Back when I was going to college, The Cosby Show was popular. And NBC would broadcast these public-service announcements. The Cosby kids would say things like, “Don’t do drugs, because you’ve got a lot to live for.” And I used to think, Well, okay – it’s easy to say that, but some people are sitting at home and aren’t from a rich family and might have no future. And here’s a kid actors making shitloads of money, and he’s telling everyone they have a lot to live for? It’s hypocrisy on the grandest scale. Seeing something like that was always a motivation for me to create something more realistic.

That was one of the things I dealt with in the “I’m with the Band” episode, where Nick auditions to become a drummer. Lindsay tells Nick, “You’ve got to follow your dreams! You can be anything you want to be!”

When I wrote that episode, it was my way of saying, “Actually, no. That’s nonsense. You might have that attitude, but that’s not the way the world works.”
