„I mean, it's so hard to make Russell Crowe look like he got in a fight.“

—  Jon Stewart
The 78th Academy Awards (2006), Context: I really thought that the make-up artist for Cinderella Man should have won. I mean, it's so hard to make Russell Crowe look like he got in a fight.

„When you go to the zoo and you see a monkey throwing poop, you go, "that's what monkeys do, what are you gonna do?" But what I wish the media would do more frequently is say "bad monkey."“

—  Jon Stewart
Context: If I was to really get at the burr in my saddle, it's not politics — and this is, I think, probably a horrible analogy — but I look at politicians as, they are doing what inherently they need to do to retain power. Their job is to consolidate power. When you go to the zoo and you see a monkey throwing poop, you go, "that's what monkeys do, what are you gonna do?" But what I wish the media would do more frequently is say "bad monkey." Charlie Rose interview, September 29, 2004

„The country’s 24 hour political pundit perpetual panic conflictinator did not cause our problems but its existence makes solving them that much harder.“

—  Jon Stewart
Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear closing speech (2010), Context: The country’s 24 hour political pundit perpetual panic conflictinator did not cause our problems but its existence makes solving them that much harder.  The press can hold its magnifying glass up to our problems bringing them into focus, illuminating issues heretofore unseen or they can use that magnifying glass to light ants on fire and then perhaps host a week of shows on the sudden, unexpected dangerous flaming ant epidemic.  If we amplify everything we hear nothing.

„And then I'd get it and think, well geez, Poland's just up the road a piece and… you know the rest.“

—  Jon Stewart, buch Naked Pictures of Famous People
Naked Pictures of Famous People (1998), Context: Hitler: Denial is a powerful thing... I always thought I could stop any time I wanted. "If I could just get Czechoslovakia, that'll be the end of it. I'll be happy then." And then I'd get it and think, well geez, Poland's just up the road a piece and... you know the rest.

„Me!! The inventor of the Blitzkrieg“

—  Jon Stewart, buch Naked Pictures of Famous People
Naked Pictures of Famous People (1998), Context: Hitler: Look, I was a bad guy. No question. I hate that Hitler. The yelling, the finger-pointing, I don't know... I was a very angry guy. King: And this... new Hitler? Hitler: I get up at seven, have half a melon, do the Jumble in the morning paper and then let the day take me where it will. Some days I'll fish, maybe hit the mall for an Orange Julius. The other day I spent seven hours in the park watching ants cart off part of a sandwich. Me!! The inventor of the Blitzkrieg... When you stop having to control everything, it's very freeing.

„Just because we hit on points that resonate, or people think are real complaints—that doesn't make us journalists.“

—  Jon Stewart
Hartford Advocate Interview (2008), Context: People would like to place a standard on our show that doesn't exist. We're not set up for reporting; we don't have an apparatus for that. We're discussing things that hopefully people might get something out of, but it's wildly inconsistent. Just because we hit on points that resonate, or people think are real complaints—that doesn't make us journalists.

„Hasn't God already made up his mind on that sort of thing?“

—  Jon Stewart
Stand-up performance at RIT (2005), Context: It upset me that, five days after the hurricane hit down in New Orleans, the President's plan was for a day of prayer. I would have thought a truck of food. A day of prayer. Now, maybe I'm mistaken here and, again, I'm not a scientific expert, but isn't a hurricane officially an act of God? Isn't a day of prayer kind of redundant? Hasn't God already made up his mind on that sort of thing? So we do a day of prayer. The President has his stupid day of prayer. Three days later, Hurricane Rita hits. Somebody must have said something... something like, "is that all you got?"

„It should have been a crowning moment, but I clearly remember thinking, What am I doing here? I hate crowds.“

—  Jon Stewart, buch Naked Pictures of Famous People
Naked Pictures of Famous People (1998), Context: Hitler: I'm not going to lie to you, it took a while. There were moments all along where I knew something was wrong. I remember one time... I think it was in Munich. We were having a rally. 100,000 people all chanting my name. The bonfires were going. The whole shebang. It should have been a crowning moment, but I clearly remember thinking, What am I doing here? I hate crowds.

„The Michael Jordan of war took a pass.“

—  Jon Stewart
Stand-up performance at RIT (2005), Context: Here's how bizarre the war is that we're in in Iraq, and we should have known this right from the get-go: When we first went into Iraq, Germany didn't want to go. Germany. The Michael Jordan of war took a pass.

„I thought I was just ordering cable.“

—  Jon Stewart
Context: I signed up for what? I thought I was just ordering cable. Chicago Tribune, August 12, 1998; on signing on as host of The Daily Show.
