"If it puts little plastic guitars into kids' hands and fires their imaginations, I think that's a good thing. It's harmless fun, innit.

"I'll never forget watching a woman lose her mind in a subway station because the train was delayed. I vowed that I would never let myself become that woman. I think it only took a year before I was swearing violently at the empty tracks." Kristen Schaal [Gothamist]

"I do have a dream about winning [for best series] in Season 10 after losing nine seasons in a row." Doug Ellin threatens us with six more seasons of Entourage [LAT]

"When we began, I assumed it'd take a miracle. There's not a huge talent pool of 18-year-olds who look 13 and Middle Eastern who can carry a movie. I just assumed we'd have to scour the globe (but) Summer was living in Pasadena!" Alan Ball on casting the role of Jasira in Towelhead [Reuters]
