If people want to think I get drunk and stay out all night, let 'em. That's how I got here, you know.

I can't stand an actor or actress who tells me acting is hard work. It's easy work. Anyone who says it isn't never had to stand on his feet all day dealing blackjack.

[on Jerry Lewis] At some point, he said to himself, "I'm extraordinary, like Charles Chaplin". From then on, nobody could tell him anything. He knew it all.

You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime.

When Jerry Lewis and I were big, we used to go to parties, and everybody thought I was big-headed and stuck up, and I wasn't. It was because I didn't know how to speak good English, so I used to keep my mouth shut.
