I wasn't the only one who brought flies to the party.

You are the only one who can hold yourself accountable.

When it comes to tacos, it's the tortilla that's the star. We are tortillas, we can make life anything we want.

[Immigration] is bigger than politics. You can't solve the problems of immigration with a pen in the government. You can't enjoy tacos if you're angry, we just need to treat others better. That's what if falls to. Be thankful.
