    • [On prepping the cast of The Insect Trainer]
      Timothy Carey: First I'd take a big fart in front of them. That's always a big help. I always thought if you really want to be a good actor, you've got to be able to fart in public. That, to me, is the most important. If you are so inhibited that you can't fart, I don't mean around your friends, I mean just a fart, out loud somewhere. I don't mean the 'silent creeper', everybody does that. I mean fart out loud! Just that you can do it and not be afraid of it. Humility is very important.

    • [On Paths of Glory]
      Timothy Carey: Let me tell you an interesting story about Paths of Glory. In the execution scene there was no dialogue but I started to speak, so Kubruck said, 'Bring in the sound!' I kept saying, 'I don't want to die, I don't want to die', so Kubruck comes up to me and says, 'Tim, you better make this good, Kirk [Douglas] doesn't like it', but of course they used it.
