“Because it was a slope that we went down. You couldn’t just drive the van back down the hill. We’re sitting down, and someone said, ‘Well, what are we going to do now…?’
“And then one of us, I can’t remember which one, said, ‘Something’s gonna happen,’ and it was like, ‘Wow, that’s the greatest quote ever!
“Because in life, when you face these crazy things, something is going to happen, and that always seemed to console us.
“And I’ve said to quite a few people since then, when you’re in your darkest times, just remember this incredibly clever Beatles quote, ‘Something’s going to happen.'”
