Team McCann One - liners with references

Post by tigger on 24.09.12 14:09

Aiyoyo suggested we start a topic in one liners.

Maybe we should start a "quotes" thread (keeping each quote to a *one liner* for easy reference) that Kate Gerry & their family members and Mitchell ever said.

So please with references - there are so many of these instances!

Such as the priceless one below:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMp_Evmv4d4

At 2.28 minutes into the video Gerry says that the Judiciary having reviewed all the evidence have said that there is no evidence that Madeleine is dead and there's no evidence to implicate us in her death.

and the next one:

From the Daily Telegraph 10/9/07:
Before she became a suspect Kate said "The police don't want a murder in Portugal and all the publicity about them not having paedophile laws here, so they're blaming us."

Thanks CF. I was just looking to find only TM quotes which make you go !!!?? plus the references, because one always gets challenged on that.

But after a quick trawl in the banner topic:
I know this was a headline in one of the tabloids:

Gerry McCann: "Find the body and prove we killed her".

Here's a few from Kate's book...

"We Will do EVERYTHING to find you, sweetheart. May God, Mary and the Angels protect you
until that time".
(Angels? Already in 'Heaven'?!)

"We are now entering fantasy land"
(The story certainly is one big fantasy)

"These dogs had never been used in Portugal before, and he (Ricardo Paiva) knew little more
about them, either, than I did".
(Yes Kate, they're very unreliable, specifically in Portugal!)


"Being Clarence, he rolled up his sleeves and started immediately. We were absolutely delighted - as, incidentally, were the many old ladies who wrote to tell us that they were sleeping much better since the return of that nice 'Mr Mitchell'.
(Yeah, I bet 'many old ladies' have written to you Kate, all telling you that they are now sleeping wonderfully at night, content that the world is a much safer place now that dear Clarence McCspinmeister was back on the scene. What a load of cobblers!)

'It was a collective mistake'. Gerry McCann in the Swedish TV interview March 2012.

(a hint to the Tapas? All in it together? Two of them at least had baby monitors - so why didn't the McCanns? )

"It seems like a disaster that we've got this huge donated fund
and now we're not allowed to use it for legal costs because we're
under suspicion," said Gerry.

Reference - Daily Mail 9 Sept 2007
No comment needed........




"I wish I could roll back time and go back to the day before Madeleine
was abducted. I would slow down time. I would get a really good look
around and have a really good think. And I'd think: Where are you? Who
are you? Who is secretly watching my family? Because someone was
watching my family very, very carefully. And taking notes."


Reference - Kate McCann in her work of fiction.


Why does she want to go back to the day before the abduction, why not that Thursday morning when they all got up, or indeed why not go back to the day they made the decision to go on that holiday and wish to change the decision to go ? (Or Kate, you could always go back to the day you arrived in PDL and decide to do what everybody else does on a family holiday - stay with their children).

For the last quote there from the book, I never noticed it like that, good point ! If it was me , I would deff want to go back in time, but to the night she disappered and wiching I had never left her, because then she would not been abducted... Weird wanting to go back to the day before to see who is secretly wathcing your family- Makes really no sence when thinking about it...You want to go back to change the outcome, and its really just only one thing here (if abducted) that could change what happened, and that was not to leave them alone, simple as that... Sorry if I went a little OT now, I understand this thread to only bee quotes with refferences, not for discussing them along the way or? :)

[....] at 2.14 Gerry makes the point that 'the searches were directed at finding a missing body' [...]

(Not: directed at finding a body, but a missing body - which implies a body which was missing from where it was supposed to be)

Firstly, thanks for starting this thread.

Back to topic -
Isn't that just a dead giveaway? You would have thought a normal parent would say
"...the searches were directed at finding a missing *child*, and not a *body*. The latter implies finding the *dead* as in *remains*.
This should really be a one-liner for the forensics linguistic thread.

And, then...this --

We Will do EVERYTHING to find you, sweetheart. May God, Mary and the Angels protect you
until that time".


What time? Strange thing to say, NO?

A dead giveaway indeed. Freud would have a fieldday with these one-liners and other hick-up and slips ...

A Freudian slip is where you want to say one thing and you say your mother.

I find this a to be a real red flag if ever there was one. On the surface what Gerry said sounds 'odd' to put it mildly anyway but I also find it more than that due to something a friend once told me.
This friend volunteered for some time as a counsellor to the bereaved for a well known agency. She was fully qualified for this role and had trained as such whilst she worked as a nurse. She once told me that the hardest cases were, naturally, bereaved parents. The thing that stuck in my mind was that she said that the worst thing anyone could ever say to a bereaved parent was " well at least you have your other children". By implication she was saying that to parents all their children are equally precious, losing one is as bad as losing all of them. There isn't anything worse.
Now, I don't have kids (sadly) but I can imagine this is entirely how you would feel as a parent simply 'losing' one child, no matter in what circumstances.
This is why this sticks out for me...its just not right

Yes Springersarefab, it is similar to saying we will just have to have another child now. You cannot replace your lost child, he is an individual.

If your handbag is robbed and found later with all contents except cash still intact, one might say it could have been worse they could have taken everything in the bag.

I wonder do the McCanns ever sit down and listen to what they have said in the past. Perhaps if they did, they might actually start to see why there are people who find what they say unbelievable.

OT it reminds me of someone, long long time ago, trying to explain to me what a Freudian slip of the tongue is and gave an example: A man, who fancies his neighbour, has invited her to come over in the afternoon for a drink. She arrives at the moment he's carrying a bin bag out onto the street and says to her: "Do go in and lay down. I'll be with you in a minute."

Not strictly a one-liner, but lifted from an earlier post:
From the book:

"These dogs had never been used in Portugal before, and he (Ricardo Paiva) knew little more
about them, either, than I did".
unquote

On the face of it it looks like a stupid statement, but linking Portugal, PJ ignorance and 'never been used' - creates exactly the impression desired by TM.

My car seems to work fine in different countries and although I can't speak for dogs, my cats were functioning brilliantly in southern France.
