“It always does seem to me that I am doing more work than I should do. It is not that I object to the work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me: the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart.” – Three Men in a Boat, Jerome K Jerome.
“I was looking for something like this because I love all the shows that I’ve gotten to do, but the time commitment is so overwhelming in a single show like West Wing, or even with Mr. Sunshine—that was a single-camera comedy, and the hours are pretty grueling. This multi-cam work is fast and furious, and very civilized in terms of, like, I can go to work and be home for dinner. I can be home to walk my dog. I can have a life and a job—the kind of job that I’ve been waiting for my whole life, I feel like.” – Allison Janney
MATT DIEHL: I recently saw a clip of you being interviewed by Jimmy Kimmel, and you said something so funny and telling: “My mind goes to tragedy first.”
FIONA APPLE: I think everybody’s mind does. That’s why we’re here—why humans have survived. Our ancestors always thought of the worst thing that could happen, and that’s why we’re alive.
DIEHL: So you’re prepared for the worst.
APPLE: Yes, but I also always start with tragedy because if somebody’s going to hurt me, then I want to have gotten there first.
