Here are some humorous and touching quotes from skaters, coaches, and commentators:
(After the '92 Olympics) "I came, I saw, they kicked my ass."
(After '94 Olympics Short Program) "I guess the Olympics just aren't my thing." and "I need a hug."
"Nothing dumb ever starts out stupid."
"I'm a white boy from Canada. I probably have gotten jiggy with it, but didn't know it at the time."
"None of what we do on the ice matters; it's love and caring and I think Katia (Gordeeva) taught us all that once again. We're just so lucky to skate. I think when we look back, we'll all be laughing because...we're so lucky."
Dick Button has his own quote page.
"If I see the mistake or feel the mistake, and if it is Jayne's mistake I'll tell her.
And if it's mine I'll tell her that she's made a mistake too."
(On T&D's relationship) "It makes a mockery of 'When Harry Met Sally'"
"I'd love to be totally avant-garde but the audience base wouldn't support it."
"With her culinary skills that fall short of boiling an egg and laundry skills that render her as likely to fly
Concorde as operate a washing machine, any man would be happy to have Jayne as a wife."
"I win the battles, but Jayne wins the wars."
(On Tonya Harding) "Let's just say she's not playing with a full deck of cards."
Scott Hamilton has his own quote page.
(About the '94 Olympic ladies' result) "A double-double [combination]? Two flawed performances and she still takes gold? Call the cops because Nancy was robbed!"
(About the '94 Olympics result) "I knew when I was eight years old and started doing this..I'm not racing against a clock..it's someone else's opinion."
(On Gwendal Peizerat's hair) "If I ever grow mine like that, shoot me..."
"No garlic before ice dancing"
(About his infamous "Rhapsody in Moo"/"Giraffe on Crack" shirt) "We won't discuss the shirt again. The shirt won." and "You won't find another like it. It was made by a good mother in Russia."
"This is not ice dancing. Nobody knows who will be first."
(About the '98 Olympics) "I didn't lose the gold, I won the silver."
"What is perfection, really?"
"Pain is short lived, but pride lasts a lifetime."
"Sometimes you don't get what you want. You get what you need." Kind of a take-off
on the Rolling Stones' song, huh???
(Response to reporters asking if she knew what the judges wanted at '94 Olympics)
"I don't know and I don't care."
"Skating isn't going to change the world. We take it seriously but we don't expect anyone else to."
"My ambition is to cook something that other people would actually like to eat."
(About skating audiences) "They always expect to see Bolero at some point..."
(About Chris) "When you turn up late he always tells you exactly how many minutes late you are.
It drives me crazy!" "As soon as I agree on something he disagrees. That's normal!"
(On placing 3rd in the short program in Albertville) "I dreamed about it, but I always woke up too soon."
(On winning silver instead of gold in '92) "How much more of a Cinderella story do you want?" and "My silver WAS my gold."
(After a performance, commenting on how the lights had flickered) "Who was turning the lights out? Was Chris Bowman in the building? Chris, you shouldn't do that!"
Thank-you to the good people of FSW Fan Chat--I couldn't have compiled this list without them!!!
An extra thank-you to Kate Halle (aka Wilma/Jazzfish) for her help with the T&D quotes.
