    • Dr. Fleiss: I've done hundreds of circumcisions and I regret every one.

    • Penn: [on smegma] If you don't like that kinda...collection hanging off your d*nger, if it's not the kinda lubrication you want, you just...wash it off with a little soap and water. We're in AMERICA, not some gutter on the poor side of Calcutta! We don't have to wash our c*cks with sand...unless we wanna! Today's soap is soft, it fights bacteria, and smells like spring rain in Ireland...or so we're told. And...how tough do you think it is to get a kid to rub his c*ck in the shower?

    • Griffiths: [on restoring foreskin] It's not painful, I assure you! It's just fine. It looks horrible, huh? Penn: No, just sexy! Hell, hang one on each b*ll and you get one of these great Newtonian motion toys!

    • Penn: So why the F*CK are doctors and hospitals still encouraging circumcisions? Well, a foreskin is cut off...once every 26 seconds. At an average cost of 400 dollars, circumcision is a 400 million dollar a year industry.

    • Penn: We're using d*ck skin for cosmetics? That is so f*cking sexy! It's weird...but it is sexy...but...it's weird...but sexy...but weird...but...okay, I rub my d*ck on your face and all the wrinkles disappear. I like that.

    Trivia (2)

    • Jokes you might've missed: As Penn delivers the final monologue, Teller throws a Bible offscreen that ends up impaled on the bull's horn. Near the end of the monologue, he takes the Bible and positions it in front of his pants while a zipping sound is heard...

    • First episode to utilize the prop of a fake black bull with red horns. The prop would be reused at during many future episodes.
