1[Speaking on "The View" on May 28, 2009, about his activism for same-sex marriage] I've been going [to marriage-equality rallies] because I had the experience of...having this private thing [marriage] suddenly dragged out into the public and having people I don't know take a vote--I mean, can you imagine? If you're married, the people in your state getting together and saying, "well, you know what, you're not." It's a very odd thing. And I understand all the religious and emotional issues that are involved, but I don't...it was a very angry-making feeling, both in November when it was taken away from me and this past Tuesday, sitting in front of my television wondering, "gee, I hope the Supreme Court thinks it's okay for us to be married." Excuse me--it's none of your business.
2My life is an open book, but don't expect me to read it to you.
3I can vividly recall telling a joke in, like, second grade and realizing it was funnier if I didn't laugh. I've been deadpan ever since.
