SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES – Europe surged into a dominant lead over the United States in the 42nd edition of the Ryder Cup on Saturday.

AFP Sport picks out 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.”

-- Tommy 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.”

-- Francesco 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

“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.”
