Notes & Memorable Quotes Edit

Pre-Guest Segment Edit

  • Ben Affleck being picked to don the cowl (being Batman) is an Epic Fail
  • Sean and Hayes, like Batman, don't give an 'F'
  • Sean and Hayes suggest new Batmans: One of the Metallica Guys, Kim Jong Un, Bo Jackson, Elizabeth Smart, Tim Burton, and the Mythbusters
  • Elizabeth Smart could handle the Joke Man

Guest Segment Edit

  • Sean and Hayes berate Cody for ending the intro song early
  • Adam gets pretty t'ed about the guys calling it Happy Enders instead of Happy Endings
  • Hard to tell Jake Johnson and Adam apart. Ladder of the handsome, schlubby, Jewish guys: Seth Rogen > Josh Gad > Jake Johnson > Adam Pally > David Krumholtz (sewer rat). Krum isn't even on the ladder.
  • Happy Endings is known to S&H as the show that allowed Lamorne Morris to be on New Girl
  • Adam Pally would not buy a gift for an agent, even if the agent pulled him out of a burning building. They already get 10% Adam went on, why give them any more?
  • Adam plugs his band The Adam Pally Project's upcoming tour. Describes the sound as Mumford & Sons with a mouth full of cotton, a white noise machine mixed with the Lumineers

Recurring Segments Edit

  • The Right Stuff (To Do When You're Writing) - about writing, the craft of writing, tips for creating a good script. Fans often (mistakenly) spell it "Write." When needing to write, sit down and think about "Has anything happened to me?" Couple of examples: Captain Phillips was based off a wild boat party Sean and Hayes enjoyed, had to change it a bit (needed a second act) cause they kicked the pirates' whole butts, made 'em wish they were never born. Saving Private Ryan was from Hayes and Sean taking over coaching at a Knicks game.

    1. Toby Keith Sweat - Why is there no sports on TV?
      • Answer: There are sports on TV. Adam goes on to say, Sean probably doesn't know that because he doesn't own a TV
    2. Anthony Scontrino - What kinds of twisted pranks have you pulled on set?
      • Answer: Adam was very adamant that he has never pulled a prank on anyone. Ever.
    3. Andy Kneis: -With the advent of DVR and internet streaming, are you worried that people now have the ability to pause your show on the TV and you'll be stuck making a goofy face?
      • Answer: No, the technology has been around for 7 years. Sean and Hayes then claim it's because Adam is so 'over it'
  • Pro Version - no one in particular. Subscribers win the keycard to Hayes's pool, a free trip to the Earwolf studios after work hours

Recurring Jokes Edit

  • Wife and Kids - Hayes explains to his children how Halloween is a commercial holiday now. Sean is p'ed that Steffi let his two beautiful daughters eat a Nerds Rope with Taylor Lautner's shirtless torso on it, this is sexual!
  • Scoop Troop - Show up late to set to assert your dominance. If you mess up a scene, cut off your hair (head or eyebrows) so they have to shoot the whole scene over from the beginning
  • Talking to the Engineer - Cody gets roasted for having a thought to stop the intro song early.
  • Comic Books - Batman discussion
  • Doesn't Own a TV - Sean mentioned several times how he doesn't think sports is on TV because he doesn't own a TV
  • The Mimby Project - The guys get into on argument over whether it's the Mimby Project or The Mindy Project.
