  • "Eu me lembro de um dia em que eu estava vindo pra casa da escola. Eu-- bem, eu achava que era da escola. Mais tarde eu percebi que estava trabalhando em uma fábrica por dois dias. Eu ficava me perguntando, porque era sempre quente e todo mundo era mais velho que eu. Mas, hum, o que eu sabia?"

  • "Eu acho que a coisa difícil sobre esse trabalho [stand-up] — Quero dizer, eu acho que a parte ótima desse trabalho — mas viajar é, você sabe, porque — porque eu estou bem longe de casa por um bom tempo e dessa vez há três semanas e meia sem ir pra casa, e isso é difícil. Estar longe há mais de três semanas e meia, porque eu tenho que perguntar aos meus amigos 'Você se importaria de ir pra a casa e aguar as plantas, ligar as luzes, fazer com que pareça a casa de alguém e verificar se o brinquedo em cima do berço está emaranhado, ou o bebê vai ficar entediado."
- Taste This
  • "Você não detesta quando as pessoas se atrasam para o trabalho e eles sempre tem as piores desculpas? 'Ah, desculpe, estou atrasado. Tráfego." "Tráfego, han? Como você acha que cheguei aqui; de helicóptero?"
- Here and Now
  • "Quero ter um filho, mas também quero uma TV sem tubo. Nem por isso quero ver uma TV saindo de dentro de mim."

  • With all of our differences, we [members of the audience] all have one thing in common, we’re all gay.

We’re not going to understand a word of this.” Seriously, though, if you're here you're probably gay. I mean, you have tendencies, you've thought about it. Now there are people [in audience] going “I have thought about it. Does that mean I'm gay? I'm not gay. Is that how they get us?”
