Wretsky: Hi.
Wretzky: The Beastie Boys said you guys are crazy.
Wretzky: Listen.
Corgan: Yeah, the Beastie Boys were just telling us you guys are fucking insane.
Corgan: So that's why... That's why we're only going to play peaceful beautiful music. We hope you can get into the vibe.
Iha: Everyone recite their own mantra. C'mon. Whatever your mantra is. The sky is blue. It's raining. Whatever it may be. Be cool.
Corgan: I want everyone to stop right now and hold hands.
Iha: Find your significant other.
Corgan: And peace be with you also.
Geek U.S.A.

Corgan: Thank you, I love you too man.
Iha: I like that guy in the multicolored afro out there, I've seen you out there, you're a genius. We'd like to dedicate this next song to the multicolored afro man.
Corgan: When I wrote this song I was in love with a man who wore a multicolored afro, thats why this is so special at this time.
Iha: Was that in Paris?
Corgan: It was actually in Barcelona.
Cherub Rock

Corgan: Thank you very much really, thank you. We'd like to do another one of our hippie songs for you. You know its a shame they had to cancel woodstock today. You know I guess uh, I guess not enough people believed that we were Collective Soul, so they had to cancel it.
Shine (tease)

Iha: Yeah! Play that wack-ass shit there on the guitar! Come on! Fuck I know that song from somewhere!
Corgan: I stole this song from the Smashing Pumpkins, I stole this song and I don't feel guilty, no.
Iha: Fuck, I know that song! Come on people! Come on Saratoga!
Corgan: Gonna rip it off one more time...
Iha: One more time!
Corgan: Can you feel it, I'm gonna shine for you.
Iha: Shine people! Come on, shine with me!

Corgan: Let your lovelight shine on me. Kurt--whoever Kurt is he should be pissed off about that one too, they ripped him off on that one too. That's right, I'm not bitter at all man, I'm not bitter at all.
