Favorite Quotes From Scott Baio

“I have a job to do, I have a wife and child to take care of. So I don’t pay attention to things that I don’t know anything about. I’ve got my own situation to deal with.” – Scott Baio

“From a very young age, my father put a lot of fear in me and it worked. I think it’s important for children to have fear. I never was curious about drugs or alcohol. I was born in 1960 and back then the older kids were smoking pot. I wasn’t interested in that ever and I always had this thing in me, for some reason, that if God was kind enough to give me a healthy body and mind, I was not going to screw it up.” – Scott Baio

“I don’t have an iPod. I don’t get the whole iPod thing. Who has time to listen to that much music? If I had one, it would probably have Sinatra, Beatles, some ’70s music, some ’80s music, and that’s it.” – Scott Baio

“One thing I won’t be doing on a weekend is shopping. I just don’t like it, and I haven’t bought an article of clothing for a very long time. I usually just take a wardrobe from shows I’m on. It’s much easier.” – Scott Baio
