and the character is interesting."
"Viper 1, runway three-two, Check wheels down, clear to land"
"Mom liked the fly boys, so I thought I was destined to be one."
"The plan was to go fly fighters like my dads. So I went into the military, did six years of air traffic control, which was the closest thing to being a pilot."
"Sales just wasn't cutting it." [Scott on past jobs]

except for a jock strap." [Scott on a scene in "Men In Trees"]
"If I'm out of town, I book a room at the tallest hotel in that city,
then run the stairwell a couple of times."
"I’m kind of that guy who’s always working to the wee hours.
I’ve always been one to give 110 percent."
"I enjoy working so much so it’s not such a taxing thing for me.
It’s fun doing what I do, and I enjoy doing it."
"I love wine. I’m a big Pinot Noir fan, and the Russian River
and Argentenian wines."
"I don’t like cooking for myself, but if it’s for a whole bunch of people,
then I enjoy doing it."
"I do a grilled sole. I’ll broil it and add a fresh mango sauce or avocado.
I make a mean chicken enchilada. It’s the way you prepare it.
I boil the chicken and it keeps it moist."
"I’m fully dressed. I actually had to bring out the acting talents on this one other than just shed the clothes. Mom’s real proud!" [Scott on "Uncorked"]
"Scott is a lot of fun to work with. That man never has a bad day.
He just got a great spirit." [Julie Benz on Scott Elrod]
"Scott Elrod is very easy to work with. You know, he's very eager and such a good spirit. He's one of the nicest, kindest spirits and on set he loves what he does. He loves being an actor." [Julie Benz on Scott Elrod]
"The biggest thing I enjoyed working with Rick Schroder [director of Hellhounds], he was like the Quarterback of the set, he kept everything cool and it was such a great environment."
"I did 6 years as an Air Traffic Controller in the military. It just wasn't the life style for me. I’m so grateful that we have our Armed Forces. God Bless those men and women, they've really done wonderful and amazing things for us."
"And the icing of the cake is being able to knock Mr. Men in Trees-actor, Scott Elrod, on his rear. I didn't do all my own stunts on Dukes for nothing."

"My family just instilled in me so many values, everything from being on time, being professional, being prepared and you can apply them to everything in life, whether it’s acting or running a company."
"Having been in the military...it’s very strict, there was respect and a level of professionalism, which allowed me to carry over into my professional life,
as well as my personal life."
"Working with Rick Schroder on Hellhounds, that was such a wonderful experience, I mean the guy has been around the camera on set, ever since he was a little tyke. The knowledge that’s going on in his head. Man that guy, cool as he could be, he really knows how to talk to actors and get out of them what he wants in order to get it."
"Al Pacino, I think is a wonderful actor, and I hope to meet him and work with him someday."
"Dad instilled values and my mom she has given me so much. I know them really well."
"I took my Dad up to Vancouver on set and I think at that point it really hit him. It’s a little different cause he grew up in the military as well, he was in the military, it’s just completely different from military life. You know, I think at that point it really sunk in, he’s like “Alright my boy’s doing it”.
"What you see on TV [Men in Trees] is really completely different from what’s going on behind the scenes. People just don’t realize, it took 8 days to shoot an episode which is 42 minutes, there’s so much waiting and these are 16 hour days."
"Every time that something comes on, whether it be a re-run or whatever, I always get a phone call from Mom and she’s just happy to be as it was airing the first time. A lot of support from them, I’m definitely who I am cause of my parents."
"In five years..I hope being able to make the choices I want to make. I want to be able to affect people. You know, that’s part of the reason why I got into acting, encourage people to follow their dreams. I mean, I was completely set in something that was 180 degrees backwards from what I’m doing now."
"This is a land of opportunities and I want to encourage people and the more people I affect doing so, the better I think that I accomplished for what I set out for."
"I'm definitely looking into producing on a couple of projects with some wonderful people. Eventually I would like to get into directing. If I could do what George Clooney is doing, I would be very happy."
"I have been blessed, paired up with some wonderful actresses, actors and some great projects. I do not to take for granted what I have done."
"You always have to feel that you're not there yet, because there is so much more to obtain. If you get complacent that’s when you and that’s when things, don’t start happening, I think."
"I was at a point in my life where I was essentially starting over. I figured if not now,
it will never be the right time to pursue the dream."
"What I like the most about acting is the sense of freedom I have to just be me, something I was never really able to do until I started acting."
"I'm a fixer! Love to fix stuff, including myself ;)"
"I missed the dual-citizenship status (German and US) by two years."

"A gentleman for me is being an example for other men, and providing an environment for women to just be, whatever that may be, all while doing it flawlessly and without thought or judgement."
"Being in front of the camera is such an amazing experience, I couldn't imagine it not being a long term occupation."
"I really enjoy directing, and then there is the business side of me also,
so within that falls producing."
"I am very detail oriented, what bothers me even"
