Zach Galifianakis: So the possum is somewhat of a metaphor.
Phoenix: I don’t do press.
Galifianakis: I try to write three jokes every day.
Phoenix: There's some sexy songs, some club songs. But I don't know. I'm not the kind of writer that makes the decision, and says, "This is going to be about Egypt."

Phoenix: You're outside something.
Galifianakis: I never really realized that I was a producer of it until later, but by then, it was too late.
Phoenix: We've had a couple blowups.
Galifianakis: No, no, no, no.
Phoenix: It's been a slow-going dissatisfaction with the process for me.
Galifianakis: Sometimes it felt a little dirty.
Phoenix: Most recently, I read a script and all I thought about was makeup and hair people touching me and having to do press and fucking whatever shit.
Galifianakis: I play a hunter who's an alcoholic.
Phoenix: We weren't wearing camouflage.
Galifianakis: “Don't make fun of Cher, don't make fun of Sheryl Crow.”
Phoenix: I don't want to be sensitive about it.
Galifianakis: It's this horrible snowboarding movie that I'm in.
Phoenix: I went to the premiere, but I didn't stay.
Galifianakis: Happens a lot.
Phoenix: You couldn't see shit and it was out of focus and stuff.
Galifianakis: He asked me what I was doing the following week, and I told him that I had plans to go to Arby's, and he laughed at that.
Phoenix: I live in the hills, and there are a lot of coyotes and stuff.
Galifianakis: He laughs at them, but he doesn't understand them.
Phoenix: But I'm actually, this sounds horrible, I'm thinking it might be a double record.
Galifianakis: I have no idea what I'm doing at all, but it's just fun.
Phoenix: Nothing serious.
