1[on the panel at the United Nations with Mary McDonnell] There is no race but the human race. So say we all.
2[on Lupe Ontiveros] There were people who would stop her and say things. She'd explain she felt the same way they did. As an actor, she had this incredible ability to make you believe.
3(2000) I love to drive. It's one of the most pleasurable things to me. I have a 1986 Porsche--it's got over 100,000 miles on it. Most people don't drive their Porsches at all, but I drive mine like most people drive their Volkswagen.
4(2000, on an ideal day getting away from it all) I would drive to Joshua Tree and spend the night there in my sleeping bag. The desert--it's spiritual and Joshua Tree has some wonderful flatlands and rock formations. There are places to stay too, little hotels. But sleeping outside is what's wonderful. It's so darkly clear, and there's no light from the city so the stars are very impressive.
5I was the highest-paid actor -- per word -- in the history of television! (commenting on his role as "Lt. Castillo" on Miami Vice (1984))
6On Miami Vice (1984) and Battlestar Galactica (2004): "Miami", although it took place among policemen, wasn't about reality. It exploited reality to entertain. "Battlestar" is another thing. Despite it being set in space, it deals with real stuff.
7Sometimes you gotta do things that you don't really want to do. But you don't do them for money.
