~John: Couldn't have said that, Paul. More than four letters.
Press (to George): Did you write "Ringo's Theme"?
~George: No, did you? You haven't been reading the little bits of paper, have you, that says who writes "Ringo's Theme"?
Press: Ringo, what started your practice of wearing four rings at once?
~Ringo: Six got to be too heavy.
Press: Ringo, why do you wear two rings on each hand?
~Ringo: Because I can't fit them through my nose.
Press: What are some of your favorite programs on American television?
~Paul: News in Espanol from Miami. Popeye. Bullwinkle. All the cultural stuff.
