“If there’s nothing written, there’s nothing.”

“It’s the writing that’s the hardest one, because as long as some form of the script gets written, some form of the show will get done. I can show up and direct the show tired and badly, but it’ll get done. I can act despondently and have a sore throat, but there’ll be a version of the show. But if there’s nothing written, there’s nothing.” — Louis C.K., interviewed by Nathan Rabin at The AV Club
