  Demetri Martin: "Pillow Fights, okay. Man vs. woman: Fun. Man vs. man: Gay. Woman vs. woman: Awesome. Man vs. pillow: Crazy. Pillow vs. pillow: Crazy Awesome."

 "I was in a card store, and they had cards that said "Get well soon." Bleep that. Get well now.

  • Something Completely Different: First show: "These Are Jokes", where he simply strums and tells many little gags one after the other. Second show: "If I", an hour-long monologue about palindromes, his stint in law school, and coming to terms with having a lot of useless talents.
