[ Li Peng] Where do you go to school?

[ Li Peng] And you?

[Second unidentified student) Teachers' University.

[Third unidentified student] [Video shows one of the students maintaining order asking fellow students to make way for Zhao Ziyang and Li Peng to step off the bus.] Back up, please.

[ Zhao Ziyang] [Video shows a very tired Zhao Ziyang, speaking through a small megaphone handed to him by a student.] I want to say a few words to the students. We have come too late.

[Fourth unidentified student] You have finally come.
