Episode Quotes
Craig: I'm very excited cause there's a big movie opening today that I wanna see, it's called Gamer. It's about a guy called Mer and he's gay.

Craig: The thing about pong was it combined the computer technology of the 1970's with the boredom of tennis.

Craig: That was an awful game. You could snort a line of speed and still be bored playing Pong.

Craig: I love the little Ms. Pacman. She wore a little red bow, she ran around in circles, gobbled pills and got chased by ghosts. It was like my life in the 1980's.

Craig: People say that violent video games turn people into agressive killers, and then other people say they turn people into couch potatoes. You have to make up your mind, you can't be both.

Craig: The idea that people imitate what they see in video games is ridiculous. After Donkey Kong came out there was not one case of an italian plumber jumping over barrels and fighting gorillas.

Craig: Last year Congress considered outlawing the game Grand Theft Auto because in the game you do drugs, you rob people and you even hire prostitutes and I'm thinking, what's the problem? These are skills you need in real life. And you would think that certain congressman would know that.

Craig: A wise man once said, give a man a hooker and he'll have fun for a night. But teach a man how to hire a hooker and he'll have fun for a lifetime.
