Quotes (7)

  • Vincent: Yeah, I mean there's some of me in that character, but no I'm a very light hearted person in most circumstances. I should say, on the exterior, I'm a very light person. I tend to like to make jokes and I'm sarcastic and I'd like to think I'm witty and funny and I don't take myself seriously. But I also have that other side of me when I feel I've been improperly treated or if I feel I'm not happy with something I've done and I'm not happy with myself. I think everyone has more than one side to them.

  • Vincent: Oh my god! The people are great and I was terrified that I was going to show up and meet this bunch of nerdy people, but they're great! They're regular people, they're lovely people. You know, 99% of them were completely respectful of our time and personal space and are really good people who like the show a lot, and that's terrific.

  • Vincent: I'm watching my first episode, and they're all talking about what's to come, something very dangerous--the destroyer. And then I appear, this little Peter Pan gone bad. And even Amy Acker is like, 'Yeah, I don't look so thin now, do I?'.

  • Vincent Kartheiser: For some reason I think words don't quite work when you're trying to explain the facts of life and what it means to be a suffering human.

  • Vincent Kartheiser: I'm with my mom so much that it's like if we go out to eat somewhere, we probably say ten sentences to each other. We're like an old couple. There's nothing that we have to say. It's okay to sit there and just be.

  • Vincent Kartheiser: I was such a nerd when I was younger and I may look different now and girls may like me, but I still feel like that nerd.
