"I mean, so, if you’re a shipper…nobody knows your value more than me. Nobody wants to not piss you off more than me. But nobody wants… You don’t want me doing everything that you want, because that’s not what romance is. Romance has weather and traffic lights and banana peels involved. It has unpredictability involved."
Dan Harmon, on the commentary for Community s02e20, “Paradigms of Human Memory” (via c-peterson)
"For two seasons we wanted to do an episode where Jeff Winger pretended there was a class called ‘Nicolas Cage Appreciation,’ and then the Dean caught them and as punishment to them he was going to make that a real class and force them to watch all the Nicolas Cage movies in one night. The thing about Nicolas Cage movies is… unless you’re a total cynical dick, you have to embrace the fact that Nicolas Cage is a pretty good actor. He’s done a lot of weird, dumb movies, but that was supposed to be the point of the episode — that Nicolas Cage is a metaphor for God, or for society, or for the self, or something. It’s like — what is Nicolas Cage? What is he? Is he an idiot? Or a genius? Can you write him off, or is he inexplicably bound to your soul?"
