Ed O’Neill Quotes

“Come on, Jefferson, it’s just us, some beer, and some Mexican strippers. What could happen?”

Ed O’Neill

“I loved the movie theater so I always saw a lot of movies. And then there was a play I saw in the local paper. They were having auditions for a play of a book I had read. Which was One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey. So I said, “oh, I’ve read this, so I’m perfect for the part of the lead.” His name is escaping me.”

Ed O’Neill

“In the summer we graduated, we flipped out completely, drinking beer, cruising in our cars and beating up each other. It was a crazy summer. That’s when I started to be interested in girls.”

Ed O’Neill

“Back then I said to myself ‘screw football.’ Actually I just took part in this camp as there was nothing better for me to do. They also didn’t draft me because they thought I was too wild and undisciplined.”
