    • Sarah: (about poking fun at Britney Spears and her children at the 2007 VMA's) The joke that everyone was most upset about--me calling the kids "adorable little mistakes"--was the most innocuous joke. It never occurred to me that this would be deemed hurtful or over the line. I don't want to get in feuds with girls half my age. I'm in it to be funny, not for the drama. It's embarrassing.

    • Sarah: And then before going back for my sophomore year, I decided to change my major to arts and sciences, and my dad cut a deal with me: He said if I'd quit school he'd pay my rent for the next three years, as if I were in school.

    • Sarah: (First time her mouth got her into trouble) Oh, I was young. My dad thought it would be funny to teach his little girl swear words. He thought it was hilarious when I would yell them at grocery stores.

    • Sarah: (On Masi Oka being in an episode of The Sarah Silverman Program) How about that? We shot the pilot before Heroes and I didn't even know he was a real actor! When we went to use him again they said he was doing some show called Heroes. I was like 'Tell him to blow it off! He'd rather do that than play a clerk?'"

    • Sarah: Comedically, this show is just what I dreamed, but I don't think we'll ever have a "very special episode" of The Sarah Silverman Program. I like real stuff, real relationship stuff, and having, like, feelings - but never in exchange for it being funny.

    • Sarah: I just think of myself as a comedian, really. I mean, I talk about being Jewish a lot. It's funny because I do think of myself as Jewish ethnically, but I'm not religious at all. I have no religion.

    • Sarah: I don't set out to offend or shock, but I also don't do anything to avoid it.

    • Sarah: People say I'm a nice girl saying terrible things. I tend to say the opposite of what I think. You hope that the absolute power of that transcends, and reaches the audience.

    • Sarah: People are always introducing me as "Sarah Silverman, Jewish comedienne." I HATE that! I wish people would see me for who I really am- I'm white!
