NOTES

"I'm not Meryl Streep. I'm a pretty girl with a funny voice. It's an odd combination, but that's the package." --Fran Drescher to USA Today, November 2, 1993.

"With characters I've done in the past, I've almost always rewritten my dialogue so that it isn't abrasive. Very often I'm doing roles that were written by a man who tends to write a mean-spirited character because he's working something through with his 'muhthuh'...If all my characters end up being from one region of the globe, I'm not 'bittuh' about it. That's fine, because just within New York there is probably unfolding every human conflict you can imagine." --Drescher quoted in Entertainment Weekly, November 5, 1993.

"A beautiful babe with a voice like this is rare. I'm funny even when I'm not telling a joke." --Drescher, quoted in Us, November 1995.

in addition to being partners in the production company High School Sweethearts, Drescher and Jacobson launched Loaf and Kisses Gourmet Croutons in 1988.

In 1996, a talking "Nanny" doll went on sale.

Drescher's Pomeranian, Chester, has appeared with her in "The Nanny" and "Cadillac Man."
