Matt: (asked if he was familiar with Motley Crue before becoming Tommy Lee's roommate) Yeah. I wasn't a super fan or anything. Everybody knows a few of their songs. Obviously the ones that everybody knows, I like.
Matt: (about UN-L Chancellor Harvey Perlman's wisdom in allowing his campus to be the setting for "Tommy Lee Goes to College") Everyone thought Perlman was taking a big risk, but I think he knew what he was doing.
