  • Yup. On a daily basis, I consume enough drugs to sedate Manhattan, Long Island, and Queens for a month.
  • I take Quaaludes 10 to 15 times a day for my “back pain,” Adderall to stay focused, Xanax to take the edge off, pot to mellow me out, cocaine to wake me back up again, and morphine, well, because it’s awesome.

  • Let me tell you something. There’s no nobility in poverty. I’ve been a poor man, and I’ve been a rich man. And I choose rich every fucking time.
  • This right here is the land of opportunity. This is America. This is my home! The show goes on! [quoting from Norma Rae] They’re gonna need to send in the National Guard to take me out, cos I ain’t going nowhere!
  • FYI boys, Danielle has promised to use this $10,000 for breast implants. She’s already got C-cups but now she wants FUCKIN’ DOUBLE D’S!
