    • Mark: I really hit rock bottom that night. And, I mean, I literally fell to the bottom of a pit and hit a rock. I remember laying there thinking "There's probably a good reason why I'm down here...and single." And then I started thinking "I need morphine"

    • Leslie: (About April's relationship) The thing about youth culture is I don't understand it.

    • Leslie: (about the penguins) Ooh, Six Flags! I should take them on a water slide, but they might die. But it would be so cute!

    • April: This is my boyfriend Derek, and this is Derek's boyfriend Ben.
      Leslie: Hey! Oh.. wait, what's the situation?
      April: What do you mean?
      Leslie: How does this work?
      April: Derek is gay, but he's straight for me, but he's gay for Ben, and Ben is really gay for Derek, and I hate Ben.
      Derek: It's not really complicated.

    • Leslie: Chimpanzees are very smart, so we had them graduate from college. And they like to fling their feces, so we were hoping they would fling their hats, but they...they flung their feces.

    • Boy: Are they making babies?
      Zookeeper: Not those two. Those are both boy penguins.
      Leslie: I'm sorry?
