  • Quotes

    • Director: Clint Walker, I want you to meet Tex Morgan.
      (shakes hands with Jack who's pretending to be a cowboy named Tex Morgan)
      Clint: I can't say as I recognize the name, but there's somethin' mighty familiar about that spongy handshake.

    • Jack: (discussing writing his autobiography) It's hard to write an autobiography--an interesting one--if you've never experienced poverty. Now, like, it was hard for me to write it because I was never poor. My parents were, but I wasn't.
