Peter Graves Quotes:

Dr. Boulting - Mitchell's Assistant: Doyou seriously believe that you've established contact with Mars?
Chris Cronyn: [Somewhat annoyed] Well, you take pictures of it. Why shouldn't I talk to it?

Josie Minick: The what?
Jason Meredith: The deadline. We passed it about ten minutes back. Sheep to the south, cattle to the north.
Josie Minick: I don't know anything about a deadline.
Jason Meredith: Well, there's nothing complicated about it. You see, the cowmen opened up this territory and then the sheepmen tried to move in. Well, we had quite a debate. We burned a lot of powder and a lot of lead and we buried a few. And then finally we drew a line across the southeast section of the state. And the sheep stay on one side and the cattle on the other.

Peter Graves Facts
He was a registered Republican.

He said it was almost over for Captain Oveur before the movie Airplane! (1980) took flight. Graves said he was astounded when his agent sent him the script for the 1980 spoof, and after reading it, he felt that it was "the worst piece of junk" he had ever seen. However, he changed his mind after meeting with the movie's writers, Jerry Zucker and David Zucker.

He directed the "Which Dr." episode of "Gunsmoke" (1955), his older brother James Arness being the star of that series.
