    • Jason Schwartzman: What I love about this show so much is like it's kind of a delicate infusion of life and fiction.

    • Ted Danson: There's not a mean bone or sarcastic bone in Jonathan Ames' body or in his writing. And there's such an innocence about him. At the same time, perverted, you know, but it's with this eager kind of smile of delving into these bizarre places.

    • Heather Burns: The chemistry between the characters is very charming.

    • Olivia Thirlby: The women are tolerant. All of them, of their male counterparts.

    • Jason Schwartzman: It's awesome to be a part of this show because everyday, I work with someone new.

    • John Hodgman: (on Ted Danson) I think I maybe shouldn't have opened our relationship by trying to stump him on Cheers trivia. Cheers is the popular US sitcom which aired for 11 seasons on NBC. Ted Danson (George Christopher) portrayed bar owner Sam Malone on that show.
