4910. Where would you be without friends? The people to pick you up when you need lifting?

Nothing. – Jennifer Aniston

4911. I’ve gone for each type: the rough guy; the nerdy, sweet, lovable guy; and the slick guy. I don’t really have a type. Men in general are a good thing. – Jennifer Aniston

4913. The best smell in the world is that man that you love. – Jennifer Aniston

4914. I had an idea of what I thought was funny. It’s kind of based on how I am. – Jennifer Aniston

4915. I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, ‘Don’t you want to have a normal job and a normal family?’ I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act. – Jennifer Aniston

4916. If somebody ever wished to be me for a day, they’d be the most pissed-off person once they got here. They would be, like, in hell. – Jennifer Aniston
