Yay

 

Megan — Did you pick the Betelgeuse (Beetlejuice) reference up as a fan  of Season 1 and help carry it through to its conclusion?  Harmon seems  to credit you for that particular slowburning joke.
Megan Ganz: We had the word  “Beetlejuice” in #304, originally, (in the little speech the security  guard gives Chang about the thing, the arm thing, the parking lot thing,  with the stripes…) and one morning I realized that was the second  time we had used that word. We also used it in the Bottle Episode. So I  came in and jokingly warned Dan during our morning meeting, that the  show had said Beetlejuice twice and we had better be careful. Then he  out-nerded me by remembering that it was said once in first season (by  Prof. Slater). We had the idea to take it out of 304 and put it in the  Halloween episode, so we could have him make an appearance.


Perhaps not as impressive as planning it for three years, but come  on. Have you ever heard a writing staff more nerdy about their own show?
