"In a way, I'm burdened because my parents are both people who didn't construct their values in accordance with society's definition of success. I never felt any pressure to be a success in the eyes of the world. It drives me crazy sometimes because I think I might be a lot farther--richer more famous--if I had ... The things ... I value. They don't have anything to do with making the most money or being on the cover of a magazine. They have to do with integrity and treating other people with respect--other human beings, I don't care who they are. I believe in the basic respect for human life, and that to me is more important than anything." --McGovern quoted by Michael Kilian in The Chicago Tribune Magazine, March 18, 1990.

"I think a lot of the best comedy today can be found on television. The networks aren't afraid to cater to a sophisticated, adult audience. I wanted to be connected to a show that is meaningful and special ... The cornerstone of humor in this show ("If Not For You") is human psychology." --McGovern quoted in a press release on the premiere of her 1995 series.
