    • Eddie: (about using Second Life)I'm terrified of it! I don't even go on MySpace, let alone a whole universe like Second Life. In terms of content, I thought the episode was really current. I liked that, and I like the idea that that may come back, that we've still got one killer that's at large. I think it's fun. To me that's a real entertaining.

    • Eddie: (About his appreciation for hockey while filming Miracle) The first time I put the pads on was actually at the final audition for the movie, which was a game that we played. I myself didn’t have an appreciation for the physicality having never done it. The economy of motion is so small but so concentrated. [It’s] so compact and you have to do so many things at once. You have to be incredibly focused, so relaxed, so fast, and I don’t know how to describe it other than it’s more than I’ve ever sweat in my entire life. It’s more than my legs have ever done in my entire life, no matter how far I ran, getting across that crease for the first time was quite an endeavor.

    • Eddie: It doesn't hurt if a woman has a good butt, but a point of view is what will matter when you're 70.

    • Eddie: In the first script, the word putrefaction came up, I made the mistake of looking it up on the Internet, it came with pictures, that was the most grossed out I've been. (on his first CSI NY sctipt).

    • Eddie: I'll stay with the show for as long as they'll have me! I envision staying with the show for as long as the show goes.(Referring to his role on CSI NY).
