Notes About This Song

Zappa asked Pamela Zarubica to come to New York to look after Gail during the latter stages of her pregnancy as he was about to leave for a European tour.

While recording Zarubica, as Suzy Creamcheese, Vicki called to tell her that her father was looking for her and had involved the FBI who were threatening to arrest Vicki for withholding information. Zarubica called her back to discuss matters and Zappa recorded the conversation including a 45 second snippet on the album.
