  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Michael Ian Black: (deadpan) It's hard to believe that Annie Hall won the Best Picture of 1977 in the same year that Smokey and the Bandit came out. Where is the justice?

    • Michael Ian Black: (on Battle of the Network Stars) Enormous stars from the three television networks would compete in Olympic-type events, while simultaneously wearing short-shorts and tank tops.

    • Bil Dwyer: (on Shields and Yarnell) If somebody says, "What were the '70s like," you could say "mimes had a show."

    • Rachael Harris: (on "You Light Up My Life") Had I known she was singing about God, that would've creeped me out.

    • Hal Sparks: You always thought that any time "Bohemian Rhapsody" came on, it meant the DJ had diarrhea. He needed time.

    • Mo Rocca: Burt Reynolds was six Village People in one human being.

    • Stuart Scott: (on Saturday Night Fever) For people who were not New Yorkers, that movie created your impression of New York.

    • Joel Stein: (on What's Happening!!) The characters were great. These were people you wanted to spend exactly 22 minutes with, and no more.

    • Mo Rocca: I felt many things after watching Star Wars, chief among them that I wanted my own light saber.

    • Tom Arnold: (on ABBA) Their faces were really close, like they could just start making out at any time. That added a lot to it.

    • Michael Ian Black: The subtext of Wonder Woman was all, to me, about S&M. This is not a woman to trifle with. This is a woman that you pay $50 an hour for the privilege of kicking your ass.

    • Scott Ian: I was definitely in the closet when it came to ABBA. You had to keep certain things from the crowd of people you were hanging out with, so you wouldn't get beaten up.

    • Ellen Cleghorne: I did not watch Roots. I did not want to go to school mad and have to beat up some white folk. I had an attitude problem anyway.
