Best Quotes from Seth Meyers on The Martha Stewart Show
ON THE PRESSURE OF PRESENTING MARTHA WITH THE TOP OF THE 1000 CUPCAKE TOWER:
SM: It’s so heavy.
MS: Can you climb up this ladder? We need to get it up on the pinnacle.
SM: I am so nervous about this.
MS: The pinnacle of the tower!
SM: I know.
MS: If you drop this Seth…
SM: I know, everyone told me what would happen. Its bad enough, I woke up so early to bake it and now I have to put it up here.
MS: What did they say would happen to you?
SM: They kind of just, you know that motion where they take an index finger and slash it across the neck?
MS: Now don’t get your sleeves in the other cupcakes.
SM: I know there’s so much to worry about (places cake on top).
MS: Oh my god isn’t that gorgeous.
ON THE POSSIBILITY OF SETH LANDING IN THE ER FOR THE 1000TH SHOW:
MS: Now don’t cut yourself! This is a little more challenging, to cut the baguette, down the entire length evenly.
SM: You know I was fine until you said don’t cut yourself. And then all I could picture was your 1000th show and the E.R.
MS: Well that would be fun, that would be in the blooper reel!
SM: Yeah, exactly.

MS: Thank you.
SM: Forty…forty one…forty two…
MS: Are you going to short me? Do I have to take an i.o.u?
SM: And the rest, the rest is later.
MS: Later, okay, so I have forty three dollars from SM Meyers! Who doesn’t make so much money.
SM: Well, that’s true I don’t.
MS: You’re going to be making so much money, I loved it when you laughed and cried.
SM: Well we did an interview where you asked me how much money I made and it was such a weird question that I started to cry…I started to laugh so hard that I cried.
ON SETH HOSTING THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS DINNER AND MARTHA’S INVITE:
MS: Well, on April 30th you’re going to be hosting the White House Correspondents Dinner.
SM: I am.
MS: Oh I want to come!
SM: Why wouldn’t you come?
MS: April 30th, I have to get an invite, I used to go all the time… And then they stopped inviting me for some reason.
SM: Well I heard it was due to your behavior.
MS: Oh, it was bad?
SM: You heckled the president, I think famously.
MS: Which one?
SM: No I’m just kidding.
MS: No I did not, I’m never, I’m always well behaved. Oh I have to come, if your hosting, I’m coming.
SM: Yes please.
MS: Have you written it?
SM: I’m working on it now.
MS: Well you can be really mean.
SM: Why is that always your take on things?
MS: No, no, I don’t want you to be mean, you could be mean.
SM: Right, I could be mean.
MS: But now I’m thinking about it and it’s this president, I don’t think we should be mean to this president.
SM: Well, we’ll see, you’ll have to tune in to CSPAN.
MS: Oh my god, no I’m going, I’m going! I love that dinner!
SM: Oh good.
MS: So Saturday Night Live is not taping for the next few weeks, why?
SM: Because I’m getting ready for the correspondence dinner.
MS: They stopped the whole show because of you?
SM: No, I wanted to make it seem that way…We just have a couple of reruns and then we come back for our last three of the year.
MS: Oh okay, and who’s hosting?
SM: Tina Fey is our first one back.
SM: Yeah, you love her.
MS: Very, very great.
