"I've started a company, called Tall Girl Productions, and we've got our first project that is purely producing, not writing, with a writer named Evan Daugherty. It's for NBC, it's called 'Afterthought,' and it's science fiction-ish. That's fun."
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."Melissa Rosenberg on Albert Einstein
"Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men."Melissa Rosenberg on Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Science investigates religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power religion gives man wisdom which is control."Melissa Rosenberg on Martin Luther King, Jr.
"No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right a single experiment can prove me wrong."Melissa Rosenberg on Albert Einstein
"Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss."Melissa Rosenberg on Ralph Waldo Emerson
"With 'Twilight,' you have these massive tomes that you have to condense. With 'Penoza,' we had an eight episode Dutch series that, just for the pilot alone, I condensed three episodes. So, there's a lot of filling in and a ton of invention that has to happen to fill out eight episodes."
"One must never assume that a character is sympathetic because of either the actor playing them or the fact that they're a lead. I think that's a recipe for failure, actually, because if they become unsympathetic, you lose your audience."
"Studios, because they are investing a great deal of money in movies, they want a guarantee that when they hire somebody that person can deliver for them. Everything is fear based, so they pigeonhole people. But I've written everything, from Westerns to sci-fi to dramedy, I've done it all."
"I love Charlie, Billy Burke's character. Writing for him is so spectacular, he's so funny and wry and every scene he's in he just takes. There's a scene in 'Eclipse' where Bella tells him she's a virgin, and it's the funniest, most awkward scene I've ever seen on film."
"You don't know what someone's going to walk away from a movie with, but you hope it's something positive, but if nothing, you want them most basically to be entertained and engaged. That's your job. But you also hope to give them something to chew on or maybe some insight into the human existence, you hope a little bit. Not to sound too lofty."
