Quentin Tarantino about casting Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds.
Most Tarantino-isms aren’t printable in a family blog, but there is one phrase that Quentin Tarantino apparently says on his sets, as Stacey Sher, his longtime producer, revealed on the red carpet.
It’s such a Pollyanna-ish moment that it’s hard to believe it really happens anywhere near Mr. Tarantino, but Kerry Washington, a star of “Django Unchained,” seconded it. After a shot is finished, she explained, “He always says: ‘That was great, but we’re going to do it again. Why?’
Then everybody chants, “‘Because we love making movies!’”"

In the end credits, the Coffee Shop Manager is credited as just Coffee Shop. Quentin Tarantino said this was because when Tim Roth puts the gun to his head and says “Are you gonna be a hero?”, the manager only says “I’m just a Coffee Shop-” before Tim Roth cuts him off and starts yelling again.
