IGM: I really like Tom Collins’ I’ll Cover You Reprise.

TCTP: What’s your favorite lyric in the show?

IGM: Why do we seek out ecstasy in all the wrong places? Why is it so hard to see that heaven can have simpler faces?

TCTP: Susan doesn’t love being a dance teacher and John doesn’t love working at a diner, while Michael eventually gave up the arts for corporate America. What’s your relationship with your survival job?

IGM: They don’t pay enough and they don’t give me many hours. If you know somewhere hiring servers/bartenders holler at me.
