Personal Quotes (2)

You don't have an enormous talent like that without having integrity nailed to your soul and humanity along with it. * - Robert Clouthier, "Beachcombers" co-star
[on hosting 'Celebrity Cooks']: I was once mixing something in a high-speed mixer and forgot to put the lid on. I just lost my concentration, and when I turned the thing on, stuff shot up in the air and came down on my head and all over my shoulders. It looked like a flock of seagulls had just flown over me and made their deposits.
