Quotes of Corbin Bernsen

1[In a chat with Conan O'Brien, said playfully] Most women in the business sneak off to Costa Rica and return with a new younger face, but no my mother has hers done live on TV and has it written into her script.
2They sent me some tapes of the original Mole and I thought it was pretty intriguing. I'm sort of an experimenter; I thought it'd be interesting to play around and see what's there. It was fun. Turned out to be good.
3Yeah, I think if I were to go again, I'd try to go more on gut feelings and stick with it. I was on to Frederique. I found clues for everything, I found tons of stuff.
4There's nothing like coming home here, having the day off or morning off and going surfing. In Orlando I don't know what I would do.
5We need a space program because we need explorers. It's in our souls.
6Well, acting was just in me and I tried to avoid it. I didn't want to do what my parents did, you know?
7I'm very much looking forward to my 30-40 years of acting, and, as I get older, I'm really looking forward to some of the roles that are out there to play.
8Taking employment out of the country - now that's taking away jobs. These shows employ a lot of people: production, post-production, music supervisors, camera people. A hundred people or more.
9I'd like to direct some, act in some of them, and produce.
10I'm sort of an experimenter; I thought it'd be interesting to play around and see what's there.
11In daytime, they're doing 50-60 pages a day, whereas nighttime, you do seven or eight.
12It's a great counter to doing the soap because it's a comedy. It's real physical comedy.
13It's an addictive thing. It's not so much I like to go win, but it's a rush.
14I love to entertain, I love to make people laugh, cry, and move them, perhaps moving them in their lives.
15If we stop exploring space, we're going to lose the same part of us that found vaccines and penicillin, the part that searches for cures to cancer and AIDS.
16It's not so much I like to go win, but it's a rush. A horrible gut wrenching thing, but it's exciting.
17I have to say, though, it's a little strange doing both because Durant is very straight and stern and austere.
18I saw the excitement, going to different places, being able to explore emotion in a healthy way.
