    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Stephen infers on the show that the new title is now "The Colbert Report"(pronounced Col-burt Re-port). Possibly changed to pay homage to his writer's who are on strike.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Stephen: You say that fish teeth became human breasts.
        Stephen: It's a little more complicated than that.
        Stephen: That is the freaky-est thing I've ever heard in my life. If I see that on a date, Id get the hell out of there!

      • Stephen: Do you have a big collection of jugs?
        Brent Glass: Yes we do.
        Stephen: Really? Do you subscribe to Jugs magazine?
        Brent Glass: No.
        Stephen: Those magazines have unbelievable photo spreads on jugs.

      • Stephen: Just because Thompson has a folksy manner with a deep voice, that doesn't mean you can necessarily trust him. Let's remember, he's an actor. He's an actor on Law & Order. They train all the guys on Law & Order to say things you should never believe in a trustworthy manner as I have proven many times in my award winning series: Sam Waterston Says Things You Should Never Believe In A Trustworthy Manner.
        Sam Waterston: It's okay, I've had a vasectomy. I swear.
