Avril: Yeah, I got locked in a bathroom in the plane.
Damien: You did?
Damien: For how long? Is this until your DVD goes platinum?

Damien: The screenings of your DVD in theaters across America tonight. Are you nervous about how it’s going to be received?
Avril: I guess I never think about things as they’re happening. But it’s pretty cool it’s going to be in theaters. I’m not nervous you I think people will think it’s funny. It’s just normal stuff.
