Rove: (asked what his first thought was when he won a Logie in 2007) I thought Ashton Kutcher was going to come out and say I was punk'd! But when I realised that he wasn't an international guest this year, I figured I was safe.
Rove: Not many people get their soul mate or a love that can withstand just about anything. Not many people find the one person whom they see as a completion in themselves. I had that with Belle as she and I shared some truly amazing times, and I thank her for every blessed moment I got to have with her.
Rove: (About telling his parents he's moving to Melbourne) I'm sure they were thinking, 'Our sons gone mental'.
Rove: (About everybody calling him "Rove") My sister called me that when I was younger and it's what everyone has called me for as long as I can remember. It was just a nickname I was given as a kid and it stuck.
