Newly-Released Bill Cosby Deposition Reveals A Slew Of Questionable Quotes
Court documents from 2005 and 2006 find Bill Cosby divulging new details about his sexual encounters.
The details surrounding another Bill Cosby deposition finds the once-beloved comedian in hot water yet again. In a report by The New York Times, 10-year-old court documents find the actor speaking his piece against Andrea Constand, a basketball manager at Cosby’s Temple University alma mater. Constand argued that Cosby drugged and molested her, leading to a round of questioning at the Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Hotel back in 2005 and 2006.
The report describes Cosby as “an unapologetic, cavalier playboy, someone who used a combination of fame, apparent concern and powerful sedatives in a calculated pursuit of young women.” Claiming to have given Constand one and a half Benadryl pills on the night in question, Cosby also offered details regarding keeping the affair from his wife Camille, as well as a conversation with Constand’s mother following the ordeal. He served as Constand’s mentor, describing his role to include “inviting her to my house, talking to her about personal situations dealing with her life, growth, education.”
While denying that he drugged Constand, Cosby also admitted in the latest deposition to procuring Quaaludes with the intentions to have sex with women he gave them to. Revealing seven prescriptions in total, the comedian said he told the doctor they were for back pain, but that he kept the party drug around “just in case.” When confronted by Constand’s mother about their tryst, to which the woman says was unconsented, Cosby implored Constand to “Tell your mother about the orgasm.”
During the deposition, Cosby also discussed sexual relationships with at least five other women, one whom he admitted to inquiring about her father’s cancer in an effort to have sex with her. Thirteen other women contributed anonymous statements. Read a few quotes from Cosby below:
- “I take her hair and I pull it back and I have her face like this,” he said. “And I’m talking to her ...And I talked to her about relaxing, being strong. And I said to her, come in, meaning her body.”
- “I walk her out. She does not look angry. She does not say to me, don’t ever do that again. She doesn’t walk out with an attitude of a huff, because I think that I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them.”
- “I think you’re making light of a very serious situation,” she said, to which Mr. Cosby replied: “That may very well be.”
- “I am a man, the only way you will hear about who I had sex with is from the person I had it with.”
Q:Why is that?
A: “When I was a boy it was a thing that girls used to say, please don’t tell anybody. But it is something that I’ve learned as you grow older that they’re the first people to go and tell somebody after something has happened.”
- Q. Do you know if any of the rendezvous happened in New York City?
A: "I don’t remember."
Q: How did it end with her?
A: "Stopped calling for rendezvous."
Q: You stopped?
A: "Just moving on."
Q: What does that mean?
A: "Don’t want to see her anymore."
- Q. She says that she stayed with you and that you began talking about her career and asking about her father who had died of cancer. Does any of that ring a bell with you?
Q: Do you remember talking about that?
Q: Do you remember what else you talked about?
A: "That’s enough."
Q: Did you ask her those questions because you wanted to have sexual contact with her
- “[The act of sexual intercourse] is something that I feel the woman will succumb to more of a romance and more of a feeling, not love, but it’s deeper than a playful situation.”
- “What was happening at that time was that that was -- Quaaludes happen to be the drug that kids, young people were using to party with and there were times when I wanted to have them just in case.”
Q. Why didn’t you ever take the Quaaludes?
A. “Because I used them.”
Q: For what?
A: “The same as a person would say have a drink.”

- My wife would not know it was because Andrea and I had had sex and that Andrea was now very, very upset and that she decided that she would like to go to school or whatever it is. We can get back on track.
