Plot synopsis

Murray tries to interest Bret and Jemaine in his tour of New York band rotundas. However, Bret has a date with Coco, the girl he met at his sign holding job. Jemaine tags along on the date, and quickly makes a habit of inviting himself along on all their dates. When Bret finally tells Jemaine that he doesn't want him to come on the dates any more, Jemaine and Murray's conclusion is that Coco is pulling a "Yoko Ono" and trying to break up the band. Bret takes Coco's side and quits the band. Murray and Jemaine soon realise they miss Bret again, and Jemaine convinces him to rejoin the band.

The following songs are featured in this episode.

"If You're Into It"

"If You're Into It" [http://www.subpop.com/releases/flight_of_the_conchords/eps/the_distant_future Track listing of The Distant Future EP] Sub Pop Records] is a rewritten version of "Coco's Song". At Jemaine's insistence, the song's lyrics are simple and direct, describing what Bret would realistically like to do with Coco if she were "into it". These suggestions begin innocently, but quickly escalate to sexual fantasies, finally ending with a proposed threesome in a kitchen. Bret sings "If You're Into It" for Coco while sitting on the ledge of the Flushing Meadows park fountain in Queens while Jemaine, who has tagged along on their date, sings the chorus.

"Pencils in the Wind"

"Pencils in the Wind" [http://www.whatthefolk.net/lyrics.htm#02 Lyrics for Folk The World Tour album] What The Folk! website] [http://www.smokecds.com/cd/31015 Track listing of Folk The World Tour album] SmokeCDs] (also known as "Sellotape") is a heartfelt ode to the similarities between love and adhesive tape — generically referred to as Sellotape in many countries including New Zealand. It begins with Bret and Jemaine singing separately and in different locations — using split screen — and ends with most of the cast (Coco, Mel and Dave) and a large chorus of extras singing together in a night-time street scene, and concludes with Bret and Jemaine rising from the ground, in a similar manner to the end of "Grease" and 'It's Oh So Quiet' by Björk.

Other songs

"Coco's Song" [http://www.hbo.com/conchords/img/episode/lyrics_ep4_yoko.pdf Lyrics from Episode 4: "Yoko"] HBO website] is Bret's love song for Coco. Though only pieces of the song are featured in the episode, it is mentioned that the song is two hours long. Jemaine questions the commitments Bret makes, such as to "climb the highest mountain", and suggests that he rewrite the song with more realistic promises.

The song "She-Wolf" is only seen briefly as a song Jemaine is writing. It expresses his obvious dislike for, and mistrust of, Coco.
