Banter

Iha: Hi. Are you still awake?
D’arcy: Hello.
Tonight, Tonight
Zero
Fuck You
Iha: We would like to thank the naked man. (laughing) Alright.
D’arcy: Now that's show biz, folks.
Iha: Um...
D’arcy: Doesn't get any more exciting than that.
Iha: The naked man is a genius to show himself. A free man, free of clothes. We salute you, naked man.
Today
BC: Thank you.
To Forgive
> “Welcome to our circle of friends” tape
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Danke.
BC: Hi. We are the Smashing Pumpkins.
Iha: And how are you?
BC: It's very nice to be in your country again. It looks a lot like Illinois, which is where we're from, so...it's almost like we're at home. Almost.
Iha: That's uh, that’s right.
Thru the Eyes of Ruby
“Thank you for participating” tape
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
D’arcy: Thank you.
Iha: What? What was that?
Guy in crowd: Don’t like those lights, do you?!
Iha: Heh heh! We do not light the lights, um.... Thanks. Why's everyone so quiet?
Disarm (acoustic)
Iha: Thanks. ... Is everyone having fun? Heh. Reasonably fun, I hope?
Muzzle
Circus tape
> Cherub Rock
BC: Thank you, you guys are great.
D’arcy: Danke, gute nacht.
Iha: Thank you very much, you've been very kind. Bye.
[encore break]
Iha: Thanks. I'm glad you guys are still here 'cause we're very tired. I know you should be more tired than we are.
BC: Thanks for staying to see us.
Iha: We'd again like to thank the naked man for making an appearance. He's part of our crew. We pay him handsomely, heh heh, to appear. All right, groovy! Here's another song.
1979
BC: Thank you so much. We'd like to play one more song for you. We're just beginning our tour of Germany so uh, to those of you in TV land, we'll see you soon.
Iha: Where we appear on our new sitcom, The Smashing Pumpkins and their Crazy Apartment. We'd like to thank the dancing man.
BC: That's the naked man's cousin...Heinz, heh.
Iha: He's another great friend of ours and we bring him on every tour we can. He follows the [unintelligible word] man.
D’arcy: Give him a good hand, we paid him a lot of money.
BC: Yeah, but the insurance when those big wrestler guys tackle him, that's tough.
Iha: That's part of the act as well, don't worry, he's not hurt, he's just - that's part of the show.
BC: How's it go, uh...Deutschland? Deutschland? Yeah? What happened to Rudi, the striker on the World Cup team, that's what I wanna know. Rudi? I saw Rudi in Chicago, he was no good, he - he couldn't kick anymore. I was at the World Cup. Rudi, he couldn't - I saw him, I'm sorry.
Iha: Alright, well, we'll just play another song.
D’arcy: We don't know this man.
BC: He has an afro. He's Rudi. Right? Alright. I'm not crazy. We dedicate this song to Rudi the striker.
