[encore break]
Doug Goodman: Youse guys get swept, didn’t you, by somebody? The Pumpkins are about as interested in playing here as Manny is in playing here. You guys aren’t worthy, the Dodgers are better than the Sox, everybody knows that. The Sox don’t even play in a real league, come on, designated hitter? J.D. fuckin’ Drew?, he can’t even spell his own name, his initials are D.J. We appreciate you coming out. Who you wavin’ at? Get out, this is my stage! You gotta have hair to come out here, no bald guys allowed. In a dress for god’s sakes. Just go home! Hey, three months, pitchers and catchers report, and you guys’ll be well on your way to losing to the Rays again. (crowd boos) You know it’s true. You’re a Yankee fan, I can tell. Get outta here! Look at the guy! He’s got a dress on. Doesn’t have any hair. Has this whiny nasally singing voice. Great songs? Name one good Smashing Pumpkins song, come on. Name one good song they played tonight. Hey, Rocky? I need some lyrics, I think I wanna recite poetry. “Hello darkness, my old friend. I’ve come to talk to you again. Because a vision softly creeping...left my seed while I was sleeping." That's a problem I've had. I’m fat?! I'm skinnier than him! I'm leaving, they don’t like me. (crowd chants “Dodgers suck” for a minute)
BC: Go back to um - hey Manny, Manny, go back to your mansion and your new four year contract that the - that the Red Sox won't be giving you. Ladies and gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen....
Guy or girl in crowd: THANK YOU FOR COMING!
BC: No, heh. We uh, we weren’t gonna play anymore. Well, you know, we just came back from Europe and they got this new concept over there, it’s called cheering. Uh, once we hear cheering, we sort of uh, we figure like, oh, you want us to play more. And then of course there was the booing...when the lights came on, there was the booing which usually means we’re not gonna play anymore so there was the booing, you gotta be accountable for the booing. Hey, 20 years of fuckin’ pissed off people, that’s what this tour is, 20 years of pissed off people. ... Well, if you like, we’ll continue on with the show that we had planned. Personally I don’t know how I feel about that but the show business part of me just says just keep going so....
We Only Come Out at Night
> Everything Is Beautiful
BC: Yes. It is with deep regret that we’ve come to the end of the concert. Yes. This is not a false ending, this is reality. And you know me, I live in reality. Every second of every day. Ladies and gentlemen - and you, sir, and you, sir - this message is for you. (singing) Everything is beautiful in its own way. Everyone is beautiful in their own way (speaking) and you, sir, you are beautiful. At Smashing Pumpkins dot corp, customer satisfaction is our number one priority. That’s right. I know through the years, Jimmy and I have stayed up many nights worried about your satisfaction in our product. We strategized through the years how to deliver more depression, more pain, more sorrow, more sadness, more confusion for your dollar. And in these trying times, we’ve gotta stretch those dollars a little further. After we bought our Sarah Palin T-shirts...our uh, Priuses so we don’t burn any gas so we can have energy independence for our national security, there might be a few pennies left to contribute to our fund, the Smashing Pumpkins fund. Yes. I know it’s a difficult decision ‘cause you’re not always sure what you’re gonna get. You know, they tell you at marketing school that - yes, at marketing school - they tell you that repetition, customer satisfaction in terms of understanding the product is key to continued success and yet, we’ve shot ourselves in the foot again and again, haven’t we, Jimmy? We’re running out of feet to shoot, aren’t we? Everybody up here has got a shot foot. Right, Pumpkins? Yeah.
Guy in crowd: Spread the wealth!
BC: Spread the wealth, my friend? More like spread your ass cheeks, my friend. Bend over and take what Smashing Pumpkins have to give you, that’s right. Your satisfaction after the show is my number one priority. (singing) Everyone is beautiful in their own way, (speaking) sing it! That’s right, it’s a beautiful sound. (singing) Everyone is beautiful in their own way, (speaking) together! So as you head back out in the cold night, we want you to carry with you a little flame in your heart. That flame may be dark, it may be black, it may hurt, but it’s a Smashing Pumpkins flame of love for you. (singing) Everyone is beautiful in their own weh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-ay-ay, (speaking) together! From the bottom of your heart. Shhhh. (singing quietly) Everyone is beautiful, shh, in their own way. (speaking) Listen...there’s a few things that we know. One, we know we love you, number one. Number two, number two, Boston produces winners. That’s right. The Celtics, the Patriots, the Bruins: winners. Winners. And number three, number three, if Jesus was on earth, he would be playing in this band. Cello, heh heh, he’d be playing cello. Ladies and gentlemen, that is the end of the show, we hope you’ve enjoyed yourself. For those of you dissatisfied, we’re sorry, we do our best. For those of you we’ll see tomorrow night...we’ll see you tomorrow night, god bless you, goodnight!
