I'm old-fashioned that way, but she was fine with it." ('Jake 2.0 Reunites Popular Stars' by Daniel R. Coleridge, TV Guide, 8 Oct 2003)
"I don't know if you can be ready for it [fame]. I don't want to expect too much, or too little, I'm just letting it happen." ('Multi-tasking Gorham takes demanding role' by Lynne McNamara, Canada.com, 12 Sep 2003)
