"Everyone's a Little Bit Racist"

Brian: Hey guys, what are you laughing about?
Gary: Racism!!
Brian: Cool!
Christmas Eve: Brian! Come back here! You take out recycrabres!
Princeton: What's that mean?
Brian: Um...recyclables.
All but Brian: *loud laughter*
Brian: Hey! Don't laugh at her! How many languages do you speak?
Kate : Oh, come off it, Brian! (LYRIC) Everyone's a little bit racist...
Brian: I'm not!
Princeton: Oh no?
Brian: Nope!
Princeton: Ha!
Brian: How many Oriental wives have you got?
Christmas Eve: What?! Brian!
Princeton: Brian, buddy, where've you been? The term is Asian-American!
Christmas Eve: I know you are no intending to be, but carring me "Orientar"... offensive to me!

Christmas Eve: The Jews have all the money and the Whites have all the power, and I'm arways in taxi-cab with driver who no shower!
Princeton: Me, too!
Kate: Me, too!
Gary: I can't even get a taxi!

Everyone's a little bit racist sometimes.
Doesn't mean we go around committing hate crimes!
Look around and you will find
No one's really color-blind.
Maybe it's a fact we all should face -
Everyone makes judgments... based on race!

Ethnic jokes may be uncouth,
But you laugh because they're based on truth!
Don't take them as personal attacks.
Everyone enjoys them... so relax!

Everyone's a little bit racist, it's true.
But everyone is just about as racist as you!
If we all could just admit
That we are racist a little bit,
And everyone stopped being so PC,
Maybe we could live in ... harmony!
Christmas Eve: Everyone's a rittre bit racist!

Gary: You were telling a black joke!
Princeton: Well, sure, Gary, but lots of people tell black jokes.
Gary: I don't.
Princeton: Well, of course, you don't. You're black! But I bet you tell Polack jokes, right?
Gary: Well, of course, I do. Ha-ha! Those stupid Polacks!

"What Do You Do With A B.A. In English? / It Sucks To Be Me"

Princeton: What do you do with a B.A. in English?
What is my life going to be?
Four years of college and plenty of knowledge,
Have earned me this useless degree.
I can't pay the bills yet, because I have no skills yet;
The world is a big scary place,
But somehow I can't shake the feeling I might make
A difference to the human race...

Christmas Eve: Why you all so happy?
Nicky: Because our lives suck!
Christmas Eve: Your rives suck? I healing you correctry? Ha! I coming to this country for opportunities. Try to work in Korean deri, but I am Japanese. But with hard work I earn two masters degrees in sociar work and now I a therapist but I have no crients and I have an unemproyed fiancé and we have rots of birrs to pay! It suck to be me. It suck to be me. I say it suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck-a-suck, it suck to be me!

Kate Monster: I'm kind of pretty, and pretty damn smart.
Brian:You are.
Kate Monster: (to Brian) Thanks! I like romantic things like music and art, and as you know I have a gigantic heart! So why don't I have a boyfriend? Fuck! It sucks to be me!

Gary: I'm Gary Coleman, from T.V.'s Different Strokes. I made a lot of money that got stolen by my folks! Now I'm broke and I'm the butt of everyone's jokes but I'm here, the superintendent on Avenue Q!
Everyone: It sucks to be you!
Kate: You win.
Everyone: It sucks to be you!
Brian: I feel better now.
Gary: Try having people stopping you to ask you, "What're you talking about, Willis?" It gets old.

"If You Were Gay"

Nicky: Well, okay, but just so you know
if you were gay
that'd be okay.
I mean because, hey! Ha!
I like you anyway!
Because you see,
if it were me,
I would feel free to say
that I was gay.
(But I'm not gay.)
Rod:Nicky,please!I am trying to read!
Nicky:If you were queer,
I'd still be here,
Year after year,
Because you're dear
To me.
And I know that you,
Would accept me too,
If I told you today,
"Hey!Guess what,I'm gay"
But I'm not gay.
Just being with you.
Rod:High button shoes,pal Joey...
Nicky:So what should it,
Matter to me,
What you to do in
With guys?
Rod:Nicky,that's Gross!
Nicky:No,it's not!
If you were gay,
Nicky:I'd shout hooray!
Rod:I not listening!
Nicky:And here I'd stay,
Rod:La la la la la!!
Nicky:But I wouldn't get
In your way.
Nicky: You can count on me
to always be
beside you every day,
to tell you "It's okay,
you were just born that way,
and, as they say,
it's in your DNA!"
You're GAY!
Rod: I am NOT gay!
Nicky: If you WERE gay.
Rod: Argh!


Nicky: "Schadenfreude", huh? What's that? Some kind of Nazi word?
Gary Coleman: Yup! It's German for "happiness at the misfortune of others".
Nicky: "Happiness at the misfortune of others" ... That is German!

Gary: Right now you are down and out, and feeling really crappy.
Nicky: I'll say.
Gary: And when I see how sad you are, it sort of makes me... happy!
Nicky: "Happy?!"
Gary: Sorry, Nicky, human nature, nothing I can do! It's Schadenfreude, making me feel glad that I'm not you!

Nicky: How about straight A students getting B's?
Gary: Exes getting STDs!
Nicky: Waking doormen from their naps!
Gary: Watching tourist reading maps!
Nicky: Football players getting tackled!
Gary: CEOs getting shackled!
Nicky: Watching actors never reach
