Quotes

Twist Jackson: You know what I like about a sloppy joe? It's not the onions or the Worcester sauce or even that little bit of soda they mix in there. It's not about the dried honey, mustard or honey mustard. It's the fact that you can sit there and think about the last twenty-four hours and what you've accomplished and not worry about the negative. You ever seen "The Big Lebowski"? It's like that. I could have a nuclear warhead shoved up my ass and I wouldn't give a damn, all because of this little sandwich.
