You know what’s funny to me? Attitude.Don Rickles
I like to think I’m like the guy who goes to the office Christmas party Friday night, insults some people, but still has his job Monday morning.Don Rickles
The old days were the old days. And they were great days. But now is now.Don Rickles
I don’t drink much anymore, but when I traveled with Frank Sinatra, God rest his soul, I used to drink like I could do it. He made it a test. In Vegas, the Rat Pack, which I was a little part of, drank all night and slept most of the day. Then, about 5 o’clock, we’d meet in the hotel steam room, lock the door, and steam our brains out.Don Rickles
It takes many years to be a great comedian.Don Rickles
