"Try to keep your mind open to possibilities and your mouth closed on matters that you don't know about. Limit your 'always' and your 'nevers.' Continue to share your heart with people even if it has been broken. Don't treat your heart like an action figure wrapped in plastic and never used." ~ Amy Poehler

"I’ve met a lot of my closest friends after I turned 30, and Rashida’s certainly one of them. It’s so nice to be able to find a like-minded person who you really admire. And who’s your homie." - Amy Poehler x
“She’s just so cool. Like beyond being funny, she’s just like honestly the coolest person I know… We’re really good friends and we have this little support system. We’re like chosen sisters… Amy and I were best friends for a long time before the show. So we get to go to work together every day and we hang out on the weekends. Like we actually do talk and text each other all the time.” - Rashida Jones x
“Aubrey always makes surprising choices. She took the character of April and made her this multi-dimensional person. Scary and soft. And always hilarious. Unlike April, she is really open and light and a secret goofball. Plus, she’s part witch, so she can turn you into dust. Watch what you say about her.” - Amy Poehler x
“[Amy]’s already kind of my girlfriend, and I’m not saying that in a jokey way. We had a moment last year, late at night, when we decided we were gonna end up together. For now, we have to let boys come and go, but we’re kind of in love.” - Aubrey Plaza x
My friend yesterday was like “You have a really interesting style. It’s like a mixture between Johnny Depp and Ellen Degeneres.” I’m like pirate chic.

Oh, Amy. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
For one, she can make a feminist argument zing like a “Weekend Update” punchline, a skill she demonstrated as a recent guest on The Approval Matrix, the Sundance Network’s new panel show. During her interview, Poehler was asked about modern men and the difficult challenges men face.
"I brought Amy out here because we’re about to introduce Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, our next two presenters and it’s a big deal to introduce them. So because of that, we wanted to make sure we gave them the best possible introduction so we wrote a bunch of them and if you don’t mind, we’re just going to read through them now."
