Deadline interviewed Louis C.K. as part of their coverage leading up to the Emmy nominations’ announcement. They had him talk about the episodes he is submitting for consideration, including: “Pregnant”, “Subway/Pamela”, “Oh Louie/Tickets”, and “Duckling”. In doing so he addressed the whole Dane Cook thing for what should be the last time:
What I wrote for Dane and me on camera represents what each other feels about the situation. The only difference is that he’s not angry about it. Neither of us really care. Dane was generous in allowing me to take him to a place of anger and it was funny the way he did it. I don’t think he stole from me knowingly, which is what I said in the episode. I think he sort of got some of my jokes in his head and got sloppy. He’s a good guy and not capable of maleficence.
