1If you're a caretaker, who are you when there's no one else to take care of?
2I'm not the most delicate - I'm not the most graceful person, and I like playing a sport where being not delicate and not graceful is actually a good thing.
3I've done an informal, anecdotal survey about marriage, and I've found no evidence that it brings happiness.
4I always want to work.
5Really, I'm just a simple girl from Jersey.
6There's nothing more fun than acting on stage with a live audience and that immediate feedback.
7Most women get pregnant and even though it's a challenge physically and uncomfortable, they generally wanted to be pregnant.
8I think it's good for moms to work. I have three daughters, so I like them to see me working and doing something I'm passionate about.
9I'm from durable stock. I'm made to work. I'm Irish.
10I eat anything, especially sweets. Chocolate, cookies, and I love mint-chip ice cream.
11Witness protection just makes for exciting stories and it's a really rich sort of place to grab stories from... people starting over completely, saying goodbye to their lives before... it never ends in terms of story opportunities.
12I love Los Angeles. I love when people make fun of it. I think, 'Good, don't come.' All the jokes about it feel out of date.
13Five years is a long time to play one part.
14You won't believe what our kids are eating in the public schools. It's just nuts.
15I can be a little acerbic.
16I mean one of the weird things about TV and one of the things that some actors don't like but I kind of dig is that you never know where you're headed, I mean you never know what the writer might think of next.
