One of the best moments of any Liars show is hearing the crowd squawk ‘We’re doomed! We’re doomed!’ on cue during ‘We Fenced Other Houses with the Bones of Our Own.’ Maybe not the most uplifting audience sing-along in the indie rock world, but one of the most reliably entertaining.
Rob Sheffield
Unlike movies, on stage there are no second chances. Everything is live. If someone messes up, forgets a line, gives the wrong cue, you need to have the presence of mind to move the play along.
Poonam Dhillon
To apply spin with security, you must learn to make a snug bridge with your forefinger looped over the cue. When you hit the cueball, follow straight through; don’t let your cue rise in the air after impact.
Robert Byrne
It’s easy to make a cue last a lifetime. Don’t boil it or freeze it in the trunk of a car. Don’t lean it against a wall for years. If you lose a game to a complete idiot, hit the edge of the table in anger with something other than your cue.
Robert Byrne
There is a time in the life of every predicament where it is ripe for resolution. Emotions provide the cue to act when a problem is big enough to see, yet still small enough to solve. By understanding your emotions, you can move adeptly through your current challenges and prevent future ones.
Travis Bradberry

Michael Giacchino
When you’re doing a film, you’re on a set and you have retakes and you have time to get it right. And on ‘SNL’ it’s just go, go, go. If you can’t read the cue cards or miss your mark, you’re just left to sort of screw up. So there’s a lot more pressure doing a live TV show.
Megan Fox

Christian Borle

On screen, I may hate a co-star, have a stomach ache, but I have to convince you of that emotion that is demanded on cue. There are times when I feel like dancing, but on ‘action,’ I’ll have to cry.
Parineeti Chopra
It’s certainly strange to do sketch comedy with cue cards at midnight in a skyscraper as opposed to in a basement with your friends.
Casey Wilson
If I walk into the editing room, it’s six hours lost. I’m massaging frames. I’m, like, ‘Oh, take six frames off that shot. Hit the music cue right there.’ I will drive everybody crazy if left to my own devices in that room. So I try to do everything I can by staying out of the way.
Julie Plec
I can laugh on cue, and it sounds real. People laugh with me.

Algernon Blackwood
A long break can cause long-term damage to a player’s technique. It can be dangerous for a snooker player to go 2-3 months without even touching a cue.

Kellie Martin

I’m convinced that I’ve been hired for jobs because I can cry on cue.

When I went to acting school, the kids that got the best grades were the kids that could cry on cue. But it didn’t really translate into careers for any of them, because the external is the easy part.

Ralph Richardson
At 24, my head was as shiny as a cue ball on a billiard table. I naturally thought this meant curtains. Actually, I found it helped. When I was too young to play real character parts, they mistook me for older because of the bald noggin. I got juicy roles right from the start.
Frank Cady
Once, I was going to a film event, and someone told me not to wear high heels to it. They said that it might intimidate the men.
