[about the organ donor card people are supposed to carry in their wallet]
Do you honestly believe that if a paramedic finds that card on you in an automobile accident, he's going to try and save your life? Bullshit, he's looking for parts, man!
Absolutely! "Look, Dan, here's that lower intestine we've been looking for! Never mind the oxygen, this man's a donor!"

While the material is better than pretty much any other living comedian (though Eddie Izzard comes mighty close), George's delivery is weaker than usual.
It's interesting that this show was packaged with the far superior Jammin' in New York. You can see he was working on new material in 1990 that became far more refined by the 1992 show. Still, I'd recommend it for any Carlin fan.
My favorite part was the bit about talking loudly in a party when everyone is suddenly silent. I shan't repeat the punchline here, cuz then I'd have to click the "If you have a spoiler..." box and ruin a great joke.
