And I did all that just like bam you know?"?

"There's nothing wrong with being a loser, it just depends on how good you are at it." (as said by Billie Joe)"?

"Tré on their first tour bus: It's, like, an ok tour bus and all, but people see book mobile on the side and come up and ask us if we have any books to sell. I mean how stupid is that....books? We don't even read.""?

"Billie-Joe: We put the 'fun' back in dysfunctional."?

Billie-Joe: I sound like an Englishman impersonating and American impesronating an American."?
