Look, we’re all going to do what we’re going to do but as far as I’m concerned, I do think that if you’re in the public, you have a creative voice and people are starting to pay attention, then you have a responsibility to yourself, to challenge yourself to create new and interesting things but I also feel an urge to make people happy and I want to be happy and I want to feel less alone in the world. I think people want to feel that way too so if that is a talent that I have or that I’m developing I think I have a responsibility to use it as often and as well as I can. (x)

[Tina Fey] had gifted [Amy Poehler] a portrait of her sons Archie and Abel made out of Legos as a wrap gift for completing “The Nest” over the summer.
"I cried because I knew that my gift to Tina was a heart-shaped pillow with the word ‘butts’ on it," she said."
I’m so excited, even if I did expect this!!!
Its always fun when these two get together!!
Now we just need to see Amy make a stop at the Tonight Show!!! It’s hard to believe she still hasn’t been on!! There’s no better time…

"She was another woman who meant so much to me. When we were doing 30 Rock and we needed to cast Jane Krakowski’s estranged Florida dirtbag mother and I thought, ‘My god, do you think we could get Jan Hooks?’ Because she’s an idol of mine, from the Sweeney Sisters to the Miss Self Esteem Pageant. Just the funniest woman ever. And I was like, ‘Do you we could get her? And the answer was like, ‘Yeah, you can get her.’ She was living in Woodstock. And the phone was not ringing.
We called her and said, ‘Do you want to do this?’ And she was like, ‘OK?’ She was actually a little shy about jumping back into the game. And she came down and she was so funny. We did a scene where Jenna and her mother are reunited and they’ve been estranged, but they decide to sing their duet that they used to sing in pageants when Jenna was a child. And it was a mother and a daughter singing to each other: “Do that to me one more time…” (Laughter) And it was so funny and the crew was so mesmerized. It was all at once the most ridiculous and heartbreaking and beautiful, this weird mother-daughter relationship. And I’m so proud of it.
It made me sad when she passed, and it made me mad at the time how available she was. Jan should have had a bigger career. Jan deserved a big movie career. Certainly as big as Rob Schneider’s (expletive) career. She was a bigger star on SNL.”"
