Here are some choice quotes from the aforementioned documentary:

Walter Day: I wanted to be a hero. I wanted to be the center of attention. I wanted the glory, I wanted the fame. I wanted the pretty girls to come up and say, "Hi, I see that you're good at Centipede."

Roy Schildt aka Mr. Awesome: Everything would've fell right into place, but he forgot about one thing: About me convincing Steve Wiebe not to be a chump, talking him out of chumpatizing himself.

Billy Mitchell: No matter what I say, it draws controversy. It's sort of like the abortion issue.

Jillian Wiebe: Work is for people who can't play video games.

Jillian Wiebe: I never knew that the Guinness World Record Book was so... I never knew it was so important.
Steve Wiebe: I guess a lot of people are... yeah, a lot of people read that book.
Jillian Wiebe: [while directly looking at Steve, her father] Some people sort of ruin their lives to be in there.

As you can see, young Jillian Wiebe (she must have been between 10 and 12 years old) possesses quite the biting wit.

That first quote reminds me of a Flight of the Concords bit.
