Quotes: "I get so bored! I had a treadmill... I gave it to my mom. I had a stairmaster... gone. I had a recumbent bike...I dont know where that is. So I hate exercise except for Pilates." - Courtney Cox
"A lot of my humor does come from anger. It's like, you're not gonna pull one over on me - which is pretty much my motto anyways." - Courtney Cox
"I'm not a huge fan of romantic comedimes - my taste goes much more to the offbeat and dark. I'd love to sink my teeth into something like 'Fargo'" - Courtney Cox
"I only have to do three things to look halfway decent, curl my eyelashes, fill in my eyebrows and put some lipstick on." - Courtney Cox
"I have to be physically attracted to someone. But I can't just be with someone just because it's great sex. Because orgasms don't last long enough." - Courtney Cox
"Honesty is the key to a relationship. If you can fake that, you're in." - Courtney Cox
"Before he moved in, David would say 'How are we ever going to meld together, because our tastes are so different? Maybe it's because we're truly in love that we can". - Courtney Cox on husband David Arquette
"It's so much fun for us. I have a new love for the show since I've gotten into this relationship. Honestly, I was a little bored the first four years. I had some fun things to do and some good relationships, but Monica was developing and I felt like there was a lot of straight man stuff. Now we have something really fun to play - two really neurotic people trying to have a relationship. They're both afraid to commit, to get married, or take these steps. I have a really good time playing with him [Matthew Perry]. It's kind of like our relationship in real life - except we don't kiss." - Courtney Cox about playing Monica and Chandler.
