There's something very refreshing about being on stage.More Paul Reiser quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most challenging part of being a dad is trying to postpone the moment when they realize you don't know anything. I love any sentence that begins with Daddy...? because it's implied they're looking up to you - that you'll have the answer. The truth is, I don't have any answers.More Paul Reiser quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
By shrewdly linking procreation to an act likely to make you stupid with excitement, God has seen to it that Life does indeed go on. It's possible, by the way, that this is why God's name comes up so often in the middle of the act; it's a salute to the author: Hey, whoever made this up - thanks.More Paul Reiser quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We have such a long, familiar history with Peter Falk. The minute his mug is on that screen people smile.More Paul Reiser quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
From the minute we're born, boys and girls stare at each other, trying to figure out if they like what they see. Like parade lines, passing each other for mutual inspection. You march, you look. You march, you look. If you're interested, you stop and talk, and if it doesn't work out, you just get back in the parade. You keep marching, and you keep looking.More Paul Reiser quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
