Default What Quote Identifies the Band to Other Big Fans?

Can you think of one quote or phrase that the rest of the world doesn’t understand the significance of but that a big fan would immediately identify? I’m looking for quotes that are NOT in songs.

“How are the tenors, Tony?”

“This is for you, Daddy.”

“The process is more like painting.”

“Isn’t that WEIRD?”

“Well, you wouldn’t say that to Bob Dylan!”

It's an old English pub song!

I think that's a good one, although it does appear in the recorded track just not as an official lyric. Meanwhile I always thought it was "Johnny", so clearly I'm just a "mediocre fan"!
In the same way, spoken words that appear in demos and live recordings are probably a good source of 'big fan' quotes. Like "I don't wanna be a cleaning lady" or "If my mummy could see me now."

You could probably take all of the dialogue from The Dance and place it here.

"I thought that John McVie had all the vocals! Juh juh juh juh!"

“We had a pact.”

“She burned her bridges.”

“I’m a Gemini. I’m two people.”

“Sloane Ranger.”

You F**k with my people and I'm gonna get REAL F**king angry!

We're going to do another song from the album Tusk. The album you guys hated.

I told her to go get a trainer

Welcome everybody

This is a story about a Welsh Witch

We're here to show you that we just refuse to go away

Thank you and a very good evening everybody

You have no idea how many stuffed animals are stuffed inside my house

We've never done this with a brass section before so this should be interesting

Care to join us sir

I thought they were saying booo and I was so bummed out

I will hand deliver it to everyone of you......sort of like girl scout cookies

I think this band sounds very much like Fleetwood Mac

Drive safe on the way home everyone

Agree that any dialogue from The Dance belongs here…

“Welcome to our little soirée!”

I’d like to also add to the mix one of my favorites:
“THIS BLACK ROSE IS FOR ALL OF YOU WHO DON’T HAVE ANY ENERGY!”

I thought it was him just calling out "John McVie on vocals"

Ding, ding, ding! You are almost the winner in this quote game. Switch out “concept” for “premise” and you have the most obnoxious bit of Stevie-parrots-manager-speak of the last ten years…

“Being in Fleetwood Mac is like being in the army.”

“I sold my soul to the company store.”

“It was for everyone and no one.”

“Today, a duck walked into my kitchen.”
