Zitat des Tages von Larry David:
Drugs scared me.
At first, I didn't realize it was gonna be a character. I just thought I was gonna be doing me.
I'm anti-cheese in a salad.
I've led this empty life for over forty years and now I can pass that heritage on and ensure that the misery will continue for at least one more generation.
It's that I wasn't suited to do the kind of comedy that these people were coming to hear - mainstream comedy.
There's nothing that reflects me. I'm unreflectable!
Hear the birds? Sometimes I like to pretend that I'm deaf and I try to imagine what it's like not to be able to hear them. It's not that bad.
I tolerate lactose like I tolerate people.
I believe in something.
I don't really know much about TV and what people want to see. I'm not that well-informed about it.
Even back then, I exuded self-confidence, and that drives women crazy.
If I tried to flirt with a woman and she didn't know who I was, she would run away.
OK, I'm happy. I'm happy. All right? I'm happy.
Well, as you know, I'm really only happy when I'm on stage.
Actually I walk around with the Emmy wherever I go, but I'm very casual about it.
I'm a walking, talking enigma.
The best situation is being a single parent. The best part about is that you get time off, too, because the kids are with their mom, so it's the best of both worlds. There's a lot to be said for it.
The only change I can really see is that I don't have to shop for pants in stores anymore.
Until I started doing standup, there were some very bleak days.
I think golf is literally an addiction. I'm surprised there's not Golf Anonymous.
I don't write shows with dialogue where actors have to memorize dialogue. I write the scenes where we know everything that's going to happen. There's an outline of about seven or eight pages, and then we improvise it.
I don't like people cleaning my room.
It has to do - I think - with growing up in an apartment, with my aunt and my cousins right next door to me, with the door open, with neighbors walking in and out, with people yelling at each other all the time.
It began to dawn on me that perhaps my country needed me more at home than overseas.
I had a job as a paralegal. I drove a cab.
I had a wonderful childhood, which is tough because it's hard to adjust to a miserable adulthood.
I wanted to make a living, but I really was not interested in money at all. I was interested in being a great comedian.
There's a sense of spontaneity, and no emphasis on jokes in this show. People generally talk the way they talk in life if you were in this particular situation.
Once I know people know who I am, it gives me a lot of licence and freedom to behave in ways I wouldn't normally.
When I was living in New York and didn't have a penny to my name, I would walk around the streets and occasionally I would see an alcove or something. And I'd think, that'll be good, that'll be a good spot for me when I'm homeless.
Hey, I may loathe myself, but it has nothing to do with the fact that I'm Jewish.
I gave a funny speech at my wife's birthday party, and I'm thinking, 'Hey, I've still got it.'
Women love a self-confident bald man.
I tell people that I've now done one decent thing in my life. Albeit inadvertently.
You write about what you know.
I couldn't be happier that President Bush has stood up for having served in the National Guard, because I can finally put an end to all those who questioned my motives for enlisting in the Army Reserve at the height of the Vietnam War.
