Cherub Rock
Corgan: Good evening. Welcome to the rock show.
Corgan: Hi. Welcome to the interplanetary dome. Wherever the fuck we are. Not Pittsburgh, I know that. Sorry we're out here in bumfuck, but that's the way it is. But uh, thank you uh, for coming and... I feel like I'm playing in planetarium, you know...
Iha: It's a golf ball. It's the world's largest-
Corgan: There'll be a laser light show after the concert.
Iha: Golf ball.
I Am One

Corgan: As long as everyone's being so quiet you might as well say what you think. There's something about this dome that's not very rock concert-like, you know, I don't know... It's nobody's fault, you know, it's just...
Iha: It's kind of cyber-like.
Geek USA

Corgan: Thank you. We'd like to uh, bore you for six or seven minutes with this uh, lovely composition. I said six or seven minutes. Sit back and enjoy. Thank you!
Over the Rainbow (tease)

Corgan: Thanks for puttin' up with our shit.
[encore break]
Iha: My nickname, by the way, is the spry badger. I'm just kidding. Dude, we don't know it.
Corgan: I'd like to uh, thank you and apologize all at the same time. I'd like- I'd like to thank you for coming and I'd like to apologize because I didn't think we were very good today, so...
Wretzky: The sound-
Corgan: It doesn't- it doesn't mean you're going to get any of your money back, but, we're sorry! (laughs)
Wretzky: The sound sucks in here. We almost didn't play from technical problems, and... I don't know, maybe that would've been better, you be the judge.
Corgan: Now that's not your fault, then.
Iha: Just means, uh...
Corgan: The Gol- The Golden Dome not treating the Pumpkins right here, man. It just sounds like crap.
Iha: We just gotta get funky.
(James plays funky wah-wah guitar)
Corgan: You're in the wrong band, man. We don't play the funk. We play the white boy metal.
Iha: Oh yeah, right.
Corgan: Thanks.
[encore break]
Corgan: ...and we are. So we'd like to do a- yeah, some blues.
(James plays generic blues riffs)
Corgan: Stop. Stop! (laughs). So we'd like to do an oldie for you.
Iha: It's kind of a sentimental night, and uh...
Corgan: Do you have to talk over every fucking intro?
Iha: What? Listen, miss... It's kind of a sentimental night, it's an old song...
Corgan: Do you want to start this song? You're doing it- would you feel better to start this song? Thank you.
Corgan: (sings) All... E minor. E minor, E minor! A, E minor, G, fuck you.
Boys Don't Cry (tease)
Iha: Oh, sorry. Go ahead, go ahead.
Corgan: (laughs)
Corgan: Thank you.
Corgan: Thanks very much, thank you, thank you. I know it wasn't the most exciting rock concert, but... it was okay. We're gettin' old, I can't help it.
