The law is an ass. -- Charles Dickens

On multiple telephone calls to Kaelin from a plane the day after the

On whether he thinks the murders were drug-related:
-- "Let me put it this way. I have no doubt in my mind, no doubt whatsoever, that the answer to these murders are in the world of Faye Resnick."
On why there was a gun and passport in the Bronco during the police
-- "The gun? I had a woman killed. I had a guy, Kato Kaelin, at the time telling me about noises at my house. When I left my house Tuesday (June 14) I had the gun with me. Tuesday. And at that time I wasn't thinking about suicide or anything. ...
"Whatever was in my bag basically, other than the gun and stuff, whatever was in that bag was in that bag Monday when I came back from Chicago."
"My passport is always in that bag."
On why he was carrying a disguise during the police chase:
-- "I was going to Knott's Berry Farm."
"This would not have been the first time I resorted to something like this, taking my kids to Disneyland and stuff. I think the Browns have stated this."
On the 1989 incident in which he allegedly beat Nicole:
-- "Only one incident in '89 in my attempt to get her out of my bedroom which I was totally wrong for. I take full responsibility. ... Nicole and I went on with our lives. But all of this talk about her deposition
-- Nicole has never publicly to any public official, including during our divorce, (said) that O.J. ever beat me at any other time ... All of this crap about diaries and stuff, it didn't exist."
On the pictures of Nicole Brown's bruises: -- "Every picture you saw was from '89. There was one picture that was a make-up thing that Nicole told (her sister) Denise (Brown) and Denise has gone public and said -- the picture that Darden put up on the board -- where I guess he really shouldn't have done it, it was a little trick he was trying to do for the jury, but Denise told someone in some interview that that picture Nicole said was, we were shooting a movie called 'Detour to Terror' ...
On an alleged incident at a restaurant in which Denise Brown testified
that Simpson grabbed Nicole's crotch:
-- "Nicole wasn't upset about anything that happened that night. Many times Nicole would come, if I'm on a stool, and back into me and I'll hug her and say 'this is my sweetheart, she gave me my two lovely kids' and I may have my hand around her waist or something, but I didn't grab her crotch."
"I wouldn't have grabbed her crotch under any circumstances."
On how victims' blood was found in his [Blood on the console] white
-- "I have absolutely no idea. I think we should be asking the LAPD that."
On why he didn't testify at the trial
-- "I think you know (why). I think you know about the stamina and situation of the jury. I think that was quite obvious."
On the expense of the trial
-- "I was innocent, and I did not commit these crimes. And it took all of my life savings, virtually, to prove that, and it shouldn't be that way."
On prosecutor Marcia Clark
-- "Marcia Clark, I got to admit, early on in the trial, I was impressed by her passion, what I thought was passion. As the trial went on, I started thinking ... for me personally, I thought she was devious, and once that trait is in a person's character, I don't see anything else."
On prosecutor Christopher Darden
-- "I don't know, he's just an unhappy person."
On whether he will fight for custody of his two young children
-- "Why not. They're my children."
