DC: "You know the thing that amazes me. I listen to your music, we were talking about it in the dressing room, you people have no Swedish accent. If we're to do an imitation of a Swedish accent in this country, it would be very broad and "ja" and "god". All that."
Björn: "Yeah, yeah."
DC: "Do you notice the difference in English accents?"
Björn: "Yeah, I guess we do 'cause we travel so much around. And you know, the Germans and the French have very, very distinctive accents."

Benny: "Well, from America mostly and England, of course. We buy all...Well, the records you got here, we got them at home. And also the English."
DC: "How many people live in Sweden?"
Agnetha: "I think it's eight millions now."
DC: "How large is your country as country. Do you know California?"
Frida: "Yeah, it's like California."
DC: "Isn't that amazing. I mean, there's so much music coming from overseas nowadays. Are you familiar with German rock, Kraut rock and roll?"

Björn: "I think that's what they call it themselves now because..."
DC: "We're used seeing that music trade papers. But if you say something like that... In this country we're made up off so many different nationalities. We're very sensitive to our backgrounds. If you say anything at all that's Italian that isn't complimentary, you'll hear from the Italians. Or the Poles. Or the Jews. Or the blacks. Or the Chicanos. I mean, we have an amalgam."
