Alan Hale Jr.'s quotes

  • Of course, I never met a man who didn't like dad.
  • [Who said of his long career]: I was making a movie in India and they called me "Skipper Sahib".
  • I don't so much enter it, I put it on.
  • [Who said in 1988 about his best remembered role]: I must say, "The Skipper" has become my alter ego. I'm one and the same now.
  • I've got to say, my Goodness sakes.
  • [When asked about his success of selling vacuum cleaners]: It's like feeling out an audience. You gotta make 'em feel it's their machine from the moment you walk in.
  • Reality is determined not by what scientists or anyone else says or believes, but by what the evidence reveals to us.
  • [In 1985]: I'm just delighted to say people all over the world, whether I have my cap or not, 'Hello, Skipper, Hello Skipper,' it's like standing in-front of the fireplace, it's a lot of warmth.
  • Our reception has been overwhelming. The Iranian people have been extremely warm.
  • [Addressing the creator of Gilligan's Island (1964)]: Thank you, Sherwood Schwartz, for our great fun in doing the show, and for giving me the best friend I ever had, the Skipper.
  • I love the irony - I've spent over 400 hours of my life looking for comets, and haven't found anything, and now, suddenly, when I'm not looking for one, I get one dumped in my lap.
  • [In 1979]: I've never enjoyed a picture I didn't enjoy doing. I've worked on big budget and small budget films, and I've liked them all.
  • [In 1952]: It's risky and difficulty to try and substitute for a legend, because any star who has passed on is glowingly remembered. If the studios want me for the same type of roles my father did, I'll give it a whirl.
  • [In 1978]: Everywhere, we were asked the same question - 'When are you going to get off the island?' It's nice to pick up right where we left off. It's as though we worked last week and not 14 years ago.
  • My father's real name was Rufus Edward MacKahan. He changed his name to Alan Hale on the advice of a numerologist.
