Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines - Europe surged into a dominant lead over the United States in the 42nd edition of the Ryder Cup on Saturday.

A look at some of the best quotes from a gripping second day in which the Europeans finished with a 10-6 advantage:

"He's one of my best friends, not just on Tour but in life."

- Fleetwood continues his week-long bromance with Molinari. They became the first pair to take four wins from as many matches since 1979

"We came here to do a job, and it wasn't to go in the records books or anything like that, it's about the team, it's about getting to 14 1/2."

- Molinari isn't getting ahead of himself going into the final day

"About the piece of history together, it's very special."

- Fleetwood is a happy man too. He and Italian Molinari can become Europe's first-ever player to claim five points in Sunday's singles

"Just pretty pissed off, the fact that I lost three matches, and didn't feel like I played poorly."

- A despondent Tiger Woods after being beaten by Fleetwood and Molinari in all three of his matches

"All we want to do now is get back to the team room and see that Liverpool have equalised."

- European captain Thomas Bjorn has football on his mind after another gripping day of golf

"I was emotional earlier. I've always been a bit that way. I cry in movies, as well. Hey, not embarrassed. I care about it. It means an awful lot to me."

- Paul Casey shed a tear after claiming his first Ryder Cup win since 2006

"It's usually movies, usually when I'm sitting there watching with my kids and they turn around and it's usually a cartoon or something, Disney; any good character gets killed or something, gets squashed, kills me."

- Casey expands on his more difficult moments watching films

"They had a six-point lead, and now it's four, so we are carrying that as a little bit of momentum I guess. Early wins tomorrow go a long way."

- Jordan Spieth talks up the Americans' chances of a famous fightback

"I just repeated myself, like a Tiger answer."

- US captain Jim Furyk is still in a light-hearted enough mood to poke fun at Woods in his press conference

"I remember every damn word."

- Furyk hasn't forgotten then-skipper Ben Crenshaw's speech before the American fightback from 10-6 down at Brookline in 1999

"I think it might be our turn to flip it around on them."

- Dustin Johnson is hoping that the US can emulate Europe's comeback in the 'Miracle at Medinah' in 2012

"That might be in the record books to halve with a 6 on a par 3."

- Bubba Watson was right. The half on the second hole between him and Webb Simpson and Sergio Garcia and Alex Noren was the first-ever to be made in triple bogeys
