“The only one in the cast who stuck out like a sore thumb was Shannen. It’s like when you get a paper cut, and someone just purposely squeezes a lemon on it. She was the lemon. She was just so bitchy.”—Our oral history of Heathers is so very.
“The ‘wide-set vagina’ [line] is one I have a special affection for because that’s the line we had to throw ourselves in front of the train tracks with the MPAA [for], because they didn’t want to let us keep that line.

“On the road in the first season, I was dirty and tied up a lot, out in the mud. It’s fun. I’ve been too clean for two seasons. I gotta get back out in the dirt.”—Peter Dinklage, a.k.a. Tyrion Lannister, gives us a few hints about what to expect on Game of Thrones this season. (Hint: Dinklage got to know the props guy in charge of a handcuffs preeettty well…)
