Notes & Memorable Quotes Edit

Pre-Guest Segment Edit

  • Hayes hates intolerance so much that when he see's it he wants to do something bad

Guest Segment Edit

  • Kyle Newacheck is the first director on the show, but everyone agrees it's so easy anyone can do it
  • Kyle directed Hardboiled, and the scene in Cool Hand Luke when he eats hardboiled eggs. Full of winks.
  • Sean re: Kyle's work: "You don't have to pay attention to all the little details to enjoy it, but boy does he reward you if you do." Rewatch culture. 12 rewatches are suggested
  • Sean asked Kyle how pissed he gets when people say Vine is dead, and Kyle proceeds to say he gets very pissed. 6 seconds is all you need.
  • Lots of dead air. Sean doesn't have a new Macbook. Kyle has gas station coffee. Hayes is a slave to the stuff. Sean wonders (much later) if that movie 12 Years a Slave was about coffee.
  • Nathan Lane wants to move on from the Birdcage to helming a project about birds
  • According to Nathan, Kyle is a bitch ass director from Workofholics, and Kyle asked if he can at least make the bird sounds, which is all he really does on the show
