Said that his original finished script for The Blues Brothers (1980) was over 300 pages long, roughly the size of a phone book. He even sent it to director John Landis in the guise of a phone book as a joke.

 

He is a huge fan of the TV Series "Dragnet" and the show's star, Jack Webb. So much so that many of his characters are able to rapidly spit out technical information just as Webb did reciting laws and regulations as Sgt. Joe Friday. Some examples of this are: 1. In "The Blues Brothers" when Elwood describes the specifications of the Bluesmobile. 2. In "Ghostbusters" when Dr. Raymond Stanz "orders" the demi-god Zuul to leave New York. 3. In "1941" when Sgt. Tree teaches the Ned Beatty character how to load and fire the anti-aircraft gun. 4. During the "SNL" Weekend Update whenever he would verbally spar with Jane Curtain.

 

We must come to the point where we realize the concept of race is a false one. There is only one race, the human race.

 

My attitude has always been, "Hey, wouldn`t it be funny if -." If this makes me laugh, maybe somebody else will laugh at it, too. That`s really where I`ve always come from. My whole thing is to entertain, make people laugh and to forget about the real world for awhile. It`s not always easy doing that. I`m never completely happy with anything I`ve done. If I`ve been successful with 80 percent of everything I`ve done, then I`m doing all right by the audience and myself.
