-- “Man, everything sucks. My job, my girl, my city. And who’s gonna save the day? The Democrats? The Republicans? Donald Trump? They're all a shower of dicks who think we’re all idiots. And you know what? We are idiots. Who else but an idiot would put up with all this sub-mental, rip-off bullshine? I swear, I can’t take it no more. It’s Glock-22 time.”

-- “Chill, son. You need to let that shit loose by sliding over to the museum and soak up some Mondrian and Miro. Or school up on an instrument like the trumpet. Get your girl; waltz her honey ass to a dance class. And when all else fails, channel your hang-up’s and screw-up’s into a play, off-Broadway style. Don’t look back in anger, man. Know’m saying? Get your art-on.”
