1[on the craft of comedy] Keep grinding your axe because you can get rusty. Every joke has a life and it'll dictate it's life to you. So your responsibility is to bring that joke alive each and every time.
2I will rule the apocalypse. I know exactly what needs to be done, what you need to keep and what you got to let go of. People are the same. If you're nice in life, you'r probably going to be nice in the apocalypse. It's all about survival.
