    • Beth: I don’t think it’s fun to play somebody who is like you. I mean, what’s the challenge in that?

    • Beth: (on her 3rd Emmy loss) Everyone's like, 'Oh, you probably didn't care when you lost the emmy because you had a newborn baby.' And I'm like, 'Are you kidding me?!' I had that kid in my arms at the hospital room and I was like, 'G*d damn it, I friggin' lost again!'

    • Beth: (on watching herself on screen) I watch and think, 'Oh my God, my hands are so big. Why do I use my hands so much?' Or, 'Oh my God, my hair looks terrible.' Or, 'Oh my God, that makes my butt look big.' I'm so critical of myself. I don't think I see myself accurately. I like myself when I'm just Mom at home with my kids and my husband. I feel very attractive. I walk into the studio and suddenly I'm overweight and unattractive and untalented.

    • Beth: (on her body) This is my instrument and I need to use this comfortably.

    • Beth: I was always a very stoic person. I'm not one to give in to tears easily. If I get a card, I'm like, 'Oh, that's nice,' then it goes in the garbage. When they found Elizabeth Smart I had to pull my car over because I started crying so hard. I have become very sentimental. That is a side of my personality that has not been in use for a long time.
