    That's interesting, you always here those stories like that. Are there any stories where someone missed the flight on 9/10 and had to take the 9/11 one instead?

    Rob Lowe was on an earlier flight that was apparently a dry run for Atta and his crew. He was contacted by the FBI to see what he remembered.

    Are you sure that was Rob Lowe? I have a vague recollection of a story like that, but not of it being Rob.

    I don't think MacFarlane's ever made a big deal about it because's he's notoriously late to everything. This was just one of many flights he's missed in his life.

    The story I remember was James Woods (ironic for the Family Guy connection).

    But if there ever was one to miss...


    Regarding SNL, I thought he did a great job. One of the few I can count on one hand that I watched all the way through. Well, except for the musical guest, I FF'd through that.

    The Ryan Lochte bit was pretty funny. "Goon" was silly enough to make me laugh.

    I read one article where Seth claims he never thinks about missing the plane and thinks of it as no big deal. I think it would freak me out and I would think about it all the time. Thank G-d I don't have to think about that.

    GOON was funny! I give it 3 swims....(holds up 4 fingers) :D:p

    Yes! That's what I couldn't remember remembering. :) James Woods.

    I think I heard him talking about it during an appearance on Howard Stern.

    Speaking of the Lochte bit... isn't there some subtext there because Lochte is dating Seth's ex-girlfriend or something?

    Well, I've heard Seth talk about this, and it *still* isn't a big deal to him. He's very blasé about it.

    Maybe Hollywood agents tell their clients that a 9/11 story is second best to a sex tape for publicity. :rolleyes:

    But...
    1. The terrorists bought 1st class tickets to be seated up front near the cockpit door.
    2. It makes sense that the investigators would seek out passengers that also flew in 1st class
    3. The SAG & AFTRA union rules insist that employers fly talent in 1st class

    I think this is one I'm going to save and rewatch soon. I've been thinking of a couple of the sketches and chuckling to myself. I think it might be a better second time around show.

    That's Emilia Clarke? I would never have recognized her.

    Yeah, but he gets to touch her, when you don't! So who's the winner here?

    Maybe he saw her naked at the same time we did and it is one of the reasons he is dating her. :p
