Michael: when I have a rough day I come home and pop a little Chris Cross into the stereo, and it makes me feel a lot better.
Michael: (comparing himself to Lex Luthor) Lex is a businessman, but he's not without feelings. He's someone who is willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. If you cross him, though, you've made a big mistake. I tend to be the same way. I give people my heart and my full attention. I treat everyone as a friend, but if they betray me, that's it. They're out of my life in one way or another.

Michael: (on having a Hollywood lifestyle) If you call flag football, Karaoke and ice hockey a Hollywood lifestyle... then, yes.
