Where do you think this strength comes from, Olivia? Well, you think it’s because I can’t fight for myself, and I can only fight for other people.Actually, Olivia, I think you’ve been fighting for yourself for a very long time. When you were a little girl, you saw your mother drinking, falling apart. You realized your father hurt your mother. She was damaged. You were defenseless then. You’re not now.
What a wonderful time for women on television. All the women I’m nominated with here tonight is such a testament to that. But truly this belongs to Robert and Michelle King and all our writers who never cease to amaze me with 22 episodes a year. And I have to thank our gorgeous cast, you are spectacular. Christine Baranski, you are a beacon of light to all of us. And Josh Charles, I miss you every day. What were you thinking?! I just want to say a big thank you to Jim McKay, who directed the episode that I submitted with such clarity. And to the two best things that ever happened to me: Keith and Kieran, best part of my day is coming home to you. I love you. Thank you.
" What does a man do? A man provides for his family. When you have children, you always have family. They will always be your priority, your responsibility. A man provides, and he does it even when he’s not appreciated… or respected… or even loved. He simply bears up, and he does it… because he’s a man."
