4) On screwing up the meaning of words (a recurring gag in the movie)

Galifianakis: “I think I'm that person a lot too. It’s really funny not knowing words, it makes me laugh.”

Offerman:  “...It's something...a sense of humor that [Bob and I] share. But he especially...they're peppered throughout the film where he makes fun of people for...pokes fun at [them for] not knowing the etymology of a certain five-dollar word. “

Galifianakis: “My uncle used to...he would do those things, and he would say things, but completely serious. Never trying to be funny. 'Don't talk about your uncle behind my back, I have ears like a hawk.' [And I would say] 'Uncle Scooty' - that was his name, Scooty - 'Uncle Scooty, hawks...they don't have ears.' He was the manager of a restaurant in New York I worked in, Tequila Willie's. And once we were sitting at the bar, I was counting my tips - in change - and he says to me, 'Don't look. Don't look. Don't even look.' So I didn't look. And he said, 'Do you know who that is?'”

5) On Offerman’s tour to promote the film at screenings around the country:

Offerman: “Tribeca Films is behind this release. We're opening at six cities like this across the country, and I'm traveling and doing a weekend in each city. Next weekend is San Francisco, if you guys would like to join us at the Roxie Theater. Jerry Lewis is gonna be doing a Q&A with me, and then Mel Brooks...[pauses]...that's not, that's all false.”

6) On the production budget

Galifianakis: “What's the cost of something like this? What does a movie like that cost to make?”

Offerman: “I think we shot it for the mid-to-low-six figures, and by the time we added in all the post costs and whatnot, and the production costs for online promotional videos, it landed somewhere like the mid-six figures.“

Galifianakis: “Is that including the comma, or...?”

Offerman: “No. “

Galifianakis: “I always get confused when people throw numbers around like that.”

Offerman: “It's seven spaces, but six figures.”

Galifianakis: “So we're talking hundreds of thousands of dollars, not tens of thousands of dollars. “


7) On the magical suitcase

Galifianakis: “Does anybody in the audience have a question that they would like to ask? Because I thought it would be fun to take some from the audience...a Q&A. I have a really big rapport with people on Fairfax. Fairfax is one of my stronger streets. If this was on De Longpre...”

Audience member: "The suitcase. Tell us about the suitcase."

Galifianakis: “Yes, tell us about the suitcase. I was gonna get to that, but...”

Offerman: “That was actually more of a command. You can turn it into a question.”

Galifianakis: “Yeah, this is not a C&A.”

Offerman: “You can turn it into a question with one magic word, sir.”

Audience member: “Please.”

Offerman: “Oh, thank you. The suitcase...contained within the suitcase is the magic and poetry of the film. That's what the filmmakers would like you to...that's the very question we would like you to answer for yourself. But I will share a tidbit about the suitcase. At the last second in post-production...we used to have a little epilogue that came after the credits that said 'Four Years Earlier.' And it was my character Sal jerking off into the suitcase. Which is still open to your interpretation. I like to think it's my homunculus in the suitcase. But certainly it's some sort of sparkly jizz.”

Galifianakis: [to the man who asked the question] “Is that what you wanted?”

8) On the musical score

Offerman: “Bob works with music very intricately. Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend was our composer. And he was...”

"That's what I go to...[to] camp out for 'Twilight' tickets. Oh no, they’re wolves, nevermind. I was trying to say that had a vampire weekend, it doesn't...go ahead. But I think they're wolves, they're not vampires. Anyway, the music.”
