# Quote
1 [on his current 2013 talk show] You ever seen little black girls doing double Dutch? There’s always one little girl standing, waiting to get in. And you’ve got to get your rhythm. That’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve been doing this: waiting to get back in… You need to not let that rope hit your feet. I’m making sure I’m not fat and out of shape – so I can endure.
2 If I was a guy who had never done a talk show before, you could say, “What’s this [2013] show going to be?”. But this is going to look like Arsenio took a long hiatus – a long, long hiatus – but I came back, and redid the set… I’m not going to take people from Jay [Leno], from [Jimmy] Kimmel, from Conan [O’Brien]. My audience is going to come from iPads, from radios. It’s going to be coming from people who don’t have a talk-show host… I’m doing this for a second time, and people are saying “Is he out of his mind?”.
3 My name is Arsenio. That’s a very unique name for a black man. In Greek, it means Leroy.
4 (on whether he has ever been married) No. I’ve never understood what the upside of marriage would be for me personally. I love being in a relationship, but marriage isn’t for me.
