PAUL: Does he buy our records?
QUESTION: What do you think of American girls and American audiences?
QUESTION: Here I am, surrounded by the Beatles, and I don't feel a thing. Fellas, how does it feel to be in the United States?
JOHN: It's great.
QUESTION: What do you like best about our country?
QUESTION: I'll take that under advisement. Do you have any plans to meet the Johnson girls?

PAUL: If they do, we'd really like to meet them.
QUESTION: You and the snow came to Washington today. Which do you think will have the greater impact?

QUESTION: No, I'm Ed.
JOHN: What's going on around here?
QUESTION: What do you think of your reception in America so far?

QUESTION: Why do you think you're so popular.

PAUL: I doubt it. We don't know it could be.
QUESTION: Where'd you get the idea for your haircuts?
JOHN: Where'd you get the idea for yours?

JOHN: I think it costs more to keep it short than long, don't you?
PAUL: Yeah, we're saving our money.
QUESTION: Are you still number one in Europe?
GEORGE: We're number one in America.
QUESTION: Where else are you number one then?
JOHN: Hong Kong and Sweden...
PAUL: Austrailia, Denmark, and Finland.
QUESTION: And you havn't an idea why?
RINGO: We just lay down and do it.

QUESTION: You call your records "funny records"?
JOHN: "Funny," yeah, the ones we've forgotten.

QUESTION: Do you think they're musical?
JOHN: Obviously they're musical because it's music, isn't it? We make music. Instruments play music. It's a record.
QUESTION: What do you call it, rock and roll?

JOHN: We leave it to the critics.
QUESTION: Okay, that's it. Have a good time in America.
JOHN: Thank you. Keep buying them records and look after yourself.
