Quotes

#Quote
1When people meet me, it's not like they're meeting a celebrity like Jerry Springer or Oprah Winfrey or even Dr. Phil. ... It's like they're meeting a cop they've already met.
2[Of his own talk show]: That's part of my personality, too. They're letting me be who I am. I served 6½ years on active duty, so you probably see that side of me coming out.
3[When he wanted to do a talk show that is like this right-in-your-face personality]: If you're going to give me a show, you can't have me act any other way than who I am, because I'm not trained to do anything in the entertainment field. Me helping people, getting tough with the bad guys, going after the bad guy, that's what I've done my whole life, so it's a natural fit.
4[on a job that somehow ran in his family]: My father was a policeman for 30 years, and that's when I thought, my career was going to be, and I did it for 12 years. I never [in a million years] thought I was going to be on TV. As a policeman, you're driving the squad car around ... You don't think I'm going to end up on TV and get my own show, it just doesn't happen, it happened for me, but it's like winning the lottery, so, it's great, I love doing my own show. It's just a dream, it really is.
5[on why he wanted to shave his head bald]: Actually, it was after Richard Dominick's executive producer, who told me to shave my head for the show, The Jerry Springer Show (1991), and I shaved it. It really made me stand out on the Springer Show, and I think that's when people really start noticing me and the Springer Show was wild and popular, and a lot of people tuned in - 'I'm a big, tall, bald guy,' so, it lows me pretty easily.
6[About his own talk show]: Basically, I was a Chicago policeman for 12 years, and mostly, people recognized me from being out of The Jerry Springer Show (1991), for 14 seasons. What we're doing with this show is basically taking the 911 calls and bring it on stage, and me dealing with that problem, just like I did, when I was a policeman.
7[on the style of his own talk show]: Basically, it's easy for me, they're not trying to make me into a doctor or some kind of counselor. They're telling me, 'Go out there and host the show, just like you did when you were a policeman.' React and deal with it the same way - that I can do, because, even though I'm not a policeman, you still have that policeman, inside you. So, I don't coddle anybody on my show. If you're a bad guy, I'm going to get up in your face, and make you accountable for your actions, and I'm just being myself. So that makes it real easy for me.
8Sometimes as a police officer, when we're arresting people, they're gonna fight back. Most of the guests on the Springer show are not gonna fight us.
9[on his professional relationship with talk show host, Jerry Springer]: When I first started workin' for Jerry, we were doin' a show about guys telling their girlfriends that they were having an affair and they'd bring their lover out and it would be another guy. There were so many fights that day that Jerry asked me to sit up on-stage. So people were watching the episode on television and they called my parents up and said 'Steve is on TV and he's gay!'
