#Quote
1 Once a year my back will go out and it'll be... it's like a sciatic thing and it's the smallest thing. Like I could be leaning over the sink to brush my teeth in a weird way and it happens.
2 I've always been the guy who doesn't necessarily get it with women. A woman would have to say, 'I like you, I want to go out with you, you can ask me.' And still I would question it. Did she mean it?
3 I want to do movies that I'm proud of where my kids, at some point, can see and I can feel comfortable sitting there watching it with them. And just that move people. That make people feel a little bit better about themselves when they leave the theatre.
4 As American as an apple is and as American as baseball is, they don't go together. You can't be chewing an apple at a baseball game. You've got to let go of the diet that day.
5 You think school ends when it ends, but it doesn't.
6 Teachers have a chance to mold someone, inspire them. I hope all teachers realize that.
7 Now I'm starting to jog. But every time I do jog I have 9-1 pressed into my phone, with the next '1' ready to be launched in case I drop.
8 My favorite movie of all time is 'Rocky.'
9 Just me onstage with a mike having an intimate relationship with the audience. I don't get nervous for that. I just get excited.
10 It's always cool to meet people who can do things that you have no capacity to do.
11 If I do a movie where I have to have a son and it's a chubby kid, my mother is always like, 'You were never like that.' She gets so upset about it.
12 I've always had something in my heart where I root for guys who struggle with women.
13 I'm not a Hollywood guy.
14 I would always love to be an athlete, but it's got to be a tough day when you have to hang up those cleats.
15 I try to connect with the everyday, every guy.
16 I took a public speaking class in college and managed to make the class laugh a little bit.
17 I think I invented the phrase 'Don't overdo it.'
18 I really wasn't a class clown.
19 I never played music, but it's an important thing ... the studying, the inspiration.
20 I never played a musical instrument growing up but I knew kids who did and took it very seriously.
21 I had my boy in Boston on Easter Sunday. That kills me, from a sports perspective. He's a Boston baby and I'm a New York guy.
22 I don't want to be known as this goody-two-shoes who can only do comedies where puppies are licking peanut butter off my face.
23 I could never be James Bond.
24 From there, I tried out for a community theatre play, joined an improv group... it all started opening up.
25 For some reason and I don't know why, but I don't think that I'm funny in California. So I always want to do my movies east somewhere.
26 Every time I do a movie where it gets physical, I say never again.
27 Every few months I'll pop into a comedy club or go to Vegas.
28 Back in '93 I saw my first UFC fight and just became enamored by it then.
29 A song can take you to a special time in your life.
30 I just want to put some positive stuff out there. If it works, great. If it doesn't, no problem.
31 I had many teachers that were great, positive role models and taught me to be a good person and stand up and be a good man. A lot of the principles they taught me still affect how I act sometimes and it's 30 years later.
32 Thanksgiving, man. Not a good day to be my pants.
33 There's no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.
34 It was fun because, after shooting, Will and I would eat a jar of pickles and tell each other secrets. It was so much fun! - On Hitch (2005).
