Notes

"Hey, I'm no nancy boy. I've got my bitchin' truck and my rotteweiler. I'm a dude... But I still admit to my girlfriend when I'm wrong."---Jay Mohr in PREMIERE, August 1997.

"It was fascinating and I wasn't enjoying it, even when it was going well," Mohr said. "I watched Nirvana perform, I talked to Kurt Cobain, I talked to (Eric) Clapton, I got to work with (Chris) Farley every day."

"But I was so self-obsessed with survival -- survival on the show and then mental health survival and back to survival on the show -- I certainly didn't take time to smell the roses."---Mohr on his experience working on "Saturday Night Live" to CNN.com
