Bono quotes that defined U2s "eras"

Okay, so I was thinking about SBS this afternoon and remembered the little quip Bono says on the UABRS version -

"There's been a lot of talk about this next song, maybe, maybe too much talk...this song is not a rebel song...this song is Sunday Bloody Sunday!"

- and it got me thinking that that quote kind of "defined" the WAR era for U2, as far as Bono quotes go.

Here are a few others - let's hear yours...

Boy - ???
October - ???
War - (see above)
UF - ???
Joshua Tree - ???
Rattle and Hum - "Am I buggin' you? Don't mean to bug ya...okay Edge, play the blues!"
Achtung Baby - "...go away and dream it all up again" and "Everything You Know is Wrong" (not a spoken Bono-ism, but he probably came up with it)
Zooropa - ???
POP - ???
ATYCLB - " for the job"

Normal I'm cheating here... b/c I have the book Bono: In his own words...

October: I think that 'October' goes into areas that most rock'n'roll bands ignore. February 1982

AB: Fuck the past, Kiss the future.

Z: That's what I want it to be! Legal drugs... Sort of fucked-up sci fi. August 1993
