This one had me laughing:

 

Fan: What is your favorite apple?

 

John: Snapple a-hard-days-night-john-6

Nice. Here are some of my faves:

DUSTY: "Is it true you sleep with you eyes open?"

PAUL: "Umm, well you know, I haven't seen myself do it…"

 

Q: "They think your haircuts are un-American."

JOHN: "Well, it was very observant of them because we aren't American, actually."

 

Q: "If John Lennon could come back for a day, how would you spend it with him?"

Paul: "In bed."

Wait were these only supposed to be Lennon quotes?

My fault, actually. Didn't know I had this in the Lennon section.

George when talking about the beatles promos and being the first band to do them mentions in a half jokey fashion about how Mick Jagger would claim it was the Stones

 

George "He [Mick Jagger] was always a day late and a dollar short".

"Well, probably we'll sell less records, less people'll go to see the film, we'll write less songs, and we'll all die of failure" (John Lennon 8/64)

Q: What kind of girls do you prefer, John?
JOHN: My wife.
Q: What kind of girl is she?
JOHN: She's a nice girl.
Q: What kind of girls do you like, George?
GEORGE: John's wife.
JOHN: Nobody likes a smart guy.

AND

Q: Did any of you get hurt on the way here?
GEORGE: I got punched in me face a few times. But, I mean, *smirks* that's part of life, isn't it?

Both are from their Texas interview in 1964, if you want to find it on YouTube.

Welcome FlyOn13 – yes there were many funny quotes. Humor was a big part of their early success, yet alas an aspect of their personality that has been forgotten …

Thanks, into the sky with diamonds, for welcoming me. a-hard-days-night-george-10
I never really thought about how much their sense of humor contributed to their success until you said that. Thanks for the new outlook. :)

Q: (to John) "Which one are you?"

John: "Eric."

Q: (gesturing to the TV camera) "Eric, here is the American public…"

John: "I'm John."

Q: "You're John?"

John: "Yeah, it was a joke."

Q: "Well, John, here is the American public. Forty million American viewers…"

John: "It just looks like one man to me. Oh. It's the camera man."

 

And…

 

Reporter #1

Q: "What have you seen that you like best about our country?"

John: "You!"

Reporter #2

Q: "What do you think of your reception in America, so far?"

John: "It's been great."

Q: "What struck you the most, so far?"

Paul: "YOU! (laughing) Okay, we won't do that one again…"

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know? I'm just one of those people."
