Tina Fey: Ok, so when exactly did you start to feel sick?
Sylvia: Oh, I’ll tell you when I started to feel sick, Missy. Its when I saw the size of the cabin we were staying in. I tell you, I would have sprung for the extra 50 bucks a night if I had known that I was going to be shoved in that tiny cabin like a veal.

Sylvia: And we paid for a room with a view. Argh! What view? All I could see was the ocean!
