  • Quotes

    • Liz: Excuse me, Mr. 'Wine-er-slav'—
      Jeffrey Winerslav: It's pronounced, "Weinerslave".

    • Kenneth: I just don't trust Mr. Hornberger, sir. He has a ridge on the section of the skull associated with deviousness.

    • Jack: You're dating one of the dancers?
      Kenneth: Oh, no, sir. I actually haven't spoken to her yet, but I have a long term plan to marry her, and I wanted the company to be aware of my intentions.
      Jack: I see. I'll be sure to mention that at the next board meeting.

    • Jenna: I'm prepared to do a nipple slip if you need it.

    • Jack: Jenna's dead.
      Pete: I don't feel anything. What's wrong with me?
      Jack: Oh, no, it's a marketing ploy for her new movie. But it means you won't have her for the show on Friday. And you need to put together some sort of on-air tribute.
      Pete: We actually already have an obituary reel for Jenna. We put it together after she cheated on that mobster.

    • Jack: Lemon, you know you're supposed to go home after your pervert seminars.

    • Jack: Jenna, I need to speak with you.
      Jenna: Jack, I did not hit that Asian page. I was just swinging my arm, and she walked into me—twice.

    • Jack: You being dead is the best thing that ever happened to this movie. Jenna, I wanna Tupac you.
      Jenna: Fine, but I have to pee first!
      Jack: No. No, no, no, no. Tupac Shakur, the rapper. He sold ten times more albums when he was dead than when he was alive; that's what we're going to do with this movie.

    • Liz: We have a show tonight. I've never missed a show. Not even the time I had that virus they kept saying only raccoons get.

    • Frank: Has anyone looked at this sexual harassment stuff they gave us?
      Tracy: I don't need to read it; the whole thing is loosely based on an evening I spent with Isiah Thomas.

    • Liz: Before I go, could I at least find out what Frank's hat says.
      Jack: "Constant Craving."
      Liz: He could do better!

    • Jenna: Do you need a sex tape released? 'Cause I got a weird one; it's night vision and you can see that his buddy is robbing me.
      Jack: No, Jenna, I want you on the PR warpath. If there's a red carpet, I want you on it talking up the movie, starting Monday.
      Jenna: The Kid's Choice Awards? Fine, I'll set aside my feud with Raven-Symoné for one day, but she knows what she did.

    • Jack: Jenna, Sheinhardt-Universal does not want to release the picture.
      Jenna: And how will that affect my Oscar chances?
      Jack: Adversely.

    • Kenneth: Ms. Lemon, you're not supposed to be here; you're on s-e-x probation.
