    • The Pivot Questionnaire: - What is your favorite word? Saga, well yes. You know, we have a lot of kids and we for some reason developed a language all of our own. We call it Hoffitalk, and Saga is everything wonderful - What is your least favorite word? It's 3 words that we usually use as one, Woulda, shoulda, coulda. That hurts more than anything, I think to all of us - What turns you on? Seeing someone whether I know or I don't, male or female, who is completely out of control laughing - What turns you off? You see it, when you are outside in the streets, in the park and you see a parent with a little kid, yanking the kid around, pulling him. There's nothing worse than that - What sound or noise do you love? Everyone laughing They answered it, there's nothing better. Collectiveness, the sound of collective joy, and sharing the same information - What sound or noise do you hate? Anything that resembles shut-up - What is your favorite curse word? I worked on Little Big Man many years ago and I heard some guy curse another guy and he called him a smooth-balled-needle-pr**k-butt-f**ker. No one's ever gonna better that - What profession other than yours would you like to attempt? Well, music. I mean, particularly in the arts where you don't need a kind of a collective joining, like you do in a movie or a play - What profession other than yours would you not like to attempt? I don't wanna be a hunter - If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? I loved what DeNiro said. DeNiro said, "Well, here's a guy who've got a lot of explaining to do". But the first one that came to my mind is, That's funny, you don't look Jewish
