    • Andy Rooney: They put a computer on the set and they pretend I'm using it. I don't know how to use a computer, all I know about is what to do with a pencil. Pencils are the best!

    • Ronnie Rooney: Why do they take old people to the theatre, when we just want to die?

    • [holding up a pair of tweezers] Chanel Monticello: You can not take these pilot killers on a plane! You could kill a pilot with these! You could disable a stewardess with these. [the passenger holds up a pair of high heeled shoes] Chanel Monticello: That's okay, that's a shoe. [holding the tweezers up] This could kill someone, that's just a shoe.
