Maurice Sendak on Colbert Report – A Wild Man Indeed

Author of “Where the Wild Things Are” Maurice Sendak was able to keep up with Stephen Colbert in what has to be the best interview in the Colbert Report’s history. With lines like “I didn’t set out to make children happy or make life better for them or easier for them” its hard to tell if he’s being serious or joking… but its probably a little bit of both. He also calls Newt Gingrich an idiot. When Sendak tells Stephen Colbert he’s gay, in full character Colbert says, “and they let you write children’s books?” Watch the hilarious part one and then part two below:

15 Best Jack Donaghy Quotes – Alec Baldwin on 30 Rock

30 Rock might be the funniest show on television right now… ok top 5? Well, the best part about it is Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy, the Vice President of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming for General Electric and Liz Lemon’s (played by Tina Fey) friend and boss. 30 Rock’s season premiere is tonight and here are his 15 best quotes from the show so far. Are we missing any?

15. C’mon Lemon, what do we elites do when we screw up? We pretend it never happened and give ourselves a giant bonus.

14. “Donaghy saves GE… marries your mom”

13. Jack Donaghy: You have to fire ten percent of your staff.
Liz Lemon: What?
Jack Donaghy: We have to synergize backward overflow.

12. Lemon: “I’m feeling pretty drunk.”
Jack: “Well, it’s business drunk, it’s like rich drunk. Either way, it’s legal to drive.”

11.  Being in a relationship means overlooking certain flaws. I mean, somewhere right now a guy is on a J-Date with Monica Lewinsky. Nobody’s perfect.

10. Jack: Alfredo’s, 2 PM.
Liz Lemon: I’m not dressed for that.
Jack: You’re dressed for Burger King. Should we make it Burger King?

9. Jack: One minute you’re newlyweds, making love on the floor of the Concorde. Then, before you know it, your lawyers are arguing over who gets to keep the box your dog defecates in.
Liz Lemon: You taught your dog to poop in a box?
Jack: Bianca did. But, damn it, I want that box.

8. Jack Donaghy: Now let me hear you say the seven most important words in the American judicial system.
Frank Rossitano: My client has no memory of that.
Jack Donaghy: I also would have accepted ‘You can’t prove that’s the Governor’s semen’.

7. Jack: I haven’t met your boyfriend.
Liz Lemon: His name’s Floyd.
Jack: That’s unfortunate.

6. Kenneth Parcell: “Oh, uh, no, sir. I don’t vote Republican or Democrat. Choosing is a sin, so I always just write in the Lord’s name!”
Jack: “That’s Republican. We count those.”

5. Jack: I like when a woman has ambition. It’s like seeing a dog wearing clothes.

4. [Jack is in a museum facing a painting, waiting for Liz Lemon to meet him there. Liz appears behind him without announcing her arrival]
Jack: You’ve been avoiding me, Lemon.
Liz Lemon: How do you do that, without turning around?
Jack: To be perfectly honest, the first couple of people I did that to were not you, but… here we are.

3. Liz Lemon: Hey Jack, do you treat me any differently because I’m a woman?
Jack Donaghy: Well, I pay you a little less, yes.

2. Jack: “The Italians have a saying, Lemon: ‘Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.’ And, although they’ve never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.”

1. Lemon: “Why are you wearing a tux?”
Jack: “It’s after 6. What am I, a farmer?”

The 10 Best TV Neighbors – Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Ever wish you had a different neighbor? Well, what about a neighbor like one if these neighbors… the ten best in TV history

10. Larry Dallas – (Three’s Company) – Jack Tripper’s womanizing best friend. The best sleazy neighbor in history.

9. Richard “Boner” Stabone (Growing Pains) – Mike Seavor’s (Kirk Cameron) friend, neighbor and owner of the greatest nickname in family friendly sitcom history.

8. Barney Rubble (The Flintstones) – The diminutive blonde-haired caveman husband of Betty Rubble and father of Bamm-Bamm Rubble. He’s Fred Flinstone’s best friend and who doesn’t want to live next their best friend?

7. Urkel (Family Matters) – Steve was the epitome of a geek/nerd, with large, thick eyeglasses, “high-water” or “flood” pants held up by suspenders, multi-colored cardigan sweaters, and a high-pitched voice. He professed unrequited love for neighbor Laura Winslow, perpetually annoyed her father, Carl, and tried to befriend her brother, Eddie. He was annoying, but certainly his heart was always in the right place.

6. Wilson Wilson (Home Improvement) – Who cares if you can’t see his face…ever.  Tim’s neighbor and confidant. As a child, his parents did not allow him to speak to his neighbors, so he really likes talking to Tim and Jill. Wilson serves as an all-wise sage in the show, doling out advice to the Taylor family and seemingly knowing just what to say to solve a problem. He has traveled the globe and learned much from virtually every culture in existence. He has a Ph.D. in Cultural Studies, studying “extinct languages and forgotten cultures”.

5. Winnie Cooper (The Wonder Years) – Kevin Arnold’s main love interest. In an episode entitled “The Accident” and in the final episode, it is stated that every important event in Kevin’s life somehow involves Winnie. She lives on the same block as Kevin. She is the very definition of the “girl next door.”

4. Kramer (Seinfeld) – with his upright hairstyle and vintage wardrobe, the combination of which led to his categorization as a “hipster doofus”; his taste in fruit; his love of occasional smoking, Cuban cigars in particular; his energetic bursts through Jerry’s apartment door; frequent pratfalls and his penchant for nonsensical, percussive outbursts of noise to indicate skepticism, agreement, annoyance, and a variety of other inexplicable responses. Kramer is the best wacky neighbor in television history.

3. Ethel (I Love Lucy) – Ethel was Lucy’s landlady, and Ethel and Lucy were always scheming though Ethel generally provided the voice of reason as a counterpart to Lucy’s more hairbrained ideas. Still, she was the number one person she got in trouble with.

2. Ned Flanders (The Simpsons) – The long suffering neighbor to the Simpson family and Ned generally loathed by Homer Simpson. A devout Christian, he is amongst the friendliest and most compassionate Springfield citizens and is generally considered a pillar of the Springfield community. He may speak in an annoying rhyming pitter patter, but he’s the ultimate in turning the other cheek…especially when it comes to Homer Simpson.

1. Mr. Rogers (Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood) – Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was characterized by its quiet simplicity and gentleness. Episodes did not have a plot, and consisted of Rogers speaking directly to the viewer about various issues, taking the viewer on tours of factories, demonstrating experiments, crafts, and music, and interacting with his friends. He is the ultimate neighbor and easily the best neighbor in television history.

Sheldon: I made tea.
Leonard: I don’t want tea.
Sheldon: I didn’t make tea for you. This is my tea.

Sheldon: It’s a conversation starter.
Leonard: That’s a lousy conversation starter.
Sheldon: Oh, is it? We’re conversing. Checkmate.

Sheldon: A little misunderstanding? Galileo and the Pope had a little misunderstanding.

Sheldon: Leonard, you may be right. It appears that Penny secretly wants you in her life in a very intimate and carnal fashion.
Leonard: You really think so?
Sheldon: Of course not. Even in my sleep-deprived state, I’ve managed to pull off another one of my classic pranks. BAZINGA!

Sheldon: I am not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Leonard: For God’s sake, Sheldon, do I have to hold up a sarcasm sign every time I open my mouth?
Sheldon (intrigued): You have a sarcasm sign?

Sheldon: Interesting. Sex works even better than chocolate to modify behavior. I wonder if anyone else has stumbled onto that.

Sheldon: You can try, but you’ll never catch me. Bazinga!

Sheldon: Hello Penny. I realize you are currently in the mercy if your primitive biological urges. But, as you have an entire lifetime of poor decisions ahead of you, may I interrupt this one?

Sheldon: Are you upset about something?
Leonard: What was your first clue?
Sheldon: Well there was a number of things. First the late hour, then you demeanors seems very low energy plus your irritability…

Sheldon: (walks away and then turns back) Oh, wait. Did you want to talk about what’s bothering you?
Leonard: I don’t know… maybe.

Sheldon: You can’t make a half sandwich. If it’s not half of a whole sandwich, it’s just a small sandwich.

Sheldon: Oh, Ubuntu. You’re my favorite Linux-based operating system.

Sheldon: Howard, you know me to be a very smart man. Don’t you think that if I were wrong, I’d know it?

Sheldon: This is the temperature you agreed to in the roommate agreement.
Leonard: Aw, screw the roommate agreement!
Sheldon: No, you don’t screw the roommate agreement. The roommate agreement screws you.

Leonard: When we watch Frosty the Snowman, he roots for the sun.
Sheldon: Excuse me, but the sun is essential for all life on earth. Frosty is merely a bit of frozen, supernatural ephemera in a stolen hat. A crime, by the way, for which he is never brought to account.

Sheldon: Penny.
Penny: Yeah.
Sheldon: Thanks for letting me stay here.
Penny: Oh, you’re welcome sweetie.
Sheldon: Okay, I’m sleepy now get out.

Sheldon: A neutron walks into a bar and asks how much for a drink. The bartender replies “for you, no charge”.

Sheldon: She calls me moon-pie because I’m nummy-nummy and she could eat me up!

Sheldon: Hello, Amy Farrah Fowler. I’m sorry to inform you that you’ve been taken in by unsupportable mathematics designed to prey upon the gullible and the lonely. Additionally, I am being blackmailed with a hidden dirty sock.
Amy: If that was slang, I’m unfamiliar with it. If it was literal, I share your aversion to soiled hosiery.

Snickers: “You’re playing like Betty White out there” – “That’s not what your girlfriend said” was the funniest line I’ve heard in a commercial in quite some time. Don’t front on Abe Vigoda either.

Doritos: “These are the rules,” the kid says. “Keep your hands off my mama, and keep your hands off my Doritos.”

Boost Mobile: The Bears Super Bowl Shuffle 2.0 with Jim McMahon and Coach Mike Ditka was funny and out there.
