Clements: The recording instrument is off, isn’t it? And this is not only deep background and off the record, it’s deep, deep.. . Have you ever heard of a person named Candy Barr?
Osborne: Sure, the stripper.
Clements: [George Owen] was married to her. And this guy is just-you know, he’s in a different orbit than most of us are. And don’t ask me why he does the things he does.
