We'll prepare.


I hate...

being obligated to talk to people

just because it's polite.

I hate...

people who say

that money doesn't matter,

because it does.

I hate laugh tracks.

I hate people who don't think

that there are two Americas.

I hate when you bite into an onion ring

and the onion comes out,

but then you're left with

this fried bread tube thing.

I hate how I always think that I have

a booger hanging out of my nose,

and I'm constantly trying

not to touch my nose so that...

I just... I always feel like

there's a booger that's there,

that's dangling there

when I'm talking to people, and...

I hate it.

I hate people who don't use pictures

of themselves on Facebook.



Uh, sorry. I, um...

I think I hit something over here!

Found her bed empty

and the screen

on her window removed

Right now, neither of her parents

are considered suspects

by the authorities,

but there is some interest

being paid to a neighbor.

Thanks, Leslie.

Prepare for the heat wave to contin...

Ready to go, buddy?

One of us has gotta lose some weight.

And Paris Hilton.

I fucking hate that bitch.

And... And hairy moles

on people's faces.

You know, I just want

to grab that catfish whisker

and just rip it

right off of their chin.

Jesus Christ.

And rotator cuffs.

I hate them.

I tore mine three years ago,

and it still hurts.

And I hate...

I hate black people.

I hate the way that they talk in movies.

I mean, it's got to bug the shit

out of you, too, right?

Hey, what time do you guys

want to practice tonight?

I thought you guys were

DJing at Jones tonight.

Nah, it's tomorrow.

I got plans.

That old married guy tonight?

He's not that old.

But he is that married.

Man, from here, he just seems

like somebody's dad.
