Tommy London: "Now you guys have toured, like, I mean, you've toured the world. You've done, you've done so much. So I have to ask you this. What is your biggest ‘Spinal Tap’ moment? Do you have one?"
Brian Wheat: [laughs] "I don't remember."
Tommy London: "Brian has one. He has one."
Brian Wheat: "No, I, I don't it's, and people always ask us that question, you know, and, and I, I don't really know how to answer it. You know, there's always some weird shit that happens now and again, you know. That's, when you've been doing it, as long as we have, there's always weird shit, you know, every now and again, but I don't know, Frank, you got it. Frank, you got anything?"
Frank Hannon: "I fell down on stage a bunch of times I've fallen down. I used to be clumsy."
Brian Wheat: I, I, I zipped up, I zipped up my, uh, private parts in the, the zipper one time. Cause I was, I was trying, I was trying to pee on the side of the stage while Frank was doing the acoustic intro to “Little Suzi” and it took longer than I thought. And I got, you know, I don't wanna..."

Brian Wheat: "Yeah. And, and, and I was playing the bass right. I'm playing “Little Suzi”, do do do do do [singing], and my tech's trying to get it out."
Tommy London: [laughs]
Brian Wheat: "And I'm screaming, right?"
