Tommy Quincy: Look, take studio C, just keep working on that song. All right? I think it's got potential.
Jude Harrison: [voiceover] The princess wanted back what was rightfully hers. The palace, the Pro Tools, and the prince. But this wasn't fantasy, this was reality and the princess realized reality bites.

"Instant Star: Train in Vain (#1.12)" (2005)
Jude Harrison: The last days of recording an album are like the last days of summer camp. Everyone's high on a dangerous cocktail of mopyness and exhaustion. The counselors are restless, everyone's sick of the food, more than a little smelly, and generally way past ready to get on the bus for home. And then you realize leaving camp means saying goodbye and some people you can't imagine saying goodbye to... ever.
