The Moment ABBA Decided On Their Band Name
INT. A SAUNA. STOCKHOLM.
BENNY: Oh, yes, yes, yes. That is so good.
BJORN: Do you want some more, Benny?
BENNY: Just one more...Oh, Bjorn! That is so good!
BJORN: That seems to be the last of the coal, anyway.
BENNY: Did you get to speak to Stig last night, Bjorn?
BJORN: I did. And Stig has some big ideas for our next gig.
BENNY: I don't dig Stig's big ideas. Remember when he wanted us all to wear hot pants?
BJORN: Stig's no prig. Neither am I, Benny.
BENNY: You've got a good figure, Bjorn. But do you really think the world is ready for my big ass?
BJORN: I suppose not. But three out of four isn't bad.
BENNY: OK, then. Hit me with Stig's marvellous brainwave.
BJORN: He says at our next gig...We'll have our initials in lights behind us on stage. The first letters of all our first names will be the new name of the band! 'BABA'!
BJORN: Yes, 'BABA'.
BENNY: Oh great idea, Stig. And we can call the first album '40 Thieves'.
BJORN: Great minds think alike, Benny.
BENNY: Calm down, Bjorn. Sit down and cover your modesty. You and I have some talking to do.
