  • Quotes

    • David: The Bundys were a family of exaggerated dysfunction. They weren't educated people, they didn't come from money, and they were more along the lines of White trash.

    • David: I've been really, really, really lucky and blessed in my career. I've been doing it a long time and its been really good to me. I enjoy what I do and I love working in this business.

    • David: Christina and I are still close friends, and I talk to her daily. I am still close with the other Married With Children castmates, but Christina and I have a different kind of friendship. We share the same spiritual beliefs, and basic views on life.

    • David: Being on Married With Children has affected my life because people have discovered me by doing the show. I travel around and meet people. I've learned how to do sitcoms and learned comic timing. It's given me money, so I have a nice house and it affects every part of my life.

    • David: When you are successful and rich at 16 years old you can get away with anything. Women, drugs, everything. It was hard but it doesn't affect me anymore. I have never been into, just a little bit, and today, I want to travel and invest, so being rich is good.

    • David: I think the Bundy's would be cool neighbors to have. You can come and go in and out of their house. Even though they're goofy and wild. I could think of worse neighbors, you could have a grumpy old man next door.

    • David: It's hard to meet a good girl in LA. Especially if you are a successful man. You don't know what they want. You want somebody special, but you never know if she really likes your fame or if she really likes you.

    • David: I missed a lot of my education by being on sets. On the set, you have a teacher for 3 hours a day. You don't really learn; you always wanna go back to the stage or hang around. I never really paid attention.
