Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
Lucifer Sam (tease)
> Where Boys Fear to Tread
Iha: Alright! Rock power, heh heh. It’s now time for a good story of when I was walking down the street and uh, this guy on the street had these [unintelligible - could be “cards” or “cars”]. And I haven’t been in New York pretty much and he had these [unintelligible "c" word] on sale and he said, “Thirty dollars for a good [unintelligible word] New York [unintelligible word],” so I followed him. I don’t know if that was a good deal or not but he said it was a great deal. [2 unintelligible words].
BC: I just wanna know what your problem is, man. What’s your (laughing) fucking problem?
Iha: Well, it -- you know, step off [unintelligible]. Fuckin’ [unintelligible]. You don’t like diamonds? I got them coming [unintelligible word]. I’m used to this solo time. Uh...yeah.
Here Is No Why
BC: Thanks a lot for listening to a bunch of our old songs.
BC: Thank you. ... Heh heh heh heh. I’m still contemplating the first line, what does it mean?
BC: Is it?
D’arcy: The world is a bonfire?
BC: The world is vampire.
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Thru the Eyes of Ruby
D’arcy: Why are you guys screaming “asshole”? Are you guys screaming “asshole” at Billy? [unintelligible sentence].

BC: Take it, Jimmy.
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans

BC: It’s happy time!
BC: Happy time, you know happy time, here we go, happy time. Are you ready to have some fun now? Let the fun begin! It’s time to have some fun. Fun! You ready, James? (Jimmy starts We Only Come Out at Night drumbeat)
Iha: (screamed) Yeah!
BC: Hang up that cyber metal shit.
D’arcy: Here’s Amy Finnerty and she’s been to more Smashing Pumpkins shows than anyone can match.
BC: Amy, please stand up. Amy, please stand up.
D’arcy: Wait wait wait wait, James.
BC: She actually wrote this song, so if you don’t like it, throw things at her, [unintelligible word or two]. Just kidding, just kidding. I wrote this dumb motherfuckin’ song. But I like it. And it’s in the key of G, it goes like this. ... Happy time, here we go.
We Only Come Out at Night
BC: Oh yeah. Sorry sorry sorry.
(Jimmy starts Cherub Rock drumrolls and continues through Iha’s line)
Iha: [unintelligible but sounds something like “Maybe it should just be drums”]
BC: If you don’t know this song...if you don’t know this song, you don’t belong here, that’s what it is.
