On cursing on "Veep":
"Once, when we were trying to come up with the particular perfect, horrible, swear-y thing to say in 'Veep,' I said, 'You do realize that if we were 12, we would get in big trouble for this conversation.' That was not part of the curriculum in high school, and the fact that it is now a part of the curriculum of my life is a please, which is the understatement of the universe."
On being dubbed "The First Lady of Comedy":
"There is sexism [in comedy] - I'm not denying its existence. But I'm saying that I will deny its effort against me. I just pay it no nevermind and say, 'Get out of my way.'"
On dinning with Vice President Joe Biden:
"He loves to tell stories and I'm a good listener. I loved that dinner. There was no cynicism, just a very earnest jubilation about being there."
On her "billionaire" rumors:
"I've been attached to that. It's unbelievable, because whatever I do, people just assume it's true. Welcome to the f*ckin' Internet."
