NOTES

"I really feel all my adult life has been spent in that little black box. If a wonderful part on television came along I would do it. But I don't want to do a recurring role. It would just be my luck that the thing would be successful.

"I'm old enough now and also secure enough financially that I really only want to do what I want to do." --Beatrice Arthur in Los Angeles Times, October 8, 1995

"I've worked with people who, once they're told a show is comedy, it's like giving whiskey to the Indians. They just go berserk, they use a different voice. I'm not sure what I do; I just think of it as good acting." --Beatrice Arthur in InTheater, April 10, 1998
