“Nothing surprises me on ‘Happy Endings,’ because the show – I think one of the awesome things about the show is that it’s so open to doing anything. We could do a genre episode. We have the green light to do whatever we want. Mostly because no one’s watching.”

― Adam Pally

“The Russo brothers are the best people ever, and they cast me in ‘Happy Endings.’ I did text Joe Russo to say, ‘I don’t think my character dies, so if you need a local news cameraman to show up in ‘Captain America 2’… I know it doesn’t make sense, but just hear me out on this!’ He was really cool about it and turned me down right away.”

― Adam Pally

“’Friends’ started because Rachel left her husband at the altar. This likability factor is just so stupid to me.

“’Entourage’ was a show that existed around wish-fulfillment. People watched it because they wanted to believe they could go on private jets and be hanging out in Hollywood, but as a show, comedically, it was not funny. Not a funny show. It’s funny, ironically, because of how terrible it is.”

― Adam Pally
