|"The shows I was on were all about serving the star's egos. I had this free-floating rage. It's factory work. I had no emotional connection with what I was writing." – Ball on his television career to The Los Angeles Times, Sept. 12, 1999|
|"I didn't put the gay character in there because I wanted to have this guy on a soapbox. I put the gay character in there because that was one of the realities of the situation in the house I lived in, in Brooklyn. Also, from a purely practical storytelling point, if you have one of the characters gay and the other two straight, it's going to give you more interesting areas to go than if they're all three straight." – Ball on the ABC sitcom "Oh, Grow Up" to The Los Angeles Times, Sept. 22, 1999|
