“It’s always the dad that’s f**king the family up. It’s very rare it’s the mom. I don’t mean to pick on fathers, I’m just saying, you’re the one handing out the issues. It’s usually the dad.

It’s always the dad.” — Bret Ernst on Principal’s Office

Don’t beat your kids. Talk to them. Give them a time out.’ Beat the motherf**kers., that’s what I’m trying to tell you.” — Russell Peters on Outsourced
