| And then the conditions of safety - or lack of safety - for teachers in public schools, and the disparity between public schools and private schools is shameful.
| It's very clear you have to engage the public and say: You have to vote no on 74, no on 75, no on 76, no on 77. Those are the issues that Arnold pushing. And those are reactionary, Republican initiatives.
| I don't want to run for governor, but I don't think anyone should put public service out of the question because that's not what a good citizen does.
| I was friends with President Ronald Reagan and he once said to me, 'I don't know how anybody can serve in public office without being an actor.'
| Movies are fun, but they're not a cure for cancer.
| Although Ronald Reagan was somebody I disagreed with on most ideological things, he was a friend of mine, and he was a very, very likable man. Ronald Reagan, for instance, was maybe more able to get the very rich to do the right thing sometimes.
| When I saw Arnold say that he didn't need a union, because people in his position don't need it, I thought, this is a very naive way to present yourself. It's also kinda dumb about making movies. It doesn't realize how the union movement even helps the star.
| Organized labor, if they're doing a responsible job, is going to organize the pooling of small amounts of money to protect the interests of the people who are not rich.
| My notion of a wife at 40 is that a man should be able to change her, like a bank note, for two 20s.
| When you mutilate movies for mass media, you tamper with the hearts and minds of America.
| For me, the highest level of sexual excitement is in a monogamous relationship.
| There's no point in making a movie just to be making a movie.
| Marriage requires a special talent, like acting. Monogamy requires genius.
| Arnold has had his spokesman call me a crackpot. That was a mistake.
| That's all gone, now, the old, Hollywood.
| How can anybody hate nurses? Nobody hates nurses. The only time you hate a nurse is when they're giving you an enema.
| And the success of the union movement, historically, has always been to benefit all working men and women - not just people who belong to the union.
| To denigrate the union movement in this way is to denigrate the right and the ability of people who are not rich to organize and to accomplish things together.
| When I produce a movie - and I've produced a number of movies, unlike Arnold - yes, I'm frustrated when the union says you can't do this, you can't work past that hour, you've got to break for lunch. But ultimately, they're right. What they do is for everyone's benefit.
| But the Republican right-wing agenda, these people - Arnold and his patrons - felt it could be accomplished by circumventing the Legislature and spending money and organizing and giving sound bites.
