"Watch the baby's face. Watch the baby's face!"

-- very protective family who were surrounding the toddler sleeping on a blanket, as a very enthusiastic headbanger came a bit too close to her for comfort

"Let's roll this and smoke it"

-- one guy to his friend at the Sierra Nevada booth, which had a table covered in hops

"There's no soap. Wait, there's no soap! Now what?!"

-- some guy outside the portapotties as we both furiously tried for hand sanitizer. There was none, so we just walked away with our heads hung in shame.

Story continues on the next page.

"If I let her cook for me, I wonder what she would make"

-- in response to the Suffers' Kam Frankin singing, "Come on let me cook for you, baby!"

"Faster! Faster? Are you Ricky Bobby? You want to go faster? Ohh, that's exciting."

-- Kam Franklin, in response to a fan request

"What is wrong with people that don't like Houston!?!"

"Come here and talk to me, girl. I'll buy you a drink."

"Dude, quit yelling 'Tyler.' They're gonna play it last."

-- to an overly enthusiastic Toadies fan

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
