"I was out there with Edge and Randy. It was a 2 segment match and at some point during the match Randy rolls out of the ring. I go over to him and check on him and he proceeds to tell me that his shoulder is out and he canít get it back in or move it. So, I tell him to stand up against the ring post, he holds on to his dangling arm, and I shoved his shoulder up against the ring post, heard a click, and it went back in. I told him he was all set and to get back in there and help my dude. His reaction was half hot and half relieved and half still not even clear as to what was going on (I was never good at fractions)." - Lita on helping Randy Orton through an injury

"We are thinking of making you guys the new 'Midnight Express. I just went, 'Oh, no. Anything new, whatever it is, it's not going to work.' That (idea) was doomed for failure right away. What are you going to say? That's brutal… a horrible idea, and I know Sean (Morley) felt the same way. We were like, this is not good, but we'll make it work and be a kick-ass tag team no matter what they call us; we'll do good with this."

"Then finally when I signed my deal deal, my very first deal, they also paid all of my college fees as a bonus. I think I owed like 40 grand, which they didn't have to do, I always felt was very, very cool of JR to do. He was like we're going to take care of your college, by the way. I was like oh, because that had been hanging over my head while I had been trying to just get somewhere and make it. I was like oh, man. I got this 40 grand that's over my head and I'm making 50 bucks on this show. Cool, now I'm making 210, but that's not going to chip away at 40 grand. So they took care of that when I signed my deal."

"In the past I've had many partners and I'm trying eventually to get to that elusive 12-championship reign that Hall of Famer Edge had. That statistic alone makes me feel really good about my tag and singles career that I'm able to do this and who knows how long it's gonna last with my brother Goldust and where it's gonna end up, but it certainly is a wonderful spotlight for him and I. We've had a lot of luck with the matches we've been putting on as of late. And that's a credit to those guys too, the Usos like you mentioned, to be the fundamental cornerstone match of a pay-per-view like Survivor Series, to have the elimination match. I feel strongly that we can go in and steal the show away from these other matches, these other great matches."

"And then Edge I will always respect. He showed me psychology, how to work in the ring, helped with my promos, and how to work with the cameras.Visit Wrestling Inc. He took me under his wing and made me feel like I was his partner. He really built my confidence and made me believe that whatever I did out there would be great. He really believed in me and I think that's why we got to stay together for so long."
