Default Fave quotes in Anthology book

What are your fave quotes from the Anthology book? Mine (so far) are:

George: I have a very high EQ (equalization)---sometihng, like, 3,000 hertz. If I think too hard, my brain hertz.

George (on meeting Elvis): I spent most of the party trying to suss out from his gang if anybody had any reefers.

What are yours?

Ringo: "They became the closest friends I ever had. At old days they gave us enormous suites in the hotels, a whole floor, and we went all in the bathroom just for the pleasure of being together"

P.S: I translated it from italian so the translation could be not perfectly exact...

Harrison humor! You've just got to love it!

I loved the insights the Beatles gave about their meteoric arrival in America on February 7, 1964 and I really loved the George chapter early in the book.

Hahaha all of these are so awesome!!!! I haven't read the book in a while, but my favourites from the movie are when George says "He's STILL two months older than me!" (referring to Paul) and when Ringo is talking about the second concert at Shea Stadium and pretending to be incredibly disappointed that they sold 50,000 tickets. Also when Ringo says that he had a police officer/bodyguard/whatever standing by him to "catch the bullet"....
I'll probably remember some more later.

<font color="red"> That's a good one. George was very to the point, so to speak.
I laugh a lot when Ringo tells about the first time he saw JOHN and Yoko's Two Virgins cover. "OH, but if there's The Times", as though his dick wasn't showing!! </font>

I like this quote from George

"As a band, we were tight. That was one thing to be said about us; we were really tight, as friends. We could argue a lot among ourselves, but we were very, very close to each other, and in the company of other people or other situations we'd always stick together."

Ringo : The song 'With A Little Help from My Friends' was written specifically for me,but they had one line I wouldn't sing.It was : 'What would you do if I sang out of tune ? Would you stand up and throw tomatos at me ?' I said ,'There's not a chance in hell am I sing this line,'because we still had lots of really deep memories of the kids throwing jelly beans and toys on stage , and I thought that if we ever did get out there again ,I was not going to be bombarded with tomatos.

Paul : We were always very true to ourselves - and I think that the brutal honesty The Beatles had was important.

John : I sat in a restaurant in Spain and the violinist insisted on playing 'Yesterday' right in my ear.Then he asked me to sign the violin .I didn't know what to say so I said,'OK', and I signed it and Yoko signed it. One day he's going to find out that Paul wrote it.But I guess he couldn't have gone from table to table playing 'I am the walrus'.

I also love the Magic Alex part.

<font color="red"> I've always loved this quote and I've also wondered whereabouts in Spain they muight have been. I guess being with Yoko, it must be when they were in Majorca in search of Kyoko, who was then staying qioth Anthony and Melinda in Majorca. </font>

OOOOH! This topic makes me soo happy.

Most of my favorite quotes have already been mentioned, and they only other part I really like that hasn't yet been mentioned is the part about the maharishi and john going up in that... balloon i think? "To tell you the truth I thought he was going to slip me the answer. Very John!" I love how Paul tells that story.

I jsut remembered another part I had loved.

I love the clip where they show John and "Norm" reciting the wrestling dog story. Still the only place I've seen that story...
