"T-Bone is one of the finest actors it has ever been my pleasure to work with. Always professional yet always at ease and able to deliver the goods, T-Bone has a phenomenal talent at voicing animation. She truly is able to bring a character to life, and puts me as a voice director in the enviable position of not having to get a good take, but of having to pick the best one. It's a pleasure to get to work with such an inspired talent. And she brings cookies, which is always nice. Wow, I kinda feel like I cheated on my wife...”Shut up, shut up, SHUT UP

Tropes that apply to Tabitha St. Germain
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: A bit of one. Just take a look around her website.
- Covert Pervert: She's the one to point out double entendres in the MLP scripts, or so say her coworkers.
- Crazy Cat Lady: On her website she jokes there's a strong chance she'll become one. We can't confirm if she only has one cat.
- Cross-Dressing Voices: Like a lot of voice actresses she's done her share of voicing young boys, like Captain Flamingo. She also thought Derpy was a boy and based her voice on her neighbor's son.
- Large Ham: Best seen when Rarity goes into theatrics mode or when Luna breaks out the Royal Canterlot Voice.
- One of Us: She's a HUGE fan of Joss Whedon and particularly Firefly.
- Pigeonholed Voice Actor: Seemingly averted as there's a lot of variety in her roles. She may actively defy type casting as well; when she auditioned for Friendship is Magic she chose not to try out for Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy because the descriptions given for them reminded her of Minty and Wysteria respectively.
- Reclusive Artist: While she does have a blog and answers fan mail on her website, she only updates her website occasionally and she very rarely does interviews. For a long time there were only two interviews one could find online: An appearance on Trevor Devall's podcast back in 2008 and an interview on a random fashion website, however slowly but surely she's starting to come out of her shell starting with San Diego Comic Con 2012.
- Star-Making Role: Shana for Anime, Rarity for Western Animation.
- Talking To Herself: She commonly voices several characters in a show, so this tends to happen sooner or later.
- Team Mom: According to her co-workers, she brings cookies for them to the recording sessions.
- Woman of a Thousand Voices: She has quite a range and often voices multiple characters in a show. In Martha Speaks for example she voices several minor characters as well as Martha herself, from an 18 month old baby to an 80 year old woman. She's also voiced over 15 different characters across two and a half generations of My Little Pony.
