"Until you’re about the age of twenty, you read everything, and you like it simply because you are reading it. Then between twenty and thirty you pick what you want, and you read the best, you read all the great works. After that you sit and wait for them to be written. But you know, the least known, the least famous writers, they are the better ones."

"Eight years ago, I got into that Tina Fey world and it’s hard to get out of it. She is everything you kind of want her to be. Best writer I’ve ever been around, and just a great person, great human being. When she first said, “I wrote another pilot, would you look at it?”. I thought, “I can’t go back to New York”. And I read it. I knew right away. I was on page 3 and I was like, “Ugh, I’m gonna do this”. The [Tooken] script is so funny. It’s the funniest pilot I’ve ever read since the 30 Rock pilot."

DO NOT DISMISS A SOMETHING A CHILD IS PROUD OF. LOOK AT IT. POINT SOMETHING OUT AND TELL THEM YOU LOVE IT. IF A CHILD DRAWS YOU A RAINBOW, TELL THEM YOU LOVE HOW IT HAS RED. THEY WILL THINK “WOW. IT DOES HAVE RED. THEY LOVE HOW I PUT RED IN IT. I PUT RED IN IT. AND THEY NOTICED.” MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS YOU ARE PROUD OF THEM.
