1There is only so much I can understand and not screw up.
2It's really cool to know that you've put something together that isn't for a particular audience. It's so often that a TV show can really only speak to one sect of the population, and this really is something that appeals to a worldwide fan base. People who are into the pursuit of knowledge. Their reaction has meant the world to us.
3My parents went crazy when they found out that I had gotten the part in 'Conversations With My Father!' I'd never given acting a thought. They were proud of me and very encouraging.
4The role of Charlie Eppes has changed me. I never imagined I would play a role like this. I lost some weight, grew my hair and now every woman in America over 40 wants to date me. It's their daughters I want to convince. The truth is all this talk makes me blush. Me, I look in the mirror and all I see is this Jewish kid from Queens.
5What's great is that because math is such a universal language, really, our fans come in all shapes and sizes, all ages and genders and races and backgrounds and cultures.
6Charlie's not your conventional mathematician... we sexed him up a little bit.
7I lost some weight, grew my hair and now every woman in America over 40 wants to date me. It's their daughters I want to convince.
8Me, I look in the mirror and all I see is this Jewish kid from Queens.
9Shooting this show is pretty intense. You lose your life. But I have no life, so it's perfect!
10So many shows out there dumb-down the country. It's so admirable to be part of a show that wants people to think.
