"When I was a kid I didn't feel like I fit in because - this is really silly and I probably shouldn't say it, but, I didn't think anything was funny. So I used to go home and literally cry to my mom and my step-dad at the time and I didn't think anything was funny. I couldn't laugh."

"I'm at peace with myself and where I am. In the past, I was always looking to see how everybody else was doing. I wasn't competitive, I was comparative. I just wanted to be where everybody else was. Now I've gotten to an age when I am not comparing anymore."
"I think it's hard, the fact that there's a certain age that we can't have kids anymore."
"A lot of my humor does come from anger. It's like, you're not gonna pull one over on me - which is pretty much my motto anyways."
"At one point my dad called me and said, 'You have always been a great salesman. I think it's time you come home and sell swimming pools.'"
"You know, my mother's beautiful, my dad was a really handsome man, and there was a lot of talk about looks when I was growing up."
