1. On "Alec Baldwin kicked off plane at L.A. airport"
Darlene Ong: "What a complete and utter jerk to make other people wait for their flight to take off because they had to go back to the gate and kick him off. When a flight attendant tells you to shut things down, you shut things down. Unless you're a complete and total moron like Baldwin."

Alec Baldwin apologizes to fellow passengers

2. On "Madonna set to tackle Super Bowl"
Daniel Morton:  "She woulda been a good choice back when they still wore leather helmets, not now!"

3. On "Will Indy die in 'Indiana Jones 5'?
Nick DeStefano: "Shia is not what was wrong with 'Indy 4.' It's George Lucas who ruins everything he touches. He ruined 'Star Wars' and now he's ruining 'Indy.' Time for Jorge to retire into the sunset with his millions of dollars and stop screwing up beloved movie franchises with his stupid, stupid ideas."

4. On ''Virgin Diaries' couple says their first time wasn't like in the movies"
Deanna Williams: "That is setting yourself up for failure. You gotta test drive the car to make sure there are no problems, geesh!"

5. On "Harry Morgan dies at 96"
Becky Masoner: "He was a great actor. Loved it when his Jeep got run over by Frank in a tank on 'M*A*S*H' and he shot the jeep to put it out of its misery."
