Streetalk: Why do some people think you're stupid?

Ed: Because I hate the Beatles. Ringo's music is terrible. The Monkeys were way better. Their haircuts were better, their outfits were way better, and did the Beatles have a TV show? No, I don't think so. The Monkeys, dude. How could you deny my little Davey [Jones]? John Lennon partied too much. Yoko brought them all down. I don't listen to them because of Yoko. She was the ninth Beatle, dude. I really loathe them. "Daydream Believer" by the Monkeys — the Beatles never had a song like that.

Victoria: Because I'm an 18-year-old college student. People think we're really dumb. People who have children — and whose children are grown — now think their children were the best little angels in the world. But they think the rest of us 18-year-olds are stupid. We're young. We're trying new things. But when we try new things, people think we're stupid. They don't think we hear what they say. We hear, and we don't forget. And the media makes us all out to be stupid most times.

Danielle: Old Southern traditions die hard, and the way to deal with a woman with a mind is to look at her and treat her like she's stupid, because they don't understand. They don't understand my sarcasm. I get that blank stare. They have their mouth gaping, looking at you like they're waiting for something more — but there is nothing more. It's usually older Southern men with really big mouths with small teeth. Fuck the South. I don't like the bugs here. I don't like the trees here. I like snow.
