    • (when asked about Earl's mustache from My Name is Earl)
      Tom: Earl's mustache is coming along well and when he reaches puberty, it will really fill in. (laughs) That's a joke. I have my mustache now when people want it or when it is OK for that character. I have thrown plenty of spoofs at my mustache on Conan O'Brien. Every time I go on Conan, we make fun of my mustache.

    • Tom: There was a time I could have been mistaken for Burt Reynolds. I had a mustache and so did he. But he was the number one star in the world, so there wasn't really much confusion.

    • Tom: For a character with longevity, you have to have that strength.

    • Tom: I had a fantasy of being a pro baseball player, and I've gotten to play a Major League Baseball player (in 1992's Mr. Baseball). I loved Westerns as a little kid and I get to do them. I even get to die as an actor and then you just go home and have dinner. It's great. So now, I'm not a candidate, but I play one on TV and I'll be home for dinner.

    • Tom: His announcement was so typically Chuck -- he did it with grace and dignity and intelligence, ... Wolf Blitzer Reports.

    • Tom: I've got nothing against this particular set of candidates, but I do think we're not seeing enough of who they are, ... We're kind of seeing who they and their handlers think we want them to be.

    • Tom: It's intimidating to play the nominee for president. The little kid inside you says, "I'm not enough". I would guess that happens to politicians, too. They go, 'C'mon, who am I kidding? I'm just this guy or this woman".

    • Tom: I had a fantasy of being a pro baseball player, and I've gotten to play a Major League Baseball player (in Mr. Baseball 1992), ... I loved Westerns as a little id and I get to do them. I even get to die as an actor and then you just go home and have dinner. It's great. So now, I'm not a candidate, but I play one on TV and I'll be home for dinner.

    • Tom: Popularity is the pocket change of history. The true measure is courage. There will never be another Charlton Heston.

    • Tom: Going through my mind? Don't screw up, don't screw up Frank's birthday.

    • Tom: If a guy as good and decent with as much grace as Chuck Heston can stand up for an issue that I think is very important, ... then I certainly could stand up and I plan on remaining a life member for life.

    • Tom: He said, I still got a lot of fight in me, and this isn't the end of the line" and that's very much Chuck, too. He had a lot of humor Friday and it was great to talk to him.

    • Tom: It's not that Conservatives don't care. We do. We just have different answers than Liberals do. It's a difference of the mind, not of the heart.

    • Tom: There was a time I could have been mistaken for Burt Reynolds. I had a mustache and so did he. But he was the number one star in the world, so there wasn't really much confusion.

    • Tom: Son, never throw a punch at a Redwood.

    • Tom: Do you like my suit? I think this is an amazing suit, don't you think?

    • Tom: (in a TV interview a day before Laguna Heat started) I was planning to go in to Architecture. When I arrived (to sign up for courses) Architecture was filled up. Acting was right next to it. So I signed up for acting instead.
