    • Angus T. Jones: (about "Two and a Half Men") I feel really lucky to be on the show every episode and get a lot of really funny lines. What's not to like? I'm learning a lot about comedy, and everyone is just hilarious. Sometimes the hardest thing for me is not to laugh.

    • Jon Cryer: (on Angus) He’s a very instinctive actor - and I think he’s enjoying just being a part of the learning. In the first season, he wasn’t even sure he wanted to be an actor when he grew up, and I think he’s sort of come around to feeling like that’s what he wants to do. And I attribute that to his admiration of me!

    • Charlie Sheen: (on Angus) He’s more like a younger brother. He’s so smart, He’s so well-adjusted and focused, and he reminds us that we need to enjoy this. He’s a real special kid. There’s nothing Hollywood or affected about him. He has a regular life away from here - regular friends, a regular school and regular interests - and I think he just sees this as a job - a very unique job. We have a lot of fun.

    • Angus T. Jones: (About Jake's relationship with Charlie in Two and a Half Men) He likes him a lot, he does stuff for him. He buys Jake a lot of foods that I want and wouldn’t usually get.

    • Angus T. Jones: (About Jake's relationship with his dad in Two and a Half Men) Yeah I think his dads going to get a lot cooler, hes going to get a little bit more like Uncle Charlie and Jakes going to start liking him a lot.
