Question: What's it like to hang out with you and your friends?
Gervais: They wouldn’t. They think they would but then, as soon as I started squeezing their head and taking pictures of them, they’d go home. I know now why Ricky only got 6 mates in their world.

It’s having a laugh. Having a laugh and not hurting anyone. And that’s it, really. That really is it.
