Famous MacFarlane Quotes
- “There were two things that became apparent, pretty quickly into the process. One was that the muscles didn’t take as much reconditioning as I thought they would. It was more like voice acting than I thought it would be. You’re using your whole body, and some things are different, but when you are doing a character, even in the booth, nobody is watching, but my face will do different things when I do different characters.” – Seth MacFarlane
- “I always thought it would be funny to have the Parents Television Council write an episode of ‘Family Guy’ and give them full creative control. Then see how good the episode is. That’s something we’ve actually discussed in the writers’ room. We haven’t proposed it yet, but if somebody from the PTC reads this, it might be worth discussing.” – Seth MacFarlane
- “I do not believe in God. I’m an atheist. I consider myself a critical thinker, and it fascinates me that in the 21st century, most people still believe in, as George Carlin puts it, ‘the invisible man living in the sky’” – Seth MacFarlane
