There is the list of some quotes of Peter Scolari:
  • If 'Tom Hanks' were willing to do it with me. I mean, I couldn't do it with anybody else!
  • [Who worked with other comedy mates all the while received training]: People I work with there saw a comedian in me. I'm still most at home with them.
  • [About "It Must Be Him" is more on the absurd side]: He's visited by his dead parents and occasionally breaks into song.
  • Unquestionably. I know no actors of my generation who haven't experienced it. We're coming up against our own resident pride and the frailty of ego. And sure, maybe that has something to do with why Kenny Solms and our director, Dan Kutner, sought me out to do this role. I think to some extent they just wanted me to bring life to the role, if not my life experience, but I have both. About a year after Bosom Buddies, I was suddenly a regular on Newhart, and I was there almost seven years. And then, somewhere in the mid-1990s, I ended up doing a TV series version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. I thought at that time: 'Wow, what's going on here, this isn't a prime-time series, I'm not going to get Emmy-nominated for a show that airs at 5 in the afternoon.' It's all the hobgoblin of your mind telling you that you should have more, or that you'll never have what you had before. If I've gotten nowhere else, at least I've gotten over that hump of believing in my own hype. Now I believe in the importance of where it is that I'm sitting in my career.
  • [About 'Bob Newhart' wanting him for a co-starring role "Newhart" (1982) ]: So, Barry Kemp [I think] introduces me, and we have an actor who's in 'Bosom Buddies,' and Bob leans in, so that everyone can hear in a mock whisper, stage whisper, and he says, 'I told you to get the other guy!'
  • [Of 'Bob Newhart' , who played Dick Loudin]: He mastered the craft of secrecy on the last episode of Newhart, where he hid Suzanne Pleshette from even the production staff.
  • [Of 'Bob Newhart' ]: Bob, this is a male story. It's like that male bonding kind of story, we play golf together, many, too many times, a terrible, terrible game. And he went to hit the three went off the muddy fairway, and beautiful golfer, beautiful swing, just electrifying thing in this rainstorm, and looked out for it, and didn't see him, he didn't see it anywhere because he had driven the ball directly into the button, hadn't left his. It's the point of disembarkation.
  • [When asked if there was any dirt about 'Bob Newhart' , who played Dick Loudin]: No, there was no dirt on Bob Newhart, let's be very clear on that point. There's no dirt, he said, 'What?,' he said, 'What he did, what?' No, but there some things.
