Todays Quote
(and Birthday boy)

A laugh is a surprise. And all humor is physical. I was always athletic, so that came naturally to me.
Chevy Chase
 Every Vacation movie didn't just make the studio money. They each made the studio a lot of money.
Chevy Chase

I made about 28 movies, and I think about five of them were good.

Chevy Chase
I tell the person I won't take a picture or sign the autograph, but I will shake their hand. That kind of personal touch is all they're really seeking.
Chevy Chase

Once I got married and had kids, I moved away from romantic roles, because it seemed wrong to have my 3-year-old wondering why Daddy was kissing someone else.

Chevy Chase
 We never could have performed live for an hour and a half every week if we were doing drugs.
Chevy Chase
