We've had some belters from time-to-time, in fact so many that we'd thought we'd  bring you a page all about the FTQL's most famous remembered quotes.  If you've got any you think should be included, you know what to do...get in touch.  So to start you off...

Individual question, to Steve "the Dude" Scott sometime in year one 1991-92.

"Which former cabinet minister has the same name as a jazz trumpeter"

Dude - "Eddie Calvert"

A second individual effort from the Dude, again in year one.

Question - "What is 40% as a vulgar fraction?"

Dude - "Twenty...oh no, sorry, forgot to double it".

Bryan Milner, to Harry Beevers (who had set the questions), at the first ever FTQL Finals night, at the Bridge Inn, Whitwood, just after the Junction had been walloped in the Final by the Golden Lion (now Railwaymen).

BM "Those questions Harry, they were crap".

HB "Not as crap as your answers..."

Lorne Mosley, to Iain Barton, at Counting House Kings vs Rustic Nomads match.

"It's sad when it takes over your life, isn't it..."
