“Tarantino is the coolest damn guy; he’s just so much fun to work with. He might be the best director I’ve ever worked with. He just seems to know how to do it and he knows how to make you feel good about it. He’s having so much fun you start having fun. You can’t help it.” (David Carradine)


“Kung fu: You’ve got to spend your whole life at it before you’re kung fu.” (David Carradine)


“It’s weird, because everywhere I go, people yell, ‘Grasshopper!’ or ‘Bill!’ but down there in Mexico or Colombia or anywhere in South America or most of Europe, people will yell, ‘Serpent’s Egg!’ And I’ll go, ‘Wow, man, these people are really hip.'” (David Carradine)


“‘Kung Fu’ was never cancelled; I just left. I decided I had enough of it, and I thought I should do a movie right away, because I think when you leave a television series, it’s important that you establish the fact that you’re a movie actor really quickly, or you might never get that chance.” (David Carradine)
