"Rachel Dratch is like this little cartoon, a tiny little animal with enormously large blue circular eyes that blink at you quizzically, asking, “Are you my mother?” She and Amy are both tiny, but their demeanors are incredibly different. They’re about the same height, they are itty-bitty- but Rachel has a very gentle, soft, lovely little heart. And Rachel is a crazy solid sketch performer. The Rachel that I know is a soft, gentle little soul, but there is this comedy Dratch that is a different thing. She’s just go a crazy skill set. She’s a highly intelligent person. I really, really loved doing Wake Up Wakefield! [a sketch about two middle school students who broadcast a morning announcement program to their classmates] with her. We would purposely writer scenes in which she could do a lot more looking and blinking. And she played this really shy little boy who you wanted to hold and rock- he was like the boy that is your best friend when you’re thirteen, and he’s probably not gay, but he could be. There is a little bit of heartbreak in her comedy."
"If you go to eat with Amy [Poehler], it’s like, ‘All right, let’s order. Does everybody know what they are going to get?’ She’s in charge, she’s the leader, she’s like, ‘We’re not wasting any time, let’s do this.’ And in the most living way I can say, she’s incredibly bossy. And I fucking love that about her. And I love the combination of the fact that she is a teeny tiny person and she’s really tough. I mean, she’s from Boston. And she has this very sort of aware East Coast way of looking at things. I think the term ‘blue-collar’ has been said by her many time in terms of like a way of looking at life- it’s like, ‘There are no free rides, I am going to fucking make my time on this earth.’"
