NOTES

Broderick was the original choice to play Alex Keaton on the TV series "Family Ties," but bowed out because he did not want to leave New York where his father, actor James Broderick, was dying of cancer. Michael J. Fox was cast in the part instead.

"I think one nice thing about it is ... it sounds unromantic, and I don't mean it to ... it defines things, because you make a contract, a commitment, which is nice. But I can't say I feel differently because I'm married."---Broderick on getting married to E! Online

"When I used to audition, when you got a part, generally that meant the director liked what you were bringing. When you're a little more successful, you find yourself having lunch or dinner and then picking a costume with the director and then coming on a set and starting."---Broderick to Interview April 2000

"I think I liked him because he reminded me of the things that my mom talked about, about men when she used to read "The New Yorker." He was really smart and he's from this really wonderful family and he was raised in the west village in New York and he's the funniest person I've ever known, continues to be the funniest person I've ever known. And you know, he's got this really beautiful face and I just -- and we didn't date for quite a while. We didn't date for another few months, but I liked him immediately. He reminded me of memories I didn't have.---Sarah Jessica Parker on her husband to Larry king CNN February 25, 2004
