    • Joey McIntyre: I like steady relationships. By that I mean relationships that are balanced, where the guy isn't superior to the girl, where two people share everything. My perfect date would include a romantic dinner just for two, then maybe afterward we'd go to the theatre and see a play or a movie. Then after that, we would go for a walk. Yeah! Especially if it were on an autumn night in Boston. I love fall! I'd be all cozy in my jacket, and my date and I would walk hand-in-hand by the Charles River in Boston.

    • Joey McIntyre: (on his audition for the New Kids) I tried out on Father's Day, June 15, 1985. Mary picked me up and I was really scared. I went to Maurice's (Starr) house and tried out. I sang one of the songs the group was about to record and afterwards we got in the car and Mary asked me, 'Well, do you want to be in the group? You've got the part.' And I said, 'Yeah, here I am,' and we recorded the songs.

    • Joey McIntyre: (on fame and Hollywood) If you're going to have a chip on your shoulder in this business, you'll have no shoulders left at the end of the day.

    • Joey McIntyre: (on gay marriage) I support gay marriage. I don't see the big deal. It's really ridiculous. My mother raised me Catholic, and I think the teachings of Jesus Christ have made me a caring person. And in my family, we have blacks, Jews and gays. I was brought up to follow what Jesus said: Love your neighbor, period.
