  • Quotes

    • Rob Wells: (On the hit show The Trailer Park Boys being nominated for a Gemini Award) I think it's pretty fucking awesome that we got nominated. It's a low-budget show that makes people laugh, and that's what it comes down to. It's good that we got nominated, but I don't think we have a hope in hell of winning.

    • Rob Wells: (On his The Trailer Park Boys character Ricky getting his grade 11) He's pretty happy getting past grade 10. He would like to further his education at some point. Maybe community college though. I don't know if it's going to be a grade 11 or not. Grade 11 is just too fucking hard. Too much work.

    • Rob Wells: (When asked who Raveen was) That's a great question... Even in Canada, not that many people know who Raveen is. He's a mentalist.

    Keep in mind that this review is based on Wells' character, Ricky, from Trailer Park Boys.Robb Wells' character, Ricky, is a gold mine for funny, misspoken phrases. The character is intended to, and is extremely stupid (spending several seasons trying to get his grade 10). Given his intelligence, his comedic timing and Improvisational skills are incredible, making his character, and the show, a must watch!
