Merrit Wever won the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy prize at the Emmys. Wever was a dark horse, in a race crowded with Jane Lynch, Jenna Krakowski, and several Modern Family actresses. Wever walked onstage and delivered a speech which was very model of brevity. The complete text of that speech follows:

“Thank you so-Oh no! Thanks so much. Um. Thank you so much! Um…I gotta go. Bye.”

Yep, she does gotta go. Into the history books.
