#Quote
1I guess I work well with others I handle younger actors well.
2I never learned to cook; I was a little spoiled as far as that's concerned.
3I started in radio, again accidentally. I wasn't looking for this kind of work at all.
4I've dodged bullets but there's no scandal in my life.
5I work with Garry no matter what. What I wanted to keep going was the streak.
6On those, I've said it before, I work free. It's the waiting they pay me for.
7You're at the top of your game if you do comedy.
8Yes, and it's my third movie with Richard. American Gigolo was my first.
9You can trust a Neil Simon script. Every dot. Every dash; that pause means something. He takes all the jokes out, practically.
10You know, a low budget, you have to work harder. You have to plan well; you don't have much time to rehearse.
11Food is a passion. Food is love.
12Pretty Woman was the easiest job I've ever done. I just wore the right toupee.
13Which reminds me of a fortune cookie: you often find your destiny on the path you take to avoid it.
14I love the fact that it starts from there, and you don't know where it's gonna go. Wait long enough - love will find you. Everything's a surprise. When you think you've got it all figured out... as Emerson said, the dice of God are always loaded.
15The fact that that's the difference between Mexicans and Cubans is pronounced. It's so immediately recognizable, the way a Cuban speaks, the way a Cuban moves the hands.
16I'm a parent, especially when you've had the intense parenting the way I had. It's all in the bank. It's all in the great experience bank. Those are your secrets. That's the stuff that makes your work rich, that's what you dip into.
17I'm attracted to pathos, because life is mostly pathos. I've had a lot of it in my life.
18I think you can tell the human condition better through comedy.
19Sometimes I just walk through; I just show up, as in The Other Sister.
20Definitely not a sitcom, that's my first condition. No sitcoms.
21I used to work, part time, in a deli, in those days when your parents made you work just so you should know what work was like. And you'd make 4, 5, 6, ten dollars.
22I started in 1946 in radio. I was ten years old. I was discovered singing in a school play. Someone was in the audience and it's six degrees of separation.
