#Quote
1It just so happens that people aren't doing comedy about abortion or cannibalism or waterboarding. And that to me doesn't necessarily mean that there aren't aspects of those subjects that are funny, it just means that people are too uptight.
2If anything, when you're in your late 20s, early 30s, and then mid-30s, you're getting less attractive.
3I feel like it's a dangerous and dark world if 'Sunny' becomes mainstream comedy. If you were to turn on CBS at 8 o'clock on Thursday and see an episode of 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia,' I don't know if I want to live in that world.
4Regardless of your metabolism, if you stop consuming so many calories, you will lose weight.
5Dramas need to have a certain aesthetic that comedy just doesn't really seem to need to have.

#Trademark
1Humour from very dark characters and situations.
2Vain, immoral characters lacking in self-awareness.
3Often includes references to retro action films or music, either through story or dialogue.
4Recurring joke of Character's basing assumptions on Film/Televison cliches and being proven wrong.
