Laura Wasser: You know, I've got kids with cancer and we have rape victims. Why do I want to give money to an organization that's just promoting divorce?

Brian Wilson: I don't know. I can't answer that question.

Wasser: Well, that’s really sad.

Wilson: Yeah. You have to unlearn things that you didn't want to learn.

Wasser: It's prohibitively expensive. The state gets involved anyway.


Wilson: I don't hang out with one song as much as I used to. I don't think very many people are singing at all.

Wasser: In California, they are not. I mean, sometimes I will talk to their publicist.

Wilson: It's been tough for me, you know?

Wasser: Because they're angry and they have one moment to kind of get their pound of flesh.

Wilson: About thirty-five years. Starting to get used to it.


Wasser: You know that I am not married.

Wilson: Yeah, I know. Everybody knows it.

Wasser: What are your expectations?

Wilson: Adult contemporary. Dying. The process is the same.

Wasser: I just want to exact as much punishment as I possibly can.
