"My grandpa gave me three newly minted state quarters, and said that, in his day, those quarters could buy him anything he could want to eat. I said that in his day those quarters would have gotten him arrested for spending money from the future."

Kumail Nanjiani

Brent Weinbach
"Women are from Venus. Men are from Pagina."

Aziz Ansari
"Occasionally I get recognized from TV. Once, a guy said something but I had my headphones on, so I just went, 'Cool, glad you like the show.' Right after, I realized he hadn’t said anything about the show. He went, 'Hey, your fly is down.' And I’d said, 'Cool, glad you like the show.' Glad you like seeing my dick pop out of my pants."
