Author: Anatoli Boukreev
2. "My favorite - my very favorite movie, which I suppose is a bit of a guilty pleasure in that it's like, you know, every scene, you know, pushes every button, is 'True Romance' directed by Tony Scott with Patricia Arquette and Christian Slater, and it's a fantastic, fantastic film, very violent, very romantic."
Author: Caterina Scorsone
3. "If you were a dear, good little wife, Janet,' had said Lymond, ‘you'd fall into a mortal decline that day, or at least hide his boots.' ‘Francis Crawford, are ye daft!

4. "When I had finished the book I knew that no matter what Scott did, nor how he behaved, I must know it was like a sickness and be of any help I could to him and try to be a good friend. He had many good, good friends, more than anyone I knew. But I enlisted as one more, whether I could be of any use to him or not. If he could write a book as fine as The Great Gatsby I was sure that he could write an even better one. I did not know Zelda yet, and so I did not know the terrible odds that were against him. But we were to find them out soon enough."
Author: Ernest Hemingway

9. "Scott Hall is a great wrestler, a better friend, but more than anything a very caring human being. Scott never passed a homeless person or someone in need without opening his wallet. This is a guy that has the first two nickels he ever made."

10. "...Baltimore. It's imperfect. Boy, is it imperfect. And there are parts of its past that make you wince. It's not all marble steps and waitresses calling you 'hon,' you know. Racial strife in the sixties, the riots during the Civil War. F. Scott Fitzgerald said it was civilized and gay, rotted and polite. The terms are slightly anachronistic now, but I think he was essentially right."
Author: Laura Lippman
11. "Deciding to wait, Scott sat down with a pint away from the bar at a corner table and lit a cigarette. The clientele in there on Sunday afternoon were the same as most other afternoons. From middle-aged to old men, drinking and cursing at the world like it was the last bus which had just left the stop without them."
Author: R.D. Ronald
12. "I've enjoyed the comicbook writings of Warren Ellis since a friend introduced me to Transmetropolitan via the "holiday special" in collected volume three. Ah yes, Scott and Edé's housewarming, I had passed out in a chair, our friend Aeric on the couch, and I woke up to the sound of Edé's girlfriend coming downstairs and asking Aeric, "what'cha got there?" and Aeric replied, "I'm not sure, but it's psychotic. Ru, are you up yet? You have to see this when I'm done." Everyone else should be so lucky to have such an introduction to Ellis."
