Quotes

"In my mind, when God made women, he did an amazing job. I think girls are just perfect."

"I couldn't be happier if I tried. I'm in what I regard as being the greatest job I could ever have dreamed of with my best friends. But just when you sit back and rest on your laurels and go 'Great, Rush Of Blood... got four out of five in that magazine,' then you hear Hot In Herre by Nelly or something and think, 'God, we haven't got anything as good as that'. It's constantly trying to compete with what you think is brilliant!"
