** Paul told the story of how he and John were once having a bitter argument about something, which had got the point of name-calling -- and then John paused, lowered his glasses, looked at Paul over the top of them and said [[NoHeroToHisValet "It's only me, you know."]]

** After finishing the second number, "I Wanna Be Your Man," Ringo and Paul ended the evening with a classic Beatles bow. The crowd went nuts. The whole thing is just so gratifying when you consider how much of a ButtMonkey Ringo is portrayed as by a lot of people when he really seems to be a smart, kind, professional man. Stuff like this helps remind people about how The Beatles couldn't function without all four members bringing their A-game, and seeing this outpouring of respect from Ringo's peers is really sweet. Helps that Paul looks thrilled for his friend and former bandmate the whole time.

* Ringo was the last of the Beatles to be inducted as a solo artist in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (John got in in 1994, Paul in 1999, and George in 2004), receiving the Award for Musical Excellence. [[note]] Formerly known as the Sideman Award. Make of that what you will...[[/note]] Paul inducted him, and the famous final jam (featuring the likes of Music/GreenDay, Music/MileyCyrus, Music/DaveGrohl, Music/JoanJett, Music/PattiSmith, [[Music/ZacBrownBand Zac Brown]], [[Music/YeahYeahYeahs Karen O]], Music/Bill Withers, Music/StevieWonder, Music/{{Beck}}, and more and more and more...) was everyone singing "With a Little Help from My Friends."

* "Dear Prudence" was written for a real girl (Mia Farrow's sister), because John was saddened by how reserved and shy she was. That's right. One of the biggest musicians of all time took the time to write a beautiful ballad just to get a girl he had just met to cheer up. If the freaking Beatles write a song just for you to get you to cheer up and you don't feel better, there's no hope for you.

She locked herself in her hut and refused to come out or speak to anyone until John was saddened by how reserved and shy she was. That's right.

** At concerts, Ringo used to announce that he was about to sing by saying, "[[SelfDeprecation Here he is, all nervous and out-of-tune...Ringo]]!" (TruthInTelevision--stage fright was, and continues to be, a huge problem for him.) So when John and Paul wrote a song around the concept of themselves as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, ''they made Ringo the lead singer''--and wrote him some lyrics in which he apologizes for possibly singing off-key. Then he does a call-and-response thing with the others about how much they all need each other. ''Aww.''

* "Free as a Bird". Ringo, George and Paul got together to record incidental music for the Anthology Project, but realized that they wanted to record some new songs instead. Only problem? No John. At this point they could have either written something without him or abandoned the idea of a new song altogether. Instead, Paul asked Yoko if she could give them any demo tapes of John that they could finish. It should be noted that the remaining Beatles had to fill in a gap where John hadn't finished the lyrics and [[TearJerker made all of us weep]] by going with the following:
