  • Quotes

    • Drake Bell: (On writing "I Know") We do what we're doing now - just hang out, and things just happen. We wrote "I Know" in two hours because C.J. sat down at the piano and started playing and we just went, "What's that?" and it got written from there. I can't really pinpoint who wrote what part of each song, but I always know which parts I did, because they came out of my brain.

    • Drake Bell: (On the girls he would date) "If I date a girl, she's probably not going to be from the Hollywood crowd."

    • Drake Bell: "I am "Mr. Karaoke Guy" in the car completely. I just go with it and don't care what anyone else thinks--I'm singing, man."

    • Drake Bell: (referring to his tour mates) They're all nice people, and they do what they do well, I guess. This isn't my scene though.

    • Drake Bell: I like starting my days with an orange and a smile!

    • Drake Bell: I went to see Paul McCartney of The Beatles and cried during the whole show. If I ever met him, I'd probably faint.

    • Drake Bell: My first kiss was in kindergarten. We didn't know how to kiss! We just kind of slammed our faces together.

    • Drake Bell: Josh Peck is my best friend. I know he will always support me.

    • Drake Bell: (On love) I'm very romantic. I like candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.

    • Drake Bell: (about his worst day) I decided to go for a bike ride. I came out of the alley in front of my house, and was hit by a car... and I had stupidly forgotten to put on my bike helmet! I had scraped up my face pretty badly. I thought I'd have scars for the rest of my life.

    • Drake Bell: I love to perform and I get a kick out of being recognized.

    • Drake Bell: I was five, and my dad kind of said, 'Hey, you wanna be an actor?' and I said, 'Sure,' that kind of thing, you know? I was kind of put into it by my dad but, you know, good. I really love it, and I still do it.

    • Drake Bell: I love the instant gratification of playing live...the energy. And rock star parties are better than actor parties.
