3.7 Quotations (The Osbournes) part1

fried his brains are from taking drugs all those years and everyone will
say, 'I don't want to be like that.'" [Dan Quayle]

I'm a happily married man with three kids that I absolutely adore, and
that what I do is entertain people. I am not f--king Dracula" 1989]

"If I had to start it all over again, the only thing I would change is
I'd learn to read a contract better." [1992]

outrageous. I've never been the every day you. I've always
gone over the top with everything" [Ozzy 1985]

players that ever walked the earth. He was when he was here." [Ozzy on

"It's good fun and it's had great rewards. It's been such an eye opener
for me. Everything that I have ever wanted to have has come from rock
and roll. I've had happiness, I've had sadness. I've had everything.
I've experienced life, death, birth, marriage, divorce, and it's been
a whole bunch of fun. I wouldn't have it any different. I'd do it all
again tomorrow." [1986]
