    "There isn’t much to state Sen. Sylvia Larsen’s Wikipedia page. In fact, the entry is only two sentences long. It reads: 'Sylvia Larsen is a Democratic member of the New Hampshire Senate, representing the 15th District since 1994. From 2006 through 2010, when Democrats regained control of the chamber, Larsen served as Senate President.' Wikipedia is good for a lot of things, but it doesn’t do a very good job of putting Larsen’s 20 years of service to her district... and the state of New Hampshire in perspective."

      • Gross: "Now, some managers are famous, and I'm thinking about Ari Emanuel and Entourage, the show that's kind of loosely based on him, I'm sure you would have had that opportunity if you wanted it, to be a name like that... You know, you are so not famous outside of that world; you don't have a Wikipedia entry! In fact -"
      • Gordon: "I know!" (laughs)
      • Gross: "when I found out... wait, really, when I found out you didn't have a Wikipedia entry, my first reaction was, 'Oh no! The film is actually a mockumentary and not a real documentary; the whole thing is made up!' And then..."

Swedish: Melodin är den samma som den brittiska nationalsången God Save the Queen, som började sjungas offentligt 1745. Det är oklart vem som gjort urpsrungsmelodin, enligt Wikipedia. English: The melody is the same as the British national anthem God Save the Queen, which began to be sung in public in 1745. It is unclear who made the original melody, according to Wikipedia.
