8:46pm: "Last time I was onstage here, I won a pie-eating contest." God, if they gave Tonys for pie-eating, I'd be WAYYY more likely to win one.
8:52pm: "Sir, you just lost your Tony category. Now put on these extremely tight pants, and belt a high B-natural."
9:00pm: "I'm so honored to be here tonight, I've decided to only cover my breasts with bitsy little flowers." --Jessica Chastain
