"It's a second family. We've had marriages and divorces. We've had babies born, and we've lost cast and crew members." — Chris O'Donnell on the closeness of his co-stars and crew

"It satisfies me on a lot of different levels because we have very dramatic episodes, we do crazy action, we have some comedy. I come to this place every day for therapy to get things out of my system. I love to do it. It also gives me the opportunity to be in Los Angeles with my family." — Chris O'Donnell on why playing "G" Callen is one of the best gigs ever

"We've each had our ups and downs, and we knew what an opportunity this was. We came at it with the same attitude: Let's work as hard as we can, give ourselves every opportunity to be successful, and have no regrets if it isn't." — Chris O'Donnell on sharing the set with co-star LL COOL J

"I look back and think, 'I should've prepared more. I should've worked harder.' I didn't know any better. As I got older and really worked hard, I go, 'Man, I would've loved to have that chance again.' But that's all part of maturing." — Chris O'Donnell on the idea that with age and experience comes wisdom
