BC: Thanks a lot. Thank you. This is our latest single, it's called Thirty-three.
Iha: Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much. We'd like to bring a special guest to the stage. Of the Frogs, ladies and gentlemen, Jimmy Frog! Hey, let’s have a hand for Jimmy Frog, how you doing, Jimmy Frog? Another quick introduction, his brother, on the keyboards, Dennis Frog. [4 unintelligible words].
BC: You know after we play this song, I usually don't--I always wonder what Jimmy's gonna do, heh heh, what Jimmy’s gonna do after the song.
Iha: Right.
BC: See that group of people over there...
Iha: Yes.
BC: ...just all standing there? I say after the song, Jimmy just goes down there.
Iha: I think he's gonna--think he’s gonna crowd surf right over there.
BC: I say--I say after the song you go to the people.
Iha: Ladies and gentlemen, there's no telling what could happen with Jimmy Frog on stage but I just wanna remind you to dance on this next song, if you could possibly do that. Let's go.

Circus tape
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Yeah, okay, thanks, we're still here. We try not to go off with the big hit, you know, it’s kinda lame, so we keep playing after that. How’s everybody doing, you alright?
Iha: [3 unintelligible words].
BC: How you doing, James?
Iha: (silly voice) I’m ready.
BC: Are you ready?
Iha: Oh yeah.
BC: Yeah, you’ve been ready, heh heh.
Iha: My whole lifetime, I’ve been ready.
> Planet of the Apes clip
> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
[encore break]
Iha: [cuts in] So, Miami Beach, it's great to be here. You know what’s up. I have to say it's very cold here, but we're very glad people came out tonight, put up with us. [unintelligible] psychedelia, grunge rock and uh, cyber rock...which leads us to our next song...which will be of the cyber rock category, we hope you like this song, it's called (whispered) X.Y.U., (short exhale).
BC: What just happened?
Iha: (whispered) I said, X.Y.U., (short exhale). (short exhale).
BC: You think they’re gonna fall for your cheap parlor tricks? Let's--let’s have a rock and roll introduction.
Iha: A rock and roll introduction. [unintelligible word or two], the people over here, rock and roll introduction? (yelling, screaming by end) Alright, you motherfuckers! Yeah, fuckin’ rock! This next song’s called X.Y.U., come onnnnnnnnn!!!
[encore break]
Iha: Merci beaucoup, rock on, thank you. We would now like to journey through the past. [completely unintelligible sentence]. It’s old...but uh, these are a couple goldie but oldie songs. Hit them with them.
BC: Thank you very much. Thank you uh, very much just sticking around so long, we appreciate it very much, especially those of you way up there in the [unintelligible word].
Iha: We salute you.
BC: We salute you, thank you very much.
Iha: [unintelligible], the people on the back, thank you very much for sticking around too, you are a very special backlight.
BC: After college, I was uh, I had some problems with my voice and uh, some doctor gave me some pills and he said “These pills might make you depressed and angry.”
Iha: One thing our music doesn’t do already but makes worse.
BC: So I can't tell if it's just me or uh, it’s the pills, but uh....
Iha: He also has a cyber implant which might be new to you out here in Sioux--well, um, I don't know.
BC: What are you saying?
Iha: What?
BC: Are you saying people out here don't get technology?
Iha: No, I, no, I think they have, do you have cell phones though?
BC: What do you think, these people don't know about computers and the internet and...cybersex?
Iha: Alright, well, I'll just throw this out, do you have the same--
BC: James, James still thinks all you people out here are still chewin’ hay and kickin' it with the buffaloes and shit.
Iha: Okay, well, do any of you people out there have a prosthetic...uh, chrome arm? This arm is fake and uh, I bought it from Jimmy Page. Do you have that out here? I got it. I'm just kidding, I don't know what else to say here, so we're glad that you're rocking with us, we hope you can rock some more. This song is called [unintelligible but sounds like “Hey, put that back”].
Siva / The Great White Buffalo
BC: Thanks, thanks, goodnight everybody, god bless you and hope to see you again.
