  • Quotes

    • Teryl Rothery: I can't remember a time I wasn't performing.

    • Teryl Rothery: I'm so not like ["Stargate SG-1" (1997) character Dr. Janet] Fraiser. She's so controlled and contained. I'm nuts! I'm full of energy! I'm always going. I try to slow it down by doing yoga, but I end up the loudest one in the class. I'm always active, roller blading and taking dance classes

    • (On the idea of an on-screen romance on "Stargate SG-1" (1997))
      Teryl Rothery: The fans always want to link you up romantically. The British fans always want to link me up with Dr. Daniel Jackson, and another group of fans want to link me up with Jack O'Neill. I would hate to see any kind of love interest among the team. I think if there was something like that it would be better coming from someone off the base

    • (Her ideal storyline on "Stargate SG-1" (1997))
      Teryl Rothery: I'd wish for a romantic story, where my character finally gets to conquer the male guest star. Now look at this show: Jack and Daniel always get some women, and also Sam gets her choice. And what does Dr. Fraiser get? A stethoscope.

    • Teryl Rothery: If they'd handed over the command over [Stargate] SG-1 to Amanda [Tapping] and me, we'd definitely soon have a pure comedy show, no, I don't think we'd manage to get anything serious going because we'd been joking non-stop!

I Love LucyCarroll O'Connor and Lucille Ball were two of the finest... they are truly missed.
