“I’m a [bleep] heel in a way. Maybe in many ways. I could never stand authority of any kind. And I despise the kind of conglomerate bureaucracy you deal with in television. They hope you put yourself in a corner of luxury, so you can’t ask for a raise.”Jackie Gleason

"If you don't know why you're drinking, you're in trouble. I've always drunk for one reason only: to get smashed. As I told Arthur Godfrey once, drinking can remove warts, wrinkles, pimples and other blemishes. Not on yourself - on other people." -- Jackie Gleason (Bizarre Los Angeles)

"Organized religion treats people exactly like television executives treat actors: They use threats to your security and offer appeals to your vanity." -- Jackie Gleason (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“I’ve been searching for God all my life but just never found him. Organized religion treats people exactly like television executives treat actors: They use threats to your security and offer appeals to your vanity. Oh, I think there’s a divine being, but we haven’t the slightest idea who he is, what he does or what his intentions may be.”Jackie Gleason
