Notepad: Many of the answers in this crossword are too long and won't fit in the spaces provided. Each of these answers will either begin or end in the gray square immediately before or after it (or both). When the puzzle is done, all the gray squares will have been used exactly once, and the letters in them (reading left to right, line by line) will spell out an aphorism sometimes attributed to 41-Down.
Jim Horne notes:

The quote: A day without laughter is a day wasted. — [Charlie] Chaplin (attributed)
