QOTW: "Where's Kathie? I want somebody to inappropriately touch me."
Spoken by:Entertainment Weekly's Tim Stack
Day: Tryday Friday
Context: Clearly, everybody adored guest-host Willie Geist, who sat in for a vacationing KLG and brought snacks, drank bourbon, and even did a little yoga. But Tim Stack, who came by to give Hoda and Willie a preview of the Friday box office, missed the soothing, often unwanted touch of Kathie Lee.
He also found similarities in this weekend's "The Avengers" movie and the time Kathie Lee and Hoda sat in on "The Professionals" segment on April 18 — if "(they) all had to wear catsuits." KLG will be back Monday, Tim. Drop back in soon.
