When her introduction to politics was a success: “I can hardly hear you, John! The cheering and accolades are drowning out your gentle voice.”
When she resonated with a character: “The last time I felt this emotionally encumbered, I was playing Lady Macbeth on a Crystal Skies cruise ship during Shakespeare at Sea Week.”
When she found out the internet thought she was dead: “What is the source of this falsehood? And what photo are they using?”
When she informed the Jazzagals of the true meaning of ‘ensemble’: “When one of us shines, all of us shine.”
When she was deeply concerned by David’s disappearing act: “I was worried sick, dear! ‘Where’s David? Or his bags?’”

When she encouraged David to get back to work: “You are bored, lethargic and practically dripping with ennui.”
When she was envious of another’s misfortune: “Oh, I’d kill for a good coma right now.”
