Then they disappear "back to The Firesign Theatre - I Think Were All Bozos On This Bus shadows again". A young man named Clem Philip Proctor boards and takes a seat next to Barney Austinan older man who identifies himself as a bozo person with a large nose which honks when squeezed ; he says, "I think we're all bozos on this bus.

As side 1 closes, Clem is directed onto another moving walkway which takes him in to see the President. On side two, we meet the President Austin impersonating Richard Nixon.

Public announcers repeatedly page Clem to come to the "hospitality shelter", and Artie Choke pops up again, programmed to take lost children back to their parents.
