NOLAN GOULD: I think it was the late, great W.C.Fields who said, “Never work with kids or animals.” Well, he can kiss my— [cast members cover Nolan’s mouth and pull him away from microphone] [laughter]

RICO RODRIGUEZ: On behalf of the entire cast and crew, the writers and the producers, and all the great guest cast we had on our show this year, we just want to thank you for letting us all be a part of all your families.

NOLAN GOULD: Animals? Really? Do I get a beef treat for all this? Nooo.

ARIEL WINTER: Okay, okay. We honestly have the greatest jobs any actor could ever ask for. The opportunity that we get to make people laugh each week is, you know, we take that very seriously. And thank you to Jeff Greenberg and his casting associate Allen Hooper, our amazing casting directors who brought us to Chris and Steve three years ago.

GOULD: And also… I’m good, guys. [laughter] Thank you to the unions. See? For making sure we’re properly fed, have all our shots, cleaned, and are put in our pens each night by sundown. [laughter]

WINTER: Okay, okay.

RODRIGUEZ: Thank you SAG memberships for voting for us. We really appreciate it. Thank you.

WINTER: Thank you.
