Rod Steiger: Acting applies so much to life. You have more knowledge, you have more courage. To me, acting is exploring life in front of an audience. That's tough, because when you go wrong you look like an idiot. But when you go right you're might be making a memory, which, that's the highest gift anyone at this table can give anybody.
Kevin Pollack: (about Sarah Silverman's un-PC humor) Also for a fellow comedian, let me just say on your behalf, if I may be so bold, if you have to explain your humor because they don't get it and its taken in the wrong way and made an issue out of it. You're 19 miles past the joke, there's no going back and saying...anything.
This would prove to be Rod Steiger's last TV appearance. Steiger died on July 9, 2002.
