  • Quotes

    • (about his motorcycle accident), Bug: It was about 9:30 at night. Someone took a left, not paying attention, and hit me. I went through the side of the windshield, over the top of the van, and ended up in the hospital for about two weeks.

    • Bug: High school was tough because I demanded to be in public schools when not working. I did not want to be home-schooled. I did end up jumping around to a lot of different high schools. I ended up graduating a little early from East Bay in Florida.

    • Bug: I had no time to get prepared [for the movie Footsteps]. I found out I got the job only a week before we started filming.

    • (About shooting the movie, Footsteeps)
      Bug: I got to see snow for the first time as well. I grew up in Texas. I also got to go sledding for the first time. Since I had never been before, I didn't know how to do it or what to wear. I wore just jeans and a T-shirt. That wasn't a good idea. I ended up falling and my hands were all blistered.

    • Bug: John Badham is a really amazing director. He influenced me quite a bit. We sat around and discussed different movies for hours.

    • Bug:[My buddies and I]heard about the audition for The Little Rascals. My mother owned a day care, so I grew up watching them. We were able to talk by mom into taking us to the audition. It took some convincing because she did want any of us to get our hopes up. I told her that I was going to take a cab if she didn't drive me. Of course, at eight, there was no way I could afford to do that. I pulled the cab line and it worked. So she took me out there and three auditions later they were flying me to California. They put me up at the Universal Sheraton. I had never even been out of Texas before then.

    • About Candice Bergen Bug: She is a very talented actress. Working with her was definitely a privilege.
