FZ: Then, from out of the corner of the stage, comes Roy Ralph Estrada,
perturbed at the present situation within the Mothers
  Note about Roy's Irone Pope' stage attire (as seen in the UM movie)
From: Bew Watson NDPP, p.525
  "In 1968 Roy Estrada dressed up as the Pope and distributed Smarties in mockery of papal decrees against the [birth-control] pills."
  Pope banned their usage for Catholics just a few weeks prior to the Royal Festival Hall concert

ROY: Ian, I don't think I'm qualified for the Mothers
FZ: They're making up their lines as they go along, isn't it thrilling?
IAN: Why, Roy?
ROY: Because I don't think I'm qualified, I think... I
think I'm holding the group back because I'm a Mexican!
And also because I don't play bass good!
  According to some Bunk Gardner' interview [Necessity Is..] this were the very same words that Roy used to say about himself in a real life. And very often.
