Jack LaLanne: If something saved your life, would you be enthusiastic about it?

Noah Lennox: Like kids screaming, or something like that?

LaLanne: That’s where I get my protein.

Lennox: Sure. There’s a shitload of sunlight.

LaLanne: That’s my whole life. This moment controls the next moment.

Lennox: It really dictates a mood. Every day it’s just kind of, “Oh, wow, that’s crazy.”

LaLanne: I’m your brand new friend. Let’s do some living.


Lennox: There’s actually a sign on one of the doors at the studio that I’ve been so psyched on.

LaLanne: “If it tastes good, spit it out.”  

Lennox: Yeah.

LaLanne: Dogs are wonderful.

Lennox: Oh yeah? Sweet.

LaLanne: Who puts the food in your mouth?

Lennox: It depends. Have you ever been to California before? It’s pretty mellow.


LaLanne: People need help today.

Lennox: I don’t know. I almost feel like it’s not up to us.

LaLanne: Are you kidding? When I was a young kid at fifteen I dropped out of school for 6 months, I was a troublemaker, I tried to commit suicide, couldn’t stand these blinding headaches every day, I was 30 pounds under weight—I was a skinny terrible kid.

Lennox: [laughs] I just love to be around that sort of energy.
