Ben Stone: Were you giving butterfly kisses or something?

Jay: Um, I farted on Jason's pillow as a practical joke. He farted on Jonah's, thinking it was mine, and then eventually pinkeyed my pillow. I'm not proud any of this, but I think we're all forgiven each other. Um, but we can't go anywhere.
Pete: You can get pinkeye from farting in a pillow?

Ronnie: I'd love to see that photo of that gout foot.
Graham Parker: A couple of bunions as well.
Ronnie: Fuck.

Ronnie: [Referring to Graham Parker video they are viewing] What are you doing?
Cat: I'm contextualizing him as one of the great figures in rock history.
Ronnie: You can't show him in his prime in '77 and then jump straight to him as he is now. It's terrifying. You have to reverse it. You have got to show him as he is now, very briefly, and then show him in 1977. You have got to Benjamin Button it.
Cat: I don't know what you're talking about. All rock stars are older now. Steven Tyler, David Bowie, Mick Jagger...
Pete: Paul McCartney.
Ronnie: Okay, stop it. Everybody that you are mentioning looks like an old woman now. You're just mentioning a bunch of Jessica Tandys. Keith Richards gets away with it, but that's because Keith Richards looked 70 when he was 40. And now that he's 70 he looks 69. He's regenerating.

Ronnie: That's not even the order that happens in!
