Listen, just because most of us aren’t going out regularly and are stuck at home with generally the same people day in and day out, that doesn’t mean there’s not funny stuff going on.
There’s your family, your roommates, your delivery people, Zoom meetings, and a bunch of other interesting ways you can eavesdrop on people – and these 16 people have overheard some pretty funny stuff.
So, Jimmy Fallon recently asked the following question…
It's time for Tonight Show: At Home Edition Hashtags! Tell us the funniest thing you've heard someone say during quarantine, and tag it with #QuarantineQuotes. Could be on the show!

And boy did he get some answers…
16. This is just so wholesome.
Trust kids to even make Zoom cute.
An elementary student on Zoom raised her hand and asked the teacher if she could go to the bathroom 🙂 #QuarantineQuotes

15. Good, I’ve missed B.C.
Since it’s B.C.E. now, you know (history nerd here).

14. You have to have a certain number of signatures to get out.
And you can’t ask your family, because they definitely want to get rid of you.
When quarantine is over, let’s not tell some people. #quarantinequotes

13. Nobody wants that to happen.
It’s one of the only perks of this entire thing.
My son as he’s bringing a basket of laundry to the laundry room: “Mom, you’re going to need to wash this basket of pajamas or I will need to resort to wearing real clothes again.” ? #quarantinequotes

12. The answer to this question is obviously always yes.
It matters not how old you are.
My 32 year old husband looked at me the other day and said “sooo, do you want to build a fort”? And we did. #QuarantineQuotes

11. I hope this is just the sort of relationship they have.
Otherwise I feel like it’s a cry for help.
You should walk around in your swimsuit instead of your sweats during quarantine, that will keep you out of the kitchen. #QuarantineQuotes

10. Now there’s an idea.
I like the outside the box thinking.
I’m sealing off the front room in the house so that I have somewhere to go on holiday in August.#QuarantineQuotes

9. She’s not wrong.
But she’s still gonna have a rude awakening when this is all over some day.
I asked my four year old daughter to put pants on. Her response? “There’s no need for pants anymore!” #QuarantineQuotes

8. Okay fine it’s funny.
And sad and funny idk either.
“Sad but true”- my aunt Kathy #QuarantineQuotes I didn’t know if I wanted to cry bc it was funny or bc I was sad. Sent to the group chat with my little sis and my cuz (8th graders). I’m a senior. 🙂 pic.twitter.com/a8bORV29nV

7. This just makes me sad all the way around.
But I’m still keeping my dog inside for her own good, too.

6. I have no idea what this means.
You gotta keep people on their toes, I guess.

5. It’s the little things that get you going these days.
Like being able to sing this tweet, for instance.
To the window
To the wall
Then I might go down the hall ???#quarantinequotes #QuarantineLife

4. We all wish we hadn’t overheard that.
There are only 50 states still, right?
Well Trump just said he spoke with hundreds of Governors.

3. Oh, no what a shame.
And I bet she just couldn’t get back on, either.
“Maureen, are you still there?”
“What happened to Maureen?”
“I don’t know. Hey, Maureen, can you hear us?”
“We’ve lost Maureen.”

2. Yeah, I love my family but I could think of a few.
Idris Elba. Derek Jeter. Zac Efron. Kristen Bell…
I came downstairs and said to my family, “I can’t think of three people I’d rather be quarantined with.” My 11 year old IMMEDIATELY said, “OH, I CAN!” #QuarantineQuotes.

1. All the way down.
Because I don’t think we’ve found the bottom yet.
I’ve never in my life related more to a quote than I have to this one #quarantinequotes pic.twitter.com/AtLF46UDG5

These really just tickled my funny bone – I hope they got yours, too.
