  1. On ‘The Mick’ we want to make the funniest family show possible, but maybe pushing the boundaries of which family members you want to be watching — some kids will be too young for it.
  2. I’m drawn to the funny brand of comedy.
  3. Before ‘Sunny’ came along, I would audition and do chemistry reads with very funny actors. And then they would cast someone who was beautiful and benign. I don’t think that very funny men wanted to headline with very funny women. They wanted to be the funny ones, and they wanted the wife to be the wife. That was very frustrating.
  4. I like playing these characters who are just on the edge of ridiculous but always grounded in reality. I would never want to come across as a cartoon.
  5. I feel like people only want to hear me say funny things. Like, I don’t tweet about my kids or being a mom, ever, because I’m very aware that that’s annoying for people to hear.
  6. The funniest people I know were, not necessarily troubled, but had a harder time in school or were shy or picked on or something like that. I think that you rely on it. ‘Well, I don’t think I’m cute and no one wants to hang out with me — I’d better start trying to make people laugh.’ I think there’s an element of that in there.
  7. I’d just like to be good at sports. I’m extremely competitive with absolutely nothing to back it up.
  8. Junior high and elementary school, those girls were so, so mean to me.
  9. I was really shy and kept to the theater department. I was keeping my eyes down when I walked through the halls. So, no nemesis. Not in high school, anyway.
  10. On ‘Sunny,’ the main actors are adults, and we’re all friends, and we all have the same sense of humor, so there’s a lot of improvising.
  11. I was really shy.
  12. When I was 12, I introduced my mom to Def Leppard’s ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me.’ I told her it was an amazing song, and I remember her not really agreeing with me.
  13. I’m never going to understand what Middle America wants, because I’m on a show that Middle America doesn’t necessarily like but I think is really funny.
  14. I love football.
  15. I think people think of Oregon as such a granola, hippie kind of a place.
  16. I’m very attracted to comedy I don’t see coming.
  17. My children have trained me well for multitasking.
  18. You can take anything, and if you explore it right, you can make it funny.
  19. I’d do a really good job playing Trisha Yearwood.
  20. On ‘Sunny,’ we’re not trying to be a family show. We’re literally trying to make the funniest show possible.
