Carrie Brownstein, creator-writer-actor: "I think (for) the writers and the director on our show -- and it's rare for television -- it's just about developing your own language that functions well for the show and for the context in which you work, and for us, really. I sometimes think we're these engineers who have to figure out what kinds of scaffolding we need, what kind of infrastructure we need for each piece."
Fred Armisen, creator-writer-actor: "The challenge is we never really know what the episode is going to be until afterwards. It's kind of like in the editing, kind of later on, we realize what we have. We put our energy into making each scene funny for ourselves, and then we just never know how it's going to come together until we see it."
