* IntercourseWithYou: "Are You Satisfied?"



* WhatBeautifulEyes: With those piercing hazel peepers (definitely NOT blue, despite what some would have you believe), then heck yes.

* ''The Leif Garrett Special'' (1979)

They appeared in many television and film spots together, where some of the storylines resulted in rather [[IncestuousCasting awkward situations]]. However, they were mostly cast as brother and sister, invoking RealLifeRelative on many occasions.


Added DiffLines:

* LikesOlderWomen: Well, when he was in his teens at least.
-->''"I was partying with the girls ... and their mothers."''


Added DiffLines:

** ''Art of a Bullet'' hits particularly close to home in how Leif's character is portrayed, as well as the events he goes through. (Drugs, jail, past trauma etc.)

* TheCameo: As an actor he's had quite a few of these, but one worthy of note is his self-parodying one on ''FamilyGuy''.
