Personal Quote:

We were very serious, damn serious, and we'd sit there sweating and fighting over lines, and then we started to laugh hysterically. We always quit because we knew the following day we'd come back and say 'What's funny about that?' Comedy is very fragile. The words are important. There is rhythm, and we don't want anybody changing lines. It's written in stone. See more »
