Kurt Cobain: A lot of times, when you're standing around with people in a room, it's really boring and uncomfortable.

Bill Clinton: Normally you can have a forum for a contrary view.

Cobain: You create attention to attract attention.

Clinton: Just like everything that happens in life, most of it is how you respond. Would you agree with that?

Cobain: I don't want to get into that. You can't get out of it. I'm beyond that.

Clinton: Oh, boy, I don't know. Not like that, not personal feelings.

Cobain: I'm still kind of mesmerized by it. I don't know what we're going to do.

Clinton: I bet they lose money on it, but I appreciate it. Depending on what it was.

Cobain: Look, I'm not a very physical person.

Clinton: That also wasn't true.

Cobain: I'll play it quiet, without a distortion box, while I'm singing the verse. That kind of stuff can screw up a kid, but the reason those things happen is because the parents are not very bright.

Clinton: Well, I guess the answer is that it depends.

Cobain: And there's no one within miles around. Rape me, do it, get it over with.

Clinton: Let me say this though.
