Still Wearing Those PJs

(on acting with John Wayne)
“John Wayne was my father’s favorite actor,
and we went to the local drive-in theatre to see every one of his movies.
We’d have to wear our pajamas,
’cause we’d always fall asleep in the car on the way home,
and when I actually met “The Duke”
I had the strangest sense of deja vu,
like I was still wearing those pajamas.”

“I was always a kid trying to make a buck.
I borrowed a dollar from my dad,
went to the penny candy store,
bought a dollar’s worth of candy,
set up my booth, and sold candy
for five cents apiece.
Ate half my inventory,
made $2.50,
gave my dad back his dollar.”

All the Way to The Bank

.
“Her trademark “cuchi, cuchi” comes from her nickname for her dog, Cuchillo (Spanish for “knife”):
“When Cuchillo was happy, he wiggled. I copied him and I used to say ‘como Cuchi, como Cuchi’.
Everybody thought that it was very cute when I wiggled and say cuchi-cuchi,
and they gave me cookies and candy.
Now, every time I say cuchi-cuchi, people give me money.””
“Around the world, I am known as a great musician.
But in America, I am known as the cuchi-cuchi girl.
That’s okay because cuchi-cuchi has taken me all the way to the bank.”

On the Rotisserie

Three rows of rotisserie chickens
“The first time I was cooking for my wife, Stephanie, way before she was my wife,
I actually put three chickens on the rotisserie and I closed the grill,

Bam Bam vs. Elroy

“Kids today aren’t listening to music audio-only.
They’re picking up a CD and looking at the lyric sheet
and wondering why the pictures aren’t moving around.
Who wants to do that?
It’s like Bam Bam Flintstone hanging with the dinosaurs
vs. Elroy Jetson who’s flying around space.
If I’m a kid, I wanna be kicking it with Elroy.”

should know that they are not marbles, but oatmeal cookies.”
