“This guy is crazy homophobic. Last summer, we go dirt-bike riding, just the two of us. We’re out in the desert, we’re tearing it up, we’re having a great time. This guy crashes. He’s laying there and he’s bleeding and dying and like, ‘Help me!’ I ride up on my bike, and I’m like, ‘Dude, jump on my bike. I’ll take you to the hospital.’ He says this to me: ‘I ain’t going nuts to butts with you.’ I’m like, ‘Nuts to butts? Who says this? Get on the bike, dude. You are dying!’ He says, ‘No way! Somebody might see us.’ ‘Yeah, like a doctor. Let’s go!’” — Dean Delray at the Laugh Factory

“I’m not knocking what my mom had to do to get to America. F**k it. That was her hustle. God bless you, Mom. You hooked up with a soldier and had a kid in America. She did what she had to do.
