Paul Reiser

I remember my wife and I used to get on plane and see everybody else with their babies. They'd be putting strollers and car seats up above, and we'd think: Oh, please Lord, don't make us go through that.More Paul Reiser [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In the original draft I was 27 and Peter was 55 in the script. That's not the same as a guy in his 40s and a dad in the end of his 70s. It's a different point in both our lives.More Paul Reiser [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In fact, I had the idea because of Peter Falk. I saw my dad watching a Peter Falk movie and something clicked in my head. I gotta go make a movie for Peter Falk and me.More Paul Reiser [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
And in that time, I lost my dad and had kids of my own. It was like, OK, I get it now. I know what fatherhood is all about. And you look at your parents differently.More Paul Reiser [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Field of Dreams is the only movie - and I saw it in the theater - on an afternoon when I was on location somewhere, and there were like 12 people in the theater. I was just so devastated I couldn't get out of my seat. And I sat and watched it a second time.More Paul Reiser [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
We have such a long, familiar history with Peter Falk. The minute his mug is on that screen people smile.More Paul Reiser [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
People often ask me, "What's the difference between couplehood and babyhood?" In a word? Moisture. Everything in my life is now more moist. Between your spittle, your diapers, your spit-up and drool, you got your baby food, your wipes, your formula, your leaky bottles, sweaty baby backs, and numerous other untraceable sources-all creating an ever-present moistness in my life, which heretofore was mainly dry.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The biggest thing I remember is that there was just no transition. You hit the ground diapering.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The jewel in the baby product crown is the stroller. And if in America you are what you drive, then in Parentland, you are what you push.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Upstate New York in the middle of October. You can't get more beautiful than that.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Having a baby dragged me, kicking and screaming, from the world of self-absorption.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But the two of them together, broke my heart. Olympia and Peter, those scenes... When they're kissing in their 20s and then kissing in their 70s, that's what it is. And they had never met five minutes before they shot those scenes.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are two types of people in life - those who get it and those who don't.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
He was born early. But he was born within a safe range of premature.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the original draft I was 27 and Peter was 55 in the script. That's not the same as a guy in his 40s and a dad in the end of his 70s. It's a different point in both our lives.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
She kind of reminds one of Helen. There's something very similar about Elizabeth Perkins.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We had the boy's name picked out, but we didn't have a girl's. When he turned out to be a boy, we were so relieved. Literally, in the middle of contracting and pushing, and with my wife being drugged - out and half - lucid, we were still coming up with names.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
So where did these cravings come from? I concluded it's the baby ordering in. Prenatal takeout. Even without ever being in a restaurant, fetuses develop remarkably discerning palates, and they are not shy about demanding what they want. If they get a hankering, they just pick up the umbilical cord and call. 'You know what would taste good right now? A cheeseburger, large fries, and a vanilla shake. And if you could, hurry it up, because I'm supposed to grow a lung in a half hour.'More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They're not the sharpest people - babies. So, you must be everything to them.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sometimes it works out well, and certain household responsibilities fall naturally to those who like doing them. For example, my wife likes to pack suitcases, I like to unpack them. My wife likes to buy groceries, I like to put them away. I do. I like the handling and discovering, and the location assignments. Cans - over there. Fruit - over there. Bananas - not so fast. You go over here. When you learn not to go bad so quickly, then you can stay with the rest of your friends.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the history of life, no good news has followed that sentence ["We have to talk."].More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There's something that happens in that delivery room, when a woman becomes ten times more a woman, and a guy becomes six times less a man. You feel really dopey and useless and like a spectator. I did, anyway.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Marriage is just an elaborate game that allows two selfish people to periodically feel that they're not.More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Two or three times a week, I drive by the houses of numbers 78-100 just to rub it in,More Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nothing would make me happier if Peter Falk would finally win his Oscar for this. Not just as the writer but as a fan and a friend. It would be so greatMore Paul Reiser [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
