Quotes

#Quote
1We hadn't worked together in four years. Soon as we looked into each other's eyes, it was right back there. So I've had a wonderful time. There's nothing I like better than doing a love story, and there's nothing better than doing a love story with Tony (Anthony Geary).
2It was great. We always work well together and we enjoy working together. Just the fact that we are together raises the bar in both of our minds. We both want to be on top of our game because we've got a lot to live up to. I know Tony feels that way and I feel that way. Fortunately for us, that chemistry was still there - which was a terrific relief to me! Apparently it's still very much alive for both of us. We're a good team.
3"Gloria [Monty] put sex and romance into Laura's life and it bowled me over. Here I was doing things in front of 20 million people that I had never done in my own life. It certainly speeded up my growth process." TV Guide August 26th 1980.
4That's what it's about for me now: my children and my husband, you know? That's the dream. And I got it - Intimate Portrait: Genie Francis (2001), November 2001.
5I think my career would have gone further had I not reacquainted myself with Laura. But I'm sure there's some reason why I needed to be here. This is like a huge family to me. It's been a great place to be, lots of love and support in this building. I'm very grateful for that.
  • SOD, May 2001
6"I can't really say a permanent goodbye to General Hospital (1963), because it's just too painful. I don't really know. There would have to be some kind of clarity about equality. There would have to be some resolution for me."
  • TV Guide, September 2002.
