Jean-Michael Basquiat: Anything is fine.

Mike Tyson: I don’t know anything.

Basquiat: No, sometimes I don't even know it.

Tyson: So I have to help me.

Basquiat: Sometimes. Sometimes not.

Basquiat: It took me about 15 minutes to get up the nerve to go in there.

Tyson: I rushed down there and it was already pretty much a done deal.

Basquiat: Yeah, I remember.

Tyson: You don’t feel anything.

Basquiat: But I could see, it was lunchtime.

Tyson: We’re doing it for bragging rights.

Basquiat: No, not at all.

Tyson: I’m just happy to be alive.

Basquiat: And it gets really dark in the woods, you don’t know where you are.

Tyson: So what am I afraid of? The guy that has the pigeons is the guy that nobody messes with.

Basquiat: And I asked him if he wanted to spar.
