Alright, that guy up there in the Zero shirt and your girlfriend, you come down here, you can sit in these seats, 'cause the rich people who bought these didn't come to the show so you sit down here. We'd like to uh - (Southern accent) come on down! You've just won on The Price Is Right. (normal) Thank you very much for coming to our fourteenth and final charity tour show. Thank you for giving that little bit extra on the money so we could give a lot of this money to charity tonight. Appreciate it very much. That’s that guy right there, Bob. Heh heh, it's in the second row, there’s some seats. And if the people come and kick you out, you can come stand on the stage or something. So uh, heh heh heh heh. Heh heh. So we'd like to send this next song out to all of you for being the coolest, most amazing fans in the world. We know no matter what they say, they won't kill us off, we're like roaches, you know, we’ll just keep coming back, heh heh heh. So we dedicate this song to all of you: Tonight, Tonight.

[encore break]
Iha: Alright. Far out. Florida, you're rockin’ me. Tonight, as you know, is a benefit for a charity. It’s a - charity is Center for Children in Crisis and we met the people today and here they are!
Town rep: Welcome everybody to the city of Sunrise and the Sunrise Musical Theater. My name is Commissioner Joseph Scuto from the city of Sunrise, and um.... (mic goes out amidst crowd booing)
BC: (mic not working) Hello? Hello? (mic works) Hello?
Town rep: One more time. On behalf of the city of Sunrise, I’m the city commissioner here, we'd like to proclaim today - August 8th, 1998 - as the Smashing Pumpkins day in the city of Sunrise! Thank you.
Charity rep: Hey Sunrise, I’m George Bush, Jr. and I’m on the board of directors for the Center for Children in Crisis. The center helps physically and sexually abused children heal and grow. That treatment depends on contributions from people like you and the Smashing Pumpkins. I don’t know if you know it but every cent of your ticket price goes to help the children, let’s hear it! We all wanna invite ‘em - we all wanna invite Billy, James and D’arcy back and thank ‘em. Let’s hear it, make some noise for ‘em.
BC: Okay. Now the good part. The Pumpkins are proud to present the Center for Children in Crisis with a check for $114,570.
Iha: How nice. And now, that was very - it's a very great charity and uh, we really appreciate you guys giving you - giving them the money. And now...and now, it's time to rock.
BC: (raspy) So, (normal) heh heh, (coughs twice). Before we play this uh - before we play this one last song, we'd like to take a moment to thank you. (jokingly raspy) We thank you.
Iha: (mic not on) Yes.
BC: Is that mic on, James?
Iha: Now it is. This is our last show of our American tour and uh, I don't know what that means but you're supposed to say that.
BC: Well, we're going to uh - we’re going to Mexico City tomorrow for the first time. We're going to South America to do our first tour of South America so you're sending us off in a good way. We love you, we thank you for your support.
Iha: And now it's time to board the great spaceship. The mother spaceship.
Transmission / Let’s Dance / Latin improv
(BC at 9:42: Now...bring it down for one second there, Kenny. (band stops) Now, we are in South Florida, right? You cannot fool this people, you cannot fool these people with any fake Latin percussion shit, there’s no way. You’re gonna have to knock ‘em out with some other kind of worldly rhythms here. So I issue you a challenge. You understand what I’m sayin’? They ain’t gonna fool you with no bullshit. (Latin accent) You guys have been growin’ up with that salsa your whole life. (normal) Alright. Are you guys ready? They’re gonna knock you out right now. (Mike leads and band goes into Latin jam))
(BC at 11:39: (band stops again) Okay, now, we’re gonna take you across the ocean. Wanna gonna take you ‘cross the ocean. You ready to give ‘em that across the ocean shit? The Atlantic, Kenny. Okay, now we’re gonna hit you with the - the Pumpkin slammer, ready? Okay, we’re all getting a little old, so we need a little encouragement here. (loud cheer) Just a little energy, right here. Okay, hit it. (band picks back up briefly) Nah! I said across the Atlantic, not Lake Michigan. (band picks back up))
