Throwing the brick was fun but I don't want Mouth to cross over into that stalker territory. His thing with Brooke is all a part of growing up. I relate to him a lot. I think he has a good head on his shoulders. I think he'll come out okay.
—Lee Norris
There's definitely been a Brooke in my life. I think a lot of guys have a Brooke in their life. You know, that girl that you sort of look up to from a far. The kind who seems kind of unobtainable, yet she is just sweet enough that you always have that hope that she will come around. Yeah, I have definitely had that.
—Lee Norris
