    "But you’re looking for something. Maybe that’s the special secret of life. Who knows if you’ll find your quarry, but you’ll keep your eyes open. That’s not half bad, son. That’s not half bad."

    "L.A. is everything, it’s everywhere. From here in Malibu to Burbank, where NBC studios is – that’s 40 miles. And down to Anaheim, to Disneyland, that’d be 60 miles. But to cross that distance here is more difficult than circumnavigating the whole world.
