"I love Vancouver. I can be with my family, I can reconnect with the guys. It will always be my home."

"Nobody criticizes the 'Mighty Ducks' trilogy and gets away with it. Nobody!"

"The idea of parallel universes doesn't strike me as being too far out there... ...What defies my imagination is that there would be nothing out there that would defy my imagination... ...It's like the Carl Sagan thing, the candle in the dark - it only serves to illuminate how much we still don't know. -- on the idea of parallel universes."

"That's the beauty of our show. If we don't have a new crazy thing, something's gone horribly wrong. There's the individual creepy, gooey stuff, but what we've done pretty well is make each one of the creepy gooey things adds up to a much bigger story."
