You look like a monkey.

Skinny, flat-chested, Cro-Magnon features, and she turns me on.

You are either the healthiest person I’ve ever met or the sickest.

You are too human.

I will grant you your divorce. 

I don’t regret anything I’ve done including spitting in your face

and threatening to kill you.
