Quotable Quotes:

"[on the The A-Team (1983)] I enjoyed it immensely. By nature I'm terribly serious, so as an actor I tend to want to be silly. It was a comedic show, almost like a cartoon. We just had to hang on to enough reality to make it possible for adults to watch it. The actors I worked with, especially Mr. T and Dwight Schultz, were very funny people. It was pretty much four years of laughter." (IMDB)

"Why do we have to grow up? I know more adults who have the children's approach to life. They're people who don't give a hang what the Jones' do."

"Dirk Benedict was an amazing man. He was a great firefighter, and he was also a great friend. He has passed away, but he will always be remembered. (V)"
