    • Dodee: We're the only thing on air right, now--AM, FM, anywhere.
      Phil: Yeah, the blackout, I know.

      Phil: I don't know. But our ratings are gonna be amazing.

    • Dodee: Phil, something bad is going on out there. It could be solar flares disrupting the entire grid.
      Phil: Dodee! The cable's out--it doesn't mean it's the end times.
