Quotes

[Axl Rose pulls out a sharp object from under his kilt]
Johnny Gomez: Nick, what the hell is this psycho doing?
[Celtic music played in background]
Nick Diamond: Ancient Scottish soldiers wearing kilts such as Axl's always carried a dagger strapped to their ankle. Tradition has it that once a soldier removes it from its scabbard, he can't put it back without drawing blood... even if it's his own.
Johnny Gomez: It's scissors, Nick.
[Celtic music abruptly stops]
Nick Diamond: Oh... uh, that must be a different tradition.

I remember when i first watched celebrity deathmatch way back in 1998, i absolutely loved it and i still do, i like the celebrities fighting. I thought that the creation of each celebrity was fantastic to do, i hope that this programme will go on for a long while, like the same with the simpsons
