[Of Dick Van Dyke]: Working with Dick Van Dyke was one of the greatest experiences in my life. By far, the most talented, inspirational, gracious human beings I have ever had the pleasure of sharing a scene with. He was always so great to me and so great to my wife and children.
[on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Dick Van Dyke, who played Dr. Mark Sloan]: I loved Dick Van Dyke. Before I got that role in the show, I was a big Dick Van Dyke fan. You know 10 years after the fact, I'm a bigger Dick Van Dyke fan. Dick was like working with Santa Claus, everyday. He was the most, kind, generous, gregarious man that I ever had the fortune of working with, and you know, to me, that was like hitting the actor's lottery. You don't always get to work on the show where you love everybody and this was one of them, so, it was a true, true blessing and I'm thankful for everyday of it.
[Who once heard of Dick Van Dyke's reference to his co-star's real name]: Dick always calls me Charlie instead of Jesse on camera. And he'll hit his head and say: Why don't you just change your name in Jesse?
About working with Barry Van Dyke: "Barry is a great guy, nothing but honesty coming out of him...He and I die laughing about the stupidest things and we're like a couple of school girls...We're so physically opposite, it's fun playing off him, he's such a straight man."
About his short-term photographic memory :"When you're doing a show like this (Diagnosis Murder (1993) ), it's like cramming for an exam two minutes before the test. I can look at a page for a while and have it in my head and when we move onto the next scene I've completely forgotten what I just said."
Talking about a girl from school: "The girl didn't only happen to be cute, she was also the only girl at school that was shorter than me."
