QuoteYou know, I've never actually really believed that death is inevitable. I just think it's a rumor.Quote

QuoteYes, I always enjoy working on cartoons.Quote

QuoteWhy would you be afraid of death? It would be an inconvenience. I have a lot of undone things and it's bound to get in the way. But, no, it doesn't scare me at all.Quote

QuoteThere's an alternative. There's always a third way, and it's not a combination of the other two ways. It's a different way.Quote

QuoteQuentin is very organic; there was no way that he was going to put someone else's hand in there and anyway, my hands are kind of famous. It seemed right.Quote

QuoteI remember when I did the pilot, and I though no network is going to want to do this. How could that happen? A half Chinese guy walking the old west that doesn't fire one gun and never gets on a horse?Quote

QuoteI like Bill a lot. As Bill is presented, I mean you don't ever see Bill blow her head off? You know? And I think what Quentin has done is he created a monster.Quote

QuoteBut, Tarantino has seen all of my movies. He's seen my good stuff, he's seen my bad stuff, he's seen the ones I directed, he's read my autobiography. There's an awful lot of things he knows about me, all of which I think had something to do with his casting.Quote
