You’re that Hollywood cigarette that’s desired by all. Well, I lost my lighter today, and I don’t know how to burn you. I threw away my matches a long time ago, because they remind you of forgotten times.

They (the matches) don’t mean a damn to me; they are in a landfill now. I might as well be buried there myself, 'cause I ain’t worth two shits, sweetheart. My time ain’t my time, and I’m proud of where I’m from ... it’s just that damn Pennsylvania slang. I can’t afford you, princess.

It’ll be a glorious day when the celebrities kick their habits.
