    • (Mikey stumbles into LilyMu studios)
      Mitsuki: OMG! Mikey, are you okay?
      Gonard: Of course he's not okay, he's wearing sunglasses indoors!

    • Gonard (in girl's voice): Please let him go.
      Gonard (in William Shatner voice): You'll...have to...kill me first.
      Gonard (in girl's voice): You mean like this? (Gonard fights himself)
      Guano: Gonard, what are you doing? You're already on the show.
      Gonard: Oh... right. (embarrassed chuckle)
      Ozu: This is terrible. All these actors stink.
      Gonard: That last guy was GOOD.
      Ozu: That was you!

    • Guano: But we already have a brilliant cast!
      (Gonard puts his running shoes on his hands)
      Gonard: Dude! Check out my laced gloves. Hey! Where'd my shoes go?
      (Guano slaps his own forehead in frustration)

    • Lily: Yeah, it's Guano's show. Fire him, not the rest of us.
      Guano: You're gonna find somebody else who can write and direct a new episode every week? Not to mention memorize all my character's lines?
      Lily: All your character says is Guano!
      Guano: That's what makes it a challenging role!

    • Ozu: People are losing interest in LilyMu. Even that show about the dancing sandwiches is more popular now.
      (Yes Man holds up a placard with a dancing sandwich with arms and legs holding a top hat and cane)
