Waldorf Astoria. November 12, 2011. By Jennifer Vineyard

Since this is called ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s,’ did anything funny happen to you guys on your way here? “Yeah! A terrible amount of traffic. And there was lots of bickering between my girls about garments and shoes.” —TRACY POLLAN


Did anything funny happen to you on your way here? “Besides the fact that we were stuck in traffic? It took us twenty minutes to move a few blocks.” —JULIANNA MARGULIES


Everyone’s saying that the traffic was terrible coming here. “It was infuriating. The deal with traffic is, even though everyone is in the same boat, I just want to push them all out of the way, because it always seems like I’ve got something more important to do.” —RICKY GERVAIS


I almost feel like I should congratulate you, since your character on The Good Wife finally got the big office, the promotion. “Ah, please do! Give me a hug!” —MATT CZUCHRY


Did anything funny happen to you on your way here? “My contact popped out in the car. This is not a commercial, but you know Acuvue throwaways? That’s my lifesaver.” —ELIZABETH BERKLEY


Everyone’s talking about how much traffic there was coming here. “Yeah, we had so much time on the way here, we may have made another baby.” —ALI WENTWORTH


Think we’ll ever get to see a real hoverboard like the one in Back to the Future? “Bob Zemeckis once said that they actually existed, but that Mattel was pressured by the government safety groups not to release it but that’s all B.S. It was a pink piece of plastic they stapled to my shoe, and dangled me from wires.” —MICHAEL J. FOX
