The most charming Alex Borstein quotes to discover and learn by heart

Never try to fit a target audience. Write what is true to the characters in their settings and the audience will find you.
I have always been a HUGE Star Wars fan since I was like 5 years old.
Most of us in the writers room at Family Guy were big nerds growing up and could recite almost any scene from Star Wars.
I don't do sketch anymore and sometimes I miss it.
But I think what I really miss is that time in my life, it was kind of like college. No kids, no real responsibilities, just comedy, food and late nights.
I think this [Feels like Christmas] is one of the greatest, most unsung albums ever. It's Cyndi Lauper, and it's called Hat Full Of Stars. She's so underrated.

As do the people who watch the shows. All targets are moving.
The writing is amazing because having a hand in creating what you're going to be performing... there's nothing like it. It's always going to be better suited for you. You're always going to know the lines faster, because you wrote it. The writing is so very hard. It's the hardest part of the whole process. In some ways the acting is a lot easier and a lot more fun.

Usually, impersonations come out of something you dig, because you're listening to it over and over. And you kind of start developing... You're really trying to emulate them, then you realize, 'I sound ridiculous doing this. Oh, hey, maybe this is a funny impersonation.'
I am a fan of whatever makes me laugh my ass off.
If it happens to be a Jew joke, then it's a Jew joke.
Guys can look like pigs. The girl always has to be a looker. Look at most TV shows: According To Jim - pig and a looker. Still Standing - pig and a looker. Ralph Kramden [on The Honeymooners] - pig and a looker. Family Guy - pig and a looker. It's a theme.
I got my degree in rhetoric.
I'm still auditioning and doing other movie parts, but I really like the developing and the writing. You have more control over your destiny.
I think I was born because my parents had two boys and wanted to give it one more go and try for a girl... they got me instead.
