Oooo, history and comedy. My favourite!

"Yes, and I grew up in Europe, where the history comes from. Oh, yeah. You 
tear your history down, man! “30 years old, let's smash it to the floor 
and put a car park here!" I have seen it in stories. I saw  something in a 
program on something in Miami, and they were saying, "We've redecorated 
this building to how it looked over 50 years ago!" And people were going, 
"No, surely not, no. No one was alive then!

"Well, we got tons of history lying about the place, big old castles, and 
they just get in the way. We're driving-- "Oh, a fucking castle! Have to 
drive around it..." Disney came over and built Euro Disney, and they built 
the Disney castle there, and it was, "You better make it a bit bigger, 
they've actually got them here... And they're not made of plastic!" We got 
tons of them, ‘cause you think we all live in castles, and we do all 
live in castles! We all got a castle each. We're up to here with fucking 
castles! We just long for a bungalow or something."
