Personal Quotes (3)

[on her favorite The Cosby Show (1984) episode of all-time with Bill Cosby]: Mr. Cosby and I, we had a competition going on to see who would do a better job at lip-syncing. That was our little inside thing. I think I did a better job.
[on Bill Cosby, who played Cliff Huxtable]: This is my return to prime-time television since The Cosby Show. There was no better foundation than to work with the talented cast with Mr. Cosby leading the way. I got my start with the best and learned the best from the beginning without picking up bad habits coming into the game and making sure I was on top of everything as it concerns my craft.
[on her personal life]: My parents and my family really tried to maintain as much of a normal environment as possible. When I went home it wasn't Keshia Knight Pulliam the actress, the glitz, the glamour. It was Keshia the daughter. Oldest of four children, who washed the dishes and did everything she was supposed to do.
