Chris Hardwick: How stuck to the script are you guys? Can you improvise at all?
Rich Sommer: Not a syllable. It's very, very word-for-word.
CH: You ever use a contraction and they say cut?
RS: They don't say "cut" but the script supervisor does come to you and say "You said 'can't' and it's 'cannot'."
lay has been used intransitively in the sense of “lie” since the 14th century. The practice was unremarked until around 1770; attempts to correct it have been a fixture of schoolbooks ever since.
In episode 3.01, Sal says, “Our worst fears lie in anticipation,” which is correct. But he’s quoting Balzac so I wasn’t sure if he should get credit for it. In fact, he even follows up the line by pointing out, “That’s not me. That’s Balzac.” (The actual Balzac quote is “Our worst misfortunes never happen, and most miseries lie in anticipation.”).
