Conan O’Brien couldn’t have been more gracious as he left the Spreckels Theatre Friday. He stopped to talk to fans, take selfies and autograph tickets.

… Overheard from a homeless guy: “You know, everywhere I look I see Cartoon Network. But I can’t change the channel!”

… “Dr. Who fans are cheap,” complained one guy who sold a “Game of Thrones” autograph set for $200.

… Vendor: “My foot is so swollen up I can’t get it out of my shoe!”

… Sited in the “Star Wars” booth: Greg Grunberg from “Alias” and “Heroes” (he has a small part in “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens“)

… A volunteer parsing people through one of the many SDCC lines. “Thanks for joining us on the jungle cruise.”

… Random comment: “Comic-Con is like a drug. You know it’s bad for you, but you keep coming back every time.”

… And another, from a female attendee: “William doesn’t understand me because I’m all about the toys. I want to get them and I want them signed.”
