What do you get when you cross a mentally ill loner with a society that abandons him and treats him like trash? I’ll tell you what you get. You get what you f***ing deserve![to Murray]
Comedy is subjective, Murray. Isn’t that what they say? All of you, the system that knows so much, you decide what’s right or wrong the same way that you decide what’s funny or not.
The worst part about having a mental illness is people expect you to behave as if you don’t.[written in his notebook]
Have you seen what it’s like out there, Murray? Do you ever actually leave the studio? Everybody just yells and screams at each other. Nobody’s civil anymore! Nobody thinks what it’s like to be the other guy. You think men like Thomas Wayne ever think what it’s like to be someone like me? To be somebody but themselves? They don’t. They think that we’ll just sit there and take it, like good little boys! That we won’t werewolf and go wild!
You don’t listen, do you? I don’t think you ever really hear me. You just ask the same questions every week. “How was your job? Are you having any negative thoughts?” All I have are negative thoughts.[to Social Worker]
