“Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone.” Burgess

“Sometimes when I feel like killing someone, I do a little trick to calm myself down. I’ll go over to the person’s house and ring the doorbell. When the person comes to the door, I’m gone, but you know what I’ve left on the porch? A jack-o-lantern with a knife stuck in the side of it’s head with a note that says "You.” After that I usually feel a lot better, and no harm done.“ Handey

“I think we can all agree that sleeping around is a great way to meet people.” Handler

"There’s high, and there’s high, and to get really high - I mean so high that you can walk on the water, that high-that’s where I’m going.” Harrison

“America is a land where a citizen will cross the ocean to fight for Democracy and won’t cross the street to vote in a national election.” Vaughan

“There comes a time when you look into the mirror and you realize that what you see is all that you will ever be. And then you accept it. Or you kill yourself. Or you stop looking in mirrors.” Williams
