Said by {{producer|s}} Creator/DonaldPBellisario on March 17, 1990 at an SF convention in response to a persistent fan with very specific questions about the way things worked on Bellisario's series ''Series/QuantumLeap''. An unashamed admission of {{handwav|e}}ing details unnecessary to the enjoyment of a show, and an exhortation to not let the obsession with those details get in the way of the story. Implicit in the Maxim is a request to understand that the story is being told by a small production team that (due to the limitations of the medium) has to work quickly, with a [[NoBudget limited budget]] and [[CosmicDeadline tight deadlines]], and has to dodge ExecutiveMeddling, all while trying to turn out the best product it can.
