    "I had never tried consciously to make anyone laugh before, I was 8 years old. I think that was a small catalyst. The big catalyst was seeing my sister, when I was 11, doing a dramatic recital. When I saw her on the stage and everyone listening to her so patiently, quietly, that's all I wanted: for someone to look at me and listen to me, but in some beautiful and artistic way."— 2005 Newsweek interview
  25. Thanks for the laughter and the memories. 💔
