A lot happens in 20 years.

Pat Morita

Hip Nip just sounds groovy. A drummer laid it on me.

Pat Morita

I began in an era where four-letter words were not allowed.

Pat Morita

I didn’t have a childhood.

Pat Morita

I don’t know of any other creature on earth other than man that will sit in a corner and cry because of some painful experience in the past.

I never was able to do karate. That’s calling me a good actor. I act like I can do anything.

I still have a young attitude.

Pat Morita

I went from being an ailing child to a public enemy.

Pat Morita

I’m awkward at these things. Just being nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for Karate Kid was a real surprise and I was a little uncomfortable.

Pat Morita

I’m in semi-retirement, but what am I going to retire to? I don’t ride horses, I don’t golf anymore. I shoot a game of pool every now and then.

Pat Morita

I’ve been working on my autobiography, just pecking away in longhand. The more you write, the more you remember. The more you remember, the more detail you recall. It’s not all pleasant!

Pat Morita

It’s been a career filled with very low valleys and some wonderful, high peaks.

Pat Morita

Only in America could you get away with the kind of comedy I did.

Pat Morita

Thanks to the Japanese and Geronimo, John Wayne became a millionaire.

Pat Morita

The idea of a Japanese comedian was not only a rarity, it was non-existent.

Pat Morita

You may have heard that back in the States there are some people who are smoking grass. I don’t know how you feel, but it’s sure easier than cutting the stuff.
