Movie Quote of the Day – Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, 2005 (dir. Michel Gondry)


Dave Chappelle: That was “‘Round Midnight” I was playing. That’s the Thelonious Monk song. One of my favorite musicians, ’cause his timing was so ill. Every comedian is a stickler for timing, and Thelonious Monk was off time, yet perfectly on time. You should study it. If you’re an aspiring comedian, or an aspiring musician, you should study it. Which brings me to my next point. Comedians and musicians, we’re like this: [interlocks fingers] Every comic wants to be a musician. Every musician thinks they’re funny. It’s a very strange relationship that we have. Some musicians are funny. Some comedians can play. I’ll give you an example: Mos Def – funny guy; Jamie Foxx – good singer and piano player. So you never know, you never know what kind of talents a person has. I am mediocre at both, but I’ve managed to talk my way into a fortune. Life is a funny and unpredictable thing!

There are two types of people: Those that talk the talk and those that walk the walk. People who walk the walk, they sometimes talk the talk. But most of the time, they don’t talk at all, because they walking. Now, people who talk the talk, when it comes time for them to walk, you wanna know what they do?
Djay: What is that?
