Jim, Peggy and Suzanne have all been there longer, except for when they were "killed off" for a few months. They are still working off of those same contracts though, so that's why they are still ahead of Ali in the credits. And, Suzanne was only gone for that one year due to her myasthenia gravis. She'll be with the show 40 years this August, minus her one year of medical leave.

One thing they will concede is that I'm the only one there who has been there for every single scene of the same character for over 20 years, so I do have a certain place to stand on to have that conversation.
WHAT? I don't even know what she means by this. Do we not count "Stan"? Is she saying that Deidre and Drake's year and a half off means they haven't played consistent characters? Huh?
The reason she has input and no one else does has nothing to do with whatever bogus self-important reason she's making up here.
As always, I can't stand her interviews. I can't even imagine what it's like to work with her, given that it's so excruciating to read about a short conversation with her.
