[explaining his and Stan Laurel’s success] The world is full of Laurel and Hardys. I saw them all the time as a boy at my mother’s hotel. There’s always the dumb, dumb guy, who never has anything bad happen to him, and the smart guy who’s even dumber than the dumb guy, only he doesn’t know it.

[his usual response when asked about how they made the films] You better ask Stan.
