Quotes

#Quote
1They [Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney] have a respect for each other that is amazing. They are able to argue and listen to each other without getting defensive ... and that makes it a really comfortable place to voice your own opinion and offer ideas.
2I really like her insecurity. She definitely is despicable, you can't really argue with that. I don't think she's hate-able because it all stems from her raging insecurity and they're so mean to her. I think there is just something really funny about that to me. (On her character of Dee Reynolds)
3I wasn't in a hurry to take everything that came along. It's pretty important to me to be proud of the work I do. I didn't want to just be cute and on TV. I wanted to be funny.
4I feel happy to be the only girl on the show. We get along really well, we're all really good friends now, I don't feel left out. I think that they were surprised that a girl could hang out and have fun with them, and I was like, "Really? You guys don't know any funny women? That's too bad.
5I'm just a giant fan of Will Ferrell and Sasha Baron Cohen. They make me laugh so hard, I make hideous noises and that's a good sign. I also love Michael Cera; I think that kid is hilarious. And Annette Bening. She's one of my heroes. I think she's amazing because she's hysterically funny without trying too hard.
6I wish I had some dirt on Danny DeVito, but he is honestly the nicest, sweetest man I've ever met in my life. I love him, I love being around him. He's become like a part of our family. His wife and kids are amazing. Like, he's the happiest man I've ever known. He doesn't really have much to be sad about.
