NOTES

"It's just beginning to come out in the press that I don't watch TV. With my network [CBS] in terrible straits, I'm not sure announcing that is the best thing I can do." --Christine Baranski quoted in US, December 1995,

"I have a career, a spouse to attend to, children I want to raise to be fabulous people. But 20 years from now, I want to reread my favorite novel, "Portrait of a Lady", in my house while my grandchildren play. And I want to know that though I've been to the party and had a very good time, I can now retreat from worldly things--not take them so seriously, you know?" --Baranski to US, December 1995.

"For years I'd held out against doing network TV. But it had become clear I couldn't make much money in theater. I'd given up work for a year waiting for 'Nick and Nora' and been burned. I was around a long time doing challenging work, and when I was doing 'Lips Together' [a 1991 play Terrence McNally wrote with her in mind] my character never stopped talking and I came home with less than $300 a week.

And here I sit two-and-a-hlaf years later, and my daughters' entire college education is paid for." --Baranski quoted in Newsday, March 20, 1997.

"I've been doing more and more singing because it's my theory that it may get harder for actresses to age in front of a camera and to maintain their stellar presence. But if you can sing in a nightclub, the older you are, the more textured your artistry. So I intend to put together a cabaret act." --Baranski quoted in Newsday, August 12, 1999.
