Behind the scenes


Oh Irma, you gave me a piece of your bacon, I saved it till May. Oh Irma, when you threw that eraser you [inaudible] my heart. Oh Irma...

—Martin [singing], to Irma on-air

Hi... um, well, everybody knows about... yesterday. Martin, I was awful. I said some things I didn't mean, just to hurt you. I don't expect forgiveness, but I truly am sorry. And if you're not in my life, I'll be the real loser.

—Irma, to Martin on-air
