->Can it really be the case that no one knew what he was doing? Did some turn a blind eye to criminality? Did some prefer not to follow up their suspicions because of this criminal's popularity and place in the schedules?

->This blackout should serve as the turning point, the moment in history when a network executive finally puts his foot down and says: ''"Why are we doing this? Why do we spend gobs and gobs of money on ex-players and ex-coaches who can't fucking talk?"'' What is the point of Dan Marino? Seriously, WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT? If he were fired tomorrow, would you miss him at all? You probably wouldn't even notice him until he [[DirtyOldMan knocked up your niece]]...That's $2 million--more than 70 times the median annual wage in America--for nothing. For $2 million a year, you get Dan Marino clumsily attempting to justify the fact that he makes $2 million a year.

For $2 million a year, you get Dan Marino clumsily attempting to justify the fact viewer. There was one person last night who seemed genuinely aware that he makes $2 million a year.there was an audience to please, and that was {{Music/Beyonce}}. Maybe she should host the goddamn thing from now on.

->I can’t wait to use it when the cashier at CVS tells me my card has been declined again. ''“I am a ''Kennedy''. My last name [[ImplausibleDeniability means ‘Kennedy’ in Japanese]]. Google me. If you don’t give me my stuff, the governor will be calling.”'' But really, it must be great to be a bouncer sometimes. Getting to say “[[HaHaHaNo NO]]” to a spoiled ass brat who has only heard “yes” their entire life is probably a spiritual experience. Who needs church? If you ever want to feel lifted up and whole, just get a job as a part-time bouncer at a club where underage rich kids try to get into.

->Alveda King is a [[IgnorantOfTheirOwnIgnorance notoriously obtuse]] conservative activist and author. She is also the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., a fact she doesn’t exactly try to downplay, and which both she and her supporters treat as if it somehow conveyed upon her own ideas some special sort of legitimacy. His dream is ''“in her genes,”'' she has said repeatedly...She dismissed the late Coretta Scott King’s support for marriage equality for same-sex couples and CSK’s reports on MLK’s support for the same, saying ''“I’ve got his DNA. She doesn’t, she didn’t … I know something about him. I’m made out of the same stuff.”'' Yes, that’s her analysis of CSK’s evidence.\\\
She likes to refer to things she doesn’t like as “[[YouCanPanicNow genocide]]”.

->[[Radio/TheHowardSternShow Bubba the Love Sponge]], an obese radio host and longtime friend of Wrestling/HulkHogan, served as the show's interviewer. He tried to use the whole show to get himself over (as opposed to [[DumbassDJ the people he was supposed to be interviewing]])...What did Bubba do to deserve getting shitcanned by TNA when "[[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Fuck Haiti]]" wasn't enough? He ambushed [[Wrestling/AwesomeKong Kong]] during an interview on another radio show and spouted racist/sexist slurs at her. (The host of the radio show was one of Bubba's friends and had planned the ambush with him.)

->'''Jay:''' That's not the last time [[Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield JBL]] was a shitbag. You remember in 2009--or was it 2008--he was also bullying Wrestling/JoeyStyles, until Styles exploded and [[DavidVsGoliath knocked him unconscious]]?\\
'''OOC:''' He '''must''' have caught him with a lucky shot.\\
'''Jay:''' Oh, I have no doubt. Most of the people who were there said that JBL was turning, and he turned ''into'' the punch, and it was just one of those 1 in 1,000,000 shots. But that's all it took; he fuckin' floored him. And even ''if'' Bradshaw had got up and kicked seven shades out of him, wouldn't have made a difference. The fact is ya got fuckin' knocked out by fuckin' ''"[[{{Nerd}} catfiiiiiiiiiight!]]"'' End of story.\\
'''OOC:''' *sigh* Would the boys in the locker room not jump in and say, ''"Would you fuck off, you gobshite"''?\\
'''Jay:''' He's {{Wrestling/Vince|McMahon}}'s boy, right? They're, like, golf buddies.\\
'''OOC:''' Aw, bollocks.
