I got nothing on the original. That's way awesome.
My answer is kinda different. Although I have had numerous people say very nice things, I don't remember them. What I really remember is how people act... when they eat my q. I don't like being around people when they eat any of my food actually. I like being off to the side where they think I am not around looking. That is when you get a honest reaction, when they think no one is looking. When body motions get dramatic, eye rollings, head shaking... when wives start hitting their husbands in the shoulder or gut.... that's when I know I've hit a home run. That has actually happend more than a handful of times. A "why can't you make ribs this good" reaction. Those are my favorite "compliments".
