"Meeting nice people who put makeup on your face."
"All of the people who, like, pull up your underpants and make sure your boobs are taped in the right spots."
"When old people are in love."
"Um, yeah… I kinda do."
"Ooh, um, I would live in the 1930s, because I really like how the women dressed, and I like the music, and I like the party culture. But in the United States, not in Europe, because that was bad for Jews."
"When people mean to compliment you and they say, 'You know, you're actually really funny in this.' That's a bummer, not a compliment."
"I guess those embroidered shirts that men wear… like dragon shirts, you know what I mean? That kind of stuff — I don't love it."
"Women wearing ties."
"If you want it, go for it. I don't know. I don't know how to do it."
"Ew, no! No, no, no, no, no. I like Earth."
"Denise is doing well. Yeah, you know, for someone who probably gets bullied a lot at school. She's basically a reincarnation of me at that age except I didn't have the long, long braid, but I mean we're getting close. Sometimes it kind of breaks my heart a little bit to play the character 'cause I really get it. But she's doing well. You know, she's that kid that recycles what her parents [tell her]… my parents were always like, 'Look, school might be hard, but, like, when you're 30, all those girls that are mean are going to be boring, and you're going to be cool.' And I think Denise is kind of like, 'Well, at this point, people might be making fun of me a lot, but when it all comes down to it, I'm an individual.' She's not having a fun time, but she's trying."
"Um, I'm lucky enough to not know that woman, you know? But I think what's tough about that character for me is that Christine Woods — who I play opposite, she plays Jessica — is so nice, and I think I'm nice. And when I went in there the first day and we started doing it, I was like, 'I feel really bad doing this.' I mean, the energy does feel real to me, and I don't like it. I really don't. You're still staring at that person and doing it to them, even if it's acting. And in a way, it feels more violent than fake fighting. 'Cause at least when you do, let's say, fake fighting in something, it's so controlled. It's choreographed, and you know everyone is making sure that it's safe. But when you're just being a b**** to someone, you're just looking in their face and making that face, and there is a part of me that's like, 'I don't like this. I don't like it.' I enjoy the challenge but…."
"I don't know if we'll do another round of Catherine, which is our sort of avant-garde, experimental web series that I'm very proud of. But we have another Marcel the Shell book coming out in November, we're making another short, we have plans to make a feature film with music of Marcel, and we have lots of stuff that we're working on. We have a creative household, and both of my parents are artists — I grew up in a creative household. I think it's nice. Sometimes it's good enough just to, like, walk the dogs, though. I'll do whatever with him; I really like him. He's really cool."
"We'll probably not ever meet his sister. I think she's gone. She's traveling — that's what he says to himself. But he has a lot of neighbors, and in the book we get to meet his grandmother, and you get to see he lives in an apartment where there's a baby. Yeah, lots of stuff. He has a best friend named Jerry who's always congested and blows himself off the couch they're standing on when he sneezes."
