- Andy: They’re trying. But they know they’re not going to get anything on the air. Lesson One is they got to live and die on Friday night. They got to feel like success in a 3 minute sketch is the same thing as love. And they got to fear failure like it’s grim death. They got to be every bit as damaged as you are.
- Danny: What do you think he should do?
- Andy: Toss them in the river [...] Give their sketch a spot at the dress [rehearsal] tonight. Let them hear what 300 people not laughing sounds like.
