Was the subject (sort of) of the independent film Calling Bobcat (2000). In a key part of the film, the two main characters theorize about the sobering effect that drinking olive oil before drinking alcohol can have on the human body. This is a reference to lines spoken by Bobcat Golthwait's character in the film Burglar (1987). After the stunt fails, the two characters spend much of the movie trying to track down the comedian.
I lost my job. I didn't actually lose my job. My job is still there, but somebody else is doing it.... I lost my girlfriend. I didn't actually lose my girlfriend. My girlfriend is still there, but somebody else is doing it.
I didn't see "Phantom Menace" or the "Attack of the Clones" because I'm forty years old and I've been laid.

(about fatherhood, 1992) Yeah, my kids have already started a support group.
You can't blame the President for everything that's wrong with this country. That's like blaming Ronald McDonald if you get a bad cheeseburger.
That movie looks so bad, I can't believe I wasn't in it.

If you ever see me getting beaten by the police, put down the video camera and come help me! Don't chase me around! Don't be going 'whhhoooo I'm gonna sell this to Spike Lee, or Bob Saget.'
