    • Paul: (talking about Little Miss Sunshine) I think I'd be too stubborn and have to do it on my own terms. There's a lot of hope in music and there are some really amazing artists out there, but as far as popular music goes, a lot of it is just not for me. So I don't know where I'd fit in or whatever.

    • Paul: (promoting his movie Little Miss Sunshine) I don't think there's going to be anything else like it this summer. There's something for everybody to take out of this film. This movie really takes you down before it takes you up. Through frustration. Through disappointment. Through tears. Meanwhile, it really takes you on a ride and has a lot of fun along the way.

    • Paul: (talking about his role in Little Miss Sunshine) The thing I took away from this whole silent thing was the ability to listen because it's such an important part of acting.

    • Paul: (On preparing for his role in Little Miss Sunshine) In my house, I tried not talking for a couple days and it was almost impossible to be at a dinner table with my parents and not point out to them what I thought was silly that they were saying. You just want to rebel! It was so difficult.

    • Paul: Everything you do, every experience that you have, enlightens you a little bit or worsens you. L.I.E. was big for me. I think it's one of the best things I've been a part of in my life so far.
