Personal Quote:

Well, all the guys want to have sex with me all the time. Every day I come to work it's nonstop sexual harassment. They had to have some people from General Electric come down and talk to us about it. There's a lawsuit that's about to happen. But other than that, it's been great. - on being one of only 2 female writers on a staff of 14 for The Office (2005) See more »
