I often find myself worrying about celebrities.

We put suffocation warnings on all the – on every piece of plastic film manufactured in the United States or for sale with an item in the United States.

When my kids were toddlers, they had all these rotomolded plastic things.

I have a terrible, terrible fear of knives. I only buy food that I don't need to cut… I haven't cut my food in years! Like, I won't even touch a plastic knife or anything sharp. And if I'm in a kitchen and somebody picks up a knife, I leave. -Christian Serratos

What's it like to envision the ten-thousand-year environmental impact of tossing a plastic bottle into the trash bin, all in the single second it takes to actually toss it? Or the ten-thousand-year history of the fossil fuel being burned to drive to work or iron a shirt? It may be environmentally progressive, but it's not altogether pleasant. -Douglas Rushkoff

Brains are tricky and adaptable organs. For all the 'neuroplasticity' allowing our brains to reconfigure themselves to the biases of our computers, we are just as neuroplastic in our ability to eventually recover and adapt. -Douglas Rushkoff

I am violently untidy. My desk is overcrowded. I write my first drafts in longhand in a long notebook using a plastic throwaway fountain pen. Then I work on a word processor using a different desk and a different room. -Colm Toibin

I've made my best personal investments when I've been a user of the product. Like Apple. The epiphany for me came when I purchased my fifth iPod and I hadn't unwrapped my fourth. It was still in the plastic case. -Mary Meeker

I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification. -Lady Gaga

The family on my mom's side, their whole business is inventing and pitching stuff. My grandfather is in infomercials. He's a pitchman, so if you're ever watching TV late at night, you'll probably see him pitching knives. My great-grandfather also invented the plastic cheese grater. -Ashley Tisdale

My office doubles as a karaoke den for the neighborhood. There are strobe lights and Rock Band plastic guitars, a disco ball and a fog machine and some other things. I have a really long work day, and you might find me doing karaoke by myself late at night. -Jeff Kinney

If I had had plastic surgery, I would have asked for something better than the face you are seeing! I actually really hate plastic surgery when it's just for aesthetics and anti-ageing. I think ageing is beautiful and expressive and characterful. -Miranda Hart

You can't treat an illness with cosmetic surgery, and that's why it would be great if there were qualified therapists in plastic surgeons' offices, and that people would go to a therapeutic meeting before plastic surgery. I think that should be part of the FDA requirement. -Sharon Stone

I will refine somebody in a minor way, but I don't want to totally change them. I don't want them to look like plastic dolls. -Douglas Kirkland

I came from product design originally – I had been designing dolls for a toy company since I was 16 – so I'm used to working with plastic and different things. I had an innate interest in objects. -Jason Wu

I haven't had any plastic surgery – despite what people think, this is my nose. I have had Restylane and Botox, but I don't think of that as plastic surgery any more. -Tom Ford

It has not been hard to grow older, because I believe if you have something you believe in, that will keep you alive far more than plastic surgery or Botox. -Veruschka von Lehndorff

My biggest hobby is airsoft, which is similar to paintball. Essentially, it's military simulation, but the guns shoot plastic BBs. My friends and I go out in the woods or the desert and play all day long! -Nathan Kress

The most futuristic aspect of the House of the Future was that it was made almost entirely of plastic. -P. J. O'Rourke

Banning paper and plastic and making shoppers carry their groceries home in their mouths like dogs is just the thing to make a little tin humanist in the Obama West Wing think he's admiral of the Uzbek Navy. -P. J. O'Rourke

I think everyone is forgetting what plastic surgery is for – if you have a face-eating tumour, lose a breast or are involved in a car accident, then it's a good idea. -Sally Phillips

When I was 3, my parents strapped on a pair of Playskool plastic roller skates to my feet, and that's where the story begins. -J. R. Celski

I've found that I snack less and concentrate better when I chew on a plastic stirrer – the kind that you get to stir your to-go coffee. I picked up this habit from my husband, who loves to chew on things. His favorite chew-toy is a plastic pen top, and gnawed pen tops and little bits of plastic litter our apartment. -Gretchen Rubin

Of all the waste we generate, plastic bags are perhaps the greatest symbol of our throwaway society. They are used, then forgotten, and they leave a terrible legacy. -Zac Goldsmith

I have never collected an object or figure from Africa or Oceania because of anything curious about it or because of its utility or historic interest. Everything has been chosen entirely because of its aesthetic significance; its form, feeling, structure, and plastic values. -Frank Crowninshield

I personally have gone to photo shoots and see the pictures afterwards, and I don't look like me because I'm just so airbrushed and so, kind of, fake and almost plastic-looking, you know? -Jennette McCurdy

Early on I saw the plastic quality in colored people and had friends among them; and later was to work from colored models and friends, including Paul Robeson, whose splendid head I worked from in New York. I tried to draw Chinamen in their quarter, but the Chinese did not like being drawn and would immediately disappear when they spotted me. -Jacob Epstein

The plastic bottle we're throwing away every day still stays there. And if we show that to people, then we can also promote some behavioral change. -Carlo Ratti

When you have all these traces of trash moving around, you can ask yourself how can we make the system more efficient. Then we can make better decisions. And perhaps we will not throw away the plastic bottles that go every day to the dump. -Carlo Ratti

Nerve cells communicate with one another at specialized points called synapses. And these synapses are plastic – they can be modified by learning. -Eric Kandel

Without 'The Brady Bunch,' my guess is I would have become an engineer working on new plastics or something. -Mike Lookinland

We buy a bottle of water in the city, where clean water comes out in its taps. You know, back in 1965, if someone said to the average person, 'You know in thirty years you are going to buy water in plastic bottles and pay more for that water than for gasoline?' Everybody would look at you like you're completely out of your mind. -Paul Watson

The low point for neon came in 1982, when Holiday Inn did away with its signature 'Great Sign,' replacing the neon extravaganza with a forgettable green plastic box. -Virginia Postrel

We'd be really screwed if we had to start our life over again as children with our brains right now, because I think we lose the plasticity and flexibility. -Paul Bloom

Art is the ultimate luxury good, but one that can make you think, give a you a blast of beauty and enhance your life. Even if the work's made of plasticine. -Ben Elliot

I thought that plastic surgery was easy, but it is really serious and is not something you want to mess around with. -Heidi Montag

I admit that I've been beaten up so many times in films, but we do not fake it – we actually have to fight when we shoot to make it real and to save film and time. Even the props that are not real, like the bats are plastic, but they're still very hard, so it still hurts. -Min-sik Choi

Those weeks before diagnosis can be among the most torturous times. There is a reason you're called a patient once the plastic bracelet goes on. -David Rakoff

The immune system's goal is to protect the body against invaders either from without, such as microbes, or from within, such as cancers and different types of neoplastic transformation. -Anthony Fauci

Everyone should wake up and have a fresh-squeezed orange every day. By having a fresh glass of orange juice with American oranges, you are supporting the local economy, you have all the vitamin C you need in a day, and you support the environment because you don't use any plastic from bottles or bags. -Jose Andres

I had a job when I was 15 working at a supermarket, and I knocked over a stack of plastic coffee cups. In my anger, I threw one at a concrete wall, and it rebounded back into my head and cut my head open. Stupidest way to get a scar, but it's one that I have. -Antony Starr

I had a friend who was a plastic surgeon, so he would do little things. I never had, like, a full thing. So I would go in maybe once every two or three years, and he'd do a little here, a little there; tweak you, like you tweak your car. Then I became the plastic surgery poster girl. -Joan Rivers

With plastic surgery, the general anesthetic is like a black-velvety sleep, and that's what death is – without waking up to someone clapping and going, 'Joan, wake up, it's all over and you're looking pretty'. -Joan Rivers

My parents always swore that in my childhood they had to let me win at board games. If, by the lucky stroke of the plastic wheel, my father would accidentally beat me at Candy Land, I would fly into fits of bawling that I'm told would last for hours. If I couldn't triumph, I didn't want to play. -Koren Zailckas

I've never been interested in changing my face. I hear of those glycolic peels and the Botox and plastic surgeries, and I am just, like, 'Oh my God.' I just could never do that. -Justine Bateman

Anyone who thinks I'm a plastic-surgery freak is insane. -Jennifer Grey

When you look at women who have had plastic surgery, they have lost something – usually an expression, something unique to their face. -Bo Derek

I'm the breadwinner. I kill the spiders. Actually I don't kill them. I put them in a plastic bag and take them outside. I take out the trash cans. I change the light bulbs. I lug the 50 lbs. suitcases down the stairs. -Teri Hatcher

My parents strapped a pair of plastic skis on my boots when I was two years old and sent me down our driveway in Vail. Of course, they were holding on to me the whole time, but that was my first experience 'skiing.' -Mikaela Shiffrin

I have had no plastic surgery on my face. Can I leave it at that? -Jennifer Flavin

In America, there's a programme called 'The Swan.' They take 12 ugly people and call them 'ugly ducklings.' They spend six months and have everything done – plastic surgery, teeth, everything. And then they have this moment where their family is brought in, and they are revealed. It's scary. -Trinny Woodall

Being a person who has had plastic surgery and goes to the gym five days a week to work my muscles up so they don't look atrophied as a 60-year-old, I don't disparage people who want to maintain their appearance. But what I don't want is a society that tells me I have to. -Faye Wattleton

I'm scared by the enormous amount of bottled water being consumed today, instead of people drinking filtered tap water. Did you know that nearly 90 percent of those plastic bottles are not recycled and wind up in landfills where it takes thousands of years for the plastic to decompose? -Robert Englund

I have not had any plastic surgery in any shape or form. No implants. And my hair is not dyed. -Pierce Brosnan

I have a random array of ball markers in my bag and don't use any specific one. Many are the plastic kind you find at almost any golf course. -Matt Kuchar

I jog every day, but I haven't had plastic surgery – though that's not to say if one day I look in the mirror and go 'Ugh!' I won't have something done. -Suzi Quatro

A Birkin bag is a very good rain hat; just put everything else in a plastic bag. -Jane Birkin

I hate the hand that comes out of a car and just drops litter in the street. I hate that! For some reason, it just fills me with fury! It's just utter laziness, lack of interest in other people, lack of interest in the planet, in the hedgehog who might eat the plastic bag, it's a lack of concern. -Joanna Lumley

I hope people understand that when you tax corporations that the concrete and the steel and the plastic don't pay. People pay. And so when you tax corporations, either the employees are going to pay or the shareholders are going to pay or the customers are going to pay. And so corporations are people. -Mitt Romney

Who doesn't love digging into a plate of crab cakes or going after a chilled cracked crab with crab cracker, cocktail fork and a plastic bib for protection? -Tom Douglas

I think women in Hollywood who don't do Botox and plastic surgery are revered. I revere them… My plan is to never go there. I'm too vain to get plastic surgery because I don't like how it looks, and I want to look my best. -Evangeline Lilly

In the suburban Midwestern Reform Jewish world I was raised in, in the nineteen-seventies and eighties, grown men built plastic scale models of Israeli tanks and F-15 jets and displayed them throughout the house, dangling the warplanes from bedroom ceilings with fishing line. -Rick Perlstein

Richard Leacock and I ran into a guy who knew how to carve up a camera, and we had him carve one up for us. We had him chop it down and change the gears from metal to plastic, which would cut down on the sound it made when it was running. -Robert Drew

In Hollywood they're getting younger, but believe me, it's not the food. It's the plastic surgery. -S. Jay Olshansky

We're now able to 3D print in 200 different materials, from titanium to rubber, plastic, glass, ceramic, leathers, and even chocolate. -Peter Diamandis

The most direct evidence of the wonderful plasticity and elasticity of red corpuscles is obtained when they are watched in a current, where they can be caught against a projecting edge and bent by the pressure of the current flowing past them. -August Krogh

One of the criticisms we get is, 'Does the world need more plastic crap?' But you have to look beyond the plastic crap, to the design, to the experience, to the empowering nature of the MakerBot and the community. -Bre Pettis

When I was a child, I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with The Spice Girls. I had the Buffalo shoes, a customised Baby Spice necklace – when I say custom-made, it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a Union Jack dress. -Blake Lively

The mind-brain is lived only from a first-person perspective, and it is a dynamic, plastic organ that changes in relation to the environment. -Siri Hustvedt

Having plastic surgery is pathetic. You don't look any younger; you look well for a bit until it starts going again, but it takes all the character out. -Judy Parfitt

At first, my bedroom had flowers and yellow walls and huge furniture in plastic that was orange and green – and furry green bed cover and everything. Then, I think the day I turned 13, I painted the walls black and put Kurt Cobain on the wall and just changed everything into a dark theme. -Tove Lo

I've got nothing against plastic surgery at all. I know lots of people, young and old, who've had it. The point about good surgery is you can't see it. The important thing is not to go crazy – and not to go to a bad surgeon. -Suki Waterhouse

Broadcasting is plastic; while it can ape the press, it can also emulate the arts. -Louis MacNeice

A game of chess is a visual and plastic thing, and if it isn't geometric in the static sense of the word, it is mechanical, since it moves. It's a drawing; it's a mechanical reality. -Marcel Duchamp

I just really love the cartoon form. I love the plasticity of it. -Roz Chast

Did I collect baseball cards? I've got 10 books full of plastic in my mother's house. All the Upper Decks, the Fleers, the Fleer Ultras. My grandfather brought me to the trade shows. I collected Marvel cards, too. -Action Bronson

I had some interesting costumes… the one that I remember right offhand is Zorro when I was a lot younger. I was a big time Zorro fan. My mom helped me make it, and I remember having a big issue with the fact that she wouldn't let me carry around a real metal sword; it just had to be plastic. -Sam Hunt

My parents are both English. My dad is a plastic surgeon – his name's Norman Waterhouse, but we call him Normy. And my mom's a nurse, which is how they met – in a hospital, over decaying bone. -Suki Waterhouse

The first coat I ever bought is in a plastic bag in about five pieces. It's by Sonia Rykiel. I can't wear it anymore, but I still like it. -Suki Waterhouse

I'm not a fan of plastic surgery. Oh, and I've never had a wax in my life. Waxing makes no sense to me because you have to grow it out to wax it. -Elizabeth Banks

If we think of our chromosomes – they carry our genetic material – as being like shoelaces, I work on the plastic tips at the end that protect them. -Elizabeth Blackburn

We can move water easily with plastic pipes. We can move shade around with nursery cloth like a tinker toy for animals and plants. Yet we have developed this necessity to grow food with chemical fertiliser because we have forgotten the magic of manure. -Joel Salatin

I collected X-Men, Spider-Man, and Daredevil comics. I definitely had a few Captain America comics lying around in those protective plastic baggies. -Kenneth Choi

I am proud to say that I plastic-wrapped Bruno Ricci's toilet in his trailer. -Kenneth Choi

I really don't think plastic surgery is a good idea. People who've had it done don't look younger or better, they just look like they've had plastic surgery. -Eliza Doolittle

The same oil that gets burned as fuel is also the entire basis for the petrochemical industries, so our clothing, our plastics and our pharmaceuticals all come from oil and its derivatives. -Craig Venter

My obsession is plastic packaging. It makes me sick, all the waste. Everything about it disappoints me. -Theo James

Chemicals are not currently tested for their endocrine disruption potential before they are approved for use and enter our environment, and there are endocrine disruptors in a vast array of products we come into contact with every day, including organochlorine pesticides, plastics, fuels, and other industrial chemicals. -Joel Fuhrman

L.A. is conventional to a hyper-real degree. It's plastic. -Lisa Cholodenko

I have a stack of those plastic card hotel room keys that I picked up on this latest book tour. It's about a yard tall. Ah yes, a stack of lonely nights. -Billy Collins

The scar on my eye is a result of the doctor's sewing up my face. It was 450 stitches and plastic surgery. -Charlie Puth

One can rightly speak of an evolution in plastic art. It is of the greatest importance to note this fact, for it reveals the true way of art – the only path along which we can advance. -Piet Mondrian

It has become progressively clearer that the plastic expression of true reality is attained through dynamic movement in equilibrium. Plastic art affirms that equilibrium can only be established through the balance of unequal but equivalent oppositions. -Piet Mondrian

The clarification of equilibrium through plastic art is of great importance for humanity. It reveals that although human life in time is doomed to disequilibrium, notwithstanding this, it is based on equilibrium. It demonstrates that equilibrium can become more and more living in us. -Piet Mondrian

All individual thought is dissolved in universal thought, as all form is dissolved in the universal plastic means of Abstract-Real painting. -Piet Mondrian

The meaning of words has become so blurred by past usage that 'abstract' is identified with 'vague' and 'unreal,' and 'inwardness' with a sort of traditional beatitude… The conception of the word 'plastic' has also been limited by individual interpretations. -Piet Mondrian

Golf has always been a part of my life. My parents have footage of me in a walker swinging a plastic club. If I didn't play golf, I would have been a baseball player. I could sit and watch baseball all day. -Peter Uihlein

Little do we find any Phoenician architecture or plastic art at all comparable even to those of Italy, to say nothing of the lands where art was native. -Theodor Mommsen

I don't happen to approve of plastic surgery. I think God put plastic surgeons on this earth for good reasons – people get burned or people might have a nose like Pinocchio and that has to be fixed. But to just chop yourself up to look a few years younger? You could come out looking like a Picasso picture. -Iris Apfel

I think the plasticity of the novel is its greatest challenge. There are no rules; there is no necessary form. You can know what you want it to be, or do, and still not know how to write it. There are endless possibilities, infinite choices. What voice should it be in? What events to start with? What characters will be part of it? -Sue Miller

These days, checks are direct-deposited, money comes out of a machine in the wall, and we swipe a plastic card to make a purchase. In other words, your kids can grow up thinking money comes in an endless supply if you don't show them otherwise. -Jean Chatzky

E-readers are uninspired. They're slabs of plastic with fiddly controls and display a badly-formatted, typographically impoverished rendering of a paper book. That's not the electronic book I want. I want a gorgeous physical object, with paper pages, that can transform into any story I choose, perfectly presented on the page. -Nick Harkaway

Prior to Magellan, due to the fact that we knew it was so hot on Venus, we thought that the rocks at the surface would behave more plastically, more like Silly Putty than like solid rock in the way that we think of it, like the rocks that I'm sitting on. -Ellen Stofan

The adoration of human nature by the Greeks appeared in Greek plastic art and was the cause of its excellence. -Elie Metchnikoff

I am the despair of my accountant; I am the plastic bags of receipts. -Val McDermid

One of my big pet peeves is single-use plastic bags. I think it's one of the stupidest ideas in the world. -Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

I hate plastic bottles. Just think about it before you buy one. We pay more for a gallon of water than we do for a gallon of gas. I think people will realize that water quality standards in most municipalities are as good or better for the stuff coming out of the tap than bottled water companies. You'll save money and save the environment, too. -Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

I read that all dogs have wolf DNA in them, which seemed preposterous because my dog, Tucker, is… afraid of plastic bags blowing in the wind. I thought, 'How can Tucker have wolf in him? How can this be?' So I started researching it. -W. Bruce Cameron

Our brains have the ability to reorganize themselves by forming new neural connections throughout our lives. This ability is called neuroplasticity. -Elizabeth Thornton

Because of the power of neuroplasticity, you can, in fact, reframe your world and rewire your brain so that you are more objective. You have the power to see things as they are so that you can respond thoughtfully, deliberately, and effectively to everything you experience. -Elizabeth Thornton

The key to transforming mental models is to interrupt the automatic responses that are driven by the old model and respond differently based on the new model. Each time you are able to do this, you are actually loosening the old circuit and creating new neural connections in your brain, often referred to as self-directed neuroplasticity. -Elizabeth Thornton

Polymer synthesis in the 1950s was dominated by Karl Ziegler and Giulio Natta, whose discoveries of polymerization catalysts were of great importance for the development of the modem 'plastics' industry. -Alan J. Heeger

Pollution from oil and gas development, toxic runoff, and miles and miles of plastic trash foul the waters and threaten marine life. -Frances Beinecke

Near my desk, I keep a large plastic carton filled with fresh notebooks and stationery of various kinds, sizes, and qualities. -Michael Dirda

I swear there are things you can do to work on problem areas without having to think about plastic surgery. -Kylie Jenner

I don't carry cash often. I'm all about the plastic. -Brendan Robinson

It's double talk and double standards. It's like, be honest, but don't be too honest. Look fresh-faced and young, but don't tell us how you got there. God forbid you have plastic surgery, even though we're telling you, 'Oh, you look old.' Be a career woman, but also, why aren't you having kids? Are you some kind of cold shrew? -Rachel Bloom

The brain, which is plastic when young, must be exposed to certain sights early in life, or it will remain blind to those sights forever. -Sam Kean

I'd rather look old than look as if I'd had plastic surgery. Sometimes it looks really fake; all people can think about when they look at you is that you've had plastic surgery. -Heather Graham

Everybody does what she needs. And if you want plastic surgery, and then you feel better, why not? There is no law. I've nothing against using something to help your beauty – but do it in a good way, with intelligence. -Monica Bellucci

When I arrived to study at Oxford in October 1963, the bohemian style was black plastic or leather jackets for women and black leather or navy donkey jackets for men. I stuck to cavalry twills and a duffle coat, at least for a few months. -Tariq Ali

Back in the day, I actually studied photography in Florence for a few months, and my photography teacher took away my digital camera and said, 'No, use this – it's analog and it's square.' It was a Holga camera, a very cheap $3 or $4 plastic camera. And that's what inspired 'Instagram'. -Kevin Systrom

Growing up, I had only one good pair of shoes. So on rainy school days, my mom would slip plastic bread bags over them to keep them dry. But I was never embarrassed. Because the school bus would be filled with rows and rows of young Iowans with bread bags slipped over their feet. -Joni Ernst

You look at, like, a 'People' magazine, which used to be a really good, you know, nice magazine you could go to for real stories. It wasn't like a 'Star' or an 'US Weekly' and they have somebody with plastic surgery on the cover, Heidi Montag. And it's obviously what consumers want, because why else would they be doing it? -Chelsea Handler

Here at home, we're in a world of right angles and human construct, so whether it's cement or plastic or steel, everything is at an angle. But nature is chaos theory in full play. So having that uniqueness of what nature is gives me a sense of rejuvenation and scale. -Conrad Anker

Being on food stamps can be demeaning. Cashiers know the difference between the new plastic SNAP cards and a credit card. Some food stamp recipients say some cashiers have made them feel uncomfortable and embarrassed. -Donna Brazile

The truth is that much of the plastic surgery we see today has a racial or ethnic component because it has to do with inherently racial concepts of physical perfection, like the 'Roman nose.' -Jess Row

In our culture, good looks are so important, and today he'd head straight for a plastic surgeon, but in Cyrano's time, the nose was who he was, and it didn't matter that he was a brilliant poet, a brilliant swordsman, a brilliant man. His nose defined him. -Douglas Hodge

I like that Brita makes tap water taste good, so you don't need to spend money or waste plastic with bottled water. -Stephen Curry

Do I believe in plastic surgery? Yes, if something is wrong and you can modify it. For certain people, it's right. -Aerin Lauder

Unless we understand a certain material – metal or resin and plastic – understanding the processes that turn it from ore, for example – we can never develop and define form that's appropriate. -Jonathan Ive

People are hungry for someone who is real. They are hungry for something that is not the same plastic nonsense that has cause us to have such little respect for our political process and our political officials. -Matt Bevin

I was lucky that I started very young, since I had a very clear idea of what I wanted to do. But my father is very conservative, and he never considered fashion to be a real career but something I could pursue as a hobby. He wanted me to be a doctor, and at one point, I thought of becoming a plastic surgeon. -Edgardo Osorio

When I'm working, on sets or stages, my contracts specify in the rider that no plastic bottles be used. When I'm playing with my band, we all use metal and non-plastic containers for drinking to be ecologically sensitive and show others that this is the way to go. -Jeff Bridges

I really wanted to have a different approach of beauty because when I came to America, they were still heavily, heavily plastic. The ads were so heavily retouched. -Francois Nars

I'm not so interested in perfect, plastic beauty, and I think it translates in the girls I've shot over the years for Nars, from Guinevere to Iris to Mariacarla. I love those girls. I love the more interesting faces, with maybe a strange nose, not just the Texan blonde. By picking those girls, I think it's changed what I've seen in other campaigns. -Francois Nars

We are being choked to death by the amount of plastic that we throw away. It's killing our oceans. It's entering into our bodies in the fish we eat. -Kevin Bacon

I stopped using plastic cooking spoons years ago and love my bamboo spoons and spatulas by Bambuhome. -Anna Getty

I don't care what I look like. I must be comfortable. Some of my friends have plastic surgery and Botox, but I'm not interested in it. -Miriam Margolyes

I have trouble keeping plants alive. Even plastic ones. -Jane Krakowski

It's silly – you go to a plastic chapel in Vegas, you get married in 10 minutes, and it takes you 10 years to get divorced. -Michael Cimino

I still wear my write-in wristband. It used to be plastic, but my husband turned it into gold. -Lisa Murkowski

Cold weather probably played a bigger role in bringing back the hat, but sadly, the hat common to New Jersey guidos, South Carolina rednecks, Idaho potato farmers and Los Angeles gang bangers is the ubiquitous 'tractor hat,' which is derived from the cheap baseball style cap with the adjustable plastic tab. -Roger Stone

I would say 90 percent of the scripts that show up on my door are women who have had lots of plastic surgery that are married to rich men – sort of a trophy wife. -Jennifer Coolidge

What I've never understood is why some women use plastic surgery to make themselves more attractive to men. The most beautiful woman is someone who's happy and is always smiling. -Irina Shayk

Everybody literally thinks I've had plastic surgery. My mom's family call her, and they're like, 'Did Hailey do her lips? Did she do her nose?' Do people want me to go to a doctor and have them examine my face so they can tell people I haven't? My face has just matured. I grew into my looks. -Hailey Baldwin

I don't think badly of or oppose having plastic surgery. I once seriously thought of it, but I decided to take my appearance as it is. -Park Shin-hye

All my Dominican friends live in an area called Los Venaga. Their houses are shacks. They'd invite us over to dinner, and we'd sit in plastic chairs on the dirt inside a house. -Maika Monroe

I always felt like I was kind of an outsider because I didn't have the right things. I didn't have a Cadillac. I didn't have, you know, plastic on my furniture. That was the right way to be if you were Italian. -Leah Remini

With a 3D printer, you could build your own car, one part at a time. When you were finished, you'd have an automobile that is extremely lightweight because it is made of plastic, which is good because you'd need to carry it because it is made of plastic. -W. Bruce Cameron

I used to go trick-or-treating all the time. When I was young we had the plastic mask with the rubber band that would cut your face, and you couldn't breathe and it was really sweaty! I had the Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man. I used to love the Incredible Hulk, and then one year I had the great idea to be Mr. T, and that was an awesome costume too. -Kenan Thompson

I used to draw and make plastic figurines and watch 'Wallace and Gromit' films. -Taron Egerton

I'll come up with an idea for a character, and I'll write some jokes and make sure that that character is going to have some legs to it – that it's really going to work. If I can come up with jokes and material that I think will work, then I make a cheap version of the doll. Achmed started out just being this little plastic toy from the store. -Jeff Dunham

Freeze herbs by stem and all – don't just freeze the leaves. It's better to keep them sturdier. Put the stems and the leaves together into a plastic bag, and just wrap it up and freeze it like that. -Alex Guarnaschelli

Sometimes a single item can wrap up, in a nutshell, who a person is. In my grandparents' home, a clear plastic container was enthroned on top of the mahogany bar for at least a decade. Painted on the lid in pink, yellow and light blue was 'Have a Nosh With Mort & Ethel'. -Lisa Lutz

We didn't want our kids raised in a place plagued by smog and plastic surgery. -Isaac Hanson

I was doing some research and stuff and reading about Bowie. When he referred to his music as 'plastic soul,' I was like, 'That is the coolest thing I've ever heard.' -Joshua Ostrander

The brain is plastic, continuously changing its organization. -Ellen Ullman

I don't think I would ever have plastic surgery; there isn't anything I'd want to change. -Sonia Rykiel

The first recipe I made was a disaster. I'd been chopping and pressing dates to create a raw brownie, and I thought it would work even better if I blended them in a food processor. So I went and bought one specially. When my boyfriend at the time came over to try the results, he took one bite and spat it out – I'd left the plastic on the blades. -Ella Woodward
