John (interrupting) : The Army, perhaps.
Paul : Oh, we hope you have enjoyed listening to the records as much as we have enjoyed melting them. (Laughter). No no that's wrong - making them. We're in Number 2 studio at the moment at EMI taping this little message for you.
John : Yes, we are.

Ringo : Thanks George. Ringo here! Well the others have thanked you for the discs and John's book and for everything; oh no, for enjoying the film. I would like to thank you for just being fans. It's been a funny year you know. One minute we're in England, next we're away. 'Spect you're wondering where we've been. (Laughter). Well Beatle people, we've been to Australia and America and New Z... (noise interrupts). Who dropped that? - New Zealand and Australia...
John : And New Zealand.
Ringo : And New Zealand. It's so much travelling but you've stayed loyal haven't you? Anyway, those airport receptions knocked us out man, great!
John : Dig!
Ringo : Well, that's about it from me. I would just like to say all the best for Christmas and a Happy New Year. (Piano).
All : (sing) Oh, can you wash your father's shirt ; Oh can you wash it clean? (repeated twice after).
(Yelling) : Christmas.
