Quotable Quotes:
"I've never been in a show with all guys. We don't have one girl. I thought that they should get a girl, one girl--one naked girl--just to be a towel girl or something like that because I mean, we always objectify women but we get objectified I think from time to time in the show so it's nice to mix it up once in a while." - on Take Me Out to Broadway.com (02/03)
