#Quote
1[on his breakout role as Crocodile Dundee] The movie scene is screaming out for the movie hero who doesn't kill 75 people... less of those commandos, terminators, ex-terminators and squashers. Mick's a good role model. There's no malice in the fellow and he's human. He's not a wimp or a sissy just because he doesn't kill people.
2I enjoy being part of the entertainment industry, although I'm the laziest person that I've met yet in this business.
3Come and say G'day! I'll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you!
4What career? A man's got a body of film of about four movies in about 10 years or something. I do it because I think I can do a good job of something and I'll enjoy it, do it, and sort of vanish. I don't want to be an actor for hire.
5Cricket needs brightening up a bit. My solution is to let the players drink at the beginning of the game, not after. It always works in our picnic matches.
6The secret to my success is that I bit off more than I could chew and chewed as fast as I could.
7You're here to sweat. This program is live. There's about one thousand million people watching you. So you remember - one wrong word, one foolish gesture and your whole career could go down in flames. Hold that thought and have a nice night.
8I didn't get into entertainment until I was like 31. I didn't star in a movie until I was 46.
9I only work every couple of years. I go into retirement between films.
10Well, there's nothing strange about Americans as a whole. But Angelinos are different!
11[speech at the Academy Awards] There are three Gs to accepting an award: Be Gracious ... Be Grateful ... and Get Off!
