Answer: Someone on GW can mention they saw a gnome climbing out of a David Hewlett robot and I'd find that of roughly equal interest.

Answer: When a script comes out for the concept meeting, it comes out as a white draft. As we progress through prep week, changes are made and the pages containing changes are put out as blue pages. In the next round of changes, pages containing changes are put out as pink pages. And as more changes are made, more colors of the rainbow are tapped: green, yellow, grey, goldenrod, tartan, and double-white (not to be confused with single white which looks exactly the same).

Answer: Timing is everything. Amanda was pregnant over the hiatus and gave birth early in season 9. You'll note that she missed a bunch of episodes early in that season and, in the small instances that Carter did pop up, the pregnancy was easily concealed. Rachel was pregnant throughout the show's fourth season and given that we wanted to do more with her character this season, diminishing her role or limiting her character by shooting her behind computers or clutching baskets of turtle root was not an option so we elected to embrace the pregnancy and write it into the show.

Answer: Sure. We always cap off the year with a wrap party.
