Ray Romano on the title of his sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond": "I hated myself since I was born, but especially after the show got its title. That just increased my self-hate."---Romano quoted in Rolling Stone, October 17, 1996.
Asked by James Brady of Parade Magazine if he's happy now that "Everybody Loves Raymond" is a hit, Romano replied: "I'm never happy. I have to need something. I need to think the worst, not to become complacent. Are they getting tired of me? I need to worry. Other people have call-waiting, I have worry-waiting."---Romano quoted October 31, 1998.
"It takes going onstage hundreds of times. There's no shortcut. You just have to learn to do it. It takes time to learn how to perform, to know your style, your voice, how to pause, how to comment. If someone heckles you, if they don't laugh. There's a thousand things. It takes a lot of unnatural work to become a natural."---Romano on his work ethic, quoted in Daily News, September 8, 1999.
"When we talk, it all sounds real. That appeals to the audience, makes them feel like they're watching real people, dysfunctional but real people."---Romano on the success of "Everybody Loves Raymond" as quoted in People, February 21, 2000.
"Before the show I thought my cab driver hated me. Now I think my limo driver hates me. That's all. It's just a different level."---Ray Romano on how fame did nothing to cure his neurosis, quoted to People, May 17, 2005.
