1 If I tell a joke that's not so funny, I have a faster-than-sound plane which shoots it down before it reaches San Francisco.
2 Eventually, what you're looking for is gonna happen, and by the time it does happen, you'll be that much better along the way to what you should be. Don't get discouraged, and just keep on plugging along, and what you want will eventually be yours. You know, there's nothing to stop it if you just keep on working hard. And by working hard, I mean doing the best job you possibly can. Everything happens for the best, and I believe it completely.
3 When I was a kid, I fell in love with Spencer Tracy in "Captains Courageous." That, to me, was the ideal. A good man, a brave man. What I would want to be. I'm still in love with that.
4 It's not a concentration camp. It's a POW camp. We're not making light of atrocities. We're just trying to show how darn clever the Americans were. It was easy to see which letter writers hadn't watched the program. No one could see "Hogan's Heroes" and think we were making fun of war. Our comedy is done with characterization. It's outsmarting the boss; it's the kid with a snowball when the top hat goes by; it's getting the best of authority.
5 The first station I started out with was a 250-watt station. I went to a 1,000-watt station, which was the Bridgeport station... And from the 1,000-watt, I went to the 50,000-watt, which is quite a jump, and it has happened to a lot of people. It's a fortunate thing to be in the right place at the right time.
6 I don't smoke, I don't drink. Two out of three ain't bad.
