Never say Chuck Lorre doesn't come prepared.
The co-creator of "Two and a Half Men," "The Big Bang Theory" and CBS' new comedy "Mom" arrived at the Emmy awards on Sunday knowing exactly what he would do if best comedy nominee "Big Bang Theory" grabbed the win.
First, he would remind himself to breathe.
On Thursday night, Lorre shared his latest "vanity card" - a photo of the Emmys speech that never left his pocket. (At Sunday's ceremony, it was "Modern Family" that won the outstanding comedy award.)
But had voters gone with "The Big Bang Theory," which bowed with its seventh season on Thursday, Lorre might've been moved to tears.
"Breath! Don't Cry!" his speech card begins. The notes also include the general groups of people he'd better not forget to thank, including the fans.
Had such a win been pulled off, Lorre would have acknowledged in his speech that it had happened because "BBT" has "the greatest cast, crew (and) writing staff EVER!" Plus, they had Bob Newhart, who won his first Emmy with a guest appearance on the CBS comedy in May.
What do you think - was Lorre sharing the speech he never got to say endearing and honest, or sour grapes?
