Sally (in 1985): There is very little that is unbiased about me. I am very proud of my biases. This is not anything but a difference in style. ... I'm much more biased than Phil Donahue is.
Sally: You go to school, you get a master's degree, you study Shakespeare and you wind up being famous for plastic glasses… go figure.
