Joan Van Ark's Quotes

  • [on why it's time for another Knots Landing (1979) reunion show] They want to see if we're in wheelchairs and walkers yet.
  • [When her series' star and best friend Michele Lee, who played Karen Fairgate MacKenzie, became a director on Knots Landing (1979)]: She just sort of picked, cause Michele has the director vibe in her, and she just picked some scenes that, you know, were just - not generic - but signature Knots kind of scenes, and I was just in awe of the work. I mean, there was one that I did see because I watched the first maybe fifteen minutes of the reunion, and there was a scene where I got married to Ben where Ted said, 'May I kiss the bride?'
  • [on a long-running prime-time soap opera]: What I'm surprised at this time around is how emotional it's been. And I'm getting all verklempt even now.
  • [on her religion]: I'm Presbyterian and I don't go to church very much.
  • When you're on a long running series, you reach a very rarefied, high oxygen area and after a while to keep a show on the air they have to make some very drastic changes.
