As The O.C. started up again, I started to feel myself potentially getting pulled away.

Josh Schwartz

Certainly the experiences of Seth and his relationship to his parents and his point of view of the world are very similar to my own and very much based on my experiences at the University of Southern California.

Josh Schwartz

Certainly there’s got to be a little bit of reality show fatigue happening.

Josh Schwartz

I am the kind of person that takes everything as is and then look at it from the outside looking in.

Josh Schwartz

I think our show is very different from Orange County.

Josh Schwartz

I think you’re only as good as the work that you do.

Josh Schwartz

I want every character be an outsider in some way.

Josh Schwartz

I’d started working when I was 21 and had been very determined about my career, very focused, even as a little kid, so it was something I had been working at for a long time.

Josh Schwartz

If it happened to me, it can happen to anyone.

Josh Schwartz

It is my goal to learn as much about the people I’m surrounded by. I am slowly widening who I am close with, and at the same time, growing further away from others.

Josh Schwartz

It’s my experience that the fluidity of sexuality with younger people is more accepted.

Josh Schwartz

It’s really hard in this day and age, with radio and MTV being so consolidated, to get new music out there. I think we’ve become a really legitimate, viable avenue for getting new music out there.

Josh Schwartz

Last year, at the beginning of the year, we couldn’t get arrested, so I’ll take this. Feast versus famine.

Josh Schwartz

Like they said about The West Wing, you can’t do a show about Washington until you can.

Josh Schwartz

Ten-year plan? No, three-year plan! I’m in a hurry.

Josh Schwartz

The best years are behind me.

Josh Schwartz

The characters are that vague TV high school age, but they’ll be in high school as long as we need them to be.

Josh Schwartz

The girls in high school who watched 90210? I was watching Seinfeld.

Josh Schwartz

The press always ends up being much nicer than I expect. A lot of times they say something snarky about you, but then you meet them in person and they couldn’t be nicer.

Josh Schwartz

The support that we have from the network in terms of watching us at an unusual time in the year and playing our episodes three times in a given week until we built an audience… is exceptional.

Josh Schwartz

The trap is that you then just start doing stuff about Hollywood, which I don’t really want to do.

Josh Schwartz

There is always drama and there will always be drama, but its the way its presented in my head that makes it so interesting. Everyone gets their time in the middle of the drama.

Josh Schwartz

There’s got to be a little bit of reality show fatigue happening.

Josh Schwartz

We don’t hold anything back. We go for broke, and if we have a good idea for a story line, we just use it because you never know and because the dynamics of the show are going to change.

Josh Schwartz

We just happened to come along at time where there hadn’t been a new young adult drama that also could appeal to adults as well in quite some time. We sort of found a little bit of a niche.

Josh Schwartz

Year Two is a critical year for any television show.

Josh Schwartz

You gotta strike while the iron’s hot.

Josh Schwartz

You have to act like a responsible professional in the industry regardless of your age.
