I'm looking for the video of Zappa busting Tommy Mars' balls on stage because he fucked up a section. Can't recall the song or the film, but could someone please refresh my memory? I'm using this as an example (the importance of rehearsing and knowing your shit inside and out) to some of my students and collegues. The band is playing the song, then Tommy's supposed to sing something and Frank stops the band (whoa, bring the band down behind me boys) and then he makes Tommy learn the part. After he's satisfied, the piece continues.

You must mean Ed mann

YCDTOSAvol 1-Don't Eat The Yellow Snow

FZ: Ed Mann, who has been working on this little lick all afternoon, Ed, who only, he's, he's not sick, he only has bad mental health, Ed is going to play THE BIG ALFONZO MOTIF, let's hear it for him!

or

Make A Jazz Noise Here-Stinkfoot

FZ: Now this is a special case, ladies and gentlemen, get that spot light over here, this is Ed Mann. Now, Ed had a tragic experience a few moments ago. One of the loyal fans in the audience came up and treated him like a war criminal because he fucked up the lick on "Dickie's Such An Asshole" way back when--who knows?--several weeks ago. But the people who come to these shows listen so carefully to every little detail that this man was deeply offended by Ed's performance. So to make sure that he gets his money's worth tonight, we're gonna dwell on it for a few moments now, and have Ed actually practice, kinda warm up for that big lick that happens in "Dickie's Such An Asshole." We're gonna rehearse it right now, ready? Just do it as a solo, here we go . . . or . . .
Ed: Or the way we did it that night, which of course was completely wrong. This is how it went . . .
FZ: Or . . .

'We Don't Mess Around' (Cirkus Krone '78), definitely. The Incident you're describing is in fact two separate occasions, the first occurs when the band is failing to deliver a smooth segue into 'Honey, DYWAMLM?', Zappa is stopping the program and makes them repeat the section four times. Then later on, during 'Yellow Snow', when TM forgets to come in with the ' I brought you your snoe shoes' line, FZ intervenes again. Hey, this is what they made rehearsals for, after all..
