Purple Rain (Prince) Easter Egg - Reversed Film Out-Take in "Baby I'm a Star"

Sixteen seconds into track eight, "Baby I'm a Star," you can hear reversed gibberish, though not nearly as clear and up front as the closing religious a cappella at the end of track five, "Darling Nikki."
When played in reverse, (and best heard on cheap midrange heavy speakers) you can hear part of former Revolution band mates Wendy and Lisa's out-take scene (still bummed over Prince ignoring their songs submitted to him) from Purple Rain the Movie.

Wendy: Somebody's f**ked up man, what do they know?
Lisa: All they tape is his big mouth!
Wendy: Really! What the f**k do they know?
Lisa: (sarcastic) Come on baby let's go...crazy.
The reversed sample then repeats at the tracks' closing.
It is a personal guess that Prince used this tidbit of dialogue to augment the perceived arrogance of the song.
Who knows?
