I could never leave Las Vegas. I can't really afford New York or Los Angeles. I love this town. We don't have that much. We have the Runnin' Rebels and boxer Floyd Mayweather. When Mayweather fights, it's good for the whole city. It's like the Super Bowl out here.
The great thing about a name like 'Cougar Town' is that you hear it once and you remember it forever. It's a very 'loud' title. But there's a connection to the word 'cougar' that means a lot of people are going to be turned off right away by the title alone without even giving the show a chance.
I've come to realize how much it really was a part of my upbringing, the Georgia part. We were away from town. It was just dirt and trees and spouses. And a lot of kids - my cousins, who were all like brothers and sisters to me - just a lot of kids at one time.
Casper Wyo., population 18,000 when I was born, was large enough to hold the surprises of civilization, but small enough that the prairie was close by - for some in our town, right out the front door - stretching on forever, under the great curving sky.
'Grey's Anatomy' has given me a lot of security, especially as my kids have grown older. Plus, for the last eight years, I didn't have to get on a plane and go to do a job out of town or in another part of the world.
If I had grown up in any place but New Orleans, I don't think my career would have taken off. I wouldn't have heard the music that was around this town. There was so much going on when I was a kid.
Tulsa was the kind of place where you could go to any door and borrow a cup of sugar. Everybody knew everybody. Truthfully, I don't even remember dealing with any racism in our town; we all got along.
I grew up in Alice, Texas, a small oil town with one theater that only showed Roy Rogers movies. So when I got the role, I had never even seen a Bond film and had only had a vague notion about the idea of a Bond girl.
So many girls come up and say to me, 'I have never listened to country music in my life. I didn't even know my town had a country-music station. Then I got your record, and now I'm obsessed.' That's the coolest compliment to me.
You know, Hollywood is a very interesting town - always has been, always will be.
Your white uniform as a black domestic was your ticket anywhere in town.
I literally integrated the small town of Libertyville, Illinois. I was the first person of color to reside within its borders.
People have kind of latched on with my personality and how I play golf and how I carry myself. It seems like every town we go to, I'm experiencing newer things with these types of fans.
I literally came to L.A. like every actor does from this little town with this big dream, and I'm living in it now. It's mind-blowing.
Hollywood can be a very stinging town. They say it's a forgiving business. It's not that forgiving.
As a kid, I would always shop for my back-to-school clothes at department stores. I lived in a small town, and department stores were all we had access to.
I come from a town of great musicians: Washington, D.C. It's no joke, that history.
I was at the first Minor Threat show, and you could tell, 'This band is going to be the king of the town.' It was obvious. They were so good.
I was very lucky to have had the opportunity to tour with the Beastie Boys and watched almost every set they played on all those dates. Why not? You do your set and then you get to see the Beasties play? Best deal in town.
Richard Burton came from the same town as me, so I thought I'd follow my nose, and follow my luck. I think I've been very lucky.
Know how to travel from your town to a nearby town without a car, either by bus or by rail.
Marilyn vos Savant

I grew up in a small town about 40 miles outside London, but it was a fairly cosmopolitan household.
I have a daughter and two grand-daughters and a great grandson in Africa, in Cape Town.
