  • Quotes

    • Chandra: (on her guilty pleasure) I'm not ready to give them up. I watch everything on ABC and The Young and the Restless. When I get home I spend four hours every day watching. I've been doing it for 15 years.

    • Chandra: (accepting her award at the SAG) First of all, it's about those 10 cast members sitting over there, and the other one in rehab. I mean, y'all are just… holding me together. I thank you so much, 'cause we pull this thing off every week. I love you all for it.

    • Chandra: (whether she'd make a good doctor in real life) Not at all. I tell everyone, 'Don't come to me and ask me for any advice - you could die'. I would be good at the bedside-manner part. I'm good at holding hands and keeping things calm, but don't ask me to diagnose a thing.

    • Chandra (on her Greys Anatomy character, Miranda Bailey): As much as she doesn't want to admit to being human, she is very much so. She's a mother now and the strain that puts on you… It'll be an interesting challenge for her to see if she can continue to juggle that.

    • Chandra: (on hearing she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Greys Anatomy during a promotional visit in Milan) I'm so happy for our show. My family is here so I got hugs right away, and the cast is here, so we're hugging on each other. Maybe we can go have a really expensive dinner.
