And I don't really think anybody's mastered a technique on not laughing, it's just fun. I like that.
Eliza Coupe: I keep a knife in my pocket at all times and just stab myself when I'm going to laugh. And it gets a little bloody, it's a little weird, but I am stabbing my leg during most of the show. So . . .
