"He really didn't talk until he got his girlfriend," says Mascis, "and somehow that jump-started his ego, and he went from 'I am Lou, I am nothing' to 'I am the greatest.' He just went ffffft, just flipped the scales. And then he started talking a lot. And then I was realizing from a lot of the things he was saying, 'Hmmm, maybe I don't like Lou.' I'd never heard him talk before so I didn't really know what was going on in his head. And then when you hear what's he's talking about, it was like, 'Hmmm, interesting -- I'm not really into that.'"
