He loves Bob Dylan. In the episode of The State (1993) in which we meet the father of Doug (the recurrent character who says "I'm outta heeeere"), it turns out that discontented Doug's dad is totally cool. When Doug mistakenly says that Bob Dylan died of drugs, Lennon's character replies that Dylan is alive and well, "I produced his last five albums." Lennon-as-Dad quietly offers to "sell my Hog and quit the Hell's Angels" if that would make Doug happy. Later, he distributes beers to the teenagers.

Kerri and I met at theater camp when were 16 years old, which is pretty lame. The rest of us met when we founded the State at New York University in 1988. Most of our adult lives have been spent bickering with these people.
