    • (Wayne on Gilmore Girls) Marty: (to Rory) And you're still as beautiful as ever...
      (long pause)
      Rory: I think you should be over there with Lucy...
      (Marty walks up to Lucy and kisses her)

    • Wayne (About a movie coming out next year): Oh, Interivew, yeah. Steve Buscemi directed that, it was nice, I felt lucky to meet him. Steve plays a journalist for a newspaper and they send him on what he considers to be a bogus interview. Sienna Miller plays the soap-opera star that he gets sent to interview — he sees it as a little bit beneath him — so he goes and, to coin a phrase from The Real World, "It's what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real." (Laughs)

    • Wayne (His scoop to Marty's feelings towards Rory on Gilmore Girls): Well, I can't say for sure and just so you know, they run a tight ship over there, they're pretty secretive about their episodes, even with us. I can honestly say that I don't know, but what I've done so far… that awkwardness between them? It continues, it gets a little heated, which hopefully makes for good drama.

    • Wayne (When asked if he prefers the stage over TV, or the combination of both): I love the combination of both. Besides making me feel like a rock star, it makes me feel like a good actor. They're completely different mediums, they call for different skills.

    • Wayne (Tells us how he got the part of Marty on Gilmore Girls): It's interesting how I actually got the part. I read some scenes that were Dean and Rory scenes. I was waiting tables at the Mercer Kitchen in Soho and then Gilmore Girls producers/writers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino were staying at the Mercer Hotel. I served them breakfast, and they asked me if I was an actor. I gave them my agent's information and they ended up calling and put me on tape just to see what I could do, and they said, "We're writing this part for you, Marty." And I was like, "Wow, that's weird and great and fast and something completely unexpected." But the scenes that I read were Dean scenes, so they were thinking along that vein as well.
      (That's such a great story!)
      Wayne: I know, right? I'm so lucky!

    • Wayne (Describes Marty's character return to Gilmore Girls): Marty's kind of grown up. The thing I like about playing the character — especially what I've done with this season — is that he's a little cooler, a little hipper, he's got a girlfriend, he's relaxed. And he's not afraid to admit that he likes Rory, I guess. (So the feelings still there after all these years?)
      Wayne: I think so, yeah. (Laughs)

    • Wilcox (Did you know you'd be back eventually to Gilmore Girls, or was it a surprise to you?): Thank you to all of you. It was totally a surprise to me. I actually had dinner with Lauren (Graham) Sunday night. She was in town to the see the play Tennessee Williams Suddenly Last Summer — she's a friend of Carla Gugino's — and we know each other in passing, we worked together once the first year I was on the show. So she came backstage and gave me a big, big hug, and she said, "There was one woman, a writer on the show, who's responsible for bringing you back, and she was so excited because she thought you were such a cool character."
