What is Coco's biggest pet peeve about Ice-T?
Ice-T: I know what that is. I eat cereal in the bed, and when I'm done I put the napkins in the bowl or in the glass...
Coco: In the glass!
Ice-T: Just to throw it away.
Coco: But it could be easily just...thrown away.
Ice-T: When she washes the dishes she got to pull the wet thing out.
Coco: And by the next day it's all soggy and it smells like milk and it's nasty.
Ice-T: All right. But look... when I'm finished I take my stuff and put it in a cup! So it's all together.
What is Ice-T's biggest pet peeve about Coco?
Ice-T: I know her weirdness.
Coco: I don't know how to say this.
Ice-T: She sleeps in pitch darkness. I can go to sleep and I wake up and she'll have put towels over the clocks, over the cracks in the table, block it all off, total vampire.
Coco: Totally vampired out.
Ice-T: You can't see your hand from your face; this woman needs it dark. And can't wear a mask, because that bothers her face.
Coco: Exactly, can't wear anything around my head!
Ice-T: Pitch darkness.
Coco: He knows!
Ice-T: Wonder what it's like to be dead or live in a coffin?
Coco: Yes. Total blackness.
What is one item in Coco's closet that Ice-T would like to throw in the garbage?
Ice-T: Oh, I got it.
Coco: Would I know this? Or have you kept this in the back of your head and never told me!
Ice-T: Yeah, you probably know this. You have no answer?
Coco: Yeah, I don't have an answer.
[Ice shows Coco his answer.]
Coco: You don't like my gold, shiny things?
Ice-T: I hate Uggs.
Coco: But they're so sparkly and ug—
Ice-T: Ugly? That's why they call 'em Uggs!
Coco: I do hate Uggs but I found some sparkly, gold Uggs that I had to wear to the dog park because I was ruining my heels! So instead of wearing plain old Uggs, why not get sequined Uggs?
Ice-T: Yeah, she got cute Uggs but I had to pick one thing. My girl's a shoe freak. We also agree that Crocs are pussy repellant.
Ice-T: You never heard a girl say, "Wow, you look hot in those Crocs."
Coco: And you know, people say, "It's cause they're comfortable."
Ice-T: Yeah, that doesn't count. Fashion is pain, OK?

Coco: He calls me "Monkey Neck"!
Ice-T: 'Cause when I'm playin' my video games or I'm watching TV or something like that—
Coco: I like to distract him.
Ice-T: She wants to get in my way. So she'll get in front of me and I'll be playing, so she'll move her hand around [my neck].
Coco: And I climb on him.
Ice-T: And thus, the Monkey Neck.
Coco: He's like, "Coco, Coco! I'm playing!"
Ice-T: "I'm about to get KILLED, move ya Monkey Neck ass!"
Coco: I asked him, "Could you pick a cuter name than Monkey Neck?"
Ice-T: Like Slut Bucket or something?
Coco: And he calls me that, too.

Coco: I never call him "Ice" or "Ice-T." I always call him "Honey," "Baby," "Boo."
Ice-T: See, she's a sweetheart. I'm the asshole.

Ice-T: And please, I hope anyone watching this... if you diss my fucking spelling you're a fucking nerd. Nerd fucking troll-ass bitch! I'm not trying to spell this shit right, aight?
Ice-T: L-O-U... fuck it.
