Shawn: We kind of looked at society and turned it into animation. The script (for Scary Movie) is written and now we just have to set it up.
Shawn (about how he likes working with his brothers): We like writing with each other; it's fun.
Shawn: We pay homage to the people who came before, doing satires, like Mel Brooks; we're just carrying the torch.
Shawn (about always being in the publics' eye): You lose your privacy, and sometimes, people don't see you as human.
Shawn (about giving the fans what they want, good comedy): You have to step up to the plate, and then hit one out of the park.
Shawn: Women don't like advice. They don't want you to fix their problems, they just want you to listen.
Shawn: We were raised to look out for one another. Keenen got us early on. He's always been like a brother-father figure to us, from teaching us about women, about the business, acting, writing, everything.
Shawn (about him and his brother's ideas for upcoming movies): The studios want this from us, but it's not all we (him and Marlon) do. So the next couple of movies we have planned, we want to do just a regular, funny comedy.
Shawn (about creating the special effects in "Scary Movie"): There were challenges with production because of the special effects. There are just some things that, although written, special effects just isn't able to do.
Shawn: We had two years to write the first script. It was written while we were taping the Wayans Brothers Show. Scary Movie 2... we wrote while we filmed, promoted, and produced.

Shawn (on how the characters they create and portray are real in life): You know, these types of characters do exist in this world, who make all kinds of unimportant things really, really important, like shopping at Gucci and Prada.
Shawn: We're happy to prove ourselves in any genre. Bottom line is for us to be consistent, be happy, and continue to be funny.
Shawn: We thought it was a rich world, no pun intended, to actually go into and really expose and find the humor in it.
Shawn: We make a family environment, it's fun, everybody knows what needs to be done, Keenen oversees the whole thing, we respect him, he respects us.
Shawn: We have always had gross humor. But we try for funny, not gross.
Shawn: The people who watched us on TV followed us into films, and that was our core fan-base, and it grew from there.
Shawn: People are expecting things. In the first one, no one was expecting anything. They were saying, Oh my God, I can't believe these guys are doing this.
Shawn: For Scary Movie 2, we had a due date and had to work fast. And though there's a lot of pressure, as artists, we just block it out. So really, the pressure comes from us. That's how the first movie happened. There was no outside pressure: we wanted to hit the audience hard.
