Cherub Rock
Corgan: My shit's all fucked up. Pardon me. James will tell you a joke.
Iha: All right, it's time for the human beat box! Come on! (beatboxing). Damn, kick a motherfuckin' dope ass jam for the fuckin' Normal, yeah, yeah motherfuckin' Normal!
Corgan: (uninteligible)
Iha: I'm sorry, I just lost my mind.
Corgan: No one can hear what you're saying anyway.
Iha: I said, "damn, yeah kick a motherfuckin' jam, yeah!" And uh, this next song is uh, a song I'm sure you all know and love. It's an alternative classic.
Corgan: It's an alternative classic?
Iha: This is uh, pre-Dream.
Corgan: Anyway, what I was going to say is uh, thanks to you ten people who used to come see us at the Gallery. I would like to thank each and every one of you individually. I know all you people didn't come see us at the Gallery like four years ago. But thanks.

Corgan: If there's anything we don't need it's shoes. If you get my drift.
Siva
[encore break]
Iha: Thank you Normal. Thanks a lot but uh, it looks very hot and gross and sticky in the middle. Kinda like a pancake that's been microwaved with a lot of syrup. I'm sorry, I apologize for my cryptic humor. Then again you can't even tell what I'm saying so I might as well recite my Beowulf for them.
Starla
Corgan: Thank you Bloomington/Normal!

Suffer (tease)
Silverfuck
