Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Sarah: I don't smoke, I try to eat right, and I love doing yoga and going for hikes with my dog.

    • Sarah: (in a 2006 interview) I went overnight from carnivore to vegan at 12. That was my biggest overhaul. I've slowly gone back, later on in life, to fish and then chicken and then, last year, red meat.

    • Sarah: Human beings are not meant to lose their anonymity and privacy.

    • Sarah: I think that as is true in this industry, everything gets blown out of proportion because it's more fun for people to read about. It's even more fun to read about if the stories get wilder and wilder.

    • Sarah: Your home should be your home. People shouldn't be allowed to use whatever crazy lenses they use to catch you waking up in the morning.

    • Sarah: I don't think when people sign up for a life of doing something they love to do they should have to sign up for a complete loss of privacy. I understand a little loss of privacy coming with the job.

    • Sarah: (on the set of "Scrubs") We have such a good time working together. It makes such a difference going to work every day for 14 hours and being able to hang out and have a good time.

    • Sarah: (talking about "Scrubs") I would be sad if it ended now. It's been the best job I've had by a long shot, especially creatively because the writing is so good. Every week I get the script and I laugh out loud and get excited for the different stuff we get to do.

    • Sarah: (talking about "Scrubs") I think it's because it's so different and it takes risks. Plus, it's really smart humor. It gives the audience credit in terms of not needing to tell them when to laugh. I love that about the show. There's no laugh track.

    • Sarah: I've fallen in love with New York City! It was the first time I ever got to stay in New York for an extended period of time. I really enjoyed it.

    • Sarah: (about "Scrubs") Well, we film it on the site of what used to be a real hospital for 30 years. So many people continue to think it's still functional.

    • Sarah: What doctor does not need platform heels and dark black eyeliner to treat their patients?

    • Sarah: (about how "Scrubs" changed her life) Before getting Scrubs, I had always threatened myself I'd have to become a dental hygienist if I quit acting - to me, that would be the hardest job. I would tell myself, 'Just stick it out for a little longer.' It definitely was a turning point.

    • Sarah: (on "Scrubs") When I first opened the script and read the pilot, I was laughing out loud. I just hadn't seen anything on the air like it and I wanted to be a part of it.

    • Sarah: (about "Scrubs") I'm having the time of my life. I've never looked forward to going to work so much every day. I'm loving it; it's great. It's what I love to do and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else.

  • Akward charm

    On the television show Srubs she brings this awkward charm to the show that meshes really well with the rest of the cast, though I don't get the impression that is her true self, she conveys it excellently. She brings a bunch of greaet laughs as Dr. Elliott Reed and off sets Zach Braff's quirky-ness with her akwardness.

    Sarah Chalke Now Out Of "Scrubs" by Dane Youssef

    Anyone who knows about her... what is she gonna do now?

    When someone becomes a big-star on an immortal television show... and that show ends, the fans feel like a close friend has died. And many people ask "What now?" In this case, everyone is asking up-and-down, "What is Sarah gonna do now?" I read a lot of posts from people who are giving her flak for "not looking as good as she used to." I know she's looking kind of... well, right now. But why do you all expect her to look like a Cover Girl every second of every minute of every day? Hey, the girl's getting older, she's pregnant right now... and she's had a lot of injuries from her hobbies like skiing and snowboarding. She's 36. She's having a baby. Come on, guys. Be fair. You're expecting her to look like Helen of Troy in any given... Things break down, people decay and lessen... they alter. These thing happen. "In the end, we are all dust." She's a nice lady. She's a nice, fun, goofy, quirky open lady. Let her be. Let's all not go hatin' on her 'cause she's had the audacity to get older and show signs of wear and tear. All it means... is that the girl has lived life. I hope all-too very much sincerely that her hot streak continues. Her hubby-to-be, her upcoming son, her having a career after "Scrubs." Her "Scrubs" character Elliot's the type you'd have to ask why she became an M.D. You'd expect her to get into psychiatry so she could self-medicate. But she goes all over the place, being brilliant, being clumsy, being stupid, insane, rational, book-smart, ditzy, wise, silly, goony, deep and then more. Elliot is supposed to be a little of every woman, every woman there ever was or will be. I do kind of like Sarah Chalke, even if her Elliot does sort of get on my nerves. Elliot does annoy me, the same way she does Cox. Rubs me all wrong. I can't lie. I know you're supposed to preach to the choir. Many other posters are probably going to feel angry and want to flame anybody who doesn't post the exact same thing they do (these people are hopelessly pathetic). But let everyone toss in their two cents. But you know... I love Sarah. That I do. --All Kind of Love, Dane Youssefmoreless
