(Newser) – Everyone has been wondering what Donald Trump would say tonight. They were probably referring to lines like these, culled from Time, Politico, and ABC:

  1. "I will not make the pledge at this time." When all the candidates were asked if they would pledge to support the eventual GOP nominee and not stage a third-party run.
  2. "Only Rosie O’Donnell." When Megyn Kelly brought up Trump having called women he doesn't like "fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals." (O'Donnell responded.)
  3. "This was not a subject that was on anybody’s mind until I brought it up at my announcement." When discussing illegal immigration.

  1. "And I don't mind having a big beautiful door in that wall so that people can come into this country legally." When discussing the criminals that he says are pouring across the border.
  2. "Why should they when the stupid leaders of the United States will do it for ‘em, and that’s happening, whether you like it or not?" When talking about how the Mexican government doesn't want to take care of its criminals.
  3. "Hillary Clinton, I said be at my wedding, and she came to my wedding." On what he got from Hillary Clinton in exchange for donating to her foundation.
  4. "These lenders aren’t babies. These are total killers." When asked about his bankruptcies.
  5. "Virtually every person that you read about on the front page of the business section [takes advantage of bankruptcy laws]." More on his finances.
  6. "Reporters ... They're a very dishonest lot, generally speaking, in the world of politics." When talking about ... reporters.
  7. "We don't win anymore. ... We can't do anything right." Said during his closing statement.
