Quotable Quotes:

"Damnit Andy, keep your mitts to yourself."

"[speaking in the 1970s] I had played Aunt Bee for ten years and it's very, very difficult for an actress or actor to create a role and be so identified that you as a person no longer exist and all the recognition you get is for a part that's created on screen." (IMDB)

"I dream, I test my dreams against my beliefs, I dare to take risks, and I execute my vision to make those dreams come true."
