"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."Archie Panjabi 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."Archie Panjabi on Socrates
"It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."Archie Panjabi 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."Archie Panjabi on Oscar Wilde

"I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an actor. I never even thought about other careers. The acting field is certainly not the path many Indian parents encourage their children to take, but mine were very supportive.

"I don't ever want to be hugely famous because I had a little taste of it after 'East Is East' and 'Bend It.'"
"I like to cook Indian food when I can. I find the process of creating a home-cooked meal to be unwinding."
"When I was younger I was fat. I was never conscious of it and was content with who I was because I was so loved. My mother never told me to lose weight and my father doted on me, but my agent told me. I tried, but I loved Indian food too much."
"I'd love to do a romantic comedy. And perhaps, if the character was right and I had a good gut instinct, a Bollywood movie. And I'd love to direct. One day. I'm learning a lot on the set of 'The Good Wife.'"
