    • [On growing up in Canada]
      Bonnie McFarlane: Well I grew up in Canada in a really small town. We didn't have running water for a long time and we didn't have TV. Then when we did get TV we only had one channel.

    • [On her comedic style]
      Bonnie McFarlane: I still don't really know what my style is. I like a lot of different kinds of comedy, I like watching it and I like being inventive and original. That's the problem with doing a longer set - you can't do every joke that you have because some stuff contradicts other stuff. Even when you know that the audience knows that you're joking and it's not true, you still can't do a joke about your family dying and then later talk about your Mom. I mean you want to keep some kind of cohesive order going.

    • [On her sister]
      Bonnie McFarlane: My sister is also retarded. Across the board. She's a one hundred per cent, honest to goodness, born that way retard. I learned a long time ago that if you're going to tell a story about your retarded sister, you need to mention she's retarded right off the bat or inevitably, at the end of the story, someone will say, " she, retarded?" And then you have to go, "Uh...yeah, she is." Followed by a lengthy, awkward silence.

    • [On her character from the UPN sitcom Social Studies]
      Bonnie McFarlane: Kit Weaver is rebellious, she's like the coolest kid in the class, only she gets paid for it. She's a dedicated teacher, but she doesn't take herself too seriously.
