At the California State Fair venue in Sacramento there is this weird thing that can only be called a moat in front of the stage. It's actually filled with water. I have no idea why. Anyway at the Sacramento Show on 8/21/09 in David's banter he said
"I have to say - we've been on the road awhile and this is the first time we've ever played with a moat."
it was really funny.

I like the one from this video When he says "Rim shots are for jokes Kyle, that wasn't a joke that was a story...." haha Not sure if I quoted it right though

"Just some live footage and me doing what apparently I always do, which is walking by a river and singing some song" - in reference to the new video for Fade Into Me.

What about his sing song "That's why I wear black, because it's slimming".
One of my favorites.

I stumbled across this! It was buried! There must be some new ones?

ILoveDCYes, Good catch on the "I never shy away from embarrassing myself for a good cause" comment. I too thought it was great. Forgot about this thread though.


David Cook = Infectious Exuberance

"I will never shy away from embarrassing myself for a good cause"

I love this quote during an interview here

David Cook interview during Chris Evert's charity tennis event last weekend! He was the

on Ellen 2008:
" I wanna do things that have substance"

At the Niagra Falls concert in March the crowd was giving him grief about wearing his hat. He agreed to take it off for 10 seconds & he did. Then, after putting the hat back on his head he turned to the audience and said, " Now did you really come to see my hair or to see this?" He proceeded to turn those sexy buns to the audience and laughed. The he apologized to every guy there.

"my brothers are my backbone and my parents are my oxgen"-->david

The first 6 are from the Nokia Theatre, NYC show

The last two are from the Perrysburg, OH show.

"Alright, ok, enough,enough. I got people from the label here *laughs*"

"Step into my office Neal"

"I think this lady with the olive is having a blast. I hope."

"You seriously got that container for me? Oh my god this keeps getting better. You wanna trade me an olive and a bottle for a guitar pick? Alright. I feel like I'm robbing you though. Theres that and thank you"

"Did you know that theres a dude out here wearing a Boston Red Socks hat in the middle of the room? *Crowd starts to boo* No No No No whooo! I'm a Royals fan. I like the red socks, i'm with ya buddy"

"We're about to get the hell booed off stage. Next song coming up"

This ones kindal long, I shortend it a little. not much.

"What is that hand gesture that your doing? What? *people in the crowd yell AC* What does that mean? Oh DC, I thought you were saying PC. Oh TC hes right there *points* *Then some lady yells AC onKC Radio* Oh yeah. I gave him a plug last night I'm not doing it again. I'll let him plug himself *kinda laughs*. That was a PC!"

"Everyone give it up for Kyle it's jis last day. I'm just kidding"

David Cook

Hmmmm....I still think my favorite quote from David was at the Virginia Beach show (Patriotic fest) where he was trying to crack funnier jokes than Matt Nathanson.

"The whole time I was backstage I was like, THAT'S where I'm going to go off stage and run into the crowd. THAT'S it. So I tried it...and I realized..well, I can't get to you guys. *long pause*. But I can go stand by the pissers over dad would be proud."

And at the Delaware State Fair-
"Who watched the mlb homerun durby?! *Very few people cheer* Okay not many baseball fans..walking away from that subject."

Ashlieeeeeee =]

"I never cry. There was dust in the air" (in response to Kim Caldwell's comment "You're gonna cry again")

From the golf video: "You got my publishing, my car, my first born son"

"If you can't feel 7 thousand people cheering for you, then you're in the wrong business"

ETA: My absolute fave quotes are my sig and the above.

"The goal is to leave it on the stage" ~DRC

"I hadn't been here in a minute, I forgot how damn hot it gets. If I had known it was gonna be this work, I would have worn a tank top and some booty shorts." ::crowd cheers:: "Let's be honest, I wasn't expecting that reaction ... or was I? ... So I'll tell you what. I'll make you guys a deal. We'll play more music if you guys PROMISE to visit our merch guy Mike up there, and pick up a t-shirt ... or better yet, tell him we need booty shorts ::laughing::"

"Thank you so much for coming out tonite," and "I love you, too"

"I feel alive beside you and all at once I am whole again.."

"im just a goof who got lucky" and also (i love this one), "if this thing doesnt work out im gonna go do that hot dog eating contest" i have many more, but after reading al these, i forgot them!! oh well

carry me down
rolling in your arms,
'cause i cant remember ever falling this hard

I loved reading all of these!! He is truly an amazing person, and it never ceases to amaze me just how down to earth he is. I personally love the quote from the live concert in Tulsa when they did the Radiohead cover--I laugh every time!

Another thing, I went to his concert on July 5th in Galveston, and I was sitting rather close to the front with several hundred people behind me. Well, David asked the audience who all had the album, and, of course, most everyone raised their hands and cheered. After it died down a bit, he says, "Everyone in the back has the album, but there's this guy on the third row who didn't raise his hand. Like, what the hell?" while giggling and shaking his head. Haha just thought I'd share that. Smiling

One of my faves, because I can absolutely identify:

"I can do that. I can speak.......I can talk for days."

First's an example, he says it ALL the time!

"I feel alive beside you and all at once I am whole again.."
and I willl sing your songs at the top of my lungs every day..

"Keep on...keepin on"
It was in an interview (I believe he was talking about Adam) but I don't remember which one. Sorry. I love the quote and have used it myself.

Ok I can't believe noone has posted this yet. This was from the Bob & Tom interview today. When talking about Dublin ""Hey buddy, how ya doin' buddy. Wanna go squirt in the dirt?" It was just priceless.

This one is from an interview at the All-Star game:

Interviewer: "How big of a Royals fan are you?"
David: *laughs* "Big enough to where I'm legitimately worried that I might get offed here in St. Louis today, right? Cause you know, there's still some people mad about the '85 Series, and I'm sorry, I was three."

Fan asks, "When you're up on stage do you ever look behind you at the big screen and think, 'Damn that's a sweet ass,' and then you realize it's your own?"
David responds, "No, but sometimes I look up at the screen and think 'God that's a sweet ass,' and it ends up being the bass player's."

can't remember where I got this, but it was in another thread lol, and I loved it!!!


"If I could have a super power, I'd like the ability I can, you know?...soar...with...the birds."

Hey archie, wanna hear a joke?


If i could have a superpower, i'd like the ability I can, you know?..soar...with..the birds"

did you hear about the new pirate movie??? ITS RATED ....ARGGGGGGG!!!!! haahah that one is my favorite!!

The "suck it Archuleta"? is from VH1 Best year ever. Go check it out on youtube and it will make sense. Our man needs to add comedic genious to his list of talents.

Okay, something is bothering me about one of the quotes in this thread. What was the context behind "Suck it Archuleta"? It doesn't sound much like our sweet David, is all I am saying.... Sad

Where did the "media whore" quote come from? I love it! lol. Whoever does know, can you send me a message b/c I probably wont check here. Thank you!!!!

"Lets be real folks, did you come here to see the hat *the crowd boos* or did you come to see thiiiiiiis" haha I was @ that concert everyone was just rolling.

"Tiemann, I'm gonna beat your a**"
haha i love it.

People tend to have a sort of pattern when talking... I usually talk in British slang... someone I used to talk to online said "Just happens to be" A LOT... But yeah... I don't have a quote... Just wanted to say that...

"First off, " have you noticed how he says this all the time lately?

I love it~ at the beginning of vlogs, bulletins......cute!

"I'm still the same person," he says. "I still have the same morals and values and the same things are still important to me. The surroundings have changed quite a bit."

This one is a bit old, but I love it

"My mindset in writing Truth Is A Gun was to convey my regret for whatever dishonesty I had committed in life and how it had hurt those around me. The lyrics, however, contradict that idea. The lyrics seem to suggest that I am condemning others for lying, when in fact I m condemning myself. "

"I'll be damned if there isn't this green sign with my name on it".
