Studio 60: Recap of "The Harriet Dinner, Part I"

If someone were to claim that the dialogue of Studio 60 was, say, hyperbolist, I'd say back to them that they sure as heck have got the wrong show. I mean, really. Those rants about politics, intolerance and hypocrisy regarding a sketch where Nic Cage is a talk show host were understated at most. That backstage flirting-slash-lynching with those romantic "I despise your religion" undertones was so typical of any budding love. And we need not forget such restrained lines as, "Don't you SEE?! They'll end the network!"and "Look out because I'm a-comin' for you." Yet, this episode, after prefacing the impending hyperbole with the fact that he never speaks in hyperboles, Jack hyperbolized: "The fate of Western civilization rests on you talking her out of it" (referring, of course, to Tom needing to go on a date with a viola-playing 20-year-old to convince her that improvisational comedy isn't the right move for her at this point in her life). I swear. I never saw it coming. Read on for more of the slightly exaggerated antics that make Studio what we've all come to know and love.
