- "I'd just taken a tab of acid - my first and last tab of acid, I can assure you - and was heading off into the fields and thinking, 'I'm not quite sure what's going to happen next'. And then, you know, the acid hit shortly after that and it was terrifying." She asked Ross: "I don't know if you've ever taken acid?" When he said he had not, she continued: "Well don't. I mean, I don't know how people can take it time after time."
- "I had the most wonderful time on it - it was wonderful, partly because my good friend came up to me just as the world was refracting and said, 'Don't worry Hel, it's gonna be fine. Just let go and enjoy it and it'll be fine,' and I did. He sort of saved me and I had a fantastic time. But it's too much, it's too much." Ross asked if the good part of the experience outweighed the bad. Dame Helen replied: "No actually, such a good time that I didn't want to do it again. I thought, 'That was great, that was wonderful.' But it was very, very extreme and, you know, you could see the danger in it." -- http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-483366/Dame-Helen-reveals-wonderful-terrifying-extremes-LSD-trip.html
