Stupid things heard from writers

    I was on youtube, when a video of a West Wing writer came up. The first words out of his mouth were: "No one, in real life, starts a sentence with Dammit"

    All I could think was this guy has never worked in I.T.

    So, have you heard anything similar?

    Wasn't it Stephen Moffat who said the Doctor's companions has to be early-twenty something women because they were the only ones without commitments who'd drop everything to go with him?

    Discarding the fact that I personally would happily trade a British state pension for a Tardis, has he never heard of bored housewives?

    I heard a real person ask "Dam it, why?" After someone said something like "We could dam the creek."
    Does that count?
