#Quote
1[on his fame as Pootie Tang] People come up and yell. Most recently, I'm getting blinds in my apartment, and the blinds guy from Sears is measuring my window. A very nice brother. I tell him, ''Yeah, that's great,'' and he looks at me and says, ''Sepa-tai, sibi-ta, sepa-ta!'' And I think, oh God, even the blinds guy.
2[on Pootie Tang (2001)] On some level, you're like a silent movie character. It was fun, but I'm a writer. I like to say funny stuff in English.
3[on Pootie Tang (2001)] I was completely out of the loop on all this movie stuff. When somebody walked in and said Paramount and MTV were considering doing a Pootie Tang movie, I was like, you've got to be kidding. But I never thought we'd do the sketch more than once on the show in the first place. I guess I'm just worried about being famous only as Pootie Tang. My goal has always been to be a performer/writer, whereas here I'm primarily an actor. I want to be able to do stuff with me talking and not have people saying, ''No, we want you to speak the Pootie way!''
4[on Pootie Tang's costume] Oh no, I don't dress like that. I'm all about shirts and shorts. When I first had to do it on the show it was rough, but when I got over it I was pretty much over it. You just hold up the clothes and go, oh God, I've got to do this. But I did get some gasoline and some matches in case anyone tried to ship that stuff to me.
