Taking some human moments into this, you know, and on one level, it sounds kind of frightening that well. My doctor is going to do a better job figuring out what's wrong with me if if he or she has a chocolate bar before they see me, but on the other hand you know that is really just testimony to the power of human feeling and that caring for. The whole of ourselves is is actually every bit as important every bit as critical as as all the other things that we think of as the essence of providing and protecting for lives that you know providing protecting for that joy, and that human connection is every bit as critical as as you know, food and shelter, so it seems like the messages e Yeah Happiness takes a little work, but it's just a little work and that with a little effort we could all BE A.

"Plane are able to to sort of step back from that a little bit and put that into perspective and not let those little frustrations that absolutely everybody encounters. Not let them stand for the day. Not let them dominate their thinking. And you know, that's one of the things that you know, I think shocks people when I talk about. You know, happiness research is, you know, the general notion that happy people have some kind of magical existence where they they float between, you know, chocolate sundaes, and and and other delights and in reality, you know, happy people get stuck in traffic and happy people, you know, have some unpleasant co workers and happy people have all the same kinds of frustrations. But they're better at not letting those frustrations blackout everything else better at you know, being able to put things and just the tiniest bit of perspective to see say that, you know, even if traffic is really frustrating. It's not more important than the other twenty three and a half hours of your day. And we all know people like that. But do you think or does the science say that those people are wired that way, or that's a deliberate thing that they tried to do. Well, I think there's this kind of a combination here. I think that as we get smarter about the building blocks of of a good life that people. Can see the way the path to that. You know, I think some people are blessed to be wired that way, and they can they can happily go about you know, sort of shaking off the frustrations. And then, you know, a lot of us can can learn to approach things that way. And I I give you a perfect example of this. You know, breaking a routine, and no matter how trivial no matter how small breaking a routine, you know, contributes to a positive outlook and a and a more creative approach to what you're doing. So so what does that mean? Well, if you eat the same sandwich, you know at lunch five days in a row break, the routine if you go to work the exact same way every day break, the routine, go a slightly different way. If you know, if these are, you know, this is the the stuff that you wear to work, you know, every Monday break, the routine and wear a different shirt, you know, little things like that anybody could learn and put into practice and all of a sudden control. View to a slightly more positive approach to what they're doing. And and so I think I think the bottom line answer is it's both. It's there's some people who happened upon this. You know, by you know, by nature, and there's some people who happened upon a better approach to life by by reading books by by listening to your show by you know, thinking through what you know, what they could do very easily that would make them their lives. Just a little better. There's so much talk about the need for relationships human contact all of that. But wh why is that what is it that people get from that that makes them happy? What people everybody needs, including the introverts what everybody needs is the human reinforcement. They need. A sense of themselves relative to other humans that you know, that that puts them in something of a positive light. So what does that mean? Well, I give you my favorite example of something tiny that will contribute to a positive outlook, and is inherently human do something can be as minor is holding the door open. The next time. You're you're walking into a convenience store do something and kind for someone and everyone I don't care. How introverted you are. Everyone gets this this this little little ping of pleasure from this notion that even in that tiny little act, it's a reinforcing notion that I'm a good person look at that. Look what I've just done for somebody. And you know, that's the kind of thing where you say relationships come in all different shapes and sizes families do personalized do, but everybody has that need for that little bit of of reinforcing human contact. And that's why you know. Research is really not uniform on there's one thing that everybody needs except this. You know, they need they need that human reinforcement, no matter which way, you access it. And and the holding the door open is just one little thing that happens to apply and work for absolutely everybody. That's David Niven talking about happiness..

And is there a name for the opposite of neat cute s- in cinema because this is a meet cute, but it's really more of a meat tragic that we witness at the beginning of this film.

I mean, by the end of the thing, the audience was like in tears and Billy followed that. I see. So is the placement it was the place that was the problem is the placement when God and we, we all felt mortified and. There was no time to change it, and he was, you know, I just said, I'll go ahead and see he did it so it, but it wasn't. You know, it wasn't an obscene that we did have we many, many years ago. Richard Gere was going to present and it was after the gerbil incident and the we were going, introduce him as Richard which are going to present and his rigid pretension was five from American tale. Five will backed out. Joke and and Billy's was watching Bill. Richard sitting in the audience and there was a camera on him. And so he wonder, why is there a camera on? Because I'm not nominated and I'm not and Billy said, look at him. He's he's going to have a heart attack. I can't do it to just can't do it. So we cut it.

And there was title songs from the nominated movie. Of course, they had no title songs, but we would. We would take another song into a parody of it and the hardest was JFK because nobody wanted to be associated with the movie because it was all over stone and it was about that. And so one of the ideas that we had was trouble. You got trouble right here in Dallas, Texas with half a day between and it was written from the music man by Meredith Willson Wilson who was living in a home somewhere in in west LA. She had the rights and Gordon so we had to call her and sing. It billion Mark at the piano had over the phone, that story. And she said, very funny boys, no way. That was that right? And Finally, I mean, really we had a lot of ideas and and one of the other things was we were working on this particular number when Maria Shriver showed up with our camera crew for her NBC's show that she was doing and she's doing a behind the scenes, and we said, took her side and said, you know, we're doing the case section. Maybe you want to sit this out shit. Oh, no. Take it.

David Niven junior told me. David Niven when I interview seems perfect for the show. So after we'd had some some drinks, but the story was after the book came out, mama Urus. People start telling the Crawford stores. They'd never told, and a lot of them have to do is stuff. She admits she was drunk and which was a lot. And I knew her and I knew or. Drinker. I, I was a favourite interviewer of hers journalist, and so I then seven. She's always drunk in these interviews and David even said that when he came to Hollywood, he was fixed up with her on a studio date and they went out and. It was terrible thunderstorm and they, he can't took her home and it was made fairly clear to him that you know when you went on a date with her, you wound up fucking her. So.
