  • Bill: (On his show, "Fastlane") It's absolutely a full-on, turbo-speed cop show. It's a buddy cop show with the energy of a Miami Vice meets 48 Hours meets Lethal Weapon. We have hot cars, a hot city like L.A., beautiful, sultry women coming in and out of our lives -- some bad, some good. Incredibly bad men who we're trying to bring down. We're trying to bring down the men who think they have it going on. The think they're bigger than the system, and we're bringin' 'em down.

  • Bill: (On Best and Worst videos of all time) Best "Thriller," Worst Weird Al Yankovic. I never got him [singing] "eat it" That was whack.

  • Bill: (On Jenny McCarthy) I remember when we first met, we had to change in the bathroom together. We were doing the MTV Beach House, and we had to get ready to do another show. I was getting changed in the bathroom and they were rushing her, so we both had to do it at like the same time. So she was like, 'is it cool with you?' and I was like, 'it's cool with me, if it's cool with you. Let's go.'

  • Bill: (On Jenny McCarthy) Oh my god, Jenny McCarthy is the coolest chick. She's the kind of girl you can play volleyball with and she's diggin' it out in the dirt. She's the girl that's playing softball -- not worrying about breaking a nail. She's out there breaking nails and diving at second. And then, she's going to out-drink you at the bar.

  • Bill: (On being an MTV VeeJay) Yeah, everybody wanted my job. [In the voice of a 13 year old girl that just saw a Backstreet Boy] "I need that job!" Everybody asked me how I got it, and I was like, 'I don't know.' I was in a comedy club doin jokes and this lady came up and asked me if I knew anything about music, and I was like, 'yeah, I love music,' and she asked me if I would be interested in hosting a show. That lady happened to be Tracy Jordan, the VP of talent relations for MTV. She gave me my first on-air job.

  • Bill: (On "discovering" when he could make people laugh) I think it go serious in college when I found out I really enjoyed making people laugh. It makes me happy. I said, "I wanna be a comedian, I wanna get good.' You're not good in the beginning. You're still trying to figure out what the things are that you are going to talk about, what your angle is going to be and there's a lot of trial and error. I just never gave up and that was the beginning of my career. Just experimenting, trying it out and falling in love with it.

  • Bill: (On wearing a speedo in a male beauty pageant) Yeah, I had to wear a speedo! And I must have weighed like a buck thirty, lookin' like I was in dire need of a serious turkey dinner. I went out on a limb. I was not Mr. Sexy at all -- I was very skinny and boney.
