changing comments in wordpress

I'd like to change some of the ways comments display, but can't find info that makes sense to me (I've looked on the codex and different tutorials).

I'd like to, for example, take away "(the author) says" and just have the author's name. Or have the date but not the time.

Can this be done with an function and array? And if so, what would it look like?

The rest of wordpress is MUCH clearer to me now thanks to the developing a theme course, so thank you. But the comments area has me stuck.

Pretty sure you can set that up in the backend (wordpress admin panel) somewhere in global options you can change the way comments are shown and etc... I don't currently have access to a wordpress install or I would search for you but its in the setting somewhere.

Also you can always override those setting in the code and the codex would definitely outline that.
