Watch Out For

Benny during Waterloo - he's not used to not having anything to do with his hands (piano or guitar) and he looks so uncomfortable standing there with just a microphone. He keeps looking to Frida for reassurance.
After "Waterloo" ABBA hold up the words, "Wir kommen gleich wieder", it's mean "We'll come back soon" other artists came after their first song
