On the Oprah couch incident:
"Perception and reality are two different things. I don't know if you saw the whole Oprah show. What happened, happened. Yeah, the point can be made that I wanted the audience to be happy just like I wanted to make my sisters and my mother happy when I did those skits as a kid. But I'll take responsibility for my actions."
On the fallout after the Oprah show:
"There was a confluence of events. My deal with Paramount was up and it wasn't extended. At first it was,'Huh? I don't get it.' But people have misconceptions about that whole thing, too. Sumner Redstone and I are friends. It's a business."
