Quotes of Elizabeth Montgomery

#Quote
1I was never bored on the set, not one minute for 8 years was I bored. Does that sound so disgustingly Pollyanna you can hardly stand it? Because it's not. It was like going to college for 8 years and taking an in depth course in what you really wanted to do. So it was very, very exciting for me, I mean I learned a lot of stuff, a lot.
2[when asked if it's hard to juggle working and raising kids] Yes it is, and as a result, I will never win any Mother of the Year awards, I hope I'm getting better. Everybody I think, parents and kids have to grow up together. Nobody can really ready you for motherhood whether you work or whether you don't. Parenting is probably the toughest job anybody's ever had, and I'm haven't been really good at it, but like I say, I think I've gotten better.
3[on her father's reaction to her wanting to be an actress] He told me 'If that's what you want to do, you're gonna really want to have to do it because there's no room out there for some gutless wonder wandering around, you know, there are too many talented people'. And he said it's one of the most horrifyingly, ego-blasting, destructive, awful, businesses that you can possibly get into, and he said 'I really wouldn't really wish it on anyone I care even a little bit about'. So knowing he cared more than a little bit about me, I thought 'Whoops, this is really tough a one'. However after that conversation, he did say to me that when it is rewarding and it is good, it is such a high you can't imagine it, and he's right.
4[commenting on Tabitha (1976), the spin-off of Bewitched (1964)] First of all, I didn't see the show, but I heard that she [Lisa Hartman] didn't twitch as well as I did. I kept getting mail from people were who outraged, saying, Where is Erin Murphy? What in the world (is going on)?! This woman is 25...this doesn't make any sense.' I was getting mail from people like it was my fault, although also saying, 'Thank God you didn't have anything to do with this.' They felt betrayed. I thought, 'How can you be betrayed by a TV show?' But they were irate. I got almost as much mail about that as I get about anything else. It was very funny...ranged from kids who hated it to grownups who said, 'This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.'
5Like most people, I secretly hope that it's true - that there are witches like Samantha, and that families like hers really do exist.
6The minute someone says, "Oh God, you could never do that; you can't get that kind of stuff on the air!" . . . that's the kind of stuff I want to do.

31She lost out on the part of Edie Doyle in On the Waterfront (1954) to Eva Marie Saint.

Although Montgomery was fine in her screen test, there was an air of finishing school about her. Kazan thought this genteel quality would not be becoming for Edie, who was raised on the waterfront in Hoboken, NJ. Despite qualms about 30-year old Saint playing a teen, she was cast in the part and won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar.
