“I can’t hit on a girl in public like I used to. I never thought words like ‘undignified’ would come into my own reflections on myself, but I can’t do it anymore.” Jack Nicholson [AP]

“In an upcoming episode, there’s a rather long scene where we’re trying to find out which deputy is sticking his wiener in the peanut butter that’s in the break room at the station. I don’t think there’s any other show on cable or even network that is addressing those sorts of hard-hitting subjects.” Thomas Lennon on why Reno 911! continues to be successful after four seasons [TV Guide]

“I can’t think of anyone off the top of my head. As long as she’s as funny as Meg is, that’s all that really matters. It’s really a lightning-in-a-bottle kind of thing — you have to catch it when it hits. And sometimes it doesn’t, as Joe Versus the Volcano really points out.” Colin Hanks on whom he’d cast as his Meg Ryan [BlackBook]

“Owen Wilson is still a very close friend. Honestly, he’s the nicest, smartest, greatest guy in the world. I don’t really know what happened to him, truthfully, and I don’t really care.” Vince Vaughn, who apparently doesn’t keep close tabs on his suicidal friends [Parade]

“If you’re going to have an artistic partner, it needs to be someone you can absolutely strip. You know what I mean? I don’t mean literally, but you need to be able to strip them down and be very straight with them.” —Once’s Glen Hansard on his writing partner and girlfriend Marketa Irglova [A.V. Club]
