23 All-Time Favorite Jason Segel Quotes

1. “I did a show called ‘Freaks and Geeks’ when I was very young. And I had the naivete and arrogance of youth. You know, I really assumed that when the show got canceled, like, oh, it doesn’t matter, you just keep rolling, you know. I’m about to be the biggest star of the world. And then I was met with five years of unemployment.” – Jason Segel

2. “I went on a Hot Pocket diet where I ate two Hot Pockets every four hours. I only had the pepperoni pizza flavor. I didn’t go anywhere near the cheeseburger macaroni.” – Jason Segel

3. “If you can find the line between sympathetic and creepy, you have reached a very funny area.” – Jason Segel

4. “Part of growing up is not waiting in line at a hipster breakfast restaurant. The eggs taste the same across the street. I promise.” – Jason Segel

7. “If it’s achievement that you place your value in, you’re never going to achieve enough. If it’s power, you always need to wield power over others. If it’s money, you’ll never be rich enough. But if you do something and are a part of what is happening, then you’re always in it and it’s always enough.” – Jason Segel

8. “One thing that I think never goes out of style is just purity. Niceness and purity. And the Muppets have never lost that. Kermit especially is just wide-eyed wonder, unblinking. And he cant blink. Which I think probably helps.” – Jason Segel

9. “Funny enough, there have been puppets in everything I’ve written because I have a huge love of puppets. There’s a big puppet musical at the end of ‘Sarah Marshall.’ I wrote ‘The Muppets.” – Jason Segel

12. “One of the pitfalls of a romantic comedy is that you know how it’s going to end.” – Jason Segel

13. “There were some super-lean years, yeah. I’m six feet four. And I entered into this period all of a sudden when I was too big to play a kid and I was too young to play an adult. Like, I couldn’t play the lawyer, but I couldn’t play the high school kid anymore.” – Jason Segel

14. “Fozzie Bear has so many bear puns in this script – like, ‘Trac is grizzly!’ ‘This is unbearable!’ It’s the greatest.” – Jason Segel
