INT. RECORDING STUDIO – DAY.
The PRODUCER and DJ3000 are standing outside the recording booth.
DJ3000: SO THIS IS REALLY IT?
PRODUCER: This is really it.
DJ3000: NO TRICKS THIS TIME?

DJ3000: THREE POINT SIX PERCENT COMPLETE…
PRODUCER: …out of action for a bit. Which is a shame, because I was looking forward to talking about the upcoming season of Robot Wars…[glances at DJ3000, hoping the factual mistake will shake him loose, but no such luck]…instead let’s get right to the music. Today’s theme is “chemistry”. I’m talking about elements, reactions, solutions, that kind of stuff. Let’s mix it up!
