Monica Potter Quotes
"There's reality shows and things like that and I think 'Parenthood''s kind of a throwback to what we used to have back in the '70s, '80s and '90s. People want to see this again, and I feel like it's just a solid, good show."

"If something strikes me as really funny, very intriguing or really touching, then I just go and do it. It`s never about managing my career in a way that this would be a good move. I have enough people telling me what to do, so I think that when I read something, if I admire the writing and who`s directing it, I just go for it."
