i was reading the development files for the pilot and i noticed in most versios it was written that Hudson was not the trio's babysitter, Goliath is and Hudson wouldn't like it if he was forced to be their babysitter. i understand that Goliath is the clan leader and therefore responsible for all the gargoyles, but Hudson is the trio's last living rookery father, doesn't that give him some responsibility towards them? why would he be insulted to be a parental figure to the trio, afterall Goliath isn't their father, Hudson is...?
Good point. Keep in mind, that those old documents were a work in progress. The definitive version of the characters is what you saw on the screen. Not what was written over a year earlier.
your response one time was quote, "... who can explain this crazy little thing called love?" (in reference to bronx and boudicah.)
I had a good laugh.
And you thought your smart-ass responses were getting lame!
Thanks. Out of context it still sounds lame. But maybe it was funnier at the time.
Here are some of my favorite smart-ass responses
So Greg, which came first...The gargoyle or the egg?
Why did Lex start a business?
Because it was there.
Finding myself lost in that massive "Old Ask Greg Archive," I stumbled across a mention of a missing World Tour episode featuring Coldstone in the Himalayas. What would've happened there?
An entire story.
Just thought that I might tell you that I was very amused (LOL), in fact, by your answer to the question about whether pigs can fly in the Gargoyles Universe ("I've got the bacon, do you have the catapult?") - particularly since I'd never imagined firing pigs from a catapult as a means of accomplishing that feat.
Then you don't watch enough Monty Python.
In the episode the gathering (part 2) what did titania whisper to fox at the end of the episode. I have been wondering this for a long time.
You and what army?
Oh, yeah. That army. <WAVES> "Hi, guys!"
How do gargoyles view Homosexuality?
On cable, like the rest of us.
Hey Greg ^_^
I'm a huge E&G fan (Elisa and Goliath, but I'm sure you know that o.O) and I was wondering, in absolutely any way, would Goliath and Elisa EVER have kids? *waits for beating* >;)
Admit it, for a huge E&G fan, you couldn't be bothered to check either the E or G archive and get your answer immediately. Instead you post a question here and wait over a month for a response that I've already posted MANY times before. Right?
Anyway, "kids" plural?
3. *DO* the other gargs need to shave?
4. If so, what do they shave with, particularly Goliath on the Avalon tour?
3. Not Angela.
4. Superman checked in periodically, and volunteered his heat-vision.
What is it like for you to have so many people worshiping the ground you walk on?
Pretty cool most of the time.
And then I get an embarrassing question like this one...
Well, that's enough. Other people had submitted some very good ones as well.
Thanks. Some of those are pretty funny, I guess.
I went through the Smart-Ass Responses Archive and hunted down my favorites. I'm cold, but I'm smiling.
1. The entire "What did Titania whisper to Fox?" controversy.
2. Wing asks, "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop?"
Greg responds, "The world may never know."
3. "Frank Welker" makes the Stone of Destiny special.
4. Catapult + Bacon = Flying Pigs. And Todd Jensen _definetly_ doesn't watch enough Monty Python.
5. Ed asks, "What... could Sevarius possibly cook up next?"
Greg respnds, "Breakfast?"
6. "All cookies are true. Especially peanut butter cookies." One wonders if you've received some message from a peanut butter cookie.
7. The fate of the Pack Helicopter? "They turned it into a planter." Fuschias, right? They'd look pretty.
8. LSZ asks, "What new villains... would appear in Pendragon?"
Greg responds, "There's the amazing NEW GUY. He's terrifying."
9. Puck asks, "Are gargoyles realy real?"
Greg responds, "You misspelled 'really'." He did, he really did.
10. And the ever-popular, "Do gargoyles leave marks on hardwood floors?"
Greg responds, "There's a smart ass answer in here somewhere, but I just can't find it."
Joxter thought the answer was "Doing what?"
I know the real answer. Gargoyles are just like humans in that they leave marks on hardwood floors when they wear high heeled shoes. Ask any good contractor-- Ms. Dominique Destine has gone through several, I'm sure.
Okay, I'm done making a fool of myself for today. You can all go about your business now, nothing to see here.
At least no one can accuse us of not having a good time wasting time, right?
As you may know, Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot is currently being re-aired (heh, mostly aired for the first time, 'cause they only showed 6 eps in Fall '99) by Fox. You wrote the second ep, "Out of Whack", with the rather scary subplot of Rusty being afraid he'd get turned to scrap in
"the grinder". You also introduced the Legion Ex Machina, their mole Dr. Gilder/Number Six, and picked a pretty darn cool (and gutsy!) way for Rusty to save the day. Any thoughts on this episode?
Also, are you related to Marlowe Weisman, who also wrote for Big Guy and Rusty?
I know Marlowe, but no, we are not related. I am related to Jon Weisman, my brother, who has also written scripts for Men In Black, Starship Troopers, Max Steel, Hercules and So Weird.
As for "Out of Whack", most of the credit for that episode, and that series, should go to Producer/Story Editor Duane Capizi. The Legion Ex Machina was his idea. And my version of it was very different. Duane rewrote me quite a bit, actually.
But the basic telling of the story is mine. And I thought it was kind of fun. Originally, I was supposed to write a number of Rusty episodes. But then I wound up doing Max Steel instead. Oh, well.
Is Jason Canmore your Mary Sue character?
I'll say it again. Huh?
How is it that the space spawn war hasn't ended after a few thousand years? I mean both sides would have felt the results of the war that they would want to negotiate a treaty.
So you say.
Who really discovered the Americas in the Gargoyles Universe?
Why, were they lost?
Will any other existing characters that we know besides Robyn, Dingo, Yama and Fang serve a stink in the Redemption Squad?
Some typos are more equal than others.
I don't mean to sound pecimistic, but I was thinking:
What would happen to the fae (Oberon's children) whenever our sun goes supernova or burns out in about 6 billion years? If it goes supernova it will engulf the Earth with it, or if it burns out, everything living on the planet will die. The reason I ask, is because the fae don't seem to be very interested in exploring space, so since they are immortal, what do you think would become of them? (I feel I might get a smart-ass response to this)
I'm pessimistic about your spelling.
[Was that smart-ass enough? It just didn't feel like it.]
