"It's the dialogue aspect of this process where you realize how great, how talented this troupe really is, because they're able to improvise some amazingly, brilliantly funny lines. And they kind of know when to be funny and when not to be funny, so it's a kind of weird balancing act. You sometimes hear a line in a scene and you know how funny it is, but you don't really want to laugh while the cameras are rolling." - on working on Christopher Guest's largely improvised films, from The A.V.
