Novoselic: Hi! Welcome to Bathrooms Today! Today I'm sitting on a beautiful porcelain can…
Grohl: American standard!
Novoselic: American standard with matching bathtub! Notice the lovely brown and white striped décor! Today's most modern, appealing-type…
Cobain: Could you… dispose of this?
Grohl: You can throw it in the bath!
Grohl: Well, y'know, one time when a band I was in before Nirvana played in Spain, I had a fever, and upstairs at the club, right after we got done playing, I went up and I drew this really hot bath. And it was so steaming hot and I had such a high fever that I took this bath and then I got out of the bath and I had welts on my forehead, I was so hot… and that was it.
Grohl: I don't sing in the bath. I teeter a radio right there, right on the edge. And I put two ounce weights here and an ounce weight there. And I sort of make it so every bath is an experience in itself - life or death.
Novoselic: Living on the edge! The edge of the bathtub…
Grohl: Kinda like having all this electrical equipment in the bath!
Novoselic: Rock 'n' roll is an international language!
Novoselic: In the age of communication…
Grohl: Ding, ding, ding, ding!
Cobain: Are these the socks you got on the airplane?
Grohl: Yeah, I've been wearing them ever since…
Cobain: Do you wanna wipe with this?
Grohl: Oh, no! Not my sock!
Novoselic: It's like constantly going into analysis…
Grohl: It's like therapy, but bad therapy.
Cobain: Bad therapy! [laughs]
Novoselic: I find out things about myself and… now, I'm a better person because of it! Am I?!
Grohl: I mean, if this isn't therapy, what is?! He's sittin' on a toilet in front of national TV! Christ! This is therapy, okay?! Let me tell ya! I've never taken a bath in front of 10,000 people… this is therapy!
