The six crassest lines uttered by Jay, of Jay and Silent Bob

You might have noticed that Jason Mewes didn't utter a single four-letter word when we interviewed him about Kevin Smith: Live From Behind, a live recording of the duo's podcast, which select movie theaters across the country will screen tonight. Find more details in our online calendar listings.

We had no idea he was such a gentleman -- after all, his career-making character, Jay, is known (and much beloved) for his creatively foul mouth, something he's showed off in all sorts of Smith movies, most famously, Clerks. So to provide a contrast from his soapy clean Q&A session, we picked the best example of his colorful language from each film in which Jay appears.


I feel good today, Silent Bob, we're gonna make some money, then you know what we're going to do? We're gonna go to that party, we're gonna get some pussy, and I'm gonna fuck this bitch, I'll fuck this bitch, I'll fuck ANYTHING THAT MOVES! (to someone passing by screen) Yo, what the fuck you lookin' at? I'll kick your fuckin' ass! Shit yeah. (to Silent Bob) Doesn't that motherfucker owe me ten bucks? You know, fuckin' tonight, we're gonna rip off this fucker's head, and tear out his fuckin' soul. Remind me if he tries to buy something, I'm gonna shit in the motherfucker's bag. (to two women off screen) Hey, what's up, baby? What's up, sluts?


Phase one: First you take a run at La Fours with a sock full of quarters. I'd do it, but I pulled my back at humping your mom last night. Nootch! Okay, you clock him on his headpiece and knock his ass out cold. That's when phase two kicks in. I attack the structure Wolvie Berzerk style, and knock out the fuckin' pin and bickety bam, the motherfucker is rubble. Hence, no game show.

Well, think good, you fucking ninny shithead, because now she'll be all true blue and shit. This bitch tasted life, now she's willing to settle on your boring, funnybook-making ass.
