Tina Fey, on whether she had to convince Alec Baldwin to come back to the show:
"I've never even met Alec."

Greg Daniels, executive producer of "The Office," on those Jim-and-Pam-heavy promos:
"I always felt jealous on these Thursday-night promos because everybody else had these really funny clips on, and then, you know, ours was like, 'Do I still love you?'"

Lorne Michaels, "30 Rock" executive producer, on DVD commentaries:
"I was thinking it might be time to buy a DVD player."

John Krasinski on DVD commentaries:
