ROBERT > QUOTES

Personal Life

"I love flags...I think of the men and women of the armed forces that fight to protect peace and freedom. When I was a very small child I went with my grandfather, who was a Lt. Colonel in the US Army and served the country through four wars - WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam - to Ft. Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It is one of my earliest memories".

"Probably Bruce Springsteen, but I'm afraid to meet him. I hold him in such high regard, I think I'd rather just keep my illusion".

"That day I couldn't stop bawling. People were like, 'Quit crying'".

Career

"I think I have a good reputation around town as a hard-working actor who shows up and does his stuff and is professional. I like to think I have a blue collar work ethic. I've never seen acting as a birth right, something that you should take for granted. I think it's a rare kind of job that if you get the opportunity to do, you should be pretty grateful for it. So, I try not to take it for granted"

"Thank god for Roger Corman. The man is a legend: without him, 90 per cent of this motion picture industry wouldn't have jobs. He gave me the part because he'd say, 'Alright, you got to ride this motorcycle and jump off this cliff into this bag.' And I'd do it. It got me a reputation, and people kept hiring me"

"I think 90% of acting is makeup and wardrobe. The other 10% is what I do here in my office, bouncing off the walls".

"I think every experience you have working with people you admire and respect really enriches you as an artist".

"I love acting, period. If I'm going to get hired as a psycho, by God I'll take the job".

"I've been acting for 16 years. I've done 55 movies and, in all seriousness, there's maybe five that are good and the rest are crap".

"The X-Files"

"Chris Carter is just a fantastic guy, I have enjoyed working for him, immensely. I loved this character. I don't think I can say enough about Chris. It's just a fantastic thing that he's created and I'm so thrilled that I've been a part of it. I'm very grateful"

"I enjoyed the crew. The best part about 'The X-Files' has been the crew. This crew is an exceptional family and to go to work with a bunch of people that you really like is great. They're all the best of the best and they really try to do the best job they can. I'll miss that"

"I like the fact that I'm a good guy. I really do. I've played a lot of villains in my career. It's very exciting for me to be on the side of right"

"I did that LMG (Liquid Metal Guy) walk from the movie for Gillian the other day, and she couldn't stop laughing. So then I did the LMG run, and that put her completely away"

"I think she's just a great gal--a total professional, and my respect for her as an actress is very, very high"

"I think we have a fantastic relationship, chemistry-wise. But that's just me. I'm in scenes with her every day, and I can really tell you that I enjoy working with her. She's just terrific"

"Annabeth has a GREAT laugh! It was always fun to get her laughing on the set. I would absolutely work with her again"

"Mitch kills me. He's hilarious. He's been very supportive. If I'm in trouble on the set or if I feel like I'm looking for something and can't find it, he's definitely a guy I can go to and to talk it out with. And it's great to feel that way. I feel a great chemistry with him, as well"

"They wrote a great character and it's been fun playing a guy that loves America, loves his job, believes in doing the right thing. Doggett has a lot of codes that he lives by and I think it's a throwback character. I believe in a lot of things Doggett believes in"

"I've been doing this 17 years but I can tell you I have more websites now than I have ever had devoted to me or my past career or my character. When I got this show, I think I had two fans out there that had created websites on my behalf."

"The first day was really exciting for me. I was actually more nervous for that than I have been in a lot of other situations I've been in. I was nervous because partly I was just really so excited and I couldn't calm down. I think I was a little goofy that day!"

"The role is something I don't think I could have written better for myself. When I put on my John Doggett suit and go to work, it feels so right. I don't think I've been this happy in a long time. I wake up every morning very excited about going to work. It's very rewarding".

"Terminator 2"

"I looked to animal and insect imagery to develop the lack of substance and wasted motion that my Terminator has. I tried to tap into the killer instinct inherent in animals, where they are locked onto a target and will walk through anything that gets between them and their intended target"

"I'm basically death...they're running from death"

"Before the last audition I said to Jim Cameron, 'You know, I can do this.' He said, 'I know you can. Don't blow it'"
Source: Entertainment Weekly, August 30, 1991

"There was a certain amount of frustration because I thought - and I don't know if this was really true or not - but I thought all everyone wanted me to do was bad guys and villains. That's not me. I'm a normal guy just like everybody else. I'm an actor and I can do other things, too. The T-1000 was a character. It's so far from the real Robert Patrick"
