10 QUOTES WITH «CREDITS»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word credits.
1
Clive Barker
I remember when I watched 'Hellraiser' with my mother. She cried when she saw my name in the opening credits, and I had to tell her that that was the happiest she was going to be for the next two hours.
2
Dave Brat
Fannie and Freddie made two-thirds of all subprime mortgages. That is not a free market institution. That entity, along with the Fed printing too much money back in '03 and '04, caused the housing collapse. So we need to take free markets seriously. That means we have to put an end to all these tax credits and tax deductions and loopholes.
3
Dana Brunetti
Don't sell credits; don't sell walk-on roles... If people want to back you, they'll back you. But if you have to entice people will walk-on roles and crazy credits, you're undermining yourself.
4
Cy Coleman
Since I was the solo artist as well as the writer for the songs, I figured I had enough credits on it already.
5
Jim Cummings
As a kid, I just loved cartoons. And as the credits went by, I'd study those names and then try to figure how I could get hired to do what Mel Blanc and Daws Butler did. Create all of these great voices for animated characters.
6
Asghar Farhadi
Often times, music is used to evoke an emotion and it's become a cliche, so I don't want to do that, and actually what I do, is that emotional intensity that has developed throughout the film, I allow it to get released by having that music at the end with the credits.
7
Dianne Feinstein
It is my belief that tax credits only go to people who are making money, and they generally keep it.
8

I'm insanely proud of every single one of my credits until the people who created the shows are dead.
9
Ari Fleischer
