“Money is terrible. It’s just a depressing way of boiling our wonderful world into a set of grey, eyeless, dickless little numbers, and then using them to screw each other over. ‘Ooh, one for me and one for you! Ooh, you’ve got one more than me, I’m gonna stab you in the ribs.’ That’s what money is.”

“I’m convinced no one actually likes clubs. It’s a conspiracy. We’ve been told they’re cool and fun; that only “saddoes” dislike them. And no one in our pathetic little pre-apocalyptic timebubble wants to be labelled “sad” - it’s like being officially declared worthless by the state. So we muster a grin and go out on the town in our millions. Clubs are despicable. Cramped, overpriced furnaces with sticky walls and the latest idiot theme tunes thumping through the humid air so loud you can’t hold a conversation, just bellow inanities at megaphone-level. And since the smoking ban, the masking aroma of cigarette smoke has been replaced by the overbearing stench of crotch sweat and hair wax. Clubs are such insufferable dungeons of misery, the inmates have to take mood-altering substances to make their ordeal seem halfway tolerable. This leads them to believe they “enjoy” clubbing. They don’t. No one does. They just enjoy drugs.”

Lauren Laverne: Charlie, you’ve had a very busy week what with having a baby this week.
Charlie Brooker: I did.
(The audience cheers.)
Charlie: You know you are basically…I mean, thank you, but you are just applauding biology. I did a shit this morning, where were you then? I’ve got photos on my phone, as well. It was fully formed, it looks just like me.
