„I think the reason I choose the comic approach so often is because it's harder, therefore affording me the opportunity to show off.“

Starting from Scratch (1989)
Контексте: I think the reason I choose the comic approach so often is because it's harder, therefore affording me the opportunity to show off. Also, a comic vision is my natural world view, but I've grown up in spite of myself and I can pass the comic twist if it detracts from what the characters need. Yes, the life of a saint is hard.
