106885. There’s a certain kind of motion and pacing that our music has, and this just doesn’t have that. We just kind of rushed to the conclusion of most of the songs. I just would’ve preferred to done them over. – Branford Marsalis

106943. I went swimming the other day and my wife was watching and she said, ‘You know, it’s funny, it’s when you’ve got no clothes on, no one recognizes you.’ I said, ‘What are you saying? That I should do more love scenes?’ – Eddie Marsan
