List of Michael Emerson quotes.

It worries me a little bit the reach and power of TV. More people saw me in "The Practice" (1997) than will ever see me in all the stage plays I ever do. Which is sort of humbling. Or troubling. Or both.


(about doing Unfaithful (2002)) You work four days, and then one line is left when you see it. Demoralizing.


I've had the blessing of doing classic plays on Broadway, which was one of my great dreams forever.
