[Smear plays 'Sweet Child O Mine']
Cobain - "Over here ... Axl is due to a guitar solo duel ... to the death!"
Novoselic - "Corny & Slash (?). Does anybody get my joke? I'm supposed to be the opposite of Ted Danson!"
Grohl - "Thank you, good night"
Novoselic - "And, and the the somebody said that PC on my forehead meant personal computer, but it meant politically correct. I recycled before there was curb side recycling! I'm into butter"
RADIO FRIENDLY UNIT SHIFTER
Novoselic - "What do you aim for, put it on your head"
Grohl - "Hey Jeff, where are those fucking scissors you promised me guy!"
Novoselic - "Whoo, that's scarey, whoo that's scarey. That's path…etic, pathetic, we told you once we told you a thousand times to keep that shit in the dressing room! Sick! All that progress we made down the drain!"
Cobain - "This song is off of our first record, it's called Bleach and if you don't have it, you should buy it!"
ABOUT A GIRL
Novoselic - "This is like er ... ice tea, if you, if I was to give you a sip sometime, you'd throw it back and smash me in the head and kill me here, that wouldn't be obedience, citing Hallowe'en prayer. Real blood and guts, forget Friday the 13th and Freddy Kreugger, you wanna say something?"
Voice - "Fuck you!"
Novoselic - "Well, that's er ... I don't appreciate that kinda language. Don't you know who I am? I'm Andy Kaufman"
Cobain - "Would anybody like to claim this shoe?"
Novoselic - "Oh, that's right"
Cobain - "Let me see your other shoe to prove that you are the owner and then you can have it back! You'll take it?"
Novoselic - "No, this is an amputee convention Kurt"
Cobain - "Let me see you other foot, to see if it's the same shoe"
Novoselic - "Beat him, beat him. Hit him Kurt, hit him. Amputee porno, maybe that's it for the 90's, Kurt's giving a ... a brotherly lecture to this kid about throwing things on stage and listen I know you here to have a good time, but come on man give me a break. Did you lecture him Kurt?"
Cobain - "Apparently he wasn't the one who threw it, he lost it and then some other asshole threw it, so now, I have to buy him a new pair of shoes! And the asshole who threw it is just smiling away you know I'm sure, right there"
Novoselic - "This is a nice sized hall, a really nice size. You're good people, come to my house anytime, mi caso, tu caso. I live in a shanty shack underneath a bridge"
Novoselic - "Whoo, that's scarey, hoo"
Voice - "Wooooooo"
Cobain - "This is the ghost of Hennie Youngman (?) who's playing cello for us this evening. How many of you people saw Devo?"
Novoselic - "Right"
Cobain - "I'm sure you did!"
Novoselic - "Right"
Cobain - "Awwwww, no no no no"
Grohl - "??"
COME AS YOU ARE
[Cobain sings "diarrhoea" in the middle]
Novoselic - "So Hallowe'en's supposed to be a Satanic holiday, little kids in Batman masks who are worshipping the devil, little kids in Barney masks!"
Novoselic - "... cocaine, well there is an epidemic, William Bennett was right. Where would you be today without him, Kurt?"
Cobain - "I would be a lot smarter ... I think"
Novoselic - "[plays a small part of a bass line] That's a Screaming Trees song"
Grohl - "Right, it's just like a Grateful Dead concert"
Novoselic - "You're all so kind!"
Novoselic - "Er ... grunge. Our genre is grunge!"

Novoselic - "This on is on MTV. This is a neat song to our info-mercial"
Cobain - "Chris, John just called you a bastard! Yeah"
Cobain - "Thanks, good night"
Voice - "[singing the intro to the Breeders Cannonball] Aroooa arooa aroo"
Novoselic - "Thanks a lot"
Cobain - "It starts off like that ... This song was written by the Vaselines, well not kind ... not exactly, they ?? an older song, but they made it a lot better! One, two, three, four"
JESUS WANTS ME FOR A SUNBEAM
Cobain - "Hey let's play Dive, Chris"
Grohl - "Check the E"
