Abbott and Costello discuss the discography of Stephin Merritt


Costello: Well, you know I’ve never heard the works of Stephin Merritt, so you’ll have to tell me some of the titles in his discography.

Abbott: Oh, I’ll tell you, but it seems to me they give these albums nowadays very peculiar names.

Costello: Then you’ll have to tell me.

Abbott: i.

Costello: Yes, you.

Abbott: What about me?

Costello: You’re going to tell me.

Abbott: I just did.

Costello: You didn’t tell me anything! Now tell me the names of some of these obscurities.

Abbott: That’s another one.

Costello: What’s another one?

Abbott: Obscurities.

Costello: I agree these albums are obscure! That’s why I need you to tell me their names!

Abbott: Well, there’s Showtunes.

Costello: Show tunes are fine! Just tell me the names of the shows they come from or the titles of the original cast recordings!

Abbott: Okay, how about 69 Love Songs?

Costello: That certainly is enough to fill three full records, but what is the title of this triple album?

Abbott: I just told you.

Costello: Oh get lost!

Abbott: Now that’s the first thing you’ve said right!

Costello: I don’t even know what I’m talking about!
