Quotes

Ellen DeGeneres: There are things that must be said! And I'm going to say them! For instance, do we really need a 1-800 number on the back of a shampoo bottle?
Ellen DeGeneres: That's right, I said it!
Ellen DeGeneres: [pretending to be reading the back of a shampoo bottle] Rinse and repeat, but how many times?
Ellen DeGeneres: The thing is, if you need to call the 800 number, you can't read anyway!The only thing more pathetic than someone having to call the 800 number on the back of a shampoo bottle is the person who works at the 800 number!

Anne Heche: please keep working
17 August 2000 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

Ellen DeGeneres seems like a very nice person. She may remind you of the most helpful woman at the food co-op or an extremely affable first-grade teacher. She is not, however, what we call real funny. Nor is she a very good joke-teller (her funny parenthetical asides are given GIANT CAPITAL LETTERS). Nor is she what we call especially interesting--her routine here resembles the attempts of a pleasant but not particularly bright person to make chitchatty conversation. Crunchy (but not gnarly) lesbians will have a warm smile. For everyone else, it's kind of like watching someone else's massage.
