Chris-isms (Courtesy of Crowesbase):

After Darling Of The Underground Press:
CR: " Well Like I said, Its nice to see ya'll tonight, nice to be back home and stuff. You leave Atlanta for a little while and you forget it becomes like the Sahara; walking around
breathing in this pollen. But you know, if you grow up here it doesnt effect you when you're little, because all of the pollen is right here (wafts into his nose)...when you are little,
you are down here like this (bends down and wafts the air above his head) and you think Wow, what an amazing place...when it really like a jungle out there! And then you wake up and
just want to go to the hospital... and thats coming form a native man... Rich is going to sing this tune...written by a good friend friend of ours name of Devendra Banhart...."
(CR to RR) "Do you have anything else to add?"
RR: "I dont really have anything else to add to that, thank you...I appreciate it, ya know."
CR: "You know, what happened there was that Rich and I havent done one of these acoustic shows since last year, so we were in a couple of months of rehearsals for this...and this is
just the beginning; we have a whole dance thing and thats where the rehearsals really come in....well, we aren't really good dancers."
(crowd member yells "Bullshit!")
RR turns to CR: "Someone out here screamed out Bullshit because they think that we are good dancers.."
CR to RR: "Either that or they dont like our banter."

After This Is The Way:
(crowd member yells "Way To Go Rich!")
RR: "Thank you."
CR: "Playing favorites again...its a complicated thing, our relationship...and I just think that now is the time to talk about it! We can trust you!?!"

After Hearts On Fire:
CR: "I'm so organized and you're so disorganized. Wow, that's weird."
RR:"I'm turning over a new leaf."
CR: "That to me goes to prove global warming right there."
RR: "I'm shirking all my responsibility for now."
CR: "Bout time."
(crowd cheers)
CR: "Welcome to the good life!"
(crowd erupts)

After Thunderstorm 6:54 PM:
CR: "The other title of that song was 'Getting Weird on the corner of Mt. Paran & Jett Road"...Thats the working title... It just came out as that."

Before Boomer's Story:
CR: "Nice to see ya'll come out tonight and everything. When we got here today, it made me realize the last time we were here was on my 24th birthday. So that was 6 years ago, and ah,
wow man, time is an abstract concept man. It's malleable, you can stretch it and move it and put some over here and put some over there, you just gotta really try hard. And there's a
certain cash advance you gotta kick in, but that's a different story. You gotta know the right people. I thought that was pretty far out man, you know what I mean. I'm sure noone here
was at that concert. If you say I was, you better bring the fuckin' ticket stub man. Because, you know, you gotta have proof, it's the future, you know what I mean? I have no idea what
that translates in the future, but it is the future, look around man!"
