1[1985] If there's a role for a spear carrier, and it's in a good film, I'll do it. I'd rather have two lines in a good movie than the lead in a piece of doody.
2If you're an underdog, mentally disabled, physically disabled, if you don't fit in, if you're not as pretty as the others, you can still be a hero.
3[on Charles Bubba Smith's death] Bubba was my friend. His generosity was much larger than his physical stature. Only his gift for caring about his friends and family could compare with his achievements on the football field, film and television. He also laughed like no other.
4I just want to do good stories. That's the trap. When people say, "Oh, I don't want to do this again" -- well, if they're good at it, why not do it? I don't care about switching from comedy to drama -- I just like to be able to jump from work to work. I just like to be doing good work -- that's all I want to do. I just want to work.
5[addressing the rumours of a Police Academy/Mahoney spin-off film] Definitely. It's coming. People will look down at the idea, but they're in the same business of making money too. The Police Academy (1984) films gave me so much opportunity, and I've got nothing but a good attitude towards them. I sure hope they do it. If the script's right - I'm definitely in. You never know, I may direct.
1Godson of Michael Bell.

14The writers of The Simpsons (1989) pay tribute to Guttenberg in the episode "Homer the Great", (Sixth Season; episode 2F09) where he appears as a cartoon and mentioned in the song sung by the Stonecutters ("Who holds back the electric car? Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star? We do! We do!").
