Badger from Car Boot Vendors: "Whenever I roll into Pietermaritzburg I feel like a city slicker. It doesn’t matter if I haven’t showered or brushed my teeth for a few days, I just feel superior to everyone else."

Girlfriend: Don't you think it's a bit early to start drinking?
Boyfriend: Ja, if we weren't at Splashy Fen, maybe.

Nathan Winneke from HORSE the Band: "I need to find a girl to urinate in my mouth."

Daryn: "Dude, can I buy your sunglasses from you?"
Yusuf: "No, they're not for sale."
Daryn: "But you've got two pairs?"

Drunk journalist in the media tent: "Did you see that band THOTS? They couldn’t have been any more sponsored by DC if they tried. I think I saw a DC logo on the inside of someone’s eyeball.”

Drunk racist guy at the campsite: "I’m a member of the AWB. I’m gonna go to my car and get my 12 gauge. Then I’m gonna come back and shoot all of you."

Skeg from Lowprofile: "Check it out, look at that guy, it’s a new hybrid: the jock hippy."

Insecure drug dealer's approach: "Now listen, I’ve got whatever you need: acid, pills, capsules, spliff… What’s that? Did I hear some fluking over here? I'm not a poes, okay?"

Stoned girlfriend: "Should we walk down to the river?"
Stoned boyfriend: "No."

Chris from Westville: "He jolled so hard he woke up in a hospital bed with heart monitors strapped to his chest and a drip in his arm. The medics returned him at four this morning, saying that we owe them R450 for saving his life twice. All he had on was his Zoolander, designer underpants and a pair of gumboots."

Steve from Durban: "I woke up, peeled my tongue off the roof of my mouth and poured myself a Black Label."

Ross from Hog Hoggidy Hog: "What was that band called earlier, Straat-fishpaste-something?"

Claire Angelique to Hunter Kennedy (Fokof, Die Heuwels Fantasties): "I’m a filmmaker. I want you to do a song for my new movie. Why are all these people taking photos of you, isn't that pretty random?"
