“He come to me with money in his hand, he offered me—I did not ask him. I wasn’t knocking someone’s door down, I was running from that. When I got out I was in that, I was already through that, I had that. I had the studio, I went to the studio, I went to Fox studios. I had it all, and I looked at it, and, I said this is a bigger jail than the one I just got out of.
I don’t want to take my time going to work, I got a motorcycle and a sleeping bag, and ten or fifteen girls… What the hell do I want to go off to […] and go to work for? Work for what? money? I’ve got all the money in the world, I am the king man. I run the underworld, guy. I decide [who] does what and where they do it at. Why am I going to run around and act like I am some teeny bopper somewhere for somebody else’s money? I make the money man, I rule the nickels.
The game is mine. I deal the cards.”
—Charles Manson [original interview]
