    My mom deserves a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. If she has any conscience at all

    She was awesome in the HBO show "Getting On." So believable and so funny.

    No! "Paying attention" is not the same thing as love! Sociopaths pay attention!

    She drove the big rigs. That kinda life isn't for everyone. She's a bit of a loner, really.

    This is 100% me and my father as adults.
    Like, I know you, I disagree with you. Here's my point. Ok. That's your point. You're wrong, no, you're wrong
    This dresser looks awesome.

    Omgosh, my 23 yr old daughter and I shopped at Thrift Town in Sac all the time and this brought back so many memories! Cannot wait to see this. I'm going to wait until she comes home for a visit tho, so we can see it together. 🙂

    She totally gave him those eyes right after she came out of, "I tried just shaking your hand and giving you clear signal of that and you still went in for the hug and invaded my personal space. How did you not get the signal?" Like her eyes were like daggers at him right after she sat down.

    You see this sometimes with some of the women who come out with Stephen as he likes to hug very or sometimes kiss on the cheek the women who come out. He was always a flirt and I like to give him the benefit of the doubt and say it was just all in good fun but I think in the climate of today he should just stick to handshakes with everyone. Especially those who clearly offer only a hand.

    I love that her elder daughter plays Sheldon's mom on Young Sheldon. Perfect casting!

    She's about to go back to Broadway in Three Tall Women, with Glenda Jackson and Alison Pill. I won't miss that one. What a cast!

    I know Stephen Colbert lost his mother. But I don't think that weird reaction at 3:03 was about that. It was as if he completely tuned out and entirely missed what Laurie said. I wonder if a producer has said something in his earpiece? He appears to adjust it. I don't think he actually heard what Laurie said at all. Quite an awkward interview and very unlike Stephen Colbert. He seemed very distracted. Laurie Metcalfe saved it because she's naturally brilliant, likeable and articulate.

    Many people believe that the New Roseanne is a Pro-Trump show…it's not, they're in for a big surprise.

    She's the best thing about this bland, boring & cheap movie.

    I had no idea she was from where I grew up. I knew I always liked her for a reason!

    Its a shame that Stephen doesn't know how to pronounce Saoirse's name… Its Saoirse like Inertia, as she likes to say… He said Sershone initially… I think someone in his ear told him how to pronounce it again lol

    Judging by the video clip,Lady Bird isn't a story about LBJ's wife . Shows you what I know

    I know she's a great actress with many roles under her belt but Laurie Metcalf as Sheldon's mother = priceless
