#Quote
1Nobody would hire me after The A-Team (1983). I was too closely associated and it was a stupid show. The industry didn't like it. None of us went on and had a career after that: George, Dwight, Mr T. We were not well-loved. But doing Battlestar and the A team were, professionally, the best times of my life. Everything after that was so pale and boring, which I think was why I never really cared if I did another TV series.
2[on Battlestar Galactica (2003)] It wasn't the show I made. I played an iconic character, but they turned him into a girl! When you do Star Wars you don't turn Han Solo into a girl, Hannah Solo. When you do Rio Bravo (1959) you don't have Madonna get her boots out to play John Wayne. Create another character instead.
3[on his cameo in The A-Team (2010)] I regret doing it. Mr. T was right not to do it, they got rid of all the qualities that made it such an international hit ... it was like someone said, 'let's find everything that really made this show unique and get rid of that and just make kind of an average action movie'.
4The female decides! The man may do his courting, dance, woo, cavort and strut his macho stuff...but it is the woman who decides.
5I have long held the belief that men must take responsibility for their ejaculations. But alas, we can only do so if given the chance.
6Men create havoc. But women have the power of procreation, connection to the continuum of the universe, the creation of world harmony, health, happiness, and order.
7[on Battlestar Galactica (2003)] Women are from Venus. Men are from Mars. Hamlet does not scan as Hamletta. Nor does Han Solo as Han Sally. Faceman is not the same as Facewoman. Nor does a Stardoe a Starbuck make. Men hand out cigars. Women "hand out" babies. And thus the world, for thousands of years, has gone round.
8I'm only proud of two things in my life; one is my children, the second is my first book.
9[on making The A-Team (1983)] The problem is that the people who created the show had no idea what it was. They didn't understand what the show was because it became something other than what they intended. The network hated us; the people in authority were like the military in the show, trying to control us. We took control of it. We made it much funnier than it was, and we made it much more politically incorrect than it was intended to be. All the liberals in Hollywood hated it; they hated the cigars, the guns, the bravado and the fact we always thought we were right.
10[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.
