I got kicked out of class so much and it wasn't fair because I was just talking. In class, if there was a pretty girl, I would just try to talk [to her] all the time. I like to talk, especially to girls. And I got kicked out of class all the time. The teacher would be like "All right, stop," and I'd be like "okay", and keep talking. Then I'd try to impress her and it wouldn't really work. I'd get kicked out for trying to be funny, like they'd call me up to read and I'd read the wrong thing. I didn't take high school very seriously.
Benji's the evil twin.
One time I wanted to ask this girl to a dance, it was homecoming or something. I was too nervous because I get a little shy sometimes. Benj is definitely outspoken and I was like "Call her and say you're me", cause we sound alike. He called and asked her to the dance for me. She said no [laughs].
If I were in that pit, I'd be making out with every one of you.

(on the mosh pit) Don't grope girls, 'cause that's just disrespectful. There are no rules, but if you disrespect the ladies you're jacked... If it's muddy, your clothes start to get sticky, and you can take 'em off... Every once in a while there will be that girl with the armpit hair. Its like "Damn, girl! Shave that!"
(at Wet Seal) These are nice socks.
Those people who shun us just because of the label we're on, or the fact that we've got a video out there that's getting us somewhere, are only limiting themselves, because they aren't keeping an open mind. Besides, no band has ever given us shit for our career path. It's mostly just jaded punkers.

I think that our goal in Good Charlotte is just to be Good Charlotte, and whatever happens, whatever that means, we don't even know, we just push on and tour and make music and do whatever.

(to Benji) In 10th grade, I kissed your girlfriend. But don't worry, I didn't like it. She used too much tongue.
I think Benj is a little bit more outgoing and in your face. I'm a little bit more reserved and quiet and conservative in some ways. Benj is wild, you never know what to expect out of him. He's out of control sometimes, and that's the way he is and I love him for it. I wouldn't change one thing about him. We're just like Yin and Yang, me and him, like night and day sometimes. He's really outspoken and he says what he thinks right away. He's got strong opinions and he's very hard core about being, um... he's not straight-edged, like, he doesn't call himself straight-edged, but he is just very extreme. Whatever he does is extreme and I'm not quite as much like that.
