Personal Quotes (1)

It's not just putting people with disabilities in the movies - it's putting them in and letting them be a wide range of characters. Some of them are funny, some of them are not, some of them are nice, some of them are jerks. They're just like everybody else. If a guy came up to us and he was physically disabled or something and he was mad at us for something we did, it would kill us. Me or Pete - it would kill us.
