"We use comedy as a sword and a shield..."

Here are some of my favorite entertainment quotes of the moment:

"We use comedy as a sword and a shield, and a medicine, but usually as a 'getting to know you.' We use comedy to break the ice. Are you like-minded? What can you take? What do you like?" ~ Ricky Gervais, in his standup show "Out of England 2"

"I am nothing if not falsely humble." ~ Jane Lynch, upon receiving the Golden Globe for her performance in "Glee"

"I used to introduce myself. Now I think it's rude. It's not about me." ~ Character Captain Tony Stone in "The Messenger"

One that's just plain silly:

"I never thought I'd be in a graveyard, in a spa robe, talking to a beautiful transvestite in the moonlight." ~ Character Jonathan Ames in "Bored to Death"

And a short clip from Ricky Gervais' latest show. Don't worry, it's clean. Happy Friday!
