Romney reminded a group of seniors in New Hampshire of their impending mortality:
"Anybody here over 100 years old?" Romney asked.
"Not yet, but we're getting there, right? We're on our way," continued Romney.
"We're hopefully going to get there soon."
"Well, not so soon. We hope to get there safe and sound."
At a town hall in Kalamazoo, Michigan:
"I know China is headed to the moon. They’re planning on going to the moon, and some people say, ‘Oh, we’ve got to get to the moon, we’ve got to get there in a hurry to prove we can get there before China.’ It’s like, guys, we were there a long time ago, all right? And when you get there would you bring back some of the stuff we left?"
Getting punny at a diner in Manchester, New Hampshire:
I saw a young man over there with Eggs Benedict. He had the Eggs Benedict with a hollandaise sauce and the eggs, there. And I was going to suggest to you that you serve your eggs with hollandaise sauce and hubcaps. Because there's no plates like chrome for the hollandaise!
Romney explains his father George's choice of gravesite in Michigan:
"We didn't live in Brighton. It's like, how did you pick Brighton, Dad? 'Well -- best price I could find in the whole state.' So if you're looking for the best deal on a gravesite, check Brighton. They've got a good spot -- you're near the former governor and the former first lady!"
After saying that unlike Rick Santorum, "I’m not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support":
Romney later told a reporter that he was not going to set his hair ablaze no matter “how hard you ask.”
“It would be a big fire, I assure you,” he added.
