#Quote
1[on Lisa Stemple, her character in Mad About You] She was just a juicy character to play. It was such an off-the-wall character that every time I would come on, you'd have to give me the punch line. You had to give that character the punch line. People expected it.
2[on Madonna during A League of Their Own (1992)] She's sweet and vulnerable and she could be caustic and self-protecting. She was so kind to me and I'm really grateful for it. My birthday happened to fall in the middle of shooting and she found out about it and she made sure that I had a cake, she gave me a Dolce and Gabbana outfit.
3[on being an athlete] I've always been an athlete. Strangely enough I never really played softball in my high school / college career but I was athletic enough to learn baseball, which is what they taught us.
4[on A League of Their Own (1992)] I wanted to be cast in the film so badly ... it was my first big job ... so I was just insanely happy. A League of Their Own is the one that launched my career ... yeah ... it was a huge, huge deal in my life.
