136131. You get a different kick out of all aspects of filmmaking. – Guy Ritchie

136132. Jake Green isn’t just Jake Green. Jake represents all of us. The colour green is the central column of the spectrum and the name Jake has all sorts of numerical values. All things come back to him within the film’s world of cons and games. – Guy Ritchie

136135. It’s not easy to strap yourself down to a desk and bash on a keyboard when you know you can direct lots of films, because directing films is fun and interactive and gregarious. Writing isn’t. – Guy Ritchie

136136. After Lock, Stock, all these really nasty small town characters came knocking at my door trying to tell me stories, and somehow I ended up with this guy whose brother was feeding people to pigs, and that’s what he did to get rid of people. – Guy Ritchie

136138. I am not involved in any ‘issues’ because it’s too sensitive for me – or my wife – to get involved. Every time we express an opinion it becomes a whole thing in itself. And the whole purpose of living in the countryside was to get away from hundreds of people. My wife fell off a horse, and suddenly there are hundreds of people around. – Guy Ritchie

136139. I got into film-making because I was interested in making entertaining movies, which I felt there was a lack of. – Guy Ritchie

136140. I like death. I’m a big fan of it. – Guy Ritchie

136145. I love fatherhood. I could bang on about kids forever. – Guy Ritchie

136146. I’m not under too much of an illusion of how smart or un-smart I am because filmmaking ultimately is about teamwork. – Guy Ritchie

136147. I’m not politically motivated. I used to be – passionately. I used to be very Left wing. Then I went very Right wing, and now I rest somewhere in the middle. – Guy Ritchie

136149. I’d like to work with the missus, but there’s nothing in the pipeline at the moment. – Guy Ritchie

136150. It’s about not letting the internal enemy, the real enemy, have his way because the more he does the stronger he becomes. The film’s about the devastating results that can manifest from the internal enemy being unbridled and allowed to unleash chaos. – Guy Ritchie

136151. There’s been a big spur in downtown development with new business, restaurants and a lot of loft buying. The buses run, and there’s a subway that runs through downtown. – Michael Ritchie

136152. It’s exciting to see a kid at a rehearsal meeting with someone who seems like such an icon. – Michael Ritchie

136153. I had no training in the theater. I did not study it but just did it. – Michael Ritchie

136154. The trick is to have my own particular taste and feel for the theater to audiences who have been used to one particular style and taste for nearly 40 years. – Michael Ritchie

136155. The audience includes subscribers, so you have to be careful. – Michael Ritchie

136156. Sitting in this chair, my recommendation would carry too much weight. – Michael Ritchie

136157. Los Angeles has always been on the table with us. – Michael Ritchie

136158. Just go out there and do it. It’s not the easiest path. – Michael Ritchie

136159. In next five to 10 years I probably would have done my best work, but I was afraid of having another 10 or 15 years ahead of me and feeling stale, so this was an opportunity to reinvigorate myself. – Michael Ritchie

136160. I’ve never presented. The logistics of that is a challenge. – Michael Ritchie

136161. I’ll be going to the granddaddy of the Los Angeles theaters. – Michael Ritchie

136162. I have no interest in directing. I’d be a bad director. – Michael Ritchie

136163. I feel that I’m leaving Williamstown too early, but I’d rather leave too early than too late. – Michael Ritchie

136164. I went into this job to do plays, but that’s here for 10 weeks, and the rest of the year I do a lot of other things-the administrative work of planning, reading plays. – Michael Ritchie

136165. Even though there are some great keyboard players on the album, there are a number of songs with no keyboard on them and the backing is all guitar oriented. This is first time I’ve ever done this actually. – Lee Ritenour

136166. Well, Smoke n’ Mirrors has very much a world music flavor and it doesn’t park itself in one country. It borrows heavily from the Brazilian angle, which is dear to my heart, and I recorded several albums with that flavor. – Lee Ritenour

136167. If you play the very subtle jazz tunes with acoustic pianos, acoustic bass and it’s a dead standard, you are going to play very differently. It depends on the music. – Lee Ritenour

136169. I had redesigned my entire amplifier system for this tour because airlines are very strict now. – Lee Ritenour

136170. Arranging is the way I put my stamp on my music as much as my guitar playing. – Lee Ritenour

136171. My son Wesley has just turned 13. He was 12 during the recording of this record and he is quite a drummer already and has been studying drums since he was four, but he’s also very interested in African percussion and studies percussion. – Lee Ritenour

136172. I used a baritone guitar with a very unusual tuning that became the body of the composition, while the classical guitar is on top of it with the main rhythm part. – Lee Ritenour

136173. I don’t have a lot of respect for talent. Talent is genetic. It’s what you do with it that counts. – Martin Ritt

136174. For the greater beauty of the instrument, the balls representing the planets are to be of considerable bigness; but so contrived, that they may be taken off at pleasure, and others, much smaller, and fitter for some purposes, put in their places. – David Rittenhouse

136175. But Dr. Smith says, and I believe it to be a true state of the case, that he himself gave a course of Lectures in Natural Philosophy, during the same winter, and that the money raised by them was also applied towards paying for the Orrery. – David Rittenhouse

136176. In order to know the true situation of a Planet at any particular time, the small set of balls are to be put each on its respective axis; then the winch to be turned round until each index points to the given time. – David Rittenhouse

136177. I think I would cope like anyone copes with any tragedy. I’m sure I would be very upset for a while and then there would come a point where I would either have to stay in this place of darkness and anger, or I’d have to accept that it happened. – Jason Ritter

136178. I never get tired of smiling. I’m just the kind of guy who likes to smile. – Jason Ritter

136180. Fake relationships and fake people coming up to me and all of a sudden wanting to be my friend. – Jason Ritter

136185. Once during a taping there was an actor who kept blowing his lines. It happened again and again. Finally Norman Fell came out-he wasn’t even in that scene. But Norman came out and you know what he did? He killed the guy with a hammer. – John Ritter

136211. I’m pretty selective. I generally edit the contact sheets and then do work prints. Because I have my own lab and printers, I can afford the luxury of going through the contact sheets for black-and-white, making up work prints, seeing them big, and honing them down. – Herb Ritts

136212. Once you develop your own style, you know when you’re able to give your best. Feeling at home is part of it, and I don’t think that’s an L.A. thing. It’s a matter of the environment and of what affects you. – Herb Ritts

136382. The increase in inequality in income is a longtime trend, but the pressure on middle- and low-income workers is going up rapidly. Especially if they live in an area where there are high housing and gas prices, like California. – Alice Rivlin

136396. You could get in rehearsals, pre-production, anything that would actually contribute to the understanding of how a film gets made. I actually find those things increase people’s interest in a movie and like that better than worrying about showing the tricks behind the curtain. – Jay Roach

136397. When I’m shooting, really the audience I’m thinking the hardest about is that first test screening audience who I want to like the film and that first opening weekend audience. – Jay Roach

136402. The commentary track became a lot like the movie and there are some funny, long, awkward pauses that you can tell we’re just trying to find stuff to say. None of us had gotten to really talk about the movie until that moment and they were in New York and we were in L.A. – Jay Roach

136403. Sometimes I would like the opportunity to do character-driven comedy and that’s really what I was trying to do in Meet The Parents. I think in a way this is a more old fashioned type of comedy. – Jay Roach

136419. Because I actually find the next take after they’ve controlled it a little bit and repressed the laughter is actually a really interesting take, because that’s still going on underneath the surface. That struggle to maintain composure becomes part of the joy of the scene. – Jay Roach
