Here are the things I remember about Trash without looking it up:
- the host of Trash, Jazz Jagger, claimed to be the love child of Mick Jagger and someone else. There are several mentions of her publicity photos, which are usually topless, or astride a motorcycle, or both.
- the protagonist was Chelsea, and she was hiding a TERRIBLE SECRET - she was also the daughter of a NOTORIOUS SERIAL KILLER! This was exposed, of course, on live television.
- other interns on Trash included Karma Kushner, the Asian adopted daughter of hippie Jewish parents; Lisha, a friend of Chelsea's from childhood who turned into The Ultimate Bad Girl, who wore a Cub Scout uniform top tied under the bust on her first day of work; a bunch of useless men.
You are going to the City. There is only one City. It is only said with a capital C. No one needs to bother saying the name of the City. It is the City.
You’re going to have to hurry, or you’re going to miss the Fair – and you never miss the Fair.

Dance, Bert, wherever you may be.
I am the Bert of the dance said he
I the Bert, of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry.
Who will share my peace with them?
Whom shall I send?
Here I am, Bert
Is it I, Bert?
I have heard you,
Howling in the night
I will go, Bert
If you lead me
I will hold
Your people in my paws.
