1 I was killing the golden goose. I should've kept my mouth shut. (From a 1977 interview with TV Guide in which he made disparaging remarks about television.)
2 I had a pretty snooty attitude about TV. I thought it would always be there and that they would always call me. Well, they don't always call you. You have to reciprocate if they're good enough to give you some work.
