WHAT THEY SAID ON DAY 27 OF THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN

THE BEST LINE

"What he doesn't seem to get is that the reason Australians could not imagine going to Scott Morrison the dentist has nothing to do with his questionable likeability ratings. It's because we're all pretty sure he take out the wrong tooth"

- Mark Butler on Scott Morrison's "you don't need to like your dentist" analogy.

SCOTT MORRISON

"How many of you have played video games with your kids? And you know, you've got to work out what sort of car they drive."

- On selecting his candidate for the WA seat of Pearce, Linda Aitken.

"I know what I like and so do the Australian people."

- When asked on tasting notes while drinking red wine at a Perth winery.

ANTHONY ALBANESE

"What does it take to give some of these numpties a wake-up call to tell them climate change is right here, right now."

- On the Liberals' climate change record.

" I don't know what it's based on, it's certainly not based upon comments from the shadow finance minister, or the shadow treasurer."

- On a report in The Australian that Labor's costings would be $10 billion above the government's forecasts.

"It's not my job is what he says, while I want the job and I want to do the job."

- Contrasting himself with Scott Morrison.

THE SUPPORT CAST

"He says you should think about him the same way you think about your dentist because if that image of him washing that woman's here wasn't already enough to put you off your cornflakes, imagine his head in your mouth."

- Mark Butler on Scott Morrison's dentist analogy.

"Ensuring artists receive a living wage will bring stability to a sector that has been left behind by the Morrison government. The arts are a core part of Australian culture and contribute so much to our economy."

- Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young.

REAL PEOPLE

"That Liberal fellow seems sure of himself."

- Launceston local.

"C'mon go past, bugger off."

- Stall owner as Anthony Albanese toured a Mother's Day market in Launceston with a media pack.
