“Curing AIDS? Shit, that’s like Cadillac making a car that lasts for 50 years. And you know they can do it, but they ain’t going to do nothing that fucking dumb. Shit, they got metal on the Space Shuttle that can go around the Moon and withstand  temperatures of up to 20,000 degrees, you mean to tell me you don’t think they can make an El Dorado with a fuckin’ bumper that don’t fall off?”

- Chris Rock, “Bigger and Blacker” (1999)

Chris Rock talking about the last White House Party:

You’re sitting around, you’re meeting people, and you mingle. First you mingle. And at one point, it’s me and Michelle Obama just talking. I’m not really supposed to be alone with Michelle Obama. That’s not really my lane. I don’t know how to talk politics And, you know, Michelle Obama’s like, “I don’t know what we’re gonna do. The country,” and you know we’re talking about election and stuff. “I don’t know. I don’t know what’s gonna happen. This is such a crazy time.”

And I go, “You’ll be a’ight.”
