Personal quotes[]

  • "When I started on the show, Mike and I were engaged. I was writing scripts at home, so Mike would come home and the movie was still on the VCR, and he’d be like, “Oh, God—please!”"
  • "We didn’t have the Internet when we started, so our references were from our own brains. There was no looking stuff up."
