  • Luke: I want to spend my last dollar on my last day. Either that or leave $88 million to Anna Nicole Smith.

  • Luke Perry: (when asked what he was like in high school) My high school was nothing like West Beverly High, let me tell you. I grew up in Fredericktown, Ohio. It was a small town [population 2,300]. I didn't do that well in school, although I was voted "The Biggest Flirt." I played sports I was on the tennis team and also the baseball team. But the coolest thing I did was that I dressed up as our school mascot, Freddie Bird, for all of the football games. My step-father had a helicopter and I got the helicopter to drop me onto the football field. It was cool.

  • Luke Perry: Growing up in the Midwest, people don't drive Porsches and Ferraris. They drive Fords and Chevys. And so even if you have the opportunity to buy a more expensive car, it doesn't occur to you because it's not what you relate to. At a restaurant, you don't look to order the thing you can't pronounce because that's not what makes sense to you. A lot of times, people forget what makes sense to them and what, in effect, got them where they are, and I think they go a little astray.

  • Luke Perry: I go bungee-jumping with Jason (Priestley.) Go camping. I go four- wheeling in my truck. I also like to fish, cook, do stuff around my house. I even studied fencing for awhile.

  • Luke Perry: (what he'd want to be if he wasn't an actor) I've had tons of odd jobs, but I think that I would probably be a fireman because you get to see the results of your job. You get there and there is a house on fire. You leave and there's not a fire anymore.

  • Luke Perry: (when asked if he liked being famous) It's hard and sometimes it's scary. It still amazes my mother. I went home for Christmas one year and there were fans all over the front lawn, hoping to see me.

  • Luke: (when asked what'd he do with $20 million) I'd disappear. You wouldn't see me again. The world everyday is becoming more and more of a place I'd like to disappear from. So I think if I had 20 million bucks, I'd take the opportunity and do that.
