With all the popular quotes and classic clips of Merv floating around online, we thought it would be fun to do a roundup here of just a few of his most popular quotes. Witty, wise, and no-nonsense, here are six of the biggest fan favorites:
“What have I learned from talking to all these famous people? That there’s a major story behind everyone.”
“Unless it’s an emergency, don’t bother me after 6pm and on weekends.”
“If you make the customer a promise, make sure you deliver it.”
“I refuse to be bored.”
“Luck comes in if you’re well equipped to deal with it.”
“It’s always been my philosophy; turn the page. If something falls through, turn the page. It’s over with. Get used to it, get on with it. Very simple. It’s always worked for me.”
