"When I first came to Hollywood I was offered the role of the 'bad' sister in a TV-movie, even though I really wanted to play the 'good' sister. But one of the producers sat me down and said, 'Honey, you haven't been here very long, have you? Let me explain something. I can get a good ingenue anywhere, but a good bitch is hard to find.' I never dreamed it was going to be my epitaph!" --Morgan Fairchild
"I love being on location and living out of suitcases. It makes it easier to concentrate on the part you're playing because there are no outside distractions, like the pipes bursting in your house." --Morgan Fairchild
"I'm so sick of clothes I could die--I'm sick of the work that goes into the clothes and the look and the image. But this how I know it matters: I was at the gym last week, and two guys came up to me--separately mind you--and told me they loved the red suit I was wearing in the title shots for 'The City'--and they were both straight! This tells me the work it takes to put it all together is worth the effort ... They're not paying me to play a charwoman. They're paying me to show up looking glam and, damn it, I'm gonna show up looking glam!" --Morgan Fairchild in TV Guide, January 13, 1996.
