Quotes

#Quote
1Bo and Luke are essentially good guys. They're just reckless as all hell. Mean as snakes, but in a good way.
2You can tell it's good if you light it and a blue flame comes up; that means it's good moonshine and it won't make you go blind.
3I should quit, but man we have so much fun.
4I just love that spirit that makes people do things that they probably shouldn't.
5It's a real primal thing, watching someone get hurt. It's funny and accessible.
6People think by challenging me they're going to show they're tough. But I'm not tough. Decent drinker. Not such a bad kisser. But not a great fighter.
