Some of the quotes from the AFI Lifetime tribute to Al Pacino which may not make it to the tv screen: Robin Williams: "I’d like to raise a toast to you–but that would send 11 months down the drain."  Pacino: "Why aren’t I in rehab?"  He also paid respects and thanks to: Marty Bregman with whom he made five films "and for guiding my career."  "I’m learning so much about me tonight." He gave thanks to his agent of 20 years, CAA’s Rick Nicita.  To Francis Coppola: "Without him, I wouldn’t be here." To Paul Newman: "It makes me sad you are retiring."
