  • QUOTES (9)

    • Terry O'Quinn: (referring to the actresses of "Desperate Housewives") Sometimes when we're rolling around in the jungle in the mud, hitting each other and stabbing each other, I wonder what it would be like to bake up a sheet of cookies on Wisteria Lane and get one of their checks.

    • Thomas Haden Church: (accepting his Emmy for "Broken Trail") This is probably going to be my daughter's favorite toy when we get home, next to SpongeBob. Product placement.

    • Ryan Seacrest: (hosting the event) There are over 6,000 people here tonight. All of them talented, all of them looking incredible, all of them passed on hosting this year.

    • James Spader: (winning over James Gandolfini of "The Sopranos") I feel like I just stole a pile of money from the mob. And they are all sitting right over there.

    • Sally Field: (accepting her Emmy for "Brothers & Sisters") So surely this (award) belongs to all the mothers of the world. Especially the mothers who stand with an open heart and wait, wait for their children to come home from danger from harm's way and from war.

    • Ray Romano: (on the conclusion of the HBO series) I loved the finale of The Sopranos. I totally got it. I liked it because the way that show ended is the same way sex ends for me.

    • (Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert enter to announce the next winner. Colbert enters with a leaf blower.)
      Stephen Colbert: This baby runs on alternative fuels... Al Gore's tears... he's a crybaby. We are so lucky he is not our president... If entertainers stopped publicly congratulating each other, the earth wins.

    • Elaine Stritch: Stanley, you're gonna look good in a round.
      (After Stanley Tucci and she read from the prompter)
      Elaine Stritch: I'm not faking this. I really don't know what the hell I'm doing.

    • Wayne Brady: (to Kanye West during the sing off bit) You picked a bad time to speak properly.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Ray Romano: Frasier is screwing my wife? Huh? What?! What?! Patty, how could you? We have TV children!

      Ray was talking about the new show Back To You. It stars Kelsey Grammer (who played Dr. Frasier Crane on the shows Cheers and Frasier) and Patricia Heaton (who played Debra Barone, Ray's wife, on the show Everybody Loves Raymond).
