|"If you interview people or friends who work with me, they would say I'm private or internal or don't emote a lot. Yet I do it every day for 10 million people. I just don't do it for the 30 people I'm in the room with . . .
"One thing I know I do now is that when I'm writing anything--if it's not in the front of my mind, then it's in the back of my mind--it's that my children will see it, my grandchildren will see it. If they ever ask me, 'Why did you write that?' I'll have an answer, and it won't be because I thought a lot of people would watch or that it was because I thought the networks would program it. That makes you a more resonsible producer." --David E Kelley quoted in Los Angeles Times Magazine, November 30, 1997.
|"The ideal time for writing a script is four days, though sometimes it has to be two or three days depending on the deadline. If it's two days, sometimes there are things I see that don't work as well. If I have two weeks, the scripts get kind of flabby and lack the adrenaline that a sense of deadline fills you with ...
"I never even in college thought writing was something I intended to do. I guess I probably had characters in my head as a kid but never thought I'd put them into prime time," --Kelley quoted in The New York Times, March 2, 1998.
|"You know, he's like an idiot savant. I don't know if he could do anything else. It's like, can you understand how someone can drop a box of toothpicks and count how many there are? You can't. You'll never understand that. Well, that's like David Kelley. He's got a bunch of words all over the floor, and before you know it, there's just a script. He's just phenomenal that way. I can't figure it out. It hurts my brain when I try and figure out how he does what he does. I have read a lot of movies-of-the-week, for possible hiatus work, and a lot of them were legal dramas. But it's ridiculous to even consider doing another legal drama when you have David Kelley writing for you every week." --Camryn Manheim (of "The Practice") to Don Aucoin of The Boston Globe, April 11, 1999.|
|"He trusts himself creatively. He has pure talent, he has craft, and he has clearly found a way to tap into his imagination that doesn't take a lot of time. When you add to that a tremendous work ethic, that's a hell of a package." --Kelley's mentor Steven Bochco to Joel Stein in Time, May 31, 1999.|
|"David's only weakness as a writer is his unwillingness or his inability to let other writers into the process. He has such a clear idea of what he wants that it's just easier for him to do it than to guide someone else." --Bochco quoted in Los Angeles Times, November 30, 1997.|
