Gavin: Do you know why I won't drive? Because, as a foreign person in this country, I can very easily get deported if I break the law. They'll just be like, "Get out", and I'll be like, "Aw". Every day of the year, I have absolutely zero chance of harming anyone with anything I do. I will never hurt anyone. [...] If I drive, I could very easily crash into a car or accidentally run someone over. If you got distracted and mowed down, like, a family, you're in trouble! That's ruined it!
Gus: You are, you are in trouble.
Gavin: I can't mow down anyone in the passenger seat. I can try, but I won't.

Gavin: How did that become-?!
Gus: "Now I have to leave the country, because they died."
Gavin: Obviously I'd be horrified at the four people I've mowed down-
Burnie: If we had not challenged you, would you ever have said, "Well, first of all, I'm horrified that I killed the four people"?
Gavin: I felt like that was a given! How did you turn that around on me being a piece of shit? "Ga-dunk, ga-dunk, oops, better look for flights immediately!" How do you turn that around?!
Burnie: That's the way you presented it!
Gus: I would actually imagine you'd do this: You run over four people, ga-dunk, ga-dunk, ga-dunk, and then you go, "Well, great!"
