Gale Ingersoll: [they enter the studio, and stand next to the desk Pierce sits in. Andy is, for some reason, clad only in a bathrobe] Pierce should be on his way, but um... In the meantime you guys maybe could rehearse for the cameras?
Conan O'Brien: Yeah, uh, Andy, maybe you should rehearse naked, so the lighting guys can prepare for your glare?

Megyn Price was the real selling point
24 August 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Megyn Price was the selling point for me on LateIine. She was smart, witty, sassy, not to mention incredibly sexy. She was a fantastic dresser, had a terrific figure, and exreamly attractive. I was very sorry to see this funny, entertaining show cancelled so early on, but I was especially sorry to see Megyn Price's character go. We wouldn't see her on TV's major running for a few years until she became a young mother on Fox's GROUNDED FOR LIFE. However, her costume department wasn't nearly as talented as her old one on LateLine. As far as female office characters go, she was one of the best. Forget Mary Tyler Moore's character, Price's Gale is the finest comedic women on TV. One to put in TV's history books.
