    • John: I have four kids, so it's not very difficult. There is an authority that was dealt to me by the people I work with. Not that my parents didn't have authority, but when I first got into television with The Dukes of Hazzard, I had Jimmy Best, Denver Pyle, and many older gentlemen who would never pussyfoot around an issue. So, I was kind of raised on that, and that's what I think I bring to Jonathan Kent pretty naturally.

    • John: (About Collier and Co.) Hollywood doesn't have a lot of respect for Dukes of Hazzard fans, so I had to make this movie myself.

    • John: The sole purpose of my production company is to work on shows with strong family values.

    • John Schneider: (about his character on Smallville) You'd find a lot of similarities between Jonathan Kent and John Schneider. Totally. I'm a very loving, but strict parent. [I] had fun on Smallville, and I have fun with my kids as well. I think you need to play with them, as much as you correct them. But, I'm a parent; I'm not a pal.

    • John Schneider: (about the 100th episode of Smallville, which was John's character was killed off) Doing it, it felt like our best show. And I thought that the Smallville pilot was the best hour of television I'd ever seen. This, I think, beats it.

    • John Scneider : I just told Seann he did a really good job as Bo, ... He's got that wild-man thing going, which is what we had when we first started the show.
