So Runners new screen name (referring to Drip Drop) made me think...what are some other "great" moments regarding to the band's recording sessions. Right now I can think of these:
-Brian telling Al how to sing in "I Know there's an Answer" (BUT WHAT CANN YOU TELLLL THEM)
-Murray at the Rhonda session ("I'm a Genius too you know")
-Rollin' Up to Heaven (The whole thing)

Anyone else got anymore?

Brian asking, "Can you feel the acid yet?"

Brian asking Dennis for hash joints.

"Dance, Dance, Dance" tracking session with Glen Campbell. After Glen makes a few mistakes he says, "Damn it to Hell!" Another musician at the session says, "Brian, should we call Jerry Cole?"  Glen says, "What do you want to call him?"

The entire "Dance, Dance, Dance" vocal session(s).

The Salt Lake City tracking session with Carol Kaye.

Nick Venet telling David he looks like Jesus with the beard.

Chuck Britz asking if Dennis was yelling "Go!" too loud at the intro to Little Honda and Dennis doing it again anyway.

David Wright booting two ground balls and going 0 for 4 at the plate.

.......to name just a few.

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

Brian telling the group to smile during a smiley session is fun, his breaking up during the tracking that day is funny too.

Yeah I just listened to that, it was Take 6, pretty funny.

I recall a Smile tracking session (UM17) where Brian says the name of the song is "The Old Master Painter" and there is a muffled response
then Carol asks what did he say and next everybody is laughing out loud -- I think I know the gist of the joke, anybody know who made it?

Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

Brian's airplane sounds on Sail Plane Song.
TWO WORDS: MY SOLUTION
When we FINALLY found out what that noise was on Wake The World (first thought to be a music stand…then we found out it was Brian using the window shades for a sound effect.

i do like cassius 'Love' vrs sonny 'Wilson'......... kind of ironic that they share a similar feud in real life...

this probably falls into another category, in the imagination video, Brian is laying down all parts to 'cal girls'....

I think its joe Thomas who says 'brian, you sound just like the beach boys'......brian says 'I know'....... So Brian!

Actually, Dick Rising, according to all who knew him at Capitol Records and in his personal life, was very well liked. He was murdered in his own apartment in Hollywood by a couple of low-life punks in 1974. He worked at MGM and Capitol for 23 years as an A&R and promotions man, and had a wife and two daughters.

Cavanagh (1993, p. 55) includes a transcript of the Prayer session, citing Al as the person responding to Brian's question.

I think we're very lucky that stuff wasn't cut out. I guess since it's from Smile Mike can now justify it as an 'acid album' and say "see? what did I tell ya!"

After all these years I never knew that.  It seemed so much in the line of their "Hawthorne" humor.

Okay -- the line in "Drive-in", "Remember only you can prevent forest fires."  As I recall back in the day Smokey the Bear's tag line was invoked to imply that guys should use "rubbers" or bear  the consequences.  So to speak.

I like Brian's line at the I Wanna Be Around session on the box set. The band is playing some jazz music and at the end, Brian jokingly says, "All right, you got that out of your systems now?" and everyone laughs.
