    • Dr. Garfinkel: The person who says to themselves "I hate myself and my life, and when I have this plastic surgery, that's all gonna change", THAT person, has a problem.

    • Dr. Schneider: Nature makes a lot of things that are, frankly, very dangerous. Nature makes arsenic, nature makes lead. Nature makes lots of materials that are dangerous, toxic, and can kill you! Just because nature makes something doesn't mean you should take it!

    • Dr. Kennedy: Okay, so if some scientist say "maybe growth hormone is dangerous to human health", then they have some explaining to do. What's nature doing making it in the first place? Dr. Schneider: That is absolute nonsense! I cannot believe he would say such a stupid thing.

    • Dr. Olshansky: You probably will experience an improvement in your mental acuity, in your skin elasticity, perhaps even in your sexual function as a result of the use of growth hormone. Penn: HOLD ON! Name of the show is "Bullsh**!"....where's the bullsh**? Dr. Olshansky: Reintroducing growth hormone into older individuals might actually shorten their lives. Penn: Well if that's true, that's a bingo.

    • Penn: [on Cindy Jackson] There are a lot of ways you can go with this body modification stuff. Cindy wants to look like...Barbie. Most people think that's a little odd, but, it's just fine, it's her f*cking money, and it's her body. Now, our good friend, Enigma [Teller pulls him out from behind Penn], decided he wanted to little like Barbie as possible. It was a little less painful and less expensive than Cindy's, but it's the same idea. Enigma's makeup is tattooed on, just like Cindy's. His horns are silicone...just like Cindy's. Most people are cool with ear piercings and tattoos. It's your money and your body. Decide how you want to look.
