Great Quotes

  • Brian: "Can I mail them a check for $.35?"
    • Ron: "You should totally do that just to kick off the Brazil like bureaucracy problem. When the BBC gets a check for $.37 from an American, and they're like, 'Well we can't cash this.' And it'll get passed around and the check will be in a plastic bag and through the pneumatic tubes in the BBC and it'll never get cashed."
