“Comedy is hard work. People expect you to be funny 24/7. So if you're not constantly cracking up your friends, it can hurt you professionally. They may not read your book or come to your show. 'She's a comedian? She's not that funny!' It's unfair 'cause when cardio surgeon friends say they cut chests open and hold hearts in their hands, everyone just takes their word for it.”
Judy Balan

“Opposites attract but only to torture each other.”
Judy Balan, Sophie Says

“Modern-Day Parenting is no joke. For starters, no one takes you seriously unless you have a fancy parenting style.
Tiger Mom, Helicopter Mom, Organic Mom and on and on.
I've decided to go with L-Board Mom. I may look like I don't know what I'm doing but you want to keep safe distance 'cause you know I can hurt you and get away with it.”
Judy Balan

“Opposites attract but only to torture each other.”

“Whoever took that theory about magnets and started applying it to people, needs to have his posterior kicked!”
Judy Balan, Sophie Says

“I am a Tamilian by geographical disposition and a Roman Catholic by faith. A very unfortunate combination, if you ask me. Because not only did I get stuck with a name like Sophia Thilagam, I was also frequently subject to the aesthetically disturbing sight of crimson red, Kanjeevaram silk sarees with loud, gold borders worn with Colgate-white veils and equally unsubtle tiaras to match. The Tamil Catholic wedding, of course.”
Judy Balan, Sophie Says

“They are easy enough to recognize. They are the ones who say things like 'You love me, you just don't know it yet.”
Judy Balan, Sophie Says

“I don't get it. Why would you want to endure someone who squeezes the toothpaste the wrong way and deprives you of a simple pleasure every morning?”
Judy Balan, Sophie Says
