"I don't do marriage. I think it's incredibly naff. And I don't like vulgar displays of ostentation."
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."Jenny Eclair on Mignon McLaughlin
"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."Jenny Eclair on Socrates
"It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."Jenny Eclair on Friedrich Nietzsche
"How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being."Jenny Eclair on Oscar Wilde

"After graduating from flares and platforms in the early 1970s, I started drama school wearing a pair of khaki dungarees with one of my Dad's Army shirts, accessorised by a cat's basket doubling as a handbag. Very Lady Gaga."
"I've just got crap hair. Although I inherited a lot of stuff from my dad, including giant knees, I didn't get his good, thick hair. I got my mother's thin, wispy, non-event hair instead."
"I think I might actually die of showing off. It'll be on my headstone - 'Cause of Death: Showing Off.'"
"I'm very jealous of my daughter's education. She's been inspired by her teachers, and nobody inspired me as a teenager."
"I have a fear of poverty in old age. I have this vision of myself living in a skip and eating cat food. It's because I'm freelance, and I've never had a proper job. I don't have a pension, and my savings are dwindling. I always thought someone would just come along and look after me."
