    • Brendon: (about pitching his new show, Metalocalypse) We're treating the marketing of this show like you would a band, it's like we're a band with a record deal all of a sudden. I want to try and get a five-song EP put out.

    • Brendon: (discussing Home Movies) Our show never got good ratings at all; while we were in production, I didn't think anyone was watching it at all. I knew some people were watching it; but it was one of those shows that you really have to learn how to watch. I love subtle humor and Home Movies was a great place to have subtlety.
