[on his catchphrase] Those were actually the very first words I ever said on screen (in Dazed and Confused (1993)). "Alright, alright, alright." And do you know why I said 'alright' three times? I'm going to give you a callback to something I said five minutes ago. Because I'm in my car, I'm high, I've got my rock 'n' roll, but I don't have the chick. So I got three out of four that matter to me.... See more »
