Corgan (over end of Soma): Throw that fucker out! Hey wait, throw that guy out! Throw that guy out! Don't be throwin' stuff at me man, throw that fucker out. Good evening. We're very happy to be here, just don't throw stuff at our heads.
Iha: Please don't throw fuckin' shit at us!
Geek U.S.A.
Wretzky: Oh, we're glad they let you all down here, we were getting lonely...makes the sound better too.
Corgan: You're all very bad, you've all broken the rules, I'm sorry. Iha: (unintelligible)
Corgan: You will be punished after the show.
I Am One
Corgan: Thank you, thank you, you're very kind. So everyone down here, let's say hi to all those people up in the nosebleed seats. Those are the well behaved people who didn't break the law like you people did. Now we're gonna try and sing you a love song here, we hope you like it.
Drown / Hummer
Corgan: Um, the university of Michigan State has asked me to make an announcement, apparently when everybody rushed down some people got hurt, so the university would like you to return to your seats, but obviously that's not going to happen. So, all we care about is that nobody gets hurt, I mean we want everybody to have good time and we don't want anybody to get hurt. So please, please be very careful and if anybody falls down next to you be nice and pick 'em up, kick them in the ass...we don't want you to think you're like a metal crowd or anything.
Iha: Use your best college judgement.
Corgan: Well that's why you go to college, right?
Iha: Dude, I came down the stairs and like I was rocking, but then like I tripped over this person and I kicked them, but I was having fun, so...that's right!
Corgan: So, we'd like to play you a song from our first album, does anybody even know we have a first album? Why thank you!
Iha: And what's that album called, Low Spark of the High Heeled Boys?
Corgan: Fish! Like to play you the first single off that album...
Iha: Jeremy spoke.
Corgan: Even Flow!
Cherub Rock

Corgan: God bless you, god bless you, thank you.
[encore break]
Iha: Thanks...(unintelligible).
Corgan: Thank you all very much. We really appreciate your enthusiasm. I know not everybody here is from East Lansing, 'cause I'm sure a lot of people come from all around. I'm sure the majority of you are from the midwest, as are we, and it's very nice to be in a real part of the land, where people act like people.
Iha: And corn is corn!
Corgan: Corn is corn, the women are men, rock is rock.
Iha: The dogs are cats...
Corgan: Thank you, we hope you enjoy the rest of the evening.
Iha: Please don't throw anything at me again or I'll beat the fuck out of you.
Corgan: This is where it veers off into Lost in Space territory.
Iha: This is by Ry Cooder.
Corgan: Are you ready?
Silverfuck / Over the Rainbow
[encore break]
Corgan: Sure you want us to play more? If you say...like to play you another old song. I wrote this when I was about six months old. You want a guitar pick? Wow...
Iha: You can buy these at any store. We don't use anything special.
Corgan: So, this is called Snail...you know Snail? You're not just lying, are you? I think a lot of people don't know this song.
