A Mighty Wind (2003)
[after asking a part of the audience to neigh like horses]
Mark Shubb: We're going to have to put saddles on those folks!

Alan Barrows: And they had no hole in the center of the record.
Mark Shubb: It would teeter crazily on the little spindle.
Jerry Palter: No, you had to provide it yourself. They were still good records. Good product.
Mark Shubb: If you punched a hole in them, you'd have a good time.

Mark Shubb: To do then now would be retro. To do then then was very now-tro, if you will.

Jerry Palter: We don't want people to reach for their remotes here.
Mark Shubb: It's public television.
Alan Barrows: They don't have remotes.

Jerry Palter: We go out there, we do the song we're known for, we get it out of the way and then, 'hey, here's the icing on the cake.'
Alan Barrows: What's the icing?
Jerry Palter: Well the icing is the rest of the act.
Mark Shubb: That's the cake.
Jerry Palter: No, that's the dressing.

Jerry Palter: Things have been going really well. We got some gigs here, working at the casinos. It has been a time of changes, but change is good. Change is life.
[camera pulls out to reveal Mark Shubb dressed as a woman]
Mark Shubb: It was like a great big door opening for me... Town Hall... after that concert, I realized I wanted to spend as much of the rest of my life as possible playing folk music with these gentlemen...
Jerry Palter: Right back atcha.
Mark Shubb: ...and I wanted to spend all of it as a woman. I came to a realization that I was - and am - a blonde, female folk singer trapped in the body of a bald, male folk singer and I had to LET ME OUT or I WOULD DIE.
Jerry Palter: When you put it that way, it's almost poetry.
Alan Barrows: Almost.

Jerry Palter: [listening backstage to Mitch & Mickey singing "Kiss at the end of the rainbow"] I know this song. This is that really pretty one. With the kiss. Turn that up a bit. Remember, where they used to...
Mark Shubb: The kiss.
Jerry Palter: Wonder how they're gonna handle that.
Mark Shubb: 5 dollars says they do it.
Jerry Palter: You're on.

Alan Barrows: I always thought it was "hey nonny no, nanny ninny no" and I'm getting kind of confused with all the nannies and the ninnies.
Jerry Palter: There's no nanny, just take that out of the equation. It's "hey nonny no, nonny ninny o".
Mark Shubb: Iron clad rule, Alan. Nonny before ninny.
Alan Barrows: Well, I don't sing this one anyway.
Jerry Palter: No, so it's kind of academic.

Jerry Palter: [the New Main Street Singers perform 'Wandering' in the background] You swear to God you didn't talk to Menschell about the set?
Alan Barrows: Why would I talk to him about it?
Jerry Palter: You didn't tell him what we were opening with, right?
Alan Barrows: I never talked to him about it at all.
Jerry Palter: Okay,
[turns to Mark]
Jerry Palter: so you were talkin' to that Terry Bohner kid, in his blue sweater...
Mark Shubb: All I said was, 'Oh my goodness, isn't it warm?' Nothing about the set.
Jerry Palter: Well, it's gettin' warmer now...

Mark Shubb: All right, I don't think finger-pointing is gonna help us here, I... I think it's very clear what we do.
Jerry Palter: What's that?
Mark Shubb: I'm going to suggest we be bold.
Jerry Palter: Yeah, let's hear it...
Mark Shubb: We open with Wandering.
Jerry Palter: Did you miss the last couple of minutes? They're currently butchering...
[to Alan briefly]
Jerry Palter: Turn it back up again. Do you... you wanna hear it?

Mark Shubb: We give the audience a choice. We say, you can enjoy 'a toothpaste commercial', or do you wanna hear folk music?
Jerry Palter: I think they'll have already brushed their teeth by that time; It's not even germane.
Alan Barrows: Well, here's the thing, you can't have on a bill, especially on a folk bill, you cannot have two people doing the same song. It doesn't work; they're just gonna be flat-out confused...
