YOU DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE YET, DO YOU?!.... YOU HAVEN'T SHOVED A CHAINSAW UP MY ASS YET!.... MY HEAD'S STILL ON MY TORSO!!.... I'M GLAD YOU FUCKERS CAN HANDLE YOUR HIGH!“

River come, So I can sing you to sleep.“

'Cause in your head you're going "I'm gonna yell out your wife is your beard and they'll laugh like they laughed at the rock guy!" And you yelled it out, you got it out there, you had the guts to do it and shit, and then I even echoed it for you just in case the cheap seats didn't hear it, and there was fucking crickets, sir.“

„What could be going so wrong that they need to check on you that often....'My bra's in my ass!!'....'Rachel' (mouths pointing to her ass 'My bra's in my ass' and again 'My bra's in my ass' shakes head no and air spells out A-S-S and then motions her to come here). I'd like to see how far they'd go to help you when you tell them your bra's in your ass.' 'Oh my, it's in the ass... do you need a different size or color? I don't know what to do about the bra in the ass. I'll get the manager I don't know.“

„I believe that the way in which we should truly live is we should think about what we're going to do, and then not do it. Your boss comes in on Monday and goes, "Hey! You're my go-to guy — I need a report by Friday." You go, "I'll get right on it, chief!" And then you head back to your desk and you put your feet up and you spend the week thinking about it. And then he comes in on Friday and goes, "Where's my report?" And you say, with a big grin on your face, "I didn't do it!" And he goes, "Why not?" and then you say, "Because I didn't want to disappoint you!"“
— Lewis Black American stand-up comedian, author, playwright, social critic and actor 1948
„I'm confused about who the news belongs to. I always have it in my head that if your name's in the news, then the news should be paying you. Because it's your news and they're taking it and selling it as their product. But then they always say that they're helping you, and that's true too, but still, if people didn't give the news their news, and if everybody kept their news to themselves, the news wouldn't have any news. So I guess you should pay each other. But I haven't figured it out fully yet.“
— Andy Warhol American artist 1928 - 1987
Ch. 5: Fame
„"You disappear so completely into your head sometimes. I wish I could follow you."
You do. You live in my head all the time.“

„Mr. Britton, don't be a wise guy, because I'm gonna mop up the floor with you if you're a wise guy to me. This is my playpen, not yours.“
— Judith Sheindlin American lawyer, judge, television personality, and author 1942
„You've got a degree in philosophy,
So you think you're cleverer than me.
But I'm not just some drama queen,
Cos it's where you're at not where you've been.
So what do you expect from me,
To hold your head above the sea?
And there are you even though you're bigger,
Cos don't you know you crush my tiny figure?
And anyway we're still so young
And this isn't yet the day.
I can't help you if you won't help yourself.“
— Amy Winehouse English singer and songwriter 1983 - 2011
