When I was nominated for an Oscar and seated next to Martin Scorsese, there was nothing in my mind that made me think, ‘Hey, in three years maybe I’ll make another remake of ‘Punisher.”
It is unusual for a coach to call you, just from a fundamental standpoint and say ‘hey we’re watching what you do.’
I have great tenants. They’ve all become my friends. They call me and say, ‘Hey Kev, we’ve got a drip!’
I don’t really look at genre. I mean, sometimes you might be playing heavies a lot, and you’re like, ‘Hey, it’d be nice to do a romantic comedy.’
I remember I was in a San Francisco nightclub, and I started talking to some girl, and it was like, ‘Hey, what’s going on, what’s your name?’ You know, ‘Where are you from?’ I go, ‘I’m from Iran.’ And literally, she just looked at me and walked away.
I’ve been fortunate that the people I hang out with all respect women and men, so there’s hasn’t been a scenario where I’ve had to step in and say, ‘Hey, this isn’t cool.’
Justin Prentice
I almost ran into a construction worker driving the other day. He may have planned to scream at me or something, but he saw me and said, ‘Hey, you’re that guy on ‘Dharma & Greg.’
But hey, when you live in Watts, you need a little smack to get by, you know what I mean? You need something soft and comfortable in your life, ’cause you’re not going to get it from what’s around you. And society isn’t going to give it to you.
I love being an example, that, hey, I’m young, I’m a rapper, and the gospel is the power of God for salvation even for me.
We exalted that Michael Phelps-consecrated water. Rose petals were strewn in Peyton Manning’s path when he retired. But hey, that’s natural. As we should, we admire those in any craft, no less so in sports, who appear out of nowhere to achieve remarkable feats.
The easiest thing to do is put someone in a file of somebody you already know. ‘Hey, you remind me of Sam Kinison’ or ‘You remind me of Richard Pryor.’ That’s fine, because I know that’s the process. Eventually, my own file will be created.
I actually met Deadmau5 for the first time on the red carpet in Hollywood for the Grammys. I was there with my daughter, and he introduced himself to me. He said, ‘Hey, I’m from Toronto.’ I had a little conversation with him, and then I realized I’m talking to a guy with a giant mouse head.
It’s less to do about me – ‘Hey, I’m black and it hurts my feelings; it’s a symbol of slavery and oppression‘ – and more to do with the fact that, as an American, I will not honor a group of treacherous traitors. That’s why I despise the rebel flag.
I always try to be very human in my performances and hang out with my fans. It is cool to be a celebrity, but at the end of the day I want to empower my audience and say, ‘Hey, I am just like you.’
Sometimes people start with you. Especially in local places – ‘Hey, go get your shine box.’ So I go out earlier. I wear sunglasses and a cap… That’s the downside of being successful.
I want to do something that people can really say, ‘Hey, man, that was good, I’m proud of you, I’m proud of that.’ ‘Pride‘ and ‘Transformers‘ and things like that.
That’s a problem I have a lot of the time with humor in music, where it just kind of stops at the obvious level of: ‘Hey, isn’t it something that’s in bad taste?’
If a little black girl in Montgomery, Alabama, or some far-reaching region sees something that I do and aspires to do it one day with the knowledge that she can achieve it, then hey, my work is done.
If you tell someone, ‘Hey, your daughter is going to win a Nobel Prize someday,’ it makes it less likely. If you say, ‘Your son is in danger of dropping out in the ninth grade,’ it could make it more likely.
The laws imposed by Brussels damage Italian artisans, traders, pensioners, but hey, Europe is asking, so we have to obey. Come on, if Europe asks me to throw myself in a well, I’m not going to do that just because Europe is asking me to, am I?
Just checking up on someone with a, ‘Hey, how are you doing?’ usually means the most to someone. I try my best to regularly check in with friends who are musicians just because I know we go through things where we feel like people only hit us up because they need something from us like a verse or a promo.
I think airlines have been very much parrots. They’ll just follow what everyone else is doing. Why change a model that they’re happy in? And it takes someone like myself or Richard Branson who comes from outside the industry to say, ‘Hey, let’s try something new.’
Tony Fernandes
An established film director can just pick up the phone and say to a star, ‘Hey, are you interested in doing a commercial?’
I wanted Rosemary Clooney to like ‘Hey There.’
It was this thing I used to do, where I would get on the phone and put my voice in a man’s voice like, ‘Hey, you’re talking to Tom.’
People come up and say, ‘Hey, I know you!’ They’re middle-aged women and big burly guys. They say, ‘Don’t tell anyone, but I watch Felicity, and I think it’s great.’
Ian Gomez
I think that some of the earliest ideas in the modern period were actually from astronomy. You look at Galileo: He goes up and points his telescope up at Jupiter and finds out, hey, Jupiter has these moons.
Hey, a woman changed her mind – what else is new?
Glenn Frey
Women are so strong and knowledgeable. You know, instead of competing with each other, I would love to complete each other. Take away that wall of competition and say, ‘Hey, let’s just all get together and help each other be brilliant.’
Anarchy would be a world that nobody felt responsible for, that nobody felt any sort of love for. When there’s real intelligence happening, when there’s real love happening, there’s a sense of responsibility: Hey, we’ve got to take care of this place and each other.
They said hey look, The Beatles deserve to be number one, not Bobby Vinton. We’re gonna cut your tires. Change that listing. They were dedicated at the time.
I don’t know what a person does that does not have a relationship with God. When he goes to the doctor and the doctors says, ‘Hey, you’ve got less than two months to live and there’s nothing we can do for you.’ Who do they turn to when you’re given something that earth shattering?
I want to be so famous that I’m the pop-culture reference that people would make to try and be racist to me. So I’d be walking down the street, and someone would be, like, ‘Hey, look at this Kumail Nanjiani.’
Hey, I’m a former union president myself and also an attorney that represented a lot of unions.
Stephen F. Lynch
In comedy, I often see so many weird race jokes, and it’s like, there is no racial diversity in your show to even make those race jokes. The problem is that there is no one in the back to say, ‘Hey, that race joke is not really appropriate.’
I want to create a TV show that people will watch and say, ‘Hey, I have a favorite character,’ or ‘Hey, that person reminds me of myself,’ or ‘Hey, I’ve made some of those same mistakes, or those are some of the things I’ve dealt with.’
In the early years, I found a voice that was my voice and also partly my father’s voice. But isn’t that what you always do? Why do kids at 5 years old go into the closet and put their daddy‘s shoes on? Hey, my kids do it.
I think it can be fun to be single and date-like when you don’t want a relationship. Or when you’ve just gotten out of a relationship, and, after get over the initial shock, your thinking, Hey, it’s kind of cool being single.
Breckin Meyer
It’s tough now to meet a girl who wants to hang out with you because she likes your personality – who hasn’t seen you on TV and is like, ‘Hey!’
I want to go as hard as I can, and if I look like a guy out there playing ball, well, hey, I feel sorry for the opponent.
I feel like my life has always been the ‘Hey Look at Me Show.’ I’m not apologetic about that.
My dad is a really cool guy, but he showed me ‘The Shining,’ and I was like, ‘Hey, dad. I’m thirsty. Let’s go get a Coke.’ So we went to the vending machine, and he hid… and I turned back, and I was like, ‘Dad? Dad?’ And the elevator scene came to my mind.
Daniel Zovatto
A man never apologizes for the fact that he has to work. He might say, ‘Hey, I am so sorry my hours were long today,’ but he’d never feel he has to explain the very fact that he has a career. Once I stopped apologizing, I noticed both my kids also stopped complaining and asking me ‘why’ I worked.
Raney Aronson-Rath
I remember once seeing a guy in the grocery store who looked so much like my character the Archangel Gabriel, I wanted to go up to him and say, ‘Hey, put that Red Bull down. You’ve already got wings.’ My friend had to sternly remind me that he was a stranger and I did not, in fact, create him.
I don’t work with anybody on the music, of course. But my God, some of the lyrics that other people have written were so shallow: ‘Hey baby this, hey baby that.’ I need substance to the words, you know? Give me depth!
Hey sky, take off your hat, I’m on my way!
The idea is not enough. And the most annoying thing for me as a writer is that people will come up to me and say, ‘Hey, I’ve got a great idea for a book. I’m not a writer, but I’ve got a great story.’
A company that pays attention to the family unit is a successful company. We don’t isolate the family. We don’t make rides that say, ‘Hey mom, dad, you go sit on the bench.’
The difference between Tinted Windows and Hanson shows is a lot of just repertoire. Hanson has been a band for years – we have a lot of songs to pull from and it’s a different dynamic – a common kind of thread. With Tinted Windows – it’s kind of a little like ‘hey, we’re this new band.’
Taylor Hanson
I don’t think that the Supreme Court really takes cases with kind of a theme in mind. They get about 10,000 requests a year, and what are called ‘petitions for certiorari,’ which are essentially 30 page documents which say, ‘Hey, Court, hear my case.’ And they don’t take very many of them.
I got an email from the Crown Prince of Norway asking me to talk at a summit for young Norwegian entrepreneurs. I ran to my wife and was like, ‘Hey! I got an email from the Prince of Norway!’
Michael, if he wants an operation on his nose, plastic surgery, hey, he can do it. It’s his right.
Joe Jackson
There’s times where I go off the rails like anybody else. For the most part, I try to keep it, ‘Hey, this is what we’re dealt and this is the situation, so let’s make the best of it.’ Keep a positive attitude.
I know who I am. I don’t have to brag. I know what I contributed. I know what I did. You think you can do it better? Hey, go right ahead. The stage is yours.
Al Lewis
I’m terrible on the phone. I just text my friends and family and say, ‘Hey, I’m in town.’
But I do think I’m quite a selfish performer in the sense that I’m not one of those that’s like ‘Hey, come on everybody lets sing along’ you know that kind of thing.
I’ve been in Iraq, and it never occurred to me to go, ‘Hey, this war is bogus,’ to some guy who’s 24 hours a day trying not to get shot at or blown up.
On ‘Glee,’ the director can be like, ‘Hey, your face is looking a little too intense here.’ And they can show me the screen, and I can be like, ‘I know exactly what to do here.’
It’s like, hey, some people cook for a living, and some people milk cows. I write songs.
You put this face on television, week in, week out, they’d stop me and they’d say, ‘Hey, Roy, how are you doing?’ They’d know who I was, what I was, what I looked like, and what I did – all from seeing and hearing it at the same time on television.
In high school I just loved to compete and play sports. I didn’t have a sport that I was going to say, ‘Hey, I’m going to play this at the next level.’ Whatever my best opportunity was was what I was going to do.
My stand-up has always been very character-based. I’m not really the kind of person that’s like, ‘Hey, here’s what’s on my mind! Tip your waitress!’ I would create the jokes based on the character I was playing. It was always a performance-based thing for me.
I loved wrestling, and I wanted to go out and entertain people and all that stuff, so I get trained, and when they decided, ‘Hey, you’re ready for a match, and you’ve got to start thinking about a character,’ I was thinking this guy and this guy, and they go, ‘No, no, no – you’re a Muslim. You’ve got to be a bad guy.’
There was a time I desperately needed for the world to know that I was no category guy. My whole goal in life was to reach that certain success where people will say, ‘Hey, that guy can do anything. He’s the Evel Knievel of music. He’s jumping over 15 buses!’
I’ve been having meetings with people, just everywhere in the world, and it’s like, ‘Hey, really love you to work with me, send me some ideas.’ That’s the crazy part.
Pitchers really don’t deal with the managers a whole lot. When we come in the clubhouse, we see him, we say, ‘Hey.’ That’s really it.
I went from an unemployed actor’s life to doing stand-up comedy, and that was fortuitous. It’s not the usual way the crow flies, going from being in a TV sketch show to playing one of Shakespeare‘s finest characters, but, hey, that’s the way it has happened.
I don’t really like to drink. I don’t like the way alcohol feels or tastes. On occasion I’ll do it as a social thing, just to kind of go, ‘Hey! I did something with you guys!’
The greatest compliment a coach can get from another coach around the league is, ‘Hey, your guys play hard. They’re tough.’
Once people realized that, ‘Hey, we’re going to be left on Earth here, and everything is going to hell quickly,’ sci-fi soon became about our own self-destruction.
I never wanted to do a regular sitcom, because I’d be incredibly bored doing the same character week in, week out. But the beauty of ‘The Simpsons‘ is that it’s 15, 16, 17 characters. It’s the variety that keeps it interesting. And hey, they’re all my children.
Sometimes people are like, ‘Hey, you played Dean Thomas!’ and I’m like, ‘Wow, you actually know!’ It kind of shocks me because when I think about movies I love, and if I saw someone who essentially did what I did in Harry Potter, I probably wouldn’t recognize them walking down the street.
Alfred Enoch
People tend to shy away from tall guys who dance, but hey, we can make it look good, too!
I accidentally met Don Callis in Japan. I was at New Japan and I was with mutual friends, and I met Don on accident and started telling him some of my ideas. We started talking and he basically at dinner was saying, ‘Hey, we should give you a job.’
Scarlett Bordeaux
It just took all of that to come to a screeching halt, to get to the point of having nothing, for me to finally realize, Hey, what are you fighting with this for? Until then, I hadn’t claimed my faith as my own; I had just grown up with it.
Over the years, I would go to my agents, my manager, and I would say, ‘Hey, there’s this amazing true story about this gay English mathematician who committed suicide in the 1950s.’ And they would be like, ‘Please don’t ever write that script. That is an unmakeable film.’
All I can say is, hey, if you have fun doing what you do, if you have fun playing soccer, the creativity is just going to come as time goes on.
In my divorce, I stood up and said to my ex-wife, ‘Hey, I messed up. This had nothing to do with you. I didn’t understand what marriage was. I cheated. I was wrong. We couldn’t fix it; it got worse. I stepped away because I didn’t want it to get any worse. You’re the mother of my kids – I don’t want to hate you.’
We’re not interested in bombarding our users with, ‘Hey, play this game, play this game, play this game.’ It gets annoying, it gets in the way of messaging, and it gets in the way of staying in touch with people who are important to you.
The Lilith Fair thing was Bummer Town – hey, hop aboard the marginalizing train. I guess you had people come out of that and have careers, but I think there was a pretty intense backlash, too.
A majority of my YouTube friends I’ve made because I made a trip down to California and literally tweeted them saying, ‘Hey! Come over – let’s shoot something!’ And then two strangers will just meet up, talk, and shoot something.
Sometimes directors will hire you and say, ‘Oh, we love your work.’ And then they start to tell you how to do it. I say, ‘Hey, man, back off. You hired me to do it. Let me do it.’
I feel like I am a lot of who I am because I watched these shows that said it was okay to be a total weirdo. Shows like ‘Pete and Pete,’ ‘Hey, Dude,’ ‘Salute Your Shorts‘ – that’s what I grew up with.
You don’t want to be a gimmick. You don’t want to be a set piece, where people go, ‘Hey, that’s weird.’
I called up a bunch of the CEOs of Silicon Valley companies and said, ‘Hey, can I come and see you? And I’d like to learn about what you’re doing.’ And I don’t know, most of them said yes.
Hey, if someone is crushing on me, and it brings them out to the show, so be it!
It’s our responsibility for the village to say, ‘Hey we’re going to create these programs,’ whether it’s sports, creative arts, music, we need some things to give young people positive things to do, and that’s including jobs.
Hey sky, take off your hat, I’m on my way!
A lot of kids are broken, and it’s hard for them to believe in anything. But you have to have an imaginative mind and tell yourself, ‘Hey, I can do whatever I want to.’
Torii Hunter
You can pick songs that sound like hits, but if it’s not something that somebody wants to tell their friends, ‘Hey man, have you heard this song?’ then I don’t think it’s worth it. The only way to get your music out there, is for someone to tell their friends about it.
Hey, our Founding Fathers wore long hair and powdered wigs – I don’t see anybody trying to look like them today, either… But we do look to them as role models.
I think that American presidents, that position in itself, as well as American foreign policy, it has terrorism in it. CIA agents going to overthrow certain governments – they’re using terrorist tactics. They’re not going in there like, ‘Hey, you wanna have some cake?’
I certainly wouldn’t mind if ‘Jurassic Parkturns out to be commercially successful, and somebody says, ‘Hey, you were in a box-office hit, and if you want to do another movie, we’ll give you five million dollars to make it.’
It’s all about story and character with me, and I don’t care if the job is on daytime or prime time or the web. Hey, give me a good character and someone to listen, and I’ll do my acting on a street corner.
I actually really suck at naming books, so lots of years ago, readers were sending in their ideas for titles, and what we realized is that they were smarter than us. So we thought, Hey, go for it. So now we have a contest every year.
Hey, I’m a girl, and we like to play dress-up.
I know patients who bring a dozen roses to the doctor’s office. And, boy, the next visit, nobody forgets that. You come in and hey – ‘Here’s the lady who brought the roses’ vs. ‘Here’s the lung cancer.’
Everything I do, I want to be A.J. Styles. When you see a guy come out with dry, long hair, I want you to be like, ‘Hey, that reminds me of A.J. Styles.’ That’s what I want.
The ‘Hey Monday’ songs were always glammed up to be this big production, and I definitely want there to be some bells and whistles like synth or drum loops, but for the most part, I want a simple yet powerful production.
I always figure hey, look, I’m not a rock star, I’m an actor. I’m somebody who’s meant to be other people and I’m not meant to be here representing myself. I’m happier when I’m presenting myself as other characters.
This life of ours, this is a wonderful life. If you can get through life like this and get away with it, hey that’s great. But it’s very predictable. There’s so many ways you can screw it up.
Paul Castellano
The ‘Hey now’s’ are delivered as people pass me. As I just get near ear range, I hear, ‘Hey now!’ and that’s very funny.
On the gay issue, hey, you know what, if people love each other, Jesus, I mean come on.
Hey bands, you’re all welcome to fly me to some exotic location and I’ll record you there, Y’know that right? You don’t have to come to this God forsaken place. Hope I can visit you all in Australia one of these days that would be hot! We’ll talk again soon.
Jim Diamond
Yes, Adam Sandler is a good kisser, and other actresses have said the same thing to me. They’ve come up to me – other actresses who’ve kissed him – and said, ‘Hey, so good, right?’
I’ve had statements made – ‘Who in the heck wants to hear a 60-year-old singer?’ That statement was made – it’s disheartening, you know, because you say, ‘Well, hey, why should a guy feel like that about it?’
Obviously I know if you’re putting yourself out there, saying, ‘Hey! Listen to my music!,’ with pictures of yourself in the magazines, then people are going to judge you. ‘I hate her music. I hate her hair. I hate her production. I hate her videos.’ Fine: don’t care. That’s the great thing about art: it’s not for everyone.
Fear is a great signal. It’s like a pain signal. Hey, look at me, look at me. Get your focus right over here, at the pain.
As a housewife, I feel that if the kids are still alive when my husband gets home from work, then hey, I’ve done my job.
For people who mourn for old Times Square – hey, there’s a ton of places in the city still like that! Get on the train and go visit them!
I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there, the guy was locking the front door. I said, ‘Hey, the sign says you’re open 24 hours.’ He said, ‘Yes, but not in a row.’
We always thought if ‘Beauty and the Beat’ sold even 100,000 copies, we’d be real happy and a successful group, so when it reached a million… Hey, we just laughed about it.
My family got all over me because they said Bush is only for the rich people. Then I reminded them, ‘Hey, I’m rich’.
If someone says, hey, you know, this long weekend, let’s go skydiving – I would say, no, are you nuts? I’d just as soon sit down and have a cup of tea.
No one would say, ‘Hey, I think this medicine works, go ahead and use it.’ We have testing, we go to the lab, we try it again, we have refinement. But you know what we do on the last mile? ‘Oh, this is a good idea. People will like this. Let’s put it out there.’
I love that mentality: ‘Hey – you know what? – you may beat us, but by God we’re going to beat the hell out of you.’ I’d rather go down that way, with people that will go down swinging than, ‘OK, let’s accept losing.’
After the games, you know, go on Twitter and stuff, ‘Hey, do you know you look like Pete Davidson?’ Like, yeah, I get it every night.
I don’t like to appoint myself to nothing, knowing I’m no better than anybody else. But it always makes me feel good to know I try to do the best I can, and those who might observe say, ‘Hey, I can take a little something from that person.’
I’d rather have people dislike my style than change it. If someone says, ‘Hey, Yngwie, you play too damn much,’ I don’t care. They way I play is the way I like to play. If people like it, great. If they don’t, it’s still fine with me.
The power of network television is amazing. I’ve been performing for years but have been seen on only a few episodes of this show, and people spot me in public now all the time. They say, ‘Hey, aren’t you on ‘Nashville‘?’ Most locals seem to really appreciate how authentic the show is.
You don’t really get it from NASCAR that they want you to be the bad guy or the good guy. They’ll kind of joke around with you and be like, ‘Hey, that was really good this past weekend. You did a great job for us. Ratings were up.’
I had my battles. I had my times of just being upset and God would show me, ‘Hey, I’m right here, I’ll walk you through this and it doesn’t make sense now but just trust me.’ That’s where faith come in – trust.
Everybody in comedy has something like that happen to them: They bomb, or no one shows up. You’re like, ‘Hey, I’m funny, trust me!’ And the world collectively goes, ‘Yeah, you and everybody else.’
I was maybe halfway through my career, and I was shooting a Nike commercial, and the director came to the trailer and said, ‘Hey man, you’re really gifted at this. I get a lot of athletes that come in, but you were prepared, and you made everything seem very natural. I really think you should look into this.’
The joke I wanted to put into one of the promos for this new season, was to have a guy come up to me and say, Hey! Tony! I love your show, I’ve watched you every night since you started! And then I’d say, Ah! You’re the one!
It’s like, if you sign a guy you know is a punk and a jerk, you can’t complain like, ‘Hey, the punk jerk is acting like a punk jerk!’
When Target gets hacked, I don’t hear people saying, ‘Hey, was it Kohl’s? Was it Wal-Mart?’ It doesn’t matter. There was a hack; you deal with it.
There’s been some people I’ve overheard talking about ‘Mindhunter.’ I’ll lean in and say, ‘Hey, I haven‘t seen it yet. Is it any good?’ And they’ll say, ‘Yeah, you should go check it out.’
I was like, ‘Hey, I love highflying. I love lucha libre. Can I just put on a mask and pass myself off as a luchador?’ Everyone was like, ‘You’re going to do what you want to do,’ so that’s what I did for the first four or five years. I just put on a mask and pretended to be this luchador.
I first heard about ‘Stranger Things’ from people dressed as the characters coming up to me at conventions saying, ‘Hey, you have to see this show. It’s ‘Goonies.’
By the time May rolls around, I’m probably going to want to spend a month on an island. But if Steven Spielberg or Steven Soderbergh or any number of directors were to say ‘Hey, there’s this role, are you interested?’ I’d be there in a flash.
Marg Helgenberger
People are strange. We’re all morticians. Hey, what’s on TV?
When they were small and my wife really had no other responsibilities, except taking care of the family and all of us, it wasn’t that big a deal. It was fun. Hey, we’re going to Moscow. We’re going to Italy. We’re going to Toronto. We’re going to New York.
Joe Mantegna
I’m going to make a movie about ‘Hey Girl.’
I look up to Jimmy Fallon. He hosts talk shows as a fan himself, and that’s how I do it. When the celebrities come in, I’m excited that they’re there. It’s not just like a formal, ‘Hey, how are ya?’ It’s like, ‘Dude, what the hell! So happy to see you!’ That’s what Jimmy Fallon does every time.
I started watching movies my grandpa did, and I saw what an impact they made on the world. That’s when I said, ‘Hey, I want to do that too.’
Steven R. McQueen
Buddhist practices offer a way of saying, ‘Hey, come back over here, reconnect.’ The only way that you’ll actually wake up and have some freedom is if you have the capacity and courage to stay with the vulnerability and the discomfort.
I mean, my students are texting me all the time. It could be 10 o’clock at night, ‘Hey Dr. B., can you check my thesis statement?’ You know, I’m in bed!
I can’t say to Elton, ‘Hey, let’s walk around the corner and have a coffee.’ Someone as well-known as that can’t go anywhere in the world without being recognised. Elton has written the soundtrack to a lot of people’s lives, so they feel a kinship with him, so they come up, and that does colour things.
I don’t think songs have to be like these super-#1-smash-hit-sounding songs, because I think it’s more important that it’s like, ‘Hey! This is coming out of me. This is something I connect with. This is something that I like to sing.’
‘Pootie Tang’ may be raw and slovenly – hey, it often is raw and slovenly – but it succeeds as a laugh getter because of the spot-on satirical notes. You might say that the movie walks it like it talks it; I’m not sure what Pootie would say.
Is it ignorance or apathy? Hey, I don’t know and I don’t care.
The first MLB game I did was a Monday Night game, and no one really knew I was doing it. So walking into the clubhouse, I tried to introduce myself to people like, ‘Hey, I’m in the booth.’ And they were kind of confused, like, ‘You’re a female, I don’t understand.’
Fans in Madison Square Garden are a little bit hipper, but they are more vocal. It’s like, ‘Hey, you work for me, bro. I bought this ticket. Now get out there and entertain me.’
The reality is that every movie is a new business. Nobody says, ‘Hey, let’s go down to the Pantages Theater, I hear a Warner Brothers picture is playing there.’ Or, ‘Let’s go to this theater, I hear the film came in on budget.’ It’d be ridiculous.
I don’t have a nickname. But, hey, they can call me what they want – The Silent Assassin, The Underground King. In Japan, they call me American Knuckle Star. Call me what you want.
The American public is rightfully asking, ‘Hey, all those funds are coming out of my pocket, so I want to know where they’re going.’
I’m not looking for ‘outer esteem’ anymore, what they call ‘other esteem.’ I’m looking for self-esteem. And people think that self-esteem is built with accomplishments. And, ‘Hey, look what I did in my life.’
Nine times out of 10, extenuating circumstances aside, I believe that people are where they are by some kind of choice on their part. You need to acknowledge that, ‘Hey, I’m here because I steered my horse in this direction.’
Hey, man, I toss a stick for a living. Gotta spice up that deal, y’know. Gotta stand out.
Breaux Greer
‘Rosemary’s Baby’ is one of my all-time favorite books. I love that it just ends with, you know, ‘Hey, the devil‘s in the world, and guess what? Mom kind of likes him!’ And that’s the end.
I overuse words. My kids catch me saying stuff. They’re like, ‘Hey, you say that all the time.’ ‘Boom‘ is one of those things.
I would tell Vince McMahon, ‘Hey! I’m telling you, I’m going to run this place one day.’ And I think Vince likes to hear that. He knew I was motivated. He knew I was hungry.
A lot of guys go, ‘Hey, Yog, say a Yogi-ism.’ I tell ’em, ‘I don’t know any.’ They want me to make one up. I don’t make ’em up. I don’t even know when I say it. They’re the truth. And it is the truth. I don’t know.
Twitter is maybe the worst thing. It’s cool when you can tweet out your show and be like, ‘Hey, come see my show,’ or ‘Check out this Kickstarter,’ but it’s also this weird 140-character vehicle for insidiousness.
Some people have a misunderstanding about the Army. Some people think, ‘Hey, you’re in the military, and everything is super-hierarchical, and you’re in an environment that is intolerable of criticism, and people don’t want frank assessments.’ I think the opposite is the case.
Hey, I used to eat at McDonald‘s: I liked the taste of the food, especially the French fries.
Regarding social media, I really don’t understand what appears to be the general population‘s lack of concern over privacy issues in publicizing their entire lives on the Internet for others to see to such an extent… but hey it’s them, not me, so whatever.
I don’t have all answers, but as far as viewing my body… I’m in a place where I can look at my stretch marks and say, ‘Oh, hey, stretch marks!’ and I’m over it.
It’s like, hey, I’ve done what I could do, I’ve accomplished a lot, and now this – especially with wrestling – if this next generation wants to pass me up, great job. Good for them.
If I make a change to a young kid to play any sport, not only tennis, instead of spending time in front of the TV or computer, that is good. I want to give them a good example: ‘Hey, go out and play and see the world.’
I love funny people, and when I’m with funny people, or people who are amusing in their weirdness, I love it. Because that to me is funny, as opposed to someone who stops and says, ‘Hey let me tell you a joke.’
Hey, I’m just another guy coming out of JC. That’s the way I think of myself.
People think you can find a mentor by walking up to somebody and saying, ‘Hey, be my mentor,’ or by sending an e-mail to someone you’ve never e-mailed before and saying, ‘Hey, I want you to mentor me.’ But, mentorship really happens in rooms that you’re actually in.
Sometimes at night, when I leave and ride by the front of the White House and the lights are on, it is so beautiful, I have some sense of, ‘Hey, that’s where I work, and Jimmy is President now.’ But day in and day out, it’s a job.
When I came on ‘The West Wing,’ I jumped onto something that was already a steaming locomotive of a hit. It was very exciting for me because I knew, the moment I got the ‘West Wing’ job, ‘Well, hey, so now I’m on a hit show because it already is established and very popular.’
I feel like my ‘paycheck’ being cut on YouTube was almost like a wake-up call to be like, ‘Hey, don’t be conformable, expand the business.’
On ‘Insecure,’ Molly works at a law firm, and there’s scenes where her boss doesn’t value her voice and doesn’t value her efforts. And we had a lot of women tweeting ‘Me too’ in that situation. We’re saying, ‘Hey, no more. Not on our watch.’
If you’re really satisfied with your position on something, you just say, ‘Hey;’ you just very calmly present something.
My whole goal in life was to reach that certain success where people will say, ‘Hey, that guy can do anything. He’s the Evel Knievel of music. He’s jumping over 15 buses!’
My mom told us never to reveal that we were Shia in school. You would find out that some other kid was Shiite, and you would whisper, ‘Hey,’ or you would see someone at the mosque, and you’d be like, ‘Hey, that kid’s Shiite!’ There was a lot of tension, a lot of violence in Karachi between Shiites and Sunnis.
Hey, we just enjoy it. I think we think we’re getting the hang of this thing, you know?
I know, it was a little bit out of control, but hey. It was all fun.
Social media forced us to look at the bigger picture. More people are standing up saying, ‘Hey, wait, this is beautiful, too,’ and the fashion industry is listening.
The thing that got me started on Twitter was just basically pressure from management and the record company saying, ‘Hey, this is what all the other artists are doing. You need to be doing it also.’ I didn’t really have a clue what is was.
If all you’re doing is grinding for the man, it’s going to burden you. Once you say, ‘Hey, I’m grinding for the man, but I’m putting money away, and this is part of my exit strategy,’ you’re working for you.
I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and none of the other Backstreet Boys live in Georgia. So a lot of times, when people come to my house they’re like, ‘Hey, is A.J. here?’ Or, ‘Is Kevin here?’ Or, ‘Is Nick in the bathroom?’ People think we live together and we spend all the time in the world together, but we really don’t.
Good supporters who have single daughters say, ‘Hey, you need to take my daughter out.’ And it’s awkward.
People always ask me, ‘Hey, what’s Matt Damon like?’ He’s just a dude, just a really good person and one hell of an actor.
I’m of the mindset that most people who have kids are, which is, ‘Hey, I want another me. I like me. I’m pretty cool, and I’ve got really great ideas, and the way I think is the right way to think. Let’s put another one of me out there.’ So I’ll have kids one day.
Management gurus in general are, I think, best avoided. All too often they reduce your working life to a list of rules to be followed. Targets are aimed at. Goals kicked at. You then break the rules or forget them and, hey presto, you start beating yourself up.
Hey, it’s a miracle to have a career in Hollywood. But it doesn’t begin to sum me up.
I’m out here for opportunity and championship and a belt that spells my name, but on a bigger stage, my bigger goal, my mindset is to completely eliminate any doubt in some of the minds that, ‘Hey I don’t want to take my dream to WWE. Where I’m from, what I believe in, it could cause any trouble.’
There are not too many places I can go without someone saying, ‘Hey, can I take a picture of you with my daughter,’ or whatever. I’m humble when it comes to that stuff. I never refuse a handshake or a kiss on the cheek. The fans are the ones who put me where I am today.
Psychologists and psychiatrists send me cards and say, ‘Hey, I love your books.’
That really has been my message over the years: ‘Hey, we’re all in this together, so let’s laugh about it a little, please.’ It adds perspective to an argument if you know where you’re coming from.
Jeff MacNelly
Everything related to ‘SNL,’ that was very sudden – from the time I found out I was joining the cast to the time I could read on a blog that someone watching the show thinks I’m fat, that was about 30 days. That blog part, that could’ve moved a little more slowly. But hey – it’s all material, right?
If you are friends with someone, and you’re like ‘Hey, what ethnicity are you,’ that’s cool. But you wouldn’t walk up to a white person and say, ‘What kind of white are you?’
I’m not always smiling when I’m on the golf course. Sometimes, hey, listen, people have regular jobs. You go to them when they’re working, and you catch them not in the best moment either. So I understand how people could perceive me. But come get to know me, and I’m totally a different person.
My dad emphasized athletics. My mom did as well, but my mom was really hard on the academic end of things and always stressed, ‘Hey, you’ve got to have the grades, you’ve got to be prepared for life outside of sports.’
You can be a sex symbol through music or film. Hey, there are some politicians that are sex symbols. Is that something you should fight? No. Sex is very natural.
I really wanted a tennis dress. My parents told me that if I played, they would buy me one. I was like, ‘Hey, I’ll try it.’
If something stinks, I say it stinks. But I try to massage it a little and not be as cutting, come behind it with a joke: Hey, I cut you deep, but now let me put a couple of stitches in you.
I watch ‘Shark Tank,’ of course. It’s very entertaining. I think it’s actually good to help people think about the business they might start, and sometimes you get encouraged by looking at someone going into business and saying, ‘Hey, I could do that.’
But ‘Hey Dude’ was shot in Arizona, and that took me to the West Coast. We did 65 episodes. It was not a show that a ton of people saw, so it was like doing acting classes and getting paid for it. At that point I had the acting bug. So I went to L.A. to give it a try and never left.
Christine Taylor
When Steven Spielberg comes to you and says, ‘Hey do you want to write a movie about robots?’ You just say yes.
It’s difficult to see my daughters on television and in music videos, and then I get tweets or comments about crushes and, ‘Hey can I date? And hey, I’d be a good son-in-law type.’
I’ve got corporate executives, my bosses… this is true… who will text message me… and say, ‘Hey a, heard you had chemotherapy today, want me to stop by and pick you up something to eat and bring it to you?’ Whose boss does that? My bosses do that.
They just brought it up to me and said, ‘Hey, this is what we’re going to do.’ They’re going to put out a section and call it Judge’s Chambers and give them little judge outfits, and we’ll see what happens. I think it turned out great.
Hey, I may loathe myself, but it has nothing to do with the fact that I’m Jewish.
At the Grammys, you walk down the halls and everyone’s got five security guards. You can’t talk to anybody. You always feel out of place, like, ‘Hey, the rednecks are in town!’
Dave Haywood
When I work a Cowboys game, my social media will blow up with, ‘Hey, don’t forget who you played for,’ or, ‘You traitor.’
I always get stopped by security and immigration, telling me, ‘Tell me who the terrorist is, or we won’t stamp your passport!’ The last time that somebody did that to me – at LAX, actually – I was like, ‘Hey, don’t ever ask a brown girl that in an American airport!’
Our goal isn’t to go undefeated. Like, ‘Hey, we’re going to have an undefeated season.’ Our goal is to win every game we’re playing. And there’s a difference.
When I called people and said, ‘Hey! Do you want to work for the president?’ they usually said yes. I had 2 people say no. One person said no because they were a Republican; one person said no because they’re a Libertarian.
If I see somebody that’s doing something good, I tell him, Hey, man, keep doing those things. Those things can make you be a great pro.’
I try not to cancel people. But at some point, we got to stand up and say, hey, right is right, wrong is wrong.
I wish there was a switch that I could flip, where no one knows me. And then, when I’m ready to make a splash, I’d flip the switch and say, ‘Hey, I’m ready now.’ Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen.
Hey, Christian rock, if you want to be good, stop copying U2. U2 already did it. You know what I mean? There’s a lot of U2-esque Christian rock.
I feel like I’m held more accountable to stay healthy now because now I’m a role model to young girls to not have eating issues and to not say, ‘Hey, it’s OK to starve yourself’ or ‘It’s OK to throw up after your meals‘ – that’s not OK.
I remember going for a drink of water, and one old bloke shouts, ‘Hey you, young lad! Your grandad is under that grass!’ I just turned around to him, gave him the thumbs up and said: ‘Nae problem!’
I teased Randy Orton because he started using my finish, the Angle Slam. I said, ‘Hey, I don’t mind you using it, but at least give it a name.’ When he hits it, the announcers just say, ‘Well, he just hit that… thing.’
Hey, I’m just trying to become the Michael Caine/Gene Hackman of my generation.
Dumb luck brought on the move from business to acting. I had moved to New York when I was 23, in the year 2000. On a lark, I went to audition for a soap opera. I thought, ‘Hey, this will be a really fun story to tell my grandkids one day, that I auditioned for a soap!’
Teddy Sears
Any therapist can give you the expertise of their education, but we all know there’s that person in our lives that’s been like, ‘Hey, one time I did this thing,’ and that will stay with you for so much longer than the stuff that probably should, because it’s from direct experience.
While you’re improvising, you may come up with something which will break him up. As soon as that smile comes out, you know that, hey, we’re having fun.
Shelley Berman
I have great tenants. They’ve all become my friends. They call me and say, ‘Hey Kev, we’ve got a drip!’
This is what I hate about dating – when you just don’t know where you stand. I’m pretty honest, I’ll say, ‘Hey I don’t know what’s going on,’ but I don’t like the game of it. Like, do we like each other? Great, well let’s explore that.
I’m pretty fit, naturally. I do moderate exercise, and I try to eat pretty well and I think it has an effect on me. But hey, I’m putting on the insulin tire like everybody else, but that’s just a function of getting older.
We have to change the way people look at scientists. Today, they are the nerds, the geeks. Instead, we want some of the cool kids to say, ‘Hey, this is all right.’
My dad was pretty old school. I’ve had a job since I can remember, and it’s not like he was like, ‘Hey, what kind of car do you want?’ My first car was a ’91 Ford Crown Victoria that was $1,000. And I had to buy every car after that. I had to do it all.
I have to say, it was fun doing this ‘Love Letter’ album because, hey, man, love has never failed. It has won every battle. And today and forevermore, it will go on undefeated. I’m also a very loving person.
Hey, I’m happy someone is hiring me. It could be all over. I’m so lucky to have a job.
Kevin Williamson
Hey, you must be doin’ good, ’cause I never hear from you.
That’s the fun part of being CEO. You can actually say, ‘Hey, this is what we should be spending our time on,’ and people get it.
My first killer amp was a Sunn Beta Lead. It was solid-state, but that Sunn was incredibly loud. I used to say to my friends, ‘Hey, check it out. It’s only on two.’
I was 21, and I was in college, and I’d eat real healthy during the week, and then on the weekends I would reward myself, and I’d just go to town on whatever my parents had in the fridge. And my little brother would be like, ‘Hey.’ And so it was actually him that begged me to do my first contest.
The big idea of, ‘Hey, I can pay anyone, anywhere, with whatever digital wallet they have, and it just flows around the Internet’ – that’s on the horizon; that’s how we built everything we do.
Regarding social media, I really don’t understand what appears to be the general population‘s lack of concern over privacy issues in publicizing their entire lives on the Internet for others to see to such an extent… but hey it’s them, not me, so whatever.
It is unusual for a coach to call you, just from a fundamental standpoint and say ‘hey we’re watching what you do.’
Mostly, people want to take pictures sometimes of me, or they’ll say, ‘Hey.’ That’s been kinda cool.
I had girlfriends who really irritated me by their devotion to the Beatles. I didn’t begrudge them their interest, and there were songs like ‘Hey Jude’ that I could appreciate. But they didn’t seem to be essential to the kind of nourishment that I craved.
Everybody asks me, ‘Hey, what’s your most memorable fight?’ For me, it’s definitely the Matt Brown fight.
Just like I have my critics, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has critics, and I was one of the biggest ‘Hey man, you’re never here’ guys around, but not anymore. He’s completely committed to WWE.
People come up to me in bars and on street corners and they say to me, ‘Hey, Paulsen, have you got any change?’
I think people need housing. And there’s empty buildings, I think people should live in there. If you want to call them squatters, trespassers, hey, I call Wall Street thieves!
Al Lewis
I find myself chatting with my paintings, not deep and meaningful stuff, but things like ‘hey there buddy‘ and ‘oh, look what I did to your nose!’
Now we’re in an environment where women are increasingly having a huge impact and adding a lot of value to our industry. And women are celebrated if they raise their hand and say, ‘Hey, you’re missing my value. You’re not recognizing what I’m doing.’
I don’t even consider directing Burt. I just say, ‘Hey, Burt, the camera’s here. Read the joke and let’s get onto the next shot.’
I was singing a lot of waltzes. And I was with Jerry Kennedy, my producer, and he was playing me some songs, and he said, hey, I want to play you this song that I’m going to get Jackie Ward to record.
When you blame yourself, you learn from it. If you blame someone else, you don’t learn nothing, cause hey, it’s not your fault, it’s his fault, over there.
Joe Strummer
The more I support with my economic plans the building of a middle class, the quicker they’re going to turn around and say, ‘Hey, we want a bigger say in things.’ So, I knew what I was getting into right at the beginning. It’s the right thing to do.
Kevin Nash came to me; he goes, ‘Book, hey, Book, man, you know, this nWo thing is getting real hot, bro. And, man, we need some color, man.’ I swear to God, that’s how he said it! ‘We need some color, bro.’ He goes, ‘We want to bring you in.’ I go, ‘Man, thanks, but no thanks. No way.’ I said, ‘I’m a solo act, man.’
I might not understand everything a Democrat or liberal thinks but hey let’s be honest, I don’t understand some of the things the Republicans think, but that doesn’t make me some dumb hick that doesn’t have the right to live here.
It may sound kind of brash but you really do have to treat it like just another job. It could be over tomorrow, and if you invest too much of yourself in, ‘Hey I am the show and the show is me,’ you’ll get snapped hard.
What does it serve any studio to not reflect the lives of people who are giving you money, who are crying out to you, ‘Hey, please tell our stories.’
A friend of mine – a cameraman at MTV – lost a lot of weight from cycling, and I thought I’d try it, too, thinking whenever you look at a cyclist they all look super-skinny, so hey, why not? But then it turned into such a psychologically satisfying thing.
Citizens United didn’t work. Hey, Koch brothers, Karl Rove, Shellgame Adelson: Democracy trumps money sometimes.
I’m an artist with a message, and my message is more for society, casting the mirror onto them and saying, ‘Hey, this is what we look like, what are we going to do about it, how are we going to use what we’ve been through to aid where we’re going.’
Trai Byers
I started singing very early. I was six or seven years old, and I was singing along to TV commercials and figuring out, ‘Oh, hey, I can sing in tune. This is really cool.’ But the songwriting thing came much much later, when I was 19 years old.
When someone insists that you watch a show that’s already been on for a few seasons, they’re basically saying, ‘Hey, you’re not doing anything for the next five weeks, are you? Because have I got a plan for you every single night! It’s ‘Weeds!”
It was just such a demeaning thing to do, being in silent movies. They’d call you up and tell you, ‘Hey, jump off this building!’ and they’d give you a hundred bucks, and you’d do it.
I’m always going to feel like the underdog. I feel like that’s the kind of mind-set I want to have and if I do lose that mind-set, I want somebody to slap me in the face and say, ‘Hey, pick it up and get back to the roots.’
I was obsessed with movies, and it ended up being the tool with which I could make friends. Because I was too painfully shy in other circumstances, I would say, ‘Hey, do you want to make a movie?’ And that’s how I made friends, and it was also my escape.
Acting is a cruel enough business. One minute everyone’s going ‘Hey!’ and the next they’re going ‘Who?’. You certainly don’t need people knowing your private business, especially if you want to come out with your head still attached.
Jack Davenport
There’s nothing worse than watching an old wrinkly guy going, ‘Hey, baby.’ You’re like, ‘Dude, that’s lame.’ It’s cool to fall in love and grow old with someone.
We don’t get the greatest tools to deal with anger. It’s like, ‘Hey, count to 10.’ When someone really upsets me, how do I respond? I don’t usually start counting to 10 and breathing deeply.
No matter how bad your day is, when you start talking about cookies or cakes or pies, or you bring someone cookies, there’s just not bad news. The worst news is, ‘Hey, there’s sugar in that.’
Van Morrison is probably, at this point in time, my biggest influence as a vocalist. When we were making our last album I had a vinyl copy of ‘Veedon Fleece’ in the vocal booth in front of me, in the dorky sense. I think there were candles around, which is really tacky, but hey, I needed to channel Van the Man!
For the first time ever, overweight people outnumber average people in America. Doesn’t that make overweight the average then? Last month you were fat, now you’re average – hey, let’s get a pizza!
I told a couple friends about it… I was like, ‘Hey, might be trans, might want to look at doing hormone therapy, just letting you know’… and they were like, ‘Yeah cool. Who cares? Like, whatever, awesome.’
At The Verve’s first-ever gig, I said that we were gonna blow this local band off the stage. It was only in the local Wigan paper, and they rang me to ask why I was being so aggressive. I just went, ‘Hey man, it’s like boxing. I’m just trying to sell a ticket.’
I was thinking about what would it be, what would the characters be like, and it just suddenly dawned on me that, hey, nobody is doing an underseas show. So I started drawing these weird invertebrate animals, various characters like crawfish and starfish and squids and sponge.
I think it’s all machismo – ‘Come on, you’ve got to guard your guy, man. If you can’t guard your guy, then you can’t play defence.’ A lot of it is accountability, where you say, ‘Hey, you’re matched up with him. Go do your job.’ The zone kind of sometimes moves a lot of pieces around.
We had a pretty good life, growing up in Taiwan, and I think my dad really made a concerted effort to say hey, we’re going to take a chance and go halfway around the world so that my kids can have more opportunities.
I think you always want to have a project where it’s not about you: where you’re serving it. Where it has needs, and you’re trying to meet those needs, so you’re trying to lift it out of you and put it out there and then say to people, ‘Hey, I think that’s it; let’s head that way.’
You and I can be busy, and we take a vacation from work. You can’t take a break from being poor. You can’t say, ‘Hey I’ve had enough of worrying about money, I’m just going to be rich for a couple of weeks until I’ve recovered.’
Hey, look at this guy Kenny G. with his thing, walking up and down the aisles of the concert hall and running off the stage and playing the same time. It’s old hat!
Jerome Richardson
There are a lot of musicians I’ve met on Twitter where it was like, ‘Hey, I like your music’ – and then I ended up meeting them and it turned into a friendship.
So many times, when you’re doing a job, you feel like you’re a nuisance at times to people, intruding on their space when you ask them questions; maybe they don’t want to deal with you at the time. And now, it’s, ‘Hey, welcome, where’s Craig?’ Whereas, now, it’s kind of different.
I’ve heard, ‘May the Force be with you’ about as many times as, ‘Hey, how you doing?’
I’m the type of guy who, right as I’m taking off, I’m deciding, ‘Hey, where do I want to go today?’
I think one of the nicest things that we created as a generation was just the fact that we could say, ‘Hey, I don’t like white people.’
When we started doing YouTube, the goal was, hey, let’s make stuff that we want to see, that entertains us.
If I’m hanging around too much, my wife and kids say, ‘Hey, why don’t you go downstairs and start a new novel?’
I think what Ripple is doing is not just, ‘Hey, how do we enable banks‘ – it’s a broader effort in how can you enable an Internet of Things and connected devices that are economic actors to pass a couple pennies.
Once you get the kids raised and the mortgage paid off and accomplish what you wanted to do in life, there’s a great feeling of: ‘Hey, I’m free as a bird.’
I knew from a young age that I was attracted to guys. I didn’t know if it was a phase… I didn’t want to say, ‘Hey, I might be gay. I might be bi.’ I just didn’t know… I wanted to find who I was and make sure I knew what was comfortable. So I didn’t tell anyone growing up.
Michael Sam
Despite what people think, I was such a rule follower at school. I loved the whole slacker look, like, ‘Hey, I don’t care, whatever,’ but if I didn’t turn my homework in, I would panic.
Cancer’s like the ultimate excuse. Who’s gonna say, ‘Oh, no, you have to show up for this one?’ ‘Hey, I got cancer. I can’t be there.’ It’s the ultimate eraser.
Nobody thinks of themselves as sexy, really. Some days you go, ‘Hey, I’m not going too bad today.’ But if you try and be sexy, you’ll never be sexy.
I’d rather try and cram in another two gags than leave a pause to say, ‘Hey, wasn’t that bit funny?’
Hey, nothing grows to the sky. There will be a successor movement. Right now it’s nascent.
Peter Brimelow
So much of what comes out of the faith community seems so dour and somber, and we want to say, ‘Hey, we’re real people. You can be a person of faith and really enjoy life and laugh.’
When I first got into the major label system, they were like, ‘Hey, you’re great – now write with a million people so we can get songs.’ That was something I hadn’t done before, and the songwriters I was working with had worked on some massive numbers – like ‘True Colours.’ One of the guys wrote ‘Livin On A Prayer.’
Some people are a little bit afraid about the future because they see all these gadgets and gizmos coming down the pike and they think they’re too old to learn all this new stuff. But eventually they begin to realize, ‘Hey, some of this stuff is useful.’
Hey, I don’t drink or go wild anymore, but I can still be the life of the party.
Kevin Federline
When there’s not ten feet of snow on the ground, I ride my bike down the streets of New York, and I literally hear two things out of car windows as cabs pass by me: They either yell, ‘Hey, dummy,’ or ‘Hey, Mayhem.’
Dean Winters
I think my first story sold for $550. This was in 1954, and it seemed like quite a lot of money, and I said to myself, ‘Hey, I’m a professional writer now.’
The director will be like, ‘Hey, great take. Do you want to see the playback?’ And I’m like, ‘Definitely not.’
Hey, I fool the camera. I’m a liar, a magician.
People come up to me on the street and make some little joke – like they’ll say, ‘Excuse me, sir, what time is it?’ And I’ll say, you know, ‘5:15,’ and they’ll say, ‘Hey! Made you talk!’ And that’s merely a way of saying, ‘I know your work and I like you.’
Failing doesn’t have to mean not succeeding. It can be, ‘Hey we tried that. We can go forward, smarter.’
About once every four days, someone comes up to me and is like, ‘Hey, I know you from somewhere.’
Carla Gallo
I really liked Stevie Ray Vaughn, so hey – I tried to look like him.
I was playing a gig in Greece in September 2003 and this guy walks up to me and says, ‘Hey Tiesto I just heard you play; you’re amazing. I want you to play at the opening ceremony of the Olympics.’ I looked at him, like, ‘Sure pal!’
Hey, the TV was my friend. As a child, I always said, ‘I want to live in there someday.’
All through Miami, the guys who grew up with me hitting at the place I hit, they all call me Flaco. Nobody calls me J.D. It’s like, ‘Hey, Flaco.’
My plan for the online version of ‘Famous Monsters‘ is to become an online ‘uncle‘ to an entire group of people who have never read or heard of ‘Famous Monsters of Filmland.’ The site will not be written in a scholarly fashion. It will be written in a playful, ‘Hey, check this out!’ kind of way.
Harry Knowles
I have met so many of my idols – like Ray Charles, Brian Setzer – all these cats that are legendary musicians. If they had said to me, ‘Hey man, I’m busy,’ it would have crushed my soul.
The hard part for me was not the wrestling – it was showing emotion, telling a story, and being able to connect with fans. Coming out as Ric Flair‘s daughter and being called athletically gifted, it’s hard to say, ‘Hey, like me! You can relate to me!’ It wasn’t working, so I completely switched my character.
I gave a funny speech at my wife’s birthday party, and I’m thinking, ‘Hey, I’ve still got it.’
But hey, controversy – well, it hasn’t hurt me in 50 years.
Pesticides came about after the first world war. Some brainy petrochemical money maker said, ‘Hey, that mustard gas worked great on people, maybe we could dilute it down and spray it on our crops to deal with pests.’
If you’re just saying, hey, I’m doing this. I’m working to make money. I’m working to increase my status. If that’s all there is, I think you will find out that it’s meaningless.
Before I go to those teams, I say, ‘Hey, I’m a Muslim and I have to pray five times a day.’ And they respect it so much that they give me a prayer room. So before the game, after the game, before practice, before I fly out, I can go to that room whenever I want and pray.
I wouldn’t wear turtlenecks. That I’m not envious of. But who knows? I might sneak out a few things and hope and pray that no one says, ‘Hey, didn’t you wear that when you were playing an enormous geek on TV?’
One of my best friends was gay and Mormon, and I saw how conflicted he was. It was the first time my faith didn’t align with my mind and heart and the first time I was being taught something at church that I was like, ‘Hey, this doesn’t seem right.’
I remember having a feeling like, ‘I can’t believe this is happening!’ Two years ago I was auditioning for The Disney Channel, and now Paul Rudd is saying, ‘Hey man, congratulations on your Emmy nomination!’
There’s no one here in America swimming the Pacific Ocean – or the Atlantic, or the Caribbean – to leave this place. The reason why is because of the freedom. Freedom for a man to mark out his own destiny. It’s not, ‘Hey, you have so much.’
Regret should be handled swiftly, and you shouldn’t hold onto it. People spend their entire lives regretting what they didn’t do and what they should’ve done. Hey, man, you did what you did.
I even steal bases. I hear all the time that I’m slow, but hey, I have 66 stolen bases.
In the NFL, there’s never really that moment where you’re like, Hey, I made the team. Or: Hey, you made the practice squad. You just kind of show up the next day and go to work. Nobody really says anything. You just kind of go to work.
I think the most insidious version of crunch is when you say, ‘Hey, I’m working for this triple-A video game; I personally want it to be as good as possible, so I’m going to stay tonight until 10 P.M. to finish this feature.’
Casting is really exciting. With ‘Twilight,’ I wasn’t involved at all with the casting in the original. They kept me in the loop, which was great. They’d be like, ‘Hey Kristen Stewart’s gonna do it’ and I was like, ‘Really? Awesome.’
You grow up dreaming about playing in the World Series since you’re a little kid. I remember the days in the back yard with my parents playing whiffle ball, saying, ‘Hey, it’s Game 7 of the World Series, are you gonna win or are you gonna lose?’
The guys on ‘Game of Thrones’ trust me implicitly to take care of the action stuff. I don’t mess with their drama, but they allow me to come up with ideas like ‘Hey, what if the giant had a bow? And what if he shot some guy off the wall?’ With ‘Constantine,’ too, they really trust me to scare the audience.
Sometimes we just sit around and sit on our hands and don’t do anything because it’s like, ‘Hey, that’s not my problem.’ You can’t do that when you’re a superhero.
I remember having a feeling like, ‘I can’t believe this is happening!’ Two years ago I was auditioning for The Disney Channel, and now Paul Rudd is saying, ‘Hey man, congratulations on your Emmy nomination!’
I can’t take ‘The Room’ and show it to an agent and say, ‘Hey man, cast me in something.’ It’s an alien film.
I had dreams of becoming an officer and a gentleman. But hey: One out of two ain’t bad.
I’m honestly not the kind of person who wants to step up to a podium, test the microphone and be like, ‘Hey, I’m homosexual and this is who I am, hear me roar.’ That’s not who I am.
I used to be able to pitch them on the basis of the zombie action, and I could hide the message inside that. Now, you can’t. The moment you mention the word ‘zombie,’ it’s got to be, ‘Hey, Brad Pitt paid $400 million to do that.’
I don’t know if I ever realized, initially, that I didn’t tic when I was so focused on my acting. I think it was after I had already done it a few years, when I went, ‘Hey, interesting that this happens.’
People have talked about it off and on, and there have been people who have stood up for me and have said, ‘Hey, we know her, and she is a good person.’
Tonya Harding
Vegas to me is a place like Hollywood or New York where you can walk around and people recognize you but it’s like, hey, that’s cool, and then we go on with our lives.
The greatest way for people to experience a comedy is to go in not knowing anything about it. But because of marketing, it’s impossible. Marketing meaning that in order to get people to come you can’t just go, ‘Hey, there’s a great movie – we’re not going to show you anything from it but trust us!’
When I see someone filming me, I don’t usually think, ‘No, man, don’t put this up online!’ I’d think, ‘Hey man, you don’t get to go to shows very often, put down the camera and enjoy it!’ I love going to theatre and to shows so much.
I’ve always wondered what it would be like if somebody from outer space landed with three heads. Then all of a sudden everybody else wouldn’t look so bad, huh? Well, OK you’re a little different from me but, hey, ya got one head.
I spent so many years with people saying, ‘Hey, you’re like America’s boyfriend!’
I had a dream that my dad passed away and that Jesus came into the room and he was basically knocking on my door, saying, ‘Hey, you need to find out more about me.’ So that Sunday morning I ended up going to church, and that’s when I got saved.
I’m big on story structure. I studied with John Truby, who mapped out story by means of moral wants and needs, and that’s what I do. Hey, so does John Irving.
When I wasn’t in the band, Korn management hit me up every year or two asking me to rejoin. I would do book signings, and they would send someone to say, ‘Hey, it would be cool to have you back one day.’
I’m not going to lie: it’s tough. There were a couple of games where you’re down, and you’re in a really dark place, and you don’t know if you’re ever going to come out of it. You realize, ‘Hey, I’m having a bad day,’ but you realize there are people out there having worse days.
My nickname is 100 percent fan-based. It’s not like one day I said, ‘Hey, I want to be named Country Breakfast.’
I try to be outraged by things that other people are just very accepting of, as though they’re normal and can’t be changed. A lot of what I write about is, ‘Hey, you know, this stuff is really awful, and it doesn’t need to be, and that’s why it’s so offensive.’ Things should be better.
Pesticides came about after the first world war. Some brainy petrochemical money maker said, ‘Hey, that mustard gas worked great on people, maybe we could dilute it down and spray it on our crops to deal with pests.’
A lot of people in Hollywood are on that ego trip. They think they’re more than somebody else. I’ve told a lot of stars in my career, ‘Hey, man you’re looking down on the people who made you. lf you keep doing that, you’re gonna fall back down.’
When Savage died, that was hard on me. I didn’t even hardly know Randy, but I just turned 51 this past December, and he was 58 when he died. I’m like, ‘Hey man, just because I’m in that line of work, do I have an expiration date? Am I supposed to go?’ I always wonder, but I don’t harbor it.
When David Fincher called me up a few years ago and said, ‘Hey, I’d like you to score this film ‘The Social Network,’ I said, ‘I’m flattered, but I really don’t have any real experience scoring films, and I’d rather not screw it up on a high-profile project. And I like you and I don’t want to compromise our friendship.’
Hey, I’m just looking for an excuse to retire so I can play summer league baseball, go coach my nephews, play pickup basketball. I’ve always had that ability to move on to the next thing.
I literally will write Shonda Rhimes, the creator of ‘Grey‘s,’ an e-mail once a month or so and just say, ‘Hey, I love you and thank you.’ That was my moment. Because of that, I’m doing ‘Magic City.’
Even at 10 years old, Jonathan and I started saying things like, ‘Hey, what about this for the property?’ And I remember my parents saying, ‘You’re 10. What do you know about real estate? Go play with toys.’
Acting is not hiding to me; it’s revealing. We give you license to feel. ‘Hey, she’s crying, so it’s okay if I cry, too.’ That’s the most important thing in the world, because when you stop feeling, that’s when you’re dead.
In America, you can’t say to your family, ‘Hey, I’m off to L.A. to make it as a songwriter; sorry I can’t pay for the dentist.’
I think it’s important some people do publicly go ‘Hey, I’m not straight and I’m not gay. I’m somewhere in the middle and that’s ok.’
Hey, I was raised in the church. I was an altar boy and a choir member. I almost became a priest – until common sense grabbed hold of me.
I have never had a plan. Things happen to me, and, of course, I make friends who later say, ‘Hey, you know who would be good for this? McKean would be good for this.’ And they hire me, and if they like me, they hire me again, or the word gets out.
I love being. There’s so much wisdom in it. You wake up in the morning and you think, Hey, isn’t it great just being?
I always thought that the fastest way for me to get ahead and get noticed and to do well was to make my act very accessible. When I first started, I talked about family stuff, my dog, my cat. It was all I knew back then; I wasn’t forcing anything, but I wasn’t like, ‘Hey, don’t you hate doing homework?’
Nick Swardson
Kane is a band I formed with my best friend Steve Carlson. We just got together and started playing guitar. He was playing some old school rock and roll, and we got together and thought, ‘Hey, let’s take this on the road.’
We’re about getting all the people who want to compete with Samsung to be able to build devices. So we’re kind of down at the guts level saying, ‘Hey, we can give you the hardware, the sensor platform, the software you need to go build your own one.’
Renee James
It is a weird feeling to have people go, ‘Hey Chris‘ like they know me. But, number one, 99 percent of my experiences have been really cool. People couldn’t be nicer and more positive.
Pop culture, it’s crazy. There’s all this violence in video games. In ‘Call of Duty,’ people are literally just blowing other people up. Hey, let’s protect your country from your couch while eating your sandwich.
You could ask yourself, ‘Hey, when you were 20, are you the same person?’ You’re not. You may have the same values, you might look a little older, you might have some things that are the same, but your heart, everything about you, starts growing, changing – good or bad. It just depends on how you approach life.
I’m going to do all I can, control what I can control and I think one thing I can do beyond just playing the best I can is to start really coaching and leading other people so that I can never walk off the field saying, ‘Hey, I did my part but so-and-so didn’t,’ that can’t happen.
The one complaint about the Internet that I wholeheartedly endorse is that most of these tools have been designed to peck at us like ducks: ‘Hey, there’s a new reply to your comment! Come look at it!’
A lot of people attack music like the Soulja Boy music, but hey man, my kids love that.
Pimp C
I was sitting in the nosebleeds eating hot dogs and watching Georges St. Pierre win the world title from Matt Hughes. Like never in my wildest dreams if someone would have tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Hey, seven years from now you’re going to be down there doing the same thing’ would I have believed them.
A quiet, non-attention grabbing, ‘Hey, just wanted to say that I enjoy your work’ is perfect.
I was a hard-times governor. I had to steer my state through the deepest recession since the 1930s. But hey, tough times don’t last and tough people do. And can I tell you that Virginians are tough people? We are tough people.
I’m not really too worried about the mystique of Jon Jones. Because I know Jon Jones’ core. I remember when Jon Jones used to come up to me and say, ‘Hey man, what’s it like when everybody wants to take pictures with you?’ So I know Jon Jones.
Hey, if we didn’t overcharge for our product – guess what – people wouldn’t have to buy used games.
The good Lord is amazing; He opens up doors. I was close to abandoning the dream, and He was like, ‘Hey, slow down there, buddy.’
David Nail
I expect to see a flat disk up there. I don’t have an agenda. If it’s a round Earth or a ball, I’m going to come down and say, ‘Hey guys, I’m bad. It’s a ball, OK?’
Everyone must turn to Infowars as a standard to be saved. Tell folks, ‘Hey, it’s the most censored thing in the world for a reason. Jones is dialed in. Jones knows what’s going on.’
Alex Jones
Before ‘Twilight,’ occasionally I would get the ‘Hey are you that girl from that movie?’ but no one knew my first and last name. The fans of the saga are amazing, and it’s very flattering.
There’s a tendency on the part of Americans, all of us, to say, ‘Hey, the Cold War is over, the Soviet Union is gone, we don’t have to worry about these guys again.’ We always have to be worried about them, we always have to be concerned about them, and we have to be well-informed.
‘SpongeBob,’ ‘Hey Arnold!,’ ‘Rocket Power.’ I watched all those shows, man.
I don’t think anyone’s worth $100 million if Michael Jordan wasn’t, but hey, that’s what Abe Pollin thought I was worth, and if someone puts $100 million in front of you, you’re gonna take it, too.
When you’re 17 and a record label says, ‘Hey, do pop,’ you listen.
You learn a lot as a coach when you sit back and tell someone what to do, and then you realize, ‘Hey, I need to start doing that myself.’ I think coaching can improve a fighter‘s game tremendously.
Frankie Edgar
I really like red hair. I think if you have brown hair, you want blond hair; if you have blond hair, you want blue hair. We always want what we don’t have. It takes a while to admit, Hey, it’s just part of me.
I want to go and fight the best guys in the world and show people I’m the best. And hey, if something doesn’t go my way – I don’t think that’s gonna happen. I realize that’s a possibility in competition, and that’s what happens.
Every time a U.S.A. Today slides underneath my door, it’s like they’re saying, ‘Hey, you’re not that smart, right?’
I want the next 16-year-old kid who looks like me to know he’s not automatically the bad guy. Hopefully, that kid can look at Mustafa Ali and say, ‘Hey, he’s not the bad guy, and I don’t have to be, either.’
It’s very unusual on ‘Game of Thrones’ for there to be a deleted scene because the scripts are pretty locked in. There’s rarely a reason to say, ‘Hey, we don’t need this scene.’
I was a very private person. I never had an open social media account. So, for me to walk down the street and have people say, ‘Hey, Tan!’ I turn around thinking, ‘Do I know you?’
I can be a rock star with a television show and still have a self-esteem problem. So it’s nice to have your dad go, ‘Hey Melissa, I’m proud of you – you’re doing good.’
People ask me, ‘Man, are we gonna see one more match?’ And I’ve always said, ‘Hey, never say never, because you never know what you’re gonna do.’
It’s really hard for me to sometimes put myself out there, like ‘Hey, how do you feel about making music together?’ because maybe I’m afraid of rejection or I don’t want to put anybody out. It’s the Southerner in me, like, ‘I don’t mean to bother you but do you mind making a song?’
If I want back in time and said ‘Hey, 10-year-old Jagmeet, you’re gonna grow up and in 30 years you’re gonna be the leader of a national party.’ I’d be like ‘What are you talking about?’
My basic advice to the Chinese with respect to the South China Sea is, ‘Hey, guys, cool it.’
In our marriage, the success of our athletic dreams comes before everything. ‘Hey do you want to watch a movie?’ ‘No, I have a hard workout tomorrow.’
Sometimes people think they know you and they go, ‘Hey!’ and then they realize that they’ve just seen you on the television. That’s kind of funny sometimes.
Sometimes I gotta look in the mirror and say, ‘Hey, they’re still saying you’re too fat, but you’re here! They gotta take it or leave it.’ And in most cases, if they leave it, it’s all good because they don’t need to be in my space anyway.
Kelly Price
I don’t want to be on a soapbox, but I feel like a lot of documentary filmmakers are part of the ancient tradition of writing down notes, of saying, ‘Hey people, hey people!’
A friend of mine – a cameraman at MTV – lost a lot of weight from cycling, and I thought I’d try it, too, thinking whenever you look at a cyclist they all look super-skinny, so hey, why not? But then it turned into such a psychologically satisfying thing.
I don’t like to just talk about nothing, or less than nothing. If it’s something interesting, I’m fine with it, but, ‘Hey, Zack, how is your day?’ People ask that, and somebody actually tells them what happened in their day? I don’t have any real interest in that.
I’m pretty restless in bed, so I can lie there for a couple of hours and be like, ‘Hey, that happened today. What if that happened at a zoo?’ I’ll jot the idea down. Then I’m like, ‘All right, so now that it’s a zoo, that penguin‘s loose,’ or, whatever. I usually start with broad ideas.
Over the years, many young actors have approached me: Vusi Kunene, Sello Maake ka Ncube, and Seputla Sebogodi. They all said, ‘Hey Bra John, let’s do ‘The Island and we want you to direct.’ But somehow, my heart was not in it or I was busy with something else, so I’d say, ‘ja, ja, we’ll do it.’
I love a band that has a banjo, that does group harmonies and yells out the word ‘Hey’ or ‘Woo.’ I live for it.
I’ve said for many, many years, as long as I can ever remember, when I’m asked, ‘Hey, what do you look for first in a quarterback?’ The first thing I look for is accuracy, because the rest of it doesn’t matter.
Whenever you have an animal and bring another one into the house, it’s a very traumatic event. It’s a story as old as bringing home a second child from the hospital, when the first child kind of goes, ‘Hey, aren’t I enough?’
Chris Renaud
Nobody wants to sit where I’m sitting and say, ‘Hey, this is the reality. I did two movies, six guest-star spots and I starred in a one-woman show, and I’m not making any money. I’m on TV every day in every country in the world, and I don’t make any money.’
Beth Broderick
For the first time ever, overweight people outnumber average people in America. Doesn’t that make overweight the average then? Last month you were fat, now you’re average – hey, let’s get a pizza!
You know, ‘people like us,’ it involves… it’s everybody who has struggled, you know what I’m saying? Everybody who has… who has had a difficult time getting to where they want to be, and now they can look at us as examples of, ‘Hey, I can do this because they did it and I see it happening. Maybe I can do it, too.’
We like to crystallize something in the audience’s brain that makes them say, ‘Hey I really want to watch that. I’m really interested in it.’
Gary Goetzman
I didn’t want ‘Ramy’ to be a commercial, like ‘Hey, Muslims are good!’ We’re underrepresented, so the instinct when we get an opportunity like this is to show people that we’re good, that we have the same shared values. What’s more important to me is showing that we have the same flaws.
If I say, ‘Hey, I’m Psy.’ ‘Psy?’ ‘The guy from the video on YouTube?’ ‘Oh.’ I hate that. I’ve got to be more popular than the video. So I need to keep promoting myself.
If I’m out somewhere to eat and people yell, ‘Hey, Red Rifle!’ I’m kind of like, ‘Oh, come on!’ I’ve learned to accept it because I know the name isn’t going anywhere.
Hey, I think it’s easy for guys to hit .300 and stay in the big leagues. Hit .200 and try to stick around as long as I did; I think it’s a much greater accomplishment. That’s hard.
It’s about making small changes at first and adding foods to your diet before you take any away; start with one extra vegetable or fruit at every meal, and hey, presto, that’s 21 portions a week.
Newscorp has always been, for us, very easy to work with and they respect our opinions and let us run the site we wanted to. And, in fact, they wanted to keep us on. They weren’t saying, hey, let’s throw these guys out. They were buying into what MySpace was and the founders, and so it’s been very good for me.
Hard times are when a man has worked at a job for 30 years – 30 years – and they give him a watch, kick him in the butt, and say, ‘Hey, a computer took your place, daddy.’ That’s hard times!
Some people have a misunderstanding about the Army. Some people think, ‘Hey, you’re in the military, and everything is super-hierarchical, and you’re in an environment that is intolerable of criticism, and people don’t want frank assessments.’ I think the opposite is the case.
I always stay with my parents. When you come home, you gotta do that. It’s weird to be like, ‘Hey, I’m at a hotel. Drive 20 minutes to see me, and we’ll have dinner.’
If I’m a guy reading a newspaper, and I hear this actor who I know gets great seats at basketball games, and he’s complaining about being typecast, I think, ‘Hey man, count your blessings.’
It’s become sort of second nature whenever we get into a car to buckle up. It has to be second nature before you get into a car to ask, ‘Hey, who are you here to pick up?’
Bill Clinton was a brilliant politician. If President Obama was a brilliant politician he would have come out before the election and said ‘Hey we’re gonna cut taxes, grow the economy, what I’m doing’s not working, and we’re gonna change course’ like Clinton did.
People see me on the street, and they point to me, and they’re like, ‘Hey! All right, all right, all right!’
I am not a technical drummer at all. I’m more from the Keith Moon/Lars Ulrich school of, ‘Hey, look at me!’ I just get up there and bash.
Genomics is a new idea. Like the PC, it’s not obvious at first that anyone would want one. It’s like, ‘Hey, we’ve already got one genome, why do we need more?’
My first assignment was 12 weeks in Afghanistan. After that, I covered the Indian election for two months. Then I got a phone call saying, ‘Hey, we want you in Brazil,’ and the same happened for Somalia.
Daniel Berehulak
Parents know how to push your buttons because, hey, they sewed them on.
If people think I am gay, yeah, hey that doesn’t bother me. Not at all. What would people think? To me I am such a heterosexual guy. It doesn’t even, I don’t even think about it.
Hey, if I had my choice for social engineering, I’d declare an automatic R-rating for any movie that depicts television commercials. There’s a truly dangerous influence on our children.
Goal scorers are always sniffing things out, but once they realize ‘hey, if I don’t have the puck I can’t score,’ then you have to be a part of the solution so you can get it back so you can score.
I’m not a union guy in the sense that I know a lot about how they operate. But I know fighters. They are individual athletes. This is not a team sport. I think it’s going to be hard to say, ‘Hey, do you mind not fighting on Saturday and walking around the arena with a picket sign instead?’ I just don’t see it.
I feel like after my incident, it really made me realize football is not here forever. I’m all the more anxious to come out here and let my teammates know, ‘Look, hey, this is the same JPP. Missing fingers aren’t going to stop me from playing some ball.’
Hey, I was one of those hip-hop kids who used to hate on things that would become popular.
One of my goals always, when I write music, is that it’s not only me sharing my story with the fans: it’s also a reminder to myself that, ‘Hey, I said this so that I need to grow from it.’
You can be a sex symbol through music or film. Hey, there are some politicians that are sex symbols. Is that something you should fight? No. Sex is very natural.
I hate my name. Especially In Liverpool, when they say Hey, Reet… ‘ it sounds even worse. I don’t think of myself as Rita Tushingham, but my mother’d have a fit if I changed it.
You’ve just gotta go in and write from the heart and write the best material that you can and put it out. If one hits, hey, great. It keeps the legacy going. But you’ve gotta keep doing new material. It’s the future of any band.
It’s so funny because if you tweet your lyrics and then you hear it in a song next week, you’re like, ‘Hey I had that same idea.’ I’m very secretive with my music. We have to send emails password protected. Because once that song gets out, you aren’t selling that thing.
We’re the only ethnic group that says, ‘Hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.’
Growing up, my father was a financial analyst for an oil company. He was just a regular dad. And when I would say, ‘Hey, come see my play,’ he’d say, ‘Sure.’ He’d see one, ‘Oh, good play’ – you know, very typical dad reaction.
I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there, the guy was locking the front door. I said, ‘Hey, the sign says you’re open 24 hours.’ He said, ‘Yes, but not in a row.’
I think it’s pretty crazy when I walk down in the airport and a 12-year-old boy comes up to me and says, ‘Hey, I watched you at the World Cup. Great game! Great job!’ I love that.
Julie Ertz
My parents were out of town and sent me to stay at my grandma‘s house. That’s where I learned how to make pancakes. I served them to all the old ladies who lived on her block. After the meal, they each left a $5 bill next to their plates. I thought, ‘Hey, I’m onto something here.’
‘Hey Dude’ was shot in Arizona, and that took me to the West Coast. We did 65 episodes. It was not a show that a ton of people saw, so it was like doing acting classes and getting paid for it. At that point I had the acting bug. So I went to L.A. to give it a try and never left.
Christine Taylor
I’ve had my ring since I was 12 years old. But for me it’s not something I want to go around saying, ‘Hey, look what I have’, It’s a promise I made to myself and God. I think some people misinterpret that as a trend and think everyone’s getting one.
I don’t generally like things that are too pedestrian. But at the same time, and if I’m in the right mood, hey – I ain’t gonna lie – I listen to Joni Mitchell. I listen to ‘Blue,’ I listen to Miles Davis.
I went into the Verizon store the other day, and the salesman was pretty excited. He was like, ‘Hey Dierks, what can I show you?’ I said, ‘The cheapest, lowest tech phone you have.’ I think he was disappointed. Everybody else was running out for the new iPhone 6, but I got a flip phone.
But hey, man, if I summited K2 in winter, without oxygen, frost-nipped fingers are a small price to pay. It was worth it. Think about it, things could have been a lot worse.
The only way I could get comfortable around people was to make them laugh. I was an obedient girl, and humor was my one form of rebellion. I used comedy to deflect. Like, ‘Hey, check out my zit!’ – you know, making fun of yourself before someone else has a chance to.
You know, I’m the 1st black solo MC from Detroit. I didn’t do the 50 Cent sales but hey… I got a long career, I’m still young and I’m trying to bring really good music.
Obie Trice
I don’t want to harm my government. I want to help my government. But the fact that they are willing to completely ignore due process, they’re willing to declare guilt without ever seeing a trial, these are things that we need to work against as a society and say, ‘Hey, this is not appropriate.’
Ever since they announced that golf would be returning to the Olympics, I thought, ‘Hey, I wanna get myself on the team.’ It has always been my dream.
Lydia Ko
I was in awe of my father. His generosity was beyond anything I ever could imagine. The reason I say he’s like Don Corleone is he was always breaking off hundreds. I’d be like, ‘Hey Dad, I’m going to McDonald’s with my friends,’ and he’d just whip out a hundred: ‘Here, go, have fun.’
My voice right now, hey, listen. I don’t know how long it’s going to last.
Eydie Gorme
I feel like I’m a realized artist, but hey, the good news is I can get better, and I’m going to continue to aim for that.
I’ve run into more people walking in L.A. than if I drove. Because you stand out so much if you walk. People from my past have stopped their cars and said, ‘Hey!’ But if I was in a car, they never would’ve seen me.
I want to be a person who says ‘Hey, if something is going on, come and tell me about it.’
It doesn’t bother me when someone is totally unaware of anything I’ve ever been in or done and says, ‘Hey, man, I really like your music. I’ve never heard of you.’ That doesn’t bother me at all.
Hey, it’s been a great ride for me, a great life. Everything I have I owe to baseball. Baseball owes me nothin‘. Ain’t nobody has to give me nothin’. I would be embarrassed if I had a day somewhere. I don’t want no day. I want friends, to live my life the way I wanna live it.
Don Zimmer
That’s the greatest compliment I can get: when somebody from Key West says, ‘Hey, Bubba.’ That means I’m in!
Fereydun, that’s my dad’s name. My grandmother, my dad’s mom, when she was pregnant, she was dating a man from Persia, a Persian gentleman. It wasn’t his child, but he was still very supportive and said, ‘Hey, this is a great name,’ and so it stuck. So that’s what she named him.
And, hey, I’m not under the illusion that everything’s just going to be hunky-dory work wise forever. I’ve never been under that illusion. Things could go away tomorrow.
Hey, I was raised in the church. I was an altar boy and a choir member. I almost became a priest – until common sense grabbed hold of me.
We’ll go out and we’ll be playing in front of 15,000 people and say, ‘Hey, we’re going to do three new songs from something we just recorded‘ and 5,000 people get up and go get a hot dog and a beer and they don’t come back until they hear the opening strings of ‘The Joker‘ or ‘Fly Like an Eagle.’
The quickest way to defuse fear or insecurity or anger is usually humor. I think comics figure that out quickly, and, once you figure it out, you think, ‘Hey, if I can do this and get paid, that would be kind of cool.’
I showed everyone the medal and they said, ‘Ooh, I can’t believe how heavy it is,’ Sometimes they were more interested in the medal than in me. I was like, ‘Hey, what about me?’
We want to show people in the U.S. and Europe that hey, here in Southeast Asia, we have so much artists brimming with talent and so deserving. We needed to tap into that so that the West can take notice and sign them up, too.
A lot of people don’t like bumper stickers. I don’t mind bumper stickers. To me a bumper sticker is a shortcut. It’s like a little sign that says ‘Hey, let’s never hang out.’
I go into a young film director’s office these days and he says, ‘Hey man, I know who you are. I grew up watching ‘McHale’s Navy‘. And I think, ‘Oh boy, here we go again’.
Hey, everybody is entitled to think what they want to think.
We became friends as we became a band. Our friendship evolved as the band evolved. It had its ups and downs, but it was mostly ups for the four of us. We got along well almost all of the time. Hey! We liked each other and we still do.
Dave Blood
I obviously have a knack for getting on paper what a lot of people have thought and didn’t realize they thought. And they say, ‘Hey, yeah!’ And they like that.
Hey, I’m a good software engineer, but I’m not exactly known for my fashion sense. White socks and sandals don’t translate to ‘good design sense’.
I think my purpose was just to get out and sing. I love to sing. I wasn’t even in it for the – you know, the prize. I was, like, ‘Hey, man, I’m going to sing.’
The last thing I want my child to see is Dad running around in the middle of the pack. That would really upset me. And that would upset him. I would be embarrassed to take him to school with kids saying, ‘Hey, how’d your dad do this weekend?’ ‘Well, he finished fifth or sixth‘.
Dan Wheldon
When you blame yourself, you learn from it. If you blame someone else, you don’t learn nothing, cause hey, it’s not your fault, it’s his fault, over there.
Joe Strummer
But, hey I did everything the right way and earned my spot in this game, nothing was given to me.
At the end of Season 1 of ‘Cheers‘, it was the lowest rated show in all of network television… So we turn to ‘Bill Cosby’; when he came to Thursday night, he just exploded. And once the audience was there, we said, ‘Hey, by the way, we also have this other great show. It’s called ‘Cheers’.’
I was at the grocery store just buying lemons, and a person turns to me and says, ‘Hey, you’re the kid in the horror movie, right? Can I get a picture?’ It was really random.
Milly Shapiro
Sometimes when I’m in the editing room and there’s a new person there, like a music editor or a post person that I don’t really know, I’m like, ‘Oh, you shouldn’t be in here. This is too personal – you can’t watch this.’ But then I’m like, hey dummy, you’re about to show this to the whole world.
My main focus is to always try to be myself first, and then, hey, if I wear a cool jacket, that’s a bonus.
Prior to ‘The Shield,’ basic cable was just a wasteland of reruns and NASCAR. When we came along, I think there was a collective, ‘Hey, if they can do that, why can’t we?’ from the basic-cable networks of the world. We ended up being the cornerstone for a network, and a great one.
Michael Chiklis
There have been a couple of times when kids that weren’t nice to me in high school are like, ‘Hey, man!’ And I’m just like, ‘Yeah. Thank you very much.’
Pete Davidson
We were driving by the local athletic association in Orange Park, Florida, and there was this sign for T-ball signups. I was maybe 6 or 7, and my dad looked at me and said, ‘Hey, do you wanna give this a try?’
I don’t want to be someone saying ‘Hey, why don’t you use my boy?’ You can ask Mr. McMahon or anybody. Never once. Cody calls his own shots.
I think, hey, everybody has a right to change their mind.
I don’t think Jack Nicholson has ever called me Stephen. He’s like, ‘Hey, Dorff. How are ya?’
When you endorse a Republican, everyone sort of frowns on you. I don’t know why, but hey.
When you come to America, it’s a very serious thing. It’s not like you arrive and they say, ‘Hey, come on! Do movies!’ I can’t just be hopping around. I have to focus and be still and make sure that I put the time and effort in. Because if I don’t, I could lose it like that.
People still come up to me and say, ‘Hey, ‘Teen Wolf!’ ‘Teen Wolf Too’ closed a week after it opened. Where did they see it?
