It used to reflect a budget. Now 'independent film' means anything under $10 million. That's what people are saying now. But, that's not really true. I think independent films means you did everything independently.

I think that parents only get so offended by television because they rely on it as a babysitter and the sole educator of their kids.

I love life...Yeah, I'm sad, but at the same time, I'm really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It's like...It makes me feel alive, you know. It makes me feel human. The only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt something really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good. So I guess what I'm feeling is like a beautiful sadness.

The best way to try to motivate somebody is by being direct with them. To be honest with them. Lies are never the right way to get your message across.

The truth is, marijuana probably isn't going to make you kill people. Most likely isn't going to fund terrorists, but pot makes you feel fine with being bored and it's when you're bored that you should be learning a new skill or some new science or being creative. If you smoke pot you may grow up to find out that you're not good at anything.

Love isn't a decision. It's a feeling. If we could decide who we loved, it would be much simpler, but much less magical.

Living is having ups and downs and sharing them with friends.

We never set out to do a topical show.

You know, I think that if parents would spend less time worrying about what their kids watch on TV and more time worrying about what's going on in their kids' lives, this world would be a much better place.

He was a good kid. Very, very sensitive.

We thought he could pull it off and he would get it, and not cheese it up too much.

Sometimes what's right isn't as important as what's profitable.

I've learned that all a person has in life is family and friends. If you lose those, you have nothing, so friends are to be treasured more than anything else in the world.

I think people that have a brother or sister don't realize how lucky they are. Sure, they fight a lot, but to know that there's always somebody there, somebody that's family.

[Seven years ago, the pair says they submitted a film to Sundance and didn't even get a rejection letter after paying the $50 entrance fee.] The time when we needed Sundance was when no one knew who the hell we were, and we had this film we wanted people to see, ... When we needed it most it wasn't there, and when we needed it the least they were all over us.

Not only do our friends see us having a beer often, they catch us skiing together. It's embarrassing!

I knew he was sensitive so I was particular when I criticized. I made certain to offer the positive afterwards.

I just realized that there's going to be a lot of painful times in life, so I better learn to deal with it the right way.

I am proud as hell of them. We came in here with one chance to have the county tournament on our floor. Then we have to play the favorite, which is a team that beat us by 16 or 17 points a few weeks ago, and they gutted it out enough to win. We didn't play that good, but we gutted out the win.

Saying goodbye doesn't mean anything. It's the time we spent together that matters, not how we left it.

We tried to stay true to the Thunderbirds. We don't use any computers in this movie, it's all painfully real.

Careful?! Was my mother careful when she stabbed me in the heart with a coat hanger while I was still in womb?

Manufacturers are still trying to define the crossover vehicle, and we will continue to see a variety of crossover vehicles enter the marketplace. No one wants to be just a minivan or a sedan owner anymore.

Family isn't about whose blood you have. It's about who you care about.

It was a wing and a prayer. We're a Catholic school, so it had to be answered.

We're not ashamed of our bodies, ... This event is the most important thing in the world.

I can totally see why Ricky would be bummed about people accusing him of stealing an idea he came up with himself. But this is a matter of people having the same idea, and I assure you we weren't aware of the movie when we did that episode. And I don't agree with Peter's point that you should back off if you have an idea and find someone else has it too.

It's ... just going to be a total trip, and I'm just going to enjoy it, ... Because I'm sure I'll never be back.

Good hearted, he was happy, but he had been having a little tougher time lately with school.
