WHAT THEY SAID ON DAY 35 OF THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN

THE BEST LINE

"I wish I got that reception in Kooyong."

- Josh Frydenberg to a cheering crowd at the Liberals' official campaign launch in Brisbane.

SCOTT MORRISON

"I can tell you from the bottom of my heart ... nothing fires up my heart more than young people getting in jobs."

- On reducing unemployment.

"I had one focus as your prime minister. Save the country."

- On managing the pandemic.

ANTHONY ALBANESE

"If this government is a car, it's been stalled for a long, long period of time ... it's out of fuel and the wheels are falling off."

- On Scott Morrison comparing himself to a car

"I will always back Queensland, but I have a declaration to make. I will always back Queensland 365 days a year and 362 nights a year."

- On supporting Queensland at any time other than during State of Origin.

THE SUPPORT CAST

"If you go to Queensland, you know I love dams."

- Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce.

" Anthony Albanese says, he is eminently qualified to be prime minister because he was acting prime minister for, wait for it, all of 48 hours. Now, I never thought I would ever say it, let alone at a Liberal Party meeting, but thank you, Kevin Rudd, for making it only 48 hours."

- Josh Frydenberg.

"Speaking the truth on national security and really being open and honest with the Australian public is the only answer."

- Defence Minister Peter Dutton on the government's national security rhetoric.

"The policy change announced by the prime minister to allow people to access their superannuation for housing deposits amounts to no more than another frontal assault by the Liberal Party on the superannuation system."

- Former Labor prime minister Paul Keating.

REAL PEOPLE

"I've been a part of the Transport Workers' Union all my life and I just can't get myself to vote for Albanese."

- Brisbane resident.
