, ahh... What's happening? The shapes, the chaos! Huh? It has to be simple nursery rhymes for you, doesn't it? [to the tune of a nursery rhyme] Dee di dee di dee dee di. When the melody gets abstract, you mess your trousers and run to your mummy. [Howard starts scat singing].
