Spader: Friends of mine are comedians and they all - that's all they do is explore the dark side of life. *laughs* Like, for instance, we've got some very, very funny writers on the show who are very comedic. Well, in person and in the course of every day, it's always sort of dark and gloomy. *laughs*

Spader: Bill and I have a couple of love scenes coming up. Very loving scenes. They're not really love scenes. They're just - it's, it's more... they're not really love scenes. They're bed scenes.
Regis: BED SCENES!
Spader: A couple of them coming up this season. It's a very exciting season. We're trying all sorts of new things.

Spader on The Cat in the Hat
Spader:*about David Kelley* "There's a burden he has in this past year and will have again next year that he didn't have in The Practice. David Kelley - who is the writer and creator of both The Practice and then this show, Boston Legal - he said to me that he conceived of this character of Alan Shore like the Cat in the Hat. Come in, make a mess. Get out before he gets in too much trouble. And now there's a show that he's in the center - and so he has the burden now to sort of carry a dramatic responsibility as well. He has to - he can't just wreck the place and then run away as quickly as his - you know."
