I'm the one who said, "The only hit that comes out of a Helen Lawson show is Helen Lawson, and that's ME, baby, remember?"
A few other gems that have been attributed to me:
"Tell that son of a bitch to get off his butt and earn his oats!"--you can use this in almost any situation with anyone. A very versatile statement.
"I think I'll sit this one out." A nice little phrase when you need to make a graceful exit.
"You should know, honey, didn't you just come out of the nuthouse?" When someone call you or someone else crazy, this is a great response. It only works if they've just been in rehab or a sanitarium, which in Hollywood, you have a 50/50 shot.
"Look, they drummed you right out of Hollywood, so, you come crawlin' back to Broad'way. But Broadway doesn't go for boooze and dope." Of limited use in the real world, but a killer line to lay on someone nonetheless if appropriate.
"You get outta my way, I got a guy waitin' for me." A great exit line no matter what the circumstance. One of my very, very best.
