The Monkees dislike what the city is doing to their neighbors.
Mike visits the mayor to straighten it out,
but the results are unsatisfactory.
Being the only Monkee with a hat to throw in the ring,
Woolhat Mike runs for mayor, and discovers
the political baggage that comes with running a campaign.
"You know, I'm so hungry, I felt I haven't eaten in days!"
PETER: "Me too, man, I'm starved!!"
MR. SWEEZY: "On my door, where it says 'welcome', will be a sign, '75 cents an hour'!
PETER: "That's terrible!! Even downtown, it's only fifteen!!"
MIKE: "Just as I thought, man, they can't throw you out!
It violates every zoning regulation!!"
DAVY: "Are you sure, Mike?"
MIKE: "Of course, I'm sure, man, you don't have to worry about
them tearing down anything!! They can't throw you out! I'm pos--"
MIKE: "Hello, would you mind telling the mayor that
Michael Nesmith, Private Citizen, is here to see him, please?"
SECRETARY: "Well, what is this in reference to Private Citizen, Michael Nesmith?"
MIKE: "Well, there's a lot of innocent people just being thrown out of their houses by
this parking lot that the city's building and I would like to talk to him about it, if I could."
SECRETARY: "Aww, a complaint?"
MIKE: "Yeah, sort of."
SECRETARY: "Right through that door!"
MIKE: "Oh, man, the more I think about this whole parking
lot thing, the more I think we gotta do something about it!!"
DAVY: "How come?"
MIKE: "Well, because we don't want a dictatorial system running the city.
And the rights of an individual citizen has got to be respected, and
because we gotta get all this people out of our house!"
MICKY: "Look, man, if we're going to get rid of all these parking lots, we first have
to get rid of the mayor, and you know, there's only one solution to that, right?"
MIKE: "And so until this crisis is over, I will honker down
like a jackass in a hail storm...dot-dot-dot."
DAVY: "Oh, Mike!! That's terrible, no politician would ever talk like that!!"
DAVY: "Hey, Mike, look at this!! Someone's been
drawing mustaches all over your pictures!!"
MICKY: "Hey, that's not really that bad, a little gray on the temples there!"
MIKE: "You know, I bet you it was some goons from Mayor Motley's office!"
PETER: "I bet it was political sabotooge!!"
DAVY: "How do you know that?"
PETER: "I'm not a camp d'aide for nothing!!"
DAVY: "You know, that three o'clock in the afternoon,
there would be somebody at city hall!"
MICKY: "Maybe they're on their coffee break!"
PETER: "How long is their coffee break?"
MIKE: "From 9 to 5!!"
DAVY: "What are we going to do with all this money?"
MICKY: "It's two days 'till election!!! We can blow this town wide open!!"
MIKE: "Micky, the town's already wide open, man! That's what we're trying to change!"
MICKY: "It's two days 'till election!!! We can blow this town wide closed!!"
