“It’s like when you spend time with a 3-year-old, you quickly find out that one question just begets another — there’s a ‘why’ in the wake of every ‘why’ — and the only way to end the conversation is to say, ‘Oh look, a Chuck E. Cheese!’ The show is doing its best to say, ‘Oh look, Chuck E. Cheese!’ For example, we’ve now given the viewers as much as we’re willing to say about the numbers, and we’re moving on.” Lost co-executive producer Damon Lindelof [Wired]

“He was injured every night. Every night he went to the emergency room. The guns, the pins that don’t have grips on them, he’s pulling and sliced open his hand. Another time, he was doing a scene running in tunnels. He didn’t fall or anything, but he’s like, ‘I just destroyed my ankle.’ So he’s icing it, directing, acting, going to the emergency room at night, rewriting after he gets back from the emergency room. He’s a stud.” —Charisma Carpenter on working with Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables [PopWatch/EW]

“I’ve had an insatiable curiosity all my life, so Google is the best thing to happen to me. I know everything now. I typed ‘Michael Caine films’ into Google and there were several I looked up that were so bloody awful. The worst was probably The Swarm.” —Michael Caine [Daily Express UK]

“I’m just putting the finishing touches on my TV show, Children’s Hospital, which is going to premiere on Adult Swim in July. … [I]t’s kind of like Grey’s Anatomy in that it’s about really beautiful, inappropriate doctors boning each other at work. But in this case, you know, work is a children’s hospital. … [W]e have a great cast. Megan Mullally, Henry Winkler, Lake Bell, Erinn Hayes, Rob Huebel, Ken Marino, David Wain, who also produced it with me. Who else? We’ve got a bunch of great guest stars: we’ve got Jeff Ross, Ed Begley Jr. Ernie Hudson, Adam Scott, Matt Walsh — a lot of really great people.” —Rob Corddry [HuffPo]

“It’s a wonderful number. We had a blast. It’s rock and roll. … And I just got a whole new knee, so I can promise you everything is moving!” —Liza Minnelli on her musical performance in Sex and the City 2 [Us]

“Jim’s [Cameron] raised the bar and I’ve got to jump to it. He’s not going to get away with it. … The [Alien prequel] will be really tough, really nasty. It’s the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would actually go in and clean up a planet?” —Ridley Scott [Screen Daily via NME]

“My book [Class With the Countess] is about my journey in life and how I learned to be elegant. I translated that into song, so I talk about how money can’t buy you class, but elegance can be learned. I have fun with it. It’s a very Holly Golightly, runway, glamour-puss kind of song.” —The Real Housewives’ LuAnn de Lesseps on her first dance single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class [People]

“I mean, yeah, we get it. It’s funny … seeing two clowns rapping about space and shit, while floatin’ around in an orgy of screen savers. And SNL’s parody was off the hook hilarious. But when you step back and really look at all the genuine hate it got from everyday people, it’s hard to believe that so few got it. Yes, most of the miracles we mention can easily be explained away by science, that’s why we say the line ‘fuck scientists.’ Their factual findings sometimes explain away the Earth’s cool mysteries.
