    • Terry: (on fellow Star Trek actor Michael Dorn) We could just hit heads and really talk things out. At the time it could be really irritating because we were so tired all the time. But taking that out of the equation, I learned so much from working with Michael, as a person and as a performer. He's a very good friend.

    • Terry: (looking back on her early days as Dax) Knowing what I know now, I think I'm far better prepared to play Dax, just as a woman, as a human being on the planet, being 47 years old. I think I'd do a far better job of playing Dax right now.

    • (on the reasons why she left Star Trek DS9)
      Terry Farrell: My decision was my contract was over, and I didn't really feel it was so much that I wanted more to do, I think I wanted to feel more appreciated. I wanted to be a part of the show, but I wanted to be looked on differently. Did I really always have to get up at four in the morning?

    • (on creating the Dax character)
      :Terry Farrell: I think it was a little of everything, truthfully. I worked with a coach, because it was really hard for me to learn the lines, and she was really good. Ivana Chubbuck, she was an awesome teacher. She helped me work my own sense of humour into the lines when it wasn't written for me, and help me work with my inner life, not just what was typed on the page. I would have to say that Ivana was a huge part in helping me find Dax.

    • Terry Farrell: (talking about how she saw herself as her modeling career was starting) I wanted to be like Vivien Leigh in "Gone With the Wind". I wanted to have black hair, green eyes and break hearts.

    • Terry Farrell: (about "Becker" co-star Ted Danson) Danson is very funny and very attractive. Hell, if he wasn't married, I'd go out with him in a minute.

    • Terry Farrell: (regarding her character of Jadzia Dax on Deep Space Nine and her departure from the show) I begged the producers not to kill me. They thought I was just being this neurotic little actress hoping to have a part to come back to, but I really meant it. I didn't want to see six great years end that way.

    • Terry Farrell (On her "Star Trek: DS9" character While Dax may appear as a young woman, she possesses the wisdom and knowledge that comes from seven lifetimes of experience.

    • Terry Farrell: Well, then it's my responsibility too, because as an actress I have to take the responsibility for taking a part where I have to murder somebody. Is somebody going to get the idea to kill someone from watching it? I have to make the assumption that the people watching it are intelligent enough to know that I'm playing a character.

    • Terry Farrell: Acting in Treasure Quest, I was looking directly in the camera, and I had more fun because I chose to talk to my best friend. Sometimes it's easier working with people because you have the interaction. In the interactive game, you are assuming that people know what you are talking about without getting any response while you are acting.
