->I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the street, and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching our [=TV=]s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be! We all know things are bad. ''Worse'' than bad; they're crazy.

->So I paid for Cas for five nights up in the, uh, honeymoon suite. I told the manager, 'Do not disturb no matter what.' You know what he said to me? 'Yeah. Don't sweat it. Wanna buy some dope?' ''Dope''. We ought to stick around here, [[CompoundInterestTimeTravelGambit buy some stock in Microsoft.]]

->Now, let me tell you about the time [[Creator/JackNicholson Nicholson]] and I were, like those poor souls in Paris, targeted over a depiction of [[TheProphetMuhammad the Muslim prophet.]] Scary? YOU BET! Did we survive it? [[CrazyAwesome EVANS ALWAYS ESCAPES UNSCATHED.]] 1972. Creator/JaneFonda is the hottest star going, and yours truly had just signed her to a nic ne-picture musical deal. Fonda was high on peyote at the time and into Tunisian mysticism, and she demanded that her first picture be a musical in which she falls in love with Mohamed. And I said, ĎBaby! This wonít play in Kansas!í But she just kept banging on her tamtam and insisting on the pic.\\\
So I get the wheels turning on ''KORAN YOU SEE THE LIGHT'' (book and songs penned by Sir Music/EltonJohn!), when suddenly Henryís little girl is kidnapped and brainwashed (she brainwashes VERY easily) by a runaway sect known as the Bloody Hand. Well, at this point, Nicholson (who we signed [[AnswersToTheNameOfGod to play the prophet himself]]) is fed up. He puts on that Mohamed costume and, dragging poor Evans along, walks right into the Bloody Handís compound! And he says to the leader, ĎThatís right. Iím the prophet Mohamed. And right now, Iím seeing you handing the hippie girl over so that we can blow this joint and I can buy a tajine full of coke.í And [[RefugeInAudacity they were so horribly offended that they froze!]] For, like, ten hours! And Irish just walks right out with Fonda and sends her to a Buddhist guru who re-brainwashes her! We ended up making ''{{Film/Barbarella}}'' instead.

->The glam aesthetic that had defined the [[Creator/JonPertwee (Jon) Pertwee]] era was passing by. Always ill-suited for a recession, [[ConspicuousConsumption the over the top gaudiness]] of glam turned bleak rapidly, the distant and detached starmen proving, as we always knew they would, to be egocentric narcissists. In one sense, Pertwee here carries out the course set out for him two seasons earlier -- his very own Rock 'n Roll Suicide.

->You're kidding me, right? They made a sequel to ''Road House''? A movie so bad it actually killed [[TheEighties the 1980s?]] I'm serious, it KILLED a DECADE. How do you even do that? The only other movie I know that can make that claim is the movie that killed the 70s, ''{{Film/Moonraker}}.''

->The pressures of a suffocating conformity, the escalating militarism of the Cold War and the sheer, oppressive boredom of mainstream entertainment - along with [[SpannerInTheWorks trickster elements]] like LSD-25- shattered the staid rationalism of the Establishment and opened more Pandora's boxes than you can count.

->This is the artificial world of 1970s dinner parties where the common man is trying to appear as conservative and as business class as possible by dolloping on the Marie Rose sauce and talking money and politics. It's the era of plastic -- [[StepfordSuburbia coffee makers, Tupperware, fake smiles]] and pretensions of being better than you are.

->Yes, In case you thought ''{{Film/Anchorman}}'' was a ''parody'' of the seventies, now you know: There was in fact a time when guys could plausibly say in public, 'Let me take you to Loveland"... I also like that they introduce themselves with their Zodiac sign before they even tell you their name. I mean, I know there was a running cliche about the {{Leisure Suit Larry}}s of the world using 'What's your sign?' as a pick-up line, I--I just didn't know [[PoesLaw that was a real thing that actually happened]].

->We live in a very special time right now. At no other time in history has there been such mass disillusionment in terms of reliance on governing functions.

->In 1974, my junior year in high school, I was student council vice president and a member of the Honor Society. I was a [[TheCheerleader cheerleader]] and had once again come in runner up in the Miss North Myrtle Beach pageant. That summerI'd also been in the Sun Fun pageant but hadn't won that one either. I lost interest in Cary and fell in love with Jimmy Riddle, smoked pot for the first time and made my dramatic debut in our class production of ''A Portrait of Jenny''.
