-I’m just as insecure and neurotic and scared and vulnerable as anybody.

(Would he ever consider plastic surgery?)
-No way! I'm finally looking older and inviting my hot

-Mary-Kate and Ashley, who played Michelle, were great. I miss them, I love them, and I need to borrow some money from them.

(About his time on Full House)
-The whole time I was on it, I wished I was on another show, I'm not gonna lie to you. But I look back on it fondly, and I'm proud of it. Was it Seinfeld (1990), Friends (1994), Mary Tyler Moore (1970)? No. Was it a heartwarming show you could watch with your kids? Yes. And there's nothing wrong with that.
