Some wonderful (actual) quotes from Beatles interviews.
Interviewer:Press: Does all the adulation from teenage girls affect you?

Interviewer: How do you feel about a nightclub called Arthur, named after your hair style?
George: I was proud—until I saw the nightclub.
Interviewer: Is your wife expensive?
John: Quite, quite…
Paul: How much did she cost when you bought her?
John: Er, she was about fifty pounds in Nairobi.
George: But she was second hand, wasn’t she?
Interviewer: Was she second hand??
John: How dare you!
Interviewer: Ringo, what started your practice of wearing four rings at once?
Ringo: Six got to be too heavy.
Interviewer: What careers would you individually have chosen had you not become entertainers?
Paul: I dunno. Maybe something with art in it?
Ringo: A hairdresser.
George: I had a short go at being an electrician’s apprentice. But I kept blowing things up, so I got dumped.
John: No comment.
Interviewer: What is your favorite food?
Ringo: I’m hung up on hamburgers.
George: All four of us are mad about hero sandwiches.
Paul: I have a yen for grilled cheese sandwiches.
John: George and I usually wait until someone else orders, then say “I’ll have that, too”.
Interviewer: Which of you is really bald?
George: We’re all bald. And I’m deaf and dumb.
Interviewer: Would you ever accept a girl in your group if she could sing, play an instrument, and wear the Beatle haircut?

Ringo: The real Santa Claus.
Interviewer: What about this campaign in Detroit to stamp out the Beatles?

Paul: You don’t look a bit like my mother.
John: No more unscheduled public appearances. We’ve had enough. We’re going to stay in our hotel except for concerts.
Interviewer: Won’t this make you feel like caged animals?
John: No. We feed ourselves.
Interviewer: Recently there has been an article published in Rolling Stone magazine stating that Day Tripper was about a prostitute, and Norwegian Wood was about a lesbian. What was your intent when writing these songs?

Interviewer: George, is the place you were brought up a bit like Greenwich Village?
George: No, more like the Bowery.
Interviewer: Girls rushed toward my car because it has press identification, and they thought I met you. How do you explain this phenomenon?

Interviewer: What will you do when Beatlemania subsides?
John: Count the money.
