- Casey Wilson

Good Same Thing

Out Lot

- Cassadee Pope

Atmosphere Records

We are now beyond nature's normal variation in terms of how the atmosphere is composed. Nature did something for a million years.

- James Balog

Boston Idea

Most of the pilots I choose do not have high-concept ideas, so for me it's not the idea as much as the execution of the idea, and if the idea, like you take a bar in Boston, that's not a high-concept idea. But if it's executed well, it makes a great show.

- James Burrows

- James Comey

Reasonable Manner

I put on such a good show, the story is outrageous, and people don't want to hear that I'm basically a reasonable human being. As long as it continues to get me print, I'll continue to perform in an exuberant manner.

Big England

'X-Files' wasn't a big show in England.

King Five

My first show was 'The King and I' when I was five.

Week Away

Honestly, I try to forget Fashion Week once it's over. I just want to go home and rest and just forget I even did it. It could drive you crazy! It's just show after show after show, and you're missing your family and they feel really far away. You don't go to sleep. You work for a month.

- Chanel Iman

I have an Internet radio show where people can call in for healing.

Experience Ringing

I happened to fall into a job that wound up being a seminal piece of television history, which was a show I did on HBO called 'The Wire.' That experience really set the bar for me and opened a lot of doors. It also gave me a lot of street cred in terms of my phone ringing and job offers.

- Deirdre Lovejoy

Winter Genuinely

I get a good colour in summer but go really pale in winter, and it genuinely doesn't suit me, as people ask me if I'm ill. As well as making me look a bit better, I often have to be tanned in the middle of winter to do a show or programme, so I've road-tested every fake tan on the market.

- Deirdre O'Kane

Thought Some

My plan was to go to New York and do some theatre, and then I got the script for 'Psych.' I was like, 'Ahh - just as I thought I was out, you pulled me back in!'

Time Favorite Show

'Twin Peaks' is my favorite show of all time.

Play Own

For me, when working on a film or play or television show, everything for me starts with the screenplay and I am devoted to that and that is what I work from. Any research I do or any preparation I do on my own is all ultimately in service of that.

- Denise Crosby

I Think Air

I think that show will go down in history... people will scratch their heads and say 'How did this ever get on the air?' I mean, they finally have a planet that's populated with a black race and then they present them as savage warriors, and the men want the white girl!

- Denise Crosby

Some Computerized

There are a lot of people using technology that are playing to a click with backing vocals already stuck in there on some computerized thing that runs along in time to the show so they have these amazing vocals that are only partly the guys on stage producing them at the time.

- James Young

It's very clear to users, more clear than in other apps, that Foursquare is an app for search and discovery, and we're very good at delivering you a social map that will show you friends' faces on the map and things that you might like.

Kid Led

I was thrilled as a kid to point out my sister as she danced and sang on the stage, and she was pretty good artistically. She was a great inspiration to me. She was the one who sort of led me into show business.

- Jamie Farr

Start Over

I just focus on one show, when this is over then I'll start looking at what is coming up.

- Dennis Muren

Mirror Had

The biggest lesson I've learned from my children is to look in the mirror at myself, not at them. I've realized that everything I've done has had an impact on them. We have to understand that they are like little paparazzi. They take our picture when we don't want them to and then they show it to us in their behavior.

- Jamie Lee Curtis

Kid Away

I was a kid who did a kid show. Then I went away and raised my child, and the world has never met me as an adult.

I don't have some sort of moral dilemma with coming as a guest to an event or a fashion show.

- Derek Blasberg

World Series

You don't just accidentally show up in the World Series.

Baltimore Movie

My dream is to be able to make something in Baltimore that's just there. Make a movie or make a show there. I only left because there wasn't any opportunity except being an extra in Barry Levinson or John Waters movies.

- Derek Waters

Small Through

My first Ramones show was at a small club in Columbus, Ohio, in 1978. It was a transformative experience, even though my memories are a little blurry, since someone kicked me in the head halfway through the show, probably during 'Beat on the Brat.'

- Derf

Enjoy Some

I enjoy the crafts on the show enormously, too, when we have experts in showing how to make things. You watch them thinking you'll go home and do the things yourself, which is fun. Some I have done myself later on.

- Jane Asher

Love Play

I love nothing better than to get all the nuts and bolts out of the way - show up on time, with lines learned, clear on what the director expects of me, with my buttons buttoned and my jewelry on correctly - and then I completely commit to play acting.

- Jane Elliot

Love Bags

I love travelling, but I have to admit I didn't initially take to Agra in India. As soon as you arrive, someone wants to show you around, take your bags or sell you something - and it's just a bit of a culture shock. You just have to make the necessary mental adjustment to the setting.

- Dexter Fletcher

Cut Before

LYou can get yourself cut and stitched, or you can get a good girdle. The day before my first Emmy show, I went to Sears and bought a really good girdle. And I've worn that thing to every single awards show since!

- Jane Kaczmarek

Think Episodic

It takes a lot out of you to do a one-hour episodic lead of a show. I don't think actors realize that when they take the job.

- Jane Krakowski

Want Awesome

Who wouldn't want to be an 'American Idol' judge? It's an awesome, awesome show.

- Jane Krakowski

Love Learning

I love 'Mastermind'. It's touching that people spend so much time learning. I do have quite good general knowledge, but I wouldn't consider going on the show. I also like watching 'Only Connect.'

- Diana Rigg

Every Day Sound

I tour alone. There's no sound check, no back up. I stay with the hosts; I am in a family home and it's really nourishing. I just have to remember after the show not to run out into the living room in my pyjamas. Every day, it's a new relationship being built. It's odd and wonderful.

- Jane Siberry

Love I Love

I love supernatural stuff. 'Battlestar Galactica' was my favorite show.

- Janina Gavankar

Nashville Before

I was interviewed for a Grammy television show, and they asked me about Nashville, and I talked for three minutes and when I finished, I was teared up. The whole room was crying. Nashville has given me a home, where I never had a home before.

- Janis Ian

Resolve Actual

There comes a time when deceit and defiance must be seen for what they are. At that point, a gathering danger must be directly confronted. At that point, we must show that beyond our resolutions is actual resolve.

- Dick Cheney

Why Got

Why not show off if you've got something to show?

- January Jones

Supernatural Telling

I'm a sucker for gag reels and teaser trailers for new seasons. One of the great parts of panels, especially on a show like 'Supernatural,' which can be so dark, it's fun to get up there and laugh and remember we're only telling a story. Seeing Eric Kripke and Ben Edlund up there being so funny always makes me laugh.

- Jared Padalecki

Cop TV

When 'Supernatural' came out, there were a lot of procedurals and you were either a doctor or a cop or lawyer, otherwise the show didn't stay on TV. And then we came around, and I don't want to say we were trailblazers, but we found our niche.

- Jared Padalecki

Old Almost

From the time I was 8 years old I was on almost every radio show there was.

- Dick Van Patten

Complacent Your

As soon as you become complacent your show gets canceled.

- Dick Wolf

Business No Business

It's show business. No show, no business.

- Dick Wolf

Focus The History Of

When it went on the air, the sales department hated it. It was the highest advertising pullout show in the history of NBC. At the early focus groups, people were saying, 'Who are these people? Why should we watch them?

- Dick Wolf

Back Sponsor

There was a three hour differential in performances because the sponsor insisted it be done live for California. You would go on at 8 pm in New York but you would also have to go on at 8 p.m. in California. That meant coming back in to do the show at 11 p.m.

- Dick York

Tone Crowd

That's kind of fuse for the show - those first 10-15 seconds you're onstage. The curtain drops and you see the crowd for the first time and they see you for the first time. The response and the energy that's going on right there - to me, that sets the tone for the rest of the night.

- Jason Aldean

Color Been

Television is much more of a producer's writer's medium, so a lot of the time, when you're directing a television show, they have a color palette on set or a visual style and dynamic that's already been predetermined, and you just kind of have to follow the rules.

- Jason Bateman

Monsters Rationally

I believe it's worth observing terrible things people have done as clearly and rationally as we can to show that our monsters are not caricatures.

- Jason Clarke

Feel Other

I feel for Veronica Mars so much when I'm watching at home. It is a wonderful story. The writing is consistently funny, biting, charming, heart-wrenching, etc. I also like the look of it. The cinematography - different from any other show.

- Jason Dohring

Then Channel

If I'm on a show, then that's my favorite channel.

- Jason Dolley

Play Spectators

I try to put on a show while being effective because the spectators come to be entertained by beautiful play.

- Dimitri Payet

Twenties Been

If nobody has really done a show about people in their twenties that has been successful, why?

- Jason Katims

Passionate Feel

I feel like not only are 'Parenthood' fans passionate, but that passion has grown over the run of the show and people got more invested as the show has gone on. That really does help keep shows on the air.

- Jason Katims

Friday Night Tell

The most frustrating thing to me is when I tell people I work on 'Friday Night Lights,' they'll say, 'Oh, I hear that's a really good show.' They never watched it.

- Jason Katims
