Dave: Are you plannign on entering Drakes Drum in the races in the United States?
Paul: Oh, I see. It's nothing to dow ith me, you know. It's my dad's horse and I didn't buy it for myself. I bought it as a birthday present for him. So if he fancies entering, you know, let him. He's doing okay though, won last time, I know.
Dave: And he came in second on the first time out?
Dave: Well then, you've had two places two starts?
Paul: Yes, very good it was.
Dave: You're in no way concerned with Darakes Drum at all?
Paul: Well, uh, I mean I bought it for my dad, but I'm not...it's not mine or anything, you know. I put bets on it, you know.
Dave: Do you really?
Paul: Yeah, sure!
Dave: Doy ou have a -- what about your favorite part in "A Hard Day's Night"? Which one was it, can you recall?
Paul: My favorite bit of it, um, the field.
Dave: The field?
Dave: Very good. That's my favorite, too. What about any of the other parts? Can you think of any?
Paul: Ringo's bit was the bit I liked as well. The field best. Then all Ringo's stuff, and, you know, with them playing "Ringo's Theme" over it, "This Boy."
Dave: Yeah, by the way, whydid they coose "This Boy" to be Ringo's theme? Was it his favorite, Paul?
Paul: Well, it's -- I think he likes it, you know, the song, but it was just it fitted in. You know, that was the main point, really.

Dave: Nice seeing you. I'd like to ask you a few questions, if I may, conserning Jane Asher. Are you engaged to her in any way?
Paul: Nothing, no. She's just my girlfiend. Not engaged, not married, not divorced -- nothing, you know.
Dave: But what about --- It's been rumored that you were residing at the Wimpole address with the Asher family. Is that correct?
Paul: There's so many rumors that reach America--you know, about us, wich are completely untrue. That's another of them. She's just my girlfriend, you know. And I take her out when we are in London. That's all there is to it, really.
Dave: What about your next picture? Is there going to be a part made for Jane Asher in it?
Paul: (slightly laughing) No.
Dave: Thank you.
