Episode Quotes
Lauren Graham: Why did you cut my sketch?
Matt: It wasn’t funny
Lauren Graham: I thought it was funny.
Matt: I thought the writing was funny, but that you weren’t very good.
Lauren Graham: Really? Because I thought the writing was one unbearably long set up for a jingle.
Matt: And that’s why I cut the sketch, you were in a number of wonderful sketches tonight, including a hilarious send-up of your character on Calico Gals.
Lauren Graham: Gilmore Girls
Danny: I wrote it down for you.

Willy: Jeannie, you were 15 seconds long on Comedia, we had to steal it from News 60
Jeannie: I know, people laughed, I was as surprised as anybody
Willy: Try not to be funny; we’re doing a TV show
Jeannie: Got it.

(about the three girls Danny picked up for Matt)
Danny: Okay, so they didn't break the bank on their SATs.
Matt: How long ago did they take the SATs?

(about the studio while drunk)
Jordan: So, I’m hiding here tonight; this is like for me Superman’s dome of pleasure.
Cal: Fortress of solitude?
Jordan: Yes!
Cal: Well, enjoy yourself.
Jordan: I believe I will.
