  • It doesn't matter who you love, it's that you love.
  • I didn't get Will & Grace (1998) until I was almost 40. Had I listened to everybody else who kept saying, 'Oh, there's too much competition, you'll never get an agent, you'll never get a part, 90 percent of actors are out of work," if I'd listened to that, if everybody listened to that, then nobody would leave the house and the world would come to a crashing halt.
  • When I went up there and accepted the [second] Emmy, I remembered that when I was about 20, a psychic told me I was going to win two Emmys that were going to be like bookends for playing a secretary on a sitcom. And I said, 'I'm not going to do sitcoms. I'm a great actress and I'm going to change the world.'
  • I'll quit coffee. It won't be easy drinking my Bailey's straight, but I'll get used to it. It'll still be the best part of waking up.
  • I'm getting to do choreography, which I really love. Stephanie [Hunt] doesn't have any formal dance training. But she picks up the moves quickly. It's interesting, my coming from a dance background. I don't have anything to compare it to, except musical comedy. It's easier to break things down, even if you're working on a writing piece.
  • I got to be the lead in a few ballets that required acting ability, story ballets. But then I realized in the midst of 36 fouettes that what I really liked was not the 36 fouettes. What I preferred were the parts where I had a mad scene and then died from love."

  • My favorite thing to do is just stay home with Nick and the dogs and read or watch movies and just hand out together.
  • Karen Walker was always such a lawless rebel: carrying a gun in her purse, flirting with 14-year-old boys. She's the worst. You know that horrible guy Milo Yiannopoulos? She has about as many redeeming qualities as he has.
  • Ballet gave me a sense of discipline and a work ethic. It's funny, it's been so long since I've been in a ballet company, but some of it sticks with me.
  • Selling a band predicated on nothing is always an interesting proposition, and of course, the fact of the matter is that I really started out in music before I ever acted, and I've done a ton of singing.
  • It's funny when you follow your own sort of bliss, then other people tend to respond in kind, meaning audiences. It's really weird how that works, but it does seem to apply to 'Nancy & Beth' especially.
  • I think of myself as a character actress, and Karen's just one of the characters I've gotten to play, but I feel like Karen takes on so much more weight because the show was on for eight seasons, and it was such a popular show. But you have to move on to telling another story in a different world.
  • John Cleese was my personal favorite because he played my husband for a whole season - and Minnie Driver. We almost had our own, spin-off - the show within the show- all living in a house together. And Gene Wilder was just so dear. Then, of course, Alec Baldwin and my friend Molly Shannon.
  • Isn't that sort of what happened with gay marriage? Right before gay marriage was legalized, everybody was just losing their minds and, like, the worst possible things were happening, and it seemed as if it couldn't get any worse, and then it suddenly got a lot better.
  • I consider myself bisexual, and my philosophy is, everyone innately is, although I've never had a full-on relationship with a woman, just a couple of what I'd term half-assed dalliances. So I haven't explored it to the degree that I'd like to, but I'll tell you, I'm open to it. And I don't have any problem saying that.
