I Love Television in general so any behind the scenes thing. I'm all in on so especially the Ellen show since I've been a longtime I am viewer of this show but I keep watching because of honestly because of all of Y'all and the relationship that you have with each other I mean for Crying out loud. We do really care better way to start our day than Lydia needs to be here every day. It was Wednesday a- and you can be totally honest because we're honest in this room. Were you a bit taken aback. At how heavy Kevin when their the moment where. There's definitely a moment where I'm like. Kevin is not exactly a full on Kevin's a handsome man. Very handsome diet pills. You know. This actually makes me happy. 'cause we sit in here doing this podcast and sometimes I really believe believe. It's for an audience of nobody. People listen people. Listen now that we can. We can do the podcast for Lydia Porsche. We know we're doing it for Porsche. My crazy to she look a little bit like Sarah when she gets older. May My daughter. She Sarala Yeah I when she came in I thought a little Lorber Talon maybe yeah interest maybe interesting also a compliment. Okay I'll take. I'll take tapings about that. who was on the show? I've been to three tapings actually ticket toss title so the first one was in twenty thirteen and Ashton Kutcher. Was the gas then recently saw Melissa McCarthy uh-huh a big deal and David spade so really knocked it out of the park with those are good taping three shows. No extra tape three interesting when you start watching Ellen. Oh I was in the third grade. My Gosh which I believe I season so my parents introduced us to Ellen with her here and now specials on. HBO Solid One right right before the US. Yeah that's how I became a fan of her because at that point I think it was eight years old. Thought it was funny And then I started watching the Ellen Ellen show on my little. TV In my room. That had the bunny ears so we got local channels just pause. The second que- industry was in third grill when we were all already already working fulltime third grade. And we're getting here and we're still here and she's gone and done a thousand other things. Yeah helping anyway go ahead so I started watching the show every day after school because I loved it so much and I love that she was making people laugh who the show so I would take notes on the funny thing. She would did you because I wanted to make people laugh just like she people laugh. I love this man neurotic do you have and in this is putting you on the spot. Then then we'll just edited out. Do you have a favorite moment or two that you remember writing down I'm I don't remember specifics. Because this is an eight year old taking notes so see now I think more of you than than the than yeah I do. Remember specifically on the Sandra Bullock moment where she hits on bad Santa and remember that still stunned just for about five years and she ate the pepper right exactly so I thought that was hilarious. I remember giant that down now. Did you ever want to go into comedy. Did you ever was that something you ever goal in. Life is always to make people laugh. Off that's what my get fulfillment from so comedy. I've always seen it as okay. You can either be a writer you can go into stand up comedy not really interested in in stand up comedy. I mean it's out to all the people who are horrible. Heart Cath so it's more on a local level. Not Me Right now comedy and through social media just like making people laugh. Will the person you're sitting next to over. There is head of all comedy ready at this show. He does that all. He's our head writers president of comedy producer. Some Tony Stuff you've seen on this show. You walk down the hallway and comes from me. He's a right uh-huh clearly failing also of course when you see like half the you you ought to take off of work. Yes yeah they do know that. I'm here it's a big deal. Boss made sure I was saying Girls Inc.. Think of Orange County girls in Kasese boss's name Jessica Jessica Yu like the employees the day leading adding Lydia. So thank you so much for that cell phone number down now area code. It's Ohio. Is that where you're from Where where Columbus Area Columbus Ohio daughter going right exactly Togoland which is not far? Yeah so when did you come to Orange County money for school so I was actually born in Dallas and then moved around a whole bunch of middle school. We landed in Ohio so I say I'm from Ohio but because because of that I felt like I could go anywhere school so then I heard Disneyland's fifteen minutes away from Chapman and I've been here ever sows your family. Still in Columbus part of them are My Dad actually lives in San Jose and my older sister's in Dallas. So we're sort of all split up. Okay we love Jack Hanna. Who of course was the Columbus Blue and we love? And we'd love Ohio we'd love Dayton the great city of Dayton. Ohio's one I'm going to grab a cell phone with me if you want to grab. A selfie with Komo sounded creepy. It's I'm used to it and she's not asking she did now. You're asking no Asked this like she told you about her. And then you're like oh I'd like it was GonNa Sweatshirt that sometimes you meet your heroes. Let you down the story of mine. There's nobody looked down. I I yes I did. What did you think I thought they were? Great I'm glad that parasite one almost all of the great i. I don't know if gal saw knives out this weekend. To people told me that I got to see it Yeah I felt like it should have been included in some of the Oscar nominations and but I'm really happy for parents when the people told you that you said you should see knives out. Did you offer to take selfies with them. Fans who told me to pokes. Did you see two popes. I watched that no good. I watch it on Friday watching stuff about the Catholic Church because I have raised Catholic and I have this sort of. It's really good. It's more of a human life. We're you know it's GonNa be about all the trouble looks better than I like the clips. I liked them but I thought I thought one of the most incredible movies I had ever seen was nineteen in seventeen. I have not have knocked my socks off shocked that it didn't get best director of World War One movie. It's it's a movie yes warm but it's more like a tale of these two guys journey. It's it's it's not like unbelievable. Yeah it's not like your standard war. Movie Denike Dunkirk or saving tourists. Who are Torah? It's basically two young men charged with delivering a message to the front line. And it's about following doing them to the front line and it's if you're saying you're sitting there in that room last night you know you're winning best director. You've got your speech ready you are. There's no chance you're not GonNa win and then you don't like it's just a lot of shots. Were the point of view. They built these giant Trent. Lott of it in one. Take Doc. That's cool. Yeah those videos take music videos remember. There was okay. Go okay go yeah. It's a lot like that domino's Domino's roses domino's their soldiers took sometimes with Andy. You got to find a frame reference that he can do and then the marble falls in the basket and the basket knocks don't like you what's slipped in a lot of these. Was Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton guess. What did you did you see that? Oh yeah thought it was great and knowing what she went through and twenty sixteen. I know how we probably all felt the day after everything happened so to see her. Be Able to speak so eloquently about everything. That's gone on documentary. I can't recommend enough watched comes to Hulu and March and just forget. Get the election like forget the election for a second. What this woman started doing in college the way she spoke up the way she was like singularly focused on advancing women and women's rights is just? She's incredible but it also talks about the election and the misinformation Disinformation and all that. But even if like even if she has a part in this it doesn't really matter to me like the way people hate on her is indicated it on her since her husband was the president it. Yeah just defies reason. Just it's just visceral people just don't like her and she's had had to contend with that was Obamacare Hillary Clinton. When Bill Clinton became president in his first term was trying to write healthcare in this country and I mean people people just did not did not appreciate it and and I think she is a great relationship with Ellen? And here's a little bit of Ellen. And Hilary Clayton and having a chance. Laurie hi I l on the last time you were here. You are sitting here saying that win your elected you're GonNa let us do our show in the White House that's right. I did say though. Yeah Yeah we didn't get to do it and get to know we did not but there is a different different kinds of show going on there is there is a show going on. I'm sure you're watching out talk to whoever's next and see if we can't get that done all right the deal. Yeah Yeah I wanNA yeah exactly me because I would like to do the show in the White House. Yeah Yeah Yeah I would love to do it. This is an answering to keep more dancing more Dan more dancing in the world. That's what we need happiness and dancing This is a big week. You're here the president was just a trump was just acquitted by the Senate of his impeachment. And does that surprise you. Did you expect that well. I wasn't surprised because it's a it's hard to get sixty seven votes to convict and remove somebody but I was still disappointed. Pointed that not more of the Republicans were willing to take the stand that Mitt Romney took Mitt Romney Romney. Yeah absolutely the extraordinary speech on the floor of the Senate talking about why. He felt the weight of history on his shoulders and that he was going to vote to convict on one of the articles of impeachment. Look the evidence was really clear. There was no doubt by the time it was all presented that actually the president done what he was accused of in fact. He admitted that he had done what he was accused of. He just didn't didn't think that anybody would hold them accountable. So we're now moving on but I hope that voters and Americans of all political stripes stripes actually pay attention and say to themselves. Hey you know. He has to be held accountable. And now the way to do that is in the election. Yep Yep Ellen on the go is presented by Disney's new original movie timmy. Failure mistakes were made a twenty one eight twenty Sundance Film Festival official selection about a young detective. Timmy failure in his partner. A fifteen hundred pound polar bear total in elementary school oddball the the clueless but confident. Timmy must navigate the world of adults around him all in his quest to become the best detective in the world. Timmy failure mistakes were made is now streaming only on Disney. Plus you know what was fun about the Oscars for me last night was seeing Diane Keaton. Diane Diane. Keaton is just Chris Stein. Keaton is. He's been on the show seriously like probably fifteen times a lot of a lot of a lot. I feel like she's never them sober. This is our seventeen season. And she's been on at least fifteen th yes just is she. She is hilarious and she is uniquely herself and and that's so refreshing in fun to see someone come on our show who is just from their own little planet and is Leeann podcast. Mind God in heaven. What did she do on this appearance? Mary played burning question. Play burning questions that was really good and she historically very much does not wanNA play Games Games on why she's nervous very nervous and I think she just thinks it takes her sort of out of I don't know she genuinely things also genuinely thinks she's not interesting. She thinks she's boring. She doesn't understand why we keep booking. It's almost like you have to do something. And then when he does it he ends up right. Yeah Yeah unlike that anyway. Here's ellen playing burning questions rollet. When was the last last time you had too much wine last night? Okay okay yet. It seems like you're winning already. Finish this sentence saying Keaton is. She's troubled naming young star. We're who style you love. I think I know who you're going to say. What are you saying? I think Billy Irish Amen. I just know you would like her. Her she's amazing. What is one thing you tried that you will never do again? A Kiss Chris Christoffersen. Do I leave now. I'm sailing know exactly with explain that he's a long time ago. It was a mistake. I think he was very attractive at the time. Time in and you'll never do it again.

It's Gooey what do you stick your life Jello Jello. You can't really stick your tongue in go there. No something like Bags soup that's congealed that that does sound sexy like a bad. It's the right it's got the right color. What are you talking about Green? Isn't that what. Now we should talk about zander hander. Zander I mean oh my gosh producer on our staff whose name is Chris Coochie Yup and Chris Coochie if he had a specialty. What would it be? I'd say Quirky. Yeah his specialty is Quirky. He's great where kids books magician. Would you say hang out. He occasionally comes comes down. Sometimes you can't make his feet work but other than that of super super has magicians in the Korpi stuff but also got the kids who were trapped in in the case he got the tie. Yeah ties soccer. Team just finds them and he produces them and so anyway books they all end up on his holiday card that but he I found this kid zander who he was unlike any. I mean we've had a lot of kids on the show. We had Sophia Grace and rosie increasing chance and this kid was unlike any other kid we've had on the show. He was a true a lot of the kids that we have on what they can do is memorize blog. And that's impressive. I guess you know I still can't memorize but this kid is just actually brilliant. He knows it in him and his thing is science and his thing is astronomy and chemistry a little a little bit of biology. Say that he said his interest was mainly in the solar system or the galaxy or outer space because it never ends. Yeah that's what he said right so then more more ellen asked him a question about the life cycle of a star. Gosh and I will life cycle of a stars complicated. Sometimes you win in an Oscar in your star rises Zander Zander head. This answer covered holy cow. Here's Ellen and ZANDER chatting Rollet Lydia. What's the life cycle of the star? Okay you lift.

And do some of the ask for it would suck up and lick thousand asteroids from from the ask you gotta hear the start over. Okay I'm listening go ahead starts to rotate the in that one. You also have to watch. Because as I mentioned his hair his hair asked horrible. And then Ellen did this hilarious thing where she called twitch in the middle of it which is reaction and what happens during all those big laughs right so funny. I'm so glad I had the idea to let her cubicle. Don't show yeah yeah. Nobody's way you come up with the idea to put twitch in a cubicle where no one could see to it that that scared me. There were a lot so multiple times between rehearsal and show. I pitched to the head writer. Who That day was? Not Kevin that maybe we just make it a little lower so we could see him and she resisted rested that Lauren pomerantz bless her heart and We just we just had faith in her and turns out they were right they were lauren. Help firm whose idea was it to get rid of twitches mine. EJ Mine Mine Writer. I can tell you who's it wasn't the writers but it's been years. I mean years at that equipment has done it is plugged in it is during rehearsal. There are the lights and there's Songs there that from two thousand six loaded up on them but that's all it does nothing but anyway I can you like it. Oh yeah I'm loving it every day. What's the the new booth Nice? That's what Kevin Kevin wanting. That's what he hopes for now. We should do one more thing here. Why should we should we talk about courtney the Delta Gate agent how inspiring we need right now we need her so so there's this gate agent at JFK? Who handles what they call premiere? Flights which I guess are cross country cross country to La. Very you know big marquee flight. Big Marquee flight and she takes to her microphone the the the the morning after the terrible helicopter crash that took Kobe Bryant and G G and seven other incredible souls and she. We knew that this this crowd about to board this plane might need some extra inspiration. And here's a little bit of what she said. It was just know that we're here with you and now that you have your life so there's someone you had his focus incident call them. Somebody had reached out to awhile. I don't know no no. We've got phone up and solar reach out Goto House now. You're you're never something great alleged. Remember the spirit is still always happy life commuting it and its Kevin said we need more of her in this. We need more of her now. UNBEKNOWNST TO US believe unbeknownst to US yes which which was on that flight twist gate area and heard that yes and she was Ellen's idea that was ellen's I've l. l.. Have you seen this on. CBS Morning News. I want this woman ellen loves. CBS Morning News. She loves Gayle King. She loves everything about CBS morning. News Allen sought on CBS morning news. And so we went out to this woman and we fell in love with her and this woman works for Delta and should this isn't the only species given she gives speeches regularly but this was an important speech that she gave and so we header on to meet her and get to know her and celebrator awesome. She's awesome. Here's here's a here's a little bit of her exchange with Ellen. I just think you're awesome. I I saw you actually on the CBS morning show. I saw that I then twitch told me he saw you and twitch was actually he was on that flight data. Yeah Yeah it was it was it was one of those honestly. I'm so glad that you're here. Because I gave you a hug hub before I go to fly. We didn't even know each other like that but like what she did was so special. Because as you know like that day was really devastated in a kind of leaves you in this place where you kinda questioning a lot right in your mind's going all these different places but your heart and your and your bold energy just is spoke with exactly what we needed to hear before we got on that flight. I'm sure you've heard from other people when you do things like that but it must feel so good that to know your you have an impact on people especially when they're getting on a plane no matter what day it is but especially that day. It's as soon as I found. A Co worker told me while I was working on another flight so felt like one by one the lights in the world. We're going out and I just had to bring the positive so I took fifteen minutes. I said it's time to shine now. Because they need me. La Needs me. The people need me in. Thomas Spread that light and give the love. And that's that's so grateful to be able to do it. That's what we should all remember number. I mean unfortunately sometimes it takes a tragedy like that to make us all remember that we better start shining our lights on other people in loving other people. Because it's it's very necessary but you spread positively you dance so what happens. Where do you go and dance in the airport for so as we know? Traveling is very stressful. Yes so once you get through. TSA HARDEST PART WE LOVE UTSA but the hardest part so somebody can go downstairs. duty-free the free there's a DJ playing right there. And I started dancing. You feel the vibe you feel the love and I actually do that on my off time. So that's not on my shift. I worked my entire Russia. I clock out. Oh there's dancing body so that's the one way to do. Aside from music is dancing. Is that universal language of I love. They feel it. We feel it in a lot of times. We don't speak the same language but when we're dancing it's one. Yep that's what does she lithium. That's our podcast works. What are your questions for us? Yeah you must know something about me. Mary crush honors seriously any questions nations. About how we do the show. I do want to know because this is now what you've done over one hundred podcast episodes but how how. How has your experience recording the podcast change from the first episode? Till now I feel like the first episode. We did in the music dressing room right. We're here we're here. We did it there because whenever Ellen God forbid we make ellen walk the a two blocks to the off I think we saw us rich with all the downloads. We thought it was GONNA make you. Don't get that much thought changed our lives finance finance. You know you have to remember. By the time we started the podcast. All four of US had been working together for what sixteen years already so. I think the relationship hasn't changed much. I think obviously absolutely the fact that became sort of the head host. No one saw that coming. It's unbelievable what I'm just saying. That they would then become just junior hosts didn't NC that but they fall in No I think I think like our relationship has always been we did not anticipate will first of all all this all seems like a hilarious joke that we podcast. I mean it's just like that's how much do you get paid for the podcast. Oh if I carry one in how many do we do we do to a week. Yeah and we've done over one hundred. Yeah so is zero. Yeah thanks Ellen. That's weird because I have some income from it so so it's hilarious that we have a podcast but we have a whole lot of fun talking about the show because obviously the show is so meaningful to us and it means so much and the four of us make each other laugh all the time we did not anticipate andy going rogue rogue and deciding to take this honest just his podcast. Yeah he really wants to be a celebrity and he's aging quickly so we're trying to they're trying to make me a podcast star. Andy Rooney Kevin very early on did not think think. I think we're all amazed that we actually still have this thing I like about it. Is We do sit in these exact chairs for all hours every day and this is basically what it is without the microphone right. Yeah we just speak to Mike and so and so the notion that people might like it when it's just what we shocking tim say kind of anyway is and you work with crazy people for seventeen years and still like each other is very very lucky we genuinely we care about each other outside of the office and we're really really lucky. We know we know that this system works we solve every problem that comes up or try to solve it from right here in this office. We spend more time together than we have with our Vegas and these guys sentence saying dinner to the room to my sweet before we went out to the clubs and you can tell show. What were you saying listening to the PODCAST? You can tell that you'll love each other and respect poke fun on each other. Yeah I wanted to set with the gods. What else what we what we might right? You know they. He refers to Handy and friends. We we think we might just call it insufferable with any last night true story. These are my only family friends. That's not true anything else that's true. Yes and you were at the Super Bowl recently and I follow you on on instagram. Yes obviously we all know about the slow walking. We know that I entered. The rear ended by walking in video. So imagine my surprise when I'm looking at your content from the Super Bowl and I see that you are slow walking in place. I spent two days trying to get to the gym at that hotel. That never happened and I ate so much bad food that weekend that we we were there so early that I said I'm just going to keep moving for a little bit stadium. I've decided is a good place to go for things. Just just being in a stadium you end up getting a lot of exercise going up and downstairs and you know when Kevin comes on me something. He usually carries me upstairs. But but yeah I felt like I need to exercise and I wanted to inspire the movement because when you're head of a movement like you have to think of the people even in the most exciting times of your life which is being at the Super Bowl. You still have to go. I have an obligation. Are you guys familiar with Deepak. Chopra Finish your thought. I just decided to walk. And then and the best part about it if you watch it. It's Kaelin making fun of me the entire time so that was enjoyable. Sometimes it's fun to just you see. This is let Andy Start talking. Just keep letting him talk right. 'cause weird happens just keep letting him know Andy. We haven't seen war of the worlds but thank God. You're ROSCA. Yeah so your question. What's Oh yeah so yeah? That's what I just want to know where you got the slow walking in place because that was my because I you are a bit bit bit. My submitted walking in place we picked and then he took it the material.

"Hi, it's Ellen Degeneres. Welcome to my podcast. We're gonna listen to some of the best moments from the show, and it's going to be hosted by four executive producers that I love happy listening on today's episode of Ellen on the go. Diane Keaton considers becoming a sugar, mama Milo. Ventimiglia catches onto our hidden camera. Prank Wanda Sykes doesn't let her kids fly alone in coach and ukulele prodigy FANG e blows our minds. I'm Mary Connolly. I'm kevin. I'm Ed Andy last nerve the captain of this ship. Welcome to our podcast. Nobody's Ellen on the go that way, we're going to you guys are selling your week happy Thursday. Hope your week is going. Well, whatever day, you're listening to this. Today's the last whatever part of the globe, you're listening to it. I know where international talk about today lot to get to. Yup. Yup. But I think what. Well, we should start with you know, we asked on Twitter if you had any yes sure did people have questions are executive producers and several things came up hundreds of times. No two hundred. Yes. Hundreds of things came up hundreds of anything many hundreds of topics came up once two topics came up hundreds of times hard to believe the first one is house. Mary's rash. That did come out. And that is so nice of you guys and many people were in on the joke, and some people I think are really worried about your ass. Right. Well, I appreciate that. Well, it's been talking about. Mary's rash. Almost on a daily basis. It seems a lot. He's obsessed with her. She's szeswith Mary and herash. Yeah. It seems. Yes. And they're our viewers who are genuinely concerned so right for their benefit. Do you want to give up on the show the other day Ellen sent some folks to WalMart? Yes. To to do integration to pick up groceries because WalMart now has a thing where you can pick up your you can order groceries and pick them up curbside and Ellen requested cream for my rash. And they brought cream very funny. But Mary, yes, sir. Once and for all, yes. Set people straight on the rash. I will. I have a bad rash. And I talked to Ellen about it and Ellen slipped one day on the show and referenced it, and then she was really really sorry. She ever did that she did that. So then we pretended to make a joke about it. But I I am I am in a constant state of discomfort. Yes. Unease with a bad rash? So I thank you. What are you doing? It's all it's Ellen's bit. I don't have a rash. I don't have a rash at all rash. It's more. It's kind of like a scab at this poll. Oh, gosh. I'm going to set the record straight here because I'm a I'm a I'm a believer in truth, married. Does not have a rash. Did not have Arash. There is no it's comedy. She's okay. I have a comedy rash. Guys right now. There was a couple here that I really. Oh, yeah. Okay. What does each of your rituals before a show? I have a white monster energy drink. Yeah. That's chant has a ritual hand that's about it on chill before the show. It's such a plan. Ammonium getting ready for to do a show every single day. It's like stress and panic. There is one thing that happens every single day like a ritual before the show, which is about twenty minutes before we start taping. Mary stands on a half box in the control room and runs through every beat of the show that is planned that we're about to tape. Now, some things aren't planned. And so every department is there, obviously the director, but also the producers of each segment throw cross people the sound people the camera people, and so this way everybody knows everything that is at this point plant, right? Then other things can. Happen in change within the show. But that least we all have a blueprint. Yes. My ritual is from the beginning from our first meeting in the day, people hand us papers all day long. And I hold onto every piece of paper that I'm given over the course of the day throughout the day because they have different versions of of material that we're working on for the day. And so if anyone has a new version, but once to refer back to the old version, I have a copy of that with me. So my little ritual that had loves Ed loves this ritual is right before we begin that control room meeting. I sort through all the papers. And I throw out the papers that I no longer need. And I am left only with the final versions of everything slowly methodically. Deliberately Mary goes through our papers. It takes me like about an hour hour and a half to do it. All right last question. This is a great question. I've really this is from from Skyla Ferguson Skyla, I should say not style here. Schuyler Ferguson too. To ask second who is the loud. Awesome laugh in the background of every show. Is that Mary? That's mary. Calm me. Mary has a healthy left. And it is pretty amazing because people think people don't realize that's a full on real life. And that sixteen years in Ellen still makes you laugh like sure, yes. I've, but people who know Mary go, oh, I hear your laugh all the time. So they know it's her, but that's a great question. Are there shows where you can tell instantly that Ellen is not happy with how it's going? Shows short answer. Yes. No. I think Ellen's mostly happy. Yeah. I mean, we, you know, we mistakes get made like any job. And I don't think he's ever dislikes the whole show, but you could tell there's moments where maybe we should have planned to I'll take this one on like, I maybe should have planned the game better. Like, maybe there's not a timer happening. It's just look. She looks at Mary like we'll there should be a timer here. Like, what's wrong? Right. Yeah. So those things I feel bad. But you know, we do one hundred and seventy of them and and each each show has seven axe. And so a lot of room from sakes lot of room for mistakes. And so we make mistakes, and then we we're actually pretty good at moving on from them. Once we make a mistake. But we often make a mistake in then we'd just try to make the best of it ugly. All right. So we talk about Diane Keaton Keaton, I love her more than I don't think that's possible. I think it comes by. It's an event. Yes. It's an event we're going to play a clip from we're going to play a clip from her appearance on the show. The whole interview is amazing. She sticks around for cooking segment. Watch the whole show in your DVR. But it's always magic when she stops by with L, and they have such a sweet, fun funny friendship. Here's a little listen, everyone thinks you had fabulous Darlie. Always had. I steered children. Follow you on Instagram. Don't know they have no interest in me. Really not in that way. Not in that way. They don't finally close. No, right. Do you have any men that are like an what are we talking about? Now like men like do they talk about when you say the man, I talk about the man, I talk about men men is there a man's front that you're and. And in my life. You don't have a man I could buy one of these maybe, but I don't see him out here. You could buy one of them. I can buy. I don't think that was your first sip of the day. But I don't have the right kind of money for that like to be a sugar mama to be like to take care of. What is the sugar, mama? Do though. It like you'd buy a condo or a house for him in a car and you take care of him. And he would be with you all the time, and in what capacity would he be with me, whatever you want. Well, when you have a sugar, daddy, what did they do sugar wise? That's sugar part. That gets me. What do I get? You know, is that a sexual thing. I'm the wrong one. But. I think. It's been so long. Now, I've had the sugar part of the daddy. Do you wanna talk about Kendrick Lamar? No, I do drink. That Kendrick Lamar. Great because I don't know areas or not I'm okay, I'll live. She was here. Promoting Ellen's green eggs and ham. And I was lucky enough to see a little bit. I'm sorry. I saw just a few frames of it is looking as ING I've got a little friend showed me some stuff. And how is it? The animation is so awesome. Diane Keaton going to be a voice, it's a a type of animated. That's never been used like ground break. No. And you say that for sources TV series. It's definitely like nothing you've ever seen. It looks like a feature film. Well, that's amazing. And Keaton is just she's like if she's a comedy legend. Yeah. Sure is so amazing actress, and then she is so deft with comedy, and she is so her own person doing her own thing. I really admire her, and she has a obviously, she is a tremendous sense of style. I just I love it a PC, essentially. So we decided to keep her out for Wolfgang puck who is going to teach Ellen about how he cooked for the Oscars. And here's how that went ROY in a little garlic. Golic. Do you know? You know, how to do? Make tacos you make that. I'm good at it. That's the only thing you make tacos that's about. All right. So be put that in. Maybe you Kafer neon expert the Mehta I'd never seen Capers like that. The little tiny boat. The dining balls are truly the bottom before the flower. Oh, and this feeds you can see here. Yeah. So this is after flower become like that confusing. I thought pretty confusing actually everything is her anybody has been out there. All right. Listen that you buy. If I open, I call you Tony. You can do that. Kind of pasta we making gonna make they'd pas here. Do you think he'd become friends? We can buy more than friends. Happening here. Okay. It's enough to show. But it's okay. Wants food. That's like an aphrodisiac that she could cook. Oh, she knows people want like be next to each other wouldn't you feed them feed them? Okay about that. You can have breakfast in bed. Make some. Ten somehow aid that we don't spend too much. I would be after I'm talking about the before we get into this into bed. You gotta get them there. What's the if you know how to cook something as simple? Keep the steak or whatever he likes clarion. Okay. Perfect. Make him this pasta. It's gonna happen. Giving more energy told her story. Tonight. Then he's not gonna be able to do that. So Milo Ventimiglia. Oh, okay. All right. We talked about things that go wrong. Yeah. Here's an exam fine example of something that didn't go the way we thought it would. But also how like it's just how we do things we roll with it. We we have no choice take everybody through the process the process with Milo Ventimiglia say Michael Ellen in your ear. It's where she has the earpiece in the celebrities ear, and they. Yeah. Whatever she says. Well, this time we tried to switch it up. We put the Europeans in one of our writers ears, and we had her pretend like she was a page and welcome Milo Ventimiglia when he got here in his dressing room, and we sent her in with Ellen or ear to make sure everything was fine Milo being the very nice guy. He is my gosh. She was such a sweetheart. Oh, he was patient. But was like she was acting. So crazy that you could tell he was like why gotta get this person out of my room. He was so deft it how he worked to get her out of the room when her really realizing just backed up against the door yet. Slowly, just think so nice to meet you the entire ore. Nice to meet you.

Ellen tells her to say, I'm gonna get fired. If I don't check the water pressure in your bathroom. So good. And he's like, Yep. Note. Don't eat it. I'm good. Then Ellen comes in. He had such patient, then Ellen comes into to see if she can further the bit, and and he's defending Bente. He like it was so amazing how he is trying to make sure he thinks Ellen is going to be. Where they go. And he's taking up for our staff member L is been in his face, you sweet as you think Ellen kept trying to leading him to say something bad about Bente who is acting like a crazy person like just a really annoying person. And he wouldn't do it. He would not do it. He protected her. Throughout the whole thing. Here's the entire thing. But you have to then promise me, you'll go watch it because his facial expressions. You can see him getting annoyed. You can see him being like, okay. I just have to figure out how to get her out of here. And then he does in the nicest way glasses bright. He's a pro he really surest and the nicest guy. You're back with Milo Ventimiglia who was one of the nicest guys around.

Literally, turn the podcast off there. We're gonna beg you. Did you become someone tweet? I just wanted to mention this. I saw someone tweet to all four of us either today or yesterday said it really upsets me that your podcast isn't on a YouTube channel. 'cause I would love to see you guys. Doing this podcast. We have a producer Daniel he's in the room with us. And and you know, we have mentioned to him several times that we should probably have a camera on the podcast. I can only assume he thinks that one of us is not attractive enough. No, we're so we were just thinking. I think he might think we're all not attractive. He said you guys got good faces for podcasts. Yeah. I've seen him husband. That's definitely true. Well, why don't we try one? And see if there's a reaction turns out, the reason Daniela's and video videotaping us because nobody is interested in it. He's received official word. No one wants to see hard past. I don't believe it. I believe we should put up one on the Ellen YouTube channel and Ellen tube. And see what people say, you know. Let's do it. Let's make sure we have a couple of days notice. So Kevin can have his spanked John have some makeup. But yeah, I just thought that was cool that people listening. Mr. judging other people's bodies. That's what I have to do before, you judge mind. But yeah, I thought that was cool that people wanna see all of us. Nice. Maybe we'll do it. One time. Be careful what you wish for true. Just one episode let we'll let us know do it over in the band room. If you're listening listening tasks state secrets in this room that we don't wanna have get out.

Oh, Julie Bowen, Julie Bowen, always shows up ready to just dive in just dive, just ready. She shows up with the energy and the enthusiasm of few guests I've ever seen. She is just ready to go. And we'll end to do anything and willing to do anything. She even showed up to get into a box and hide and scare Blake Shelton. Yep. She recently got divorced. And she said that she's not interested in dating. But what she is interested in is trying new things every month to new things a month to new things a month. So we helped her out one of the things she wanted to do was really scare someone on the Ellen Degeneres show, and that's not for the faint of heart. You have to get a no tiny box. You have to be ready to hear accu- from you know, from Ed what time the perfect time is to do the scare and because he has a microphone into your little ear. And when he says go, you better bust out at that very moment. And so it's stressful. So she gets so she does it she arrives. And she arrives in a beautiful outfit beautiful wardrobe all Lambda up for television appearance. And then and then climbs into this box hides in the dark in this box in a table, that's really really really tiny. And she's an IFP and ear. So she can hear me and the whole time Blake is out there. He he is the first person I've ever seen do this. He just got so comfortable, and he's a big, dude. He just put his arm on top of the table that ended up being the box that she was hiding it just kept dropping his arm onto it was driving her mad. Yes. And we couldn't scare them until he moves his hand off. That whole thing would have been right. Yeah. Catastrophe. But God bless Ellen. She figures it all out and she gets him to get his hand off that box. And then. Here's that moment when Blake Shelton was talking to Ellen. And and something happens. All right. So speaking of things that make you happy. I have a question for you. And this is serious. I want you to pay attention. Okay. You got serious. Okay. All right. Gwen Stefani, good. What I wanna know is. Are you gonna marry her? That's one. You know? So hot in there. He's heading on the top of the big. This. I was going to head. Julia had to get his arm up the whole time his arm was on it. And I was like how do I get his arm off? That's why I had to lean over this way. God bless you.

But then she started one night. And I was like, no, I'm not into it. And she watched on our computer after I would fall asleep and like in two weeks. She watched every episode like stayed up to like four in the morning. She became obsessed with it and could not wait for this season. But so she so excited and now it's their final season and one of the actors John Bradley who plays Sam well Carly came on the show, Ellen loves the show. He's he's just so we're clear I've I watched the first three seasons of game of thrones. That I haven't watched the rest of it because Debbie, my wife has an hasn't been dying to watch it. So I wanna watch it when Debbie's ready to watch it. But this guy's been on season one. I mean, he's been. He's been on this show the entire time. It's a miracle. He's still alive because sooner or later everyone dies on. Yeah. And he was amazing. Yeah. First appearance on our talk show hasn't done a lot of talk shows period. This was his first acting role in his life, and what a sweet fun funny guy. I should say, you know, our he's a code producer now and our senior talent executive Corey palate. He he he watches game of thrones. So he knows these you know, he knows just how epic. I mean, I, you know, if you there's a blog I follow online deadline deadline Hollywood. And I read it every day after game of thrones airs, just because I enjoy a good rating story and game of thrones as juggernaut, and they're just aren't many left in this world of streaming and a million different options. I mean, it has almost eighteen million viewers just Sunday night. The second episode of this last season of game of games and people were calling it. The most tweeted about television episode of anything in history. I it, you know, it's big deal when the people who don't watch game of thrones like myself here through. Social media here through the news here through just talk around the office that something insanely huge happened on the show that it was a major major major event. So that even as I don't watch it. I know that it was up, right? And last Sunday night was epic. And then we get to have John Bradley on a just a couple of days later. So it was very very exciting for all the game of thrones people. Okay. So that was actually from the week before. But the the one that aired Sunday was man. Oh, man. That was stressful to watch. It's pretty stressful. Right. Yeah. Stressful for me too. Yeah. The only seen any of it. Rarely I sold it for the first time on Sunday. Yeah. We had a screening the Chinese the Hollywood. And you know, the reaction that the episode got was just overwhelming. Yeah. It was. Yeah. Because when people are in the dark, and they were the laws group of people they feel kind of on this. So they don't mind being super responsive very very vocal screaming, lots of screaming gas gasping had my girlfriend next to me. I'm I'm not tell anything about the episode. And I still have the nail marks. Doesn't hold fingernails in my off. Well, you probably can't tell her anything that you shoot. Right. Do you? Sometimes are you able to know I think that was she's a twos fun of the show. He doesn't wanna know. No. She wants to experience those moments the way everybody now were you? I don't think you should've survived. Do you? I mean, I don't know how you survived that. There was there was people die in all around. He when somehow you survived the entire thing on didn't think I was gonna survive because you you're always going to look in looking at the script for the episode kind of worn. I open. Yeah. You're so you're so nervous. And people say, oh, some some Deutsch sums to important to beloved. You know, you just think don't you watch this show? Have you never seen this show before kind of important and beloved doesn't matter to no, no, nobody sacred. Nobody's going to say from game of thrones. And, you know, people say things like, okay. My thrones is one of those shows where all your favorite characters die. I'm like what does that say about me? Right. That's true. But now do you stick around to the do, you know, how it ends will? I full I knew it was going to end. And we definitely saw an end in could I can tell you that I read it in of you with showroom. There's not long ago when they said the think they know how he's gonna wind. So, you know, actors paranoia instantly. Yes, does that mean that you don't know? I don't know what I know. Right is true. 'cause he may be just saying that to make you think you don't know. But you may know, I'm militantly. No. But you may not gonna know the, I know, I know I know right? I'm with you. Let's talk about million dollar may shall we? Love. It's a riot million. Yeah. You never know what you're going to get or how much you're going to get how you're gonna get it. And I know so I don't know if this is to inside. But we we have this partnership with WalMart Ellen has a brand that sells at WalMart. We got into the one we got into business with WalMart a couple of years ago when we wanted to find more ways and more vendors to help us help people who were in need, not just people people schools, like all kinds of times in ways that we wanted to help people who could use a leg up and who felt like us like they deserved it like they were inspiring in some way, and they and they pretty much agreed with no strings attached. And one of the things they did a couple years ago was we gave an entire class of students high school students at summit academy. I believe in Brooklyn New York full four year scholarships to state any state university of New York. Correct. That that was like to the tune of about three million dollars. And it was just such an amazing event. And it was so impactful, but WalMart reached out to us this year and said, it'd be fun to do something big where we're helpful where we you know, sort of pay it forward to the tune of a million dollars. If you guys have the right idea, if you think you have the right idea, let us know 'cause we'd love to. Part of it, which is really amazing offer that, you know, thank shows shows, you don't get right. So we come up with the idea for million dollar may where we take people who are doing good things, you know, in their hometowns and their communities and their families, and such and we give them a chance to win an immense amount of money and even losing you still win something, but you could win an incredible amount of money. So yesterday or last week we had this family on? I I will I will just use the first name of the of the central woman in the store. Your name was cheering Jiang came from Kenya. She emigrated from Kenya. To america. She lives in south bend, Indiana with a host family her parents are back in Kenya. Her brother lives in South Africa. She hasn't seen any of them in over a year one of them. She hasn't seen in two years, and we fly and she learned English partly by watching the Ellen show. She watched out on YouTube back in Kenya. So we fly her to LA car HOGAN produce the segment for us. We fly her to L A. Secretly fly her parents and her brother in from two different parts of Africa and fake alive shot with surprise her with a live shot for parents in Africa. They're actually backstage and then surprise her with her parents. It was absolutely phenomenal. And then after all that was said and done we played a game for million dollar may which we absolutely were not gonna let them lose. Yet. Taylor say it was terrific and Carla did a great job producing the segments. What made you move to the United States? So I moved here about five years ago with the grace as my host family, and I moved here for higher education and. Sorry. That I'm here. But it's been amazing. And it's been really hard for my family back in Kenya. Because of honestly done every single thing that they have from selling land to taking loans boring money to be able to, you know, pay my school fees. But also just make sure that I'm comfortable fill in Kenya. And you work how many jobs do you work here? Okay.

And then I also teach English to international students and some of the DACA students in the south bend area. But that's all that's all you do. That's incredible. All right and your family members. So it's your who's who's there? Okay. So it's me, my my older brother Churchill, and then my my dad, and my mom, and they're all three in Kenya. My brothers in South Africa. Okay.

And so my parents are helping about ten plus kids from our family, but also like from the village that they live in. So they're paying for their school fees like uniforms books, all that fun stuff. That is incredible. Yes. All right. Well. We. We set this is I can't believe that we were able to do this. We sent a camera crew to Kenya and South Africa. And so let's see if we can. All right.

Anyone who's ever struggle with the way to is going to understand this okay. You Ca what I've done in the past. If I've done the hard work, I've done it to lose it and then I, when I hit say this is my goal I'm going to get to this and then I do to myself is I reward myself and you know what I reward myself with.

So I'm talking to therapist I'm talking to nutritious and I'm talking to a weight watchers.

Why and I'll tell you why and it's not funny. You're ready for that laugh S it's not going to be funny. Okay I don't know why I needed to put a disclaimer for that. I mean that's another thing got to dig into but here's the truth. The truth is this. When you are around death, you learn things and if you don't learn them, you're not paying attention and I have been lucky enough to hold both my parents as they died and what I have seen. And I know to be true is that at the end in your final seconds? MINUTES HOURS EAT is you and. Your Body. That isn't People can be around us but in those at the end, it is you and your body or reconciling the end of something, right? And so I I can't stop thinking about that and I. I I started this journey and when I hit two hundred I, which was my first school I looked in the mirror at my body I was just I was naked anyone WanNa, take the Dick's out or okay. But I was naked and I looked in the mirror and I looked at my body which is so imperfect and I looked at a smaller version of the imperfect body that I've had sent. You know because I put on. After Momma and and Kobe and everything. And it was it's smaller and it, but it's you know lumpy and there are stretch marks and they're an I looked at my body and I just got so emotional I said to my body, my head said to my body. I am so sorry for what I put you through I am so sorry I didn't treat you better. I'm so sorry I. Apologize To my body and then and then I think about what your body is and those last minute second hours you can't control everything cancer will come heart attacks will come strokes will come you can't control that but. I can do my part. I can eat my body half way and treat my body with the same respect that I would treat another human. And that's what this journey's about. This is the reconciliation I'm having with myself. He's like you need to treat yourself with the utmost respect when you fuck up but just in general and so anyway, that's not funny but it's the truth and I'm. Doing so much work on fuck I did not mean to go into that. You know I think it's really important because I have a lot of life coach clients that are dealing with this exact same thing. Really important for them to hear and for me to hear we all have the the way we talked to our bodies. In the way we talk to ourselves.

I think this show needs some people We spend a lot of money and hire fancy Hollywood publicists get booked on the view or the you know late night program, Andy Cohen, something like that I.

What are you know what I mean? That doesn't mean we still can't find untapped markets. You know what I mean find maybe demographic. That isn't listening to our program is demographic that hasn't yet joined the kiss club dot com for less than seven month all of that content and what listener victor has been able to do is identify one of those demographics and go yes and it's a demographic. That is very dear to me. Listener Victor. Was Walking what looks like through the countryside somewhere and you can see this view the kiss kiss. Club DOT COM. SPOTTED, deer. Under a tree. Y-?

Shot. Like. Give me. Josh Wolff. So good and I'm GONNA put in the runner up box I'm GONNA throw in a Franjo. Chris Financial. Fortune teams are Heather Sarah Cologne I mean listen. We're so lucky on lately the. Though, I was allowed to be on with the other Gal's I only got the guys. Like. I was I only was on once with other women I was once Sarah Fortunate was which was great but I was friends with all of that but it was always it was always. So whenever I heard, I was on the panel with you. I was so excited it was always so fun and I feel like. I've always been rooting for. You have always really liked you. I really relate to a small town with like stars in the eyes and and being a fan like I'm a fan of pop culture and I feel that like I S- kindred spirits to absolutely kindred spirits. You're like people from the get from the go and I know you got to you got introduced to Cj Malone and Nicky as we as we were at the commercial break, then I know and so so now got you of all before but you are instantly family of the program because I know we all vibrate right about here. Gang tells Maggie you are super of pop culture. In fact, you have a podcast that is about what I've a bachelor podcast is he's very hard hitting political, but it's like NPR. Except this rose it's on Iheart or wherever get your podcast. It's so fun. I watched the bachelor with Bachelor Super Fancy Comedians we don't hate watch it when we do make a lot of jokes about it. Watch, the. Bachelor. ACT OVER THE YEARS I'd Like we'll be a dream, a dream participant and you're like. I've just just come over. I'm now in the House Webs I'd never done house is I'm deep in now let's Talk I. Remember when you started this podcast, will you accept this rose which has become the definitive like? Fan Bachelor podcast if you like the bachelor and you like to laugh, you need to be listening to this podcast when it was first starting artery judge me. So I was like, well, you come on the pocket and I said. You're like top of the list like Gimme Ross I was like I don't watch the bachelor and I'll tell you what I know that I would love it and I watched it one when I was doing Hollywood's Day lives that show we were covering the like fuck I gotTa Watch. US and I didn't hate it but the bachelor is like the one because I watched truly shit. TV IN FACT I. Truly Shit. TV sometimes. And I, I. But it's the one thing that I can sort of look down at other people. That's your own. Now, I don't watch that. Tell I felt when I I I never watched to like five years ago and my husband going moment, and he was like you need to watch the bachelor and I was like. I have a life I. Think this trash program or I'm not GonNa Watch the bachelor and he was like there was some twists that night using apparently you sound really up your alley you should really like Oh. All right. I'll take a break from watching you know like who like not even survivor that's too highbrow way way like lower than that. 'cause my tastes like a ninety day. Fiance is Abou as like quality as I want yes. Yeah. I will tell you this who I watched it and then I was immediately because let me just pitch this Jira which bachelor was your first Bachelor Caitlin Caitlin Bachelorette. TASTIC and here's at my pitch I. I know it's shocking. All of you I'm sure I'm sure it'd be shocking for us. I've never played sports. Really everyone give us a second to recover. Hawks, but I'd never watched sports. So I never had the thrill of watching something and going who's going to go to the finals who's going to be drunk I who's getting a hometown? So we do full draft picks I don't read spoilers. We look at the photos we try to figure out WHO'S GONNA be the secret drunk train wreck who's going to have the the brother that like mouth kisses everybody when they for the home. So I like it sort of in a gaming aspect I am what I want people to fall in love but it sort of gaming of figure out who's GonNa make the regionals nationals like stay all I know I didn't do that in order I understand here's the here's this. Here's a suggestion. I want people to not only start listen to your at your show now your pockets now but if you go back to watch pass bachelor seasons, you can go back and listen episodes of will you accept this now? I also WANNA throw maybe I'm throwing the gauntlet down here maybe on challenging both of us today better. Arden. Yeah. What if what if we lived in a world where? Next Bachelor or Bachelorette. I committed. To watching it and we introduced me on the program as be gentle. He's the Virgin. We have rookies. We really take. Would you like to be our? This season I'm telling you that I would consider when would a new bachelor? When is it about for asking? There's there's okay it's and it's going to be unusual. So I think it'd be it'd be fun for you because. It. It's a whole new format because of the pandemic it's starts, October. Thirteenth. And let's do that made you Hannah God. Panic did so you can think about it. So it starts to thirteen they took over an entire resort. In Pasadena. Out in Palm Springs were speaking my language like one hundred and twenty degrees keen tell like that five resort community they have the like they're like the NBA bubble they do like Tyler Perry NBA Bachelor. Hilarious because. If. You don't know the NBA they sort of like now you're in the bubble. You're here for a few weeks you cannot leave no ins, no outs, and that's what they do. And it's been, it seems like it's been working. So I've question for you. I'm intrigued about this October Thirteenth Bachelor nation is on the edge of their seats. I. Okay problem at this is that no I want to tell you this part of this is the truth I think giving I, eat the dark meat if you know what I'm talking about yes, and until personally, I've never truly been attracted to any of the bachelors there. To Sleep, they're having the first black bachelor. That's the one I want. Okay. So He's Matt James Starts. They're they're going to film it soon, it'll probably start in January but here's a little spoiler. Here's a little spoiler. So the lady said there is this whole thing to bachelors were getting too young everybody was getting like more like twenty three. So they brought in like in bachelor world like an ancient lady she was thirty eight. Now she's thirty nine and basically she. So I think she found love like immediately and allegedly they like. Her four episodes and this beautiful young lady who was a contestant who should have been the back they should have picked her from the get-go Shah who is as beautiful lack ladies like smart and coal and I suspect they're not gonNa make her pick from the same. Kula. Guys that this thirty nine year old white lady like you might have some cute contestants. Well, I'll tell you this I just googled Matt James the Bachelor blocking high he's the hottest bachelor. They've ever had oh my God. How? was never a contested. So he was best friends with the hottest bachelor they ever had. This is the hottest guy ever? Oh my God. Apparently, he's really nice. He's stunning. Who Cares if he's nice. Guy. He's so so hot is own my God. There's one with the shirt off. James. Lee Rookie in two, thousand, twenty one and do magic because. Because I couldn't make because I. Think I want how hilarious that I refuse to really watch until they have a black bachelor Kastari that's what I like. I like an but really it's like a moral stance but really, it's just really hot, right? Right and it's like. Two birds wants don't kind of thing. So yes, I will commits to Matt James The hot bachelor starting in January ish. All right. Yeah. I can't wait your rookie I will. We'd here it's been debby Ryan. Beverley D. Ngelo and then this year we have jerry trainor first-rate male recruit from my carly. You're going to be our rookie for twenty twenty Wa Beverley D. Ngelo. Angela I. Love by the way side note Beverage di Angelo is a great actress who was like she was the mom in in big Chevy chasing. Also, Soda shows been nominated for support best supporting actress in the Patsy cline movies dreams Lang was nominated just no. Well, Jessica Lang was dominated for Patsy cline and she played no hold on. No Cohen are. That's what I'm doing my. Daughter, she should've for Patsy. Kline OC mixed the Patsy cline CA. Her career that's what put on was so good in coal miner's daughter and should have been nominated for supporting actress in that. So good I'm all her she's not rookie there are some.

Dang ak any hall and on my on my other to my, she was my right to my left was Harrison Ford. Aka indie Aka Han Solo okay. Because they're in the movie together you have to watch morning glory. By the way, Rachel McAdams couldn't be sweeter. Okay. I'm between Harrison. Ford in nineteen and again, it was sort of like a day. Where was a long day? We're all at this conference table together and like you just couldn't get up. So in between Diana and I worked chatting Harrison is mellow. He's very sweet but he's like really quiet and I think he might smoke a lot of pot and he's just his energy. Very Melissa. Sort of intimidated me Kinda left him alone. Very nice.

Me Not want some lucky charms on that because you could trip three. WHY WOULD I? Remember Buffet understood doesn't have to be nice. So we care about. So she loves soup plantation to which was shocking I know that she'd even heard of it. So then convention looking up from sue plantations a place where it's like kind of sizzler but lots more soups and we didn't have a coupon I always use coupons it's worse normally thirteen dollars, but you can get it for six, nine, thousand, nine a lot. Can you imagine being there and be like, oh, it's split pea day unlike scooping your soup and then looking up. and seeing Diane Keaton on the other side. No I see Martin Landau once A. But. Okay, but Diana's is very much amongst the people like she's not about Hollywood and all that she's very, she wants to get out there with the people. So I understand that she would go to sue planet I wouldn't be shocking if there was Diane Keaton's sitting there. So Danke. Car I. was talking about how? We were some we been bonding. We've been like she had had our stuff in the battling Diana starting to become friendly, and now he's telling her I'm like my worst most panicked moment was I was starting to get to know the magical any man who wrote the Magnolia Soundtrack and she was like so. soundtracks ever yet. The lead singer of till Tuesday and she and she's married to Michael Penn who Sean Penn's brother and he did the he's like a musical score. He did the girl soundtrack I mean, so they're like amazing. The coolest people I know I. I knew her a little bit and one day she was like, what are you doing today and I said I'm going to sue plantation Beverly eleven am Lo and behold I looked out the window and Aimee Mann and Michael Penn was dressed like. An Edward Gorey character, and like a morning coat these showed up they came and I'm like and you could see them maneuvering around with their trays like they're Jello and they're all kind of looking at what is like what is happening here? So Diane and I were laughing about like the my panic of like the coolest person I've ever met. Hawksley. Wanting to be friends and showing up at bug and supertalk high and then to my left I hear I hear Han Solo, wake up and go. What is soup. Ross. Picture you've met him picture Harrison Ford asking you to explain to him. The panic of. explained. What's Important How well, it's like a discount solid chain, but there's a bar. And the all you can. Like I nervous glut I was terrified I is starting like how do you get out of that and we? lost. Him a discount salad. I felt that I in some ways because I showed that I wasn't super cool in front of like indy I felt like I lost anti a little bit in that moment. I couldn't be cool with the a-list I wanNA know your thoughts on baby boom just in general. The movie. It's I I is a movie I quote all the time like the I seen it. God. Do. I need to see. Do I need to see that when you come on? For Matt, James Here's the deal. Here's a deal. You must watch baby boom is iconic Diane Keaton Zanies Strike and writing it down under you being rookie for twenty twenty nine. So their audience is no I've never said publicly, but you know you get this question a. Question like do you ever want kids? She writes you wrote it down people. Asked me do you ever want kids and I always say the same thing in my head. But I, I never say it out loud because I was talking today about that. Never let people know this because I think it'll drive no one will understand it but I always ask If I WANNA have kids. Hey, russ do you do you ever think about you? WanNa have kids well I. Just assumed that one day I'll get call in the middle of the night that my distant relative in England will die and then give me their baby and then all struggle to keep my job and eventually just moved to the country, but I'll make. And turn that into a big brand country baby home in Cleveland I don't think so I wanna say that because that's the plot. That's a lot maybe but I'm afraid of people would just glaze over you know Nancy Meyer movie it sound in buying Nancy Meyers. She wrote and directed at is just like that one with that's just like with you and McGregor, and then we have ourselves Cameron Diaz but it was just all about the rental house they go to England it was Jude Law Jude Law and Cameron Diaz and Kate winslet and Jack Black. It's called the holiday Yah she also did it's complicated yet also did something's gotTa give with Keaton I was in what women want with. The yeah. You were with Helen Hunt and Mel Gibson and Mel Gibson pre sugar tits pray free sugar test or anybody knew he was charming. Charming was he? By the audiotapes he was really nice. He he he was Nice he was gentlemen Lee. He Grill he had like. I don't like be smear whatever company it was, but they were so cheap they would like they had no catering and they would literally lock the. This was a big budget movie they would lock the. Craft Service, like put a padlock on it. He. He actually had like a hibachi grill outside his which would have been nice anyway but we're talking people were not being fed and he interesting hibachi grill outside of his trailer Emily Cook for the crew. So I gotTa Tell You my experience. Then when sugar tits I was like, ooh. That was bad. Then, a lot has come out and you're like, oh, by the way, how is he not cancel? He's still nominee for best director. Botchy for everybody around town I don't know. Franken along in the Senate. Photo but this I don't know. So and Helen Hunt was on that what women want it's a good movie when you watch it back, it's a little dated in terms of like how the men versus women thing. Right. But it's entertaining. It's not about how was Helen Hunt. I think she was right. She was very nice. I remember it was right when. I think like like she was getting like it was like someone used Schema like I will say though like even within all of that, she was really nice and I remember thinking like I I remember having compassion for her like oh This is your life and she's still showed up and was really nice. You know couldn't have been easy. Listen. The none of these stories are are in this book and you know my book is my first book was about my growing up. You know the second one was about like silly Hollywood stories right I have a story about kicking Courtney Cox in the face. Of that story and I love about this this new book, Little Miss Little Compton, and the cover is so cute and I have to say when art sent it, sent it to me only to come with the tote bag and like bookmarks that came with a puzzle all in them I mean listen she went all look at this puzzle. My sixth. Grade Photo. Doing a giveaway if you go on my grandma and you tat you, there's pictures of the book. If you tag the book, He say why you want to read it he post it. I'm going to give away three full bundles to people who I love that everyone follow Arden Arden Marine, but it's a R. D. E. N. Y. R. I N. Ardent has pronounced marine, right? Yeah. It's like marine biologist isn't drunk Swedish name. It doesn't look like that. Well, when I love about the book is it really starts talking about your parents and you know parents are very very important to me. You know and you know I lost my mom recently arden reached out to you because it's been what a couple years now since you lost your mom JJ, my mom died last year last March and then my dad was the year before it was like back to back. Oh my gosh. Will you start the book with their Love Story and I love how they got together? Will you tell the audience? Okay. So my parents and this was like I wanted to write the book because. You know I feel like everybody I think everybody's sometimes still slightly different or feels like like everybody has a certain hand of cards that they're dealt and there's quirkiness and so here's my quirky hand of cards, my parents, met New York City William J. Marine and and they were co workers and they never went on a date but one new year's. Eve all out for cocktails having some fun and everybody at their work got two weeks vacation a year. But then you went on a honeymoon, you got an extra two weeks of vacation and my dad being the little rascal that he was. He was like they try to figure out a way to like fuck the man and they're like Ok. Guess What Janna? How about you and I get married I'll take you on a four week vacations to South America you and I can come back and then we'll get it annulled. And then so they looked my mom agreed they looked for a Bible to swear on they couldn't find one. So they swore a cookbook and then the next day my mom called him back and she was like I will do it but I don't WanNa get it annulled and they stayed married for fifty years. They had a proper wedding like six weeks later. They went on a month long vacation. My mom had a date the next night that she went on and she said she made out with that guy like crazy because she knew it might be the last she ever made out with and apparently he called later he called later in the week and her roommate's like genus engaged and the guy was like pest. CARE stay. Married till the end of the. Years. Dare between coworkers is looking for a vacation. I exist. Genetic, Roulette just picked her you and. Berry from HR again together. Making a live together. We got married. We're in it to win it. Your. Did your parents ever get to read any of this book like how you had written life to get now? I found out like it was sort of bittersweet like I was trying to sell this thing for a long time and I knew there was interest but I was waiting to tell my mom because I didn't want her to get her hopes up because I wanted to bring her on tour with making sure. So bossie I want her to like give advice to everybody rate. You need a bleach, your teeth like girl go get a throw pillow or whatever, and so she liked that. and. So I wanted to I was waiting to tell her and. I was filming insatiable and we got this nobody could find her nobody could get in touch with her like she just died making breakfast just passed away and so I went home and I was you know it was a tiny town I grew up in this little teeny teeny tiny town with a general store and no stop lights in Rhode. Island who was like a two minute drive to the church and on the ways name Little Compton Rhode Island. The book Little Masters Title Little Compton, and I got this email on the way to the funeral the morning of the funeral i. get this email that says, hope you're having a great week. We can't wait to do this book with I sold the book all the way to my mom's funeral. That's divine intervention. It really wasn't I actually feel like it was sort of a strange gift in that. She was barely in the proposal really because my dad is sort of assault your character. So He's almost easier to ripe for, but she did ninety percent of the lifting with my brother and I. And? Actually became her book friend. Who Read it said is not my memoir. It's my mom Warr, and like. and. It was really like writing it. I didn't know I allowed myself to cancel anything I wanted to cancel as I'm sure you probably have and I was so sorry like it's just it's it's very strange thing to lose a mom and so I. But there was a certain grace to it and I felt like you here's the thing. Here's the grace to my grief and I actually at the very most books like fun funny read. But at the end like and I know that the world is kind of having a hard time right now, there was a sort of magic to. Like. I'm such a people pleaser and I didn't have much skin on me last year and I could I like my body instinctively knew who I wanted to be with and who I didn't want to be and what I want like I couldn't people please and I allowed myself to eliminate anything I didn't want to do, and so I was processed through grief that you allowed yourself to do that. Yeah. That I was sort of like, I listened to my instinct my body knew because I had. I. Didn't have that protective layer I normally have because I was raw and so it was clear. What seemed like a fun activity what seemed like a fun job what I was like, I don't want to be with me. It was like there was a and there was magic to that because normally as a people pleaser, I would force myself to do it and I couldn't. So I felt like it was like all the good cream rose to the top and writing it I was like no I do. Want to write this because they were like if you don't want to do it, that's what we get or if you want to wait and actually became this joyful thing of all these people telling me all these funny stories about her and I felt like it just like I sort of short up had a conversation with her on the page and like it felt like it wasn't until the very wasn't sad. It was just at the very I actually didn't get sat until the end I burst into. Tears when I was done because I wasn't going to chat with her every day you know but like I. Felt I feel so proud and excited because she was so funny like everything that is good and special about my brother and I was stuff that this unusual she would let my brothers and I stay up all night and like bring us to school at ten am give us Hokey days all this sort of magical stop was from her an on the Buck I love that you know i. Notice like to write a book and so when I saw this and I held it and you know your I'm lucky enough to know a few people who've written books and it's really quite an undertaking especially when you're sharing yourself in the book. And so to hold it and to feel it into look at what you've done books to me feel like a moon of me you know how the moon is just a it's still in the orbit something that's that belongs to the earth. It's like that's what he loves. That is out there but it's me. And I wondered. How do you feel now knowing that it in September Twenty Day twenty nine. So soon, a week from Tuesday September twenty-ninth. The world is going to be reading stories about your dad about your mom and about how you went from a little town in Rhode Island to kicking Courtney Cox face on a holiday. I feel you know it's so interesting and you've known my journey of this book for there's been many integrations in this journey we were I was working on man up when you were, you had the beginning of. August. Seven years ago. I feel. So as you said. As. You said Cj like I feel divine grace. I, believe it was malone. On? Yes. Sorry. I did feel divine intervention I truly believe. This was a book I was supposed to put out I. Feel I was very clear. I kept I had a friend who's like sort of a fancy writer Tommy's a playwright and he's been like and I was try- I just kept trying to check my motives because my parents aren't here and I was like, okay. You know I wanted to be fun and funny but I also wanted to honest and and he was like he just kept saying and I monitor to make sure I wasn't telling other people's dirty laundry owning my own story and he kept saying to me just check your motives, just check your motives and like. I feel like, why are you putting it in like why are you putting it in? Do you need to put it in like an what version are you putting in and I felt like proud of? I feel like I've really honored. I I'm just so excited I. Think is a really really funny read I feel like it's good timing I. Feel like because I certainly didn't picture a pandemic. Tour, but it's actually a book that I think it's a good book for right now I. Think we're having a hard time I. Think it's a funny thing and it's also there's some heart to it.

No because if it was a story, I wrote about somebody they were there. They know the truth right? So it's like. Are You mad that the truth out there like even in in namedrop about Barbara Walters I was not scared because I'm like I mean I don't think it. Didn't affect her at all I'm sure but I was just like what happened honey. Buddy ever reach out to you.

Here's my question to you guess what establishment is now offering wedding registry Oh. So when you're getting married, you can register your guests. By the way we're registered here. So we'd like gift. Yeah. This place I by the way I don't. Well I think Reggie I. Let me just say this. Nineteen Twenty Twenty one twenty two and you're getting married should you should register? That's great because you know you need spatulas, pots and pans. Nardi, do you need? Town if you're forty five and you're getting married for the second time, bitch, do not register this. They don't fucking register what what do you need towels? You're forty five he towels go get yourself out. What are we supposed to really when it's us to send Trishaw, to fucking crate and barrel to get whatever the fuck on you're listening I have time for that Trichet ties time for that rose your goddamn towels. So guess stablishment is now offering. Who? I'm going to give you a think outside the pizza box. I'm GonNa give you a hint. It's not domino's it's fucking domino. I know I know this story. So you can go to Domino's wedding registry DOT COM owner. Like not only are the upping the ante and allowing people to register. Here's what they've done in the past few weeks. So Domino's delivered a really big surprise to two different couples that to postpone their weddings due to covid. So near the beginning of July I, think it was a couple signed up for the Domino's wedding registry. They added forty dollars worth of Domino's pizza to their registry, right? Like like ace some does a couple of pizzas. This'll be. Six pieces forty dollars But anyway, they had the ability to look yeah. That's true. The spinach is a little pricey but anyway, they had to postpone their wedding because the virus but he is where here's where it gets so good and it just warms up my heart a few weeks later when Domino's emailed them saying, Hey, the company was sending them a little surprise like the woman. I is must be a hoax what this is crazy and then a few days later she visited her regular online registry like her normal registry and she found that every single item had been purchased and they hadn't even got married it. Would they well, no, this is her normal registry. So there's the Dow was registered and then normal registry for her wedding she went to it and everything had been purchased. Hadn't even got married. Domino's her chist everything on their wedding registry, sent them their pizzas, and then sent them their entire wedding registry and it was like four thousand dollars. To to understand this makes me furious. Domino's can do this because they are having record sales and do you know why? because. I because of the show no because. I understand this show it's me. Oh. Isn't that wonderful domino's can be wonderful how? How What's that thing? Where your charitable? How Films Thraw? Domino's isn't. How great they have so much scrooge mcduck just dumped a and bolts of coin you know why they are. S Because I, use my platform for what the people what. Does in your manager listen to the show I mentioned my manager. Have you met my? Anyway I just wanted to spread that love and I just thought it was very ironic that domino's making dreams come true I'm sorry Russ Matthews. Yes they should. They should. They should renamed the entire brand domino's to domino's by Ross Mathews. Del Taco to could be on the registry. Fuck it. Yeah. Bring it on What is that? What did they ever say to me? What did they ever once say to me? What did they ever Mr Oranges Domino's sitting there in their domino compound? The whole Domino family is there. Your last, you really should get a kickback ships. You've sold any way you slice it. Just. Want Paradigm high what he needs to take charge. I think we might need to start a campaign where people need to tell Domino's and tag them and say we need you to know that Ross is the reason that we are ordering this. So now we can reach out to domino's when I it reminds me of the time that tweeted. I tweeted and I have the tweet. I. Think it was in two thousand and six. I said at Taco Bell needs to make a Dorito Shell. They hadn't made one yet two years later, Taco bell started making a Dorito Taco Shell. And did I get any credit than now? And now they're talk to my lawyers. You. Thank you Nikki forgetting the heat him and. Thank you Kelly. Nikki Trendy what are you? Doing Balls de. Paul. Balls with Mr Malone. Need.

Christina Darling Studio which I can't find the sound. anyway. and just recently I decided to reclaim it for me. As a spiritual room help wellness, I took the courts down cleaned up the closet for all the way but the content that equipment is. To come back I will tell you this where CJ chair is I think I might get a pillow talk. So Cj if we do the show back inherit, you'll have to be on the Peleton. Over. PELETON's like a workout bike thing, but it is a whole system with a thing. There's like collide classes when I talk to you and they do the whole fucking thing job. It's a whole thing. Oh, I would love to one of the episodes on them. So. This is kind of for you. The an Ross. So my you know the LGBTQ, Youth Center, they moved I was so sad Gabe blades aren't there but they were going to this thing called dragon drive or drive in theaters with drag Queens. So I thought well, why isn't the Ross's? Brunch finding a venue maybe for the upcoming holidays to do something like that. Is just for like a venue that would be safe. Let me tell you I just saved two major food fast food chains. Okay. true. Yeah. Cj I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA say that over my. Colleague. Kristie Jay Jordan. I mean we've had talks about it. I went to drive in direct show actually, but I just think it becomes another layer when food is involved too and the. Precautions I mean obviously can be done. You just point be right about it because then when it name like, Roxy, attached to it, you just Kinda got a big shot. Care of these, a lot of elements. We will be back in the brench world though and Brench back. We're definitely talking about it talking to people hopeful things.

Now Nikki how are the book sales for Dying for? Sex. You for asking that Molly's book no screw cancer becoming whole going great everybody who finishes the podcast nine for sex then immediately wants to read her book and it's so great because I go in and I check in on the sales just to see how it's doing an every day someone from New Zealand someone from Australia someone from Jamaica they they reach out they buy her book they reach out to man instagram. So to all of you that have her book in your hands, just know that that is all she wanted. So if you haven't heard about the book, it's from the podcast nine for sex. My friend Molly was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer and she passed away. In the midst of that, she left her husband and went on a sexual dirty and this book she left behind for me to publish that I published for her I. Love It. Now, I have a question. So yeah, if the book cells and becomes a movie, who would you WanNa play Mali and would you play yourself? To hire an actress to play you. Okay.

The Trust Fund Baby Cashes Out

"Inputs as a kid. Days to stay you know that made Tuesday. That's all right. Tuesday. Today is Tuesday down. That's where they are now for this Tuesday. To tuesday. Broadcasting from the belief show. Bob and Sheri studios on this Tuesday is in cherry. Okay. You want to hear about some new Orioles rolling out in the near future. Tell me which of these Oreos that you would embrace we go s'mores Orioles hitting the stores right now. They have Graham cracker flavor cookie and two layers of cream one, marshmallow and one chocolate. So it's like you've got us more is right there in the cookie. I want to hear all the flavors before I decide. Okay. You're not gonna come in and whether or not you, I'll let you know, if I wouldn't eat it or low tape thins, that's in June, and they are thin chocolate cookies with coffee flavored cream in between, and these are not limited edition, or he'll says they are permanent. So they're going to be out there in the stores from now, lo Tae thins, I kind of like that a little bit of a coffee kind of a coffee flavor. Their marshmallow moon Oreos. Noon pice. I don't get the I don't get the feeling of like moon pies, basically regular Oreos, but they have a moon design on the cookies to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing and cream is purple. What under what they mean by moon designed you think it's, it's like a sliver shape like the shape, little sliver shape of the moon, I guess, 'cause the moon moon is round like like an Oreo. So I mean I would have to be a sliver kids. There's a lot of science on this show. So you'll want to date notes keep up the known is. But sometimes it looks like slipper like a Half Moon. It's a Half Moon. Yeah. It's like a half. I think they missed an opportunity not being like a moon pie. Oreo in onto marshmallow dipped thing and chocolate, boom will, but moon pies is a product they would sue them. Yeah. Some of the some of the cookies have like a little rocket ship on the on the question. Why is the filling purple? I mean, there's a song called blue moon, wouldn't have made some sense to have a blue moon filling. So very good. I know I don't get it. Yeah. Is there something about a purple moon that I don't know of those blood red moon rape zeroed in the orange the purple tint in the frosting, makes it look somewhat blue? It's closer to blue than it is over. Okay. So wrong. I'm wrong. I say I say. Now you're thrown under the bus. What was that? What was I wrong about the is it a purple filling? A blue filling AM just reading here. You don't say the creams, purple it should be blue. But go ahead mint chocolate chip Oreos are coming this summer, Oreo teamed up with Baskin Robbins. And there are two layers of cream on the cookies amid layer and a chocolate layer, both layers have tiny chocolate chips inside as luck going on there. And finally maple cream Oreos these are the golden vanilla cookies with maple flavored cream in between speaking of maple flavored, and then you can tell me which ones you'd like I was in the airport in Rhode Island. And I went to the you know how they have those newsstands have little gifts like t shirts from wherever you are. And I bought Mary, a small sherve Vermont maple syrup bottle. It was about three and a half inches tall. Maybe three inches around eight of glass and shape. Maple leaf it was plastic it was plastic. He had some kind of a maple leaf on it at twenty six dollars. Wow. Holy cow. That was a lot. But it tastes, it's so much better than that. Fake stuff. Oh, the fake stuff isn't even was terrible. Yeah. I know. That's a lot, though. So s'mores Latins marshmallow moon mint chocolate chip maple cream. Yeah. The only two that I'm really interested in the LA tape ends and the maple cream. There's too much going on with the s'mores the marshmallow moon just tastes. Like, just seems to me like it's a regular Oreo with some die, and the mint chocolate, corporal, purple, by the way, I don't like mint chocolate chip ice. I don't like any of that taste like to paste. Oh, I like mint chocolate chip, but, you know, this is so weird. This is I'm weird this way. If I get mint chocolate chip ice cream I wanted to be artificially died that, that colored so Europe rather than just with Bannon, Jerry, because Ben and Jerry's mint chocolate chip ice cream is looks like vanilla, and the only reason I know that is 'cause when I've taken the kids there in the past, and ordered it, right? I thought it would be green to, and it was white. Isn't that kind of a disappointment? Why do you want it to be green? I just it's holler of toothpaste. It just it, it just says mint. It's Minty green, you know, and I like that flavor, especially with chocolate, but I'd like to have the artificial Yar fischel collar at surprising, because, you know of how you usually are this. What makes real sweat makes you in big and a man who endlessly fascinates, all is that, just when we think we have you pinned Ohno? So you're saying they're liking, artificial coloring is what makes me one of the one of the things because if it was the old not much, there's not much about the gate. Now. Mr. all natural. High maintenance is in a raid of some artificial color. What else might be willing to? Thanks. It's bothered. Sherry. Sherry app instantly get the podcast and odd cast there's a website called ghost social and they not too long ago. They put out a pitch, like if you've ever seen a funny headstone send us the picture now I know you're saying, well, there's just nothing to kick my day off were than hilarious headstone break, but a my favorite one, but bunch of people sent all sorts of stuff in my favorite one was a woman whose headstone is etched with her famous fudge recipe. To squad the hits on the heads. Yes. And here's it's edged on granite two squares chocolate tablespoons butter melt on low heat stir in one Cup milk. Bring doable at three cups of sugar, a tablespoon of Annella pinch of salt cooked to the softball stage porno. Marble, slab cool beat an eat case fudge etched in stone etched in stone. Yeah. Yeah. There was another one that I liked her name was Lola Holt and she was born in nineteen twenty three and she died in two thousand four shed a long life, and her headstone has her dates, and it has a cross, and that it has the inscription a well, whatever. What kind of like facing amazing sense of humor you have to do to, to do that? New Johnny Carson said that he was going to have be right back on his. Did he though? I don't think he did. I'm not I'm not positive. I think that was part of a routine of doing mind to say, I finally have depth. This one. I don't think this is joke. I think this is Joe his name was George Spencer, and he was born in eighteen ninety four and he died in nineteen sixty nine and it says, George lost life by stab in falling on inquiry, sir. Evading six young women trying to give him birthday kisses in office metropolitan life building. I think that that is completely think is pretty specific though. Very specific. You wonder if you wonder if his wife was involved if he had a wife, the thing is you have to count on your heirs. Like there was another woman she was I think she was born in the nineteen thirties. And she died in the eighties, her name was Joan and her heart headstone was very simple. It was just her name and dates, and it said go away. I'm sleeping you are counting on your, your children, or whoever survives, you to follow whatever your cookie. Che's are well that's the law amid if it's in the will if you put it in the well, if you put in the Wiltz the law. Yeah. I mean I have to do that. I can see your wife doing something who feel like that. Not you. Not yet. No. I would not you're an enigma, but you're not a goofy ending the. But I can see. Mary, does something silly and something playful like that. It's always something that would be would. That would be funny. It's always something. I mean, here's the thing, why not. It's a form of. It's like you getting. It's, it's the last word mortal -ality, you know, people would never become a legend. Would it not? Yeah. I mean why be worried about your dignity? At that point. You just wonder do you really want people taking selfies of your marker, you know, or do you. Think about it or. It depends. I mean some gravesites of famous people, you know, like Jim Morrison of the doors are, you know, destroyed. I don't know who this person was there. No names. And there are no dates, it's a beautiful granite stone. Very simple and all it says, on it, it's carved into the granite. All it says, on it is I was hoping for a pyramid. That's my favorite favorite too. Up there with case. Isn't it amazing that we still don't percent though how this permits destructive. I can't tell you how many episodes of ancient aliens. I've watched just hoping tonight's the night, they reveal it's one of those things that you as a kid. You were fascinated by it. And for me, it's been with me all my life. I've been in the great pyramid people keep trying to tell me that they're never going to reveal it all eighteen aliens. But I still believe he at one of these episodes backs is gonna be all. Are you hiring with indeed? You can post a job in minutes. Set up screener questions than zero in on qualified candidates in an online dashboard. Get started at indeed dot com slash heart. It's Bob and Sheri, people's movie critic, coming up on Friday this week he's reviewing John wick three and of course, that's Keanu Reeves. That's the Keanu Reeves, Tom franchise, Keanu Reeves. I, I love Keanu Reeves. I love that. They're making a new Bill and Ted's excellent adventure and I can't stop thinking about Keanu on Kobe last week. He was on there, talking about the new Bill and Ted movie and talking about how the plot of the new Bill had movie is Bill, and Ted have to write a song to save the entire universe from being destroyed and so Steven Colbert. I heard about it. I didn't hear the Kenya was talking about death with Reeves is such an interesting. He such an interesting performer. He's had so much fame and yet the fame washes over him like a wave going over the beach, and it doesn't really seem to damage him the way it does some people anyway, if you may have seen something about this. If the video shows up in your feed, click it, in fact, I'll posted over to our Facebook. So you can find it. Colbert asked him at one point. Keanu reeves. What do you think happens to us after we die? Oh my God. You have it. Okay. Yeah. All right. What do you think happens when we die cannery? I know that the ones who love us will miss us. That is the most Keanu Reeves matrix, and Ted John wick pick your Keanu Reeves movie speed that is the most Keanu Reeves answer that you could possibly give to that question. It's funny Hoke co bear when he asked the question used the full name because he's got a name that you just you just don't say, you know, you have to say. You know what I mean? He hasn't named like you would expect you have journeyed for months, you have reached the top of the mountain, you have found the wise guru living in his cave. You don't just the dress that guy is bro. Keanu reeves. What happens when we die, who it was such a Keanu Reeves moment, who is the actor who is in the Indiana Jones, the, the last Indiana Jones, Shiloh Baugh? Shiloh book has a name like that, too. Yeah. You'd have to say. Have you ever heard anyone say Shaya? No never Silaban. Never. That's right. That's right. You know that a very good friend of mine. I don't see her very much helped to raise, you know Reeves. Yeah. Into the family when he was very young and has stayed somewhat close to him. But as he was growing up. She was the female presence in the house. He's from all accounts, you know, he's not had, he's had tremendous fame and success. But he's had a lot of heartbreak in his life. And a lot of loss seems to do movies, and then go away, he, he lives his life his own way. He's a very private person very thoughtful and generous person. And it's funny because when you look at his movies they, they were written as the movie was written. And thank you. Reeves was cast. But once you see Cuna reason apart you go. I just don't see anybody else playing that part that could only be. Keanu Reeves was very strange part when he played opposite. Diane Keaton as the younger Dr love interest. The Jack Nicholson as good as it gets was up him of where she only wore white turtlenecks and the kitchen, right? Like something out of during right? She only wore white turtlenecks because she was getting older, and she was worried about the way her neck looked and Nicholson, says through our one point, what do you wear turtlenecks in the summer, and she kind of gives a non answer, but then she becomes involved with Keanu Reeves and Diane Keaton. And they come to me, and they go we want you to do this movie. Wait. You see the kitchen and you're gonna have an affair with, with a guy who's how you on what younger twenty years, thirty thirty who should that be? I would be like. We're going to need Ryan Reynolds, Kim. Dial because what's the point of being Diane Keaton, and she probably she could probably get who she wants? Well, Diane Keaton, king, Ken, you know what's really weird. She used to be the love interest. The real life love interest of Woody, Allen. That was a million when he cast her as any hall. Yeah. She's on Instagram. Diane Keaton is she's got a new movie where she she's has a young. She homs. It's terrible. It looks terrible. She has terminal illness, goes to some sort of a facility and decides to start a cheerleading squad review landed of palms landed in my newsfeed, and the headline was palms is about as much fun as a colonoscopy. How why would she do movie like that? Why? Well, because, you know, you don't ripping people awful, if you know, it's a piece of junk, but you don't know you don't think that you can I ask you what side of the bed, did you wake up on today that you just are assuming everything negative, you don't know that it's a piece of junk, when you said it's a fun movie about old ladies being cheerleaders. How do you know that's a piece of Joan because I think that she is practicum sorry, I don't feel that way. I think she is a very practice. The end at filmmaking and probably look at a script until whether or not it was good or bad. I don't know. I see a lot of movies that are painfully sincere and terrible. And the u u the actors could not have gone into it, thinking, well, this is garbage. I don't know. But as soon as I saw the, the, the clip for it, I went, oh my God look who's talking for. I think we all we're trying to pay off the house. That's look who's talking. Right. Right. She thought it was going to be fun and whimsical and whatever it's Bob and Sheri got him individuals. Simple people with Bob and Sheri more. It's morons in the news. This is my favorite more of the news story of the month, a twenty seven year old guy named Jesse dean, Kalo Chuck has been wanted in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. For almost four years for three outstanding warrants. All right. So he's on the land. They can't find this guy. Well, a Kamloops website posted about him in their weekly, most wanted segment, and they told people in the area to keep an eye out for him. But Jesse message them on Facebook, and he said, quote news flesh morons. I'm Edmund tin, and I'm not coming back. So they called the local cops in sent his picture. And he was just arrested because he gave his measures. Because he said where he was. All right. We have a couple here who had a driverless, tesla. It's a model X or model ten I don't know anything about Tesla's or other cars out there. I didn't know that, that those that you could I guess you can buy those now and depending where you live. It's allowed. Anyway, they were in the front seat Taylor Jackson whose nineteen, she's an amateur adult star guide. What is that an amateur adult star? I'm gonna guess someone who's you're supposed to get. I think they do. But amateur meaning like. Okay. Trying to break through these Tesla's cost like I don't know, one hundred eighty thousand hundred thousand dollars. More says she's on road trip with her boyfriend, and the it's an electric car, and it's on autopilot, and it's driverless. And she and her boyfriend said, we joked about, you know, making our own tape like a video of us. And we couldn't find anyone online who had done that. So we did it. They made a raunchy amateur video while going high speed down the highway in their driverless, tesla that in California. Yeah. Lives in LA when she received two million views when she received criticism for it. She gave the kind of answer that one of your kids, give she was like a Hello. I've. She's. That, by the pain. Anytime you whole someone out of your behavior, and they go low prepared to not let what comes disagree with you. I've experienced auto-pilot a lot. So I felt safe. And most of the highway, we were on, was straight, we only have one scare where I hit the steering wheel and bumped it out of auto pilot. Recommend it because it's dangerous or whatever. Alot. A woman posted a picture on Facebook wedding ring group. And apparently, her boyfriend was the reason that she posted it. He proposed to her with an engagement ring he made out of his own hair. I want to ask you is that a romantic? Thoughtful creative thing or really disgusting. Speaking as a woman. What do you think about it? She. She went on. She said he proposed with a ring made from a lock own here. This is a placeholder until my more intricately woven van stunt, so he's going back for more hair to make it a little fancier feels like something, a serial killer dies Victorians used to make heroin. So maybe he's just an artist Victorian been gone for a while. I think it's cheap and gross. Let's wants a hair ring. Let's wrap up more on the news at the air force base MacDill Air Force base in Tampa. An alligator was on the runway and it prevent it the air force jets from taking off. So here's how they dealt with it brought a front end motor out to the runway, and they screwed it up alligator up in the bucket smart, which to me, would be the best workday ever. If you've got to be the person that's more giant alligator up. You've got the change. And you've got the gator moved off the runway. That's our military using their brains. That's all right. Text the word. Moron two eight eight two six to seven three seven. We will send today's more on of the day directly to your phone. Hello. Are you hiring with indeed? You can post a job in minutes. Set up screener questions than zero in on qualified candidates it an online dashboard. Get started at indeed dot com slash heart. It's Bob and Sheri, don't my phone told me today. And I think of my phone is a separate intelligent being, and she has all sorts of Sassine fo- for me. My phone told me that today is national memo day, which is the most loser holiday yesterday was national rescue dog day. Celebrate. Right. Happy national rescue dog day, everybody with a rescue dog. And if you're thinking of getting a dog maybe go rescue one who other than Tom Jackson, who used to work with celebrates national memo day. Who wants to get a memo, they're never good news who, who got up this morning and said, oh, MG, it's national day, very seldom when you get a memo is good news. Right. Somebody's going to ask you to do something that you really are annoyed with the best you can hope for is that even though it came to you, you're not really involved. You're not involved. That's my favorite kind of like when they get a group Email to everybody in the building. You're just see seed. I love when I'm on it, but no action is required. If not for. That's right. So national memo that's horrible. And let's say in the horrible arena for a while. This is an example of the most horrible grin child ever on earth. I think I know who you're about to talk. He's also an example of the worst resident of a state. A Pennsylvania man was just arrested for flushing his grandparents. Ashes down the toilet. The joke going around is, hey, it's Pennsylvania. They're in a better place now that which which is terrible. It's hard which is really hard. I like Pennsylvania very much. Did did you see the story that was going around last week? We should've put it in morons in the news, but I didn't because of what the story was twelve year old girl and her friends got real drunken stole the grandparents car and went to a writing. I saw something about, and I didn't put it in morons in the news, because twelve year olds who are drunk, enjoy writing. That's a bad bad thing. The bad thing you want to hear about another guy in Pennsylvania, whose horrible a Pennsylvania, such a nice state. You know, they make nice furniture rocky movies, Scud, everything this sky was arrested for drilling holes in the walls of target changing room. What is your pre end of weird where you get up? And you say, you know, I need to I need to just kind of get McGrew von here. I need to drill some holes in a target changing room pervert. But I mean it just it just seems like it's. I why did you pick target of all place? Right. The clothes are super cute. And very Ford that what he's looking for. Maybe the maybe it's a volume game because, you know that you're going to have a lot of action, you're dressing room. But it was a target employees, I was guessing that he was. But I'm not sure not wanna finger target for that argon employees go. Hey, who's me? Why is he drilling in the if you walk into a target, and khakis in a red shirt, who knows the difference, suppose? But where was are you coming? Now, if you want to get your thrills by watching a woman, change her clothes, you'd have to be coming over there all the time. It spending a lot of time waiting if you if he's not a target employees. He went in he drilled the hole any spent the entire day in one of the changing room booth. You can't do that. You can't do that. I mean I don't mean it's not like banana Republic where you don't even have your pants off in. Someone's is not gonna end the door saying can I get you anything? Is it okay? Does it fit? Still in tying my shoes. Give me a second. I think at target. You probably could hang there for a while. I think you could target shopper. I'm going to say it's not an employee. It's just some well if improve it certainly not an employee anymore. No just the ID your printed, a drill. What kind of a drill is it a power drill? All of a sudden, there's power drill changing at Home Depot. I I'm fascinated by people whose particular this is their particular thing. Do you remember it was like maybe two summers ago? There was the guy he would go to WalMart and go inside those big clothing racks, crawl up underneath them. And then he'd slide his selfie stick out. Under women's short, I was fascinated by the guy, a couple years ago who found a way to get into an empty part, when toys R us had stores all over the country, he found this empty room that nobody knew about. And he set up an apartment in there and lived there for, like a year, or the guy who had another fascination with toys, R us. Remember his flavor of weird is so gross. I just don't even want to repeat it, but it involved leaving souvenirs. That guy you're talking about he robbed the store that was next door because that, that toys R, it was vacant right? We robbed the store next door that nobody could find who where he went where he, he was he was next door living next door. He would rob the store go next door and live and people go. He's not out in the streets anywhere. That's because he's back living there. He he had a bid in lights. He was in Devon convict, a was he forgot that not only that he had joined a church and had a fund. Attention. Perverts. We have the internet. Now, don't go to target dressing rooms drill. Bob. Bob. And Sheri instantly get the podcast and odd cast it. But some I've lost a little weight. I don't wait myself. I don't even have a scale but I can tell you know with my pants and looking at myself. It's one of two things you spend a lot of time eating, but you're constantly running back and forth to get the food or. And this is what I think it is. You have an intestinal parasite do not have. Backs in. We have we had a meeting and subject was potential intestinal parasite and Bob. And that's what we think it is. No. I do not have that there is no such thing that is like from from your grandmothers, from your grandmother, art tape room, saying, this is somebody was losing weight, because of tapeworm. Is that what your grandmother said? Have you ever actually know really one that happened to me that intestinal parasites are not real? I'm sure they're real in all, but the whole idea that there's a tapeworm that piece of pizza. And literally Indian there is gobbling it up. Forget that only you would have tapeworm named, Dan. You don't you don't like anybody or close to? I should have married you like anybody. I'm close to my first tapeworm was tie. But he got hold. And. Care what it is. I, I didn't have to do anything, you know, and the lost a little bit of way. Maybe it was when I was getting ready for that procedure a few weeks ago. Maybe I lost some weight, then yet because you weren't allowed to eat yet almost two days. But I don't think. My husband and you announce, I'm not eating potato chips today, and then the next day you've lost seven pounds. It's what is the tick you off. What is the ticket? We wanna be sexy like for you. You know, don't you like a wiry man here? This is this is my husband. I will not eat potato chips today tomorrow. He loses seven pounds me. I've decided to have a leg removed tomorrow. I loose seven pounds. It's our women complain about that. If I'm going to be honest. I've heard more women complain about so your, your intestinal parasite Andy has helped you lose a little weight the wedding. What it is. I don't know what it is. We've got this air fryer thing that I think is going to be really good. And, and my wife brings it in Texas out of the box. She got it for mother's day from her kids takes it out of the bucks. And she's programmed at immediately and put the chicken in, I'd like to know how to do it. And I said, tell me why you can't see the where you said it, it's just said ahead of time. She won't let me follow her at learn how to do it and becomes irritated that instantly. Don't know how to operate the thing come with tiny, manual instructions. Yeah. But who looks at those? It was pretty good though. She made she took 'tatoes and made the potato, what do you call them? We fries wedges chips, wedges. She made wedges. They were fantastic, and the, an and the chicken strips are really, really good tasty. And of course, there's no oil in. So how do you. Feel about that. Hey, hey, don't, don't hate. Okay. Just because I've, I've had a good day. Looks like a lost a little weight some. Why are you going to bring it up and be so Gresley towards intestinal parasite wears a blue blazer in bucks, because it's spring every? Why, why is India? So random. When you just want a taste of Bob and Sheri, just text the word fund size, eight two six two seven four three seven and Wilson it right to your phone, or I'm going to be completely honest here, and I don't care what people think. There's, there's one part of my life where I am not completely lit, okay? All right. I'm just I know. I'm going to get out there in front of this. Okay. Of your life that, not let right, exactly. I am a very PC person. And that is not considered a terribly lit these days. Good for you for bidding, it, it's just the way I am. My wife criticizes me for well, why are you so PC let everything Bill Maher is always going on and on, on TV about? Oh, it's PC America's drowning in PC. You know what I am PC? It just works for me. If you are an African American, you want to be called that I will, I will use that phrase, I will use a black, if you prefer, that, if you want to be called a native American use that in Indian, if you, if you want to be called a googly eyed, snag all tooth. I'll give it to you, very lovely manners. I will give it to you, and it's. You try to be considered. I do it. It's whatever makes you feel good. I want to relate to you and I don't care if it is PC. So let me ask you this. I was listening to some guy the other day. I'm not gonna say who it was. All right. Another radio station and he was trying to relate to women and he used the word the ladies, okay? Where do we stand? Can you do remember, like the sentence, roughly, which used the word the lady is matter of fact, it was something that you and I actually had kicked around days earlier. What is something that's the favorite of women? And I forget the exact situation but I, I would I use the word women, and he used the word the ladies, what I'm where do we stand on the word ladies because for me, it's kind of old fashioned sounding. I have like a weird thing with this. You know that I have particular loathing for the word gal and gal that's like out of the nineteen on Ford eight is one thing. When women say I'm getting together with my ladies tonight. That's kind of funny to me. But so if it's ironic. Yeah, but depending because I hear it used in a way where there's just just a sprinkle of kind of Centene on top of it, but it's referred to as the ladies room, it's not referred to well, sometimes the women's room, but no never the women's room, which you'll see. Women on a bathroom door. Right. But it's referred to as ladies. Bucker. Roosen Bucker rats. Clams. Got into trouble a few months ago. A restaurant, and he's like, I don't know if I'm a skipper, do. I'm just going to go clue found out what I came out of the stall. Yeah. The one I saw was claims stors at and I stopped, and I said. Has pearl. Sometimes. So is that. So that's what I guess that I was a clan. Which I was fine. And I opened the door hesitatingly and right away. I was a clam. Yeah. So where do we stand is ladies to women, like I referred to. Well, I'm gonna go join that group of ladies over there that cool or not cool based on just my own personal experience. I think it really depends on the woman, some women are fine with it, and twitch certain uses of it, like, what am I supposed to if I'm in a meeting and the mail manager says, will I'm gonna leave now so you ladies can talk amongst yourselves? Yeah. I don't where where is it? Okay. To use the expression with grown women girls. When it's women talking to. It's gotta be women talking to other women. I think really. Yeah. I'm not I'm not girl. I'm certainly not your baby girl, or your girl, or your little precious baby girl or any of those things. Listen in some situations, you'd love to be my little precious baby girl. Yeah. Signing. That should lend statement for the house. Bye, baby girl all day long. Yeah. I figured that out. I never use girls anymore and you know what else? I don't like I find very kind of sending. Okay. This is just me. So if you love this live your life. This is just me. I am a grown woman. I am the mother of children. I run a business do not. Call me young lady who do that just happened to? It was the guy one hundred and fifty. No, he was maybe ten years older than I am any thought he was doing it as a compliment. Well young lady. I'm glad you were able to make it, who the hell are you talking to rip van winkle? I am not a young lady. I am a grown woman who actually outranks you and sit your whole, but down you do not call me young lady that is like out of there. I know they're era. I know they're men who think they're paying a compliment, but it's like ages, and sexists yet is both actually and I don't I don't like it because here's the thing that'd be like me saying to you. Well, I'm glad you could make the meeting Dave by Lil cupcake. It's no, it's like if us guys guys is different. I call women guys I call guy. No. But if you referring to men is guys, what's the what's the balance to women? The easy one is girls. And yet, and yet and yet, but there are other this is just me. I have a lot of weird things like my head is a small town, carnival haunted house of crazy weird. So y'all be gals or little girls, or baby, girls or embryos or whatever it is. You wanna be ladies? If we were in another era, it would be almost the compliment for a guy to say. Yeah. She's an interesting broad. I would rather you. Dame. I know you were gonna say this guy said to me, I'm glad you could make a young lady. Unlike listen here punk. Yeah. I didn't pull myself out of a meth house, gutter, I am a grown woman. I am not. You're young lady little girl, baby. I would never use broad. But there's something about broad, if I see it in the movies that is complementary. It says the really is a stand up woman Dame. I'd rather you called me a skirt and call me, your baby girl, baby girl, swertz easily. Yeah, you're not Mark Antony. I agree. Thank you. It's bothered Sherry when you just want to taste of Bob and Sheri, text the word fund side, eight to sixty seven four three seven and Wilson it right to your phone.

That's fun. This is a conversation. I've had with my husband where I'm like, what, what are you care? Why is it important to you that somebody else would like to be addressed in a certain way? I don't get it either. I don't get like of all the things in life to be outraged about me that's not worthy of outrage. However, this next subject may be because I was reading online in. I think it showed up in my feet. Appreciate it was the Wall Street Journal one about to tell you as proof that there are no adults left, and that there's no actual business being done in America. Because the Wall Street Journal had this huge article on whether or not cargo pants are acceptable. Wall Street Journal. Listen to serious newspapers in the Wall Street Journal that is BuzzFeed territory off, where they referring to shorts or long pants cargo pants. So this whole giant article in the Wall Street Journal about cargo pant saying there are two kinds of people people who love cargo pants and people who hate them with a white hot burning passion. Love them, hate them. And so they went out, they sent a Wall Street Journal reporter out probably knocked BuzzFeed reporter in front of an oncoming subway train, and interviewed people in the fashion industry about cargo pants was the result. It's mixed now. I personally like cargo pants. I personally don't. So I knew you didn't. So that's, that's why I never I have never had appear cargo. Here's the people who can I say something why I haven't before people are judging. I'm not tall. So I really don't need to. Things bulging out of the side of my legs.

But you put something in them, which is the whole purpose. Right. My phone or some chapstick. I mean I'm not walking around. I'm not here to reroof your house. I don't I don't need pouches like a kangaroo in my licks people who loved the cargo pants say that they're comfortable and they're hip and no matter how many people say, hate cargo pants, they sell like crazy. So they're so they're back again because they went out for a while. They never really went really went up. That's the dirty secret about cargo pants. They never really went away people that hate cargo pants say, they'd sound like you. The proportions are weird. Yeah. The, the pockets are. Toughie right. Lazy people were cargo pants. I wouldn't say those 'cause you're because I'm PC but I, I can tell you this fashion industry can do whatever they want. But if they all of a sudden, deem that tighter pants are no longer at all in style, and you have to go to go against it. I'm staying with. I'm staying with tighter pants because somebody my size, I think looks more flatter. Yeah. They did kind of skinny cargo pants. It goes against the whole concept of skinny jeans.

Don't say the name of the Bank, we wanna keep you kind of in the shadows here. But tell us what you're telling us about. Are you working Benny? And this was probably like twelve years ago, I had this custard customer comment. And he was actually quite distraught. Because he had been turned away by two banks previously who would not open up an account with a check she hadn't her hand. And she was quite underprivileged and stuff, you know. And she was like, listen, the sounds crazy. But I got a letter say, in my dad died, and I am his only living direct air, and I'm gonna be getting a check for twenty thousand dollars a month. And I need to build a cash it. And I said, okay, that's that's interesting. I said, you know.

I getting her, you know, obviously, she'd then became one of our best customers with our, you know, with our investment group, and her accounts and everything. But yes, she went on to impair its millions. How about that? So she was she probably just had a fight with her father. They became strange, no. From what I understand the, the her mother and the father was like a kind of like a one night theme. And type of thing never lingering. He liked her by his family shunned her, and sending date her no much goodness. Really? So she was nobody says lovechild, but that's basically what people use the call. A child. That love the Supremes one of the worst songs ever recorded. Wow. What why was it? So bad was it was, it was singing about love child or was it? The lyrics melody. The lyrics were embarrassing. What, what, what were the lyrics all I can think I love child never meant to be loved sharla show. Stay away from something like that. I think you're doing a good job of it. I'd like to hear more, I was born in. I really I don't because he was a customer of mine for quite some time while she was kind of getting a fabulous with her inheritance. Oh, that's an interest. That's an interesting story that, you know, you're shunned by that family. But it least at the end the biological father was enough of a man to say put her in. I'm glad I'm glad he did that. That's great. Can you imagine going from? I it sounds like Heather she didn't have very much on welfare and other side. Yeah. On welfare disability did not have much at all. And I was like all do is by an RV and travel. You know, that's what she wanted to do with the. Played a bull read. That is great. And she was able to do that. I guess. Love child.

Cauliflower Eytan, not trying, well, something never try snake. It was great. But I have a Severn Christian mother, who is very sweet. But as far as she's concerned, I've ate the devil. She found out that I had snake six years ago like last year, sometime and every time thanks about it. She's falls. Part all over again. Saying, I can't believe you ate the devil. The steak is the devil on the top side of ours. So I don't know. I'm close new keys deal mama knowing that I've had snakes. So if you've got anybody says and sway increasing loom donates night.

I'd love you is the devil on the top side of earth. Let me just say we all think that there's drama in our own families. But you feel a little bit better about the Trump and years after hearing terrible. Because apparently mom, lorries mama has not ever felt the same way about Laurie since she ate the snake. I know it's terrible snakes know they make Mary semi a video of snake when she was walking the dog the other day there was over on a rock and I'm a little uncomfortable about thanks. I don't know. Poisonous ones right away. I couldn't tell if it was or it wasn't this one wasn't, but there are snakes that do good. They're, they're good sneer very, many good snake. So just to to blanket, all snakes as the devil, or Nate on the top side of her on the upside earth. My daughter marched up to the front door after school. The other day and said to me. I guess you don't care that I almost stepped on a snake, like I'm psychic. Come psychic and I knew in my second mind, I was like, oh, hang on. I'm getting a vision of what you out. Almost on a snake. You know what I don't care? What, what are what he brings to bring the information to us on carrying mothers, quote, I guess you don't care stepped on a snake, so snakes, the Representative of the devil, on the topside topside of her. So I guess the bottom side of the actual devil would be held. Yeah. We're the actual day actual devil. Bottom side of the actual earth, snake, top side of her that has got to be a really dramatic of thanksgiving. Laurie laurie. I want to come to your family barbecues. I just wanna be all your Morial day for July. I wanna meet all your cousins. I wanna meet your mama. I want to eavesdrop on every conversation. Yeah. I wonder what the circumstances were Lori was eating snakes do. And at that many you eating the devil. Topside. Guess what? Hey lures momma that ain't the only devil tides. She's flipping out. Choose flipping what, what did this Nick taste Legua? How did you end up aiding eating some smoke because I lived in the desert. And that's all we had we didn't we call, you know we like to call him we call desert chickens. That's what we call sneak. No, no. There's a restaurant that plays called rustler's roost, and they serve snake in, you know, you when you bring people from back east out west. Take them to places you take him to rustler's Reuss for snake in the Grand Canyon. So it's like taking somebody who's visiting Florida to a restaurant in the Everglades. The gator frogs legs it's, it's a very white tender meat. You know. And they, they cook it. I think it's white. It's why. And I will tell you this whoever came up with the phrase it tastes like chicken needs to be slapped in the mouth, injuries Zimmer and eat snake on bizarre foods, and it is white me. It is. But it doesn't taste like chicken. But if you dip it in ranch enough, it tastes like rant. It tastes like ranch. Was invented so that bad things could taste like ranch. Right. But, but you can't really describe the it's system say or labor. It's not as flaky as like fish, but it's not as hard as like chicken as far but yet somewhere fried. Yeah, it was fried. And it was like in little. Right. And put it rain. She's right. You get it in the reds, we had fried chicken last night from one of those machines where you don't use oil fire. Air fryer. Mary through some chicken scripts in there with some flavoring. It was fantastic. Awesome, where we have these really good. We read at once. And you read it again, can't believe this. It's bobbin cherries. Belief. I think that every person living in America, right now with is in years has seen a TV ad or a billboard for personal injury. Attorney law firm. Right. You can't go minute watching any kind of television without someone offering to help you out. If you've been injured worker, saw one the other day on the highway, don't scream. Call a key. Too. So in Klin, there is a gigantic billboard. It's bright blue and their two attorneys featured on it Cellino and Barnes. And they are personal injury attorneys this bright blue billboard. We got Cellino on one side got Barnes on the other, and in big red letters, it says injured and then a phone number well as luck would have it a billboard worker employed by Lamar outdoor advertising fell off that very same word. His name is David Fricke. He's forty nine he was working on that billboard when he plunged ten feet to a rooftop below got a concussion fractured. His back his wife fan bonus son are demanding answers from his employer about how this happened because he was in his harness, and as he did every day when he went to work, he checked his harness. And the reason that they know for a stone cold fact that he was in his harness and wearing a properly doctors had to cut it off of when he was brought in stretching. Did he call those two lawyers is wife actually said, I don't know if we're going to call Cellino and Barnes thinking about. I wonder what happened billboards to fall off all the towns in the world's like it was in a movie, you would say, well, that's over the top, you know, that doesn't work. Have you seen the commercial, it's for one of these personal injury lawyers? And I think it's a national law firm like I'm better call Saul or whatever they've hired this guy with silvery hair, big poofy, head of Silverio who you mean he looks like the patriarch and daytime soap opera. And he says he looks a little bit like, who is the coach max for I. Who did he coach? And then he became a commentator for years on NFL Johnson, Jimmy Johnson. He's got Jimmy Johnson here. He he's very I don't you know, I'm not an actor. So I have no talent. But he's a little over the times over the top with his seriousness. He's, he's like a soap opera actor. Yes, he kind of, like raises one eyebrow stare. So flee into camera into the Cameron says, call the hurt line yet, exact that guy. That to me. He is the poster boy for these lawyer when I saw him for the first time I said, I'm watching him on TV. I'm saying, you're not a lawyer. Active your actor. You know, we need lawyers to represent people. But one of the things that cracks me up on these commercials for a different injury law firm there, they've got real people or what I assume real actual clients. And this man was in some horrific accident, and he he's knocked out cold and he comes to in the hospital. It's just terrible. What's happened to him? And he opens his eyes and he said, no, I opened my eyes, and I said to my wife call so and so. I surf you're listening. You are a better man than I'm ever going to be that were me. I would open my eyes and go. That's an actor. Can I can I tell you something in this segment? I can't believe this. It's, it's not a serious thing. Well, it is a serious thing, actually, I was just a little surprise Vanna white. And Pat say Jack have been together thirty six years. Get out thirty six years. They've had one fight fourteen. Yeah. They've had one disagreement. And it was over whether you put ketchup or mustard on a hotdog or something stupid like that. So I'm reading I don't know why I'm reading this, and she says everybody thinks that I have the job on TV six shows a day in five inch heels. It's hard work are doing those six of those shows, I guess it would be, but you probably offer a few days to sit crazy. Here's what she started talking about Alex trebek's who's got a battle with cancer, and she said, even though he's on a different show. We're still in the same family. So I'm there and supporting him and praying for him a van, I've only met him once and I'm praying for him and hoping. For. We're not in the same family of shows. But if, if he were, like on a different show which up if he was headed. I mean what's a competitor for? Wheel of fortune, even though he's only word on my phone. Like, what is it even though he's on a different show? I'm there, supporting him and praying for him. I I'm not on the same show. And I'm I'm support I think everybody is supporting alley met anyone that intensely inactivity. Disliked altruistic. Yeah. No. And he doesn't seem like he's so nice person I met I did it. I did a show with them once a live show with him once, and he's a great guy, and I were broadcasting from Universal Studios, and Alex trebek's was there, and I remember this because what he was wearing like, I think of Alex trebek's is the jeopardy guy in a suit, you know, with the right. He went strolling past us at Universal Studios in a pair of cream colored silk pants and a black T shirt, looking legs, some sort of gigolo it was. Alex trebek's. He looked sharp. Yeah, it was shocking to see him out of his uniform shocking that Pat invented have been together, thirty six on television doing that show on TV. You know what they look exactly the same say what you want that may be the greatest gay get ally show. I think it is. It's bobbin Sherry, the free, Bob. And Sheri and instantly get the podcast, the cast and Bob and Sheri fund side we were talking about lawyers who advertise on billboards and on television, a moment ago and max way, do you hear what matters dive on the internet and found an actual TV commercial? This is out of floor from Florida lawyer, listen to this. Hi, I'm Steve Miller. I've been a trial or, and Florida and Massachusetts in nineteen eighty five. If you and your spouse, hate each other, like poison and wants to get out of the hell holy column marriage. You've come to the right place. Look, you can waste your money screwing around with some paper pusher, paralegal type. Give thousands of dollars of some piece of crap three piece suit downtown blow your brains out trying to figure out why you wasted twenty five bucks on the crappy forms of bought from the alliterate boob at the courthouse or do what I say and do it now. We know what we're doing here. Look at this website, a work of art. Here's the story pay. A little and we get you a lot. Don't worry about the details. We'll take care of business and let you know when to crack open the champagne okay time to move on. Go to get the divorce page in the upper right corner pay up, and you're on your way to getting rid of that vermin you call a spouse. We're here to help divorce easy, a Florida law firm. If I were in that position, I couldn't work with that guy. Just but do you, do you know what the most awful, do you know what the most effective line was for me? The one that jumped out at me. That might make me go to him if I ran that was it the suit downtown. No, no, we know what we're doing here. He just bottom line, it, we, this is what we do. This is how we make all of our money. This is how I got my boat. We know what we're doing. Here is a person who has gone through a divorce, I know time no matter how you're tainted. I was did I ever even privately refer to my ex in my own head as vermin? I think that's way harsh. Horseshoe? They could he could be looking for a specific type of person who's getting divorced. I mean, the absolute worst situation ever I, I would want somebody if I were going through a divorce, I would want somebody that is going to be a little bit more even than that. In other words, I'm the one that's angry. And he says, don't worry, we'll handle it. I don't want them to be as angry as I am. Do you know what I mean? I know exactly what hurt is. I am if you're crazier than me. Yes, that's yet. But that's a little marketing what he's just that. There was all marketing, they're going to handle it. Like any other lawyer handles whatever the situation is in the divorce. I don't the east should never judge a book by its cover and make snap judgments on a person, but he seems like an angry were me, little weasel. I don't like him a bit. I'm looking at the video. Let's post what let's post that semi Lincoln, I'll post right now. He's smiling with what you just said that he looks like a worm me angry. Little weasel. Getting free publicity for posting it. Oh should we not post it? If I don't post, it then people lawyer, and, you know, you're not going to answer these emotional read them. You know, it's a great deal of for a lawyer. Let's say in your town, you're the greatest divorce lawyer. Right. You're number one, you are brutal. You are absolutely brutal. But you get your clients the most that they can get out of the situation, you put up a rule that says, when you come to interview me, it's going to cost you me, pull a figure out of the sky, when you come to interview me, as your lawyer, it's gonna cost you five thousand dollars for that meeting. Now, you may or may not use me, but the next person your spouse comes to me, they can't use me because it's called polluted. You polluted the pond because you can't talk to both people out. So the deal is maybe I get used and I'm the lawyer, but even if I don't. Don't I got five thousand dollars for one for one meeting? Yeah. I mean, I don't wanna hire this guy to refer to the father of my children as vermin harsh. But I or central soft, I, I am I'm ridiculous. I'm not fit for this world. But I don't want that coming at me either, if he hired that, and that came at me. First of all, you're going to hire a lawyer that knows who he is the two of them know, each other, they probably play golf together, and it's going to be worked out in sensible way. What, what, what that was was market. It's not a wrestling match. Other divorce attorneys, get aggressive. That's the most aggressive I've ever seen just too easily me to work as Lee. There's something really about, but only in Massachusetts and Florida. The more on of the day, sent right to your phone ext moron to eight Bob share to sixty seven four three seven. These are things that will help you be productive at the office or in our case at a studio here. So I'm to run them by you and tell me which ones you think would be attractive to you in which ones. I should get. Okay. Okay. The first one is a pack of mushroom coffee mix reviewers say they give you the same amount of energy as regular cups of coffee. But without any of the jitters or caffeine headaches, I've never heard of that, have you ever heard of mushroom coffee mix? That mushroom here. It is right here mushroom coffee. What could possibly be? I'm gonna go with a tasty hot beverage made of dried mushrooms. Maybe blue light glasses because they can help you read emails without a headache. So it some how filters the blue light out so you don't get a headache I no problem with that. I don't know if I'd want that noise cancelling headphones. I have a pair of those I have bows, and I use them on planes, when I don't forget them. They're, they're pretty good, except they're expensive and also bad. And I forget them a lot, and then I bring them in the batteries, batteries going, right? So I like to do bring them I wear them on the plane. Let's say I'm traveling with Mary, you know, she hates them. There's just something about it because you know what she hates them. She hates them the same way she hates. When I read a book on a plane because I'm not interacting with her, right? So as soon as I pull him on she goes, she rolls her eyes. It goes. Oh, God there he goes again. Luckier you to be surrounded by women who hang on your every thought and word who were these women. Love is going with me and your wife, but probably really is that right? Okay. Okay. Well, this is the same thing. A set of old fashioned foam earplugs, in my car. You probably don't know this about me. I have a bag of them because when I end up going to a sports bar, and they have bingo night, musical, bingo night, and it's very loud. Okay. So, like music bingo, I have won prizes playing music well, so, so of I've certain categories, but nonetheless, I don't wanna hear it. It's too loud. Put your ear bud. You're so I met her there and I had the I had the ear plugs in my ears. She sat down, and I gave her her drink. And then she caught the she said, I am going to leave the Spar. I'm not going to sit in a bar with a man on musical. Bingo night, who has your plugs in is you have to admit it's not sex. It is not sexy. I admit, but their flesh tone. So many people would not see them. I can still hear talk. It's just I don't have to hear you know. Ninety nine for the Tucker. Let's see. What's the next one here? These things that give us more pleasure at work, all natural tension relief. Bomb that crap doesn't work, so in think about that adjustable standing desk. I haven't you bought me one. It does work. Have you ever heard of a privacy screen filter, where you can look straight on the screen? But if somebody if somebody's looking at the side, how does that work? I have it on my phone, somehow it has some sort of a way that so if you're on an airplane, and you're in the middle SIA either person could see they couldn't look over from the side, that have strayed onto the screen so you have to be straight on. Yes. You have to be straight on to see do, do you? I mean, is it something that you physically put on the screen or you do? That's pretty good. Not I'm, I'm not like I'm sitting around here looking at porn, but you know, I could see how some people if they were working on something. It idea in a plane of somebody staring at your movie, or your work. Here's brought it up. Here's why here's why you need it, Bob. Because then you could look at Connecticut real estate and pictures of lobster. What do you call them lobster rolls as much as you want without being criticized judged at home? That's, that's right. All day long knows what are you looking at? History, I'm working doing stuff for the squishy eggs, three squishy, kind of soft rubbery eggs, but the size of an egg with different colors if three different colors just three do stress. You know, you start to get a little stressed out or you have a nervous habit. You know. You do that. Instead of the nervous habit. Like biting your nails. That's the Scots thing, have you ever known anybody who bit their nails? And it's so disgusting habit. I've yeah. So those are the oh, I think those are the only ones that I really was interested in. Yeah. I mean. Bob Ross sticky notes. Might be all right to the rest of them. I have no use. Well. A mini essential oil. For diffuser share them with you, because I have no use for I might like this, a many essential oil to Fuser. So you could have like peppermint aromatherapy. You know. From the early around the corner. She has one of those she has one of those now, isn't it a problem, though, that everybody else has to smell the smell that you like Dino what I read speaking essential oils? There's a psychiatrist who said that doctors are too, quick to hand out a benzoate anti-anxiety medications patients with mild anxiety should be given lavender oil to treat their symptoms. That lavender oil is a natural way of combating. You hear about lavender, don't you? I mean, I think it really depends on how high your levels of insight right? Have really high levels you need to get. I'm surprised you're not pro essential oil diffuser. 'cause you now, you are you like like a magical fix for things. You are like that. I just certain things. I just don't believe but other things you believe, over right? Hey, still free country. Okay. Indignant more more in 'nigma, enigmatic, by the break. It's. It's the new bottom cherry fund size on the free, Bob. And Sheri at? I like to bring on some subjects once in a while that really don't impact me at all. But impact our listeners. So I was on business. It's really. Yeah. Well, it depth. Okay. Kerry. Here's what we do for hours, a day of the Bob and Sheri show view to allow it's some portion. You're welcome. Thinking of credit for your extract back to me again. Thank you. So I'm reading business insider, please tell them what business insider's insider is a website that scrupulously avoids providing any information whatsoever about business. Yeah, exactly. And they have what you should do right before a job interview. Now, I say that this is not for me because I didn't even remember the last time I had a job interview I'm even know if I've ever had one. I think I'd like showed up at radio stations and they said, yeah. We need to we need a warrant you look clean your breathing. Your breathing. Go ahead. In that studio. Take it over. I can't remember the last time I was interviewed for a job. That's a lucky that's a lot of life this. So, you know, because I am generous, I'd like to pass the information along to people who are looking for a new job. And, you know, the average person it matter of fact, millennials will have like fifteen different jobs in their lifetime. They have to get this right arrive early at the place. But. Don't go right inside. That's very good advice. I mean if you don't fit seven thirty in the morning and you're there, I'm here for the job interview. I mean it would seem a little bit. Don't be late. Don't be late. It'll make you flustered in and anxious there. Don't be late. What is that's who would be late for a job? Enter there, lots of people get their be late for a job interview. It says unfocused some people are late for everything there early and like play game on your phone chill yourself out. Frank Sinatra said, if you're not early, you're late and then he punched in the mouth. All right. Number two, stop. Rehearsing practicing for interviews is okay. Just maybe not right before you go in, because you end up sounding scripted. Now you have to relax you have to take it easy. You've got it in the back of your mind, exactly what you're going to say. I would think I would try to come up with, like if they asked me a trick question, you're always supposed to have a question for them. So people are like, what, what questions should I ask the easiest? Here's a trick. Yeah. The easiest way to find a good question too. Ask is to listen intently when the other person is speaking, instead of thinking about what you're going to say next because the other person will say something to you that will spark a question. For example, I'm interviewing you for a job say. Well one thing we're looking for in this position. Bob is is for someone who really is comfortable with innovation, because we make a lot of fast changes here in this environment. What time is lunch? Do you have any questions for me earlier, you mentioned that you make a lot of fast changes in the environment? Can you give me an example of what you very good rather than coming in with a stock question that you've, you know, the day before Google online, like, if you are if you are not thinking about what you're gonna say and instead listening to what the other person is saying, all will be revealed. You have to be good. That's a skill them on everybody has. But everybody co work at that I suppose, so I think you should come in with a stock question, though. A generic suck just in case you don't pick. Up on some generic legu- still a little bit of research about job. Not I understand the tuition, Eric. Is there? Is there a roof on the building? What is your favorite color, minus read? Don't put yourself in a position where you have to cram for your interview. Right. You should research the company a little bit about it take a few days doing that. And finally, avoid any excess stress go going in there like your sweaty clan. And if you're like this may be more true for women are closer way. More ridiculous. Whatever you're going to wear to this interview have tried it on before. Right. Walk around in the whatever exact looking Amir ask ask a friend. Comfortable. Get Lamar's sent right to your phone text movie to eight. Bob. Sherry watch the Ellen Degeneres show because it's just not on at a time. That's convenient for me. But it is been on now. I'm talking about the afternoon talk show, not the situation comedy that she had when she came out many years ago that Ellen Degeneres show has been on for sixteen years. Blows my mind, I've read, and I hear you say it, and my mind goes. No wait. That cannot be. And she keeps talking about maybe retiring. And then she'll pullback because she doesn't like the sound of it. When I say, retiring, maybe not from show business. Doing that show because there's a certain amount of stress. I mean, in her case you gotta learn it a dance every right? I always thought that was really really brave of her to come out dancing at the top of every show, the she's still do great dancer. Yes, she is. So this is what she said. She said, I'll walk away really what I stopped having fun. I actually don't care about the rest of the people if I'm having fun. And no one's watching. I don't care. But if I'm not having fun and everyone's watching than I should walk away. So basically, she's kind of doing it doesn't need the money obviously, she's doing it. I self if she's still interested. It's entertaining to her the amount of audience really doesn't matter. Don't you think that if she wasn't having a great time it would be reflected, the show? I think so. Sure, so much of that show is because like the. Chemistry of that show. I don't get to see it very often because my schedule. But if I know she's having a guest on that, I wanna see ID VR, and so much of that show really comes down to her everything energy persona through Seattle. All of it. When I've seen the guest seemed to trust her. They seem to feel like they're not gonna be put in a position where they're going to be embarrassed. And yet, she still will ask some pointed questions, and they know that it's a silly environment, right? It's not an humiliating environment. Yeah, exactly is the difference. There is a difference. Hi. She's she scares people. I don't like being scared. I don't like practical jokes, and I don't like being scared, and she loves doing that. How does she scare people all kinds of different ways dressing room? And then somebody will jump out of what you think is a trash. Oh, does that. It is. Yeah. But she does that a lot. I don't like being scared either or being made to look foolish. Despite the. Silence. And carrying response. I, I mean. Be foolish. You know, when it's funny it's, you know, and I'm kind of in control a little bit. But I don't like to what is it? You dislike about that. Is it the loss of control? Is it that you wanted to you wanna be in complete control of when people think you're goofy? And when people think you're not. Yeah, sure yeah. And I want to go to a reunion in everyone thinks I'm damn fool. Of course. I mean, that's I mean, looking what you do for a living. It's an interesting thing because every day, you walk a foolish tight rope. I mean it's what we do. Right. We are not. I if you know this. We're not bring sir up in here. No takes. So takes a certain amount of skill to do this, what, what inner torment are you willingly inflicting on yourself, walking that fullest tight rope everyday when you feel this need to have so much control over how you're perceived? I don't know. Shirk goes way back may have a tissue. Here's where I think it goes back to. I think you were born to be an entertainer. And you've been telling any teacher, that would listen to that, since you were little, but the circumstances of your early childhood were so embarassing to your parents, and you absorb some of that embarrassment. So you wrestle with I want to be an entertainer, all eyes on me. I'm the class, clown. But don't you dare make fun of anything that's real because we couldn't help these things that happened? Yeah. We'll talk about the world. But what but nonetheless, I mean, I talk about everything that we went through and poor. We were and living in a in a bedroom. That's closet. An all. But if you said to me, I want you to open up. Let's say we were on TV all right, the show, the show is broadcast online, somehow on TV and everyday. You've got to come through the door dancing. I would be uncomfortable with that. I just would and it's not like I don't, as you know, I have ridden liquid hips and, and liquid liquid I would feel. Well really silly doing something like that. Whereas you were looking at video the other day of this guy who was at a wedding. I didn't see the video but all the groomsmen were headed dance cry with happiness. Right. I just don't think I could do that. Now, here's something that you should stop. And consider do you realize that the only person who thinks more deeply about you that you as me like, I think? As much as you think about you. How many do you have a busy life? How many people I'm going to look back at the end and Saint Peter's gonna go listen. We gotta talk because first of all Bob's here and he's enjoyed really from you. Do you have any we're gonna show you a movie now we're going to show you how much time and your one precious worth life? You spent thinking deeply about Bob's. What say what you want? It's kept you out of trouble. Okay. It's something do. Yes. That's right hours. People goes toward of your hobbies. I'm gonna say. Well, there are worse choices you could've made woman course choice. The new Bob and Sheri twenty four seven Bob and Sheri dot com. So we were just talking about how Sherry is, basically, thrown much of her life away thinking about me and my thoughts and you know on the one hand, I think it's good. It's kept her out of trouble, a strip clubs and that sort of thing. And but on the other hand, I don't know you know, say what you want about what we do. At least people sometimes get a good laugh, and laughter is something that keeps people healthier so Saint Saint Peterson will cheese. That's what you did. Well, Saint Peter, I mean, people were, you know, laughing sometimes, and we would occasionally talk about something scientific like a five foot beaver. She she brought up. There was many years ago. A five foot toner pound beavers hundred pound beavers, right now know some good, some little light entertainment. And all I would hate to spend my life and I, I would be. Sad. And I mean, no offense because all work is good work. But if like I'd spent a career. As the manager of, like what's that store where you buy plastic dog crap Spencer, Spencer gifts? All right. How I got into the world of Spencer gifts equivalent of retail? It is, but radio gives you well, I guess he could get a good lap Spencer's, but it's just that would be wouldn't it be kind of like a whole your whole life spent with naughty, t shirts, and naughty tricks and stuff. Here's what I hope you know, there's that person there's the mole my finger dude. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I hope that every Spencer's gift location is managed by a pull my finger ghitis because that would be the perfect career. It would be fill your uncle Jimmy, who's the pull my finger guy. I don't think so, though, because those pull my finger guys, they're few and far between and then you'd have to have the ability to manage the place and suck up to management. One thing that I'm always curious. Okay. This is like a, a very highly specific pastime. And ray. Her thin. I always curious when I see an interview or something with the CEO of what is basically a big fun company. Does that person seem like a big fun person very often nut? And yet, the Domino's pizza commercials where the CEO of Domino's is telling you to take a picture of any pizza that guy, even though that, by the way, feels, I think that's just like a, a giant data mining grab, but whatever you take a picture of any pizza, including a stuffed pizza dog toy and you earn points to give free Domino's pizza. His name is rich, something I've seen the commercial million times. He seems like the kind of guy that should be in charge of Domino's. He seems like a fun pizza guided me, yeah. He's kind of business. But at the same time, he's kind of like the one that set our, our peak. We have to change our pizza because it really sucks was was that him or was that another. I don't know. I just know him from was kind of. Really? That was that was dominant wasn't it? Yeah. He seems like a fun pizza guy. And yet, you'll, you'll have a company like Chucky cheese, right? And the you go the CEO of Chucky cheese, has got to be the life of every party. And then you see him on sixty minutes. He's all serious, and he seems like someone that should be running. I don't know like a tractor company like not a fun, Chucky cheese. Heads of this knee have seen that way. Haven't they who is Michael Eisner? Yeah. Brilliant mob, idir the brilliant, brilliant, men, but you look at him you say you could be running like General Motors or something. You know, not Disney the woman who found it. Mrs fields cookies. Like somebody that was cookies. I. Was real Bacher, but. Orville red inbox or not look like a man, who was a strike of popcorn empire who is famous Amos cookies. They still around. Libanan Hawaii making. He was that guy. Used to make them about three blocks where I live. They think saying, oh man, I love vets now smell was good forgotten how we got here. CEO the fun business. Like the CEO of ios. Maybe that's the way it is expensive. I hope. Thank you so much for listening to the Bob and Sheri podcast and the Bob and Sheri, odd cast, we'd love if you would subscribe rate review and share it with a friend on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, wherever you go and thank you again for listening.

ONE GUY'S OPINION 12-5-20

"Newly friday franks week. One guy's opinion dot com joins us. Now live morning frank morning before we start. I wanted to ask you about warner brothers announcing it's going to debut. Its entire twenty twenty one theatrical release slate on. Hbo max what do you think about that. I think it's just another sign of the changing nature of theatrical distribution in this country I mean this is This is really an epochal event For warner brothers to do this is something that's really not going to be able to be turned back after twenty twenty one and i think other companies are likely to follow suit. It's all part and parcel of the changing way in which people are watching movies. They're their homes into theaters and i think This does not bode well for the continued existence of a lot of our theaters. Which i think is really unfortunate. It's very sad statement all right. Let's get right to the movies now and start with wander until my daughter drunk. I don't know you're good. Man a silent. Water this one features tommy lee jones who i just love is good I wish we're better. It's a paranoid thriller of the sort that the people specialized in in the nineteen seventies. You remember three days of the condor. Even all the president's men the one that's most reminds me of is the paralympics view which is a very good film from nineteen seventy four about an investigative journalist. looking into a spate of political assassinations This film doesn't star an investigative journalist. befitting the nature of our times. He's a podcast whose life has been destroyed emotionally by an accident involving his daughter and his wife and is convinced. That they're terrible conspiracies out there and goes to the little town of wander where a mysterious death has occurred to look into it and connects to that with a much larger conspiracy He's played by aaron eckhart in a bug-eyed over the top performance and his collaborator on. The podcast is played by. Tommy lee jones who brings his usual christie's mountainous bear. He's done doing his usual stick. But it's always fun to watch. Tommy lee jones of course and of course the conspiracy proves to be real And whether this man is being led into the conspiracy or is really finding out about it on his own. That's the question that the film poses. And why is he there in the first place. Why is he in wander The ending is rather limp. Frayed and the convolution that occur before it are none too convincing So this is a paranoid thriller. That doesn't really work as well as the old fashioned ones did. I'm afraid. I can't recommend ponder but i mean not ponder but one but You might wonder why it'd been made in the first place except it fits into the conspiracy minded ethos of our age all right. Thank you for that. Sorry to hear that Next chapter is a romantic comedy. Which i tend to like these. Because they're just. They're like candy. Starring diane keaton and jeremy irons now. That's promising but the title just screams formula love weddings and other tres miserably. Fix a lunch for you. A blind date food cutting blind. Yes well i think the politically correct term is visually impaired. I suppose seeing the title screams formula is that that would be true for romantic comedies. In general but what about this one. Yeah with people like diane. Keaton and jeremy irons. And you'd expect a lot better than this The real tip off is that it was written and directed by dennis dugan who for years has been a member of the Comedy stable shall we say of happy gilmore. That is adam sandler. So you know that there's not going to be much wit In this movie and you could tell that from the opening clip. That was diane. Keaton and jeremy irons that clip He plays a stuffy wedding planner Who is has a blind date thrust upon him and it turns out that diane keaton whose his date is actually blind and so their first meeting. She stumbles into reception. He's planning and crashes into a big elaborate glass display that he's prepared for it. That's that gives you some idea of the quality of humor in this movie Another part of the movie involves a dating game on television called crash. Couples which literally chains together People who are terribly unlike one another so you get a dwarf chain to an amazonian a woman or you get for some reason a rabbi and an arab chain together Or you get as a is integral to the plot here A man with a russian emigre who claims to be a lawyer. But it's actually a stripper that gives you some idea of the level of humor that exists in this movie Even old veterans like diane. Keaton and jeremy irons cannot compensate with their talent. Crudity the humor in this movie which is really almost unwatchable at certain going have to pass on this right moving onto a biography. Last call v. Most unique voices margin dylan thomas. Things fall apart the center kennel. Oh well what did you think it is. Well this is about the the poet. Dylan thomas who died in nineteen fifty-three after a terrible drinking binge drink eighteen straight whiskeys. The legend goes and what makes this movie. Almost watchable is the lead performance of re hyphen. Who plays dylan thomas. It's about the last day of the poet's life And it's a very stylized movie shot mostly in black and white in the bar where he downs these eighteen drinks that supposedly eventually killed him The scenes that really work in this movie are those of his declaiming his poetry before wrapped college audiences. That really shows ivan's it is as at his very best. The other scene set in the bar are so pretentious. That they're almost intolerable And whether fans of dylan thomas and there is still a great many of them out. There will enjoy this portrait of him as a suicidal man bent on his own. Self destruction is questionable. The only reason really to watch this movie is to see recife performing dylan thomas's poetry which still Maintains a good deal of power to it. Otherwise this film is just so self indulgent that it's sometimes very hard to take. That's called last call frank. We're running short on time. So i'm going to skip the trailer. We've got two more films to ask you about will ask you to be be a little bit brief on both of them. The first is an animated film called one hundred percent wolf yeah. This is an australian film. The animations very nice but the story is very derivative. And it's about. It's about a young boy who belongs to a wolf pack. He wants to transform into a big wolf so that you can follow in his father's footsteps unfortunately his is out to seize control of the leadership of the pack and so the little boy when he turns into a supposed- wolf actually becomes a poodle instead and he's thrown out and he has to make for of friends with a little dog outside. So what you get in. This movie is a lot of the lion. King joined together with a bit of lady and the tramp. It's cute enough But it's so familiar. And so derivative that even six year olds will think that. It's awfully familiar. All right. finally luxor romantic drama. Would you think about that. One real quick. Yeah there's a set in the city of luxor in egypt and it's about a a woman who has served as a doctor in the syrian civil war and she's come to look for because she's suffering from the trauma that experience and she wants to regain her psychological balance and she does so to a certain extent by reconnecting with an archaeologist there that she's had some intimate contact with before. It's a beautiful film about coming to terms with the trauma in your life and andrea rice. Burroughs who stars gives a very nuanced and subtle performance. It's a pretty distant kind of film. It doesn't come at you full force and you have to be willing to go along with. Its slow meditative pace but of the films that i've talked about this morning. This one is really the best. All right frank thanks as always we appreciate it and look forward to our conversation with you every friday.

We have other things you know like it's a stretch it's very much like we get it but chill you know like, yeah, we get it in iser Bush but please lay low it's December fifth by the way what are your plans I was gonna say gotTa make plans I can't think a worse time of year to celebrate drinking. Then December fifth like Christmas is coming up you know like that's weird right now for people who do drink socially That is the time of year when I guess you're doing the most social drinking, which almost makes it an interesting. Oh, the holidays the hot, but it's not quite the holidays yet. You've had your Thanksgiving such friendsgiving and then you're sort of having all of your holiday parties for your friends and at work and Blah Blah Blah Blah. But next call, we got a few calls about bud evil. Astro. We had a lot of calls a lot of calls like three calls about Nicholas Cage and moonstruck because he's a one-handed. Baker. which is true is true. I found this called more interesting though. very long time occasional line. I had to Pasta podcast and I needed to talk to you about this buddy. Vlasto born ball thing because you mentioned Goldman in the same context and I, think they have like a conscious together which much less anyway tough after as it takes a look like a saying. He got in a motorcycle. And lost like nine ten of his house. So there is they these two are just like there's some sort of. Terrible Evil Tether Times together. Maybe I don't know I just thought it was funny that were these two like kate size or any respective freak accidents about their random leader hobbies Okay. Yet. Again, another arranged call for me probably won't even play this, but I just had to the podcast in call you and tell you that desktop. His. and you can look at okay thanks guys informed ball for by from two thousand fourteen we have on us weekly ace of cakes. Star Duff. Goldman. I love riding motorcycles even after losing toes in crash and then it starts making in bikes. The Ace of cakes duff. Goldman spoke to US weekly on Wednesday October twenty second about his adoration for motorcycles. Even after enduring serious accident that resulted in the loss of several toes quote I love motorcycles Goldman thirty nine told us at the Hollywood premiere of on any Sunday. The next chapter quote they're part of my soul even though I got into a wreck awhile going lost some toes I had to promise my parents and everybody I'd stop writing but I can't. I mean so so were saying the ace of cakes guys, his toes and the cake boss he didn't lose his hand he just his hand. We don't know whether to be de on what ebd on the handy our and I would say it's much more traumatic for a cake man to lose hand because you got to you make stuff and it's you know like. Got Mixed up. You gotTa make stuff. What's so funny to me about all of this and it is funny because they are okay. They are okay and duff does sort of make little wisecracks about it but being in a kitchen and I know baking is sort of a more leisurely, less intense sort of kitchen experience than just you know working at a restaurant but every shaft like if you know a chef. Covered in scars like Oh, and then this happened to me here in this year because you have to be fast you're using knives at the time it just funny to me that like if I met a chef and they said, I, fucked up my hand I'd say like Oh did it happen in the restaurant? No, it happened in the bowling alley. Well, that's right. Happened in my home bowling alley and be. Like home bowling alley that's a choice you know like that would be my that would be my first thought honestly like having nothing to do with hands being crush or just be like you have a home bowling alley like what kind of richer you you know cakes must be selling? Well, who has a home bowling? Those cakes are so expensive God just GonNa shut it down I kept thinking like just like This now, no, one can go and use the home bowling alley just becomes like this. Just we don't don't go there. They'll turn it into something else I. Mean Look at Duff Duff is like my family to stop writing motorcycles, but I, can't but he's not going to give up his bowling alley. So you think he's going to be like my family wanted to stop using my home bowling alley but I can't. have. You watched. Bake off yet. I. Know I was. Last night I watched it before you did I. Love. It was even better than I do see the bust of Tom Delong I mean just. When when that guy said literally Tom Delong to the. To the judges top Paul Hollywood and that you could tell they didn't know Tom Delong was they'd never heard of him in their entire life blink wanted to was barely something that they knew and they were just like Sherman. Sure Man Sherman imagine telling prue about blinkered Ivy to now you're familiar with the all the small things video Peru to catch you up and it's not a spoiler. But was there was a challenge where the bakers on the bake off had to make cakes were the busts of people and people chose their heroes, recognizable people, people who know who they are, who else David Bowie when Antoinette Figurative Mercury figures that would be in a wax museum that have had. Likened their likenesses created before, and then we have this idiot who chooses Tom Delong from blink way too, and then didn't zone else choose Lipton Yongle and the end like really did not do her any favours she to to neon go and then was like Oh God this is bad and then change the plaque on the front of the Kate to say guess who and they were like, did you say did you put us on the plan because it doesn't look like the pizza and she's like The fact that you've put guess who on this makes me think the looks like that's right. I mean. I as somebody not in the competition would be like I'm choosing Elvis like choose somebody who has like a recognizable thing you could make out of formed. I mean, all you have is just like different pieces of fondants. Okay. Sorry. That show is so good. Fonda pisses me off but I love it I love when it's used well, look if I'm eating a cake I'm like annoyed when the fondants there but I like watching people get creative with font but I'm also like when I look at cakes that are very fond heavy I'm like your hands where like all over this thing like it. This is like been touched so much touch everything they touch. The fond you're like touching, it's like Plato. Bobby sisters in, law is. Already TV show some. Sorry about that. I'm from Houston and apparently it was a show about high powered attorney and Houston. Anyway. One of the leading characters or Lawyers on the show was also a contestant on survivor. And I believe was the first person voted off season. So a Houston who maybe? But. You know got survivor on your resume. And Sisters. Think she's also city council was the woman. Crunch crunch. Anyway Anyway we TV sisters-in-law, it's four or five black women in Houston. Who are all lawyers? So I tried to find full. The full episodes are not on. We just have this like extended trailer Houston Texas is fourth largest city in the country. When you look at the lawyers in this country, sixty, six percent are men eighty two percent are white. And we're the rest we are in a male dominated white veal. As black women lawyers, we came together to form this group we call ourselves sisters-in-law. So it premiered a few years ago and never got a second season. It's just one season on we TV. I do like in the comments of the trailer. My favorite comment is can't wait to see my cousin Rhonda. Rhonda is in the show can't wait to see my cousin Rhonda I also love something that we would also steal for our show, which is the cyst in the sisters-in-law logo. The T has the scales of justice hanging from the t low fat. I mean love that well, let someone used that name because it needed to be used somewhere. There was also a book we got a tweet from someone taking a photo of a book on their shelf that's called sisters-in-law McLean original we just claim to be dumb. And the idea is that they're sisters but also sisters-in-law we got another call that was saying that. You don't get what you mean by that. I still don't because you seem to don't underst-. You'd seem to not know that there's a difference between sisters in line actual sisters and I'm still trying to figure out whether they're sisters sister-in-law's no they're not blood sisters they're only sisters-in-law. Okay. So they're sisters in law and they're sisters in law. Yes. Got It but they're not sisters. Well the thing is no what no got a call saying what you see in my thought process, they marry brothers and their sisters in London Apple Sisters Right. We got a call that was like bobby. You can go one degree further and make them actual blood sisters who also marry blood brothers and they become Bo sisters, ancestors and Long sisters-in-law. But that doesn't happen any that doesn't happen. Sisters don't marry brothers as in some we TV reality show may one thing on TV that happens. The whole reason ABC is successful is because it's senate around shows about people who don't happen. Grey's anatomy I WANNA show to be have a little bit of realism and I just think they should be sisters in law because it's also like sisters in law like they don't always get along you know shoes your sister in law, and so then they're become, they inherit some law firm or some something happens and they get to be sisters in law and the healing can happen the healing begins and so can the justice? Next call. I who weekly I'm a few weeks behind and listening to your episodes but you just mentioned victor, Garber and Jen walking with Bradley Cooper. That's gone anywhere because I only get my pop culture news new guys. So maybe crossover in the present now, two months that put a blown up anyway back to Victor Garber, you you gotTa and it made me say Oh that's Victor Garber. Once he was ordering egg salad at the Deli Counter Mrs Green Grocery Store for hot minute and The West village which has you know close down pre-coded Yeah. So Victor Garber also loved Egg Salad. schedule. Victor Garber. Loves Egg Salad. That's all I need to know about that. What can I say about this call other than great? High who weekly longtime medium time I've never stopped the podcast in the middle of an episode to call in. But I have to do it this time because I can't believe you disgusting name without mentioning his most iconic moment when he gave his Golden Globe Award to Jack Lemmon he like called us he won and he called a Jack Lemmon who would like very old and she said he wanted to give it to him and he was like tying Jack. Lemmon was like what's happening and everyone laughed and I remember this being like. Very heartwarming and also exciting genetic but also I was eleven. So maybe this is not. Like because I remember. But anyway, I can't believe you guys out. obviously Jack Lemmon is van. So I don't have any question to add a question to ask about that but crunch crunch same side. Stanislavsky said Love the art in yourself, not yourself in the art. And I love the ought in all of you here and. As Mr Jack. Lemmon here. Does here. Would you please come up here Sir Feel that being an artist is about giving an I'd like to give this to you. Mr Jacqueline. Being one for Don. King miniseries. And he gave his award to Jack Lemmon who was nominated for ten twelve angry men. How many men were there dwelt? There were twelve twelve angry men. So he gave it to he gave it to Jacqueline. Honestly. That's kind of makes me a little weepy even just watching it briefly. So I can't even imagine how it made. You feel watching it live at eleven years ago. No. That's really really, very sweet. Very sweet. One more thing to know about being rams. One more just one more thing high who weekly had the Pie because I realized you missed one famous who from the real world and that is Kurama Brown from Queer is so he might actually be the most successful real were long would say a ten maybe tied with Mike, the Miz, and then Jamie try and then that congressman. Anyway, means I guess I forgot I still think Jamie Chung more famous than Kerama. Oh, I'm just sort of td on how famous Chroma will remain and Jamie Child has shown her staying power and I don't know that I. Am Convinced Karama has the staying power of Jamie Chung okay. He is very famous. He's very famous stats at total misread. First of all, it doesn't I don't know how famous hill stay, but he's very famous right now. Is a big who, and even if Cromwell Brown is like kind of a WHO More famous than her for sure for sure. As long as queer eye is on the air, he is more famous and I forgot that he was on real World Philadelphia because I think knowledge only I, not watch that season I like he's like almost so famous that I have now removed him from that category completely in my mind you know he was the first out black man on reality television. That's amazing. That's crazy and I'm trying to think of I. Know I definitely didn't watch this season I definitely now actually, I, stopped probably two years before I stopped. Like the Las Vegas season, which was what ninety or back to New York. There was maybe two thousand and two. There was a season was like I'm done with this. This show is stupid. Now, this show us to be smart and good an interesting, and now it's just tra- shell getting wasted on the top of the Paul that was like my favorite season was. Stats when I was like, Oh, I'm digging. In Sweetie. Honestly why like watch Love Island every single episode of Love Island, this season in almost every season. But yes, that was like finally real world has caught up with might taste. Rash. We did forget him and yeah I personally think he's more famous than Jamie Chung who let someone tweeted as a Barrett was she was on the real world. I guess she's definitely not more famous than Kerama. Oh, maybe same famous Jamie Chung though say famous famous fair. Saint Bassus Fair. All right I who weekly. Time I might have a chance of being the first person to call in and let you know the. Thomas Tension is still alive, but I have a feeling I'm not going to be the last I. Love You guys crunch crunch that you so much Thomas Pension for calling into the podcast. We're so glad you listen and. Next call. Hi, Lizzie Bobby I just finished the sitting Tuesday's episode and First off. I called before about Megan's like Irwin she is I. Know You mentioned she's now cozying up to Demi Levato ex but. Technically she's also a relationship with my friend. Who is twenty two and is I mean, I, love him but he's really the low but is dating. Meghan. But apparently, her name is not making her name is Megan. And she got really offended if you call her Meghan because you're supposed to pronounce it Megan. And I. Thought you guys were saying that was Really funny. the yeah. Living the laptop. To buy its Megan. Sorry. We've been calling your Meghan when it's Megan the whole time. Honestly it makes it better because now, I can tell the difference between Meghan. Blaker and then Meghan the other one Megan Blake Irwin and Megan. Barth Martin Sanson Yeah. Martin. Hansen Megan Blaker. When how are we going? Is there some sort of MNEMONIC device? We can use I mean I guess there's really no way of doing that other great up memorization but sure. Sorry Megan sorry. Megan Oh. My God. That even sounds like me saying, sorry, Megan sound sarcastic just. It sounds like sorry Megan one day Megan, assign this like actually it's Megan the stallion. Like we had no idea. Was it. It's Kinda. Like Riyan arena it's like it's like Megan Megan? Usually you're like if we're playing clip of someone most people in saying Riyan and we know it's Ana. Right, it's me. It's Megan. So if even maxine to exist liar, they called avatars like shouldn't be a petar. Also, it definitely should be Nicer Usta just like Megan Blake Irwin is pronounced Megan. The Max fans are pronounced avatars. I don't know why does it make sense? That's what Abe decided. That's what they're called. They're called avatars this person saying they should be maxine stas alone. This person does not exist in a bubble listen to the skull that came later. Hey Lindsay Bobby on. Medium time medium time. I was just listening to the pod and I am so disappointed. That, you have revealed the name. avatars. As even Max. Stands. my. Tonight. Also claim to be even ack fans and we were so proud to call ourselves next. Easter was. So just kind of bonded this news but. And broad that I know the truth. Crunch. Crunch. Be Supportive amax stands can know themselves maxine East just saying calling yourself a maximum sta is like revealing your millennial self because only people who know of Tj Maxx are like out here remember. Like we all remember the ads we called ourselves Max. sinise does because we got low-cost prices for high quality items at our favorite TJ maxx with two X is with two exercises I. do think though that she should use maxine Easter because while TJ Max is kind of irrelevant avatars coming back. So she's going to have to fight with James Cameron's Avatar one and two, and God knows three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, whatever for that title. Especially, if he's calling it avatars, not avatars he starts. A tars. My mom was such a maxine. Easter TJ NOT EVA oh. Yes. Same same same. My mom loved telling someone that's that her whatever was from TJ Maxx TJ not Eva Tj not eva I love your top I t. j. Max. My Mom's favorite response to anything teaching Cj Max, oh, marshals also Ross dress Ross dress for less. Did you have Ross Ross? We didn't have as. Much.

This morning in bed watching the Deborah, Cox nobody's supposed to be challenged So you guys watching that if not a fun real hash I think follow my favorite. Who have done it It would be very interesting great, and also feel who was a singer and now I believe she's like youtuber blogger she's a great anyway I checked days page 'cause it's just seems like a challenge that she was born poor but unfortunately It's not that I'm frankly I'm a little disappointed in her didn't know where else. Okay crunchy crunch inside. The Deborah Cox, Challenge I it sort of bubbling but I didn't know the extent to which it was sort of like happening in that. Deborah. Cox. Herself has given it her seal of approval before you do did the car describe what it was describe what it was. Oh No. So it's The Deborah Cox Challenge is you have to sing the bridge of the iconic Deborah Cox Song from one, thousand, nine, hundred, which is. Ably. The most difficult bridge ever Sung. I can't think of a more difficult bridge not it's a really good bridge, but it's like it's half runs exactly yes. Right. There's a k. change and then there's a scream note at the end it's beautiful. It's fantastic but it's like it's it's singular like it's not a it's not for beginners. I wish I could search my videos better because I know that we have done Karaoke when our friends have tried to do. Nobody's supposed to be here because there's just a category of character songs where when you see it show up on the Q. You're like Oh boy and this is one of them now because it's not good but because it's like you have to be a good singer to sing and this one of them I. Actually you made a little list of other ones that I disagree with. One of these on here, very much I. Disagree that Kate Bush, weathering heights is a bad character song I. Think it's a great character because there's a difference in what she doesn't that and mimicking it. Then what Celine Dion does and because you love me because you're not trying to sing and hit high notes, you're just doing like a funny falsetto which like, yes, you're not hitting those Kate Bush notes but you're really not trying I would say like, yes, like songs that are like two good like almost the. Singers are too good. You shouldn't are usually bad in Karaoke honestly even when and not to be this person but even when the singer is good, they're still bad because I don't want to hear some random good singer sing a song slightly less good than the main song like a you either at that to me is not interesting your name mean yes. So on the Deborah Cox Challenge, which is doing on instagram and singing the bridge, and if you are a good singer, that's great but in the context. Of Kariuki we don't need you to be as good as Deborah. Cox. Like we don't want you to be as good as stepper calm and I also don't really want you to be good at all like I just want you to be good at Karaoke which kind of implies that you're not good at singing. If you were good at singing I'd come to your show or whatever. If you had a show or whatever you know I didn't come to see an open mic night I came to sink see Karaoke. Hot Take. This song. Deborah Cox is our biggest that there's no way she's speaker than their number one head or this is it. It's only her biggest hit but the remix of this song is a bigger hit than the original. If I recall correctly, you know like the the Remix they did that turn it to like dance real dance song is huge. She's one of those artists from like the nineties wide the Koran on the brain but it's the sort of person who like Ken tour for the rest of their lives based solely on this one song and they will continue releasing new music and they will say I'm GonNa play some songs to my new album and you're like, okay whatever. But then they play nobody's supposed to be here and you're like Oh my God. This is the most thrilling moment of my life that's Deborah Cox, and she's thrilled the people who are doing the Deborah Cox Challenge. What did we talk about when we're talking about like dance like Dan Stephen Singer Robin s Robin S.'s like in the Deborah Cox World where they still do tour on their heads even come together and sing stuff together like they kind of have like dance divas tours. Yeah. Sorry go. We had Melanie Fiona total who takes me back to my vh one day she she was a you Oughta know artist Queen has done. WanNa play clip here also a WHO burgeoning them perhaps, but I still call her let's singer play clip. and. Then of course who but Kiki Palmer has also participated in the Deborah Cox Channel. and. Can you do it? I was like she'll be try it kind of a joke but now thinking about it and it's like it's not even funny joke to try it. It's like ninety Joe because just terrible me doing this because if you hear Palmer do it you're like, Oh fuck. If you'RE DEBORAH COX it, you're like buck there was a recap on kiss ninety, five, one dot com and it's just like written by journalist writing about these other contemporary artists we Niger and Melanie Fiona doing the Deborah. Cox, Challenge. And the way that they quoted it is so funny it says. Quote but I turn around and you're standing here standing here. Oh No, no nobody no no nobody nobody night. That's the branch. Home, also, the bridge lasts four ever what I wanNA hear I wanna hear Melanie Fiona do it I really like Melanie Fiona hold on That's so good with her little kid in the background singing along with her with vol. He's brushing his teeth. We love it. That is so amazing I love a bridge but also I love challenging bridge you're not heading this bridge. This bridge is impossible for challenging bridge. Do you remember the Melanie Fiona Song we left in two thousand twelve. Can you name it? No but like I it what was it that album the life which was M., F. Life. One of my favorite albums of that year was the song, the Melanie Fiona Song that we were obsessed with. It. Even just looking at this outmuscle triggering, I'm lying God. Love GotTa uselessness, own all the time. That whole album was right up. Ara. debock Deborah Cox is Democrats who are them. It is an iconic song. She is Canadian I don't know I. Don't know. I know you said. That makes her I'm just adding I'm just adding onto the thing and she has had so many number one dance hits on the dance charts right like nobody's supposed to be here. Yes. Was Number one on the US pop charts that like crossed over but on the dance charts let's like So many of them. You know she even had a song Whitney Houston called same script different cast, which I literally have never even heard Oh. It's on her greatest hits album. Yeah and it incorporates a backing track of for Elise how by never heard me. Play Play it. I feel like an idiot on. Okay, I can't even get further than the interim which they talk to each other over for release. That's enough for me. It's my favorite Song I. Love It. Thank you so much for that Deborah Cox is. The ever challenged however is a WHO and all of you try it. Don't try it. That's the thing like her son. This is. Truly I love this challenge but is the worst challenge because you can't really try not only like ten people can try it. Normal people can't dry. I. Don't WanNa hear you dry it. Hi Yes I just saw something about. Kyle Richards. Like Rotted for a rainy or something that burglar stole. On a photo shirt Diane Keaton. And like. I don't like years ago for Diane shared it, and then Richard was like. And like there's this whole thing and like. I can if I didn't like. Yeah I just think really be interested to know about. HOW OUR White wine with ice clean keeping Gotten wrong. Thank you so much Kearns crimes her crunch crunch pandemic as a sign off. No. Yeah. We don't like that. I don't like that. Keep our crunch crunch out of. Out of that out of that, we're trying to keep it light here. y'All speaking of lighthearted. This is weird as hell. Hell. Held, this is dumb stupid stupid, right? Yeah. You're right. This is just stupid and don't really understand what's going on with the housewives were they're always do why are we talking about them so much? It's like almost frustrating to me like we didn't have to talk about them for so long and now it's like keep on doing stuff like this. This is great because it sort of when it overflows into just like normal press coverage a little more inclined to talk about it. That's the only way we would. It doesn't really matter that this happened on the show and like you said, this isn't even happening on the real show. It happened unlike the leftovers show the secrets revealed show. Yes. They did a secret revealed episode of House, which is like you you get to milk an extra episode of the season which already has maybe been shortened because of covid nineteen they're all onsumer whatever and Kyle Richards, who is Paris Hilton's aunt and Kim Richards sister, and she's also a child star in her own and she's been on housewives for a while she's in real. Not really a fan favourite as much anymore she used to be the point is, is that she? Must Graves? Casey must graves she revealed during this reveal secrets reveal that. So I guess she had been robbed and all of her jewelry was stolen. Years Ago Right, which is sad. You know all this jewelry that was in her family was stolen, and then she revealed that she was like scrolling through instagram and came across a Diane. Keaton photo that a photo Diane Keaton had taken on Instagram of this woman's hands and the hands are like of an older woman she's got long black fingernails and a ring on almost every finger and Diane Keaton posted this photo and writes like in all caps shows resin in. All caps like the hands of psychic guy came a class on the third street promenade you know like something like that right I mean you could find the real text, but that's basically it. She sees a ring on that hand and she says that looks like the ring that was stolen from one of the rings that was stolen from me. So she's like a half defined leg talk to Diane Keaton like find this ring and it's like Oh okay I mean just. Fine and so like she has like her people revolted Diane People in Diane's like I don't know this woman is a psychic that Iran that I came across on the third street promenade as I wrote in the caption or whatever and Beasley. They kind of gave up the case. But of course, once this thing goes on TV. It's now open to the public to be like all whose hands are these they're gonNA find you know they're they're very distinctive hands. This woman has long black acrylics like if you knew this person, if you knew this woman, you would know who this woman is. So the best part is that this Gen Z. Tick talker posts on her account. Hey. These hands belonged to my grandmother who is not a psychic, but these are hands and that is her ring. She's had it for a hundred years here her hands at my fifth grade graduation hey kyle. Richards. I see this post on Diane Keaton, story about your mother stolen rings I just WanNa clear things up. This rang right there. That's my grandma's ring. She has been working in a pharmacy for over fifty years has had those rings for decades. Here are a couple of pictures to prove it. These are my grandma's hands at my fifth. Grade Graduation. There's the ring that you've been talking about. So let me know if you want any more information. The most iconic thing about this Tiktok have to say is that the grandma has had this manicure with these long black acrylics. Definitely thirty years. For Holding, Tiktok her as a baby and then she's like got long nails. She's got long black across. It's like it is her signature look like you can tell and then it turns out the funniest part about this because obviously. Inside edition finds the woman. Her name is Diane French they interview her she's like these are my this was my grandma's I. Don't care who the rings belongs to I truly don't like I really couldn't. The funniest thing about this story is that Diane Keaton thought that this pharmacist by the way she's a pharmacies, Diane Keaton Old Pharmacists, or works at a pharmacy but still okay. But like how did Diane Keaton call this woman who works at a pharmacy who she encountered a psychic where did that even come from? That's absolutely the strangest thing about. It she says all caps. It's like I took this photo of Fortuneteller in Santa Monica and then even on this inside edition story because the woman obviously the the pharmacy worker who with the long nails went on inside edition 'cause they found her and she was like this is fucked up my name's being dragged through the mud and inside edition person goes are you a psychic and she goes no, my twin sister called me last Thursday and she said Diana. Your hands are on Google just to clarify a couple of things are you a fortune teller? Why did I say that she was? Why did Diane Keaton? This at this photo now, I'm like wait the backdrop is not like the fortune tellers table this counter at a pharmacy rite, it just the counter at the walgreens or something. I. Like I ain't trying to protect. The woman the woman is like I want an apology from Kyle Richards and I also wanted to. Diane Keaton because like she called me. She called me a fortune teller and I work at a pharmacy what is going on on? Diogenes instagram okay. I've come like four times today but you. Please, tell me you heard. How Wendy Williams pronounced versus what she was talking to brandy on your show. There's I'm done by visit episode about mispronouncing things. So how can we not play call about Wendy Williams calling verses? The web show versus let's play a clip. I also really enjoy you on verse Zeus versus this let's set the scene. She had brandy on her show by which we mean they rolled out a TV with Brady said on. Onto the Wendy Williams one of the funniest and this is a visual joke. But one of the funniest tweets have the presidential debate with somebody tweeting that they like please welcome brandy to the presidential debate and it just clip of them rolling a TV out with brandies face on it onto the stage of do. Unreal. To. Stop. At the. We need a source that person who was a how do I finally sunny it's so old. Enough Chats to twelve different people. It's Nat I have it here. Bimbo vacation at Bimbo vacation net. Bank patched brandy has been brought onto the presidential debate stage HASHTAG presidential debate. Just. Clip is. Okay imagine that music but it's a giant TV being wheeled by a person with brandy on it and she's waving and bobbing to the music. It's like number those grocery store robots, kind of everywhere for a little bit. Remember them. There's still everywhere you go into a stop and shop. There are still everywhere. We need them just to be replaced brandies head. It is weird to call it versus. What he doesn't know what's house reading but like what he doesn't know what's happening now I just. I also really enjoyed you on verse Zeus Laura Proton preplan. Got Things. That isn't who news. I don't know what is. Chris. It's certainly WHO News Laura Pond Pre pon she got bangs. She got bangs she got banks Laura rebound has bangs now and it made the news. The funniest thing was that I search slower pre pond banks will it's on her instagram and says have to remind myself that Hashtag self-care is important. So I'm starting that fall off with little change she got banks that self care is getting banks self care is not getting bangs everything self care to these people. Like banks are but the funniest thing is when you search Laura Pre pon gets bangs you go. You get directed to a very old established gossip sites seriously. Oh my God dot Com. I mean I feel like I still around. They're kind of vintage she alongside Pres-, Hilton. Did lead bitchy that type of site and you have the the the slug is Laura. Pre pond gets banged to and I was like one you take off the to it directs you to oppose from May Seventeenth two thousand eleven Laura Pre pon gets bangs, and it's from when a while ago she also got bang. So it's not the first time that she's gotten bangs I'm just saying just saying it's not gets bangs. It's gets banged because that's the seriously Dan. Convention if you search the site seriously orangey dot com for gets banged it's just endless Ellen pompeo get spanked sophie ever guard gets bank Jennifer love. Hewitt. Gets banged lower. prebon gets Banglore pre-punk gets banged spot at least Miester gets banged Kim Kardashian gets bank Bella Thorne gets banged. snooky gets banged their over ten pages of this. What is funny is that this blogger had to write about about women getting banks because it's not just posting a picture you have to write something. They write. for for Ellen peyot Ellen pompeo attended the grand opening of Marquee nightclub and she debuted her new hairstyle on a problem with bangs but that but on top of her head with them doesn't work and be nice and NOCCO off on grey's anatomy Golden mini-dress. Oh, wait I just did. Okay. So it's like, yeah, that's very like this is from two thousand and ten. That's a very. The feels very much like two, thousand, ten blogging. But every time we have a headline somebody gets banged. This person has to write about banks, which is you know honestly impressive in itself. So I was looking at like. Prepaid still doing her terrible bunker youtube channel sheet. Yes. A week ago she did not she was not banged and she taught us how to prep baked eggs. A day ago she is banged and she taught us how to you guessed it PREPA quick chicken dinner for fall. Hey guys just got the kid down to bed, and now it's time to get dinner on the table. So I have some Broccoli Pratt's I have some broad rice I, always the preps might fridge and I'm GonNa. Bake some quick chicken and dinner on the table in about fifteen minutes. So let's get to it quick chicken. That are here we go. We I'm sorry she made a whole video about making like quick chicken where like all the other ingredients are premade and in her fridge did you watch like fucking Cameron Diaz, teach you how to make some handroll recently no I didn't watch Cameron Diaz make a handroll. These people are just pivoting into life style cooking content as though it's anything original. It's like if I need to learn how to bake chicken breast and I'm talking more pre-poll chicken breasts, which means there's not can be much more than salt and pepper on this thing why would I have to go to allure prebon video and not just Google, bake a chicken breast this is deranged the that anyone would go to this woman for cooking content I. Know I always brown rice in the fridge always keep Chop Broccoli in frizzes show funny to be like pivoting from like whatever she was doing before I guess like orange is the new black to being like now I cook it's like from what leg wide. Okay. Shore you really have to like work hard to like earned that pivot and it's not easy to do and I don't think that she's earned it even with the banks and if you're GONNA do it put a little effort into it and like get a ring light get a better camera. This is awful. It's awful. Yeah. Two days ago Alex Miller said still trying to get used to those bangs. As a comment. Tiffany says me too. She still looks good but it's so different Adrian Adrian says I think it looks good. Well. That's all there is to say Moose gone. Mehar says, Hey, you're banks are amazing love from Spain. Love your new bangs gravity videos. Always you look beautiful bangs cindy he loved from Belgium God Tiger Weekly. So my question here is. season. Rule them his girlfriend Jennifer or. Remain. definitely a WHO I've known you she is. I just know that she's possibly with the most beautiful women I've ever seen in my entire life. And everytime she's GonNa Jason Derulo Tiktok, or instagram or video or anything. I'm always like who? Won. Why is she still beautiful? So, can we talk about? I. Am in, scranton she lives life for living even as a model or actress or So. Yeah. I WANNA. Know we listed girl genesis or remain. God. Only knows his name. Thank you Frenchman. You are being play. You are like we are all being played I. Mean there is no one truly more fake not like just more inauthentic right now than Jason. Derulo. If you think that he met this gorgeous Instagram, famous fitness model at the gym, you are playing are being played, your your being played like. Because she has five million followers on on tech talk. He has thirty million dollars on tiktok made for being the most inauthentic person. He's ever been is this tiktok journey he's been on let's be real. It's fun and funny. But like what you know and she who he quotes, we met at Equinox We both have a similar desire to work out all the time and I'd seen her once there before and then the second time I'm like I'm going to go talk to her if you think these were not set up by mutual agreements between managers whether or not the relationship is whatever or not it's like these did not need. Organically at the gym? No, no, no, no no no. He does not do anything casually and they did meet at the gym not to like get overly speculative but he saw her was like Oh that's gorgeous model person who'd be great for my Tiktok? Hey, manager at her to the list of potential headshots of women who may soon become girlfriend. You know like this is all transactional for Jason Derulo. He's just trying to make more money and get famous, and it's like if you have seen a single Jason Derulo Tiktok, you know that like. Informal and people have called about Jason Derulo being on Tiktok. What's the deal who were then he has become such a big deal but I think it's like I saw he spending so much money in such a huge team helping him make these talks bigger and better. But what he's doing really is ripping off other Tiktok people who are doing this stuff. I and he's kind of bouncing off of that to make something bigger and he's using the kind of like immediate shock you get when You're like Jason Derulo is like big on Tiktok because it's like he's kind of flop. You know even though he has hit, he's kind of flop like he was in cats the biggest new them all you know I think he's them. He acts more like a who then like any anyone he just happens to be an extremely rich and successful who I just don't want him I. Don't think he's them are I don't want him to be in them but I don't think he's at them. anyways. He and Jenna have the same birthday. September twenty. First they have the same birthday but yeah Jenner. From Age rooms I'm pretty sure. It's just freedoms based on what I could see. It's just Jennifer. She's a fitness model. She is an Instagram influencer that is it. There's not like some like interesting nugget that we could find anywhere else about her no, and they're giving the worst press like page six headline during Jason Derulo opens up about model girlfriend Jennifer rooms, baby fever you he's got a full video setup in his house you know in. This new girlfriend, and they're just whatever. But like she's a beautiful fitness model slash influence or you know like doing fine also making tech talks and getting Britain about in the blast and all that stuff and he was like this is a perfect person for me to team up with to add dimension to my fake ass tick Tock. But the thing is we're we dump on Jason Derulo all the time for his like very clearly artificial like. TIKTOK presents, but it's working for him. You know it's he's doing something of course doing something we're only dumping on it because that's working and we're like, how is this working but it's like he is he has like inserted himself to be part of that ecosystem despite being much older and really not in the world of Tiktok but he is like you know he's on the thing we're he'll reach out to other creators held the he'll do this. He'll work with someone else will collaborate it up you know but it feels very much like. In the verses that guy hired a whole Karoo for his like instagram live setup and everybody was like what you know. It just feels very like overwrought. You know home the whole thing is definitely an aspiring actor and the reason I know that it's because back in August of last year, she posted a video of her at the premiere of the Jacob Tremblay picture good boys, and it says. This movie was fire. Good Movie Popcorn flame emoji laughed the whole time I'm the most awkward on carpets like after I walked this, you can take a video with my purse wide open of me pretend to be important can't wait to be at a premiere of movie. I'm in one day at universal pictures like she's Los. Angeles this woman this woman is a loss angeles. I know it's True I. Do love on Tiktok when kids will like do the thing where they like re blog condit's tumbler tumbler talk. But like re blog Jason Derulo stick talks watch them like what the fuck is this like this is so extra like this is so extra what you're doing right now like that to me is my favorite genres of Tiktok.

I my husband. Patrick Mahomes is them I don't think he is is here to her them Okay. I French Patrick? Mahomes. who were them one, two, three, them I guess watched them like even I've seen should about this guy like in tableau which means he's like a them like tablets are talking about his relationships or whatever sack lately I. The only reason I'm willing to give sports guy them is because I see him all over the place. What I look at him, not only do I. Know that sport man that's football that's football that. Plays means he's actually I was like honest with myself to me he's a WHO, but I will admit the fact that I know that he is FA- famous famous enough to be at them I just like the fact that I know that they've covered relationships, I'm like Aren. Them your name mean because they're that's like there's so many SP- relevant popular sports players that they don't cover their relationship for they don't care who they're dating but then you have like Tim Tibo and like those types of guys were like, why do I care who you're getting married to? I. Don't care but you know people do care. It's classic movies of two or. Scratch I like kanter movies who are them one can three then. I. Guess. We know we know what Turner Classic Movies is. We're familiar the lake around for. Twenty thirty years but lake who watches movies like this reminds me of. This with. US Andy Head Wendy Not Bring Wendy backup but Andy had Wendy Williams on watch what happens live and she was like on one and she said you guys play too many movies and in. What and he's like, she's like you play too many movies. I. Just I I can't skipped skipper them turn the channel and he's like he's like you bet yeah. It's. You gotTa play the Clinton. So funny. And by the way it frustrates me that you guys run too many movies. On Bravo. Over really. Yeah. They're not even interesting. Yeah, and I don't I don't stop for the movies. Andy I'm sorry hounds bobby. Allison Krause who were them? Crunch crunch. Alison Krauss who were them, one, two, three, who folk music them? Yes, she likes. country. Music. People. Love Alison. Krauss even people who don't like folk music or like what a voice what a song writer. She's a grammy's artist. That's perfect. She's Grammy's artist. She's a grammys artist Tori Kelly says he's supposedly on the mass singer. I'm going to do a little bit amassing our breakdown next week. I gotTa Watch. Wanted in read some clues but I I think Tori Kelly might be in the mess singer speaking of grammys artists. Highlands even bobby you guys were talking about Pixie cats or well Savannah Christly Pixie car. And if you think Pixie who are them, I feel like they can make or break a career. argue by. Is that. Katy. Perry's career never recovered after she got her cheek that. So does that make it a damn haircut because it's such a big deal when people get it or is it a WHO because it's such a WHO behavior get a Pixie cut And see what happens and see how people are asked. I don't know interested in your thoughts. Crunch, crunch me in quarantine because he goes. Well, let's be clear about the Katy Perry Pixie Cup was a result of her imminent fall from grace. It's correlation non-cooperation that Katy Perry Pixie could came around the same time that things weren't working for but it's also kind of like a pinch of misogyny meaning like we like our popstars we our women to have long hair. It signifies you've signifies something release says something. So whatever but Pixie cuts are they who's them's one, two, three them I think you know what a Pixie cut we look if you say oh so and so got a member when I didn't know a beach you wave was yeah. Everyone was making fun of me. I feel like everyone knows what a Pixie cut. So the pact of a Pixie cut is huge. It's huge impact but I will say the argument against Pixie cut is that if you get a Pixie cut, you get written up by tabloids sometimes. So it's kind of a who he tool you can get you get. Unlike bangs which you also apparently can get written up for us. So I guess that makes me a Pixie cut banks could be who we because they get you tabloid press. Unless you're in the British tabloids in which case you get written up for having fringe. Sorry you get file, but you still get redknapp fringe is just as crucial as banks same thing. Yeah. Hi, Bobby Lindsey. Izza is performing Drew Barrymore. On Drew Barrymore. Barrymore's Talk Show I. Guess We could have known this moment was coming. I thought you might WanNa talk about it also is is a WHO or as them? Okay good form Bella. Thorne Jubeir Bay show has in pulling out all the stops and do I mean all the stops it's like the Tom Green reunion threw me for a loop they pulled out so many stops that I'm saying stop when I'm watching you know I know it's hard to watch I love her and it's hard to watch for me. It's like I don't know what's going on over there but. I only want the best for Juburi morning only one. So. Funny. Yeah. It would be depressed. Yes. Funny Says who were them one, two, three, them I feel like but like Yeah. Reaction to her new song sort of along. I feel like if you if you had asked me this question a month ago I would've said who the wears the album of it all for her has made it very demi like that people really like want and anticipate her I, like her too I. Just I didn't really get the general sense of like the everyone else or whatever control was like the song of that summer I mean the album of that summer that was a huge album even though she didn't want to come out. She's Also her heke she's thinking that was going to say her behavior. She's very picky. She's very particular. Yes, and that is that's a them behavior. Yeah she's a little bit secretive. She's a little bit meticulous. She's not just out here doing whatever I think that she is of them and behaves like Obama and she is. When when what was it song hit different I didn't love it. You liked it a lot. I'm. Not, a huge fan of it, but I was so excited whenever it came out like when she was like new song coming at midnight everyone was like oh my on as much as I thought, it would stick with me but. It's extremely lead single. Where's the album. Extremely lead single it's not it wasn't. It's not meant to be the the sticky saw. I don't think I. think that will come out I rank high reprieve long-term longtime call is two full. Number one is that I was going over my long distance bill which I usually don't have. And I had an eight dollars worth of long distance charges I live in Canada I live on different. If they no sense. So can I bill phone number I didn't recognize. And I was like. Someone's taking my entity, but I realized it's your phone number but I say to my phone, which is why I don't know the phone number by heart. So you only eight dollars because I call so much and. You never play my call. So that'll be eight dollars Canadian, which is probably like thirty cents. American. Second Fold Friend Dresser in my city filming a lifetime movie again lifetime movie intact. And she sang in my friends apartment. Or CONDO and hotel. and. Every my way to the gym. On Fan Watch twenty twenty. So here's the question Fran Drescher, who are them? My friend thinks us. I say she she's kind of eternal. Then settled the argument please. contract. Eight dollars I want it before we handle your friend Drescher problem. I'm going to convert that eight dollars candidate to America which would be six dollars and then I'm GonNa take off a dollar because we did play your call right now we're playing it. So I'm GonNa say if you want to van Moas for five dollars American we'd be happy to reimburse. You does this does not stand for anyone else's the one and only time we'll pay for your long distance bill will approve this request on Van Mo what are we? Counting but we approve. Okay. So Fran Drescher, who were them one two three? Oh you think who I just feel like the nanny is is so near and dear to my heart. Well, it's a nostalgic. She's a nostalgic them. I think like aside from the nanny that's like her main thing like she really didn't do anything else I know the the beautician and the beast. Yes, we stand. But like that wasn't a huge hit. You know that my Bachelor Party Walk All I. Did we It was good though I think maybe I don't know I was wrong. Weird. What a weird. We watched God we watch. We watch the. Bachelor party amazing. Have you an insight into my bachelor party there one of the activities Beautician of the. It was fun and and the other thing I think with her is that she had that comeback show that Sitcom that flopped like wasn't canceled after leg. Minute, and so I just kind of feel like that kind of speaks to what I'm trying to say here. But I'm nostalgic to her. She's got a classic voice. We never forget the Fran drescher voice, but I just do think like I. Don't know. The nanny isn't streaming anywhere. Right? Isn't that a big thing? Well you know our friend Patrick was like I need to rewatch the Ninian by the DVD's because he can't stream it anywhere We just give up good for him, I. Dealing all right. And we were actually talking about this recently, if the nanny started streaming again, it would be huge. It's just like whenever they bring in with shows that people have been demand like girlfriends and Moesha like at the top of fucking right now because these shows have been unavailable for so long and they're like ninety s and. Their huge. Now, you don't remember, but you don't realize it's like the power of something going on streaming is like crazy for someone like I feel who is being interviewed and they were the star of an old show and they were like begging for it to go on streaming just for the just for that not even if they get residuals just for the like impact of a show that you were on somehow getting revitalized like you could get more work from that the sitcoms especially, they're just so easy to watch an there's and whenever their famous successful sitcoms even if you never watched the nanny. Watched girlfriends there are hundreds of fucking episodes. So it's like we're looking for things to do now is the time to drop these shows whenever you find us an old succumbing old ninety Sitcom that you've never watched before and it's on Netflix and you like it guess what you get to watch a hundred and twenty more episodes of the show guess what you know what the show was that I was thinking of that I read. It was once again remember that. Rachel Evan. Sorry that Evan Rachel Whoa once and again. But that's music rights issue will that book. But what I'm saying is it's not streaming it was made by the guy who made thirty something us another show that people are desperate to watch kind of and one on streaming but I think who was saying somebody in once and again was saying like I wish that would stream like I wished that would be something that people watched. Yeah. But I think usually it runs down to music rights issues that's like I know. Plenty of shows have solved that problem I. Guess it just takes a lot of work because were place all the music felicity did it. You know they've? Dawson's Creek at it. Yeah. And it's the same thing with the real world. I would give anything to watch my favorite seasons of the real world again, but they're impossible but anyway. He were done for the day. Thank you listening Thank you for calling. Always we love your calls. The calls are so good I know we say this time, but just like it gives Lindsey and I so much joy to not that you care about our joy our experiences but three fun for us to listen to the calls and texts them to each other.

EP 21 - BECAUSE I SAID SO with Shawn Tina Willis

"Hello. This is Sasha and Dan. This is Stephen and this is shot up. I love it. podcast where we invite our guests to come onto champion and aspect of the culture that they think he's underrated underappreciated joining us today sheep if a southern comedy writer living in Los Angeles who's worked on. HBO'S HBO's at Black Lady Sketch show who lose four weddings and a funeral and they are console and had a brief stint at Shonda the land. She often workshops material at her home with her cat pepper. Welcome Sean Tina Willis. Hi Guys. I'm so happy to be shot up. I love it studio. It's cozy. It's real nice down. Yeah Pot weed plans hanging around. I didn't know if that was public knowledge. I know we're growing our own strain. Yeah the supply as navid listeners of the podcast always wondered what this brain trust and senator looked like so. I'm really excited to be in Emma Command Center. You know this is like my home away from home. You guys are always welcome here. You can stay the night if you want the drum set stool. Great Great Sean. Why are you here today? Besides the fact that it's just nice to have you around yeah. It's a really great Sunday. On Most Sundays I watch a movie we called because I said so. This is the two thousand seven era classic starring. Awan family. Diane Keaton and Amanda Moore A K A Mandy Moore. So I'm here to let everyone know what's up with because I said so. I'm already learning that. Her a full name is Amanda get are all Mandy Samantha's most mandates are Amanda. I guess it makes sense. Many people know Mandy Moore as Popstar as an actress not an entrepreneur yet An and our words you're nineteen. She's The star of a show called. This is us but that old age makeup. Yes and she looks curiously. Liked Diane Keaton. Am I right. She the mom of the kids Oh I just want to pilot. Hey Hey hey I know it's it's it's a big show yet for them rather so you have plenty of time. That's true I do like the doctor from the pilot. He's my favorite character on that show. He might have doctor Dr k right. He's The guy that Dr Ni les facilitates the whole whole thing. He truly does he truly does. He's like the angel that sets the show in motion probably never appears again. No he never. He's the touched by an angel angel there and then he disappears and exactly that I had to go back into the archives of like. Oh yeah that that that creepy he couldn't he wasn't even a doctor what I don't know who knows what they did. What happened between the script gripped and the shooting in airing? I don't know I don't WanNa now. I WanNa keep that magic alive just like the magic of because I said so. By the way I couldn't remember the title I kept messing. It up. Is I would go back to research. I was just because I said so. Something to me catchphrase. It's how Lauren Graham realizes that her mother is meddling Ling and her sister's life chemo man. No one else says the phrase because I said so and by the way Lauren Graham at this point is so like like hot. The zeitgeist right goes like really hollow has happened enough. No more girls. I imagine the girls are over but it's on. ABC ABC family five to seven nights. A week as I never. Yeah they're never over. There's go more boys wherever podcast isn't there. I don't know there's a podcast more guys. I think okay Gilmore guys with Jason Man's Uka so hey well as a guest is leased because he's always been obsessed with this and at the time when I was obsessed with Jay Semantic. 'cause I knew that he was obsessed with girls and I was like it was one of the reasons why I stopped being obsessed with Jason Mexico's overrated. But Hey watch the show. Oh yes okay just like a couple of episodes the one with the doctor a fair now so hearing that you are maybe not into this gilmore girls cadence. What was the experience like for you to be in a movie where it's a lot of a fast talking white women? Oh boy I felt it was a whirlwind of stock and white women. Yeah I mean but you know I'm familiar with Woody Allen Films. You know like there's definitely a lot of cadence that was probably well. There's actually a direct quote guys from Annie Hall in this film on your bones. Yeah Yeah there's a direct quote Diane Keaton's character says my my name is Annie Hall I know but that would be an amazing Quote for you to miss. No when I feel like we should save David for the discussion and ensure because it would fit just right and I love Sasha's research skills and anything you can bring illuminate eight mile of of the movie and deepen it social. I'm here for Sean to hear you talk about it. Sounds like this is a great movie. Why do you think because I said so is a good fit for shut up? I love it okay. Well a few things that ruffle my feathers when you dig around on the Internet first thing that surprised price me. It was finding out that because I said so has exactly four percent on rotten tomatoes. Four four's about forty not forty four four fourteen Stephen. No it is exactly four percent wanted number well single digit a situation like that it's probably Out of like ten reviews probably like four percents so many people writing about the Internet a on the Internet writing about how much they despise this movie. Now I have a lot of theories as to why Partially it's comparing everything. Diane Keaton has done since the seventies. Okay yeah she was any hall she was. What are you gal but careers evolve they adapt? What's also unfair? Diane Diane was nominated for two thousand eight Razzie for her role in this movie. That is correct. Yeah so I watched this movie on the regular. It came at a pretty pivotal point in my life as a youth as an adolescent high school era. Being able to watch this movie and seeing you you know a quirky caterer who has your business a series of girls. I'm Mike the March women of little women. A pack of ladies doing it for themselves themselves together the bond of Sisterhood Motherhood a while in this wild la city. That's something. I still struggle struggle with still the movie resonates at all phases of my life from Highschool Arish on Tina to Sean of this era between nineteen I will say watching this movie and Twenty nineteen the idea that a twenty something in La owns a catering. Business is insane shor-short. I was such a different time. This was like right before everything went down the drain. You could see like Venice was just about to become completely lately unaffordable. But Millie R tischler character. She got an she started something. Good and maybe we can workshop where we think millions now but yeah. Yeah that's Partially maybe I could see how. It's a little believable. That a twenty something could own a catering business sure. But that's you know that's not the that's that's the changing times is certainly not the movies fault unless it is maybe now. I didn't think about this before right. Now maybe this movie is to blame for all of America's problems. Wow I feel I feel rashy. That's quite accusations Stephen. I'm just you know now. It's just came to me right there. I'll work through it while I'm thinking about that Sean. Can you tell us a little bit about the plot of because I said take happily so all right. I guess a way one could describe the movie. If you're looking for holes that as a mother gas lights our daughter order which could just be called parenting right like there is that element of it but Diving deeper into the movie. I know. And Love Daphne Wilder a mother whose love knows no bounds boundaries. That's just being a mom right She's the proud mom of three daughters stable psychologists Maggie sexy and our Everett May ensler milly milly when it comes to is an insecure psycho in order to prevent her youngest daughter for making the same mistakes. Stake she did Daphne decide set me up with the perfect man all right so we are entering into a meddlesome mom. Not just a mom who doesn't uh-huh boundaries but a mom who sets up an online dating profile bates men in under false pretenses. Looks like a snack while doing it. Frankly so much so where you. Just think Daphne is out to town and out to feast with Steve Ray and unsavory man option option was expecting a bunch of hookups for her in this film. But I think there's only one I was honestly surprised until you know. She starts hooking up with an older male character. I was kind of assuming that the Tom Everett Scott character was gonNA end up with her l.. For sure yeah. No Tom Aka Jackson who is of course the White Knight who sales then and has two thousand era charcoal suit floppy hair. Blue eyed dog coming in at the at the very end this as the White Knight Daphne has been looking for Yes for herself but mainly only for her daughter so he they wind they dine he orders for her which is a gross move. And we'll talk about Jason later but you know who's watching this whole thing. Go down a hunk named Johnny Johnny musician already in the hat johnny and and the Browns Fedora. I thought he was a magician for most neither. Just because you don't really see people in two thousand nineteen wearing a fedora unless they're coded as like a magician or unless they're yes. Well actually. I did no one musician. In New York Doc Who's wearing a fedora? And he looked like this guy but then like I found out like he had like a hair. He wasn't proud of and covering it so I kept waiting for like maybe this guy to bust up like this hat and then like big bald spot. Yeah and then like she still falls in love with him despite all that while that'd be beautiful beautiful. Hey that's the writer in me always making these housing at the close in this movie except for Diane Keaton of course because she's flawless flawless in every movie do not age well because the they put Johnny and a series of waistcoats vests wide leg. Men's dress pants and square toed shoes news. It's a Janis Amass. But he's also a hunk because he's Gabriel mock from new and. Everyone wants to swim in his pool of Brown eyes. So Yeah Daphne sees trouble. She calls them from jump. He is irresistible. He's a tasty morsel. He's wrong for her daughter. So obviously johnny who looks like a magician sneakily takes over card is catering business because just hearing about vis vis a vis undo this the sensitive soul this the Mili- girl he can enough so he is. Obviously we know going to investigate indicate and I couldn't tell if his meeting her when he does meet them anymore character if that was by chance chance I forgot that he picks up that business cards because of the light of hand and later it was a pickup shot. They shot later. It was not a great pickup because he really pay attention. I thought that was like his card showing Diane Keaton like. Hey if you reconsider but no now I realize well. That's A. That's a little creepy or then for sure. This is all happening while Diane keeps character is interviewing and and the very fast pace right Suitors for her daughter and none of us maple. Many men surprised or put off by the fact that they're all into that right and they're like if demaim looks pretty good and she's going on six this morning. We all go big birthday coming up. I can't even begin to tell you how hot her daughter is going to be right. So these are men like John. Ross Bowie and offscreen Tony Hale. Tony Hale appears later in the movie and he says that he was he was interviewed by Daikin. We don't see that part though. I was thinking about that. Why not and the answer? Answer is because it's the reveal that he was one of the interviewees. Yes when he's in the chair with sister Lauren Graham exactly so it was. Oh wow how he was there too. I don't know I mean more people that surprise but he's speaking amazing and I know he's great. I mean individual performances reign supreme Pre We've got Tony Hale Gary from Veep Lord and Grandma's retreat Mandy Moore consistently called a treasure. Ms Film and a charm monster so she sings. She thinks she dan couple times makes she makes popstar face but you now we know she is POPs Shaima singing a little too. Well I feel like they should a put a little more grit on that saying in the three daughters in the mother have like a singing. Act that they like to do get together. Most people do family band. I'll ever want Mandy Moore is going on one hundred percent Mandy Moore in the scene. Think that's just one of the ironies right of this film filmmaker behind and that's because she's also with Jani right who's a musician But we know she knows music better than any Johny in this film. We know that Johnny is really a magician. Yes but Johnny and Millie by and when they do they have the whole this. This one of my favorite meat. Cute the static clean moment and the button balloon. And they're dressed like serving volleys to each each other and melting in pools of Brown eyes. And every time I see it I mean did I watch it to four times this weekend. Yeah I I did. And I'm getting some really big faces right now. yeah yeah still. The plot thickens essay Cambridge deepens. Meddling mom Daphne's plan goes awry because what happens does meet Johnny. They do start to follow each heather. Exclusively let's it. Seems like he planned it hunt to kill hunting. Take my pray in my Volvo. You know. Look he's an artist. Pickup artist peacocks. The all of that totally tracks mum wants to get her paws on all of it. Right it she finds out milly dating the unaccept- ask Johnny when she should be keeping her eyes on. The marriage prize wins dating. Oh yeah both men dead Jason as who sh MOM. Tom Wants me to procreate with eighth APP and by Tom Everett's gone. Yeah and that thing. You do then boy does he does he. He do that thing a few time. View view time. The movie is refreshingly accepting male sexuality in which is something you still see in movies now. Plenty of discussion of the female orgasm open acknowledgement that these women are having having sex premarital sex in the same time with two different men right men to bridge those conversations with one of the more important limit of if their lives their mother who we find out has never had an orgasm. And you know what if I had him on like that. I would tell her everything as well because because who doesn't want to have a mom like Diane Keaton I do Yeah everyone wants to my mom. Diane Keaton Shout to the MOMS I will say my mom is more more like Elements of Daphne and Matt. My mom has tried to match make me multiple times constant all the time but The matchmaking scheme for for Daphne Goes Awry it comes out both men find out that millie is dabbling around vetting her options. which at no point point do either of these men talk about how you know this is like an exclusive relationship? Let's be monogamous. You know and Millie seems seems like if they had that conversation she would make a decision. But you know like they're just exploring the everyone's exploring but Jason who I do have problems with the movie upon you know rewatch number two and three He's the type of guy who just was convinced. He had milly from the hook mess US I saw you. I knew you're mine. Super Creepy died way where it's like come back to my stainless steel concrete loft designed myself because I am an artist Arta talent and also I'm GonNa get mad at you at points and make you feel really bad and really clots your club. Yeah she is the most disgusting laugh. Oh God there's a lot of Mandy Moore's north but yeah Jason Basically wants to change all that he wants her womb we all know that and and he also uh-huh secretly I think just wants daphne the mom johnny though also responds very poorly to finding out that she was seeing another man. That's the tear jerker that at the moment every time that gets me when you see Gabriel Mark Aka jazzy Johnny. Get his heart broken. He's a man ripta pieces. I imagine him going home and ripping off his waistcoat and yelling child because he has one it does have a child. He has a child who seems to be mostly raised by his own. Father played by disgraced actor. Stephen Collins this portion of the movie that doesn't hold up mill not so much Stephen Collins at all he did play husband life on the first swabs club. They had some initial chemistry which they take to the next level and movies so as of course millions. Millie is experiencing the break-up of both of both of these men. Diane really has a second chance at love. She's feels like her. Life is ending upon her sixtieth birthday. Day like she's not a lover Sex object and she has a surprise romance with Johnny's father. Like who doesn't want that for a Diane Keaton and for you're a mom of any age. It's a tender to me because it's movie where giant gets her groove back we're Jaffna gets her groove back in Daphne and Johnny are become to find out more alike than they ever thought. They're both prideful and stubborn. Daphne MOMS Johny which probably they have all the energy racial men and on Janis household. They've got the father the son the holy the Holy Ghost for one. And they're so daphne can be a mom figure writing Johnny took back towards Milli explaining it. That way sounds really creepy But it happens it works then we get the happily ever after. Go back to the green screen where we started in the beginning of the film The film opens with the weddings of the older daughter's Lauraingraham and pipe repair bill. And then the movie does quick. Fake out 'cause they think Oh. Now we're we're seeing the third wedding of Mandy Moore but no no no. This is not the wedding where she is getting married. This is her first catering And so then at the end of the movie I feel like again. It's maybe he's supposed to be a fake out. That Mandy Moore is perhaps getting married for real this time but no no no no. It's Diane Keep It gives you what you want not the way you expect it any store and we end on a beautiful vista. The family very solid green screens out to the lighting crew. Ever handle that. You've got the family and a rainbow of POLKA DOTS. which is the reading motif around the movie there? Ah Singing. The boys are jamming So you've got these wilder girls and Janis men altogether in your yeah perfect movie anything else. Great jumping off point for us to really dig again. Yeah you know hearing you lay it out. Sounds like a movie for sure. Where does it stand for you? I'm not asking you to rate at this point where does it stand for you in the World Rom coms like are you big Rom com person and if you are sean. Does it belong at the top of the pyramid the bottom. Yeah I appreciate you ask him that. I am have traditionally been more calm Gal not everyone. Not every single ROM. Combat Net flicks is thrown at every month. But you know the classics the love. Actually do I watch it with my brother every holiday season. Yeah we do we are are we are. We are those siblings where we're going to watch it together so in the world of Rom coms that are dear to me because I said so ah holds a high place in the Pantheon. How many times do you think you've seen this movie? Oh Yeah how many times how many you pieces of rice in of all how many pieces of stand on the beach where Tony Hale in Washington but yeah so so if I had to guess every time on TV. When I was a youth I would watch it at the DVD and still plays every week down stars? Thank you I looked drop online. It exactly. What's at every week? It's on somewhere and do you have stars for that reason. Definitely yes so if I had to guess I'd say anywhere between Forty nine to fifty one times anywhere between between. But you know I'll be cooking and watching ed or just need to get a little head a little little. Bit of the Daphne. Milly Kooky Wilder woman doing their thing I cam. Am Sama Huge Gilmore Girls Fan but the formula in this movie but the banter the MOMS daughter's going at it talk and honestly it's Perfection Lauren. Graham is very very skillful actress like she does things her face and the very sort of small-scale but but there's such specific things that she does that you just bind to whatever is going on in her head like actually she's she's a really really amazing comedic actress perhaps perhaps underutilized in this movie used well knowing that Lauren Graham is our safe-space to go to. She's the families therapists. She's a actual psychologists religious. So she's she's the grounded one. She's the one hold never one together but she's the one who should have known better who should have warned her. Beloved love a dear sister Melanie that mom was meddling in a way that perhaps speaks of Some huge narcissism. But she. You know she doesn't really have a choice choice because Diane. Keaton has raised these women in this way. They can't defy her. I'd like to talk a little bit about this relationship. Sasha you said you you wish you had a relationship like this that this is he's like aspirational through this that close of a relationship. I guess there's just something like as much as she is a helicopter parent right. She's also very a fragile and she is not threaten on threatening to me like like I feel like she's manageable as a mom like an an like. Maybe that's Justice Jackson position with what I had to go through like to me. She's like somebody you can deal with and if you decide decide to go against what she says is right then you can do that. You can see the good intention and wish you can see her. The thing thing of love and movies I'm inspired to write like inner generational things get to learn like. Oh wait. Parents are humans too and they have like needs and wants and the movie hits all of those points and we get some really like tender moments. Where Millie and Daphne apart from the especially from the other sisters are able to be really honest with each other and get into Daphne's maybe not healthy relationship with millions dad and to the point? Where Dow Daphne as an adult woman Mun approaching sixty has never had orgasm now? Is that the best way to a two for mother and daughter to bond. No but it's like just an entry Into how like grounded the movie can be at times. And how like the performance that Mandy and Diane like just two beautiful like McEnroe and McEnroe junior going up volleys in supporting the back and forth and watching leak caliber performance. I love to watch John McEnroe and his son play tennis very go. Yeah beautiful by the way speaking of like acting Diane Keaton. She was nominated for a raspberry right. Yes Phil Berry Raspberry in which lost to Lindsay Lohan for. I know who killed. Wow Wow and I actually did not feel like she was bad in this film. I thought she was really good day. Banking I actually really really liked wish was doing to match in Q.. Tone on this film like it is like a very abide like panicky caper. There's a lot of that and let's just talk about the previous toll wind up toy car chasing where it's like really big over the top humor and you just get to see what an amazing physical comedian Diane Keaton remains with her sidekick cooper the dog as they chased eighth million Johnny Down Solid Dog. Work there yeah down the one. Oh one hour of the Animal Hammer Film. hoops is underrated. For sure. I would say for me. I felt the opposite any seen that she's in with another human being is is very good. I think that scene where she the in Mandy Moore talk about the ways that Diane Keaton was unfulfilled by life in her previous marriage not just physically but also emotionally eh despite the fact that Diane Keaton doesn't actually say anything in that scene because she's lost her voice the character. That's a really good seen in most of the scenes that she's interacting with other people. I think are really good. It is the scenes where she is not interacting with another person. That made me amend the note that I made saying Danke not bad two. Oh no actually she she. Physical comedy was not working. Do you mean like the scene where she's at the computer. The computer scenes the driving seen seen anything. That's like slapsticky. I think Diane Keaton. She's not approaching it at the same level as she's approaching the scenes. You know like the conversational seats which different types of scenes. I don't know it feels like she's giving those less to me. It's interesting to me because I think that what she was doing with the direction. So spoiler alert to me. The direction of this movie is where this movie fails. I can't even tell you who the director of the film has but to me. He curiously directed Heather's and a few other movies about subversive women doing their thing. Yeah I don't know like to me. There's there's the scene where it is Dan Keaton's character's sixtieth birthday that all the daughters have been freaking out about and getting ready for and she loses her shit like this where she loses her shit and I had to stop and rewind a few times To really see what she's doing with her so like just the technique of how she was handling this two motions at the same time as she was jogging them and going back and forth between. I'm a reasonable person into I'm just losing my shit. Oh my God I was like. Wow this is pretty good like I really liked that but it was. You know my opinion on the acting in the film because you know what the Gabriel Mac guy. Yeah I was. I was a little bit annoyed by his voice. I don't know if he's the same in suits like does he care this is the American accent is probably probably improved after this. I didn't realize he was not in America. I could be wrong but I I believe leave. He's yeah I think that's a a fake American accent but if we're talking about who. The appeal of Gianni Versace dead. I Jason Johnny for me when thout every time. Yeah and the American actor and film producer. So it's just the way that he talks that he was. It's not American born in the Bronx New York for years. I've always just assumed that guy was not American to Jewish parents. Oh yeah you know what I like was was raising California from the age of five so there was no point at which point he was like lost in Serbia somewhere at least not officially now. We're either view charmed by him or were you so distracted by his like. If you magician. Is he a pickup artists. When they hat was off I thought he was attractive? Okay and I like those Brown eyes. I agree eh but it was also like I wouldn't fall came either. There's a moment between him and many more than I do. Think our charming but yeah the hat really threw me. I mean it is a part of me for me that does not hold up but you know they're they're a lot of moments where I liked that he he is the person the only person that movie to call out. I besides Laura Ingraham. What if you don't know what's right for your daughter and he in having a character stay that and try and check Diane? I really appreciate it more like finally someone with some sanity ignore his Zini hat but this man knows what he's talking about. He's so upset about his child. That has a very charming. I mean. And he's like he's showing up after after the first night right he takes her on. Oh yeah and he takes to selfishly. He's places of employment you'll be fair. He wasn't being responsible business owner because one of of his employees had to bow out but I should have rescheduled the date. He should have sure but for us to learn about like. Oh look how sensitive Johnny is like. Look look this guy like teaching children. This is adorable and the older people will sure sure so. They connect and a lot of ways. That are deep in profound. Stephen say Stephen I agreed with Sean. I think you definitely said something in that. You feel is true that feels affirmative then but then then to take her home. He knows his wild son will be annoying. Yeah that little. Lionel was was a a lot that I call that meets the family too soon scene but she loves you. She's in for it but here's the thing. This is why I love this movie and yeah. I'm getting streaky. Mopti all right you have these moments as a lady out here in the streets where you do have moments. That's where you like forecast the future so to me. That was one of those moments. Where like you learn too much too quickly about someone and based on that information you you start irrationally building a future together so that was that moment like yes? It's too much too soon. Yes we get to see like how tween charming not even charming. They're all monsters that house and set them on fire. But what you what you do get to see for the manically for the movie is like. Oh Wow this. This is a woman who struggles with her own. Inner Generational stuff misses a man who has his own stuff and like isn't it really cool that they can find a way to be together in all. It's crazy. Muck both have pretty healthy. Lives like that's the thing it's pretty. I think one of the issues have Rome calms in general. Is that for the most part. They're not really dealing with human experience. That is there such an escape this genre then I dealing with the human experience that we kind of most of us go through like of some shade is really fucked up in our lives and only problem in their life is that they are not in a relationship right as for other for us that that that might be one out of one hundred right. I've got ninety nine problems and relationship and so sure and so like like even though he johnny has a kid and then you know spoiler alert. He didn't die or anything they just broke broke up but the his dad just fulltime child. We'll set out there. Sure in the liver by the Venice canals by the way. But here's here's what we know about the movie now like number one real estate market is GonNa Change Mandy. Probably lost fat sweet loft and business on their home. Mom did mention that the loft costs stew right. He probably took a job as an addict Zach and sold out she is probably a corporate cater or as maybe planning in pop up some instagram now. Military's definitely dear. God Military Jason's big buildings are empty. Hallways there's like like you know people squandering. Yeah Bet Jason made out alright in the financial services the financial did and he honestly sorry. Sorry to jump around. I have a lot to say about Jason. But he is a great a creep to me like a Jason has a bad for Daphne. That's not why he's a creep but in the scene where millie takes her stand right were after she over he. After she goes to the WASP ASP dinner. Den With Daphne Daphne. End Milling go to dinner with Jason's family who are just like the White American Dream Team and there are like super weird by the way. No one's not white Americans. Yeah Yeah it's Millie has one employee who is a black woman exactly as one hundred percent. Yeah Sweet Caucasian fantasy. So so does take our stand with Jason where this is part of like what it's like to date or you try these guys and you try and figure out like who can I be with you. Are you a safe person. And it turns out like Jason's not a safe person. He's been lying. The whole time has the Joneses has a bad bone on Boehner. For Good. Old Daphne Right. And he's like it's okay that you lie and it's okay that I hate your laugh and it's okay that we're we're still going to have a beautiful life together. You're going to yeah you broke my family heirloom and then I was abusive towards you like Jason is a creep. And I don't know if you guys have seen this but upon my re watches Jason Actually looks like he wants to kill milly men knowing that the mom is like okay well clearly like Jason wants to kill millie the mom is going to like help him bury her body or pay resources to do it. And then they're gonNA take a sweet milk bath breath together like Jason is. I WANNA see that bill. Exactly Jason is just such a creep to me and that's probably my least favorite thing about the movie. Brit Scott's face and then his hair and then his clothes he could definitely yeah star in the remake of American psycho. Yeah so one of his buildings the here detected as we're talking about like everything about that movie like that character is not I mean maybe for a little while you're supposed to think oh she could end up with him But he certainly not intended to be good guy. You're wondering if am I supposed to think that the guy in the hat is going to get like and then eventually admit admit Ya not too complex by. He takes off the hat and then like in case you forgot as he lives his hand again. We see the Tattoo. I too right. Yeah because there's a two broken hearts. Because he's heartbreaking Mojo. Oh yeah well at least because he breaks hearts not because his heart is broken. Well I thought so. Oh Yeah no lucky broke a few arts right like when he was in the latest sensitive and he is a sensitive tender musician artist magician and now now father. Johnny has a lot on his plate guys and now jobs of you know why he lives with his pops definitely seems teams like the movie like they had to cut a scene that takes place at the Magic Castle right. It definitely feels like they shot a scene at the magic castle where Janis talking to all of his his friend who do close up magic. But they'd cut it all. They stole it right. The scene they didn't have to permit shot guerrilla style in the Magic Castle. Definitely I also watch that version of the move out. Here's the thing I quite literally would watch any version of this movie with these characters. I like I would watch a serious just about the wilder women what I write that series. Maybe to watch series about Jason murder ladies in keeping the minimal bath you you know I would watch series just about Daphne getting her groove back like I just like deeply attached to these characters and everything that happens is to this especially Tony Hale rain at least for me. Now Sean. I've heard you talk about Daphne and talk about Millie and I've heard you talk about Maggie Baggy but there's a fourth wild or woman in this movie. I'm wondering if you have any kind of deep read on. May the character played by Piper parallel Guess Piper pair boo of coyote ugly fame. Sure I know from the cheaper by the dozen films vary so in my hedge. She's an extension of whoever ever she was in coyote ugly and it's unfortunate that she doesn't get enough screen time she's just kind of like the need the Raunchy reliable sexy. She wears a Thong. Oh she's the wildcats. She's hooking up with her husband. Wow on the phone with her sisters and Mother Talk Doc about boundaries. None of them have them the. There's one scene where you can see. Learn Graham repair both husbands like react to the way that these women behave all the time and I thought that was pretty funny. Not that like you need more of it. But that's like a at least a nice insight into now versus and women with A. Maybe they had more stuff with Piper. Maybe in ten years people realize would the greatness of this movie Pano. We'll get the extended. Snyder cuts all of Piper pair. Boosts stuff but no. Oh she's just like an excuse to have an unfortunately placed Thong and the like. Oh we get to know the woman. By the Victoria's secret underwear but what year is this. It's two thousand seven so like Obama is not even the president. I bet a lot of people don't even know who Barack Obama is yet on. This movie comes out. It really makes you think like to US probably right now. I imagine twelve years ago. Doesn't feel that far removed from today but to watch this movie it really does the self ancient so ancient and a lot of landlines and my cordless phone phone line dating is just primitive is just in the earliest stages it's looked down upon by. Daphne such a wild woman because she's willing to go to such strict strict. Well maybe she's dotted. Mom You guys shut. This is the moment where we turn against. I've listened into those happened. Wow Okay so yeah daffy makes her issues Milley's issues which is just like a like millions. Actually she doing the best she can with this giant raging narcissist. Mom that she has who's like well intentioned but also like subjecting her daughter to the dangers of like online dating early early two thousands. I don't think she's a narcissist. I think she's a control freak thing that's where she lands. Psychologically but you know what I am not a therapist. You don't. I think like wilder decker is blamed by Lauren. Graham so what do I know you. Don't think the whole movie is kind of a Manifestation of Daphnis late midlife crisis generations. Right let's about generations about women who I couldn't do the shit that their daughters are doing now right couldn't have an orgasm. Tragic tragic sixty years right flashes the fan. We'll see that way. I am defending a lot. I know my main points again. Dang kittens this great love Tony Hale scenes but he steals them while the last one I was GonNa Bring Tony Hale back. Of course the king falls right on time time right. Every time I see that I'm I'm dying very stark discussion of suicide by his care. A disdain h this would not have his therapist basically makes fun of him for being suicidal him to pull the trigger. Essentially you could argue that because like an early stage like immersion therapy like just do it already. I mean not that. It's a great response but you know for him in that moment he's like Oh someone care. Someone cares about to talk about me. Even if I'm breaking even if my doctors breaking talked talked about this character is so ever-present and sad in Lauren. Graham's career that she talks to her sister Mr Not yes. 'cause she tells him who it is but she's not saying a patient of mine she's saying those Guy Right there. ooh And by the way you cannot tell us that oh person. Here's an open window job out. I think it's actually pushing them towards doing that even if you think think that. It's a cry for help. Further person if you're wrong encouraged there because I know people basically pointing pointing in Ghana. You're right like if you go like so you think you can shoot me. Go ahead and shoot me. Apparently if you do say that you actually very likely to be shot like people don't go like. Oh aw this guy or this lady's to to brave. I don't think I'm GONNA do that. People do tend to shoot if you tell them to shoot so I assume that the same part of of your brain that goes. Oh I'm suicidal. Somebody tells me go kill yourself. All you know what I'm GonNa go do that on a deeper level could be more not be encouraging Tony Hale to get out into the world and put himself out there more now with this I probably I four. She just walk out great way to meet some. Yeah Yeah Yeah exactly he got out into the world and something fun and surprising happened. This movie is good for everyone. WHO's there is a character? Happy about being hit in the led by cake. He is just shocked. We don't get the glimpse until like the aftermath. Imagine does he then take a hard right. Turn and just walk right into the ocean. I would like to see it as a turning point for his character. It's like you know what I took a risk. I got caked but sometimes in life. We're just GONNA get kicked kicked as does Daphne. They're out various gags in the movie so they do a lot of fun cake. Stuff vodka. Kick bits if you like cake bits. What's this smoothie falling falling car breaking? Yes dogs humping which is funny great cooper the dog the sound effects. Yes Daphne's perhaps burgeoning addicted addiction to adult binder which is not a porn site. You'll uh-huh definitely thousand seven. It's all the same just one big blur one good websites. Mov bodies dogs dogs and sheep because you do hear sheep. Apparently one of the bits where Daphne is like kind of getting off to what's happening and so it's coupe and they're both like you know I am at over the top Broadway. That probably Stephen Turn the movie off having moments together and then probably the more unbelievable the thing about that. Whole bit of Daphne versus technology is when she calls her gateway computing specialist immediately on the? Yeah that would never happen. Sasha had you ever heard of because I said so before. There's no what about you Stephen. I think I've heard the title. The poster looks familiar. You know it's a very Sharp point by Diane Keaton in the face of Mandy Moore My my girlfriend. Megan has vivid memories of that poster though has also never but yeah now this is definitely the first time I watched it. It was successful in the box office. This right like the film play second in total box office receipts in this first week in release saw this somebody. Many moms and daughters went to see best when it came out in February. Oh seven it was probably i. Didn't I didn't have that relationship at that point trying to set you you up. Oh yeah definitely with any verizon store employees so yea the movie made Lake Sixty plus million. Can we qualify success. I like to maybe read the reviews from the time. You know some notable critics from rotten tomatoes like we said this does have a four percent and that is out of one hundred and fifty seven review. This is a a little known film to the critics. Going Down Scott Tobias WHO's reviewing for the AV club at the time? But then went onto write for the dissolve. He he said any relationship between the world of because I said so an actual human behavior is purely coincidental. Sean on any reaction to this all right Mr Av club. He must not have a mom and was born in an egg. And that's all all I have to say about that. Ao Scott From The New York Times wrote because I said so is an exercise in deliberate mediocrity with chuckles and heartwarming. Heartwarming moments distributed as carefully as nuts and a factory-made Brownie. Who Hates Brownies? Even if they're factory-made you eat a little debbie snack cakes. So we'LL I. I looked at who gave this positive views. They're six positive. Fresh fresh reviews have hundred seven. All of them are white men So then I tried to find some critics who are women who whose names they recognize that I found a couple horn today from the Washington Post. She said what the filmmakers tried to play for. Laughs isn't funny it's creepy okay. Well we know at least one character is Crete lease lead chasing the murderer. Is the dog murder and coupes. Yeah Cooper's problematic apps you know there were like ten coopers and they were all like this guy is the best picking up the remote. This guy's the best at humping so just like rotating so golden retrievers car window. The should have had it. Looked like Cooper was driving always thought all all five at Ku should've been at the wheel but let's talk about our personal reactions to this film. I saw the film and when I started watching it I hated it for quite a while for the first scene ours. Like I can deal with this LE- let me walk out the comeback through. It can't stand the green screen. It's just a lot of rum com stuff that I can't handle to begin with and then slowly but surely I started liking it enough. The Diane Keaton the Dog Tony Hale people dying king the Dog Tony Hale and this was enough for me like you know is not going to be fair but I will take the ten point scale and up with Annie Hall at ten and another reason why I I can't put any any attend is because there is a direct reference direct just slightly changed quote when Johnny Me Slides in for the first time and he's joining us ly landslide. He's lied to her alive. He sits just in front of her for a while. They talk about old his guys that may or may not be okay for the introduced to her daughter violent. He's like I want to meet your daughter. You're like I want to be the one and she's like this is never going to happen because you are going to break her heart so then he says to her. I love being reduced to a cultural cultural cliche. I Seen Annie Hall Launch Times Okay but I also went online and I was like let me. Just get the feel of Annie Hall again like I watched the trailer. And there's the quote where Woody Allen's character approach is a woman and he's hitting on her and as in this conversation this party he has this like long diarrhea like are you like the liberal upper class woman who lives in upper west side and she went to this college and he just like fleas stopped me from keep talking because I just embarrassing myself further and further sure and she says I love being reduced to cultural stereotype retype so the only thing that's different is serotype in cliche right. So there's direct reference in this film so if Annie Hall because I love Woody Allen's films still still and I know there's ongoing discussion of can we still love the work of a man. That's been disgraced. Then what's this film because I said has I said so. Oh you were getting in. Yeah is at a generous for. I know this is probably really surprised because I've been defending I. I'm over here shook us. They say I Yet you're entitled title to Your Opinion. I don't feel defeated at all. I'm not here to defeat you right. Sure but he went from two to four from me and I would have been neutral. Where I'm like doc sure but I still like Rom coms? I think I'm a bad person. To Rate Rom coms person period. Edit and I'm a bad person to talk about Rahm cops because I don't like them but I do like Woody Allen which makes me even worse person so like what. What am I even doing here? Just get up and leave by SIA. Stop Stop Stop. Stop now back. It's it is helpful here this and ns first-time podcasts participant longtime listener. I've noticed that the the world of shut up I love it doesn't and perhaps This is not a shots fired. Make Room for a Whimsey of Rom com where you suspend suspend your disbelief and the things that we all WanNa feel hope and love and chance a new beginning. It's true Stephen and I Very different in many ways but I totally agree we might be just the wrong crowd for this film and again maybe students going to give it a ten would do I know knows nobody knows. Nobody does replant plan anything. It's just happening organic encouraging to hear that there was a shift that maybe was in the heart space. That took it for you for a two to a four one. You know think about before watching this. It was nothing exist. Yeah now for Sasha Gotcha at least it exists. Yes Stephen What about you. Where does because I said so Stanford You I? For my scale I was looking more for Maybe toward the mother daughter relationship to see that in a movie is very engaging thing for me because you know I have not experienced the mother daughter relationship. So it's a way for me to get a glimpse into what that's like right so if I'm thinking about a mother daughter relationship I'm pro. I won't go wild at heart I'll say Lady Bird from the last couple of years the Greta gerwig great film very intimate depiction of the the nuances of the relationship between a mother and a daughter beautiful place. He's had that he can't do that so that's a nine or ten. While by the way you disagree about me right now. If that's a nine or ten I think because I said so would to be a three So there was no growth. Where you though not really? I did not have that kind of personal arc while watching the film. I had a tiny art but I no I heard it and I'm I was Mu. I'm over here. You know just really. It's part of the why they wanted to get on an advocate for it because it does crack open a heart heart space like all nut just gets in there and wherever you were actually I'll give it a four on reflection since we've been talking about it those scenes where Diane Diane Keaton is interacting one on one with other characters not like the speed dating scene but specifically that scene with Mandy Moore Mandy. It's it is it is definitely affecting especially because these women moments ago were having a big fight right and you can see. See the way that that relationship May have its ups and downs even in the matter of a couple of hours right but they're still that tight bond there. I can't be broken. Which is beautiful? Can I just say the mood. Has I mean it feels. It's always felt cozing here but I've never felt closer closer to you to people within right now haw yeah I yeah I just think too. Much of the movie is not that so much of the movie. Is The slapstick capstick. That doesn't work for me. I overall think Mandy. Moore's performance in this is a little weak at times. It seems like she's Adrift In this movie without a paddle. She does. I do a lot of cutesy doll. Wide I- blinky blink blink blink which is so easy for her because his dad that gas. There's definitely things to alike in this movie which obviously is true because Sean has Graphs drawn to it so firmly for the last twelve years. Let's hear about it. Sure so I really like to get on here and you know Talk about the movie Put forth my appreciation for most host all of Mandy Moore's performances and you know my scale in the ranking it and the Pantheon of mother daughter movies which I love to watch by the way so for me there's joy luck club which is another intergenerational story of mothers and daughters others oscar-nominated so that would be the top tier for me. Maybe not a lady bird which I do love but just just different. That's more coming wing of age to me. Their step mom which was also written by. That's a movie. Yeah ruined by the same writers because I said so and so for me because I said so it was not up there with those movies and in the hall of fame of mother daughter movies. mermaids anything with Barbara Moonstruck INSTRUC- just offering a few Oscar winners. So it's not in that realm though performance moments from Diane and Mandy Very well could and should have been should never been razzie nominated so for me the movie sustains a solid seven seven point three I mean it would have been a ten and oh seven for me but the times have changed all of us for all of us you L. so they were really important in what mostly pushed pushed down for me. It was Jason The serial killer like Tom Everett Scott consistently consistently like he ruins the movie for me. Sasha I have a question for you go ahead you are milly dating a jason and a Johnny. Which one do you choose hard question? And it's not a hard question. I would choose the architect guy. I had a feeling I and I don't think it's the best ideal choice for me. But that's all I got right. It's not because I liked Jason Right is because I don't like Johnny. I don't like he's Fedora. I'll never forgiven for that first impression. You don't like son. I don't like you sign in bed. I bet you the other guys better even think Jason's better and that's what I was thinking you. You want to find a johnny in the streets Jason and the sheets all I. I mean I'd rather I'd rather sleep if I had to sleep. Leap was somebody from this film right. We all I'm saying no I would have to go with architect. What if we put Tony Hale in the mix you know I mean I want to adopt him but like building doesn't have to work with having such weird sex hangups like like like he wants? He wants to be an actor you know or or he wrong with that If a guy wanted to diaper with flurries we're but I'd Wanna Johnny NBA sheets in the St okay minus the minor door to me. It overwhelms everything. What about you? which sister would you do Stephen if you which sister well that's that's that's that's unfair? I guess if I had to choose a sister I'll go with the one that should not be in film mm-hmm the sexy one. She's sexy right so like go with her. Sure that now if I was going to choose between Johnny Jason Who who would you sell your bright like neither of them are great option would grudgingly choose Johnny Okay and as a foreigner and I would be so disappointed in myself like so quickly? Try To say you would be wearing Polka dot dresses arrested and going to like wasp branches. But I don't think you'd be any less happy than you would be with. Jani right like Johnny. Also Jason a lot more by Johnny I would just dominate. Like fucking cannot stand you fucking kid and get out of the house again. We're talking like in the world. There's only Johnny. I'm not like no pursuing Jason actively in this world like this is a world where everybody is dead but there's no women no man there's only two people right and I have to choose one. She's jails it's like it's weird to buckle up and we have to find the other guy woop looking at Johnny and I'm not GonNa make it against Jayson trees and we'll he would yeah and he would have designed the bunker so he would know all the traps and holds gotta stick with him. I'd rather die with Johnny in a sweet jazz harmony. Then go down. He's child yeah. Yeah Lionel Lionel wine online on why. Why fine old boy? Sasha do you have anything that you have come across in in recent days that you would like to tell our listeners to shut up and love I recently. We washed steamboat. Bill Junior a film from nineteen eighteen. Twenty something with Buster Keaton. And you know I don't. I'm not the person who like I'm film lover but it doesn't mean that our love old Hollywood the shirt. I'm not a big Charlie Chaplin person but if we can liked liked so much buster Keaton in this film like was. I've seen the the general and other forms before and I always loved them and they just watching steamboat. Bill Junior and being very amused very in the edge of my seat. I won't say laughing out loud so hard but I would say just being fascinated with the world and the gags and the work that they put on into into to this film is amazing and just the best gag at the very end where you think. The actor was going to die but they pull it off. I highly only recommend US film. It's not underrated but it's nobody watches old stock anymore. Check it out buster. Keaton in steamboat. steamboat Bill Junior. What about you? The day that we're recording is the birthday of the Fella who wrote RT music Andrew Hayworth Birthday Andrew and so as a birthday gift to him. My recommendation for the audience is going to be day.

Dear Prudence: The "Feeling Guilty" Edition

"You're listening to this week's excerpts from the prudent podcast to get the full length. Members only version every week join slate plus at slate dot com slash pretty pod. You're you're Putin. Prudence? Dear prudence. Here. Do you think that I should contact him again help? Thank you. Hello and welcome back to dear prudence as always. I am your host Daniel Berg. Today's show was recorded live at the Bravo theatre center in San Francisco on March seventh two thousand nineteen I was joined onstage by my friend and New York Times bestselling author jasmine, gillary Jasmine's books include the wedding date, the proposal and the forthcoming the wedding party. Now, let's join the show. Hello, San Francisco everyone. This is very exciting. I'm very excited that your here. Jasmine, I'm thrilled to be here. I hope that before the evening is over we have counseled at least three people out of their marriages. I love marriage, by the way, and if you can make a marriage work, I wanna help in that this column has showed me that many people are in very bad marriage or very bad marriages that they need to get out of immediately. So sometimes the best way forward is out. We're not starting with a marriage question. We're starting with a question that I think is very very sweet and very very tender. And I'm gonna let you read this one already. What's an dear prudence? I'm a straight woman. My good friend Ralph I've known since I was eighteen realized he was gained out in his thirties. He became good friends with two other gay men. Greg and Bill and helped him navigate the gay community and acted as sounding boards. I've been happy for Ralph. But I know there are things he can talk about with them. But he can't with me. And then I have relative privileges. A straight person I've made friends with the two of them. And recently, we all went out for drinks together. Not at a gay bar that matters. We're all having a nice time when Greg casually referred to some other patrons as breeders when I protested the use of that word Bill jumped in and told me that straight people had so many hateful words for LGBTQ people that LGBTQ people should get to have just one pejorative term for St.. All three of them laughed. Greg continued use breeder pointedly the rest of the time. I was with them. I got really quiet finished by drink and begged off the rest of the evening. The guy seemed like they were in good spirits when I left since then Ralph asked me to other events with him sometimes with those two and sometimes without many of these events are galas before this instant eagerly hung out with Ralph and his new friends now if the events involved Gregor Bill or in a gay bar get really anxious and choose not to go. I worried that I will be labeled as Ralph's from the breeder. I have no problem with going out anywhere with my other gay friends, and I feel fine hanging out with Ralph one on one I know him being rational at my over this hurting our friendship show. I talked to Ralph. What should I say? And how do I get over this for some reason? This reminds me of my favorite movie when I was a child which was Jane Austen's, mafia, which was terrible film. Starring j I don't remember his full name. But it was like. It was just take off of the godfather and Christina Applegate plays the kind of Diane Keaton character and she's pitch perfect. She's I think the only good thing in that movie. And one point she says to the like, Michael Corleones character. I'm just always going to be that Protestant girl who never killed anyone to you. At its again. That's the only line that I could really stand by in that movie, but I feel that energy here in this letter. I feel like the some of the stuff here is going to maybe helpful for the letter writer to let go, but some of it, I genuinely it is just hard when you've been friends with someone for a long time, and they get new friends, and it's awful, and I should be so happy for you. But I'm worried are we still going to get to sit together, and you? Yeah. And you seem to have so much fun with them. And then every time they went away. I can't understand you. Yeah. And like, I wanna know my still specialty you, but then I feel self conscious about that. And I can feel that no one's laughing at my jokes. And maybe I should just leave. But nobody cares that I left like I feel that here. I I don't want to just dismiss this. As like, I don't think that they think of her as like, the breeder friend. No. But I do think that she should. Talk about it. I mean, they've been friends for twenty years. It seems like. Like have a conversation with him. Don't let this foil your friendship, like maybe don't go out with those people all the time. Maybe do but see what Ralph has to say about it. Maybe he'll say like. Oh, yeah. Those two there. They just pick on people, whatever. Or like, oh, you know, he'll assure her maybe like, whatever the conversation is at least she'll be happy that they talked about it. Yeah. And I would say even before you talked to Ralph like there's that kind of moment of like, you were invited to be a part of the like that little joke at the other patrons because they wanted you to be a part of that moment. But that can be tricky because that was a sort of like little game that they were having. And it's it's not about it's not about you. Right. Like, it's not it was not targeted at you. Those people were not harmed by it. It might be one of those things that's like hopefully, his humor Volvo pass that at some point because like also just sticking with that one joke can get a little tiresome. I think we all have that friend who's like that joke, and they just that's the only joke they ever do. Uh-huh. Which is fine. But yeah. So I I would say do some work just saying like that moment was not directed at me. Don't have to worry too much about that. They clearly enjoy spending time with me. But yeah, it's absolutely fine to say like, a miss you. This is probably a little bit strange. But sometimes I worry that I'm not as exciting as your other friends, and I would love to just get lunch together. You and me sometimes, and I've never had a friend come to me and say I really want to spend time together and felt like anything other than like, oh me. Also, he he keeps inviting you out. So he clearly still wants to be your friends. So I don't think this is like anything about your friendship, but you don't want this to spoil your friendship. Yeah. So I think that basically where I come down is do not go to your friend and say, will you tell your friend not to like say goofy things about straight people every once in a while because that I think is outside of your purview. But to share sometimes they worry that we don't have as much in common anymore or that. You don't want to spend as much time with me. And I just really want to stay close. And I love you. And I'm so glad you've been able to come out. And I also wanna kinda prioritize our closeness that you can absolutely do. And you don't have to kill anyone. You can stay a Protestant. And it's okay. Like in that moment, like us just letting off steam he has to be around straight people. Sometimes sort of dumb joke helps relieve some pressure, and it does not mean that they don't like you like clearly they like you otherwise fighting out. Yeah. Yeah. It's a good thing that they didn't notice that your feelings were hurt in that sense in another sense slowly, slightly insensitive. But yeah, I really feel for this letter writer, and I think will be receptive to this thing. So yeah. Today. We are sponsored by European wack centers acts the pink tax campaign. The pink tax is the extra amount of money. That women are charged every year for basic goods and services and adds up to about thirteen hundred fifty one dollars every year, the pink tax charges. Women more money on everything from baby bottles to canes toys, personal care products. Clothes dry dry-cleaning women are even being charged more for dry cleaning than men sometimes for bringing in the exact same shirt. Now, you know, see for yourself at acts the pink tax dot com. Okay. So this next subject is Dayton neighbor, which. You can do that. It is convenience. Dear prudence last year. My divorce was finalized. My husband had a long term affair with our neighbor's wife. They ran away together leaving the rest of us here with our kids our lives. We're exploded. My neighbor's daughter has taken it very hard. As her mother has barely contacted her. She spent more nights sleeping over with my girls than anywhere else. I've grown very close to my neighbor. He's a good, man. Solid. Sweet and kind a few days ago. He kissed me in a romantic way. And we talked a little I am elated and terrified our lives have been so chaotic recently, and we can't introduce anymore to the lives of our children. But it was nice. It was more than ice. Am I crazy for wanting this? My axe is no longer with my neighbors ex wife and has made comments before about. My neighbor, quote sniffing around me, our relationship has barely gotten to a certain level of civility. I know it will sour again. If I start dating I need to do what is best for my girls. But I care for this, man. Please help me what. What cheek to runoff with your neighbor's spouse? And then periodically say things like I think the neighbors interested in you. I mean, this woman has started off well because she got rid of her husband already. Yes. So that's that part is good. She next needs to stop carrying about what her dirtbag ex husband has to say about her future relationships. I always mix this up is this what happened with? What's her name? Oh, this is terrible. Should I it's Wayne should I twain, right? And an leeann Rimes, they both they swamped hub. If you leave with a neighbor or a close friend, you you you have to know your the remaining spouses are gonna get together. Because the first thing that they do is say like isn't this awful soul? One another. They console one another drain hang out together already lived next door. If he had wanted to push his wife into the arms of the neighbor. There's no better way to do it. This was the best way to do it. So I mean, don't worry about what you're bound to say. Gets worse. Like thinking about is this the best thing for your children right now. Like, do you do actually want? I don't think there's anything wrong with dating again after your divorce. Obviously do want to do it right now is like are is this the best time. Are you do really want to this guy or you just like happy to have someone just answer those questions for yourself before doing this? Yeah. I feel the same way. Especially in the sense of of course, there would be a part of me that would be like, it would be very exciting. For me. You were at home to watch date your neighbor and stick it to your ex husband who I just think of as a cartoon villain, but you have real human children in your home that you're concerned about and you wanna make sure that they have stability. So absolutely say to your neighbor. These are some of my concerns. It was nice that we kissed, but I want to do this very very slowly. If at all, my main priority is my kids. Don't let the kids know wet boast gonna happen figure figure that out for yourself. See a therapist. If you're not ready, you deserve one. And really think through like, what's the worst case scenario, if you date your neighbor and could you handle that? And if the answer is no doesn't mean, you you mustn't, but that would be a strong point in favor of maybe taking a trip out of town for a couple of days.

And I am conflicted. Dear prudence, I've been friends with Brian for over twenty years during which time I'd seen him fail. Multiple relationships and businesses for exactly the same reasons. I'm the person he can confide to without judgment without confusion. We've seen each other through some really big life stuff, and he trusts me completely. But he's cheating on his partner. The last decade. Liz, a dear woman who lived in one of my pertinence with him loves my children is kind and sweet among suffering of Brian's foibles is that how you say that that is how you say. Thank you his cheating on her with Marie for nearly two years twice. Brian is arranged for me to meet this woman several times he tried to put me on the phone. I've already said to both of them that I won't speak to her again for one. I don't want to be involved in her drama as she is really pretty hysterical and threatening. Secondly, I can't talk to Liz without feeling guilty. I generally tend towards minding my own business. But. It's very difficult to not feel complicit in this situation. When I see Liz weekly and lied to her face, by the way, I run Bryant's company and part owner of it. He is the of a company and just as narcissistic and sociopathic as the rest of these guys. San Francisco audience really appreciated that part. I can't just walk away from all three of them. His godfather to my children family and a work partnership, which also shows how close lose is to us to help. Do. I follow my conscience or my declared loyalty. I just want to say when people cheat they go oh out. This man is like he has made an art out of cheating. He's like, by the way, friend slash landlord slash part, owner of my tech company. My mistress is on the phone and shoot like to threaten you. Here's what I don't understand about this letter from the beginning. The letter writer says that the known Ryan for over twenty years and seen him fail. Multiple relationships and businesses for exactly the same reasons. Why? Do you now run Brian's company and are the owner? I feel like this is a this. You knew you were getting into a bad situation. This improve to you just how he was going to be. Yeah, I think obviously, I think you need to tell this. But the bigger thing for you is spending little time trying to figure out for twenty years. You've known this guy's character. And you've known that he really mistreats both his employees's and his partners for kind of the same reasons over and over again, and your response has been well he can confide to me without judgments. Judgment is called for. Judgment is is like judgment. Does not always mean that you are casting people away to live on an island and 'isolation and shame judgment. Sometimes means like using your judgment to make a judgment call. Yeah. I feel like I feel like more important for you to disconnect yourself from this entire situation. Like, maybe find a different job where you're not working for this. Yeah. You call them. That's not like an also, your friend. No. Yeah. No. No, no. It is. It is good. If you've been friends with someone for twenty years, and you think that they treat the people in their lives, very very badly. And also, frankly mistreat, you you should say something it's not a it's not a sign that a really good friend that I never say anything, it would be like if I took you out to dinner, and I said, what are you going to order, and you said, I don't really like to judge like I don't wanna make one menu item feel singled out that would. In fact, the failure to use your judgment at a time when you really ought to. So yes, this is. You're going to need to talk to Liz. You're also gonna need to make some more long-term plans about who you rent to and what companies you run and getting into and we laugh, but this is this is big this is going to be a big change for this person. And so I had vise once again seeing therapist and kind of saying, you know, one thing I'm realizing that I spent the last twenty years voiding really big issue in my life, and I let it kind of takeover my professional life my personal life. I don't wanna do that again and future relationships. Can you help me identify what I'm getting out of that? And how I can stop. I would say though, if you do plan on telling Liz, I would try to start disconnecting your professional personal relationship with Brian before that especially since you say that he's a sociopath and his mistress is threatening. Yeah. So just like protect yourself. Yeah. In this situation. Yeah. But I don't think that Bryan should be your friend. I think Brian you don't like Brian at all. I don't like Brian. Nobody likes bran. No does anyone here. Like, brian. Does anyone here work for Brian? Yeah. So I will just say because this letter writer has demonstrated so far real difficulty. Like figuring out. What's the right level to be involved in someone else's life? I fear that you're gonna try to over. Correct. And now like I'm gonna tell Liz, and I'm going to like mediate their marriage for them and just get super involved. So like this needs to be the thing you say as you begin to disconnect. And that will mean saying something to Liz that it's painful and not like volunteering to come over every day and like go through their fights with them. So figure out a time that you can just communicate the information to her tell her that you wish you had told her sooner it's been on your conscience that you're not going to try to tell her what to do or bring the subject up again. But you would wanna know in her situation, give her the facts. And then let that be that. And I hope she has other friends that she can talk to and. Whatever choice. Liz does or doesn't make because maybe shared. He kind of knows. Maybe she knows a lot let that choice be hers like you need to go figure out. Why you've been best friends with the narcissist that you think is a sociopath in a bad dude for twenty years, and we're like, absolutely let's go into business together. I won't better for you want so much better for you. And he's got father to your children. Why? Luckily, that's not a legally binding relationship. Look, I am done mother to a few friends children. I take that. Seriously. Do you do you? When you looked up Brian who again, you call nurses, sociopaths using like, this is the kind of person who I want to guide my children's faith for the rest of their life like their relationship with God that that's not. I don't feel like that's a person should be guiding. Yeah, I think you made the wrong call with your the godfather of your children. I don't think you need to work like when you have blown up his spot with his wife and like broken your professional ties. I think he will at that point not say like, but what about the next christening? I was going to just let that go like that will fall by the wayside. But yes, again, you got to these will be questions you'll be asking not just a week from now but a month from now on a year from now in therapy because it's going to take a while to. Untangle some of this stuff, but you sound ready to stop which I'm very glad to hear. Because this sounds unpleasant. So let's leave that one behind. Let's move on. This next one is tricky. But as tricky because nobody's anybody's. Godfather, this subject is joblessness turning into hopelessness. Dear prudence, oh, I just know everyone's going to this. I sense you're going to have a hard time with this one. I went to grad school to increase my earning potential and open up more career opportunities. So sorry. However, I've had a brutal time getting a job. I've been applying for two months and have had several interviews all of which have ended in rejection. I think him up to thirty two you will get more. Sorry. I don't need good color commentary on this with every interview get excited only to put an hour's worth of work and have nothing to show for it. It's pretty awful at one hundred and fifty thousand dollars of student loans needing to be paid back in six months. And every statistic I read about the long term effects of a low starting salary means I can't accept the of working as a barista or something until I find a new job in my field. My joblessness has turned to hopelessness can't concentrate in school as I look around at everyone who already has because she jobs lined up. I'm having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. I've withdrawn from friends and family who asked me about it. Because I hate admitting that I'm a failure already in therapy for something unrelated, and my therapist doesn't really have good advice because she's never been in this situation. I feel lost. What should I do? My heart goes out to this person. You also went to grad school. How are you feeling about that right now, I'm not working not feels anymore? But I have had similar situations. I really feel for this person. I will say my is two things. I put out put out of your mind, the whole idea that you can't take a different job that you can't take a lower starting salary. Like, you the most important thing for you. Right now is to feel better about yourself. And even if even if this job is not in your field. It is something and we'll like get you moving and feeling like, you're okay. And you can succeed. And also, you can just leave it off your resume like I feel like people don't really know this that you don't have to put your barista job on your resume. No one will know this in your future salary negotiations that you were briefed sometime. That's okay. Also, go to your doctor like you seem depressed. I think that you could your therapist isn't working for this, which some therapists are good about this some aren't. Like. Talk to your doctor about the sleeplessness in the depression. This is a thing you can work on. It'll get better. I promise I'm so sorry. I would say to specifically say to your therapist. I'm having a hard time talking about this with you because you haven't been in this situation, and I want like more specific advice. I think sometimes when we get therapists. We think either I will agree with this person all the time, and they will give me really good advice, or I will quietly be disappointed in the things that they say, and then stop going back, and that is a recipe to feel really frustrated with their be, and I think sometimes it can feel hard the idea of pushing back against someone in the room like the your normally used to getting support from can feel really overwhelming, but I'm a big advocate of disagreeing with your therapist. Sometimes and seeing what happens because usually it's fine. Your therapist will vary. Calmly say something and you'll both figure out what to do next. So I would say that thing to your therapists say like, I'm really stressed out. About my career part of me feels like because you have not graduated with a ton of student debt. You can't understand what I'm going through. And I promise like, you're not going to hurt your therapists feelings. She's not going to be like, oh, my gosh, therapists, reading material there have been some excellent articles recently about like student dead and the hopelessness that people feel about that. Yeah. I think your therapists should like get used to this. Because I think this is a thing that people will be talking a lot of us hopeless, like your therapist, should definitely. But also I mean, but also to certain extent like you said, you're going to therapy about something unrelated. So maybe the fair, maybe you're going there for something that your therapist is really good at and then they are just not good at this one thing. That's okay. You can talk, you know. Go to your doctor top try to get your therapist to work on this find a different therapist that is okay too. Yeah. Yeah. And Mace mainly just communicate to your therapist. I don't expect you to help me get a job. I just wanna make sure that we're able to talk about this. In addition to the other stuff that I'm seeing you because this is a big thing that's like affecting my ability to function, and so as my therapist, I want you to know that I also think you know, like sometimes when you get into this pit of depression about something like this. It is very helpful to get to talk to your doctor to get medication to help you out of that. Because because you have this hopelessness you can't sleep like you'd think that nothing will ever be okay again. And sometimes you just need something else to hope you feel like you could maybe do something. And that's okay. I feel like people think you're meeting to failure. If you talk to your doctor about something like that. And that's not and I hope that I like, I I hope that things get better for you. And also you look around at your classmates and things that everything is perfect for them. And I promise that it's not even if they do have jobs, or maybe some of them don't have jobs, and they just won't admit it. I think there are a lot of people in situations like yours, and they just you just aren't talking people are talking about because they feel like failures. Yeah. I'll just a couple quick things to that one of which is. I don't got. I hope you don't have to pay the whole hundred and fifty thousand six months, if you do you gotta talk to somebody making clear, that's just not going to happen. Sometimes it can kind of help star position of just like that won't happen. So what do we do like don't don't overwhelm yourself thinking like my life will be ruined? Like talk to everybody and anybody who's even remotely connected with student loans on campus and try to find out what your other options are in terms of like income based repayment or even defaulting or getting other forms of assistance like ask for that kind of help and ask for it loudly. And again, I understand that you might not wanna like broadcast your most vulnerable panicked feelings on other people of the people. You talked to have heard this before. Yeah. Even job. Yeah. And like if there are students who have gotten great jobs like ask them, do you know, if that firm is also hiring because I'm actually having a harder time finding a position than I thought. I would ask them for help. Getting that interview. I don't wanna. To come down like real hard on you like you shouldn't have gone to grad school because what's done is done. You can't unring that bell. But when it comes to thinking about what happens next, it may be a hope it's not. But it may be that grad school is something that never affects the kinds of jobs that you have it may be that you just spent a lot of money on it. And you have to figure out a new thing afterwards. And if that happens, mainly what I don't want for you is to feel like I can't take this job. I have to make up for this like I have to earn my money back. So unless I get a job in my field. I won't take a job at all. And then five years from now, you still don't have a job, and you feel like I wish I could go back in time and get that barista job and like just be working at a coffee shop. So again, I'm not saying work at a coffee shop or don't. And I'm not saying assume just imagine already the grad school was a total waste of your time. And you can't ever make up for it. But I would just say don't don't. Feel like I have to justify the money already spent here because that is a recipe for panic and just like not letting yourself try something different. Yeah. And also talked to cursor verses at your school. I think graduate schools. Like all of their graduates to get jobs because it makes them look bad. Like, they get ranked based on that. So go talk to people and say like, I'm not finding a job help me. What can I do? What else is there? You know, keep talking to people until someone is hopeful because it is in their best interest to help you. And I think once you start feeling like keep looking keep interviewing and I keep not getting it. Something must be wrong with me. Therefore, I I am failure. And I can't talk to anyone about it. And I think you need to talk to as many people as possible about this, even though it makes you feel terrible. Because it's only other like other people will be able to help you in a way that you you can't get your, you know, you can't get your own job. Like, that's not saying anything bad about you. None of us can get our own jobs. We all need other people to help us so ask as many people for help as you can even though it makes you feel like the first time it feels miserable. But keep doing it. And then it'll feel more normal to you and good luck. And right back. Let us know how you're doing. I want to hear from you again. And I'm so glad I don't have to read this next letter. All righty bridal party blues. Dear prudence, I'm getting married. And if you short months, and I'm excited to have my two best friends to Fanie and Philip standing by my side, as I marry the most amazing man, unfortunately, Tiffany and fill up currently getting very ugly divorce fill-up cheated on Tiffany with his co worker Dalia last year. Philip is no longer seeing Dalia, and is dating another co worker Kerry, but he into Fanie aren't legally divorced yet. Tiffany was otherwise handling things gracefully is feeling incredibly sad about Kerry. I wonder why and I want to make Tiffany feel comfortable can during the wedding. I know it's customary to give all of your bridal. Hurry members of plus one. But do I have to give one to Philip? I don't wanna drama at my wedding, and I wanna protect Tiffany's emotions will likely already trying for her. But I don't want to be a jerk to Philip who has already feeling strange for our friend group. We love him. But we are all varying levels of angry with him over this situation on top of all of this. I don't know. Carrie and Philip himself told me he finds Kerry boring. Why he seriously dating someone? He finds boring. It's beyond me. Do I knew to extend a plus one to fill up. And if so how do I be supporter friend, Tiffany? I feel like that wrong question got asked here. Yeah. This is like. He's out of your wedding. Party when you cheat on one of my bridesmaids. You don't get to stand up there with my bridesmaid as she like watches me, take Val. Sorry. I mean, I feel like yes, I understand that Philip is feelings are because he's a strange from your friend group. Why is a fringe because he on one of your friend again, if you wanna be a nice friend don't disinvite him to the wedding. Let him come to the wedding. Why? The conversation. You have with Philip is just obviously you are no longer in the wedding party. And if you says something like why you say you cheated on another member of the wedding party. Like when you see that sentence out loud. And you realize how reasonable you sound? You don't have to have an argument. You don't have to convince him. And again, you don't have to say like therefore, you're not invited. Or I wanna put you under a special. Shame canopy where everyone will come by throw. Tin cans at you later, again, I wanna make it really clear. I am not suggesting that you have to like get rid of Philip from your life entirely. Again, like when somebody is your friend, and you love them, and they do something that is hurtful, if you say something like, you did something hurtful, and I think it's okay that you experienced some consequences for the hurt caused. That's good friendship. And you're not you're again, you're not doing this to punish Philip. You're doing this because he cheated on your friend and asking her friend who was there with you. Yeah. And like wedding asking to Tiffany to stand up in front of everybody, you both know with her like the ink is not yet dry on their divorce papers the man who cheated on her and say like that's cool with you. Right. If like that's a cruel thing to do to her like that's an affront to her dignity that would be asking her to like put up with just like public humiliation. And you shouldn't do it to her. You shouldn't even be putting her in a situation where she feels like pressure to be cool about it. So you tell Philip my friend. I love you. I'm very excited to have you at the wedding of co. You understand you are no longer in the wedding party. Which like? I don't know. He doesn't sound like the kind of guy who's also a standup groomsman. He doesn't sound like the kind of do you know what I mean? Like here cheats is why thing new girlfriend warring, he's not going to be like. Oh, no. But I'd like craft at a really thoughtful poem that I wanted to read like Philip is thinking about himself. So he's not in the wedding party. Yeah. Also while you're at it don't give him a plus one freight. To the wedding and all too. Yeah. Don't don't make don't make Tiffany stand up there with him. That's very very reasonable. If he wants to have like an ongoing conversation with you about that. If you guys want to hash out, if you wanna have some difficult conversations where you say things like Phil, I love you. But I'm really ashamed of the way you've behaved in the last year. I don't know why you're telling me that you find your new girlfriend boring. I think that's cruel. Inappropriate to say to me. I question your judgment. And I want you to do better say those things to fill. I will say those things to fill of you don't want. You just have him. Listen to play him this podcast like encourage him to listen to the sounds of shock and laughter. That comes from a group of reasonable people. Phil should be uncomfortable right now. Again, I'm not don't throw the tin cans don't say feel you can never be my friend again, but don't put Tiffany. And that's that's the way to be supportive of her, and he should be experienced like he shouldn't just be experiencing vague discomfort. When like no one says to him like, I think what you did was unkind and cruel, but they're all just sort of like, I'm just going to talk to a little bit less until I feel less bad. Like, somebody should be saying to Phil. What are you doing cheating people? Just here all of her friends are still friends with the guy who cheated like, give her a little bit more support still friends, but like a little distant which is just like that's the worst response. Right. Like, I either just go full hog and be a jerk and be like, whatever I love Phil Phil can't do anything wrong or cut felt like this in the middle stuff isn't pleasing anybody. But yeah, if you know God forbid. Somebody cheat on me done, and you invite us both to be in your wedding party. I'm not going to be like understandable. But could they just not come with date? Like, I'm gonna be like, I invite you to make a choice, please. Let me know when you have made it. Normally when I get wedding questions, I counsel people to care less and do a little less and not worry so much. This is a wedding escalation that I am courage. Make this wedding more dramatic. Read the next letter. My brother-in-law is evil twin dear prudence, my husband, and I have been together for a decade in that time his twin brother has gone from pretty liberal to identifying as an old, right? White supremacist and says in postings online and support of white supremacy anti semitism, racism, sexism, basically ticking, all the phobia boxes with his beliefs. My husband on the other hand is one of the nicest people I've ever met and has polar opposite believes from his twin currently my brother-in-law's working out of the country. So for the most part I've been able to avoid him since his viewpoints took a turn for the worse. However, it is likely he'll be moving home at some point this year. I want nothing to do with him. However, my husband has a relationship with him. Although they stick to superficial topics like sports and movies because my husband made it clear he doesn't wanna hear his brother's appoint views with him moving back in the nearest future. I know this is going to keep coming up as a source of contention between us, I don't even want my brother-in-law in our house. Obviously, it's my husband's house to and a loss of how to deal with the situation. Any advice would love to stop getting this question. I don't mean to say like the letter writer is a big jerk. I mean, I get this question so much, and I wish I didn't get it. I mean, yes, it's your husband's house, but it's your house. So I feel like you both can make rules about who comes into your house and doesn't. So I think pretty firm rule. You can make is he does not come into our shared home where I live. Yeah. Yeah. And there I don't think, you know, you need to say you have to tell your brother to like go jump in a lake, but. While I think family relationships can be complicated. I don't always just say like cut everybody off whenever they say something that's like painful, if you know, your sibling is a white supremacist and you choose to talk about sports, you are committing a grave sin. The only way I know how to describe that like you are choosing to ignore evil to talk about sports, and that's bad. And you shouldn't. So again without saying your husband. Here's what you have to do. I think you can say this you, and I both know because you're brother-in-law has said publicly that he is a white supremacist. I think that's awful. I can't pretend not to know that I have no interest in making small talk with him. Knowing what I do. I cannot pretend not to know it. So if we are ever with him, I will talk about it or you can just say I choose to never be with him that is fine. And I mean that might call him section between your you and your husband. But that's good that some things should cost fiction. This kind of thing that is make your husband think about is really again, like family relationships are important. I understand why someone would feel like that. This is my twin brother, but also he's a white supremacist. Yeah. Like there's a difference between like we have like big disagreements about like how to conduct trade agreements, and like we have to talk about movies. But like the only movies he wants to talk about his birth of a nation. Like, it's. Yes. So either to say I cannot be around him. That would be totally appropriate thing for you to say or to give your husband fair warning of like if I am in the same room with him. I'm going to say, you're white supremacist. And I don't think that's good. Do you husband want to be in that room? Or would you like to make alternate range moments? But don't you know, if you agree never to really talk about it with your husband and your husband agrees to never really talk about it with his brother that is how you create a family that like bills itself around the white supremacist and makes it easier for him to live his life. And I think a goodwill of them is to make it more difficult for white supremacists to openly spouse their beliefs. Yeah. So. The whole like what we understand you feeling bad about this. Because you feel like you're coming between your husband and his brother, but his brothers the one who did that. So right. Like, he's the one who was like I'm just going to say this stuff on social media now like that was his choice. And so I do understand that like other situations whether or not someone lives in a house as relevant, but like the fact that your husband owns property, you know, like does not enter into this like like, oh, no. You don't have property. You don't get out of an opinion on white supremacy. Like, that's an ugly idea and get that. That's not what you're trying to say here. But that's what you said is like because it's my husband's house. Maybe he has a right to excuse white supremacist. No, no. We've had a whole conversation about this property doesn't enter into the question Hugh of a stake in resisting white supremacy. Even if the only thing that you own is like your hands. This is definitely bring it up. Now, bring it up before the brother-in-law moves home. Make it really really clear what you are and aren't willing to do and don't make your husband's own. This will make your husband feel uncomfortable. This may make his brother feel uncomfortable. That's fine. That's good. People should feel uncomfortable about being a white supremacist. Yeah. Like if your husband, here's that. And he's like Ono, what am I going to do? You don't have to figure that out for him. We'd be like. Yeah. You need to figure out what you're going to do about your brother who's a white supremacist because you have decided not to do anything previously. So like if you kinda comes back with the sort of passive like, oh, no, no. I have a problem like again lovingly like encouragingly with the kindness of spouse who wants their partner to do the right thing to be an actively good person. Not just passively quiet person say you do have a problem. I would like to hear what some of your thoughts are like you created this problem. And I wanna know that the person I married. Is going to do something about this. So good thing. You got some time to fight this one out because it's a good thing to fight about and keep us posted. And don't have this guy over definitely don't have this guy over. Okay, we're ending on a nicer note because this one's just about route family members, which is there at least at least they're not. I mean, no mites premises. Yeah. You can work with rude. Yeah. Rude. There's a lot of room to maneuver. So the subject is rude. Parents dilemma, dear prudence, I'm a grad student. I'm wearing now about how you're doing there because I hope you're okay in that. I hope you're okay. I'm a grad student who's gone through periods of estrangement from my parents since I was a teenager. I just spent some time at home with my parents and ended with none of us speaking after they repeatedly treated me with derision hostility, bringing me to tears, although I go out of my way to do things for them to be cordial. I feel like this treatment has become normalized in. There is now that I'm back at my home. They've both reached out in a moderately affectionate way, not referencing any of the conflict. I haven't responded yet. I know that I should stop spending time in their home as it never goes. Well, but I don't know if I should bring up my anger with their unacceptable behavior. Take their lead and maintain a polite correspondence or cut them out of my life entirely the getting older, and they made a lot of sacrifices for my sister. And I getting sue college. So it's not like, I don't know them anything. Do you have any thoughts? I feel like your first step should be to go to therapy. Just everybody. Everybody seems like a very difficult family relationship. And you seem to have a lot of guiltiness. Like, I don't think you your parents anything just because they do through college. I don't like, especially if you're you're going to their house, and they're being actively cruelty you so I think you need to work through those feelings and those are like those normal hard feelings to have. So I I think there's a lot of space between. Continuing to do what you have been doing and cutting them out of your life and early, and I think talking to someone about this will be a really good way to help you navigate that. Yeah. I would agree with that. I don't in this one. I don't have a really strong sense of you need to either to the following things. Try to make things work or you. Absolutely. Oh, it to yourself to never speak to them again. And a lot of different people with different relationships to really difficult parents some of them have gone through periods where they don't talk to them at all. Sometimes they try a lot. Sometimes the trying is really painful, sometimes the painful trying is worth it to them. So I I would say mostly if you're kind of worried that like the right thing to do here is really stand up for yourself and tell your parents off. And if you don't do it you're somehow giving in or being week, like if there's just a party, that's like, even though my parents are really really difficult. I love them, and it would pain me to not be in touch with them. Please don't feel like that's weak or wrong. So I would say before you do anything actually really just spend a little time talking with somebody that, you know, loves you and will listen on touch, mentally or even just with a journal kind of writing down like given certain things that you know, you can't change. What would you like in terms of your relationship with your parents? And if the idea of. Even just kind of having difficult interaction with them. Once a month would be like, but I still wanna know how they're doing. I still want to tell them what's going on with me. I still wanna see their faces. I still want to hear their voices. If that's an important value for you. That's good to know. And you you get to prioritize that it doesn't make you weak. It doesn't make you like avoidance necessarily again. Like, there's always important lines. When it comes to stuff like they were like being violent towards you. I would say that you had an obligation to your own safety to get out. Or if they were. Crossing the line in terms of like, open, racism or other forms of bigotry that you felt like a duty to resist but just in that category of like, what do I want? How difficult how much time and energy can I put towards this? So if you decide you know, what for right now, I'm going to focus on grad school and finding therapist, and I'm gonna have some conversations with my parents that run along this level of my life. We're going to talk about what they've been cooking. What movies they've seen? And I'm going to get off the phone in five minutes and maybe in a couple of years. I will want to say like if you're not ready to have the hard conversations yet. It's okay. Everybody else to have those immediately. You can figure out what you want to say. I before starting that conversation yet. And especially because I think it sounds like this letter writer is really for the first time trying to consider like beyond just not talking. What are my other options? So don't feel like you have to decide really create strategy right away. But yeah, if it feels really important to you to take a little more time, you might even say to your parents. Hey, my last visit home was really painful, you guys hurt me. And I want to be able to talk about it. But I'm not quite there yet. So I need a little time and space. And then take that time and space you could do that. If you feel like I think that they would laugh at me, and I'm not ready for that. You don't have to. But you can feel like I'm doing a lot of waffling. I mostly just I feel like this letter writer already feels really like bound up really like constrained. And I want them to know that they've got a lot of options, and you don't have to make that choice immediately. I feel like you think that like you think that you need to stop spending time in your home or that you should stop speaking to them completely. You know, I think it's okay to sit with your feelings for awhile and feel them and then figure out what you're gonna do without making any decision. Just yet. And just know this is hard for you. You don't want things to keep going along as you've been doing? So I think knowing that is your first step, and then figure out what you like how you want the relationship to be what traces you can make to make things better for yourself. And I think it's hard to you. You can't know that right now you have to think about it for a while. It's okay. And just to reiterate if they were bringing you to tears, and then once you went away and got some space they acted like that didn't happen. That's that's not you know. You didn't make that up. It's not normal to treat other people that way, it's okay to still be hurt by that. And so I'm really glad that you've kind of decided, okay? One thing I can do is not be in their house anymore. That's really good. But if you also just needed to say like a pre sheet the faction, but if you really wanna demonstrate that you care about me. I need to say out loud that the last time. I saw you you were really cruel and you mocked me. And you made me cry. And I don't understand why you're pretending that didn't happen. And that's not like slinging to argue with them about like, if they try to say like we thought it was fun or that's not how I say. Like, that's not how I saw it. You can just say like I'm not trying to argue with you about how you saw it. I'm telling you what happened. I know. What happened? I remembered what happened that was real. If you ever want to talk about that with me and vailable for that. But if what you want to do is pretend it happen or suggests that I made it up am not available for that conversation. And that's not the same thing as cutting them out of your life. That's saying I will engage with reality. If you want to engage with reality. And if you wanna continue this thing where you treat me one way in person. And then once I get a little space and independence, and you start to worry that I'm like getting away from you you try to pretend it didn't happen. That's just not a game. I'm gonna engage with. But it wish you a lotta luck. It's really really hard and again place to be in. I'll just say if you decide that you are not ready to cut ties with your parents, even though they treat you really cruelly. That is okay. You do not have to do it because of some like allegiance to like doing the right thing. You can just do what feels doable right now. And that's our last letter. And I'm sad that we ended on the heavy note. But I'm also glad that we've hopefully talked at least one person in the audience out of having an affair tonight. Like if anyone came here. I was on the fence. I hope we don't even if you need to get divorced. Just go home and tell your house just say, I'm happy and thinking about cheating. Don't that's just so much quicker than you can just go date people with on purpose? And it's just it's just easier to take screen shots screen shots clutter up your desktop. They clutter up your photo cloud. No good. You're all wonderful jasmine year. Wonderful. I think we have some time to take questions from the crowd. Someone ask a lighthearted someone else? Someone else again like fun question. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, wonderful. Thank you so much of so glad you're here. This is actually light hearted question. One of the highlights of my week in the fall was quickly watching discovery, and then jumping online to see what you had written about tilles hair. And so I've been really sad lately that I don't know your thoughts on discovery in general and also tilles hair. Oh, well, thank you. That was very hard. The question was why I'm not recapping the next season of the new Star Trek, which I did last year. And the reason is that I have been writing my book, which is due tomorrow. It's very nice of you, all to applause, not done. It will be done tomorrow. But yeah, I they asked me if I wanted to to recap the show again, and I had to finish my book. Instead. So. That's that someone else has a question for these. So I am I am married to a trans person one of the first twenty or so people be registered non binary under the California law that allows for that them, and I have struggled with telling stories about our life together before they were trans with this sort of issue of dead naming and using the wrong pronouns because this is who they were at the time. And I don't have a really specific question about that. But I feel like you might be qualified to comment on this, and what is appropriate. What's insensitive? Absolutely. So I'll say to the first thing I don't wish those people on the open relationship community because it seems to me. That people who are really invested in having open relationships, actually, love, logistics, and processing and honesty, and I don't want to deliver to them pack of people who are like I love sneaking around hiding of denying things I've done and like so they need to get their house in order their first before they can figure out what their needs and desires are in terms of relationship structure, but I hear you. So I mean, the question generally like, especially if you're in a really close relationship with somebody who transitions in the course of your relationship. How do you think about how do you talk about various times during your life together? Of course, you know, my first thought there is speak to your partner and ask those questions because that particular person will always have the best information about that. And it may sometimes change. I don't wanna say like, here's a hard and fast. I will say generally speaking, especially the longer somebody has gone through their transition, usually we don't think of like a time in our life, necessarily before we were trans even if we don't think of ourselves as somebody who always knew there's often a sense of continuity to it that can be sort of hard to put into words. So while somebody else might have experienced a significant shift for us. It can feel a little bit more like locking something into place and less of a big break again that can really vary. Sometimes people do experience in this way. So with that big big, caveat, I would say air on the side of asking your partner. I and saying we'll be your preference. If you're not sure what your preference is. You know, I will air on the side of like not telling that particular anecdote. But you know. I guess I would just say be prepared for it to change because for me sometimes that has changed. And I think often there is kind of a push for all of us to feel like we wanna make it as easy as possible for other people because we sometimes feel even around really open accepting right on people a little bit of a sense of guilt. Like, we're taking something away. Like, I know I experienced that. I didn't want to I knew intellectually that that's not something that I was doing. And yet there was also a part of me that often felt like I'm taking something away from the people who love me, and the best thing I can do is transition as quietly as possible and ask as little of the people around me as possible. So they don't mind so much so. You know, take people at their word, obviously. But recognize that there will probably be an impulse within the transportation. You love to say, it's fine. It's totally fine. Totally get it totally fine. I love it. No worries. And maybe that's true. And if so that's great. But if sometimes they say, you know, I want you to pause on those stories or I'm not so sure how I feel about that particular picture that's up in the hallway or I would like you to refer to me in the past as my name, especially because usually like if if somebody transitions in your life, usually people know, you know, like all the people in my life. No that I'm trans. So if I talk about my childhood, and I refer to myself as Danny people people who know me know that people weren't calling me Danny at the time. Like, we're all aware that I was raised not under the name, Danny? So it doesn't feel like I have to acknowledge that with the people who. Oh me. Well, so I would say those are just some guiding principles. I would not try to offer up a hard and fast rule other than just ask the person that you're thinking of talking about guided by them, and if they say, I don't know air on the side of waiting till you can learn more. But the I'm glad you're asking that question that's thoughtful in loving. And I'm really really glad that you're thinking about that. And that your goal is to find ways to talk about your own experience that both honors what you've been through. And also something that's deeply deeply felt in your relationship. Also, I love your necklace. I just meant to say that earlier gave it to me for Christmas, the best taste, all right? Who's next? So I don't know. If you remember I asked a question when you lasted a live show in San Francisco, all my goodness. Did it did it work out? Yes, that's wanted to tell you. So. Don. So my question was that. My brother had been had asked me to be my best man at my wedding light twelve times, and I was really tempted to do the same thing. And then last week he told me that he proposed to his girlfriend and she said, yes. And I resisted the urge to even mention it. And I wanted to say thank you for your excellent advice. To you that there's a route of applies. Congratulations to your brother, by the way. Congratulations to you. My sister is in the audience tonight. And sometimes it's really hard when she's done a lot of terrible things to me. No kidding. She's the best sister in the world. My sister, Laura is here, and she is wonderful and the best and I love her and she's never done anything wrong. I'm so glad you're here. Okay. Next question. So first of all, I love the fact that your shoes or coordinated. Accident. He'll divide. So I tend to be really over analytical and try to rationalize everything I do like oh my being objective. I'm being logical rational. But sometimes it's too much or too little and it's hard to kind of keep grounded. So what feedback or comments would you have about that? In terms of like, am I being objective their rational like how do I be like hard on myself when I need to be? But also not too hard to ruffle myself. I wish my brother was here. That is my brother like, I feel like he would have such great advice for you like he would be like done with some thirty seconds. You could all just go home. My sister. Not think that. I've already said she's always, right. Really put myself in a problem. Yeah. But just kind of general question of like, how do I know whether I'm like like applying appropriate rigor to my own line of thinking versus being way too hard on myself. And that's a big, you know, that's really hard like I felt in the ultimate much anything. Yeah. And I think just as you were saying that last question, I think one key here is having a number of friends or people in your life, who's judgment, you value who can give you some feedback. And again that doesn't mean like texting every friend. You have every time you have to make a decision and say like, do you think I'm totally bonkers for trying this or do you think I'm thinking through this correctly? But can really be helpful. If you say to someone like, I worry, I'm being either too critical here or too permissive. Do you have a sense of where you would fall if you were in my position? And I think the people who know you, well, we'll be able to who know you situations. We'll be able to answer that question for you like certainly have friends of mine who would say like, no. No, you keeping yourself about this because XYZ or like just this week ice been to myself about something and a friend of mine who is here somewhere. I believe was like jasmine like this is okay. This is a hard thing that you're going through like that's fine. And so I think like reaching out to people because I think you never have the best perspective on yourself. And certainly like everyone else, you know, is going to have a different kind of prism on you. But it's helpful to hear the different ones. And see do they agree? Like am. I doing too much of this might not doing enough of this listening to people in your life, especially if you were at appointing her life where you have people around you who opinion whose opinions value sometimes we'll have to get there. But but if like listen to those people and try to like be kinder on yourself about that. I would also like to put a plug in for writing stuff down. Sometimes because I think we all were like all of our fear is like I will get so mixed up when it comes to rigor and compassion that like I'm going to be like Philip cheating on Tiffany. And being like itself care for no one to yell it. That's the fear. Is that I'll be like. Yeah. Cheated on my wife, but self care. Like, that's the fear. And so I think sometimes like writing down, you know, what do I think is the highest good in this situation? What's the value here that I want to prioritize what's the best case scenario? What would I do with that? What is the worst thing that could happen? How would I feel about that? Is there any part of me that I think feel threatened here or that I want to safeguard it doesn't have to be like pages and pages, it can just be like a Fraser too. But it can really help clarify like what am I hoping to get out of this situation? What's the thing that I need from this situation of this person, this tiff you'll heard is to feel respected is to like get a specific thing from them. And if I don't get what I want. What would I do? And how would I want to respond like how would I how would I lose gracefully in this scenario? And then also you can flip back and think like, oh, I did this exact same thing three months ago. I have this problem a lot like, maybe. Okay. This is how I fixed her like, I did not do that. Well, let's try something different. I think that is very helpful. Yeah. And again, like a also this to like, I don't like writing things down. And I like when I first started to think about transition like to oh, my got two years ago. I'm an elder now. Not an elder not an elder that is a joke. But I really hate writing stuff out by hand. And I also knew I needed to keep some sort of record. Because I knew if I didn't I would just keep convincing myself that like this just started yesterday, and I needed to prove to myself that I was thinking about this a lot. So I I opened a Google doc, and I just like would type in the date, and I would write a couple of sentences of what I was thinking about it. And after like, six months, I was like, I guess I have been thinking about my gender for a long time or else like evil demon has crept into my laptop. And it's like I had evidence that there was a pattern. And so that can be really hopeful good luck. Thanks for listening to dear prudence. Our producers, Phil circus.

"Good evening thank you for joining us for only the third time in in. US history a verdict impeachment trial of a sitting president the vote to acquit fell strictly along party lines except for the only senator to ever vote to remove a president kind of his own party. Here's ABC's David Wright. Today in the Senate Chamber and Historic Moment United States Senate was made for moments like the final vote on Donald. Trump's impeachment We will look back on this vote and say this was a day. The paper began to break. This president is such a menace. You must ignore indeed sacrifice the truth to maintain his favor world's greatest deliberative body. Not Guilty. Not Guilty not guilty. Took just over half an hour to clear president. Trump's scarborough both charges final tally article one. That president trump abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political rival. Joe Biden fifty teach you to forty-eight Donald John Trump president of the United States is not guilty as charged in the first article of impeachment. That vote almost just a long straight party lines with one exception. My faith is at the heart of WHO I am. Mitt Romney of Utah was the lone Republican to defy the five Mitch. McConnell no senator in history has ever voted to convict to President of his own party corrupting and election to keep flint. Self in office is perhaps the most abusive and destructive violation of one's oath of office that I can imagine he sounded like like a voice from the past the past of the Republican Party. He was their standard-bearer eight years ago. It's not that party anymore. As Romney told Fox News Chris Wallace that experience is what gave him courage today. The worst thing that ever happened to me politically it was loosened the presidency In Two thousand twelve I've got I've got broad enough shoulders to be able to to whether personal changes in my in my career political or otherwise. But what I don't have is the capacity to ignore my conscience nations in article to the charge that president trump obstructed congress by refusing to cooperate in any way with the impeachment inquiry not guilty. It's over America. America media after the vote trump triumphant re tweeted this meam suggesting he'll be president in in perpetuity that tweet was classic trump and really. It shows his state of mind that that after being impeached and now acquitted he's just dancing on the on. The heads of those who tried to get trump's lawyer called it a victory for the president the Office of the President and the Constitution. We're very pleased with the result. We're glad this is behind us. We're glad this is behind the country but this wasn't quite the outcome. The White House had hoped for because of Senator Romney. The vote to convict was bipartisan. But the votes to acquit only came from Republicans. I fear that moral courage country before party is a rare commodity these days Red State Democrats like Doug Jones Alabama face significant pressure to vote with Republicans in order to give the president bragging rights in the end none of them broke ranks. Presence Actions Demonstrate a belief that he is above the the law that Congress has no power whatsoever in questioning or examining is actions. And that all who do so do so at their peril history of course will the judge the bigger impact in the bigger meaning of what we saw here today. But in the immediate aftermath of this what does it look like here as the two parties actually try potentially into get anything. Done impeachment has turned party lines to battle cemented. The bond between trump and the Republicans in Congress. They've cast their lots together. Thank you Mitch. The bad blood between trump and the Democrats especially house speaker. Nancy Pelosi is on full display last night at the state of the Union. He refused to shake her hand. She tore up his speech as soon as he was finished. I was shocked shocked by that. I did not see it as as a demonstration of strong willed speaker of the house in control of herself. She prides herself on not sinking into his level and she did with impeachment over the Focus for Democrats is now totally geared to removing trump. The old fashioned at the ballot box trump is the most dangerous president in the modern history of our country. Can the person I'm voting for beat Donald Trump. I believe I will. We beat Donald Trump. Not by fighting other Democrats we beat Donald Trump by pulling this party together today. The candidates were out enforce in New Hampshire. Where next Tuesday's first in the nation? Primary is more important than it has been cleared. ABC's Maryalice parks is just bathroom. Iowa about to head off to New Hampshire. This week is jammed packed with political events between the state of the Union. The debacle that happened in Iowa. ABC has a debate. Coming Up New Hampshire all of that taking place around this historic impeachment vote. It's just too much it's head-spinning. We talked to a lot of voters who say they just want to tune it. All out after the Iowa caucuses failed to deliver results in a timely fashion. New Hampshire is almost a do over the field in New Hampshire still wide open. Chess game off. I certainly has but I'm not sure in spite this really out my husband really likes Palmer short very much. But she's not super well but I think she's a really good Campbell to twelve. I want to hear the candidates by pursuing impeachment. Party leaders may have kicked a Hornet's nest. It could come back to sting them. This is not over yet. But it's Mitt Romney said today it now is up to a higher court up to the American people and what they think come November even so many democratic mechanic voters. Don't fault the impeachment effort. It was not a waste of time because their job. It's never a waste of time to do your job. There are pundits out there that indicate that it could hurt the Democratic Party but nonetheless. I think it was the right thing to do that. I think history will prove that have been through an election and it was so trying nine strong. God that'd be so glad for now it is over over ending today not with a bang but a whimper a move that the Senate sitting as the court of impeachment only articles against Donald John Adjourn Johnny Dot without objection. The motion is agreed to the Senate sitting as a court of impeachment stands adjourn sine die. The question now this help or hurt. Democrats chancers to remove trump in November.

Diane Keaton is navigating what may be the most intimate project author revealing her tumultuous relationship with younger brother. How his struggle with his inner demons wins has now brought the pair closer than ever before? Here's my nightline co anchor Juju Chang to understand the significance awesome Diane Keaton's body of work. Just check out her. IMDB page from modern ROM coms like followed the bride. You're absolutely wrong and something's gotta give. We're just goofy when it comes to love all the way back to her Oscar winning in Annie Hall. Oh Well Lottie da lot it up for for fifty years. She's been laid on her way into our hearts commanding. The screen with her special mix of quirkiness and charisma I deemed Hollywood royalty by Hollywood royalty honoring her with the American Film. Institute's Lifetime achievement award in two thousand seventeen can't imagine Jay seventies eighties nineties to thousands without you. Love you Diane. So does everybody but Diane comfortable. I'm familiar with all that adoration every generation responds to you in some way. How how does that feel as you're walking down the street it makes me feel like Ah? You're crazy that's not. The way can be Weirdo. You know did I mention. She's hilarious her humor and fashion statements subtracting one point three million followers on instagram but her latest project speaks straight from the heart brother and sister a deeply personal personal memoir about her relationship with her troubled baby brother Randy. What did you write? This memoir became the family documentarian. I think that everybody has an then. You know a family situation almost a whole families in some way and Randy was such an interesting character because I think his mind was just unique and unusual Diane poured through her family's treasure trove of personal diaries and mementos now opening up for the first time about the depths of her brother's mental mental illness and lifelong addiction. You say that randy was the single male relationship that was the most intimate in your life. Yeah that's for sure. What did you mean to still is because because I you know look I'm a person who's never married and I think that Randy had the most significant and he's it's being played out now more than ever ever now that he's you know he's kind of infirm in a way that he can't really express himself too much anymore and I look back on Randy Handy I just think wow I wish I could have been a better sister? That's really do. I wish I could have been a better sister. Their lives started out in the same bunk beds southern California in the fifties and dilip suburban upbringing. What were the happiest moments of your childhood? All we had a lot of happy times we we went to the the beach. We were always at the beach camping at the beach and that was a very great time in our life. Their childhood financially comfortable and yet emotionally nationally disjointed randy struggled at a sort of a point of view of life that was always completely so sensitive and he was so afraid. When did you first get an inkling knowing that something was wrong with Randy? Though I went off and I went to acting school and I was like nineteen or twenty something like that. He didn't have a direction direction. He didn't want to go to school and he hated working for my father and so it was sort of obvious that it was becoming unusual. I think mother and fog. This was the dilemma of their life. And this was the problem of their marriage to is that for dad it was the sun it was so important and for mom. It was protecting him a loner and outcast. She describes her brother's life as being spent on the other side of normal. Battling severe alcoholism Eliza unable to hold a job supported financially by her family. There wasn't a classic diagnosis in the sense. That growing up in the fifties. It wasn't a time when people talked talked about mental health. Show no no none of that absolutely not. My career is starting to take off more. I was gone almost all the time I lived in New York. We travel around and so I didn't see randy is often so I wasn't really in the thick of it. He drank a lot. Oh yeah did you ever directly. Try to stop them. Why because I just don't think that works? It wasn't like others hadn't tried. It wasn't like he hadn't seen psychiatrists or the on nothing. Nothing nothing made a difference as Randy's life floundered Diane's career took off do you know how do you sound art. Senators and presidents presidents. Don't have men talking about auditioning for the Godfather you saw. It was a waste of time totally. I was not the kind of actress to play a fine upper-class woman woman yes what were they thinking I didn't even want the role. I still believe that I still believe. I don't understand what they were thinking. And then a string of films with Woody Allen including including any hauling. Well what is your definition following as her family's archivist she combed through her brother's journal entries and letters like this one at one point. You made a little movie called. Red's Jack and I are both perfectly capable of living with our beliefs. Your brother writes you a letter. I'm going to read it. There are times in reds when I wanted to stop the projector so the moment wouldn't move so fast. Where did you learn to use your face so well I think he ran across every emotion in the book then through the book away and made up some of your own? That was sweet of what to say. I'm sorry Randy's writing. And his artwork helped Diane reconstructive Tis tortured mindset which shifted from disturbing imagery to lyrical poetry. I heard myself echoing out of the trees one more more sad voice. I heard my story reverberating in the air along with the other voices of failure at the foot of the mountains right came sleep. What makes you emotional as you read his words that it's sad to me? You know that that he had a difficult life. Diane's life in comparison flourished offscreen as well adopting two children in her fifties dexter and Duke. She was with them filming. Something's gotTa give. When she found out Randy was dying and needed a liver transplant in two thousand three? He received that new liver a second chance. Manse one she says he squandered as he kept drinking unapologetically and yet when he got that close to dying and he gets a new liver are now. Oh please don't even go there. Don't well yeah.

"This episode of unspoiled is brought to you by are very important friends in Vita on average over twenty seven thousand. Americans are diagnosed with breast cancer every month month. Invitation that is twenty seven thousand too many and that is why they are helping more people take control of their health through medical quality genetic testing whether that means continuing your current health routine or starting mammograms earlier yours can give you confidence that you're taking the right steps for you so learn more in order your kid's Day at invitation dot com that's I N. V. I t. eat dot com again I N. V. I T. E. DOT com. The air is one thousand nine hundred seventy seven and we are in a kitchen with a boy a girl and a bunch of lobsters upstairs. The movie Hello everybody and welcome to unspoiled. I'm John Paul. Scheer will be here in just a second but you need to him. You have me to say right now that this is was the show where every week we go through one of the films on the top one hundred list from two thousand seven and talk about what that film is like put it in the context of history put it in context of the modern era. Put It in context of what this phone contributes to this. Great Messy thing. We call cinema however you define cinema. We're not getting into the fight of what is cinema today last week. Paul and I were just dazzled to talk about the film the best years of our lives from nineteen forty six. It is a film about three soldiers offers or three different people from different branches of the military who returned home to their small town and just try to get their footing and the women that they love the families that they love. Try to get their footing to kids. That's it's a whole big lovely lovely beautiful film. That is kind of hard to find. We are sad about that and it was just blew poloway. He'd never there's definitely then he was like what are you. I only know that there is a man who has hooks for hands at. He walked away a best years of our life. Best Ya I don't know what the best is. I'm trying right. I think of a fan group for the best years anyway. We should come up with a name for the fans of the best years of our lives because it turns out there are just bazillions of them. Everybody who is in this movie loves this movie. I loved this week on just being online. Just having people say I'm so happy we're talking about this movie. Feels like a lot of people have stumbled across it on. TC M maybe seen it when they were kids. Maybe a father showed it to them grandfather. It's always special heart in their life and now they can talk about other people. And that is one of the most beautiful things about doing the show David Markham Fda Marco for you rights one of the best things about best years is that the title came from a throwaway line. Virginia Mayo's Rant as she leaves Dana Andrews and what were their best cheers. Was it before for homer during for Fred who was a hero or after you know or is it simply any period where the people are at peace. I think that's actually really interesting question because we talk a lot in the modern era about the best years of American history and it does feel like when you look at them. They weren't as best as everybody said until I like. This film itself comes from a throwaway line. That's also a bit of a sideline so I like that. Thank you David on that note Trevor Shaun. MD says that they are giving sight to us here unspoiled support for forgetting that DVD's a thing and the best years of our lives has been released in the format several times and can be bought for as little as two dollars. Yes yes yes. Yes yes okay Sean. You're very right. I'm just saying thing. It's the only one that you can't just stream and that does seem to be a thing. I'm sorry I'm terrified of hoarding and I don't like to own things. So that's on me over on facebook. Adam Thelma Hillman says I think this film absolutely belongs on the list. It's beautifully shot and acted. It tackles a number of topical themes with intelligence and honesty. I mean is there another high-calibre caliber film this air. That so openly deal with the problems faced by returning Gi's and it's subtly progressive about issues like alcoholism marriage almost no Hollywood films. Were until well after the the blacklist era absolutely agreeing. And I'm glad glad Dosso touching on that on the blacklist Aaron. How films like this of Wrath and other people talking about this episode made in parallel to is wild either film? This much of a big heart got so investigated. Sort of like if you found out that there was a giant F. B. I.. File on Fred Rogers. which perhaps they're honestly was? There was one quibble that we had with the movie which is just that the sun that apparently Frederick Mark says there in the film at the very beginning just absolutely vanishes is and never seen again. Dr West Anthony on twitter writes well Fredric March Sunday. The best of our lives goes where he belongs on the cutting room floor. Gad's oops he was the only lousy. How's the actor in that picture? There were chairs more charismatic than him. Which helped ouch ouch? Ouch ouch ouch. Ouch but maybe fair. If if you're listening and you consider those fighting words well that's fine. That is a decent segue into our intro to this week's film n Hall as you know in any hall. There's a scene where woody woody. Allen is in line for the movie theater he gets mad at a at what a man is egg behind him about Meteo cinema any polls in the great intellectual Marshall McLuhan to tell him that he's wrong wrong so we asked you last week. If you bring anyone into an argument who would you bring to help you win. So if I could bring anyone new argument James Madison. There's somebody political arguments about gun control or peacemaker anything where people like. Oh the founders. Intended this that it'd be great just to be able to say Houston gene partisan. Just tell us what you intended. And then we'll probably ignore it anyway the next time someone says that something a little bit out of the ordinary surreal. I'd like to call in the father of surrealism himself Andre Town so that he could go. This is not so. It's not the least bit area. It could never be. I would love to bring Jesus into a conversation literally anyway so he could look at them to like you know. That's not really what I had by. Yeah I'M GONNA go with Emily Dickenson. I'm visiting the Hailee. Steinfeld show right now. My favorite film released this year. Was Molly Shannon. Twelve right away but I lost else just to pull her out in conversations with straight washers who think that gay people exist prior to the nineteen eighties and just have be like that curl and I were not just friends. The Fire Brandon me. The woman was very sharp lobster claws loves all of those answers. Thank you very much and also also I just want to. Second that Muller Shannon's wild nights with emily is fantastic. I review that movie out of south by and it was so so so so fun definitely a movie that went under the radar and should be checked act out. We'll put a pin in that because now it's time for our feature presentation before we get into today's episode. We want to offer you a a trigger warning because this is going to be talking about a woody Allen Film and we know that that carries a lot of baggage and we wrestled with how to talk about this movie and saying we. We talked about Chinatown. We wanted to make sure that a we are acknowledging. What we know about Woody Woody Allen and giving you a chance to check out if you don't want to hear a conversation about him where we will be complimenting him and speaking highly of from this is going to be our chance to kind of talk about the the major issues That are held against them. And then we're going to go into our actual episode. Yeah I mean the issues with woody allen kind of boil down to two things one of which is very established. Nobody disagrees on that. He cheated on his wife Mia Farrow with their adopted daughter scene. Gene unmarried her and they're still married to her today and the second is that he is accused of molesting another daughter that he had another doctor had with me a pharaoh when she was seven years old and he has denied the allegations. The Connecticut State Attorney did investigate the allegations but did not press charges In one reason that we've been told they didn't press charges is just that me didn't want her daughter to have to go through the experience of being cross examined on the stand when she was really young. This has split the family and this is split L.. A. Lot of woody Allen's acquaintances friends supporters end enemies and those are the established facs debatable fact. Yes and it's something that has has been going on for quite a long time and it seems like now more recently a tight is really turned in the last couple of years. You know you see actors making some bold statements like I would never work with Woody Allen again other actors donating money that they got from working on Woody Allen Projects to Organizations to help abused used molested children. And even it's turned into Woody Allen. Losing his deal at Amazon which is currently in a lawsuit with so this has been something. That's been going on for a long time and is still very much a a thing that that is in our culture that is Kind of being part. I as or as much as last week people are coming out saying I would or would not work with him. So this film that we're talking about was before the the events that we just described and we're just gonNa Kinda know this and if this bothers you and I would say turn it off now and we'll see you next week and it'll be La di DA. It's one thousand nine hundred seventy seven in Glenn Burke Dusty Baker of the Los Sandra dodgers invent the high five. That's right right here in. La after seeing Star Wars James Cameron quits his job as a truck driver and he decides to pursue film mm-hmm Nike Draws Inspiration from the last words of executed murderer Gary Gilmore. Who uttered just do it eight year? Old Miskel spillman host. SNL after winning their anyone can host contest the Atari Twenty six hundred console Chia pets and some faster all released for the first time. The big movies are star. Wars smoking the bandit Saturday night. Fever ever entities film Annie Hall. It's number thirty. Five on the two thousand seven AF top one hundred list having slipped four points from the original placement in the nineteen eighteen ninety. Seven list wow every weekly. I suspect you're making up at least one or two things on that list. That's fine just do it. We'll carry on. Let's start by listening to tainting. All I keep sifting the pieces of the relationship through my mind and then examining my life and trying to figure out where the screw up come you know and a year your ago we were in love you know and and I just and it's funny I'm not I'm not a morose type. I'm not a depressive character. I you know I was reasonably assembly. Happy Kid I guess I was brought up in Brooklyn during World War Two. He's been depressed all of a sudden he can't do anything. Why are you I? OBVI- tell Dr Flicker it's something he read you ran universes expanding universe versus expanding. The Universe is everything and if it's expanding someday we'll bring a part in how will be the end of everything. What is that Your Business? That voice you hear is of course director and star Woody Allen who co wrote the script with Marshall Brickman and. It is a story about a break-up and a story about a man looking at his child at his past neuroses sees figuring out what his problem is and what he brings in all of his relationships. You have several people. Playing his ex-girlfriend's cocaine Shelley Duvall Desert Margolin and of course his Israel ex girlfriend Diane Keaton as any hall. And we got a mention Tony Roberts as his best friend Robert. WE'RE GONNA be talking to later in the show so excited talking Tony Roberts Amy. This film is actually very difficult for me to kind of talk about. Because I can't look at it from a unbiased point of view as far as being a fan of this movie is part of me you know I I love it. I feel like so much of comedy is birthed from from this movie. That the same way the pulp fiction kind of just is inside of me. That's how I feel about this movie. It's just it's such a through line comedic medically about any all. I'm so sorry that the thing that popped in my head was I just want to ask you. Do you have any woody Allen inside of you. Oh Boy oh boy sorry after that big disclaimer at the top OP. You're GonNa talk about it right away. What I that's just a classic vaudeville type of punch line? That I think would say himself. No I mean Yeah Annie Hall has been in the fabric of my life. As long as I think I've been trying to watch classic movies and what I'm really interested to talk about what you today is. How much this movie in? Different me on this. Watch the older. I get the more in depth in it that I don't think I even saw when I was a kid. Does that make sense like this is a movie that I think I saw woody Allen thinking he's cute and Smug and smarmy and the movie being so much on his side and then this I was like. Oh Wow this is really very very much a movie about a man looking at what a Dick is. Yeah this is a really triumphant story for Diane Keaton's character for any halt she. We basically separates herself from him to become a better person like he's holding her down and it's not really the trajectory that you see of many films that are trying to ape this movie. I think that if you look at comedy films Romantic Comedy Films. Everyone's trying to do their riff on this story. And this has a a sad ending ultimately that is actually really triumphant. The you leave feeling positive even though the two characters have gone their separate ways. Yeah I mean the chronology of this is really interesting because because you have woody Allen going through a lot of his past relationships chronologically you goes through Carol Kane who was his first then Janik was the second wife he eventually gets dating. Shelley Shelley duvall later on but his relationship with any happens in reverse. You see them at their worst right at the right at the start of the movie you see them slowly backwards in time backwards in time fall to the point where they met. Then you wash them progresses they fall in love and break up again and then you wash them break up again and so you you see the relationship it so many stages and I think because as say like why did I just assume. This movie was on his side when I was in high school. And I think it's because the first introduction we have any hall is when she is just furious and breaking up with him and mad they start. He starts their relationship at the worst part she says. What did you do? Come by way of the canal bed Munoz's standing with the cast of the Godfather and have to learn to deal with it. I'm dealing with two guys named Cheech. Hey sleaze I have a headache all right Warren Abedin. ooh U's beginning a period. I'm not getting my period. Jesus every time anything out of the ordinary happens you think that I'm getting my period. I think one of them may have missed every time we get introduced to her as being so mad at him. Also that throwaway line that is with the cast of the Godfather is so funny because he actually is with the cast of the Godfather. But it is her Diane Keaton and and also the movies. DP is Gordon Willis. Who Shot the Godfather? I mean this is and this is maybe a year after. The Godfather comes out the godfather references. They're staring at people in the park. And he's like that guys from the Godfather Joe how big that film was. But you know. I think this idea that woody Allen Elon is the hero is basically because he has all the jokes. And that's under the Diane. Keaton is not incredibly funny and charming and great but he literally he has jokes and and so I think you feel connection to him but he showing. He's a Dick Right here because he basically blames her bad mood on her period Korea like it's a really insightful examination of oneself because I think this character Alvie Singer is essentially what we assume woody Allen is has tried to deny over and over again but you can't deny when basically Alvie singer is a version of almost every character he has kind of played they all have similar elements in this character follows an incredible career trajectory of Woody Allen. I mean they're using real clips from the cabinet. Show they are you know he is ill. Cliffs Suck that forest and also at the end he's writing rating of play of any hall. Like which is it's so I love it but I mean that's what is so kind of jeans the movie and I I didn't realize it before he's doing so many things here from messing with timelines to jumping into animation shen. He is playing with very big ideas of talking to the camera. Interact with people. Some things feel like a documentary almost and then and are these real people. Are these actors stopping people in the street. It there's a lot of Really naturalistic performances. It's a really interesting movie. That fluctuates tweets between all these towns. But yet at the core is incredibly incisive and I think that that's what I've always kind of missed speaking of kind of like the heroes imbalance of the script like alga Singer is the one who's able to stop time right right. He's able to stop time and he's able to look at you audience. He's able to just be in this ghostly beige background world and be like. Here's how I see things. He's able to even take the other characters on this a Christmas Carol Scrooge mcduck version of of his childhood. He said we'll be like all right. Anne Tony You guys are coming with me. We're going to watch my childhood together and comment on it like. It's the Christmas past or something. So he's able to do all these things to try to convince the audience to be on his side. But this I really noticed noticed how much woody Allen himself is calling himself out in his crecy in the scenes themself. Because here's a guy who spends his entire movie yelling loudly to the camera about everything everything he's mad about everything he's embarrassed about in every time Annie Hall tries to say I'm upset about this. He's like Sh- people can hear you. So he's insisting even in the movie that he gets the last word and I think he's aware of the hypocrisy. Well yes I mean. The final scene of the film are one of the final scene is like I said he's writing a play about the relationship where he changes the ending you know she decides to stay with him in his version so ultimately Alvie singer is an unreliable narrator because at the end of the film. We know that the story that he's telling telling is based on the way that he wanted it to be or the way that he saw himself which I love and I think that that end forgives everything nothing else because it shows him for who he is. He's not trying to hide it. And I think coming about this film at least the way I I saw it. It's a very in different type of film. In the way it was built. I think the first version of the script. It wasn't even a love story. I actually listened to Marshall Brickman his Co. writer talk about how how the script evolved and was not even a dominant character in the first draft. There were a lot of women different wives that was the one that ultimately became carol. Cain was a wife and when he was much different the the girl the dominant other you know part of the relationship was a New York girl. We're all just like woody In the first draft and then the secondary aft- She was from Wisconsin with a totally different background. So already you know you could see the development of some desire to to to create some potential for tension and disagreements and different backgrounds. And so on. So you know. There's that element that he's kind of playing around with what this movie is even about. There's a part where it was going to be a murder mystery you know. Oh and that actually was taken out and then using Manhattan murder mystery years and years later he did. This movie seems to have evolved in a way where he founded as he was making it and as he was editing it and maybe at that end where he starts to see all these puzzle pieces like Oh. I made a movie about myself. He didn't even realize how introspective he was until he saw the pieces. The original cut is like four hours and this movie comes in very brisk ninety minutes but but it seems from everything I've read as if it was cold all in the Senate like no that needs to go here and they reshot the ending and and I think they reshot the opening to kind of put these book ends on it like he found the movie or found it in a way that is incredibly personal but not realizing it and I love that. I love that we have a salute to an editor also four hours. It feels like I'm surprised that AF I didn't just owner the for our cut and put it up there because like a ninety minute movie. How how dare they look list but again it's a great thing to show? The all comedy should be ninety minutes. I'm a big believer in this bloated thing where everything everything has to be two hours a dozen. Just keep it short and simple. Yeah I mean one of the people who saw like a midpoint cut. That was two hours and twenty minutes. They called it quote the surrealistic stick in abstract adventures of neurotic. Jewish comedian ultimately uninteresting. Just kind of a surreal. Exercise is by pruning I appreciate the the willingness to be able to Prune it away and put Diane Keaton as the Star. Yes that's lovely. I feel like this film focuses so much on her. That it's absolutely beautiful. I mean he said that like writing Diane Keaton and this is sort of a long quote but bear with me. He said before any hall he always wrote quote from the guy's point of view you then when I was leaving Keaton shoe so funny and she was so smart that she opened my eyes to so much just by experiencing things with her. I started to look at the world. Is I think it may have. I've been William Gibson the playwright who said that when you love someone you have experiences through their eyes and I still look at things there is. I can emphasize I can empathize with are seeing the same bridge or there's a movie movie the same sunset or the same characters talking over dinner. I see through her because of her. I started writing for women in so I appreciate that like I I. I think he's really sincere. There was going to ask you about this and not to represent all women but what I really loved about this movie was I think it gives a very layered and three dimensional portrayal of a woman in a comedy film and I think in the many copies we've seen of this film. The woman is always are more times than not shortchanged right. It is more dominantly dude focus. It's like oh the guy learns to grow up and give up his childish things or you know and I feel like this is a movie that if you watch it as a young woman or young man or are an older man and older woman you can see both sides so you can have a hero in both sides you know. It's not just a dude movie and I thought that was actually. I think that's what I pulled from it. This time a little bit more allow this. She is as well form does he. Is I think so too. I don't know if it's growing up in having more relationships and thinking a lot about how you mutate a little bit depending on what are you with that. I was able to see we talk so much about like the Anti Hall costuming and this was really paying attention to how the costuming shows his effect on her like win. Their relationships ships are bad. She starts dressing like him. She's wearing these darker kind of jackets and more black turtlenecks and things and you see that she is a very different person and the movie it flat out out says so and somehow I missed it in her previous relationships like when she was a pretentious director actor guy that she became this artistic downtown girl. And when you look at our costumes assumes the movie is saying he is ruining her life even through the close. He's making her a different person. You play very well. I'll yes study you. Oh God it would've been a dumb thing to say right. I mean you say you will right away. I asked to say you play well. Oh God any well oh well Lottie. Da Lied Isla you you WANNA lift Oh why You got a car. You mean no I was going to take a camp. Oh No I have you ever Cau- so if you have a cost so then then wh why did you say. Do you have a car like you WANNA live I. Jeez I don't know I wasn't if I got this. Vw Out there but it's your yeah. Yeah would you like a list that anyhow there is the real Annie Hall and away. That's any hour when she's single and she's not being influenced in any way by him. You know they they say the Diane Keaton actually were on clothes. And that seems so Diane Keaton to me right there you know. I think she is vibrant and alive and it's odd had fascination about wanting to make the person that we fall in love with to become more alike us even though the thing that probably attracted us to them in the. The first place isn't that they were like it's it's a it's a struggle that I think we all have because once you get into a relationship you you lose that individuality I think Lorne Michaels said this quote and sticks out to me. It's like you spend your entire relationship trying to make this person into what you want them to be and then you leave them once they become that. Because you're sick you don't want that person and that he probably said it better than that but I decided idea idea that you were kind of changing the thing that that connected you and I don't know how to avoid that fall into that trap. Yeah exactly like he starts wanting to share the books he loves about death. Like have this book about death. Stop Reading Cat Magazines or whatever the accusers magazine sound. Great like you like kept magazines. Have this book on death. And she's like okay is like you should go into therapy. And then her being in therapy starts being one of the keys that makes her realize she's unhappy with this relationship into this going and it makes miserable in a way because she is able to talk out loud in here when she's unhappy. We already talking about how Woody Allen is so closely associated with Elvis singer but I also think that Diane Keaton has been locked amber as we think of her as Annie Hall and people like you. You Know Diane Keaton. Her real name is Diane Hall and her nickname is Anne and I think there's a lot of Diane Ni right. I'm trying to figure out how this would work. Well I'll have Diane. Keaton tell you a little bit about how her nicknames came up and if it's actually even true what's your real name Diane Hall My name is Diane and people used to call are you anne. Never they never called me any no. They always call me. Diane or di Di Stuck When I was really young it was diapers diapers? I mean really nice things like that so you don't ordinary very ordinary type person. So I think he he captured the essence of that. Yeah I mean the Lahti dust I never said Laudi done my life until he wrote it but I was a person who is you know. Couldn't complete a sentence so so I think that is interesting because I think we want her her to be Annie Hall so much and I would buy that. She is less Annie Hall than he is. Woody Allen I mean that makes sense because I was really on the drive here I heard heard the anti was her nickname to when I was just messing with di any I don't understand I KINDA WANNA call bullshit on this because I don't know where you any from Diane. I mean if your name is Diana anybody caused you any. I'm pleased last now. I'm curious about this but she does still dress like this character. I'd watch this Brendan Gleeson Movie. That came out this year. I don't even remember the name. But she's like like a rich woman and getting a divorce or husband died and Brennan gleason is homeless and so she wants to help save his shack and they fall in love in any way. She's just exactly like any hall in the whole movie. She's got a little belt. Got Little Hat on hoping I love it. I saw her once at a party. And I just was so impr- she still carries herself in this way that whatever she's wearing whether it's long gloves or like she is the most interesting I'm in I'm I wanna I wanNA watch her. You know she always. Is this amazing fashion plate of something that no one else is wearing. Yeah I which is why. I think it's interesting that there's been in so many fights over. Who came up with Annie Hall? Look like Ralph. Lauren has tried to take credit for it. He's like I designed some of those pieces so obviously they are mine and other people have been like him you. You designed like only that Tuxedo jackets or you don't get to. Graham any wholeness. Their costume. Designer apparently hated the. Look that that Diane Keaton was wearing but but then the costume designer think took a little bit more credit for later as needed to me is really fun. Like I love the idea that it reminded me actually of Katherine Hepburn Number Katherine Hepburn love to pants and brought this pants. Look to the films in the forties. Diane Keaton feels very hepburn to me. Oh you now that you say that. I can't get that out of my head. That's a brilliant comparison like it really is they have their these forces of nature very different But also they carry Harry themselves the same way. I love that. Yeah there's even a little bit at screwball heroine just in who Danke news right her inability to finish the sentence which I feel like identify With very deeply. And she said when Woody Allen said he was writing a comedy for her she's like I don't tell jokes like how are you writing comedy for me. How can I do comedy? I'm woman who was in the Godfather a father and he was like just who are. You don't have to tell the joke now. That sounds like you are the joke. But in the nicest way Williams I think he's writing for her quirks quirks. Her quirks are. She's not telling jokes. She is portraying this character you know and and she's doing it really. Well what I also realized about this movie when I think makes exit way more powerful than the clones and they keep on referencing the clones but it starts talking about Star Wars. The clone were really Confu. No no no no Django. Fat Comparisons here. Amy But the movie opens with Woody Allen as a forty year old man and you know in these clones not star wars clones but in these clones. That are stealing from this a lot of the Times. You're making Woody Allen movie about twenty somethings things are thirtysomethings and there's something about being a forty year old man that locks this movie in a different time like he is an antisocial character. He's not going to change time for two lives exactly and you don't often see that any but no but they think that that's a different story it is. It's not okay. Oh my gosh. What will our future? We'll have kids. I think there is a it's to me. It feels like a New York story. I mean obviously it's New York story But it captures people who live in New York. I think you're you. You live your life in New York and you may start your your family life a little bit later and I think that's something that's actually now caught up Culturally but back then. It sort of New Yorkers carried that with them you know they were getting married later. It wasn't at the forefront of their mind and I think think the problems of falling in love later in life like what is convenient to do or what is just easy versus like actually challenging yourself and getting out of that that that bubble and what makes us movie for me triumphant and going back to Diane Keaton is. She is triumphant she she grows. She's got the ARC and and in an An amazing way and so this also just cool to see a character of that age evolve. She He seems to think of her evolving as disastrous like when she moves to California and starts wearing white and I love that. There's this kind of visual joke. Where so many of the people in California are wearing white all joined the same Colt Holt? Yes the white. The health food restaurant. They're eating at was a colt run. Health Food Restaurant by the way. Shout out to fat Burger. I got the original fat Burger. Stand in in that montage when they're showing up very much like the movie we did last week. Yeah we saw the tail of other hotdog standards like that's right. Best Years of our lives. I love it. I didn't I was was really appreciative to see fatburger. Starting out as a stand. And that's one of my favorite Burger places that here but you know this movie I'm a New Yorker. I grew up in New York. I lived in Manhattan for for a long period of time and I think you know being a long island I had to be a billy Joel Fan and then being a New Yorker I needed to be a woody Allen Fan as well and I and this movie it brings up everything they love about New York and when I first saw it as L. A.'s. The worst now I live in L. A. in L. A. person but it everything about L. A. is unchanged changed its unchanged. That's that's the crazy thing about this movie. I feel like New York is unchanged to a certain degree and so as la. It's they're the same entity I mean. Yes some slight differences. But not much. I mean you could make this movie. Put this out right now and everything works. I mean in a way they have had. I don't know if you've seen a marriage story yet. I was going to say. Is this the perfect comp for this movie I mean Noah Baumbach is one of my favorite filmmakers. I love everything he does and I was thinking about that a lot watching us. I haven't seen yet what Betcha. There's a lot of similarities here. Yeah very much. I saw marriage story. Maybe two months ago the playwright character Adam driver the New York intellectual his actress Giggly Blonde Wife airplay by Scarlett Johansson who wants to move back to California and there is like East Coast West Coast divide the whole. How can you be a person who loves the side of the city? And I wasn't thinking of any hall when I saw it but then when I was like Oh my God how many times a new about them back. Watch this movie. When he made a marriage story which is still excellent? Very great fingerprints of everything. I mean you know you can see it in direct comparisons from you. You know what Louis. CK does or Lena Dunham does or broad city. I was even talking before you came here today. Like you see what Donald Glover does with Atlanta like this movie. V is so ingrained in our culture and but he's creating all these very specific things that I feel like our woody Allen `ISMs like intensely personal things and when I watch something like Atlanta there are these you know it's it's very otter driven and not to say that he's the first altar but I think people are always trying to April Woody Allen style style and I like when someone just does what Woody Allen did which has become an otter and take their own things and put it out there not trying to do a version of what Woody Allen. I mean that's there and I think that is half of why any hall is to me and my personal favorite woody Allen by leaps and bounds because yes it is that very much permanent establishment of the tour of who is voice is narrowing it down from the the fun woody on the comedian. The the more like artificial performer sell to like the more intimate style but also layered with the fact that this is the film where it's not about him even though it is who I think he pushes himself to make it about her in that balance of it's like it's like. He found a dance partner in this film with Dan. Keaton into the gift of all the time that this film gives to her outside of his brain or being aware that we're looking at her brain through his brain. That makes me like this one better than the rest of them. Where like I think? A lot of tourists death is just someone in a corner nine on their nails and just talking to themselves of and how they're being heard. Well I think the other thing that he does that makes these characters. Come to life in these scenes pop. Are these long shots. What's that are not locked off but the camera is not cutting for close ups? It's it's staying or tracking with them and that I think really helps comedy. You know. Obviously Woody Allen comes from a a Broadway background and comedy background and I think sometimes comedy best plays when you're not cutting in a million directions when you look even something like Manhattan. They do that. Brilliant scene where. He's like walking down the stairs getting a book still having a conversation while she's upstairs it allows I think it feel real connected and grounded and an alive in a way so it doesn't pull the audience's attention. Now look at Woody Allen. Now get Diane Keaton. It's like no no. You can watch US seen any which way you want so much so that that first scene where. You're introduced Tony Roberts character. You don't even know where they're where they are like they're rounding the corner walking towards camera like they. They're so far in the distance and I I love that I love that you get these along. It seems as an actor. Those are the best scenes because you get a rhythm and a flow going and it's not it's not interrupted erupted by cuts. You actually have a tangible there. I think the appetite steals that a lot not steals. It uses techniques for comedies. Just it just feels a comedy feels more alive. I think when you're able to not cut away every two seconds. I mean that scene that you're describing. I always get thrown off. Because there's the other two people at the end of the block and I'm I'm always staring at them. And I forget to even look for for Woody Allen coming up am I like. They seem like they're getting closer but they're not like the right there. Never see them. It's really weird. It's is a strange optical illusion. I don't know what happens to my brain. But Roger Ebert when he wrote about this film he did some calculation he wrote about it of course when it came out and he wrote about it later and he was like the average shot length in any hall is fourteen and a half seconds and he said the other films in nineteen seventy seven their average shot length was between four seconds and seven seconds so it was much longer longer and then when he wrote this piece which I think ten years ago he was like now the average dot linked is two and a half seconds and now now like some of our favorite films like Madam Nice Stereo. The average shot length is one point. Seven seconds no anything. We're always cutting as things get shorter and shorter and shorter. Were trying to jam as much as we can into ooh shot and and it's so nice and that's why like Noah Baumbach to Noah Baumbach lets's movies breath in that's important that those little moments that you defined in silence and in just watching characters be Insp- in a space and we talked about this other films too. I think you know Elia Kazan does that streetcar. You get to see characters exist in a space and same for last week's movie the best years of our lives there. You're there with them. I'm kind of circling around this idea that you were talking about like. Why do we connect with Woody Allen or why do we think this is really a woody Allen movie? Even though. The movie's called Annie any hall. He did want to be called temporarily. Alvian any which I think would have thrown it off. I mean first of all this movie was called and Adonia which is the inability ability to feel pleasure. But please please don't name it that they they actually even had like a mockups Antonio coming to Chicago and like the producer was begging egging them. Please change it and they had a couple of working titles which is like it had to be ju a roller coaster named desire me and my Goi and in my an Alvie. I mean imagine it. This movie was called a roller coaster coaster named desire or had to be. Ju I mean it's very. It's very much in tone with the Woody Allen films before this you know. Bananas is in everything he needed to know about sex these comedy titles but O.. L. The title is elevate it also just on the note of any Alvie. This is only my boyfriend and I talk about because my name starts with an A.. In his name starts with an A.. In we have this theory like all of his ex-girlfriend's also have names that start with an A.. I have many expert Pizarro. A that eight people gravitate to each other and it's just something in the back of elementary school being put an alphabetical order. I don't know if this is your name starts with a P.. I know it's in the middle. Oh I'm sure makes it more confusing. It's fine I mean look I would say but W. in D. I mean that's that's woody and Diane Diane W empty. Ah You're jumping through hoops to make sense of what I'm saying today. Who Do you think of Star Wars and weapons of mass destruction? But let's talk about the yellowcake so let's think about JFK and the assassination. And I love that show that as a gravitate towards each other people think this is true but I I have found it to be true. And we've thrown down the gauntlet to you with questions about are you Diane called Anne and do as as gravitate towards each other. You know this idea of being a woody allen film is hard to wrap our head with because it's it's named any hall. It's not named Alvin Obvi- Singer. Why do we connect to it? As Woody Allen Story I think is equally weighted and Harold Ramos was interviewed about this film uh-huh and he actually made a really good point. He said he would read psychology today a lot to kind of get ideas for movies and things and he found that most people have. I have a dream of celebrity and when any hall came out in that time Woody Allen was the most dreamt about person and for meets because he represented everyone's vulnerability. Everyone's feelings that they were less than they needed to be. They weren't big enough or handsome enough or just attractive enough in general. He's he's neurotic. He's he's an APP. Tease lots of things. And and maybe that's why people were dreaming about him because he represents that Yep. I won't say the dark side. The you know the the the side of all of us that we fear that were not good enough. I mean I do feel like part of any hall hit so big. As it was a six film. He'd been making good stuff and it's sort of like when you watch someone grow up. And then they show you what they're capable of and you're like yes that and L.. Leave it to people to decide for themselves if they think he topped it of. This is really just as high point so this to me this is is i. I love this me. His high point they did say this is my favorite but I would say crimes and misdemeanors is my favorite. I mean it would be a real battle. And they're very different films. I think any hall has an effect on culture. That crimes misdemeanors but crimes and misdemeanors is I mean even thinking about it. It's one of my. It's one of my favorite films that he made. Wow I would you ever want that one on the list instead. No only because if we're going to our rule that one film represents a director. I believe leave. This is the more important film culturally. This is the more important fill that one is a is a grammy. I think he's growing as a filmmaker. He's doing so so many interesting things but this one. The tentacles of this movie are enormous. I mean to your point about the dreams like using the dream logic. Chicken this movie if Diane Keaton is going to therapy which woody Allen actually did make her do when they were dating or moving And she said that like she was actually Secretly Bulimia at the time in hiding it from him and that going to the therapist helped her try to wrestle with her me Mia But Anyway if she in this movie is dreaming about Frank Sinatra and her therapist is like he's a singer. Elvis name is singer. You're dreaming about Alley. If people in the seventies are dreaming about Woody Allen Alan are they really dreaming about say Jimmy Stewart went a long way for that long way way and the most tenuous of connections to be done about that that fair senior senior. That's split screen. You know that is shot simultaneously on one set with an adjoining wall. Now I I think he probably just shoot them separately. But that idea of going back to Wyatt Blondes. Unless is it influences. So many things on such a small level like thank. You can see elements of Woody Allen Camera. I think Nick Kroll kind of did that for Kroll show like he would talk to Cam about his life and kind of go into sketches and it's so who minuscule at what everyone kind of takes from it and you like all great things. It looked so simple it looked so selfish short. Like your you know. Why am I not doing that? I should do that. I can do that. And that's like it's a it's it's the best compliment because it looked so easy to that point. I want to listen to the therapy soon. Because I think it's just such a good example of how both people have absolutely different views of the same facts may love that that that you get equal point of view of both him and US would. He takes off his shirt. He's kind of writ right. I didn't notice that but I didn't think of. I actually thought of him as being very much in shape like I noticed him in his tennis. Well he's got like a very you know very not cut bod but a very nicely compact body well okay. Hey this isn't a therapist. Wow you're stays ripped dame Brooklyn was the last day I remember really having any laughs anymore. Is the problem apple. I've been moody and Dissatisfy. Do you sleep together. Sex often hardly ever maybe three times a week constantly. I'd say three times a week like the other night album with me the other night you know I mean six months ago I would have done it I would just I tried everything I I put on soft music and my my red light bulb and but the thing is I mean since our discussions here I feel I have a right to my own feelings which I think it would have been happy because I really asserted myself incredible thing about it is. I'm paying for her analysis and she's making progress and I'm getting screwed though I mean I feel so guilty because so you know so I do feel guilty if I do put a bed with them. It's going on. I'm not I can't win. Sometimes I think progress sometimes I think I should just live with a woman. I love that also. This subtle difference of he is in traditional analysis analysis. Not Looking at the therapist laying down old schoolroom would leather couch. And she is in a more modern I would say like psychotherapy Geico therapy or like you know. She's she's she's you know. Hopefully we don't see your therapists looking at her therapist and in a more modern room and I think that even though subtle do things just show you how far he's old school. He's doing the old thing she's kind of going in front of him. I mean you could have avocado toast in the room. That she's in right now but to say that I wanNA hear where they fall in love because I think that's a really beautiful and really important. I think they sell the scene so well that this seen working is why we really root for them. Even despite seeing that they shouldn't beating we like we know. You're extremely sexy. Unbelievably sexy issue. Because because you know what you're you're you're polymorphism perverse within You're you're exceptional in bed because you got you get pleasure. Sure every part of your body when I touch your nose and fi stroke your teeth or your kneecaps excited you know you know I like you I really I really do love me. I only known me while I think that's sort of. Yeah Yeah do you. Love is is too weak word for I love you which I a low view I I love to access. Yes I I have to invent of course I do. I mean what's interesting thing is. They're having the same conversation about the same things. Basically the whole time the first time he's in her apartment and she's worried that she's not smart enough for him. In the subtitles she continues is to worry about that until they break up. And he's always obsessed with their sex life in here he's talking about how she gets pleasure everywhere she does because she's high and later on he has a real problem with her being high by a good thing to him that she enjoys it so much but he later on can't appreciate it in the same way trying to change the person it's interesting because Alvin never says the the words I love you to her that he does say like I love you. It's not strong enough word but he never says I love you which is an interesting. An interesting He really really only talks about her. Allot primarily through sex. It's not like it. He kind of fails to recognize what we the audience see in her. You know I think that that's and that's why I think the movie is triumphant at the end. Even though they break up she is finally being and appreciated for who she is a full person and not just the physical intimate connection that these two characters. It's almost like she fulfilled one part word of him but she wasn't necessarily getting fulfilled by like he he was oh she was like a possession of his like I got. This is what I got. She'll oh give me sex and that's not a bad thing that's indicative of people in relationships all the time But she gets to grow. I think that's in that final scene of them. Catching up this idea of like. Can you be friends after you break up and and all that sort of stuff. I feel like that that conversation whether it's insane anything whether it's here is a constant debate and have you ever kept a relationship with somebody after you broke up with them. Yeah I think I used to pride myself on being friends with all of my exes and I maintained tained rat until two axes ago when I to x is our own I was like I don't need it I'm fine. I'm still friends with so many of my ex's and I really think they're a great. I think I used to pride myself feeling. I picked good people which is why I'm able to be friends with them. I'm Mike Buck them. I mean why why this person rejected you on a base level or are you rejected them like get out of there get outta there. Yeah sure selected. Sure get out of their. You're a guilty guilt. We all carry. I mean look. I'm not saying I don't want to or tried to. I think that I got better as a human being once you determine like oh I don't need to be regular everyone's like let's be friends and then you try that for about four months you know go. I'll check in with them and you're and then after five months when how much again this person or are you just forget your life goes on. You're like yeah I don't need like. Why am I doing this to myself? I don't need this idea like wanted to be friends. I'm always I really like almost was on my ex's I really do. I got Ford versus the other day and I immediately texted next. I'm like Oh you're GONNA love this. I can't I don't WanNa be in the cards. You break up with them. Yeah that's that's that's the trick. Amy When you break up of course you want to be friends because you guy keeps you keeps you hanging in there. I'm not a bad person we're friends we're friends now. I love this movie and I should have done research enough to figure out her name but I love the girl that he dates after Anne the one in the Jean shorts smoking the cigarette regret with the lobster. Like it's such a great performance. It's so she's doesn't find him. Funny is so uninterested in him and I love the juxtaposition of that earliest thing with the lobster and how much fun they're having how playful it is and it's such a iconic scene from film history are happy happy. Oh it's so great and then you see that scene at the end and it's it's so true like he's like kind of recreating something that he did with her and it does not can't even click on any level. It's like oh I love it so much Z.. Carol Kane in here because I love Carol Kane. Mary scourged person I mean by the way there's two scrooge people in this movie you talked about earlier John Glover. Elliot's the actor who plays that great. He's also I think he plays Louvers. Dad on Superman using gremlins is to And Scrooge I don't think I've seen anything more beautiful in my life than cocaine with a giant ponytail and shadowed away it's like rimmed around. Her is really lovely and soft often kind of pink. It's great 'cause I feel like Carol Kane is playing against type again in a weird way of you to do this movie now not now but Shelley Duvall Paul. I think you would have Cara Kane. The Shelley duvall character. The more flighty character. I like a different version of Kane than I'm used to seeing and I love shelley duvall on this as well. Yeah I mean it's awesome to see Shelley duvall year after Nashville here being one of the characters that he seems to make fun of all the time I think if you were like who is our intellectual comedian everybody would like Woody Allen but in this movie all he does is trash on intellectuals he's not happy with anything or anybody. I think even shown in that scene when they're breaking up at the end where he hasn't impeach impeach everybody who has been president. He's every everybody but him he's unhappy with and he's unhappy with himself. He just doesn't commented on it that much. We talk a little bit more about some of the cameos. I mean you have Jeff Goldblum in here with one of the best lines just a cameo performance you. We know calling to remind himself because he forgot his mantra. Like what's his mantra end. Paul Simon I didn't I mean I've seen this so many times. I don't Wii didn't really think about Paul. Simon is a major part in this movie. He's such a great character in this film. He's so intimidating without out being anything of what the intimidating other man looks like I mean. That's that's what he does so well at all the troops that we do they kind of. Don't do them the way that Woody Allen Ellen doesn't like Paul Simon is the nemesis to woody Allen like they're both like it's funny they're equal they're very equal and I think that's great. It's not not like I think it'd be like Matthew mcconaughey. You know that kind of guy. I mean that's true. It is funny that like he has her break up with him for someone shorter and then we see him again in the future. He's with sigourney weaver sought when they're really far away. Underneath the theater. Marquee is like I can bag a tall all eighty. And you know. I'd be remiss if we did not at least mentioned Christopher Walken who I mean kind of doing like dead zone own before dead zone right if feels so much like his character dead zone. It's like just great. I mean what a great scene gene and We have to listen to something I want to say about. This happens right afterwards. I tell you this because as an artist I think you'll understand sometimes when I'm driving on the road at night. I see two headlights coming toward me. Fast I I have this sudden impulse to turn the wheel quickly head on into the oncoming car. I can anticipate the explosion. The sound of shattering in glass the flames rising gasoline right. Well I have to go now twain because I I'm due back on the planet earth. What I love is then immediately the next thing? We see that Eh Dwayne has been tapped to drive them to the airport. And you have this moment. I think is one of the moments that quietly really sums of their entire relationship dynamic. which is the three of them in the car? Are you know any Dwayne an alley and Alvi is aware that doing is dangerous. And he's all full of anxiety like he's been this whole time anticipating death breath full of doom and gloom Anne next to him not having had this conversation and oblivious unhappy thinking everything is fine and have him resenting her contentment him simmering was something that he knows and she doesn't it feels very much like who they are and they've just had this great seam- they've gone to her family. I think that the Dan actually did you know he's maybe eating some of that Jello Ellos out on the table. I don't know this also is incredibly awkward there because he feels that they're looking at him simply as a Jewish man. Like you know kind of more you kind of feel that you. He shows you how he feels exactly exactly totally that you see these bits of a wedge. They've been happy being in here comes the wedge. Well let me just put this in another perspective for you. I think that a car is a very interesting interesting thing throughout this film. You know he has trouble with a car right when she is driving. He has trouble when Christopher Watkins driving. He has trouble when he's driving in l a he has a lot of trouble. It doesn't give over to anything and maybe I'm reading way way too into it. But the idea of just like he will not lean into anything anything that is modern that he's not necessarily like he's uncomfortable. He's always uncomfortable every time he's in the car he's uncomfortable right isn't he. Needs his feet on the ground he needs. Yeah on his own terms. Yeah I think I mean look I'm now I'm realizing there was this thing with Tony Roberts. And he's driving. He seems fine but But he was upset because he's looking at how terrible L. A. is at Christmas time which is sentiment. I absolutely agree with me in the holiday spirit and the women Max like like the women in Playboy magazine only they can move their arms and legs. This is really Beverly Hills. Texas really consistent. Isn't it French next to Spanish. Banish tutor next the Japanese. Clean out here. 'cause they don't throw their garbage away making television shows all come on Max gives us a break. When it's Christmas Christmas? He knows snowing. It was snowing really gray in New York. Kidding Santa Claus sunstroke thanks. There's no crime. There's no mugging is no economic crime. No but this ritual religious cult murders and there's wheat germ killers out here. Why they're out here? Maximum TV show. I love this. And you know our engineer Devon Brought up a great point that this is reminiscent Avila Story. And how Steve Martin took this L. A. Chunk here and kind of blew it out in and I think his love letter to L. A.. which you know which is the opposite of this? which is a love letter to New York hearing Tony Roberts there? I think this is a great segue to get into our conversation with Tony Roberts who in this film plays. Woody Allen's a good friend and confidante he's worked with Woody Allen numerous times he's appeared in twenty three Broadway shows twenty five films three television series and is recorded over fifty fifty audiobooks and voiceover commercials. Please welcome Tony Robbins. Let's start by talking about you meeting what he Alan Elaine. Let's talk about doing play it again. Sam Right actually. I met him before played again. Sam in his first Broadway play which was called. Don't drink the water and that was a hit And ran for over a year. I believe that was the first time that David Merrick The biggest producer on Broadway began to produce Woody Allen. Plays and I was in a Broadway play at the time having replaced. Robert Redford in barefoot in the park which was a huge hit and I was in that for eighteen months and David Merrick wanted me to play the lead in Woody Allen's I play play. Don't drink the water and what. He wasn't convinced that I was the right Guy We have never met and he came to see me in that barefoot in the park about four times I think and we'd never spoken to each other. I kept going in and auditioning for this part in and don't and don't drink the water night. I kept not getting it. which is what happens to everybody when they're starting out in this business But eventually he came to see me. I'm baffled on the park. And he walked into my dressing room He was married to Louise Lasser at that time and she was with him and he said you're very good. How come you're so bad into auditions? Which of course anybody who's ever been an actor would understand? Yeah Titian is an audition. You know you know. Oh you don't know what they're looking for. You know what they want and you don't. You haven't had any help but to figure out what you should be doing. So it's really like shooting an Arrow in the air but Having seen my performance he said now. I'm convinced that you would be good in my place. So you've got the part and that was the beginning of our friendship. I was about twenty four twenty five years old at the time and he was very shy. Of course he's still is very shy so we didn't really Form a a close friendship until we're like five years later when I played a dear friend of his in played again Sam on Broadway and he was in that as well L. so we had a chance to really get to know each other. Well wanted to ask you about you. Know The shooting style of Annie Hall a lot of scenes play out in in essentially like a one or the cameras kind of locked off and it reminded me of the way that you would do a live show Broadway show did you. Did you like that style of being able I to have that freedom of letting the scene really play out well I I liked having job to be honest with you. I didn't have a lot of films before before that to compare style shooting and all of that sort of thing. I think the the movie I'd done at that point was I don't know why well before any hole I had done Serpico and I had done at Disney picture called million dollar duck but You know you do what you're told by the director and cinematographer cinematographer and the last thing you really find yourself thinking about is g. It would be better if they did this in one take or if they didn't do close ships or over the shoulders and I would prefer them to do it all in one grand shot. You know you can take those ideas and to put them in your pocket because no one wants to hear that. And that's not your job. If you're the actor I was reading a bunch about the film in there was a four hour. Cut in all these deleted scenes so I mean from doing the film and and getting to the finished product. How was that transition did you? Was it surprising to you to see the finished product. Absolutely no you know the actor has nothing to do with the transitions of anything. The actor is is does his last shot the crew. Applauds you get into the car and you go home. And that's the last time you you see anybody until the screening of it if they are kind enough to give a screening for the cast and crew not everybody does that So that's the first first time you go and you see all these people who with for twelve hours a day over a three month period but we're talking maybe five months later after you've gone home from the last shot. I think maybe the thing. That's the most shocking is that But camera isn't always on on one's own face uh-huh cuts away to other people very well should be. But but but it's you know if you're an actor you disappointed when when it isn't your her face on the screen so it's it's always a surprise but if it's a good picture you you should get down on your knees and thank in-cabin because There were few of those and there are so many people who want Parcham. I'd love to hear some of those scenes that got cut. I love to learn more about him. I was reading in his article from the New York. Times from nineteen seventy seven and it opens with you shooting scene with woody where you guys are hanging out with the devil here so I think I vaguely remember that has being a shot where we get on a street elevator. One of those things that they have Sidewalks they opened them up to steel doors. Open up and then people walk downstairs in order to get into the basement of a building or to go we get into an elevator and it starts to descend dimmed and suddenly I think if I remember correctly there's a third person in the elevator and it's the devil so presumably. We're on our way to hell. Oh I think it got repurpose deconstructing Harry. If I'm right because I feel like he goes yes he goes to see the devil and then I think you're absolutely right absolutely right. He shot another another scene for Annie Hall. That was never used in the picture because When he suddenly finds himself in Madison Square Garden Right and then he loves? Woody loves basketball of course. And he's on the court and He's going to shoot a scene in the movie with Earl Monroe one one of his great nick idols and what. He told me that he had the ball in his hands. It was an empty Madison Square Garden. There was nobody there except zip the crew and he wanted more than anything he could describe the to try and shoot a basket from center court. And he's a pretty good athlete would he. And he said did he just couldn't do it and I said why. Why couldn't you do it? I mean nobody was watching. You had a few moments free. You could have shot from the Centre Court. He said it would have been too wonderful. Well I think with the original title of Annie Hall at one point was like Antonio which is like the idea that you can experience pleasure. It feels like that fits exactly into that zone. That's precisely as I remember it was called Antonia and it was about a guy who couldn't expect Experience pleasure according to woody as the picture Got Shot it was telling a story hadn't really intended. It was a love story that happened in front of your eyes as he and Diane fell in love during the shooting of this picture and it affected the way. Hey the script changed and the way these scenes were added or cut and he said to me he said I can't help it. He said that it's a love story. And if I cut away from A to a basketball scene Madison Square Garden. The audience will hate me. I can't take them off that that story that they want hell is. He has a direct. Obviously you have this kinship and you worked on Broadway and you've done multiple projects with them. How does he talk to you is it? Is it very blunt too or is it how does how does he direct. I would say it's on the quiet side and and very minimal Kazan once said that the most important thing with director can do is to cast the right actor in the pot and if he's done that he doesn't have to do anything else and I think that's partly why would he's yes Casting is usually pretty good and he doesn't have to do a lot of direction because the actor is bringing a lot with him. That's right for the role so As what he perceives it he used to have me and and and Diana some other actors come to his apartment one at a time and with the script and We would read the scenes that we had with him and he would say d feel comfortable with that line That that you have to say and I might say yes or I might say well not really because I don't know what it means or need say. Well how would you say it and I would say it. The way I would like to say it and he'd say well then say that way interesting he's say to me kind of taunting. Lee said say it anyway way you want and still get a laugh on it after you said it meaning being no matter what I did I'd still be the straight man. So you know. So he was he. He was challenged by a line. I might come up with because he would come up with something. Maybe it was funny. Work off of it. He's into any hall at in. Working with Gordon Willis list the DP as this turning point where as director. He feels like he now became an artist and it changed the way he made films afterwards and having made a lot of those films with him afterwards. Did you see that too. Did you see a chain. Well he's always been In My Estimate of a real genius. I mean I knew this this before I ever worked with more. Met Him or anything else. He was already a genius on the Comedy Circuit. I mean He. He was different than anybody else. In his associations you know all his connections to things were so bizarre that he was like a revolutionary mort Saul or somebody there was nobody like him subjects each chose to to talk about with so different and original it. so I wasn't surprised that he wanted to get get into deeper Subjects after his initial half dozen films which were all just purely comedic or or completely weekly satiric zilog is about as original as anything ever made since Chaplin and Keaton Buster. Not Diane. So it was. It wasn't all that surprising to me that that he walked into deeper territory. You know it's interesting because I think when you have a performer. Like Woody Allen You you think of him as A. We're seeing him as the person that he is. But obviously it's an amped up version of there are things that are from his real life. They're taking. There's no matter what the film and I heard that this whole scene where you're calling Maxwell's kind of based on something that happened in your relationship right Yes yes yes yes we. We were getting to know each other at the beginning of of the play on Broadway and we decided to meet one day for catch in Central Park Mark. So we we're GONNA meet at Seventy Second Street and Fifth Avenue so I was like five minutes later something like that and I saw him about a block away and I started to yell his name. I said where did he would he would he. I'm here I'm coming. I'm coming and when I finally arrived at where he was standing in his army field jacket and his is Baseball cap and other disguised. A Persona I said. I'm sorry I was late. He said that's okay as is it. But don't ever call me woody in public semi said why not and he said because people will then know that it's me and they'll turn around and you know they'll look at me and they'll you know. WanNa WanNa talk to me or get an autograph I said is it. Don't you think they know that it's you. Because you're standing on Fifth Avenue in the fanciest neighborhood in New York York City jacket and and you know dirty sneakers and you're standing here. Nobody else looks like that around here. Their own suits and ties Isan overcoats and everybody looks like they they've succeeded. I don't think that's might be why they know what you he said. That doesn't matter he's just don't call. Oh me woody in public. I said all right I said according to something else I'll call you Max. How's that he said fine? The next for the next two months of our friendship. I I cold Max that called a maximum phone. You know. That's where he was and all of a sudden one day my phone rang and I picked it up and it was his as boys but he said hello. Max which was puzzling for a moment and then I took my life pass before my eyes and I I said back to him. What is it Max? Since then we call each other to this day. It's only Max Max and he put that into the script of any well a story like that. I mean it makes me think of I mean not just in writing your own fringe of inside joke into the script but of that senior Elvis singer so uncomfortable to be recognized on the street and he says a lot that any haw is not autobiographical and not knowing him I see myself it seems so autobiographical like where do you see. Elvis singer being different from Woody Allen I. I can't say that I do I think that Ah every picture he's ever made is very autobiographical. He has other actors play him. You know what I mean. There's always a surrogate Alvie singer his character is always An intellectual an an and Someone who has spires to be An artist Whether it's you know To be a great writer or a great painter or musician or thinker or something like that is his respect for artists is unlimited so I think he's very revealing about him who he who he is in those products. You've heard so much everywhere and your character here really sticks up for. La How do you feel about La in the New York versus La Culture. Well I'm a New Yorker. I was born about five blocks from where I am. Now talking to you from My school little by Public School is around the corner. I was the first class to graduate this new building that they put up on eighty first street and Between Madison and Park Doc. Avenues I I I never put down roots in Hollywood I worked. There is an awful lot and and rented houses sometimes for four or five months at a stretch that you had a movie to make or a series that I was doing out there but my heart was always in New York. I have to say Love to walk and New York is the best city in the world to walk in and La is probably the worst city in the world to walk absolutely so Right off the bat. I I felt a little Out of my element out there but I had so many friends in so many relatives. who were there in? La that I I had a pretty good time while I was. He's out there As long as I knew I wasn't going to be out there forever. Well this has been fascinating talking to you. WanNa let people know that you have a book called. Do you know me which you can find. It's it's what I love about this book is. It is amazing recollections of your career like we've just heard here but also it's a little bit of some real good sage advice for actors and and how to kind of your experiences in the business. I I think that this is It's not necessarily how to book. But it's a I think it's a lot of great Really solid advice in there. Well bless your heart for saying so thank thank you thank you so much I I wrote that book over a ten year period of bits and scraps that I had had placed and didn't know what to do with and and finally I got the courage to try and write a book about it and I had to publish it myself So it's available on Amazon or anything like that Eh. They print it to to the order. So I think it might be up to seven dollars by this time but what I been thinking maybe writing another one which was less about my own personal stories and more about the craft of acting as I've come to think of it I may May. I may or may not do that. But your words very inspiring. You're a fantastic storyteller. An amazing actor and we were so happy to talk to you and and and Thank you so much. So here's the story about when I first moved to La. I was making almost no money because I was trying to break into being a critic and I lived in this awful walkup apartment that was in this rundown part of town. That just so happened to still have this classic Fancy Steak House a couple blocks away that has been there since the nineteen the fifties. When I was living in his apartment? I would walk by the Steak House all the time on the way to the subway and I would dream the day that I would be able to afford to walk in by myself steak and also alleged salad and also Martini and possibly to Martinez. But this restaurant was a special place to me and now when I wanNA celebrate something for myself or take my friends out to celebrate something awesome awesome that they just did. It is the very first place that I think of and in fact actually have a reservation on the calendar right now to celebrate my friends podcast season. And I've been looking for to this meal for three leaks anyways. I am telling you this because whether you are celebrating over a bottomless brunch or a hard to get dinner. As a nation you can get triple points on restaurants around the world with green from Amex triple points on restaurants around. The world with green from Amex to here is too many more toast to come learn more at American Express Dot com slash green from Amex annex terms of lying. He wasn't it amazing to talk to Tony Late. Let that was that was that was. I mean you've seen him perform farm I did. I actually saw him and met him. I was too nervous telling US backstage at Victor Victoria because I had a a very small connection into Julie Andrews and I got to go backstage and talk to her after the show and I got to meet him and I was so overwhelmed in thrilled to meet him. Because my connection to Tony Roberts via woody. The Allen was so much stronger than my connection Julie Andrews and I was just floored but what what a what a great guy yeah. It is funny how his character serves as like this angel. I figure I feel like in the movie. You know you devil or about yeah. He's he's both. He like nudges him in one way but then then he is a joke about sixteen year. Olds right yeah I mean look you know he's capturing an another part of you know the life that could be right like he surrounded himself by people like you know Woody Allen's character he doesn't want to go to L. A. Doesn't want to work on. TV doesn't want to give out awards doesn't want to do anything. And I think that that is so true woody Allen but looking at other people and seeing how they're happy I mean Tony Roberts is happy and having a healthy life and and it seems as we watch the movie his life getting less and less happy and and in in more small as we go forward. We everybody's leaving him behind literally. They're leaving him to go to California and you know he's really judgmental about about how. Tony uses that laugh track at his Sitcom that laughter doesn't count if unless it's earned which makes me think like him telling any your pleasure doesn't even count unless I feel like I earned it. He he has he just keeps setting up boundaries to make things harder for him to attain. I just have to say I would feel remiss if I didn't mention that Win Woody reality this film. He was dating to sixteen year olds. Oh I thought he was dating Diane Keaton during this film they had broken up actually a couple of years before they were executed along. When they stay friends of the XS He was aiding the two sixteen year olds name? Stacey when name Christina who would wind up inspiring Manhattan or both claiming that they partially inspired Manhattan baton and one of them in an energy gave a few years ago not recently said that after she dated him she wanted becoming a personal assistant to Jeffrey Epstein. And while Aamir really dropping bombs here just had to say and she also did say that. The only time she ever saw woody Allen reveal vulnerability was while they were dating. He got a phone call that he wasn't expecting from Diane. Keaton and I Keating called to say that this cat that they had adopted together had died and the his girlfriend at the time. The teenager wrote you. I looked at him and his hands and they were trembling and in that moment he wasn't even in the room. Don't you feel that that scenes in the film when she calls about the spider like I feel like He. His whole demeanor meaner drops when she calls like I feel like that's a great little seen any Russia's over there as if there was an emergency like that you know just a spider in the shower and not even that big obviously and he would not be the first person I'd call for that. When I think about this movie I feel such an intense connection to it but I also also recognize that it emirs a lot about my own life right and being a New Yorker and in being in this business and they often? I didn't think like does this movie. Connect for everyone or is this. Is this a coastal film. I don't know you get a sense. Since of how Woody Allen's films hit the Middle America. Well actually I wonder if like when you're just an American period you're so flooded with images of New York work in La that you're almost unofficial citizens of them to you know you you you know them so intimately like when you arrive in La for the first time you like. Oh Yeah I've been here right right you know and and the same thing with New York like this is what I have mapped this in my head and Alan Israel but these problems and what they're talking about going to see black and white films and and the literature that they're talking about it. It's it's very me. These are New Yorkers these are nineteen seventies New York problems. uh-huh right are are they clearly. This movie has affected culture. But we talked about this list. And we're going to talk about it for positive and negative. Is this movie lauded for. We're being great and everyone loves it or is it because this list is made by people in the seventies who this is on their playing field. This is what they know as much as they know. George Lucas gets and they want to support American graffiti. They WANNA support Woody Allen like the. I don't know if there's an answer for that. I certainly am not that removed. I would again for turn down questions to our listeners. I'd love to see what people's experiences are with Woody Allen. Do you feel that connection that. He is a part of my makeup as like as as a as a performer. As a writer. Like you WanNa live that life. I mean I guess what Harold. I'm seeing people dreamed about him. But that was in the seventies. Does that still bill. Does that retention still there. I mean I wonder because I don't feel the need in two thousand nineteen to say. We have to have a woody Allen film list. I don't feel that need anymore. Honestly Ashley this belongs in this list. But that that's I'm trying to Parse the different. This film belongs on the list. But I don't think Insert Woody Allen Film here has to be on the list. I I hear you saying man this film yes I love this film. I live for Diane Keaton. Thank you get robbed into Godfather movies. I love this Diane Keaton and I don't want to lose Sir and as for the relate ability I guess my maybe my to me at least in my own experience watching this and getting more now that I've had even more adult relationships ships and things hearing what popped out to me this time felt so different and it made it feel like such an even more mature film and I remembered it being that it wasn't just like adults play play acting drinking wine with ice cubes and talking about the grownups. Yeah well you know. I thought it would be interesting to hear Woody Allen thought about his appeal and this is from the late Seventies. He's talking talking about this is after any halls come out and you know. This movie is not a box office but it does do a critical hit critical cultural hit. So take a listen to Woody Allen talking about his limited appeal I have a nice loyal following. That sees all my films but it's not enormous. I mean I've never had a picture. That's you know anything close to. I don't know what to say the sting or or those kind of pictures you know have a nice sort of steady following that supports me and it's fine. I mean I I just assumed have limited appeal because that way I feel I can continue to try and do good work and not have to worry about the problem of of changing changing my work to include. Everybody and I love that that thought and you know again not to go back to the marvel and the Scorsese and everything but this idea of when you can have the freedom to have a filmmaker like this to release a film like this in the theater. I mean it was such a great treat to go see a woody Allen movie in the theater talk now. Barring the controversy. He had to go to Amazon right like you know. There's the he's getting you know. These filmmakers are getting shut down if they can't make these bigger things and I think there's a part of me that thinks I want. I want more marriage stories. I want all these movies that they don't have to hit on a big level and because you never know when one of these will kind of culturally impact us for years to come like you know what will be that that movie that little movie that becomes something that that that influences us for years and years I mean I want more marriage stories. I feel like I don't need more movies from woody himself. I think if there's anything that I've seen in his later films I think he is showing a lack of ability to empathize with other people in grow eight which I don't feel like I've seen any hall. Well this is a forty year old man who is self aware fair to question himself and I think time is forty years has gone on. I think as you become a questions. Yeah I mean I also think as an eighty year old. You're not you think you're just not asking why who's asking questions at that point. You don't need to. I mean maybe there are a handful but I don't know I don't know keep asking asking them but what I thought was funny was yeah we were talking about the Scorsese. NECE you're talking about the Francis Ford Coppola. When he went into the act? I found a quote from Woody Allen from nineteen eighty the two where he said this quote sequel. ISM has become an annoying thing. I don't think Francis Coppola should have done godfather three because godfather to was quite great and when they make a sequel. So it's just a thirst for more money and I don't like that idea and then you go shots fire. Everyone is firing all over the board. I mean you know amy. I think the thing that we are finding learning about this movie is that you remember the big moments even remember him pulling Marshall McLuhan out from behind a poster which by the way there were a couple a couple of Alz for that Marsh Mc Luna was one of the people he also maybe thinking about getting Federico Fellini or Lebron well to come out which I thought would have been interesting as well you think about that. You think about the animation scene you think about you know the big comedy moments but I think this movie. We're realizing is. I think the reason why exists in y kind of works is because of this deep emotional connection between these characters. Yeah I mean I mean to other name checking of like foreign directors. I thought it was really interesting that he decided not to have a score in this movie in less because because it was inspired by Bergman he was like Bergman. It doesn't use the score. I don't need a scores. He was imitating so much the great masters to make what people think of as his masterpiece that later on he was like you know what I can be my own person. I can add score back then. Then but yeah I I feel like I don't think Woody Allen today has grown up that much more than this character but I think I have grown up to this fill in it. That makes it really valuable to me like I was thinking in this watch. There's this one scene that I never realized was the pivotal in this entire movie. Be before in this time it jumped out at me because I've broken up with people for reasons like what happened in the house like this scene is why they break up. This scene is why they can't get back together. This is actually has is to leave him. And it's a little long but I wanNA play it anyway. If she has started singing she's now performs through the number and the Tuxedo jacket and record producer comes up to her and what he afterwards takes are you. Are you recording until you with any label near me. You know. I'd like to talk to you about that. Sometimes you get a chance at possibly working together. Hey that's that's nice Oh listen this is a Alvis in your. Ah I know you work big Fan of yours. Mrs Sean Shaaban for Trone. We're going back to the peer to peer. And we'RE GONNA meet. You can have a drink and if you'd like to come we'd love they have you and we can just sit and talk nothing not a big deal. It's just relax. Just be very mellow thing. Let's see human. We discussed that thing that we ring all the thing. Oh the thing I if it's inconvenient if you can't do now that's that's fine to do it another time. Maybe if you're on the coast we'll get together the gathering. Oh Wonderful Oh God we enjoyed it is to match yeah. What's what's matter what you WANNA go party? No I might be kind of fun. You know what I mean. It'd be nice to meet Awesome New People. I'm just not. I don't think I could take a mellow week because I don't respond well to Mellow Tennessee to if I get too mellow I I ripen and then rot what you know and it's it's all right so you don't want to go the party. So what do you want to do. But he's up brutal only makes them see the sorrow and the pity again and I really. This was paying attention to how a person comes up and wants to help her career. Who wants her to become an artist in her own right he rules says is she does her best to Fulham into the conversation? Give him an ego stroke. And here's a moment where she could do something new with her life. That's not about him in he absolutely sabotages. It absolutely won't let her grow and she has to leave him at the idea. We were saying before like he's holding her hostage to a certain degree like he you so she is a piece of his life that he has put there but he's not you know he doesn't want to share it and he doesn't want to grow. It just wants to be the way he wants on a shelf shelf exactly and I respect that scene for being in here Ito that scene take some honest he could have pulled. The parties are lame. I hate parties. But she does but he is is aware of what he's doing but it's interesting because you know he takes her to see Sarah pity which is a kind of a runner throughout the film and then at the end of the film he kinda. It feels victorious because she goes to see sorrow and the pity which again knowing he's an unreliable narrator who knows but you know maybe they never got got back together because we already know that he already fudges the ending but You know it never changed. So he he he still wants that victory like Oh yeah I did. I did change for the better like in his mind. He did change it for God. He's probably dragging sigourney lever to this hour on the pity. Oh absolutely I mean. Feel like who. What's playing sorrow and the pity that much I mean it's it's always playing in In this version of New York amy. We're talking about this movie now. Works on so many levels. And how Woody Allen's kind of this beloved Guy You I. I can't imagine people not liking this movie when it comes out do you. Do you have anything Allen. This mean rare. Yeah right and I am a true and saying that it's rare to find a Negative reviews feud with this one. I was like Whoa. Whoa all right? You're ready for this. Yes you might need to be holding on into something. This review is from John Simon in New York magazine and he writes with Annie Hall. Woody Allen has truly under reached himself. His new film is painful In three separate ways as an unfunny comedy poor moviemaking and embarrassing self revelation is everything we never wanted to know about what he's sex life and we're afraid he would tell tell us anyway and now he does he calls anyhow if film quote so shapeless sprawling repetitious and aimless as seem to beg for oblivion and at this it is successful full. He says that the jokes are predictable. He gets some of the key plot points around here he says it's Annie Hall in bed during the day of casing. It's a breaking. He says Allen Drags a whole gallery of the most unappetizing showbiz personalities of our time. Carol Kane Paul Simon. Christopher walken listed as unappetizing personalities are most uh-huh and then and then here's wickets bad and then there is Diane Keaton's scandalous performance. Her work if that is the word for it consists assists blithering neurotic coming apart at the seams and acting style that is really nervous breakdown in slow motion. He says her performance is bad taste to watch in an indecency decency to display and he concludes that in the film. The fake entity in the scene or a scene played by a rubber. Mary Paris that she should have played any capable of. She appears here's to be of keeping her head above a stagnant pond. Wow so interesting I mean because he basically calls that everything and says the opposite of what we all love about this movie. Yeah when I heard this review I was like this critic see. I don't like to segue allies. Good I hate it when I get cycle. Tell you everything but this could exceed to be awkward about people being vulnerable seems to be. I WANNA movie where everybody's like we're great we're swell. Hello so here's a funny joke and he's so put off by how naked this movie can be in. Its emotions that he's like discussing can't watch it. Well it's sort of like Woody Allen. Go make your movies like like bananas again. That big slapstick silly. And you know and that I think is always the trap with a lot of filmmakers especially comedians. When you WANNA make a transition you get judged against what the expectation is of you like well? Why isn't it like that? It should be like that. And especially when you're woody Allen and you're in the face of it you you know that's why I think Jim Carrey does something that you know when he was at the height of his career and decimate weird cable guy which is one of my favorite comedies or or something very dramatic people are no no like they're judging you based on past performance and not on you. You can't separate yourself in a while. Many people did allow allows separate himself. It's guys having a hard time letting go and it's from New York magazine. That must have really. Just that reminds me of the hurt that Woody Allen Elon. Musk gotten like spike Lee. Got When The New York Times Held him responsible for do the right thing everywhere so bad. I almost wanted to ask Tony Roberts and then I check it out. I wanted to talk glow about this movie's legacy and there is somebody who doesn't really loved this movie that I think it's important to hear from. And that person is woody Allen and unle this whole quote in question and the answer so take a listen re contemporary comedy director is still trying to make any hall except for the Guy who actually made it. Who thinks the film is overrated? You don't you don't dislike any hall but are you. Are You a little bit bewildered. Why that film has has still so much sentimental appeal to people thirty years later and they still make a big deal about it and talk to people? I mean you know for some reason that films very likable. I've made better films than that You know take match point. Appointed a better film Purple Purple rose of Cairo is a better film. The French one midnight in Paris is a better film. Vicky Cristina bus alone is as good You know I mean I've made himself were he's GonNa but for some reason that got some terrorist manic inexplicable. Hold on people that in Manhattan too All over the world old Manhattan plays all the time it's got some. You know nothing that I did. I mean it it. Sure cheers chance in ninety nine mate them and I make them and through sheer surprise to me ones that I think a perfectly Africa delightful. Nobody's interested in and another one that I think is. It's fine alter interested in what I hear. I don't I don't WanNa be on any that would be as a member. That's exactly what I think too and I thought it was really interesting. Like this idea of Antonia not being able to experience pleasure. Is your joy like I think. There's a great quote that he said in another interview when I was researching this what do you like to do. And he was like oh I like to do anything thing that I'm not doing in the moment that I'm doing it like if I'm writing on like acting if I'm acting I like writing you know and I think that that is this this thing that always like chases you read rather there'd be doing something else and and you know. Look I believe Woody Allen as a GRANDPA one of those bumper stickers. That's like I'd rather be golfing thing. And it's crossed out making a movie. Movie crossed out complaining about what I would change based on what he was doing. Yes but I do believe that. That's not woody Alan being humble. I believe that Woody Allen being exactly the character that we know in this film Railing Against Society Society says anti halls gated. I don't think it's that great. That's it's so par for the course of the character that we know in meat. I don't think he getting there's other actors like Oh thank you. I know it's not you know. Well it's it's the people's film. Whatever he's not doing that I think he legitimately has bought into this belief that that's how the movie that's that's how he feels about it and yet it over and over again he says this is not an autobiography? The only thing that's autobiographical is. I've always been obsessed with sex. And that's it. Amy Is Very Simpsons. The Simpsons that I have pulled is from an episode called. Love is a mini splintered thing. I WANNA play a clip from the beginning and the end because it's all framed framed as this is Bart Simpson's any all picture if you will Bart Simpson with hair with glasses with a tweed jacket with a plaid shirt. As he gives his Molin. Everything I know about. Women can be summed up by a jump rope. Rhyme girls go to Mars to buy candy. Bars boys go to Jupiter to get more stupider except I didn't have to go to Jupiter to get stupider. I had a bigger ball of gas. I could study so this tragic romance with a girl named Mary and at the end of the episode he delivers this. And that's when I learned cupid was just a fat naked jerk with an Arrow but surely didn't give up on love after. Just one set Zac back. Love is our only defense against the abyss in this meaningless universe. Love what is it what does it mean. How do you spell it? No one knows. Fortunately there is a cure. Any video game ever made remember. This game is for age fourteen or under. If you're older than that please get help and Lisa Simpson with a bowler hat and tyne invest sadly walks off. I also like that he does clears throat which Woody Allen does upwards of twelve times in this movie so amy I guess the question comes in. We've kind of danced around at numerous times here. Does this movie born on the list. Definitively asking that question yeah Yeah and yeah I mean. I know that we're getting into territory that we hunter wrestle with it. Chinatown to with Chinatown and the Roman Polanski round the coming on the side of you know what we've got better no ours we've got better. La Films we've got better all of these we've got more. Jack Nicholson performance. I could live if we didn't have this film on with any hall is really tough for me because we have this Diane Keaton. That's so amazing. We have this conic iconic. We have a film that I feel will really moves me today as much as didn't But it's still does it absolutely still does end such an. It's a little bit earlier. I don't need any more woody Allen. I'm I'm kind of done. I don't want to buy a ticket to Allen Film. I kind of want him just to stop. Yeah but it doesn't. I cannot not love this film and I don't want to take away. Hey the work that Diane Keaton did in this film you're right there's so many issues surrounding it and I don't WanNa get into the weeds with that because I think we did a good job at the beginning just talking about how we're going to be talking about this this this movie and I agree with you pretty much pretty much the same way. I just think it's you know I don't like the idea of throwing the baby out with the bathwater. You you know for these films that I think are important in their culturally important But it's something we're GonNa always have to wrestle with and you know maybe for me if anything anything makes me feel better that this all happens before these allegations against Woody Allen. This is a time before you know. Uh before this person becomes the person that you know is is part of the cultural conversation. Not for his work. This is about him being in love with the woman who's appropriate for him Tom then until he was making this movie we look next week. We are going to get into a heavyweight film on this list. Martin Scorsese's raging bull and so it got me thinking you know raging bull is the story of real life boxer. Jake Lamotta I want you to put your your own raging animal movie about real. I figure like if you were going to do say raging turtle the movie about Mitch McConnell ruining the planet so give us a call with your reaching for whatever animal you wanted to be an who that film will be based on. Give us your best pitch your best elevator pitch and give us a call at seven four seven six six six five eight to four seven four seven six five eight two four UH.

"On this episode we discuss Book Club. The chilling tale of four people getting together in the same space less than six feet apart. Who'll hey everyone? Welcome to the Flop House. I'm Dan McCoy. I'm Stuart Wellington and I'm Elliot Kaelin and Dan. I hate to be to fall into my stereotype as Jewish one. But why is this show different from all other shows? Well for one thing. We're all more than six feet apart. Meaning that we're all their respective apartments. Yes the covert nineteen colloquially named as the corona virus has a sitter scattered to the winds Normally it was just Elliott scattered them. That's pretty much my reaction to it. Yeah well we are doing our best to try to keep up with what the government tell us to do We're setting an example for the young people out there by keeping distance from each other so as to not create become disease vectors Dannon Stewart or feeling a little under the weather. And I'm I'm I've just dealing with an overdose of California Sunshine. You know there's just too much too much bright sun that I can only escape by staying in my house twenty three hours a day. It only occasionally venturing outside to peer into the light like a mole man or a vampire that cut tricked into escaping his coffin. Too early so this episode might be a little strange because we're all in three different locations but podcast is ever done this before right now in the history of podcasting and my and my levels are all crazy so this might be the weirdest sounding Stewart ever here. Hopefully it's extra loud. I haven't the easiest of all three of us because I'm not as sick as Stewart nor do I have to. Shoulder have the easiest of most people in the country. No I know we weren't. I was comparing to Youtube. Was Okay okay. Let's get into how privileged I am Which is but all right. Don't rub it in Dan. Dan is recognizing his privileged in a very positive way. Well I mean what am I supposed to just caught my lucky stars? I Guess Yeah you're Purple Moon. Green clovers too. So this is a weird way. So so Dan what we do on this podcast for anyone who's who's stuck in home looking for entertainment and they stumbled on on the picture of US and they're like well. I like chicken legs and beer and remote controls all check out. What do what do we do on this? Podcast this podcast where we watch a bad movie and we talk about it now. You were very interested we. We had a short vogue for theme months. And you're GonNa do what you call mom you area where we palms let me. Mommy was was for me. I want to do with the month of because let's face it we're DUDES WE WATCH A. Lotta Dude movies which a Lotta not to not to Gender stereotype there but we watch a lot of traditionally dude movies harm movies action movies. SCI FI action. Har- HORROR SCI FI action. Fantasy horror horror. Fantasy SCI FI. Action and action horror SCI FI fantasy action and we don't there's a whole world of movies out there we don't really touch upon usually that. I would call generically movies. My mom watches and so I was so I wanted to see book club and Palms and it would double as also. What is going on with Diane Keaton? These days month because Diane Keaton who is I don't. I don't think I'm going to have any opposition on this national treasure and one of the most charismatic actresses in probably the history motion pictures delightful instantly likable. Where can wear the hell out of a high collar and a hat? Oh she hurt her style. I mean there's a reason that the anti hall look took off like a wildfire this movie where They're a spoiler alert. Diane Keaton is on a large inflatable swan and a pool and Audrey said why. Is She wearing a hat? I'm like because she's Diane Keaton. Also it's nighttime huge. There's a part where her her girlfriends are. Trying to help redress for date and and Jane Fonda is like open up your collar. Show off the girls a little. And she's wearing like a turtleneck underneath the shirt. That's the way the girls are getting anywhere near being shown awesome. No but she looks great but so yeah no. She looks tremendous his. She's also a working actor and so for years now she's been doing movies like this or something's gotTa give where I'm like like Diane. Keaton like what happened to the Diane Keaton? Ribs you know or the Diane Keaton of The we allen movies that she made like. There's there's part of me the light Diane Keaton. You're better than this. This is going to double as Diane Keaton. You're better than this month but mostly it was movies that my mom watches and unfortunately. I don't know that we're GONNA get to palms Because there's so much else going on right now but he's GonNa skip right to a wild poems the TV show. We're part of the national conversation while inevitably inevitably when things start going south. Socially people start out the Oliver Stone television short-lived series of wild palm. I will say Elliott my. I know for fact that my parents saw club and their reaction was. You know like look. We know it's But you're you're elderly. Parents had a good time. Yes I mean this thing is this is. This is a comfort food movie. Maybe at this time In in American history we only little comfort food but a guys I wanted to talk about. We're this movie goes wrong because it is so much right wants number one. It brings together an amazing cast. This is Danke Jane Fonda Candice. Bergen Mary Steenburgen they're all great And also you got Don Johnson and Wallace Shawn and Richard Dreyfuss and Ed Begley. All-star older star cast and Alicia Silverstone in as far as I know unheralded performance in a supporting role but and so it gets so obviously gets that right by getting it. Are you saying like a little guy? Lawsuit didn't come out and like tell everybody the leash yourself shown was showing at the beginning of Frankenstein. A man comes out and he was watch out this movie. Maybe to a horrifying for you. I wish that he had gone out and said it may shock you to find that. Alicia Silverstone is in this film in a very small role will also. Are you saying that Andy Garcia and Craig t Nelson are chopped liver my friend. I'm saying that Dan I'm saying that there are so many stars in this movie that the heavens were dark and I can't even remember all of them. So there's a lot of stars in the movie to it taps into the national zeitgeist because it's all about the fifty shades of grey craze which was only seven years old when this movie came out and so the only way they could have fixed that as if the movie at the beginning there. Was this montage of things that happened in the year. Twenty eleven that they were just like that just to set the scene. But here's what this movie does wrong now. Just spoiler alert. I'm going to do a general thesis statement about the film and then we'll get into the the summary of it this. Mary is essentially a Sitcom episode that has been expanded to the length of a feature film and that Saddam is called golden girls and this is essentially a backdoor attempt. And I. I don't mean back in a sexual way. Even though this is a heavily fifty shades of grey movie because as we'll get into it totally just it just eliminates the promise of a of a sexually charged elder movie. But it's like if they made a golden girls movie and they forgot a very valuable ingredient. Because let's take a look at who the characters are in this one. Okay this is a story about a book club. That's been meeting frequent a meeting regularly since nineteen seventy four Receipts to prove it right. Yes because we're introduced to them with the most incredibly fake photoshop photo. I think I've ever seen in the history of film featuring young Jane Fonda Young Candice. Bergen Young Mary Steenburgen and young Danke. And we'll talk about their characters in a moment Jane Fonda. She's just WANNA say. There's a worse photoshop job to come. But which one is it? Is it the junior photo junior? Yes we're it was going to be a plot point that he was faking these vacation. I it looks. There's a part where later on candace. Bergen is looking at her ex-husband. They'd be juniors vacation photos and it looks like he and his fiancee went to the mall and stood in front of a green screen alleged. Carl and had like a fake fo- photo made so Jane Fonda She's Your Classic Lifelong Bachelorette refuses to settle DOWN LOVES TO HAVE SEX AND OWNS. A successful hotel. She's obviously the Rue mcclanahan in this scenario. She's she's the blanche she is very sexually active. Does NOT WANNA be tied down by a man and also has kinda similar hair to blanche. Then you've got Sharon that's Candice Bergen. She's a federal judge and she is very ultra proper. And she's very repressed. She hasn't even dated a man let alone had sex and she divorced. Her ex husband. Had Vaguely Junior. This is clearly the who she chose to divorce who she chose to divorce. Yeah this is clearly the Dorothy the author you know just kind of like the one who sneers that. Everybody else looks down on them. Here's where the problem gets in. You Got Mary. Steenburgen as Carol. Who's a chef who married Craig Nelson and kind of? She's just a kind of a lady who is upset that she and her husband to aren't intimate very often. And you've got Diane Keaton. Who is a woman with two grown daughters? Who are treating her as if she is more fragile than she is because of her age. You've got to rose's right here you got to Betty White's there is nary a Sofia to be found in the film. They're missing an Estelle Getty and this throws off the very perfect and very essential chemistry of the golden girls experiment where you had won the sex pot to the goof. Three the uptight one end for the sarcastic. Mom of the uptight one guys. This movie needs an older old woman. Even grumpy. Old Men had a grumpy Olbermann. In the form of Burgess Meredith. This movie you've got to you've got to roses and no. Sofia's and of the roses stinky and it's by far the better rose They don't give the roses as much comedic lead to do. As the Rosen golden girls. Golden Girls is also great. That's the difference. Sells the gold rose. Great and club is kind of like It's just kind of running through the motions. But let's explain okay so you've got the so you've got these for indelible kind of feel like they're a little bit closer to the the four women in the sex sex in the city or sex and the city series called the sexy city. It's called sex even sex and the city because there's an anchor sand isn't there you have it that stands for Awhi- sexy sexy the city sex in the city. Let's look at how sex and the city sex and the city guys sex in the city. It's an the city where Dan. Okay so how does it map on these characters onto the sex in the city characters? Let's see so there's Charlotte okay. She's like one of them okay. She's like candace Bergen. Because she's the uptight one and she's a lawyer and Canterbury and his federal judge there's Miranda okay she's like one of them is Miranda the Kim Cottrell Jane Fonda Kim Cottrell. There's court me Courtney you're thinking of the friends. That's Courtney Cox name. Yeah I mean it is moving Diane. Keaton is playing Diane which death. That was very funny. I discovered that it is sex and the city but there is no anchor sand. It's written out so I totally misremembered that I'm Sarah. I WANNA apologize to everyone for that for get tweeted that Dan. After soon that you've been watching a some kind of like bootleg ripoff called sex and the city they're very generic about what city it is because they don't WanNa get sued but it probably is Cincinnati I hear yet no no. It's Cleveland where it's hot Dan W Karppinen Cincinnati is yeah. It's very woke up in Cincinnati. Did there was somebody at the time. It was like look up and Cincinnati. What is this science fiction show room Typo and the old TV guy? I'M GONNA assume it's called woke up in Cincinnati and it's about somebody who fell asleep on a bus now they gotta get back. Well I guess I'll I don't need to watch the show because I'm not interested in that premise. And he missed out on one of the classic sitcoms of the Nineteen Seventies. And he's never going to get to see it because of the music rights at least not in a very cut up form. So yeah this is the show because they can't play those scenes that have the old music in them. Yeah so guys so you got these four characters their sex in the city golden girls and they each have their story the very much like a Sitcom they each have their story that they're going to go through but they're all friends and they still meet every week for Title Card Book Club now. I want to mention before we get into the plot that the soundtrack to this movie is bonkers. Like I think Austin powers more subtle soundtrack than this one like. If you just listen to the music you'd be like what kind of crazy cartoon hijinks are going on in this movie. The score you're more than this by Roxy Music. No no no. I'm not talking about the pop song soundtracks the because they also those are. There's a part of the end where they play a meatloaf song. Everybody acts as if it's the craziest thing they've ever heard like Okay so These these women when they get together. You better leave. They make lots of sex puns. Oh boy the innuendos are flying wild The of just speaking of they've just read the book wild and Jane Fonda did not like it. They mentioned that. The theme of this year's Book Club is bestsellers that were made into movies. Which is kind of a silly theme for club because they probably would have read. These books already But Jane Fonda like hey ladies. Here's the book read fifty shades of Grey. And they're like Mel. Come on come on and she goes. Hey started out. And Kim Spring says we started this to stimulate our minds and Giovanni goes. I hear it's quite stimulating. That's the level of dialogue. Great for me Stewart. The person watching the movie because I know those stories so I know what they're in for. Yeah that was. The funny thing was watching it. Having seen having seen all three movies straight PODCASTS. There were times where I'm like. So how are they going to deal with the part where he they think he's died? Helicopter crash is that something that they're going to bring up like. Are they going to bring up the whole subplot with the guy who wants revenge? They don't can I? Just I know that we've a puzzle up before getting into the plot but can I just say you got to make the rules. Look it's corona virus time. We make the rules. Things are crazy. Just say what you want. Say Do what you WANNA do. Stop A friend addams family. Well I just WANNA I wanNA talk about how linked this movie is to fifty shades of Grey. Because like all right. I don't want to deny at the time there were all these articles about. How like you know like Older women or women who like maybe sort of settled into a married life where like rediscovering like Sex or whatever because of fifty shades of grey or whatnot. Although I believe there was a run at the hardware store is on nylon rope because so many women were begging to be tied up. Well that's one of the things though like I feel like all those stories were more about. How like women who? Maybe were from an earlier generation where they didn't like talk so much about their needs Were like connecting with like. They could be honest about Kinky or not or inject new elements into their sex life which is not what this boras new elements like four hundred. This movie is much more like it's just like these women are like. Oh yes sex tape. That was one of the things I feel like. This movie makes a promise early on that we are going to see some older women getting invested in bpm play and that never happens. I'm like this movie promised me implicitly that I was GonNa see Diane Keaton in a leather mask and that never happened. I was buried disappointed. No never crop. It's this like when does this movie about you know? Yeah but also I think that it's I. I personally would have preferred that. The movie just make up like an erotic book bestseller rather than tying it so specifically to fifty shades of Grey because the movie feels like this giant commercial for a lot of things. There are things if it was like a commercial for but earplugs. Well do you think of this movie been made like twenty years earlier it would have been a movie club and they were watching basic instinct or something. Yes yes. They don't just read the first book they like. Throughout the course of the movie they read the entire fifty shades trilogy and like I mean maybe it's just because I've picked up fifty shades of grey and read some of it and know how horribly written it is but I would prefer they just like you know like good good on you. Go read some erotica if you want to but like God damn there's there's much better Roddick A to be had. They never make any jokes about the writing in the book which surprised me that. I wonder if it's because they don't want to alienate or life books. I don't know they don't want to alienate the people seeing this movie. Who were like? Oh I read those books. Those were good books that I really love them a lot. It reminds me of a there was a time. When Oprah's book club they pay one hundred years of solitude and then they were picking into some other book and I remember for some reason he was on at work like seeing a little of the episode. And she's like okay now. I know the last book was a little difficult for some people and women in the audience were nodding and I was like one Hundred Years. Old Is Beautiful Book like. I love it. I love that book and it's ended. I remember at the time being a well know at the time being a young callow jerk and being like. That's not a difficult book like it's a beautiful book and it had to be pointed out to me by someone else like not everybody is like a reader and I don't mean that in a condescending way not everybody is just going to pick up Gabriel Garcia Marquez. And be like. Oh Yeah I really get so for a lot of people that probably was a much more challenging than there used to and they might be the kind of people who when they read fifty shades of grey. They're not like oh. This is so horribly written they might be like at. This isn't the best written book but I'm enjoying it so like I wanna see it from the point of view of people who. Maybe don't have such snobbish standards as me right and I also want to say like we are aware that we are all Middle aged men and so approaching middle age speaking as a as such You know we can't necessarily speak to older women's desires and hearts no. I think we all come to this from a very from a place of like older women. Sex positivity no definitely okay so getting into the plot basically Diane Keaton. She's has to go visit her kids. They all live in La her. I think her kids live in Arizona. And she's going to go visit them and she has a meet cute on an airplane with Andy Garcia and flirting and then she accidentally grabs his. Dick for reasons. I couldn't quite understand he. Also Eddie Garcia a from seen one till the end of the seems drunk the whole accent that I couldn't quite pinpoint. I thought he might have been Greek. I'm not sure I I will say having watched this movie with Audrey. She was like showing the screen. She did not like Andy Garcia because she felt like he was a cocky guy who is constantly like sort of assuming that you. Diane Keaton could drop everything at the at any moment to like. Come see him in another city like there's a later point where he sort of ignores her fears. I mean in the interest of trying to push past them but like in a way that Audrey really didn't respond to and I I I get. I think he's being presented as like this romantic type. That may have been better in previous age. Where he's leaving he can. He can still drive himself at night. He's he's the most Christian grey like figuring this and that he is a millionaire. Who has nobody else? In his life and can indulge just whatever desires or fantasies he has and who also very early on has a sense of possession and ownership over Diane Keaton and this is not explored because he's just a fantasy figure of a rich handsome man who is available in shows interest in her. There's he has a certain amount of Charm because he's eighty Garcia but like he also. I think he's being presented as a figure that will push Diane Keaton past her neuroses but just from audience perspective watching it. She was like well. He's a little too controlling and thinks he knows better. I mean later he hits on her. She doesn't know he's a pilot and she's flying back home and a flight attendant calls for up and it's like oh I need some information from you. What's your name and your phone number. What's your address? And what nights are you free? And then the pilot eighty or see a walks out. And he's like I'll take it from here and the flight attendant. Has this look on her face. Like Eh glad I got to be part of this Luna Frank and that they really would have on their face was just like don't involve your in your stocking and then in alarm goes off in the cockpit and he refuses to answer it until Diane Keaton agrees to go on a date with him and it's supposed to be cute but it's like this is scary and if he's set off the alarm on purpose as like a part of the prank which. I ASSUME HE DID. It's like that's worse like he's he's a. He's playing mind games with her in in a movie. That was more keyed into fifty shades of grey. That would be like acknowledged as creepy said. It's supposed to be just cute here. You know one way. Meanwhile Mary steenburgen Craig t Nelson. Her husband has just not been showing interest in the bedroom. And we see her she. They go on their anniversary. Dinner and crazy Nelson gets her environmental gift. Two sets of earplugs so that she can watch. Tv shows while he's sleeping and his snoring. We'll keep him up. We'll keep her up and she gets him dance lessons because her annual charity dinner is coming up and it's going to be a talent show and she wants to dance. Neither of them are happy with the gifts. She starts reading the book. While watering a plan and we see the moisture meter on the plant go too high and it was like come on everybody. Look what are we doing here? Like what kind of Benny Hill level I mean? I expected him to cut to shot of like the Great British Baking. Show and have Mary Berry. Be like that's a soggy bottom. There's a lot of those types of funds to later on creating really gets into his old motorcycle and there's so many lines about like. Oh Yeah I got a Luba up so I can milder and I can climb on top of a rider all night and she looks at camera. Basically what about me like that? It's it's like sexy. Andy CAPP IS. I want to get on my motorcycle and squirt out Kiessling. Can't I just can't wait to insert my Dick into this motorcycle and pleasure it all night long. I found some of that funny Out Because the gag itself is funny but because like all of the women are in a room and they know the problem that the two of them have been having. So they're all kind of like reacting to it and sort of trying to stifle their reactions and this is going to be a running theme in the movie the materials bad but the actors are also good. They managed to sell a surprising amount of. I mean it's kind of like sex in the city that said he was so full of dengue pines by but like the performance in a good performers. You know there's a there's a line that our old boss at the daily show. Tim Carnevale used to do which was his version of sex and the city about old women it would be. Meanwhile on the other side of town estill was having some assisted living of her own. Kind of what this movie is. Is that line that joke in like a pumped into a whole movie. All the women they're reacting super cartoonish. Read it like they're Tech. Savory wolves their eyes are popping out of their heads. The turning into steam whistles and the soundtrack like I said the score is so cartoony in my notes. I wrote that it's like the whole movie is swing band in a car. Chase like that's what it sounds like. At Times Jane Fonda is old Bo- Arthur played by Don Johnson. He shows up and he just will not leave her alone and takes her out for ice cream. Talks about how his wife left him and they ended up waiting in fountain for a Lucky Penny because she made a bad wish on it. It's all so adorable. And a security officer on a segway comes by and takes a picture of them and there are a couple of security officer or cop moments movie and I just kept imagining. The auditions were Improv actor. After improv actor came into like audition for this role and they'd be like. Oh yeah yeah well we shoot it. You'll make it into a bigger role with Improv. And that doesn't happen. I will say bad regarding Johnson. I know that this is. I mean maybe swing. His name is a pun for peanuts. That's the other thing is like it's like. The movie is so full of Puns. That even the actor's name in the credits as a metaphor bleeds into reality in the mouth of madness that way. Maybe this is just turnabout is fair. Play because like a women so often get underwritten roles in this Sort of movie. But I could not tell you anything. About what the character Don Johnson was supposed to be other than he likes Jane Fonda. His personality was he wears a kind of a funny hat. He wears a funny hat. He used to be a radio. Dj and he likes Jane Fonda. And that is the and I don't know what he does for business now he had to find to La for business for maybe a radio convention but he also seems to be genuinely rich like everybody in the movie is now. I haven't watched all the special features on the Bloomberg Com. Assuming there was a scene. That's on the cutting room floor. Where Don Johnson's character is talking to Jane Fonda attorneys like? Oh you're in a book club. What are you reading right now? And she shows him and it like cuts to his eyeballs like a movie and his blood runs call because it makes them think that's his daughter in those movies. That's probably exactly. What do you think that a family that he was like? I'm making a fifty shades movie too and it's family stuff we can bond over this. That's a really good. Don Johnson. Impress me charts and we were GonNA part of this area so Donald Johnson. Yeah we'll make in one of these fifty shades just like you wear like daughter. Like Daddy. Yeah you Daddy. Fifty shades movie. And she's like. Please stop saying that. Call Me Daddy. More meanwhile candid camera. She's cyber stalking her ex husband. Who has his Kamerun? Sorry Kansas Birth. Been waiting for that. Fuck you you know what's going to happen and you got me candace Bergen She is cyber stalking corrects husband. And she finds these what we mentioned. Forward the worst photoshopped pictures. Maybe in the history of photoshop away. I think they're deliberately bad-looking because they're so silly they have to be like it literally was like a photo booth at a wedding like that's what it looks like. Now I want to object to this a scene because like all right so as a L. Also she gets caught by law clerks. She's doing this at work and anyway but Dan as a previously unattached man this Originally confused me a lot. This is before this before you were turned into a human centipede. Now that you're attached. I'm attached That I can still talk with my mouth sounded. Someone's but but I assume you're the front but I didn't realize either middle or you the back I'm talking into the but the person in front is saying what I'm saying with my voice like a kind of gratitude we pull the hair and make the guy moves sort of situation and I think that's the first time someone's compared human senator ready to shore I mean he doesn't even the middle or are you in the back. What I'm in the The second best position which is the middle now. I wonder if not at all not at all sir not back is the little bit of freedom and then you could just poop there you really into the air. But you've got intend April's poop there's bless poop maybe by the time no dad once. You're eating one person's poop you might as well throw the person's pimple on the plate I mean I don't I don't think we. I don't think there's any contests the front is the best because he words you have somebody in your ass all day long a second best because you can prove whenever you want and you get to eat someone's ass and the second episode so I I. I'm wondering if what if this movie came out a couple years earlier it was called movie club. And it's these four women who watch human centipede and they're like I guess this is what people are doing now. And they make themselves into human centipede reinvigorates their their lives more. What I wanted to say was there was a period when I was using dating apps so this bumble thing confused me for a long time because all right first off earlier she goes on bumble to find this stuff. We should it was. It wasn't clear that that fumble is dating APP for bees right. Could that's why you were dating so many B. is for a while I'm speaking earlier or clumsy people. Yeah let's fumble. That's our fumble. Is the dating APP for people? I'd see realm forty year old virgin who just keep having clumsy accidents that get in the way of their love life. Yeah so I. It was not grumble the dating APP for people with Brandy. Rooney's now Dan. You were saying bumble. Here's a here's a look behind the curtain. I like to talk until Dan irritated that. He just starts checking his phone when he picks up his phone. I know it's time to let him talk so Dan Yeah. It was confusing to me for a moment because it looked like she was doing this on her desktop. And I'm like okay. Well first off bubbles an APP so that's weird but then later on it becomes clear that she is using a tablet to do this but then secondly little red glad that plot hole got covered up with cement. The that's how my mom does most of her competing. Yeah so but secondly she learns that her husband is dating the much younger woman by the bumble things like like. Oh matched and I'm like what you can't see other people's matches on bumble but it turns out that I guess it's an ad for bumble. That's like Oh these. Two people matched you could to like suggest the question. Why is her husband showing up for her? In this ad I mean she was Google Liam right before but like he's not going to be a key word like advertisement for bowl. She has learned that her husband is dating because her son calls her to announce his engagement any mentioned that so she goes on bumble and his confronted with this ad and I have to assume that as in the song there's always something there to remind her bom Bom Bom Bom Bom and in this case it's that she's just have to ask existence where she's confronted at every moment with evidence of her ex-husband's life. I assume that as a judge she deals a lot of cases that are generally related. Her ex-husband which again is a conflict of interest. She should be recusing herself from those cases. But it's I think a movie logic Dan. We're like someone will turn on the radio and there's a news report about what's whatever's going on that's important to the plot so but you're right. This ad comes up that's like bumble health. This older man to get with a much younger woman isn't bumble right for you. But she gets caught by her clerk and she doesn't want to get involved. She doesn't want to dipper toe. In the radical revolutionary world of Internet. Dating which Al Al mentioned again is how I met my wife fifteen years ago but this is a scary for her. Is that candace? Bergen character is hungry. She needs a slice or something. I think she needs a slice of Dr Richard. I haven't I haven't thought about slicing applying pointing sixty nine year old George. We'll get to that. We'll get to that because she hasn't put herself out there yet but she has anyway. I don't want to spoil it for everybody. I know everybody's waiting for Jewish show. I mentioned Richard Drivers in the beginning. People were like who does rich Dreyfuss play Richard Dreyfuss I mean. He hasn't been on on movie screens that much for a while. I mean what was the last time for a lot of people still Max? Bickford or KIP endorphins. And he doesn't want a new character to to rip indoor Dorf. I'm sorry please remember my anthropology minor at school that it was croup. Indoor who discovered that tribe it turns out he has been working much more than you would have thought like. He's been in movies over the past few years but they just haven't been movies. That people have seen you played thanos employees dirks now that was so he was two different characters in avengers. Gi So it was a it. Was A dead ringers type scenario. I guess the last thing I think I remember seeing him in was that movie that we watched was what was when he was a lesser instead. What Piranha Three D no? He's not in that right. He's at the beginning. He gets eaten by Piranhas drives. I forgot about that but we did a movie for Flop House that he was in years ago but uh so Diane. Keaton is visiting her daughters again. They they're treating her. They're really bathing her. Mary steenburgen calls. This relationship is was the one that made my wife the most angry like the tween daughters. I N keep me to treat her like such a weird child the whole time. And it's like dude we're at fucking PUKE BEPPO man. Just let me take fucking phone. Call like she leaves. She leaves the restaurant to take his fucking phone call and both of them leave the table. And it's like you can't leave your fucking idiot husbands at Buca di Beppo all this shit we left. That's expensive over your children to be her. Children are horrible meddlers but Diane. Keaton also treats it like this. Is the sitcoms plot because for reasons that you know. Maybe if I'm you know maybe if I was in older mother of adult children I would think differently but I'm like why are you just talking to your children about what's going on in your life? You feel the need for the whole movie to hide. You're a damage as as the son of two parents who often don't tell me things about their personal lives that you'd think would be useful for me to know I can. I can speak to that. Which is part. But she's not just like not thinking about it. She's actively hiding it away like she makes up a lie to run off with this guy and then doesn't answer her phone as they get increasingly worried about her hanging. You've got to hide your level. Damn sorry yelled hey for that just for that but it was really route is like I dream of a day when like a Honky Drunk Arizonan Pilot X. Dad away it'll has just got to make sure he gets out there. Also your parents are still married. I believe you're she's chill is very cool new. Very cool mom. So steam version calls an emergency book club. This this is the part. I didn't believe she goes. I have to call an emergency book clubs so we can figure out if sex banking thing because this book has got me all turned inside out you have to fly back now and she crawls evidence lesson from their very stern dance teacher and he is not enjoying it So Candice Bergen. Meanwhile she goes to the vet with her cat. The doctor refers to it as a lethargic pussy and reliable. Yeah Yeah we get it okay She has an elderly cat and We already mentioned that. Andy Garcia hits on Diane Keaton playing her fears of flying and being a creepy stalker. Dude they have another book club scene. And didn't Diane. Keaton is like Only that's later on. Sorry I have to go into my notes here that we're twenty seven minutes into the movie and that was when Danielle quit watching when my wife walked away and said I can't take anymore. This movie hoping for them to spend more time talking about the books right Yo. I will say that the movie is one of the Times of the movie. Works better than others is when they're all together at Book Club because then you get to see these great actors like interacting I mean other than like there was some parts where like I was annoyed at the movies. Like script because it was just like let's reiterate exactly what's going on so the slowest members of the audience will understand. Exactly what's happening? But but the interplay was good and a lot of the scenes. Just feel like delivery systems for these women to walk from one well appointed snack spread to the next. I mean this is. This is in that very in that. Very Nancy. Meyer vein of like It's a certain sort of pornography about how beautiful kitchens and ease of having everything that you want at your fingertips at all times. I actually have a voice memo from Audrey about this book club that I feel like this is the time to play. So I'm going to just Pump up my volume on this and here we go now all right so that was the wine club. You said more of a wine club. I mean most clubs. It feels like to me are excuses to drink with your friends but like structured setting. I mean just a way to force you to get together with your friends regularly so you don't lose track of them right. It's not gonNA shitty gas. We've been tuned forever anyway. Now we're going to enter into what I call the dating sequence where everyone goes on dates. Diane Keaton goes on a date with her pilot tells him the story of her first kiss which also involves a man grab shoe and she's a teenager and the teacher grabbing her head and then planting a kiss on her which she calls very romantic but which felt like again like a story whereas like that's not an okay story. That's that sounds creepy to. She tells that story when they're out at dinner at a table. That is very far away from the edge of this outdoor seating area. I've been to outdoor restaurants. They kind of pack them in there so they can maximize space but no dice at this. What a movie camera equipment and stuff. Probably the others have goaded candice Bergen into online dating. She finally joined. She sets up a profile with a picture of her with a face mask on for some reason. Like one of those nighttime face masks for some reason. She can't figure out how to operate the APP so she takes an accidental picture L. VERSUS. They're just going to. I'm going to skip ahead a little bit. And just say that she goes on this. Let's well I'll just say very briefly mercy merchants. She tries to seduce creighton ellison with her old waitress uniform. She looks amazing and he is so much more interested in his motorcycle. He does not interested in it. They try to buy Candice. Bergen a sexy dress. She seems to be unable to put dresses on. She ran over her clothes. Which makes no sense to me like or maybe it's just a very elaborate kind of spanks undergarment that she's wearing that. Looks like a full suit of clothes under her dress. And and this is important for later. Jane Fonda Slips Mary Steenburgen in her hands not to not use gives her a Viagra pill to slip to her husband later because as she says. A lumberjack is happiest when he has would tangle with that. Is that true lumberjacks. If there's lumberjacks listening tell us your happiest when you have would because to me. It seems like that's your job. Maybe you like it. Maybe you don't but Right in that. I feel like if there's no would means no work you know. I assume I'm not necessarily at my happiest when I'm at work. Elliot very good point very good point in fact I would say you're at your unhappiest which would make it difficult if say someone was trying to supervise you and get you to do some work but I cutts so but let's skip ahead to where the date. This is a real slice of Dr. She's got Stewart. Why don't you set the scene for this? I know you're raring to talk about Richard Drivers's indelible conic persona as George Okay. So they're like in a restaurant and George George seems like a normal guy like he doesn't seem like you know he has Has a brooks brothers shirt on and yeah. It's a nice little date you know. They have a really pleasant first date. That for some reason it's written so that candace. Bergen character thinks this is a disaster at every moment. It's like they're both nervous. They get over it. They talk with ease and calm by the end of it. They kiss she kisses him and then they have sex in the back of her car and the lesson she gets from that is I. Do Not WanNa see this man effort again and I'm just GonNa date other people now which makes no sense to me. I don't know what happens there like I. I wonder if there will be cut from the. I have no idea the whole movie like whenever they went back to candace Bergen like. Why don't you dating Richard Dreyfuss Tell You why? Because she goes back home and she's got more messages in the first one we see is from. You guessed it Wally Shawn. Oh some man candy was. Somebody's not having dinner with Andre Tonight because he's taken as Bergen out for a day and it was the moment I saw Wallace John. I was like thank you movie. Yes this is exactly what I needed right. Now is to know that a little bit of this movie's budget went to paying Wallace Shawn's that he could write like the most scathing like unpleasant like wonderful. Play about how. Modern Society is built on the back of exploited workers and bloodshed. It makes me very happy. You know that Book Club has has contributed to that in some way by employing him die. Keaton she runs off from her family. She makes an excuse and says that her house was robbed and she has to leave but she doesn't fly home. She flies to her pilot's house and this way I realized that he's probably a millionaire because he has an enormous house and he takes her rioted some plain thing right the invented some kinda engine that has less drag or something. I don't know it's like a Tuscan villa. Yeah it's Nice I mean Tuscany. But it's the style it's an Arizona Villa and he takes her in a little prop plane and she's like no no no. I'm scared but she takes. He takes her in it. And this is when it's the most like fifty shades of grey movie because the whole scene is just just crane. Just just helicopter shots of Arizona Desert and then shots of them in the cockpit going like wow look at that. Whoa like and the whole point of the movie is over. Life is wonderful if you're rich and have your own plan and can fly around whenever you want so very fifty shades of grey in that particular and she says hey. My marriage actually died along. I forgot to mention. She's a widower Danke and her husband died last year. She was a winning justice right. This is a two correction show for me. This is Great Dan. You're on top of the world has been turned topsy. Turvy what if I can? I defend myself. Say That I was saying she's a widow could be could be no. Caesar right history okay. Abraham Lincoln lived and the dinosaurs still around trump. Didn't win all right. Let's go now guys in details. They never did rewrite history. Did they know occasional mysteries? Yeah let's say wasn't really a duck blur no. Was it like a hurricane though Berg specifically okay so she says I'm marriage died long before my husband did which is a cruel thing to say. Oh let's get back to candace Bergen because while waiting for her date with Wallace Shawn which I have to assume is like how many that's everybody's dream is to have a one on one time with Wallace Shawn. Where's it is a lovable guy you know and I think this movie missed a beat by not having a Alicia Silverstone interact with them in a clueless reunion. That would have been wonderful. Yeah that would have been great. While she's waiting for him. She runs into her ex husband and his much younger fiance because they live nearby. I the whole thing. I was so confused by her relationship with her family members. A son who she seems to have almost no relationship with doesn't show up in the movie until the very end. Well this show up. Looks like the guy from love on a leash when he manned. Yeah Awesome Dog. Also this scene. Bergen Candice Bergen seems to be learning for the first time that her ex and her son or having a joint engagement party. And I'm like okay even if you're not talking to your ex like you should this from your son. Probably that he's having an engagement party. I mean it seems like she has really cut herself off in a big way from her family her son calls and says he's getting engaged and she seems to be surprised even that he's in a relationship like it really feels like she is your dog during the day. Mom I love is on a leash now. I want to say that we thought that the much younger girlfriend was real scene stealer She had a really funny reaction in a later scene that I I WANNA highlight. But also the way she's just overly friendly to everyone and does like a little bent over hug as she's meeting them. It was pretty funny. I thought so you say this is Believe this is mercy. Monroe is her name and a lot of stuff but mostly you know one shots on TV. Yeah apparently coordinator Kapadia. She was in a movie that was a parody of movies that I've never heard of before but anyway so the Shia so walsh shows up and candice. Bergen was like this is weird while Sean Ed. Begley junior and Cheryl the fiancee's proceed to have a very pleasant normal conversation. There's nothing weird about it. No one is awkward even when Wall. Sean mentions that he is a DJ in addition to being a doctor. He has a great line where he's like. I'm Dr Dan you can just call me Dan. That's my name or something like that. It's he introduced himself as a doctor or doctor. Derrick he's like I'm Doctor Derrick. Well you can just call me Derek. Which is a funny me. But the everything seems to be going super pleasantly but was she decides is too embarrassing deactivate. My bumba count. Decided to whatever's going on downstairs. GotTa shut it down. I think the implication here is that Ed Begley Junior. Her ex husband shows up with this. Like hot young fiance and charms. Even better like every me. You don't have to sell me. Can't tell Candice Bergen that. She should be lucky to be with Wallace shot. She should be brilliant. Wallace Shawn Hilarious. What are the pillars of the New York theater community in the passion you now? That's wild orchid or wild orca to situation nine and a half weeks or something. Yeah she was ready to be real shades of gray thing and she suddenly be just be a creature of pure bure list. Okay Jane Fonda she has a date with Arthur. Don Johnson She manages to take a moment. To Debunk Popular Reading of a Robert Frost Poem. And then they fall asleep together with her tickling her arm and then listening to a full album. All the way through the fantasy is that they shared each other on the Robert Frost. Thing me early on. There's a like joke about how You know someone's Vagina is not getting attention. And they say they reference Cave of Forgotten Dreams. The hurts as like WHOA WEIRD LINE. It's a fairly obscure it's not. I mean Verner. Herzog's is much better now than it was but that's not one of his better known movies instant movie of his and this is the most widely pitched as you say. Sitcom comedy rats they should have. The reference should have been grizzly. Man Then is what you're saying. I mean are real grizzly man. I wish and that would lead to a hilarious waxing. Seen sure I wish they'd gone further with that. Then all I can think of is a scene. Where they're they've picked like a Kelvin. No book for the Bulk Lemon. They're like I'll tell you. My life has a non-existent night about it people China's an invisible city. I thought you were GONNA. If on a winter's night driver s I thought you were going to go with more hurts. They're going to be like little needs. Some six of you know what I mean. That's that's I could use a raffle God down here. Where's the MIC at the end of the world? Let's move on counters at my end of the world. Now I'm trying to think of it now I trying to think about the verner hurt South. They tell you even start out small. I'd take that right now. But okay so they she she leaves it and Daikin's kids call the police to track her down. They track her phone to the pilots house where she falls off the aforementioned inflatable swan into the pool. It's it's also charming as as I mentioned on it. The previous podcast. Andy Garcia falls in the pool and my first thought is. Oh no his phone. Mary steenburgen finally puts that Viagra Eighteen El-Shams beer and he is not happy about it as I wouldn't be also if my wife did that to me now. I don't like being drugged. They get pulled over on the way home and the lady cop makes him stand up and then she lets him go so that they can go have sex but they do not have sex instead you wake whereas like you'll have a good night and she goes into Mary Steenburgen and you have a good night on weeks Adam. You know. It's a good performance. I guess but they have an argument where which was kind of strangely real argument to me. It felt we're creating Nelson's like ever since I've retired. Kinda don't know who I am and I need to figure out who I am my relationship to my life and my own body and this is an you. Putting pressure on me is not helping. And then he walks away and bumps his dick into the wall and goes out there. Having a serious are even throughout the entire argument. You can see this huge chances. His pants which I am ashamed to be about. I did find that funny. The contrast between the two I I WANNA say like maybe we can rate the movies Story lines at the end but this was my personal favorite. The storyline the Mary Steenburgen. Craig t Nelson One because it felt like it had a certain amount of actual emotional honesty like I had an idea of who both of the characters Involved were supposed to be and what their feelings were You know am I like Mary. Steenburgen a lot. Anyway then you get a sense of what? He was back in downstairs. Yeah A lot. That's there's a reason. He's coached owner through fruits and Khakis I mean it's not to poltergeists too much but it's here what's incredible talk about Mr incredible. There you go okay great And that's the Craig t Nelson Bit that. T. stands for tent in his page Turner. That hooch on that is he. Maybe I don't remember. Is He. Action Jackson I mean he is now. Now that's jeopardy Jack Flash. Although again this Jack Flash is jumping. Okay Stuart. Dan both looking up. Craig t Nelson's credits on their phone. Yeah Craig. Nelson was in action Jackson. But Jackson was Carl weathers. Oh so bad guy in that too. I'm sorry stir that jets out to Craig Nelson. He did do the voice of a monster with a huge Boehner in Flesh Gordon. What so he's coming back to his coming back to his roots that was early in his career. Hold on let me double check that to make sure. I'm not Mr Memory Just Google Criti- Nelson Flesh Yeah Flesh Gordon. Eighteen as the monster. There's this kind of stop motion animation monster with the peanuts need as the voice of it so you know what he saw when they said Hey. Are you ashamed about doing this role he was like? I'm going back to my roots. And they said please no more Venus buttons so anyway but so. They're they're upset and she says okay. Fine you don't have to dance with me at the charity dinner and Don Keane says to sustain Andy Garcia. I have too many responsibilities with my kids. I can't be in a relationship with you and and Jane Fonda is like this is too much pressure. Me and Arthur. I can't believe I fell asleep next to a man I've had sex with lots of I've never slept next to one. I can't handle this and as mentioned candice. Bergen his like while John. Too Overpowering I. I'm I'm a beast when I'm around him I just can't control myself. I become an animal so I've got to stop doing this. So the book club. Everyone's at their act to needier. And I Keating says you know what I'm moving to Arizona not for the pilot but to be babied by my kids. This is going to be my last Book Club. And it's like Oh no you can't break the Book Club you've been meeting for forty some years ever since he first read fear of flying which is ironic because she does have a fear of flying. But that's not really what the book fear of flying I think like did she pick it up thinking like it was a self help thing they sit around and drink together and they kinda snipe at each other about their life problems and then they're you know what they say. We have to read book three. That's the only way we can get out of this. And they tried together and my note here says they all go forward with their lonely lives. Arthur he confronts Jane Fonda and he says Hey I love you and she just kind of brush off gives them the cold shoulder and Candice Bergen. She goes to her son slash husbands to different people. They're not the same person. This is not that kind of movie. Her SON AND PARTY THEIR ENGAGEMENT POOL PARTY AND AT ONE POINT. She gives a speech. And you're like are we about to hear. Give a speech about a character. We don't know it all and she gives us speech while standing next to a surfboard. That has this is art. Written on it was very confusing. I was meant to be an example of the kind of crazy things that this young woman is bringing into her ex husband's life. Yeah I kind of like the speech because I think it it has like you know four movie that is a Sitcom e it has like some General J- genuine Wisdom and heartfelt content and most speeches like this in movies. End Up being more about the person who's giving them than the people she supposed to be giving the speech about but in like a really obvious way and this play the thing I think it went down the line kind of nicely where it is like. Clearly this is influenced by like the lessons. She has learned over the movie but she is still making it about them rather than herself. Now let's give me the gist of the speech. I know she talks about. How love is the thing you have to create or something. What was it something that you know is given meaning only by the People? Who are meeting. It's like it takes bravery. I don't know I just remember. I don't remember it's I just remember my. He's thinking okay. I thought maybe he memento did. I don't know I was when I first saw her digging her glass to make a speech. I was like uh-huh I know what happens when someone in my family gets up to make an unannounced speech. This is going to be bad. It's time for the for the for the grievances to be aired but it was a nice speech all about love. The next afternoon Jane Fonda is depressed. She couldn't even get up and get dressed and the other book club. I guess they couldn't get her on her phone so they they're book clubs sense was tingling and they knew that their friend was in trouble they just show up and she is like I said no to Arthur and now I feel terrible. And they're like you have to go after him run to the airport. They go his latest leaving in an hour. Go get him. It's like she's never going to make it to the airport in an hour. That's crazy. He's already past the security gate and the like rush to the airport thing doesn't have the same weight it used to because like you can text them on the fucking while he's like on the plane you can facetime with a handsome security but like. I just didn't have the tech. This didn't have the tent stakes that the run to the airport seen in little Italy had which is saved quite a lot but then she owns a hotel. She can just fly the fucking New York and see him there. There's a couple of things I want to say about this scene number one. I feel like illuminates one of the big problems with the movie which is like it comes to life more when they're all together and they're together very rarely and this is one of the few times they're together not just for book club. They're like doing a thing which is supporting Jane Fonda number to help her get dressed in something sexy everything she owns sexy and then they put her in kind of like the kind of standard blue dress that would imagine a waitress in the seventies wearing in like Like Alice doesn't live here anymore. It's not that this is not the the most provocative thing that you could throw honor again. I want this to be about the erotic awakening of these four women. Disappointing me that it's not a Dan you saw. I also think that like so throughout the movie I feel like Jane Fonda Destroy Line gets shortchanged the most I kinda like yes and I'm also sort of threat. The movie baffled. Okay what is her deal. She keeps everyone keeps talking about how she's like afraid of commitment. But there's like it's just sort of spoken about and this is the first time I sort of get what's going on. Like she is pushing Don Johnson away because she is afraid she is too afraid of losing him again to even give it a chance particularly as an older woman who is scared that like he will lose interest and just run off with someone younger and Jane Fonda Is. You know a great actor and she like really sells. This and I have to admit guys I started crying at this point and I think it's because I think because like one thing that connects with me I don't know why is someone later in life. Sort of making an emotional breakthrough and She's opening yourself up to something scary and I was like I was crying kind of what you're doing right now by revealing this emotional honesty to us. I'm tearing up a little bit. There's there's another part that also made me cry. I think it was primed to cry because I was already crying from the scene. But I'll tell you when we get. Okay Wow dan I didn't. I had no idea it had such an emotional impact on you and I'm really happy that That you manage to get around to watching the movie this morning about it. I mean like I fall asleep during movies before so the so. I want to hear about the other thing. That's going to be crowded anyway. She she goes after him and she rushes to catch Arthur at the airport but fails to catch him there. Meanwhile at the talent show at the charity dinner and raised emerged. As like. I'm just GONNA dance without my husband. Wanted to my old little kid tap dance routines Red Red Robin but the wrong song starts playing. It's MEATLOAF's which is it. I will do anything for love for love and the guy backstage which is like the most comical ooh and everybody is everyone's like she's dancing to meatloaf and she's making it work and it's like this is crazy as it. What she's doing is insane and yet somehow she's she's made to do it. And then who shows up Craig t Nelson and I'm not sure if it was like that he put the wrong on purpose for this where he just managed. I think he rent. Does he ride his motorcycle into the room? Just magic you. Just imagine it that way because he runs with his motorcycle helmet on and eleven because it could have been. It could've been a Improv shorthand for yes. It could've been antipathy to the scene in rocky horror where meatloaf rides his motorcycle into the room. But they didn't I guess and this was the time I cried. Not because like it wasn't like I mean there's utterly predictable that he would show up for her big moment but they had done the work again like I feel like this is the most emotionally grounded. One that I'm like Like their reconnecting. That's nice. Yeah I mean but this is the kind of story that usually take about nine to ten minutes of a twenty two minute feature it was. It was pretty emotional for me. Because you know there's a great song plane had just made me think about how meatloaf is a climate change denier and appreciate enjoys music anymore. I mean you also have to ignore Nelson's political views. Yeah I remember. We used to play that clip on the daily show a lot when he was on Fox and he said I was on welfare. I was on food stamps. Nobody had offered me a hand out. It was like hold on a second life. The and they are so turned on that they rush home to have sex on his motorcycle. I mean they're rushing home on his motorcycle. I don't know where they had sex. Maybe cycle on the motorcycle because for Crazy. Nelson that'd be a threesome at that point. He loves them motorcycle. I guess so. Do you think she that era. We don't see the scene. But do you think maybe should I take it that he was lavishing so much attention on the motorcycle? And Not at her. What do you mean? We didn't see those all fucking we didn't know. What did you see? The book loved. I fell I fell asleep watching this and a crash came on the TV afterwards. Merged THEM IN MY MIND L. Fair Fair. And what channel is this. That was playing both movies. Too Damn was distance you reading a Penthouse magazine and fell asleep on a story painting. Dan was watching the cognitive dissonance channel. Or CDC Dan that's not the CDC. You're supposed to be getting your information for her. Jane Fonda. She goes back to hotel. Hey Guess who's there waiting for her? It's Arthur he didn't get on the plane. He needed her. They kiss and thank Keaton. She's with her daughters eating pizza in Arizona and I was like it's just the three of them eating pizza at a table and I couldn't help but think like the rest of their families like the grandma just showed up. Why are their kids and their husbands? Not There for dinner. It was strange to me the husbands are like I'm assuming out the yard drinking from a bowl and eating slop is that your married life is like what I like about. This is one of the daughters goes. Does anyone want a piece of Pizza? And my wife. Audibly groaned at the term piece of pizza and then Alicia Silverstone lifted up these slice of pizza and her hand goes. I already got one. That's all that's a little story in miniature. You know there's a set up in a resolution one. There's Pizza Acteal. The the question goes out there. Pizza Act three. I don't need pizza. Thank you but it's a theory. That is her daughters proving that they don't need they don't need their mom in their life because they can provide their own pieces of pizza. I mean that wasn't that wasn't really the I think the lesson was more that she doesn't need them to take care of her but she does it. Read to provide pieces of pizza hungry bird. Now how is this map onto a Dan Harmon story CIRCLE THEIR ZONE OF COMFORT? They have their mother with them. Then there's a problem pizza eventually. They they meet the goddess who I assume in this case is Diane Keaton. And by the end they are back where they started that zone of comfort but they've learned a lesson. Which is that Diane? Keaton needs to go live her own life she i. I don't remember what it is that causes her to finally snap. Maybe it's the busiest saying saying piece of pizza. But she goes. Hey stop taking care of me. I have my own life to live. And I'm not owning it and she drives. She shouldn't have driven all the way down herself. Radicalized someone because she's a because she's such an old person driver and she drives her u-haul over the pilots house and he's like what's this and she goes my overnight bag and it's like jkm's. I'm moving in I. I live here now squatter. This is just like this is less dislike the servants. I now live here. This is my house I take. I control it and candice. Bergen guess what she reactor online dating account and reconnects with George Richard Dreyfuss. Just like she swipes on him and they match them like wait. They matched before the fuck is going on why he might have changed enough since that date that they that they don't match anymore. No I mean I guess also has Like a run out over time but I don't think it's been a long enough time in the world of Book Club for that to happen. I mean at this point also you can assume that she just call him. They probably exchange things. Yeah but guys the next thing. Is You know what I mean. Don't explain it sir. Can you explain that in clear terms? Okay so imagine. Life is like a piece of pizza and life begins when one piece of pizza and Pepperoni empowering me. Okay I mean my mom always said life is like a box of chocolates. This is very confusing to me. A piece a piece of pepperonis Wichita single payer pizza Peru only a single piece of pizza. Yeah what's the next step of this? Podcast okay then. Pizza sauce is probably involved right. Credits is the next step. Then there's and then during the credits where there's there's this little scene we see the ladies recreating their old fake photo of how they're posed in a bar together and that's it there in the book still. I guess I thought for sure. They're going to be some loops but there are no blue there were no blue Keno. Why because there's such flawless professionals that they got every line right on the first take and so there. You have it for ladies. They read fifty shades of grey. There realize what's wrong with their lives and they take minimal steps to do the obvious to achieve success and satisfaction. Look won't you yeah okay? Well it seemed like they had a law. Now they do over here. That's the slogan on the first. They thought they had at all dot dot dot and now they do. I mean do you think. The tagline of this movie should've been joined the book club or the tagline was. The next chapter is always the best. Oh so it's the next chapter in their lives Let's cool categorically untrue. It's not always ex chapter. That is the best but sure. I'm Dan with a nihilistic view of Reading Hey right now this chapter is probably the best. The next I probably look at the next chapter could be the best but let's not making the assurances. Let's not writing. Checks are but cash here. Dan. Why is your but cashing your checks. Dan What I said. I said you needed to get someone to have power of attorney. Not Power of Butts Ernie. I think you misunderstood doesn't even sound alike anyway. Let's go onto final judgments? This is a good bad movie. A bad bad movie movie camera liked. I gotTa admit I kinda liked this movie like it is not. I mean it makes you cry twice Dan. I think he likes this movie. The movie here's my take on the movie. This movie works in spite of the script and direction that poll quote on the posters now. This movie works. Dan McCoy the best like it works entirely on the fact that this is. These are old pros. They're great lake. You love seeing them. Interact you love seeing them in a movie and it just proves that like there should be more movies featuring it should be more movies. It proves that there should be more movies featuring older characters featuring older actors specifically older women because like if this movie can squeak by and work on me in with bad material imagine the saint cast with good share hill. That's by take imagine if it was the best exotic marigold hotel you know. Yeah the Mediocre Dodig Dan. I'M GONNA I'M NOT GONNA go. Savar sits movie analyzed. Because I didn't like it but I will call it a good bad movie in that Europe throughout the movie. I just kept being like all right movie like I couldn't. The movie was so like exactly what I thought it would be it away that I found comforting. I guess but it also just every time watching. I was like there's a whole world of cinema out there and I'll call cinema that I don't see normally and that most of America sees and like it's good for me to recognize that but also pretty dumb movie I I could see watching and just groaning with people. It's not the kind of movie where you're GONNA BE MAKING SNIDE comments which we're gonNA grown at it. Could you say that in a more coastal I can't I'm Costa Leap. I watched I watched it in a condescending way. I mean I don't know if I'd say coastal because my mom who also lives on the coast. I think would love this movie but I guess it's more generational condescension. I will say this just looking at it right now. Looking at the ages of these women in the movie Mary Steenburgen. You can tell us. The is the youngest of them. Jane Fonda. I didn't realize corner. Wikipedia eighty two years old and she looks amazing in the mood. Everybody's talking about Jane. Fonda is amazing. Everyone at J. Lo at fifty Jane Fonda at eighty two is much more present. And she's like you'd never for a moment. Do I not buy that. She is a an incredibly like sexually active and attractive woman. And I think that's attic also been like she's also been like putting up with bullshit for so long. I both agree with you Elliott. And I'm glad for her and the we probably shouldn't spend much time talking about these women's looks Dan. I want to celebrate the beauty of these women. I'm just saying that beauty is ageless. Okay sure what do you have to say? So I'm going to say this. Is You know there's stuff going on in the world right now and the idea of watching a movie that has like basically no tension or drama or thrills. It's comforting right now. He was good to watch a movie where everything went wrong for these characters. They would be fine. Yeah it's not like the other movie. I was watching that. I've been watching spread out over the last couple of days. I saw the devil which is horrible. Violent L. Yeah that's A. That's a work movie. Yeah but it's still great but really good but it's yeah that's that's a that's a let's say polar opposite of the movie were so. I I I'll go as far as to say it's it doesn't necessarily fall under the like good bad criteria but it isn't necessarily like I'm not mad at it so it's kind of inbetween good bad movie on fine with okay. We allow it. Says Judge Wellington? There's nothing quite like sailing in the com- international waters on my ship the s biopic. It's actually pronounced bio pic. No yet dangerous. Wyopreps says it's by OPEC because this was a word five biography picture all right. That is enough a Hoy. I'm Dave Holmes I'm the host of the rebooted. Podcast formerly known as international waters designed to resolve petty but persistent arguments like this. How by pitting two teams of opinionated comedians against each other with Trivia and Improv Games of course winner takes home the right to right? What podcast be this skull troubled waters where we disagree? Two Disagree Macho man to the of flying up. Oh the cover her. We've got a new chimp. Yonne here with Macho Man Randy savage after his big wind. Become the new champion. What are you GonNa do now match? Listen to the newest episode of the fights. Podcast will year. Tell us more about this podcast. It's the podcast. The power to sweet to be Sour Funky like a monkey woop discussions man and jokes about wrestlers fashion choices myself excluded. Wait to listen either. Can I find Saturdays on maximum fund? Get letters our next thing. Normally we would have some sponsors here. Originally this was going to be in sort of the Max Fund drive zone. So there's nothing scheduled but and I want but I do want to take this moment. I could talk for Awhile Again. About how attractive. I found all the women in the movie. I mean that's been kind of working so far right. Let's I do want to take this moment to say i. I think it will surprise no-one to know that the Toronto show has been cancelled as that entire film festival. We hope to be passed this pandemic as everyone does soon. We hope to be back out on the road entertaining folk ourselves. The big worry about this. This pandemic is not. When's the flop house going to get back on the road but it is something that we will do when the Times ready. Yeah but let's move on to let hers this first. One is from ally who writes howdy. Flappers I'm going to skip over this part where he tells us that we're great and go onto the question which probably doesn't feel that way anymore after listening to the episode. Anyway I'm a creep. He thinks Dan is rude to people who write in letters and still like still. Yeah but Eli Rights. I mean that's the way it goes away rights with the success of the purge. Tv Show what movie have you watched for the podcast that you would turn into a TV show? Hopefully it doesn't take two years for this email to be read. Aro. Ck In the USA. Eli You know you guys got US jabs in at the end even those or he got you know he was nice to us you. You described it but I didn't get to hear it about how did not worthy or some some nonsense. Yeah I feel like I've been watching. I watched a couple of series that are based on movies. I just watched the high fidelity series on who which is basically just like a slight Palette swap. And I don't I don't quite buy some of the choices like I don't really buy Zoe Kravitz. Is this unlucky in love jerk. Because she's one of those beautiful women in the world so that's weird but the and then I also watched the outsider on. Hbo and in both cases which I guess isn't based on a movie but feels like a horror movie just strung out into ten episodes and I feel like in both cases just took material that would normally make one movie and they're like how can we turn this into a ten episode series for good and bad like I mean You know like stretching things outlet you add a little more depth. And so what? I'm going to the way I'm going to answer. This question is looking back at our recent movies. I think they should make a TV show out. Potters Ville turned into a thirty minute along Sitcom now. Tell us a little bit about how they would do that. Is it a long running? Is it like a long running thing about bigfoot or is there a new adventure every every week I would say it's a thirty minute long? Sitcom it is the big thing stays there. That is a consistent running thing in the show. There's no arc. Each episode can be taken entirely separate from the other episode. Like you're trapped in this like this endless cycle of potters Ville Christmas always Christmas in every episode. Yeah Yeah Okay all right and I don't like about a series of thirty minute hallmark movies calendar but there's a little bit of twin peaks about it certainly a little bit of twin peaks about Serey For some reason picked up a a series of thirty minute hallmark movies and thought that was the thing that I wanted information about. I guess it's on. Yeah I say I know every they just WanNa about Barnesville. So it's it takes place. I don't I assume like my Shannon's stores central set of course and now is he is continuing on from the movies. He now in a relationship with Judy. Greer or is he still married to Christina Hendricks. It's I mean it's going to start all the way at the beginning L. So he's he's going to begin married in some episodes. He'll be married to Christina Hendricks in other associates. Going to be dating Judy greer. And you don't know how we got from point eight that's fair you can't tell if you're like somebody just took the episodes and like shuffled car now. Stewart. Why is you know? There's no path like some places where there's like. There's a character of the broken arm in one episode and then in a completely different episode. He breaks his arm. But it doesn't track with the marriage plotlines. What is happening so this is so traditional. Sitcom if I if I can interject a traditional Sitcom there's an assumption that the episodes take place in some sequence one after the other even something like the simpsons there's either slow development over time or it's just well this is another day. What you're suggesting is a radical new reinvention. The sitcoms were takes place in an alternate reality from a previous episode where it's the same character situation. But they're in a slightly different place and because their existing in a parallel dimension there is no sequencing continuity. It's almost like each element in the in the story whether it's physical like set decoration items or people's lives those all run completely different trajectories at any given time so you don't know what point in. Potter's Villier at ten minutes of each episode is more just getting your bearings like what's going on in. Potter's villain this. I twenty five minutes. You're like what is the first twenty five of the thirty. You're trying not to vomit because your mind is just. You're trying too hard. So you're saying it's less about like alternate realities. More like potted. Villes come unstuck in time but individual helmets of it. Maybe like differently unstuck in time exactly. You're perfectly your problem. I just resonated. I don't quite understand the creative choice. Making the the he is a radical reinvention. The normal purpose of a Sitcom is reassurance. It's slight education which has led to Catharsis of return to the norm but suggesting instead a sitcom that aims for the opposite objective re unsettles the viewer and introduced leaves them teetering on the brink of madness as they try to just though experienced squares the past experiences. Yeah Yeah I mean. Luckily a pitch worked pretty well. When I yelled at Michael Shannon. We are crossing each other on the street. My neighborhood the other complex idea to get across just yelling to Michael Shannon as you're crossing past each other Surrey Bothers. Ville but crazy yup gave me a thumbs up. I mean participle. The movie is already a little crazy. So you probably thought you said Potter's villages crazy and not. I don't think that's him green-lighting the series though that I think he might just be indulging What are you a fan? I don't know it seemed like the behavior of an executive producer credit. Okay The president of HBO. Max was walking with Michael Shannon at the time and also give you a nod right. Hbo Max is that the HBO. That's like a little bit too hot for comic books. Now it's what it's maximum the maximum. Hbo But I think this is a great idea. Dan What are you GONNA do? Let's show I won't talk at length because nothing can top that I was just like this is a bit of a cheap because this is a movie like that we based on you know. There's a movie that we enjoy and we did as a special episode but you know a tango and cash. Tv show. I would love to get the original stars back as An aging tango and cash just adventures every week. Not Not to reveal too much. This is something that a former podcast. Guest Brennan Hey and I have talked about before and in looked into and the rights to that movie are so mixed up that allow that where it was but it was something that we were genuinely thinking about. Developing and pitching was the tape cash. Tv show. And I'll just say I would make a TV show to book love. They already did it. It's called Golden Girls Boom. We're there all right. Well there's one more I was considering maybe a TV. Show of Valerian and the city of a thousand planets but that was Kinda just turn into Babylon five right. Yeah yeah probably so there's One more letter. It has no question but delightful anecdotes. It's from David last name withheld and Wright late so is it. We'll just hear it. We'll we'll see it's not your brother. It's not my brother okay. Okay David it is David Company. You guessed it okay. David Company is Rights Wall Mr Payback. It's ironic because on Red Choudhury's people were writing to David Duchovny. Now he's writing to us. Yeah wait right until I'm starting the letter to Wa- Mr pay-back has come up several times before on your show. I didn't realize until the discussion on your virata episode that none of you had actually seen it. I've not only seen Mr Payback in theaters. I've seen Mr Payback please. Mr Payback is my father. Call Me John. Payback have not only seen it in theaters. I've seen every branch of the interactive movie in the theater and I did it by ruining the film for everybody He explains I was working at a place. Where one of the theaters had to be converted to an all. Mr Payback Cinema. The large the large controller armrest and the new digital projector meant that the theater could not be used for anything else and we had to keep screening half hour longer film for six weeks even though there was hardly anyone ever in it We had anyone in the theater. Not Hardly any in the movie because the movie it's it featured Christopher Lloyd. Add and lots of people were in the movie. And of course billy warlock as Mr Payback. Yeah we had an employee screening before it opens. We all knew it was doomed right from the start but the bad movie. Fan got the idea of trying to watch all the paths so for the first week I would slip into the theater with the five or so patrons walk Janet and just go along with them then. I made a discovery. The voting mechanism did not work properly rather than letting each seat vote wants. Mr Payback counted each time. The button was pressed as vote. Once I discovered this I began stuffing the ballot box in all of the Mr Payback screenings. So I can see the bits of the movie I hadn't watched yet. People would be sitting alone in that theater and I'd come in the back and voted dozen times on the part. I wanted to see. I wonder how many of those people left thinking that the Mr pay-back voting was as rigged as Mr Sardonicus twenty five years later. The only thing I remember about Mr Payback as a movie was at the biggest celebrity that he get for it was frank. Gorton keep on flopping David last name withheld Francorchamps are pretty big star right for us. Maybe oh that's charming tale of cruelty towards others. I just really love that. The theatre had to make such an investment in Mr back like that was an all in risk and if it had paid off they'd be look like geniuses. Pay Back if it was going to be the future of cinema. Elliot's was going to be the future of sin. So have you guys ever seen an interactive movie that you really liked like that worked for you because I feel like every now and then they try it like they had that Black Mirror episode and I feel like when I see a movie? I don't WanNa have to make choices. I WANNA be like in the world the filmmakers creating and I want to see where they take me but maybe you guys feel differently like having a sense of control over the narrative. I feel like Video Games. Have taken over that space right. And I'm point a game player so I wouldn't know you and described herself as Gameboy. I would not okay but then you were so into Gamer Gate. At the time. He said that ethics and journalism was really important right. Slander ME EVERY EPISODE. Dan. I've been such a creep in this episode. I just got to make someone else. The bad guy. Yeah that was a great story. Thank you Dave for writing in. Let us move along to the last segment where we recommend movies that we watched recently or not so recently that you should you know why not check them out? Maybe maybe your self isolating and you got to fill the hours who knows. I'll go first so I will admit that this may be a very specific reason. I liked this movie I club. Yeah no I had taken part of an edible to deal with the exile of our current world and it kicked in Dan. You mean a piece of inedible. Oh Yeah Yeah. Remember the peace thing. Dan Give peace a chance. A piece of pizza that is working on. Its stolen my now bit. So the edible kicked in right when I happened across the very beginning of Tommy on television and I'd never watched Tommy and Oh boy you know if you happen to be in that situation. Where you're both mildly stoned and D- just want something that will wash over you and you don't have to think about that much. Tommy will fit the bill because it is a crazy rock opera by the WHO about a kid with psychosomatic deaf blindness who becomes a pinball wizard as we all know and becomes kind of a messianic figure. Is this the movie with Chris Farley? And David exactly me boy. Oh this is the one with Oliver Reed who cannot sing an and Margaret who can and it is directed by Ken. Russell been master of crazy excess and bad taste and it explodes all over the screen and I will say I don't know whether the A it was just like a weird airing on the channel. I was watching. The vocals were mixed so low in the explosive who soundtrack that you know they might might as well not have been singing so I turned on the closed captions. That may be something you need to do. But it's just a sensory overload so if you're in the mood for that it's crazy and Weird and fun and Tommy Tommy Boy. Yeah that's GonNa leave a mark anyway. I'm going to recommend a movie starring one. Elijah Wood called. Come to daddy movie about a young. Dj WHO IS DJ? Sorry I thought Your Damn. Why are you real time fact correcting recommendation? Sorry go I'm I apologize. So he's and he wants to reconnect with his biological father who he has never had a relationship with wait. Wait wait now Dan can you? Can you verify that for me? Yes sorry I can't verify this. Thank you and of course. This reunion does not go exactly as he had hoped. And it's a weird thriller that starts strange and then spirals into weirder and darker places than you'd expect and it turns into a real showcase for a lot of fun character actors. It's fun in gross and funny checkout come today yeah it was kind of like. I feel like it has like the it's a Canadian New Zealand co production and it has. It's got that crazy. Sorry I shouldn't see his criticism of the guy who did the greasy strangler made it. Okay Yeah it's it's got that weird vibe It's like a much stranger goofy version of like Jeremy saw Sonia a thriller. I feel like yeah I can see that. Sorry Elliot what were you GonNa say nothing? I have my recommendation if you ready if you're done you're done providing the Pinocchio for Stewart's first nations God the frustrations coming out right at the end of the. I'm going to recommend to movies. One of them might be a little on the nose and the other one is more of a comfort food movie so movie that I saw recently that I liked more than I thought I would but which may not be the right one for movie right for people right now is a movie called the world. The flesh and the devil this movie from Nineteen fifty-nine starring Harry Belafonte and anger Stevens and welfare about a a It's an end the world movie where Harry Belafonte for. Awhile thinks he is the last person left on earth. There is There's the use of atomic poison. That's wiped out most of humanity and the strange thing about this movie. We never see anybody's. They seem to have all disappeared and a lot of his Harry. Belafonte trying to make his way thinking he's the only person there and then finding a woman alive in New York and trying to figure out how to kind of like shake off the like limits. He feels from where his place was in the previous society. In the thing that I found really interesting this movie that they don't play with as much as they would have liked is the idea that he doesn't necessarily want to return to the way life was before because for a black man in America in the nineteen fifties. It might be better for him to now be on his own and self sufficient and in control of his surroundings rather than part of this institutional culture in which he can never have everything he wants always going to be kind of a second classes and so they do a little bit with that in that it found really fascinating and eventually turns into kind of like a weird love triangle that is not super successful. But if you don't want to watch a movie about most of the people in the world dying which I understand is not the thing you WanNa Watch right now. I would also recommend one of my favorites. The music man. We recently got a record player and hooked it up in our house and we got my wife's parents old record collection and my son has been crazy about the soundtrack to the music man. And we've been listening to it a lot lately then just reminds me what a like for me feel good movie. That movie is I love the Song Senate. It's really bright and colorful the dancing great. The performers are really great. And I just really love it so if you want something that just GonNa make you feel good. I'll recommend the music man if you want something that is going to tap into your anxieties than perhaps the world the flesh and the devil. There's some line line readings that Robert Preston gives in that that I find so funny like he just knows what he's doing the only thing I will say about the music man is. There's one song in it. You can probably guess which song it is that I do not like. It's ship Poopie. The the song is basically about like if a girl is not interested in you. Just keep pressing your case and eventually a winner over and I don't like that song I both don't like it as a song. I think it's gross but otherwise I like the rest of the movie a lot. Well guys I think this was fun. It's nice to see Dan and see how nice to see people out in the world. I mean you know. I've been sick for a couple of days and I just thought like if I'm GonNa go well you know. I want to be on mass jokes about book club. You Yeah Yeah Yeah I think It's nice that we can still use modern technology to interact with each other and I had a lot of fun talking with you guys about book club and I Apologize.

I posted this thing on my instagram story. I had ordered low. You're telling the story now. I'm talking to you know we we're okay. Sorry a backpack. Rexburg keep going off. I ordered levin cookies to my apartment. Living are cookies are substantial. It's heavy cookie. They're unbelievable so a friend of mine.

Who started cnn. So just while we're here signing daddy's miss you and then candice bergen and then mary whatever stepbrothers mom and they're these four women who've had a book club for forty years and i just it's rarely. They're in their sixties. Maybe even seventy s. So i just you know i love that. I love seeing like a glimpse into my future. And like i love stories about women and women just living their lives and they really at once one is married but like her sex life is like on the rocks one is widowed divorced and one is never been married so they really cover it all and they just have had this book club for forty years and they start reading fifty shades of grey and just kind of like what happens there of like on the dating scene one of them gets on bumble. Diane keaton meets this guy like this hawkeye. It's just it's amazing. It's like sex in the city and their sixty seven. Seventy whatever of like dating and trying to get laid. And it's just. I feel like there's even a carry samantha. Miranda charlotte like. I don't know just the parallel felt so great to me. I laughed out loud a lot. I cried at one part. But like i found myself laughing out loud a lot like jane fonda. She's just so spicy. It's really well written. And i found myself like loving every second of it. I was sad when it was over and it just great. I love to see. I want to see more like this. Why we talked about sex in the city like the hopefully. It's kind of the same vibe. And they're in their fifties so book club like obsessed with it and now you guys know. I am diane keaton stand. I'll check it out. So we are going to get into the carriage portion. We're going to read your listener submissions. But before we do that. And i i will tell my story. I want to tell it to nieves. Because it's not but i want to hear if you've been cashed because i don't think i know this. Nothing like super crazy like traditional. I think they see a couple of times. I really got. The guy was way shorter. Which i think like happens in this one time. It happened like i was really bombed. I've been talking to him. I thought he was just going to be bigger like he played played sports in college and he was just like so small. And i'd like. I'd already taken shot before. I went down to meet him. And so i went with it. We ended up lake spirit because he had pretty good phase but we hung out the whole night. I got wasted and brought him home and like us out of sex toy on the first night. Like i mean we never stop calling me like it was just like i didn't care because like i'm not i'm not i'm done with this guy and then the small settle hands like whatever but then i. I've been hat fished isn't the term i learnt. I was today years old so had fished which you know no shade. Two bald men raina prefers them. Yeah and i'm not saying. I do like a guy with a full head of hair. I don't really like guys dean so i'm kind of like you know. Take it offer. Don't we don't want a comb over dinner in between her and then when they have issue so you'll see sometimes on dating profiles crop the top of their head or they'll only be wearing hats on dating apps. It's really obvious whose hat fishing. And then i like had been hanging out this guy. He lives up. We met when we were walking our dogs and we started going on walks and we were doing outside stuff and then with the first time we went to a restaurant we walked in. He took off his hat. And i was always fully bald guy also virginity. Catfish me where that guy was all over. That was the guy that was the borne virgin but like he had been like rubbing dick between my butt cheeks. I rubbed his dick between about cheeks. Came on my back and then two days later told me he was a boarding virgin. I cannot so. I got captured by twice. And then which ones. And then the other thing i think This was not too long ago. Someone sent me a full blown profile of someone using all of my picks remember this but she said she was twenty seven so i was like flattered. I found that anybody's doing that. Because don't do that to me is that you could pay better. I was flattered. Go off our big ladder to somebody chose me chose anybody who chose me and i will say i feel like i got. We talked about before like humor comedy. Catfish where someone's like really funny on taxed or like within the dating app and then they're not in person and the best predate banter i've had in so long was michael jackson voice so that was like a bomber because we had such great banter and he showed up and it wasn't just that he had michael jackson voice. It was that he was just really not that funny. I think he was shy but like he was not who. He was overtaxed. So i feel like who's writing those tax. I feel like i'm having an opposite situation with this guy right now. I'm kind of talking to like is in comedy and he's funny in comedy and in real life he's not funny and i'm like what. Where's the disconnect yearly everything. he says. it's almost funny. It's like when you're like it's like trying to land a sneeze. I just. I don't know i feel like what's going on out there.

And then we'll give you guys advice and tips and things like that with me. Yeah and then. These are just kind of all across the board. I mean there's there is one. That's pretty standard. Close to like what you would have seen on the show catfish and the other ones are just of stuff that made us laugh. That was like in the same vein. So i'm gonna start with this one. I told rain and not to read this one so she. This is going to be a nice surprise for her. Okay at the beginning of the pandemic. I was talking to a guy in hinge and we joked about how are quarantine romance would never be able to exist in the real world because of lockdown. We texted every day and talked on the phone for hours. I love the show catfish and joked about how we hadn't facetime before when he said his camera was broken. I was pretty confident. He was messing with me and was not a catholic but when i tried to facetime him. He ignored the call. I tried again the next day and again he didn't answer. I started to question if he was if he really was catfish me and decided to try. Call in one last time this artifice up three times. We have friends that. To my surprise he picked up was naked in the shower. He was just waiting vertical and when he was in i was speechless. And so flustered. talk about a weird way to meet someone. I told him. It seemed like he was busy and should let him go so i hung up after laughing uncontrollably. I later on. He's screenshot my reaction which was hilarious. First photo for our quarantine relationship. I don't even if they continued to date. I am so where are they now. Know she thought she was being catfish. And he finally picked up on the fourth facetime and he was butt naked in the shower waiting for a call him when he was naked. He was just like i. Gotcha bitch i got to know. If there's together. God damn how did she cooks. You know so funny. We wait okay. I lied. I went back into the email. She did. Give us an update their second paragraph that. I had originally thought okay. They dated for four months through quarantine but never got to do normal life together because of covid after anything's with him a friend told me. Listen to your episode your man. Who's not your man and it was a game changer. Quarantine relationship that. I discovered gee-gee. Oh my gosh your podcast is truly got me through some rough corny moments. Her catfish story letter to us. Love the says i to me too. That's beautiful after the naked shower phone answering. They met up. They didn't meet up in mounds like they did. Yeah i mean. I don't think they were just like virtual the whole time in four months like they must add up. At some point i feel like fishing thrived during quarantine dream for catfish. Can't meet up the pandemic. i know. I feel like you really had. Its moment moment in twenty twenty. Okay okay. this made me laugh so hard. All right almost ten years ago. Back when chat rooms where thing before smartphones. I met this dude from the uk on chat roulette. I no. I do not know what that is. My friend are trying it out when it first was created before it was overrun by old saggy. Dick's guy camden was so hot. And played in a beatles cover band nineteen super dumb jobs just chatting with complete stranger across the world cool i really connected with him and we exchanged skype info and phone number as we continue to talk until one day. He asked me to come to seattle for the christmas holiday because he would be in the states staying with his family. I live on the east coast and was again a child. I ended up flying across the country in one thousand nine years old spent ten days floating through seattle with a hop british guy and his band. I stayed at a nice hotel so much food and had the best sex for ten days straight. I felt like i was on another planet. I was like vibing my life away. Five five in my life away came to an end. And i was like so sad. I was in love. This guy was literally to start to life with him in the uk aloe. I didn't even have a degree at bench where you're gonna go since pays my face. Were really the only way to stop people then. I found his band facebook page. When i got home and found out they were completely american fully. Just lived in bellingham which is a suburb outside of seattle. I met his family and hung out this dude for over week. Never once noticed. He was baking and accent. How did he set this up to his friends. Hey guys pretending to be british for this girl. I'm flying out here soon. So need you to just play along with it. I'm talking during sex a fool on british freak morning. Coffee sweet Oh my god never once. Did he break character. Pretty sure this is fully a con artists. Message message camping. Like what the fuck. Who are you in response. I never ever forget it. And then she put close just a bit of fun calm down. That was his response. God all in all. I got an all expense paid trip to seattle with amazing and adventures and a british version of this ha- pacific northwest at the nineteen. Truly my win his loss. Stacey vowed there never know when. Someone's literally not at all. They say they are. Okay the craziest part that he did it in front of friends and family well listen. Is he hilaria baldwin. Okay yeah or maybe. He had like a tragic car accident. He just told people like changed my fake accents. Maybe he just loves british culture and that's his true and he grew up or getting but we have heard this story this year already. This is crazy. also i. We're gonna talk about this today. Like how do you confront someone you find this out. I'm i'm just like i'm so bad it right. She said i'm who the fuck are. You said calm down. Yeah gas lighting extraordinary. People that are willing to do this though are also willing to an extent to make you feel like you're saying hundred present gasoline and goes with it. Okay this one is. This is a this is a catfish ana catfish catfish okay. She says the short version. My roommate used me to catfish her boyfriend who was pretending to catfish for his friend. I cannot less. i know. I can't read it seven times. Yes i was like. We need more to this. Thank god she was like the full story about two years ago. My roommate moved to south. Carolina started dating a guy. She met through bumble. They talked decide to meet up and eventually started dating two months into officially dating. She happened to see a tender notification. Come up on his phone. She confronted him and he stated he was only still using his account to quote unquote. Help out his buddy because quote unquote his buddy. Thought his girl was cheating on him. So this guy was like trying to catfish for his friend. He stated he had been doing it for the past few weeks and she had nothing to worry about. She immediately asked him to stop. Delete the accounts and he agreed a few weeks go by and she sees another notification instead of calling him out on it. She calls me and we decided to create a tender account with my pictures for her to see if she can catch him. She scrolls for about twenty minutes and finds his profile same as it was when she matched with him on tender she swipes right and immediately matches with my profile. They start to message and he asks to meet up that night she agrees and they set a time about an hour later. I've thought an hour later. She arrives the restaurant and her boyfriend sitting at the bar waiting for his date. Shit hit the fan to say the least and they ended up breaking up bank. Goodness i still have the receipts if you need them. This is incredible. I believe that it's true. One hundred percent. I totally believe this does happen all the time. Yeah i think the women i would. I would spend an entire week doing this. I would spend a lifetime during this. Yeah i'll do some crazy shit. That is so it took me a while to understand that email. I mean yeah and then when you really think the way she said it was so convoluted but it's just that he was like he lied about cap he wasn't actually catfish he's said he was cat fishing for his friend right but he was just trying to cheat on her on it timber. Okay stay woke ladies out there. Okay okay this is the last one and this one is a true. mtv catfish style story. Okay so just strap him first off thank you for being you and everything you do empower women and people. In general you asked for catfish stories. And i knew my time had come sitting on the. Here's like one day they'll do like music starts playing. It's time has offs. Can you picture like pounded out on the keys. Okay girl your time has come okay so when i was eighteen my mom and stepdad split up. I was devastated in a very vulnerable place and was naturally looking for love and all the wrong places i e facebook i had seen this guy named sebastian o.'neil interacting with a few other girls from my hometown and thought maybe i should shoot my shot. We talked everyday for weeks about everything we could think about. We totally clicked. He was so nice and loving and said all the right things. Eighteen year old self would want to hear. It became so intense that we decided to be in a facebook official relationship without even meeting each other. He told me lived in toronto which was about four and a half hours away from the small city. I lived in. He said he didn't drive so he was going to come visit me on the bus. I was so excited. I waited all day when i got the text. I'm outside. i rushed out my building door to find no one there. I feel my heart sinks like reading this like to feel that eighteen. Imagine to find so she found no one there. I texted seb. So she calls him stab this whole time sebastian to find out if he had got the address wrong no reply answer which i was expecting because he said his phone was broken. I didn't hear back from him for two weeks. This started a year long cycle of behavior. Like this i mean this is exactly the show. I mean it's not sam outside about it and you're like like she's going through some shit like it makes me so sad. There were many people that he'd been interacting with claiming they had met him one. Was this girl loretta. She and i became friends very quickly. And i often talk to her about my concerns of being real or not so. I'm assuming she just like saw people. He was talking to us on facebook and just kind of started messing with them. That's what happens on the show and the show right over the time of mine and subs relationship. Because they did like reconnect. He sent me many gifts a ring. A necklace many plaid shirts my fashion at the time. A bunch of letters including one that had one hundred fifty things that he loved about me. Start nursery. I read plunder. Okay four page letter okay. One hundred fifty days. He likes to expel page. Single spaced. typed letter everything that he loved about me and then he broke out. We six weeks later. You can relate okay so the pdf popped into my mind. Okay sure things about me. I started detest sub. Because i knew after wild at this person couldn't be real and i wanted to find out who he was. I told him for ages. I wanted ipad. And then i wanted to go to british columbia larisa invited me out to british columbia which i went and got a free trip then. Orissa bought me an ipad for my birthday. This is so crazy. I asked her so many times if she was sebastian to what she always said no to this day i don't believe her. It's been over ten years now since this happened. I never really got any legit answers. But i still think about this often and i wish that catfish was a show when this was happening because i would have written but it had been too long since. And there's no way to contact this sebastian. O.'neil anymore and orissa blocked me to anyway if you want to know anything else. I'm happy to answer any questions. You guys are my favorite. I mean that's insane. I'm curious does who she met this lowest person on the internet as well and then took a trip with her or that well buyer or that like they went to british columbia on this trashy met her and went on the trip. Yeah so like. I mean it just had to have been larisa rate. Oh my gosh. now. I'm just feel like i'm not going to be thinking about this all night. Because larussa was interacting with sebastian which she could have been running two accounts well the thing with all these catfish people i mean again. It is so hard to get away with this stuff today but yes earlier when it was just my space on facebook. These people would create like a thousand different identities. And we'll get into it. We'll give you the summary of how he started the show catfish but this is basically how it started is. There's he on the internet. And that person had created a ton of other fake identities that he was also interacting with. That was pretty combat. Yeah so i mean. Obviously that was it. I mean unless. Sebastian was real and hamill orissa. We're in cahoots. But like not seem doesn't seems odd so it sounds like it was this girl which a lot of times you saw that on the show where it was like a different sex what i mean like it was like a woman pretending to be a man or whatever. Okay well we're going to get into his to. We just run through other a couple of partners to interrupt. Oh that's a great idea. So the king himself actually great idea. Okay guys. i'm gonna tell you about pretty litter. And i am also. I have another announcement announced about when he looks. I'd like to announce that might here got another cat. I thought you were into a you. Got a cat know. My parents got another. They're up to four in the house. I'm scared to go there now. So it's so cute. They run around and it doesn't smell because they're using pretty litter and the cat is aimed bernie so the foreign house to outside total of six six cats and they are using pretty litter. And i was there not too long ago and i can vouch for how much it has changed because when i had been there when i was living with them like during the pandemic they weren't using pretty litter and like i said the cat litter always smelled. It was always all over the floor. So now they're using pretty litter. Which is the world's smartest cat litter and they are really loving it. And i am so on board with it too because i'm that house lot so it is the most advanced kitty litter in every way. It changes colors to help detect early signs of potential illness including urinary tract infections and kidney issues so this is so amazing for cat owners. Like i talked about this. You know. I recently lost a pet and who wouldn't want more health indicators for what's going on your cats body so cats are actually notorious for hiding illness. Keeping tabs near cats health can give you peace of mind. So that's a great thing about it. The cleanup is easy. It's ultra absorbent. Crystals trap odor instantly last up to a month and again it's it's like dust free so it just does. Its last like of the dust that comes out of it and gets on the floor and gets into your feet and not just like the worst part so it minimizes. The mass and the dust derives safely. You're in a small lightweight bag. Shipping is free. And you never have to worry about storing bulky containers so again we recommend this enough we talked about lindsay lindsay mbeki's at to like i'm just kind of converting everybody people are always messaging me like thank. You changed my like cap. Mom life like this is pet owner like one game when you find out about these things like this changes the game so we recommend to all you guys. We love it.

Catfish on mtv now. In its eighth season he's the host of a podcast by the same name and the star and runner up of the most recent season of dancing with the stars showman. A dancer nieves schulman. Yeah i know. I i i honestly i. I've always felt like a dancer. But now that i can sort of say that feels feels good. Are you dancing around. Like have you kept with it or you know. I regretfully no have not since the final finale. I should say I've been chiseling away at my wife. Hope in the hopes that maybe she'll go with me and and take some ballroom dance classes. Because i obviously it's fun dancing with a pro. Jen amazing but you know. I'm not really dancing with her. She's just dancing around me. And i'm just trying to not screw up so i'd love to actually dance with my wife so that we could dance together and i just think that would be super superfund sexy. Like who doesn't wanna. I wanna dance with. Somebody get sexy with after. I don't know. I feel like. I'm jealous if i partner went on dancing with the stars like it's just so into it. That definitely comes up. Asked jennifer like how people to respond to this and she said generally it's actually the husbands whose wives go on the show. Get the most jealous. Because like the their their wives are on the arms of this like now super suave dancing guy and he's like lifting in were spinning and doing all the things that every guy wishes they could do with cam and and then when they're like oh awaiting the results everybody's just like breathing heavy and they're looking to faulk like when i'm not saying you but like they're always so all over each other. I don't know why we're going to have this. This shell did. But i wasn't her partner right. I know that i'm not. I'm not on here to talk about that. Two separate that's a separate podcast. So let's talk about catfish yes does need our history with catfish is that we watch it. Exclusively and hotels all the time. Yeah like always great hotel show for sure. I'm i'm i'm you either you or detective. Stabler and benson from law and order. Svu are with me in every hotel room up to here that and actually my current apartment building. And i'm blanking on her name. One of the girls. Trying and order live swiss in my building. Oh gosh that's blonde. Stephanie bodies no. I think we'll be there she could figure out during this. We can see your view kinda so raina. Here's or somebody from catfish in the building. She's there i can't believe it's happening. I'm going to be in your lobby in an hour go. I'm so we want your your origin story. I was talking about catfish. How you started at how people are still doing it. How people could avoid getting cash but we asked our listeners what they want to know about getting catfish and they submitted some really funny. One liners just wanted to you. Want to read them. Yeah sure okay someone said oh my god have you guys. Seen the show catfish there are so many episodes of catfish. How do people not know they are getting catches. Bichat here. Not asking a facetime. Why do people use photos of other hot people to appear even hotter cash and my catfish. If i'm white hot on instagram than in real life asking for a friend if i thought he had a big dick and then it turns out he did not have a big dick get catfish. I have been getting mask fish. Oh mask fish by men. Since march which we've also talked about half its and then the last one is girl. All i know is i'm in love with nieves. Thank you for this. So what i try and remember an answer. All those questions out glass are with that but most people know your story. I mean i remember seeing the movie documentary and was interesting. I mean the the further we get now away from two thousand ten which is when the documentary came out fewer people. I think associate me with getting catfish versus me with the show plan and also younger people who weren't at the age of watch you know they didn't catfish when it came out And they've they've grown up with the show and and they don't know that i got that fish. Oh yeah i mean even people who come on the show oftentimes don't realize that i'm the host because i got catfish and made a documentary about it now. I'm doing help people similarly but anyway so long story short two thousand seven six two thousand seven i befriended a young girl in michigan was an aspiring artist. She had seen my ballet photography reached out through my space to say that she loved my my photos and could use them as the subject of her paintings. Which of course was so adorable and she actually looked really. Cute little watercolor paintings and so we started as correspond which then led to a friendship with the mom and their whole family and eventually flirtation with her older half sister with whom i began to develop this kind of crush should long distance thing And after months and months another correspondents in and trips plan but then didn't happen or cancelled or something came up one weekend. It was supposed to whatever eventually decided. Okay enough's enough. I gotta go meet this family and this girl who kind of might be my girlfriend if we actually meet so we went in discovered that the entire family was not at all they love to be and it was in fact quite the opposite and we made this documentary about it and that was catfish in came out in two thousand ten and then subsequently i got just inundated with stories and requests for help from people who similarly were in situations where they were talking some on the internet and that had never met and now all of a sudden it occurred to them that maybe this person wasn't. They said they were and so. That's what we've been doing now is helping people find out the truth since two thousand ten doesn't two thousand twelve i got on the show started. Yeah i think there's like so for such a fan of the show and as it's evolved. There's obviously been more avenues to figuring out who people are probably more avenues to hide your identity reaching out to people online so like has the show really change because you started to show it was like people credentials facebook identities at its. It's easy to sort of figure that out today. It's it's interesting because yes prevalence of social media users now in everyone's online versus you know even back in two thousand seven. When i first got catholics like everyone didn't have instagram or instagram happened yet but like people were still all getting online now. Everyone's but despite that and despite the other tools that are now available to you to potentially research and find out if someone is telling you the truth the way in which people fall into these relationships Tends to be very much the same as it was back. Then in in a weird way. I think people who are vulnerable to a stranger on the internet befriending them and engaging with them and eventually sort of falling for them are now. Let's changed in that in that regard it's sort of a mixture of loneliness insecurity in some cases isolation and any number of other things that make you excited when a stranger says. Hey what's up. Love that pick on the internet and then once you start engaging if you're looking for love or if you're if you're in need of affection or attention like it can happen and it doesn't. It doesn't require any fancy technology or or even advanced tactics. it's just basic communication consistently With a little hint of romance or flirtation and then you know it kind of runs away with special about the show. What you guys did is really. Try to help the cat fisher because obviously there's going on there and a lot of times they're younger people they're dealing with their shit too so it was nice to see those people like turn their lives around and away you hope but do you feel like yes. There's a profile of some of the does that Do you feel like it's sometimes people do this first bore and they just wanna fuck around and it's like they get off on it. I mean what do you think of the profile of someone. That's got fishing right. I mean you know it's interesting. 'cause they're definitely different categories. I mean and you know a lot of times. I'll get google alerts because article will come out about romance scams and they'll use the word catfish in the article in for us. And certainly for me. The intention of the relationship was never to extort money or gifts or any kind of financial gain. It was just for the human connection. And i think most of the episodes that we've made in the show are the same. It's about people who need to be seen to be heard. They need an outlet for for expressing themselves. They don't feel seen in their lives or their misunderstood or they can express their themselves fully in their community and they find someone on the internet who finally hears them and sees them and cares about them. And it's not about just messing around or fucking with someone or trying to get money for that. That does happen of course and and we didn't episode. I think last season where there was this guy who was pretending to be a hot girls because he knew that he could start. Only fans guys would send the money for pictures like he was like mrs just. It's just a great way to pick up. Cash and emmett i'm broke. I don't have a job anyway. So so there are people who do that for sure but i i really find that. There's an overwhelming population of people. Young and old. But certainly at least show young. You're could just want something in their life on a regular basis. That makes them feel good and having this friend having this mysterious sort exciting online lover. That's just for them. That doesn't know their friends and family and they can open up to talk too much. Like a therapist gives them a real sense of fulfillment and makes them feel important and and loved. And that's why these relationships happened a lot. Do you think bear. And i like. You're very pathetic. It sounds like to why people start these situations. Do you think that there's any forethought into like. How long can i truly like make this go on or do you think like a lot. I mean i guess it's a wide range. You tell me it's weird. I mean we catfish that are hardest for me to sympathize with are the ones who have been doing it for a long time to multiple people. As like i can understand your seventeen or whatever and you live in a small town or a big city. But you're struggling with security or you're trying to sort of come out about your sexuality whatever it might be any number of things that we all go through at some point in our lives and you make a fake account. Because you're curious about talking to people are expressing yourself mr way and then one of those relationships gets away from you and turned into this thing and you don't have to end it like i get that when i don't get our people who have done that and then seen me kind of party that victim indoors and then just gone onto the next person and done it again. Yeah and then gone and done it again. And we've had people on the show that been doing it for years and years. In some cases decades we've talked to and catfish dozens of people and to me that that find that a little bit harder to sympathize with. Because you've now chosen over and over again knowing full. Well the results of your decision making to continue putting your own personal preferences an and desires ahead of all these other people and it's not an accident. It's not like a by mistake. It's it's very intentional. So there definitely to sort of different types of people. i think. I still don't think they're ever necessarily mean spirited but there's a there's a there's a level of selfishness and a lack of empathy that goes into their decision making that they should consider. Yeah people ask you know. Why would someone let this happen. And it's like we already answered it. You know you really just want it so badly it's like it's you could probably figure it out but if someone's having a harder time like they're like i don't know man i feel like a normal stable person and i just don't know what's going on i feel like what are your i go. Two steps like avoid it tips and track. I mean we watched the show but maybe not everybody has washed his show. Talk about the google image search because it's like is that a thing is like utah track. Let's say and. I love google image as a good trick so a couple of things first of all. I don't completely condone internet relationships even with people that you don't know rule you can't necessarily verify that there is. There's a lot of good that can come from that. I think a lot of people find like minded communities some people who with whom they share important information and ideas like that's great and i even often compare these relationships even when they seem completely absurd may even had a girl on the show who thought she was dating chris brown. I remember that one right and so even though you could anyone you ask what tell you. That's absolutely insane your chances of it that really being chris brown are. Let's just call it one in a million even even call it one in a billion my responses will. How many people do you know that played a lottery every week. What are the chances of winning the lottery right less than that people still do it because it gives them a little bit of a sense of what if it's kind of fun and even though it's hard earned money that they could be saving and turn into as much money as they might like. That's what they enjoy doing with their time and their money. So i just think it's interesting to think about that because a lot of people come up and like how can these people be so dumb. Or how could they be so blind or oblivious. But like. I don't think it's always that i think it's a choice. It's like look. I know this is absurd and i i. I don't necessarily believe that this is going to work out. But it's better than anything else. I've got in my life and what's the harm okay But that said if you are talking to someone and you have feelings for them and you're not sure that they're telling you the truth because they've avoided base timing or cancelled plans to meet up a couple small things you can do. Even though i know a lot of people say feels creepy. Obviously google them not to say that you'll find anything crazy but you should find something You know if you know the person's name or any of the town they live in their job or you know there's a good chance that they should have some information on the internet whether it's on linked in or whatever they say they work at wendy's wendy's say hey is josh there. If josh's your boyfriend's it shouldn't be that weird that you call to say hi at work. It's i know it feels a little awkward but like worth it. Yeah but no one wants to do that. Because they don't want they. Oh well that would be so embarrassing hammer. What if he's not there. And i just feel like an idiot like well. If he's not there because it doesn't work there then you should know that show up at the wendy's who doesn't want wendy show her more embarrassing to continue today some person and knock dig a little bag. I'd rather make now. Obviously if they don't live close enough that you can just drop by. You know there are websites that you can pay to us. And it's not that expensive. Like i think for thirty bucks new can run. Someone's phone number. Might be less than that or you might have to subscribe and then you can cancel whatever worth it. Run the phone number. And sometimes you get results Website and you don't on up so it does help to do at least on two different websites. Obviously you can do a reverse image search on just two images dot google dot com and click and drag picture into the search bar again not always hundred percent guaranteed to work but if the pictures are looking at are some guy who's on a tumbler page call by light skin hot guy ads like it'll it could show up. Okay let me ask you about google image search if it's a private instagram account and someone's sending you photos that get ahead. I don't think so. I don't think it even finds things on public instagram pages. Weirdly it'll find it but maybe you know what it will find it if it will find like the thumbnail so like if if the if the person's instagram accounts thumbnail is the picture that gets picked up because like they're all these weird instagram like copycat sites called like pictogram or whatever where they basically just like Recycle instagram comments. I don't know anyway. It's a weird dark strange murky place but yeah immature not always guaranteed to work So that's why it's good to do all these things but like the best thing you can do is if they haven't facebook page or an instagram. Go through the comments. Are the people leaving comments. Just saying heart is fire like eggplants or are they like writing stuff like oh my god so fun. Like what like can't wait to see you next week or say. How do your cousin is it. Are they personalized. And then if you really do want to again make sure like message one or two of them and say hey. How do you know josh like. He's my boyfriend and see what they say if all of them say like oh i don't really know him. I just know on the internet. That could be an indication that like. You're one of the many people who think they know josh. But doesn't also josh is your boyfriend. You should know his last name and you should know all these things. Like i'm just i'm by now it's scary out for for anybody but especially for women like if i'm ever going to meet somebody i know they're lame i've looked them up on linked in you know like it's that fear of you're right. They're they're wanting to win the lottery there. Wanting to know the truth you know so. It's more like you're not asking because if you ask somebody there last. Am and work before they. They wanna meet you in person and they are weird about telling you like. I am asking those questions i think is not wearing. I think you're saying people get tripped up. Because john barris you to do these things but like at the end of the day. I don't think there's anything wrong with saying you're stranger. I met on the internet. Of course i did due diligence. We'll right but what happens is relationships starts just as fun Friendship correspondence right. And and then it becomes this like trusted confidante friendship and at that point for you to oh i know we've opened up to each other and talk about personal stuff but like i don't really know if i can trust you or if i believe that you are who you say you are almost like a betrayal and when people and when people do say it the catfish often says how could you gaslight you how could you how could the catfish often uses the tactic of saying. I can't believe you don't trust me and that you question me about this thing. I'm so hurt. And then the victim or the hopeful as we call them feels bad. Because then you know like oh. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. I of course. I believe you. I didn't you know. And then you backpedal. And you're like no no i can't believe you and then you stop asking because you feel you don't want to upset them again like it's it's this thing that we've seen happen a lot. A lot of people said as how do i confront someone on. Can i ever forgive them. If i really actually do feelings or can. I pass this. What are your thoughts on that. I mean it. It's tough because i think the success of these online long distance digital relationships as a lot to do with the mystery of them and the compartmentalization of it. This idea that you can have this person who exists essentially just in your head and heart right that you don't have to interact with them in the real world. There's no there's no expectations of you. You don't share your bed or your bathroom with them. But they wake up to a text every morning and you get a text every night again. It's this private relationship but you're having that most people don't even really tell their friends or family about and so it's tough because you don't wanna lose that but if you're if you're feeling like you sort of hit a wall and you can't get past or through it because this person's on avoiding certain things or won't base time or cancelling are standing you up and you realize you need to do something you know. Obviously the first thing you should do is right in two catfish an email catfish nave a g mail dot com and maybe a win the lion and get on the show. We need stories literally. We are like we're looking for stories right. Yeah maybe i should say might start crazy story we want you know but maybe but i'll tell you see anything but i think you have to. You have to force yourself to have a you have to. You have to have enough respect for yourself to do. What's right for you and that doesn't mean you have to be mean about. I think you have to hard as it is. You have to say look josh. I really love talk to you. And i've been so this has been so great but i can't keep talking to you if if you can't do this thing and that's just because that's what i need and we're in a relationship and you really love me then you would understand that. So think about that. Mulling over but like if you don't hear back from you or if you can't time this week or whatever the deadlines timeframe is that. I need to stop talking to you high. And that's hard. That's hard because you don't wanna give up josh but like if josh's legit and cares about you like that should be easy for him. Also josh works at wendy's you can do better. I mean i think also like a girlfriend and this is not your traditional catfish you were saying. The word gets thrown around and misused but she was just use dating a guy she was younger she was in her early twenty s. He was married with kids. And i would always just you know. His house was getting renovated so they had to meet in a hotel and they will go on trips and all this stuff and she you know she feels like she would have never fallen this for this today as you know in her late thirties but she just every time she asked even the smallest been of. Hey i just think it's weird like why have i. I think she one days. That was like if you don't take me to your house. I can't do anymore. And he flipped out it was like how dare you not trust me. And she actually finally sat next to a pi on a plane. They were drinking. She started talking about her relationship and how she had doubts and he was like. I can find this out for you. Five minutes and they landed and he ran track. He was married with kids. She's he sent her his address and our friend drove by the house and saw come out of his house with his wife and his kids. And so i mean and then she confronted him in the immediate confrontation. She was like meet me at this place and he's still trying to say it's not true edge us but it's like i say that that's why gas lighting of you're crazy. How dare you not trust me. Well and not just leading but also like people live it. You don't have to go on the internet to get the lied to me. It's not it's not a it's on an internet phenomenon. I think you mean many bars all the time. The lie about their income. What they do they have kids. And those things that are a little easier to check through so many public records wedding. Registries kids registers. We didn't episode on stocking a few weeks ago. So we're not gonna look. Look the reality is if you wanna find out there's always a way but it's a lot of people subconsciously or consciously preferred not to find out because then they're perfect boyfriend goes away or they're perfect girlfriend or whatever it is so you just have to consider. How much are you allowing this. And how much are you In many cases participating in this make believe. When i was a kid and my parents finally told me my imaginary friend wasn't real. It was devastating and they had like really gas catfish and they have like bought me gifts from her ashley. North is a real nora. I was just hearing about then. I finally was like i. I always sorted new like it was a whole thing that my parents it was like a. Did you see what you should do. Now is you. Should you should make an instagram account for north and friend. Your parents don't say anything to them. Just have them be like wait. A second is this way. I'm going to do some real fucked up shit. And be. like noriega found out. She's my dad's kid and she went on twenty three and me or whatever and that's her dad like your email from twenty three minutes just like you have a new dna match like anyway. That'd be great now. This is what. I'm doing the rest of the year. This is going to be your parents christmas. Gosh have you seen anything crazy whether it's changed since two thousand twelve or are you ever shocked anymore like do you have anything in recent memory. That was like this person went above and beyond the cat fishing. Yeah i think the thing that shocked me Recently what. We didn't think this was again. This was just last season Season that just aired. We had an episode where this guy who is now in a very serious relationship and has a daughter with this girl but years ago when a teenager he had fallen in love for the first time with this girl on the internet and correspondent. For about two years i think events she broke his heart and started dating some other guy and he'd just been crushed now anyway and never met her okay and then periodically. I think he would try to find like she would pop up whoever she she kind of lingered in his life for years even up until the present and and it was actually his girlfriend eroding. Much like look. I need my boyfriend to stop wondering if that was ever rebecca because like he can't get rid of it like she's in his head even though he's in love with me and we're very happy like it's this thing that bothering me as his girlfriend. I need dot so we. We did what we do. And we discovered that the girl pictures was actually real and her name was her name but that it had been her. Mom who had been using photos of her daughter would even gone into her daughter's phone when she was sleeping and taking like sexy. Selfie fees offered it but she had taken to send to her boyfriend at the time and had talked to this like sixteen seventeen year. Old kid for years Oh yeah really weird and and the woman's obviously doesn't do it anymore and she's into a therapist since you know borderline if not blatantly criminal for a thirty wait thirty forty year old woman to be talking to someone underage and sending pictures of their daughter which is to see invasion on top of it and the weirdest thing was at the daughter had found out confronted her mom about it. They had this weird falling out but they since repair themselves and she was actually the one who like helped us figure it out like we found the daughter on the internet. Say oh she looks like she's married. We reached out. She's like okay. Oh my god like. I'll help you find out the truth. And then she brought her mom. What anyway it was her mom dennis to a bunch of different guys or this one. Yeah oh wow oh. My gosh with the daughters picks like oh my god you can imagine how like surprised. Gross out and furious. The daughter was super super bowl. That is pretty shocking. Okay wow i. Don't that takes off that new book. do you feel. Do you feel like people are changing their tactics and getting likes liquor with the cat fishing or mean just kind of. It's kind of the same. Not really i mean because there are so many ways now that there are definitely ways now that you can be more convincing. You can use the fi the filter now to like literally put a girl's face on your face. How all right then. Yeah there's definitely like you could be more sophisticated but again the weird thing about at least the victims of catfish who sort of fall into the category that we feature on the show. The less they get the more they want. If you're just a little profile picture and occasional tax here and there might be less. Someone gets the more curious and excited. They are to to get more in am l. Wait around and they'll gauge. They'll it's crazy but that's how it works. I mean. I guess. It's like a good if i wanted to cash. That's a tactic used because today. I think there's more and more avenues to find out who somebody is like. You said if you can't find somebody on the internet they probably aren't real at this point. Well yeah i mean. I don't wanna make a sweeping statement like that obviously but I do think that it's so interesting. Like you can be corresponding with someone for months or years and never even talk on the phone. And when i ask people why haven't you asked to facetime a lotta time. I'll get the people will say that they they haven't even asked facetime facetime because pay signing his awkward when you look at the person and deal with his awkward silences and young people i mean. Everybody is but i've heard from a lot of young people that they're insecure. They don't want the way they look at so it's just easier and safer to just text and the profile of someone. It is insecure. Then they of course they don't wanna facetime like they're not exactly. We got someone asks to meet. People asked us like. How do you forgive this person. How do you forgive yourself. i mean you know. I think people really beat themselves up. Do you guys see that a lot. I mean yeah. I think there's there's always you know similar to the sort of seven stages of grief That's the thing right. I five stages. I think there are. There's a sort of similar stages of getting catfish and i. You know the the first ones usually surpri isn't then embarrassment and then so sort of a feeling of of. How can i be so naive. And kind of questioning yourself and others of course as well the depending on who and what situation is but i try really hard in the sort of aftermath of helping these people deal with finding out the truth just to remind them that a like. It's never a bad thing if someone lies to you right like you haven't done anything wrong. You got lied. To and being a trusting open person is also a good thing And sure yeah moving forward. You'll you'll hopefully employ some tools and tactics and maybe have a little bit more of a defense mechanism up but but don't change that. You are an open hearted person. because that's that's a great trait to have. And then i also do my best to sort of remind them that this experience despite it feeling shitty right now is going to be a sort of building block for your personality and it can it can and will potentially become something that makes you more interesting and you know gives you something to talk about and something to offer as as a person in conversation and will inform your decision making for the better for the rest of your life so like even though it stings right now. Like it certainly. In my case. I think in many other cases if you can look at it as a learning experience as as something that actually is is building your character. I think it can be a really positive experience. I love that that's great. I said that the girl that sent the story of the image intro. Her email was like. I've been listening to gross for three years. When you ask for catfish stories. I knew my time had come like. She's been sitting on this like it was part of her story like she is a you know she got to share it on this podcast. She loves it. We read it and you know it's just kind of you're right. I mean i think about every time. I go on a bad day. It's like well this is just a story. We use on this podcast. I think it can be. You really beat yourself up for I recently was personally caffeinated for like twelve hours. And i even like so. I mean actually knows days beating myself up for like how could i have. You let this go on for twelve hour. Hundred till i got i got catfish again after i got catfish. I did not not romantic one but like a fully. We did an episode to hold special about it. Tell us your we saw we. Don't we side. We probably talked to make a stand area on somewhere. I will tell you. How did you meet your weiss online. I technically i found her instagram account and started following her. Then months later discovered she had been following me. And so i just deandre and that's funny it's like it's nave is a name for neighbors. Like don't meet people online. Awesome totally all right. I'm finding this tax to to read jail. Yeah so well and with. This rain is going to tell you her story. And it's i can't to hear what you think. I have my own thoughts but Oh so while. you're looking at the only thing. I want to say about what we were just talking about is like even even though yeah getting no one wants to get catfish right if you consider it a relationship right. Every relationship with the exception of a handful of people who fall in love in high school on our married in die in their eighty s together every relationship has a beginning and end and some are longer than others. some are better than others. Some end nicely. Some donate nicely like but you need all those failed relationships in order to hopefully finally get into the one that you're meant to be in As i really think that like even getting catfish even as weird and awkward and uncomfortable and and you know crappy as can be is still a super important experience that you need in order to get you that much closer to being ready and the person you need to be to find the right person that and that's your story worked. Yeah exactly no thank you for. I love that. That's a great way to maybe you should get catfish starting empire. Yeah how many of you don of cash. I'll tell you have. Do you know the number we were just talking about. I think we're at like one. Seventy nine hundred seventy. I think somewhere in that area we ask. Every time i turn on the tv and hotels like ridiculousness and catfish like sorry. No actually just actually looked like someone. Made a like a yeah. It's you saw that all ridiculousness next types. I wanna know what's going with that but that's a story for different time okay. I'm sony twists and turns. I'm like nervous. I want to short in this up for you. So i woke up one morning to a in my phone. There was four text messages. I had a free day so among number unknown number. Don't know the phone number and it says sorry for the late tax. Just wanted to say hi happy monday and finally back in the. Us save healthy. I wanted to do this week. Wish i could cuddle you instead. I'll call tomorrow once. I get settled. Hopefully it'll wonder weekend descends a photo of himself with a dog. It's a cute guy. That's like my age with john campbell. You for this the next tech size. Oh shit i'm sorry it certainly possible. I've reached incorrect. Number by mistake breed. Airport encounter possible reef airport encounter overseas. Perhaps i was given the wrong number. Says he tells me his name. Math with is still. Hadn't you still hadn't responded to just four text messages. All you woke up to that. I'm like four backtrack taxed this guy about ready. Intimate text message a photo of acute guy and then being like oh shit. I think it's darn number so i'm like all right day. This is what i'm doing today I was like so excited to lash about. I was like. I'm checking into this. So i respond and i said because it's clear that this guy had like a one night stand with somebody at an airport and i was like i gotta know story so i was like that's a pretty intimate text messages. Sent her a stranger. But yes you have reached the wrong person So we start chitchatting throughout the day. This guy is like he. He seemed like super normal. Sonny he was like i at least reached. A female are age appropriate. What's your social security number routing number. Whatever i can't back couldn't resist. It was out of the dog. So i was like no no. I'm a girl. I live in new york city. I made appropriate. We like back and forth. Yeah he said are you. Single is out. Can i flirt with you. is that fine. Yeah sure we dream. This is literally like the best. He sends me a photo of himself holding this baby. It's the cutest guy. i'm like. Holy shit ashley. I'm in love. This guy is so funny on telling them the most fucked up jokes we joke. He's like can i see photo of you. I'm like louis. I sent him my instagram account. And i was like enjoy stocking their whatever. I'm like a person. I don't care so we talk throughout the day. We like trade all these different information about myself. And i'm not going to tell this person be personally. You couldn't find on the internet five seconds but i enjoyed talking to him. I'm like i guess there's some possibility. This is a real person he tells you does for a living where he lives. He's peppery and all this information throughout the day and throughout the day. I'm trying to figure out who this is. So he said research. Why sends me a couple of photos. Virgin i reverse image. Search the photos. No hatch throughout the day tells me where he went to school where he grew up. He tells me as a couple of sisters. He tells me what he does for a living. It's a government job that he would not have a public profile has actually has very like classic. You know i am but then in. I'm also a personal trainer on the side. No government employees is has time to work at the la fitness training. People have aside from home right. So i'm like so i'm to guy now. He's like sexy with a little bit. I'm like i can figure out is so my gosh so i'm looking up all this information. I'm looking up like where he went to college. Looking at the alumni association i'm reverse binding. Look up the what he says he does for a living. There should be some hit with that. I know how old he wasn't at cities that he claimed to be and andrade he sends me a. He's a sexy pack. Nieve it is a. I can't even it is like you googled. Hot body giantic and that's what it is washboard ads cock like it's just not. I saw that picture. That was the smoking gun for me. She showed me the i was like. That's not a rich. that's a fake person. New boyfriend is so great i had choo choo girlfriends on the case. Everyone's looking out there looking up the alumni association. We can't find out who he is. And so how shutdown wrote know you also. She had a friend call the number. Oh so i had a friend call the number. She did just like google phone number. She calls the number. It's not a real number was right. Yes okay a couple things. We'd the pictures when we really started zoom in. It looks like it could be a different guy like eyebrows a little bit different like it. Just the pictures look different. Hairline was and then the other smoking was that all of it first of all But like that he sent the first text. And then we don't tommy okay so throughout the day and i was like there's no what pronouns person on the internet so we can't find him anywhere phone numbers steak and i to him i like. He's like asking repackaged. I can't send you anything. So i'm looking at my phone and it like occurs to me. I never checked the timestamps text messages. So i scrawl over. I exactly work at the tax. The first four in the morning he sat me about like good morning with the dog photo and four minutes later he said i've reached the wrong person and i never check the time is up. You know what i mean. Nobody would have thought that they reached the wrong person informed. If you don't get a no response and you're like wait. Is this the wrong number. That's so weird. That's not a that you know someone. Yeah sure i thought it was to me. That's a credit. I agree with you. I agree with you. I mean four minutes obviously can feel like a very long time. If you think you're texting someone that you just like left in bed but also yes agreed. So how would he know the wrong number. That's what i'm but that's what i'm saying. Like he clears. The story was that he was a lay over and buxton girl in an airport. Obviously the kind of guy you want to be with honestly. I didn't hate it also like we do. We talk about dating and sex for a living like reno was like let me hear the story but then she just engaged having know what happened. And i also do not tell this person anything about myself me. Whatever it was fun. I asked him for his social media. I was give my instagram. Give me rest. And he was like you know because of what i do for a living. Give it to you. I don't talk. And i said i was trying to find him on the internet. He was like. I don't have any public profile. So the net so he just he catholic following up and following up and it got escalated to him like really sexting and me just like really not responding so the next day i say something wrong so i just hit him with a tax and it's said like hey i care who you are. It's been nice chatting with you but you know can't can't keep interacting. Somebody hope you understand. And he wrote me back a media laney folic pretty aggressive and he was like i don't understand. I can't believe you're ghosting out of this. I can't believe you did this. You won't even give me a reason. So i blocked the phone number. And that's that's the end of the interaction. But i did. I really beat myself up for days. Like how can i let this go on. Well yeah i mean the weird thing is like did he know who you were. So that's that's what we're wondering rano was like worried like this is a stalker but then i just thought we see so much weird behavior from everybody but you know a lot for men that just do weird stuff to get themselves off like it felt like maybe he just. That's what he was going to do that day. You know like you picked a number and it just so happened to be like a a person in the date. Yeah yeah. I think that i. I was really scared. Like private. docker really frightened. May i also told myself that there is a. There's a big range between somebody's sort of issue on your phone and showing up your home and harming you. You never know i mean. I don't wanna make blanket statements about safety. You know you should always be safe. I decided this was like a silly fun thing to do. Throughout the day. I blocked the phone number. I'm i do think by how fast you wanna way. Probably this was just like just accidentally hit on a person that happened to have some notoriety or something well and or or he's fishing for sexy photos and then he turns around and uses them to blackmail you. That's i thought that too. Like i thought even we rain a dozen think this but me and another girl friend of ours thought it could be a girl like it could easily be some girl that hates us that once thought she could maybe get nudes or like a sexy video from you and put it on the internet. You know Yeah i mean. I would never be stupid enough to send photos. But we never figure out who's lives. We use every means that we could try to figure it out. Are we sure it wasn't back today. I opened up so you need to know everything about her out here cigarettes about her life but that was my cabbage story. I don't know there would have been like you tell me. Is there any other way because figuring out who's person wise. I feel like. I know you did the right thing. Obviously it's easy easier for people like me or you know what you're following online is like you can always posted a picture. Tweet tweet a picture. No no is this. No because like it's amazing. How if the guy's a model and you know he's online somewhere and you even if you have a thousand followers like ebay amaz how quickly people can a hundred six degrees of separation. It's like oh yeah. I think i do like it. It's amazing so there's always that option. I mean it's a little weird post. A picture on your social media be like. Hey do they know who this is. If i'm super nc by my You know i roy consult somebody i. I don't know like what would it wouldn't get you any closer to finding out who you were talking to but it it might help you discover that you're not talking to that guy the pictures the pictures were really interesting. Like she said because they they do not appear to be the same man variations on different. You're not looking at his face. He sent a bunch of there was like. Yeah before that body is not with that goes without face. But i also think just in general at least in my years of dating and stocking if you have their first last name and their college it. It's something pulls up. Like even if it is like matt johnson and he went to ucla like you'll at least find that you'll find that there's twenty of them but like she had his alleged first and last name and actor where he went to school and it's a smaller school. He said so. Anyway i mean i didn't this was real but we just wanted to share with you and a good example of like i said one of the types of and i would call it probably probably more like a romance scam looking for i kinda past. You like scared me a little bit. But i understand what you're saying is like some people's reaction is like gaslight you'd be like outlets you do this you know i sent you my dick and then become manipulative and make you feel bad and then staying you keep talking to them and then again he picked the girl on that one right glad to hear that you avoided giving him any information or or allowing it to go on any longer than it did thank you. I just want to be funny story. Until ashley i was just like. This is what i'm doing today. We were like wait. Let's just because we've been trying to get you on the show for a while but you were like having kids. And whatever and the pandemic yeah but Thank you so much for this. This is great. Do you think you have any partying words. You didn't get out. No yeah i mean just because we're on a podcast we so we have now converted and we're we're releasing new episodes every week Catfish to a podcast. And so if you're new to catfish haven't seen the show or if you've seen it a few times or if you just love listening to podcasts. The cabinet podcast is really interesting. It's I actually think in a weird way. It's better than the show but because these relationships exists in this sort of ether of mystery listening to the show allows your imagination to sort of paint the picture much in the way that being the relationship. Does you have less information in your. You know so. It's kind of fun because you can imagine what these people are. Look like and where we are and kind of get a little bit closer to feeling and the texture of of the relationship. When has happened then you can when you actually see it So anyway if you're if you're looking for some more catfish in your ears a catholic fuck-ass okay anything else. You wanna plug the ever knows what you do but just you went instagram followers. You want only fans. Yeah you can follow me on facebook or tiktok. they're all the same just need showman. I mean the only other thing i would say is to promote people listening to each other more. I think one of the main reasons people get catfish because they don't feel like they have anyone who cares enough to listen to them and ask them out. They're feeling so. I think we all do a better job of checking in with each other and asking someone how they feel not because we feel like we should not because we all actually wanna tell them how we feel but just to let them tell us how they're feeling we'd all be better off. Thank you well. Thank you so much for joining us and everybody go listen to the catfish podcast. Show all the things. This is so great. Thank you so much. Yeah our guys. Well hope you enjoyed. How do you feel right now. Go great this isn't a major true. I loved it. Yeah and you is no where to find us. Girls gotta eat. Podcast dot com. Girls got e. Pike is an instagram ashley. Has raina dot greenberg and instagram girls. Underscore got twitter and youtube. Dot com slash. Girl's gotta eat and we will see next week. Thanks guys week.

From everything else that's happening the world I feel like the weather aspect of fall is still very nice. I do like the gentle transition from summer into fall gotten. This the spring transition goes like lightning quick into summer but fall always seems like a like a little slower of a decline. Would you say it's like a a red leaf sort of drifting aimlessly towards the ground landing on a pile of previous seasons sort of for us to crispy crunch classic our way through as we step rake throw burn destroy Ashes Boris. Does. Feel like audio from Middle School. Feeling this All right. Sweet well I'm sure you guys remember this is an advice show and advice podcast the only one on the Internet that Jake and I Still.

We know what do we know what seven is psych paper plastic Still, credit cards yeah. An AMEX platinum. Card. Game Baby not actual platinum. So we're good. School. All right. We got a question from a cool dude. So JPC, why don't you give us the coolest dude name we can refer to this guy as so we can conserve his anonymity. coolest dude name. I wouldn't say Chad and then I wanted to say chat. So let's go with showed. Showed rights. Sub Guys. I'm a healthy twenty, two year old fled a guy i. work out I I work out four times a week and eat much healthier than the average individual I'm a basketball player I meditate daily. Pretty. Cool. So far I guess. Holy Shit he's amazing. Wonderful. Four Times a week. You Freak. Guests that I'm pretty health focused. However, despite everything I do to be healthy. I do have a vice. It's weed. I smoke a small joint every night or every other night as kind of a reward for me to chill out at the end of the day I rarely drink only best friend's birthdays or smoke any crack is this a bad idea? Should I stop and force myself to take walks completely sober I need your help. Thanks love showed Joe. Can I ask you a question to say that he smokes crack on his best friend's birthdays he rarely drinks only on its best. An, any any never smokes crack ever want you to know that he does not smoke crack. First of all showed I. Really Admire that you make your friend's birthdays about you get drunk and make it about right on their birthdays. Everyone's wait. Yeah showed drunk day of sorts. You're not if you're not a frequent drinker that means you get drunk real fast and make a scene. So that's Maybe maybe this year for my birthday don't drink. Just, the crack then. figure. What is your guys relation to the Wacky Wacky? The devils lettuce does anyone here vibe in Jazz? Or? Squares to me. COP, COP, that's a cop. I try not. No I will take edibles I. Don't I don't smoke an actual joint because that seems like way too much work for this daddy so I will do edibles but the problem it seems like you're GonNa come across showed is at least one I take edibles I get my tummy is one symptoms so. I don't know how you smoke smoke weed and then don't get hungry and that would probably ruin your diet and your health and your. Fitness cover body. Yeah. Yeah interest. So so that would be the hurdle. So I would say if it's causing you to snack then you gotTa stop it climbs it causes you to snack. You must cut back Good. That's really good although he is working at four times a week and playing basketball. So maybe that's not an issue for him right? Because he's smoking. Is Is it four times a week and a fifth time that week he's playing basketball or accounting basketball is one of those workouts grudge. I would think because he plays basketball separately from working out and then he like workouts like he's talking about going to the gym and lifting. Oh. Okay. That's very Props to say this outdoor basketball or is this like NBA Two K. He's just a video game. We'll. He's from Toronto so. However much outdoor activity. You can get there before it starts getting frigid. The lake freezes I'm trying to be with my friends, but I can't feel my hands. How can I rip basketball? On. Comfortably numb. Realize how much of your poetry? Yes. So it's all available on the Patriot. Full verses and stanzas, and that's right. Leg. You get to not read it and so. For thirty dollars a month all shut the fuck up. I think I think for showed here he's what he's describing seems like a relatively normal thing or it's like you smoke he even says like it's a small joint. Yeah that's fine like it's fine to smoke weed it. Kinda. Feels like he frontloaded all that health stuff because he wanted to be punished for like his bad behavior like maybe there's something in there that he's like I'm a bad boy right and don't batboys deserve to get in trouble for smoking a little weed but I kind of want to feed into that thing. So I'm just GonNa say your normal you're. Not GonNa. Spank you though this podcast is GonNa Spank you dude thank you. I might feed into the bad. You're a bad boy showed. Your Naughty. Naughty it's I time for you to use this. And Sorry Jake can you are that? Jesus. I I hate that I'm hard. It was unrelated but now like there's some fucking part of my body that likes. The third spank. Ridiculous hungry like that dog. Showed I. Don't. I. Don't trust people who don't have vices not indulging in something a little bit every week then your whole lifestyle is going to crumble around you. Need an outlet for something question. What's your? What's your vice? What's your biggest vice and don't say Miami Vice now available on demand. Probably ruining my. Leads out some. Thing Was for sure my growing up anytime. My sister's would have like a birthday or prom or something I'd be like here we go. To make it about me. Shrinks Ocean. Just, any like anything? Yeah. Like faking injury over really. Yeah. caulking away. So I'll I'll break of all break foot just. So people sort of asked me what's wrong and life. Jake, what would you say is your biggest vice. I think drinking and that's like that's an actual unhealthy one because you're like poisoning your body smoking we been bad for you right? Like that's kind of been proven. That's fine. I don't know if you do it every day I'm sure it's not great mentally in the long. That's only it's not as bad as the amount of whiskey I, drink like if I could trade drinking whisky for smoking weed be healthier for sure. Yeah. What do you mean? Yeah. Why have a problem? I could just holding at Glasgow Scott? Jesus you're shaking. Got You've got a nel gene full of whiskey. So much. I tried to turn. That was hot, Jin. Adult JPC vices. What's your main? What's Your Go-to? Who Boy I'd say beer like tiki drinks or just TV in general. Yeah figuring out. Yeah I think Video Games is probably my biggest vice. I guess I think. So because I like ultimately, it's not super healthy for you to just like sit in front of a screen for like four hours play video games. So I I think that Kansas Advice I guess if you do it excessively anything vice. Yeah. What's your vice. ME. I thought you'd never ask you want it. You got everyone's. Just shoot your computer. Is. Just shut up his own house vice that I like doing the most that is most dangerous to me is gambling. No. Yeah that's A. Good one, we talk cinematic vice. That's. COOL vice a good way to ruin your life. So you read you read my story cinematic Vice. That's awesome. Because nobody opened the PDF yet. So I figured nobody. Actually. Patriots. What's your? What's your game? You're Vince Vaughn with Online Roulette and lose of half my life savings on this APP. Now, I do a lot of sports betting from home and then. Exists go there and gamble but. Because I'm such a Weiner, even like my vices are not like like I still scared is is still gamble as much as I did when I had no money at all. So I'm not like betting thirty thousand dollars on a football game I'm betting like twenty five dollars on a basketball game to make it a little more exciting. But of my closest friends, he makes all of his money from poker. He's that good at it but in college he got addicted to it. So his life is like this fine line where your job can turn into an addiction. I dabbled with online poker can I just do this but then it doesn't make sense to me like they're weeks where you just lose and then it's like Oh shit at my job today I lost eleven hundred dollars. Not a good look. Jaw. I'm a professional player. So I lose forty, eight percent of the time instead of fifty one percent. Yeah I've done the math and I think this is it for me podcast. Wise I'm going to try to do that. Try to handicap for a living. So I'm going to a Horse Race Park Oteibi as it were and. Sort of see if I can make money on the ponies figuring out which ones. Will Finish first second, and of course, third because that's how you got that Trifecta box. And he yeah. Well you'll never see me again, I gotta ask what Horsey putting the big money on. I don't want to give too much away but there's one called the lucky Jew that's been placing pretty well at local parks. Also I, said, I go to the track and then I also do off track betting so that that part of the story didn't make sense I'm sort of trembling because I haven't placed a bet and fourteen minutes I'm starting to freak out a little. Track has five for you to make those. Online bets Oh yeah. Oh you better believe that. Sort back to this guy are we concerned too much about his daily pot-smoking or is that fine? I think it's a good balance for his life this this email soon, like a vehicle for him to be a braggart. He wanted to tell us he works out four times a week, but he didn't have a problem. So he invented. Couch and couch within this issue quote unquote was like forty good things about this dude. So go to hell congrats showed. Have you guys ever tried to quit something just to see if it wasn't a problem like Oh maybe if it's if I can just stop drinking or stop doing this for a week, then it's not an issue but then it's like wait maybe that makes it a problem because I'm trying to quit it and then there's like a weird catch twenty. Two when I was in high school I was like no more soda no more fucking fast. Food I'm cutting them both out I'm going to be healthy no fast food no soda, and then two weeks later I was like no soda that's what it's going to be. Still on the table it's still good. Let's just ledges cards on the table everyone wait. Oh, it's still ahead. That to me was was was very very the convenience factor is very difficult, but I wanted to see if how much I could do it. Yeah. I remember trying to give up French fries for a month and it was. Not. You. Side Salad with every hamburger like freaking. Weiner. I. Like cookies for a year. It wasn't a year but I did give a cookies. Yeah. I think like I six months I was like I eat like so many cookies over the course of the week stopped eating them I. Probably I remember finding out that like carbs made you fatter that was like not a revelation of until after college I remember when I was in when I was in college I was like I'm going to go on a diet I'm just gonNA eat. Pasta. I thought that was. All right no more scurvy, right? She got curvy right away. I try to cut out caffeine because I was like I'm not addicted to it I just like it, and then immediately got such a bad migrant I threw up. For. This. I went like six hours and I was like I have to go to the hospital. I'm dying. I'm so addicted to caffeine. That's a good one for Jake also drink coffee a lot I actually recently started. There's no way I can quit coffee I I, like aside from meeting just really love it but I did I stopped drinking coffee in the afternoon. So last coffees is at noon, but I've just found a way to pack them all in before then. And then you'll have her caffeine pills at like two and three right Move over to whiskey by three thirty and. A. Little Bit of crack. Crack whiskey mixed with five hour energy. Before bed to soothe you. It's actually really impressive to quit fast food and high school I feel like most high schoolers don't have the impulse to give anything up. It seems like when you're sixteen years do whatever the fuck you want especially foodwise. I've always been kind of like a big a like I. I remember when I was in high school my mom. She came into my bedroom and was like we have to buy posters for your bedroom. You have to hang something in here. It looks prison so like you have to have something. I've always been like that but I I also really I haven't I'm like seven years sober I been -tarian for six seventeen years now. So I I'm pretty good at like cutting things out within reason but then there are things like that like fast food where it's like sometimes it's It feels like a necessity. Yeah that is an excuse. You just kind of make makeup. DECT's still do fast food even vegetarian got like an impossible burger and fries. Honestly. Yeah. Like the the revolution of impossible bergers coming up at places has made that option like I haven't had McDonald's in. Seventeen years. The Revolution History that that is such an.

Feels, almost like we lead, we led into that from the last. So, related to the posters joke about that if. Freudian wise unfortunate that it comes up more often. Wish. addle you got some unleaded advice. Yeah. I just moved into a house and for for my first house ever and I have to say thank you so much. I have to say my unsolicited advice is never hire professional movers. This is like my fifth time in Chicago hiring professional movers. As I've always had break. They cost twice what they quoted it was it was a nightmare situation. He took eight hours for them to move. So I don't know if I just have bad luck of the draw, but I would say post on craigslist drive around in the parking lots of your local college with pizza and beer. I can't everyone else's shaking their head. No, I can't stress enough. Don't hire. Don't hire professional movers. It absolutely sucks every single time. So. You do want help moving. You just don't want. Yes. From a professional yet there's something I've never met a mover, a moving company that those people who operate that who are not just the shadiest motherfuckers I've ever met in my life. It's geared. It is a weird industry like I. I put in a moving quote when I was moving to La like I submitted somewhere online and then for like the next year and a half, I got a phone call like every is like a different place strike to. Try to give me a quote Let me move. No thanks. Yeah. The guys just used. They took they took eight hours and by the innovate where there's like two hours left, they ended up calling to other people to come help because they're just like, hey, we're moving slower than we thought. So we'RE GONNA call more people and it's like I'm paying you mother fuckers by the hour like there's some things. There's something just wrong about paying accompanied by the hour and then they can just take. Their time and make more money like why wouldn't they take their time? There's no incentive for them to hurry. So I would say, just get some don't get friends because then they'll resent you because I. I've I've had friends who've asked me to helping end up helping it's awful but I would say, yeah, get some college kids especially in these uncertain times everyone's looking to make a quick buck. So yes, drive around a college campus with beard. Luring, lure kids back to eighteen. Or? Drunk. Good Moving. Moving like. Built that helps them. Rex you're advocating for hiring lower paid workers to do the same skill as the skilled workers you're essentially union busting crossing a picket. What I'm saying that these aren't skilled workers we had to start. There's four guys and only one of them was moving boxes and guess what Hughes moving one at a time the system's broken, my man I'll pay for skilled workers but I'm just saying you can't be a professional moving company and have unskilled a Lazy Fox and say I owe them. You know two hundred dollars an hour unbelievable I think I've I think I've moved three times in Chicago I've used different movers every time and it was one of the better experiences of. Of Yeah, like not having to move any of my stuff and then everything gets to where it's supposed to be in the time that it's supposed to be everything works out. Yeah. That's. Well worth but I I, also I I know that I have less stuff than you atl and I don't want to say that you have a bunch of crap. But we live different lives. I will say they don't even have a crap. You've been to my place. I had those like glass ceramic phonology heads which are like I don't know eighty, two, hundred bucks a pop, all those smashed I had or three those. They're all smashed missing my microwave plate like who? What happened to that? Why is that gone? Set missing so much stuff I'm about to move myself and part of my I'm I have hired a mover and part of the quote was telling him how many boxes I have I don't know yet. At the stage where I'm contacting the mover I'm not I. Don't have the boxes. We're doing this a month from now. So like yeah, the quote the quote only it's only an estimate tell. Tell like they have all of your shit. They really excited about that. They wouldn't even have an educated guess of how many boxes it would be. I would have no idea quoted us. It's like six fifty and ended up being fourteen hundred dollars boy coach. So over twice. So we're. A good rule for estimating boxes, think of the maximum amount of boxes that you could ever possibly imagine off your stuff fitting in and then doublet triplet because whenever you're fucking moving, it always says it's like no way. Am I gonNA use twenty boxes and then you have like forty eight boxes at you're like this is half price half. Tea Towel into the corner. Aaron did you have unsolicited advice? Do. This was given to me as unsolicited advice and it actually I think is great is have to separate instagram's and have one instagram be people that you've met and you know in real life and have another instagram to follow like artists and celebrities and musicians, or whoever else and then don't go on the celebrity instagram more than like once a month. Because I think it messes with your brain, your brain and the psychology of like seeing your friends at celebrities and seeing celebrities is friends. I thought you were going to say and then the both. Oh. Yeah. Obviously do that but. If you're addicted to them like I am helped me a lot. I just was like Oh. This is nice because now, I'm just looking at like my friends kids and not that makes a lot of celebrities. That's really nice. That I was like I. Teased myself about using the close friends thing on Instagram I like filled out like chose all my close friends and I was like Oh my close friends and then I never did but there is something that's like. It's crazy to look through that and be like, wow, I follow a lot of people and I have like thirty close friends. Interesting. So wait. So the ones the ones that you don't WanNa, view or just the celebrities or is it other people? Just people like sometimes it's like artists are people. I. Don't know just because it I think it messes with my brain a little bit. Of peaceful, do you have like two different names like the people you're you're close friends and stuff? No you as one thing and then you have just like a fake instagram for the other one. Yeah I. Don't know why. But my name is emily, which is this sort of other. Cool. kind of just like a sexy undercover. Have when you look on that when you were a blonde wig and fishnets. Clark Kent Glasses. Yeah. Exactly. Actually. Let's bring in Emily Emily. About your instagram. No. She's not cool at all. What about just following celebrities on instagram. That's probably the better. But you're asking. No one's doing. This fun. Follow Dying Keaton on Instagram but I don't need to know how her whole life is going all the time I can check in with our once every two months. Yeah. How is staying by the way? She's great. Ending. How. Many pictures is she wearing white pants in? Probably Oliver. She's wearing a hat and almost all of them I'm sure Oh you better believe Qian's wearing a hat isn't that right? Emily I can't find her voice I need a couple more minutes. Have you guys seen that social dilemma documentary has it changed your social media habbing. I asked me out. I've heard about it, but I haven't seen it yet. Yeah. Jay said yet like I was planning to go see I walked in while my girlfriend was watching and it was all I saw was like a reenactment with one of the guys for Madman and the guy from the righteous gemstones and I was very confused because I was like what is this series and she's like documentary and I'm like. Well, this is those are clearly like semi famous actors and what's going on. They went a little too far in the reenactment thing that I found that to be unsettling and bizarre, and by the end I was skipping ahead like four minutes at a time because it was it was all some weird. Play. It made no sense I thought that was crazy. It's really weird to see Pete for madman in a Hoodie whereas like this just just made it made my skin crawl because I'm like he should be a suit and tie like what's going on. have. You changed anything about your social media consumption jake since watching the stock. I know you're incredibly impressionable So I'm just wondering if it actually had an effect on you I know that after Food Inc used, you didn't eat a hamburger for a decade. Yet No I. Don't think I don't want to let this sink in too much and I don't think it really would through my phone away. So I can't even really. Change. Your. Because there was a beyond it. Hasn't changed anything or not really her just make you more aware of I'm only like a week. It's only been a week but I definitely. I think I just started noticing like I would pick up my phone to look at an alert to to see if anyone emailed me and then the phone is like in my hands on like, oh, just a might as well go on instagram and then, and so I'm trying to be a little more conscious of just like absent mindedly getting sucked into my phone I still have to get sucked into my phone though so I, don't know it's it's a really weird balance. Yeah. Like waiting in line or sitting on a toilet, what are you supposed to do? I can only bring my Rubik's cubes so many places. I did a thing also, this was more at the beginning of Corinthian like maybe like. March or April, but I put the time limit thing on my phone because I have an iphone if you've been on twitter for over an hour it just it just says like, Hey, no more twitter for today, and then you can bypass it. Then you have to feel bad and it's like. Are you sure you want to break that promise that you made yourself? And I found that I found that helpful I mean at least it helps like have someone else be like, Hey, you've been on twitter for an hour today that seems insane, right? Yeah. For sure it's insane like a put this down I think the best thing and this I don't know if they're still doing but but I know Lauren lapse in her husband did a thing where they gave each other their phones and they they concocted a password for each other's instagram account or Twitter account and then gave back the phone, and then anytime they want to use instagram or twitter they have to hand it to their spouse and say, Hey, would you put in the password and then the let them in and so that way of being held accountable to some degree of like very well, I wanna do I wanNA bother them about this right now or like maybe not maybe they're gone so I can't even do that. So I think that's a kind of a cool method. Really. Cool. Another thing that I did on my phone is I changed my twitter APP and my email. APP and stuff they're always in the exact same place on my home screen and I just swapped locations with like. Google. Home or like shit that I don't ever ever ever open just to see how many times I unconsciously grabbed my phone open up Google home and I'm like, why am I controlling my lights right now with the fucking? It's my brain being like get on twitter get on twitter share on twitter. which is interesting except with my photo. APP. So like just constantly like opening up my latest photos and like. All right. What about this? It's a it's a dummy instagram that just shows you google image search randomness. So it's like you're still scrolling through patriots you get the dopamine rush but like it doesn't actually, which is basically what instagram is look at it, and then it's like if you ask me thirty seconds later, what did you see? That's cool. I don't know you should be able to you should be able to post on it too, and then as you scroll to your photo, be thousand likes. They wouldn't be real. I see so like. An APP. It's like you got a million lakes. Out. Positive likes and comments. That's good. Diane Keaton just said Hey We're just talking about living in a coma style life, and then they're just pumping youthful of dopamine that's not actually true Avi. Episode. Cube. Earlier did you guys watch that Rubik's Cube documentary on Netflix? The competition my sobbed. Really Short go watch it i. cried so hard the whole time it's amazing. It's seven and a half seconds long but it's You slow divine. From twenty. Fifteen and it made me sob my got Rubik's cube and I used to know how to do it. So I was like, Oh, I should do that again because then you know preoccupies her hands so that you can actually scroll. You're just moving colors around we're like because my appetite for social media gratification is insatiable than maybe I can make it tick talk about it and then so it's almost like a way for me to still get that dopamine rush even though I'm doing the Rubik's cubes if I could just fucking do it faster faster and it's never fast enough you put the House Oregon please. Off My phone what if there's an APP listen uptick heads what if there's an APP where you have to solve a riddle or puzzle or a Rubik's Cube, and then once you solve it then you get you know ten minutes of instagram time or something who did. Those talks that you have to like your those alarm clocks break apart or or run away from you. So you have to get out of bed and have. You ever seen those things is this from inner starring style laugh in the last two years was when I discovered those alarm clocks that jump off of your. Side table. Chases to turn it off. I've never laughed harder. My Life I was sobbed crying behind. Why are we doing little robot? Do they have do they have like wheels or something or hot? Wheels and they like scream. At like eight, am they just roll off your side table and chaotically go around your home you have to? Just like try to find the screaming robot. Under your bed, ordering one of these tonight. Remember the game trying remembering, remember the game perfection as a kid where it's like fucking trembling and you're like putting puzzle pieces. James I. Hate It. Yeah. So it could be that as an alarm of sorts horrible. You wake up and you're instantly in a bomb defusing situation. Worse wakeup. Instantly, humans create problems and then force weird's more difficult issues. It's like when you found your friends Dave sleeping with his sunglasses on in a bright room instead of just like attorney room off. We just add more sunglasses and then we make lights brighter and then we have to make newer sunglasses. Anyway. JPC DOES JPC advice. Unsolicited advice you know. My. My solicited advice would just be something that I've been doing a lot more during the these uncertain times video games yourself in. Video Games. Go for walks like try your best to go for walks wear masks if you go outside but like walk around a little bit especially when the weather is nice because I like the fall weather but. I. If you are one of these people that is like cooped up inside your own, a house or apartment or Condo or whatever. Get out get some fresh air. My my advice isn't polarizing like don't hire movers or. Created. A cat everybody the deleted. Polarizing. You'll find a way to build how dare you say go. Staying inside more and I've never been healthier happier. Falling. Out. Why I'm Paler than the night sky. Big Sean. Is going to control me. Behind walks I can definitely get behind walks. That's great. Is Anybody a dog owner I'm a dog owner. So the walks that I take are like mandated by another a third party who is very insistent that we go out there but I think that's also just kind of an excuse for me like I like having a walking buddy. Yeah, and it's nice to have to pick up shit to walk. I'm just walking off to pick up any duty announced like I have to pick up little duties. Sometimes, I'll be walking without my dog and I'll see like a goose or a rat dropping or something like that, and I'll pick it up just because I missed the. Fake instagram I'll use A. Bag. That tactile feel of very thin sheet of plastic between you and touch. pooh-pooh Baby Unit Oblivion Baby. Down Chicago, and so I can't really walk with my dog. We can go to the park that attached to my building and that that because like the sound of the trains and like the treatment of traffic and construction sounds she's just too scared to it. Now. Oh Yeah I will say that the caveat to that is I was Just a Chicago Street but I was. Walking Down Halstead the other day because we were picking up food and it's not an area where I live way busy and there was just so many people on the street and I was like having anxiety because I was like this is not like me walking neighborhood. This is stressful. It's like I watched a man just without a mask openly spit on the ground I'm like people are still doing this wild like, what are we doing So so that part is not ideal, but if you if you have a quieter place to walk, it's it's great Mediterranean food or were you taking out like Wyan food really like why able or like? What was so rice would earn alleged -tarian so. For Fish Roy. Roy Yeah like no, it was A. Spam Katsu locum Oko was what my girlfriend gone which is like deep fried spam. Rice Mac. Salad egg and gravy sounds blocking. Amazing. Oh my Bam. Spam. Is Meet or not meet. Spam spam meet spamming. You cannot have spam I have spam spam army ration meet, right? Yeah. Yeah. which is which wild Hawaiian Food and kind of incorporated it because there was a bunch of it for like military bases I guess on Hawaii and so then they kind of embraced it and now they use a lot in like Hawaiian didn't know I was GONNA learn today. Welcome. Anytime. You see a restaurant serving locomotives by one. They are delicious by the restaurant. They're so good. The hell how much money do you have you? Walk out. Parking restaurants. That's awesome. Oh I'm ruined. Because I've invested in, Hawaiian, in the Midwest nobody will find. What's the name of the restaurant and I have dog pondering it's just it's a lot of terrible just band names. Jacob are considering moving to Hawaii. This is all good information. You've been talking about it. Do. You have a specific island that you think about now is A. Great Question. The the jewel of Hawaii real the road to Hana. Have you guys been before? I have. We've. BEEN TO HAWAII WHY yeah we bet we've been to. Do. I I've been to I've been to Ohio. But I've never been to Maui I'd love to I'd love to be a now I'd like to live in Maui, have to take you have to take the road to Hana and the Rotana is winding. Beautiful. Road. Ends at Charles Lindbergh's grave, which is just a delight. Wow. and. There's really good. Shows do and just like go to Hawaii for a little bit. Take Hawaii. Partying there no one's filming you. Can do it as a podcast Jacomb Amir take. Hawaii. Broadcast from our airbnb about the movies. Jake Amir Hawaii into Jamiroquai ou miracle WII. Virtual Insanity. I will say I love Hawaii and but the it's the least creative that ever felt in my entire life being in Hawaii because I'm like, what is the point of creating comedy or anything when you could just Lay. In the sun in climbing mountains and swimming the. Why why it's already paradise. Need to do. Chief Yeah I want to. Go to a Hawaiian retire I'm done your. Stuff that sounds great to me too I've tweeted my last week posted my life Tiktok. You'll never go to Hawaii and pick up dog shit please. The hard part is convincing somebody to pay me twenty thousand dollars a month to live there, which is actually why you guys 'cause twenty thousand about this a lot but divided by three. Feels like reasonable right six, seven, hundred dollars a pop aaron can I count on you? Only if you send me a poem every day. That's the creativity she. She was on board. and. I was in the middle of writing a check. All right fine every other day but that's it. We got one last question about neighbors neighbors. This is a twenty something Canadian gals. So Aaron, you've already created a character in this podcast. So what's one more? Can you think of the name of twenty-something Canadian Gal? Let's call her hockey. Hockey writes I'm a twentysomethings neutral twenty. Canadian Gal who lives with their parents in a bit of a predicament the backyard neighbors that's neighbors for you guys like to huddle. With An. Or? GonNa continuing. Likes they liked to hot tub in the nude it's a man in his fifties who lives there but his girlfriend is also a participant in the nudist activities, our kitchen window back into their backyard. So every day around five PM when I'm making dinner, there's an unwanted show they installed the screen on the back of the hot tub in our direction, but have only ever used it if they could. Explicitly see us in our backyard. My parents also have seen the show and they my mom at least would appreciate the screen down by -thing suits on I thought about writing an anonymous letter to them to make the screen door, use the one that they installed but I think our backyard and house is the only one with the direct view. So that wouldn't really be anonymous and might be prude. And just. Being approved and just need to avoid looking out the window for a couple of hours. An outside perspective would be appreciated. Thanks for making Mondays better love from Canada hockey. Hockey. Would, you guys be excited or pissed of yet to stare at a nudist couple? Get. Excited her pissed. Did it say how old the girlfriend was? Yeah. I'm so confused about that like the man is in his fifties, the has a girlfriend that's right a girlfriend who is a participant and she's ninety nine what age. Newt. I. Love. Her Age are they kissing and staff? Are they just sitting naked? Chilin. They're just enjoying the TUB. Yeah I mean like. When they say like you have to look at it. You don't like you just don't. You don't. You just don't. You just do not have to look at the third of not being excited or pissed. Ignoring. Neutral. I think there's a couple of different ways that you could go about this. If you if you wanted to, you could just have a conversation with him into. Hey, we see you naked in your hot tub often like I. It's it's weird. It's uncomfortable. Would you put us the screen perfect or my option because I don't like that kind of confrontation go by a tripod set up a camera on your porch facing their backyard don't stand by just set it up the presence of a tripod a camera pointed at me would stop me from big bicker. Just would it's also not going to have a trump backfire immediately because they've been, they're getting naked more and you're like, oh no, they are into it. Off To that Shit, I'm on board with GPC's idea in terms of one. Yeah. I, think conversation of just like, Hey, this is around the time I cook dinner. Could you do this in our earlier or an hour later so that it's not during my meal prep time and or I do love the idea of like the passive aggression of like having every day at that time had like a garage sale. That's. Like yard sale so that you're populating your backyard with Feick twenty people who are inevitably going to see that. So it makes them uncomfortable not ashamed. You do your thing just just don't just don't put that out there for others were Hafiz it. About fighting fire with fire. Okay. So, hard earned under house her parents. Take Luck in new Jacuzzi with your mom and Dad. dinnertime. Please new the. Dixon as far as the I could see, and then another neighbors starts complaining and they get in on the action and suddenly it's fucking back hill in word. Of epic proportions, everyone's greedy see wrestling getting naked hot and bothered mom this is really fucking sexy. Neighborhood Watch. I don't don't. You have blind I would just put my blinds up at night like do you need you don't need the light coming in because it's nighttime just put a curtain and up or put your blinds down. Let you enjoy their yard. Do you blind does make some sense because it's now? It sounds like the view is directly of the neighbors hot TUB. Anyway. So you're not losing that much. You know whether they're in it or not if the blinds are drawn. My other idea. My other idea is to just kind of start going in and out of house during your dinner prep. You know maybe you're grilling maybe you're eating on the porch, maybe you're taking out the garbage but just sort of make make it seem like the backyard is not. Always. Yeah. Just you're in and out of the House. Giving the neighbors like put the fear of God in them just a little bit like Oh. We're not actually at loan back here 'cause how hard is it to just leave the screen down all the time. What do they put it up something? You're absolutely right. It's a blinds would solve this problem immediately it's also I think maybe the least fun way to solve this problem I think that what hockey needs to remember is like yourself a time like the next time he's coming out at naked to his hot tub rush out there and be like, Hey, just wanted to let you know you should see like a penis doctor because that's not what they're supposed to look like. So. You get that schedule of your time but do that quickly because you are running out of time their penis weird. What are you trying to say? Not even talking about you. Know Hey. Nobody said, weird. I said not supposed to look like in real quick mirror does your doctor grab your Dick when he checks for her new? Communist. Doctor does. Just the dentist. That's I was recommending a water pick earlier off. Mike. But yeah. So he'll grab my Dick and tell me to summarize. SCROTAL line, which is sort of. Under by and goes all the way down through my. Out My staff and I have this so many words I hate here anal ginger, Vitus of sorts. Gossiping I have a plaque on my rack. So across my chest, I have this thick almost hardened white cock. You. All on the Canadian. Police outside my fucking. Finally. Yeah. I guess somebody called 'cause I've been podcasting in the nude for a while. Yet. Sweet. So I guess blinds if you're uncomfortable or get over yourself, it's not that big of a deal. Would you guys do anything about it? Or. You got some care. I don't think it would bother me so much. Yeah. I don't think so either but then Make It in New York City all the time it's awesome. Yeah By. noculars. Right there. White naked and you'll shop. On. What are you waiting for? I don't think I've ever been to New York City by the way without seeing someone naked in their apartment just because there's so many buildings are so many windows and there's so many like exhibitionists like type people out there that are like legit every time I go to New York City naked person.

When you are living with your parents, I wouldn't want to have that discussion with like my mom and dad of like, what should we do about the naked neighbor? Whimsical when it's with your parents parents, all any sex discussion should be through posters. The posters should be the catalyst for any sort of yes. A poster on your wall. The way that you want to discuss every naked person that you see in someone else's apartment is with your five white best friends in New York City one of them's in Chandler. Ross and you're seeing it from a balcony. You're just always commenting on it and threw light through like kids seasons ugly naked guy but then didn't die. I think he did. Show or in real life. You never see him but at one point there like ugly naked guy's not moving and. ENDS UP DYING JAKE I don't know if you know this but if you die in friends who died in real life. Nightmare on ELM street of sorts this I just thought of this because of the hockey talk isn't and I could this could be totally wrong.

Something's Gotta Give with Bobby Finger

"Right. Jonah what say to? While you will show with. I cast. Yeah. Well, I pod cast you too. If that's what you said. I don't know if it ends in your. It's a true, I pod cast you. Great. You're not like anybody. Yeah. What's a Kiana line? I recommend it. If you can walk up the stairs. You can make love. This is your best work yet. Don't you love being with a man who isn't intimidated by your brilliance, right? Like appears I've been set up stood up or something it appears I've been set up. Because people make to do who Spacey. No, he's John impressions usually make him. Sound dumb? Extremely extremely relaxed buried. There's a there's a solidness to him. Yeah. He's very centered. He it seems like Jack Nicholson poll a gun on him. And he just sort of be like well. Oh, no. People like overdo, the wo- and they do Kano's. Sure. Yeah. Like, it's not him. But especially in this. He's tempering it, you know, a medical degree. Hello. I'm dr. Thirty six thirty six I'm realizing I'm good at this. Because the other impression I'm weirdly good at that. No one does Joseph Gordon Levitt. And I think they're kind of similar to him. Now. He's in this movie. This is a total. Mike told him is a loaded die. I know the precise weight and shape of my die. Is it just like a five really great? Roles as like five great. That's how I know. I'm not in a dream or Joe, she has the pawn. She makes pawn over that that's your tone and just knocked the pony over the basics. Right. I don't know. I would make transformer where it's like a real complicated process. You know, what I'm saying not just like does it fall over and it's like gravity there. Other factors transformers like only know the precise way. The Bumblebee turns. Wairoa? Wave and his tiny cassette frenzy. Great. That's the nerdy thing. I've done in this episode so far. Lord by my name's Griffin Newman, Davidson trek with Griffin, David. It's a podcast about filmography. Directors who have massive success ROY on their career, a Guinness blinked checks. Make whatever crazy passion projects they want. And sometimes those checks clear, and sometimes something's gotta give baby. Yeah. This is the blank check. I am. I guess one hundred percent and you watch it now. And you're like otas. Crazy. They let her make this for eighty million to really big stars. Which is also she'd just made a huge hit. Biggest hit. I just read this on the trivia FOX turned this down because they said the leads tool. So even you have Jack Nicholson who up until this point is still consistent fucking money in the Bank. You have someone who just directed the highest grossing romantic comedy of all time to that point. And they still were like, I don't know. But they're sixty I'm going to beat you on Jack being money in the Bank because he's only hit of the last ten years is incre management that came out the same years. This would not have been that that came out this year like when they're going into production. And also, I mean samplers would file About Schmidt as a hit. Yeah. About Schmidt was an Oscar movie that did really well eighty million dollars Alexander. Okay. That's that's a good fuck number for Jovi. But also he had made the pledge, blood and wine the evening star the crossing guard. It's time for that. Yeah. Mars, Texas in there, which even more Texan do that. Well, took some time off he didn't make noise for a couple of years between ninety seven and after it's good to get time off right right said he is a little in the right in the twice after crossing guard the pledge he felt a little burnout because he was proud of those two movies. And then see them proud of those performances. He took time off and they said after September eleventh, he only wants make fun movies. But how did how did he say that? I only wanna make fun movies. Sure. My Nicholson, I sometimes have it. If flies away from me. But but so I only wanna make comedies. I wanna make people laugh Billy. He was saying this to Billy crystal during an Oscar telecast, I built it was like, please someone's trying to present best sound mixing. But today that was his big thing he came back with anger management. Something's gotta give he was like, I'm going to do sailor movie. Do a rom com. I wanna be lights and they were hits. And they were big hits. Yeah. Off bad box office round. He's still a legend. Certainly do you think he saw the parents and was like I can do that too. There was a payroll hundred. Because that's right. Like these movies. They're in their aimed at the same viewer Nicholson had always been funnier than deniro like even his dramas. He was always funny. That's true. So it's like what's not like I'd be reinventing myself to be in a comedy. I'm just putting myself in a different broad -ness of comedy. No one else is going to be the star of this movie. Right. Like, this is kind of binchy Myers writing script. It's like what's the deal with Jack Nicholson right for the two of them begins them sitting down at dinner. And being like what what is what what do you do this? She wrote it for the two of them. I don't think she would've made it without the two of them. It's very much a deconstruction of his star persona in day. Right. Yeah. I mean, they they made it like, can you believe they never been together before they were like in reds together. Not like the idea of making a movie that's top line by the two of them. I mean, it's also it's also Nancy Meyer saying what would it be like if I dated Jack Nicklaus. The other thing is that Diane Keaton is like. Her perfect representation on screen, and the when you look at pictures ANSI Meyer. She looks like Daikin in this movie down to the turtlenecks, which he has not gotten rid of. She hasn't cut those up yet. She had written the father of the bride movie. She had written baby, boom. It's clear that she'd liked Diane Keaton, and they had a, you know, somewhat symbiotic relationship in terms of sensibilities, and this just feels like I'm gonna have you play me just literally play everything in my brain is that okay? And I'm going to dress. You like me they always fairly similar to. I just want to offer a bit of a warning before. I introduced sure sure sure. Okay. Good. Because of course, this on the film's Nancy Meyers we've gotten to the first blank check film. We've gotten to the namesake of miniseries podcasts podcasts rights. The greenback. Guests whose favorite and we haven't had on way too fucking long about turtlenecks. She looks exactly like her, right? Yeah. Yeah. This is like she's in black. So she's like dark Nazi she's the Blackstone didn't she like comes out of the like onto the set in the morning like black. I think I imagine that's her. I'm sorry on Mike off Nancy. Thank you, producer, panic benthic. If she just like Michael Myers than gnome would call her dark Nansen hit. I came meat lover. I k- the Faulk master which Hello fennel mistreats loved the German title. Not professor crispy this certain tells the course of Mesa's such as Kyle Rankin. Trump gets over to any dot L events with the dollar sign war Hawes produer Bain just looking at some great pictures. She was good. That was a good little seen. She's in private practice. Okay. Mr Ben credible. Oh, yeah. And eat drink and Hans hell ya. Our guest our guest today is one of our favorite people. We both say that that he's one of the people we've ever known and we both professional comedians, which is one hundred percent meant as a. Every time you both complement to Bobby and a back end because I want. Prepared before we introduce them because lays gel men you're about to get. I knew it there. It is. There. It is. Thank you from. Hi, meekly, Bobby fingers back on the show lays and Jill. Hi, everyone. Thanks for having me again. Oh, what a plant a moment. I heard you were doing this or that it was in contention. I was just well I mean when when Nancy came which I was just I hope we'll wait up the call. I believe we just it was like Bobby picks. I right. There was like actually, no hesitation. We wanted the twins for the parent trap. That was a big twin writing. But part from that. I think. Yeah. And Richard made clear what he wanted to do you want to go home again? Home again, his part of this. Oh, yes. Oh, yes. Oh my God. But we I feel like we actually waited awhile to officially ask you because from the moment we thought she might win. We were just like obviously Bob is going to do one. Like, it just seemed like such a foregone conclusion that we forgot to loop you into right? What if Bobby been like fuck, no hate Nancy Meyers hack. It was really thrilling to get the actual question. Rendez what I wanted. I wanted. I mean, I love the parent trap. It was like pick. What you want parent trap is taken which I understand. Sure. Sure. And that was money's backup. Something's gotta give. I was like if for some reason Bobby picks that then we would have the twins. Right parent trap is is is the closest to my heart. But something's gotta give is. I mean, it's her best movie. I also just no vestment. I I've talked before talk again when it gets episode. But I in turn addition for the intern like seventeen times and the second I got the script. Immediately just emailed it to you. I might not have even asked. Do you want to just came in the mail? It was so excited and sort of how casually you send it to me. Like, oh, I addition for this. I think you'd like it. I felt like I felt like I had gotten the Pentagon papers. I I didn't tell anyone I was just so excited. Maybe I told someone but weeks later needed that to yourself up, and it came up in conversation like Nancy's new movie, or whatever this movie is still being made. And I was like, well, I read it, and I was just so proud and even to this day. Like, it's it was I remember that moment very fondly so special that movie, very special. It's one of the only times I've slipped a script to someone in that way. And it was like, I is your few scripts lips. Grip gets bigger. One one slip one script slip that you also sent me which wasn't even a full script. I think it was just a camera photo of title page for national treasure three. Oh, okay. Yes. Yes. Yes. I. That as well. Never went right. Derek Simon my oldest friends future guests. He and I are obsessed with the national treasure most interesting branded because I'm going to actually draw a big national treasure parallel in this episode. Something's gotta give have one in the hopper. But we were obsessed with national treasure and were always like frustrated with the fact they weren't making a third one. And the big thing that fucked imagine being so for the end to is such a tip. And also, I feel like it was it was nNcholas cage is last tether to reality. I mean like it was his final studio thing how does to end to ends with when he was trying to find the. Right. But there's that book that he needs to find the map where the thing is hidden, but the book of secrets the book of secrets, and when he ups president Bruce Greenwood in the tunnels of the underground railroad right scream would says like he tells them where the book is and how to find a movie about him proving that his great, great grandpa didn't shoot Abraham. Correct. Because at Harris has proved for something right because Harris's grandmother, always got blamed for something. Should we do special hundred? Okay. And her grandfather, and his family lineage has been cursed with this notion of them like the abolitionist, you know, like turncoats slave Levin bullshit, and he's like not me you and he puts it on the gates family and cage has to clear the names and the only way to do that somehow kidnap to prison the United States takes them into the tunnel. And Bruce Greenwood's like the information you're looking for is in the book of secrets it's in the library here. It's on this shelf. You'll only have eight minutes they'll try to catch you. And he's like, okay. Thank you, Mr President. And he goes, by the way, if you get the chance look at page thirty seven something, I think you might find interesting joker the movie when like the president parts crying. The hangar is like men I got this under control because they're about to arrest all twenty seven characters who part of the team at this point. And the presence like did you get a chance to look at a page twenty seven. He's like, yeah. Pretty interesting. He's like I thought you'd have some notions. And I forget how they say it but imply the page twenty seven is about the Kennedy assassination. Yes. So they're looking Nick cage, Ed Harris movies in which there's a secret document that ruin killed. Kennedy is another twice it ends. With McCain going and finding the microfilm the Connery left in the church in church in the church, light and the pew less. And the end of natural treasure to was once again at Harris has led him to the page with the Kennedy assassination. So we were just furious that we weren't getting this third movie, and our friends friend was working at Jerry bruckheimer productions or the movie got slowed down because sources apprentice, which they prioritize and then it was like, oh my God, bruckheimer turtle tub cage. We can't do that again. But they had the script that was pretty right ago. And someone was like literally carrying the script through the office and a couple of pages fell off, and this friend like ran into like a closet and took photos of the first three pages. I'm going to have to give these Pentagon papers. She felt right, right and different. Matthew rees? I'm not gonna name them because race at mid. It's it was Reese. But the first pages are amazing, which I sent to you as well. And once again involves the family lineage, which all good national treasure movies. Turtle Todd might have a bit of a after the Meg hit has some legitimacy again. But I don't think these like maybe really convinced the Daschle treasury threes. A good point what he's less of a joke, which I'm happy about. It's always nice when he right when he gives a real performance in everyone tips, the castle just dislike people acting like they are more in on the joke. Nncholas cages Fisher. No, one is more aware of how ridiculous nNcholas cage is nNcholas cage. So to be like, oh, my good. He's like out of control. He's even know what he's doing. And it's like he's trying to produce that result. Whether or not you like it. My prediction is that in the next six months. They announced for the Disney streaming service that they do and national treasure reboot. That's more focused on their child where cage will now be playing. The Jon Voight t type and it'll be. There. They'll fuck with the time line, and they'll have a seventeen year old son. And it'll be like your overhead shitty though, Ray because then bring in it's going to be tweets who's the way the host who weekly. I got ask cruise into weights is an undeniable who right? I mean, he never graduated beyond yet. No. No. No. No. No. And he gave her will. Who is K J oppa? No. It's like, no ascend Tino. Yeah. Fucking sin. Tina tina? You point of distinction. Do you think cente- no stops being a who? Because he's become such a darling. Even if it's in a small circle fucking big like blog posts love to him would need. So he's still is. Yeah, he was like hot chip for three weeks, you need more. Yeah. I mean, it's simple. Simple stuff. Some stuff Bruin. He has. He's got a little stuff little stuff. Bruin Bruin is this on the record? I don't know. I don't know. Just doesn't have some stuff. Bruin approve of him. We're like hinting at a darker side. I'm not saying anything nasty to some, you know. Well, he's he would like to have some stuff over. Yeah. You know? I also think anytime it you get one person is the subject of seventeen. Blink is the new woke bay they're just destined for a downfall. Yeah. You know? It's it's the what's his name Ken bone. It's like we rise someone up the check any ravioli. Yeah. I forgot about Ken bone Grech. He's one of my favorite his. Was he who I mean, he's like counts because he's not an entertaining sort of just like a kind of just like viral a moment of veracity. Yes, it necessarily always did record. We did record an episode. That's I guess tomorrow's episode gritty as a who. Now gritties eventually who. So I guess I just contradicted mice. Interesting, but greedy gritties. Great great. I think I'm integrating. I'll show you can trip. I don't like Kimba was to political too political. I don't like making political viral moments. Who's sure I agree with Joe the plumber? Yeah. The new mascot for the Philly the fliers the Philadelphia Flyers great. He's he's looks fun. Yeah. He's he's weird. He's a googly eyed. Can I say I see them they designed him family gritty his his hands squeak his stomach squeaks. That's lovely is is our googly sort of aero shape. Once again, you're saying okay becoming but he is an artist and he's perform back, that's your different distinction. He's a performer hembo was discovered but someone like an accident or who's kind of the ultimate who've greedy is intentional. He was made to draw internet attention redo, very going to comment on greedy. Right. There will be a photo of of gritty and Chrissy just the Chrissy Taishan recognition acknowledged. -ment land in sort of the the ark of who. Do you think? That's the moment. They've made it or the moment that they're starting to fall. They've hit the moment they made it. But also she so early. So it's the moment they made it the most. It's the most wider amount. Even sure if that counts anymore because she so prolific at this point in tweeting about everything, but she is sort of the first one to maybe tap, the the sort on each shoulder go, you're a who. Yeah. She legitimate. She lives she legitimizes thing. Because before that, maybe you're a what? Like what? Where? Gritty. Introduced Bobby, right? Forgot introduce the finger. Nice. Welcome national treasure. I'm just looking at the tabs opened while we were Brenton Thwaites. Yeah. He had he had four hacks and miss with all of them hacks at the tree he did a pirate or malicious the giver the giver gods of Egypt. Yeah. And then pirates five men tell no. Sales event. He was the son. He was Linda bloom. Son return. Okay. Okay. Scola dara. Yes. You say your name. Actress, but didn't that movie still make you know, hundreds of millions of dollars? Wasn't it still even by the standards of like, the low low standards acquired a pirate movie it was a huge flop. Okay. Did that it sort of falls into the transformers category where like four was made like seven hundred million dollars worldwide. But it costs like, you know, two hundred fifty to make you know, like, the broke even the first transformers all do really. Well, then the fourth one is like, wow, that's a big dip still profitable. And then five loss to ton of money. Okay. They're kind of on the four where it's like we're threshold e and if they went back to the well one more time, they probably lose. And then Bumblebee is next. Yes. How will Bumblebee do? You know, people say bumblebees charming, right? I have heard similar buzz. I don't know why audience. PG is it like fully a family? Maybe johnny. I liked. It seems very small. I don't know. If you guys saw the new trailer out. No, there's fine one this week. But a thing I like is all the transformers in it have the fuck and classic designs. And I'm not like one of those assholes shouldn't have changed it. But when you see a CG version of the old block Optimus prime you're like that is just a better design. That's better piece of graphic iconography than the weird flame like boobed rounded edge kinda dude, you know. So this for the fans the fans for the families, it feels a little like that. But when I was watching it, I love hailee Steinfeld, I find her charming, and she's charming the trailer. But the trailer is basically like what if like a kid found transformer in their garage. No, my we have absolutely done. This like, I don't know if this is new is the first movie that's the first thirty minutes. A war. Right. And they were like what if we kept it there, but they're still the truth. So full of robots. Go to some fucking transformer plant enough to prime is there. And he's like, I am president says some transformed plan if he doesn't know that they go to cyber trots. I genuinely you know, that they go to cyber trout. Really? Yeah. I mean threes masterpiece. Three is the good one threes from one one in three are good card. Okay. Three to four reprehensible and five is mostly reprehensible with some things Walberg five is one four and five Walberg five is the one with cog man with cognitive our favorite actors. Sociopathic butler. I kinda I turn I turned myself off when transformers I think Derek to. Yes started. I'm going to have a perfect segue. But I just wanna say transformers five features cognitive who is a robot who self identifies as a psychopath. He says I am a bit psychopathic. Yes. Who doesn't transmit boys? What's the Butler from downton abbey? Yes. Okay. He doesn't train martyrs. Isn't it? I don't know the name. I just know Butler out Naby transforms into Novi ical turn into anything. He's just like a clockwork man car. Literally nothing. He's a steam punky Butler who's just a little bit taller than human is a psychopath and likes playing dramatic musical. I mean, the best part of the whole movie, and maybe of all movie do twice is right. When Anthony Hopkins is giving some exposition, whereas you last nice like opera music playing. And then you realize that it's just cognate. He's singing he's in the rafters music. The oregon. It's really good won best supporting actor. So the thing I was gonna say is that transformers three dark of the moon fares an actor with this film. Insist McDormand that's true the villain, and that and sure she the main ruin I think she ends up being the main villain her Joel Benjamin. Who don't remember it that? Well, right in the voice of reason here. Yes. But she was in the Israeli military. She was in the Rayleigh military. Yeah. This movie does the exact same thing that it's complicated. Does which will get too soon? Where she's in the first thirty minutes allot. Nah. And then really kind of disappear. She pops back up like one more time one more time. But the first three minutes, you're just like great. We're going to have her as the voice of reason listening. Snow or person movie? It's a square. Yeah. You got Keaton Jack McDormand Pete all going to be at the house together. Right. One weekend. Thirty six months at all. Tolstoy geared in the middle of this movie. I love where he spent so much time on the first hour that these people are together and so much time on the first day, and then the first week, and then it just jumped six it's very it's very Jerry Maguire in that it's a five act movie with sort of surprising time jumps about people who fall in love and figure it out a lot longer away takes them a while to figure it, and this is where I really think you start to see the terrorist of okay? This is Nancy Meyer, storytelling style, and is distinctly different than the Meyers shyer collaborations because those movies kinda just run like clockwork. They're really good like glossy studio comedies adult studio comedies, right? But this has like, okay. There's no three extra here. This is just a series of movements that happen. And every time you watch like every time I would get to a scene where I was like, okay. This is the point in another movie. Like, you have them only realize they're in love with each other at the. Eighty five minute point. Then they get in a fight and ten minutes later, they come back together. And this movie has them realize they like each other and our in minutes, and I think it's like fifty four fifty five right there in love. But you just expect an overs in this movie is thirty minutes where they fight thirty minutes where they start to connect. And they realize they're in love he hurts her. They break up they come back together. And that last part takes ten minutes. Total ninety to one hundred movie, and this movie has an hour of her trying to make sense of what happened and him doing this aim. Yeah. Kind of ex mostly doesn't offscreen. Right. But then he has his fill in the blank. No. He's got some stuff some stuff. Yeah. David. Griffin. David. I'm moving you are moving. That's true. Yes. Got a new place. I got a new place and my mom asked me to do. I need to get betting for you. Because my mom's still rightly assumes. I don't do any just sleep on a bail of hay which to be fair. That's pretty much how I been sleeping during the, hey Baylor. Yes. Got that Brooklyn in a hook up. You know, what I'm saying you got the Brooklyn hookup Brooklyn in a hookup. It's are you talking about the sheets that were the winner of the best of online betting category. Good housekeeping. I only sleep on winters baby. It's got rave reviews from business insider, you're talking about the fastest growing bedding brand in the world. Even Armand white gave it a good review. And he's the king contrarian. Exactly. Because even though they're based in Brooklyn. These are typical New Yorkers because they live in the city, but never sleeps. But they bring you the best sleep ever. They actually like sleeping and also it's kind of fun and clever that it's like Brooklyn Brooklyn in Brooklyn Lynn, and you know, what I'm saying that's kind of fun on its intended. But you can have a little you can have a kick with that. You know? I do I do it every night. I've got Brooklyn ins, and you go to sleep going Brooklyn, Brooklyn Brooklyn in Brooklyn. Yeah. Yeah. That's what I do there. They are great. I do love them. I feel like of raved about every time we do spot. I mean this right in a fifty fifty. I might you might you might if there's a you can get married to sheets consider it. Yeah. I love my sheets. They're going to tell you about him. Well, they're luxury sheets that the luxury markup. They take out the middleman from designed to manufacturing to customer service. So it's like, you know, it's a lot cheaper than these kind of soft silky sheets. Usually are let me ask you does nearly headless Nick work for Brooklyn from Harry Potter the Griffin ghost. Yes. Might know. Why? Because I feel like there's an old fashioned spirit despite totally modernizing and old industry. You know, nearly headless Nick he's old right? Fashions, but exists in the present days modern. So you're saying Brooklyn has kind of a nearly headless Nick vibe, I'm saying there is an old fashioned spirit. I'm trying to figure if it is a literal old fashioned spirit. Okay. All right. My Brooklyn sheets the best most comfortable sheets I've ever slept on. And they've got an exclusive offer for blank, check listeners. You can get twenty dollars off not so loud. Okay.

I guess the first the first Nancy Meyers movie that I saw on theaters because it's weird people do as an outspoken fan of Nancy Meyers, I wouldn't call myself a fanatic fan Myers. It's sort of become a thing that my friends of Nomi force will if it comes up. It's like, what's your favorite Nancy Meyers movie? Right. And I don't know how to answer that. Because it's like, what do you mean by Nancy Meyers? And so I will always have to be like if we're picking from the entire filmography that she has written or directed written. And or directed. I would probably go with you know, I would jump back and forth between parent trap and baby. Boom. And then if you asked me, you know, what's my favorite Nancy Meyers directory left. I would say parent trap or something's gotta give. So I think the number one answer that is parent trap. That's kinda easy because it's just it's one of those movies that you see when you're twelve and it does something to you. And I will never I will never lose. My my love for that. I also think there's a sanction of like oh parent route might be your favorite movie that she directed. But someone's gotta give is the Nancy Meyers in a way is very anomalous like in right in the grand scheme of her career. So like, I get that. It doesn't really count. But my connect to the first Nancy Meyers movie that I saw in theatres is one of the movies she directed. And it was father of the bride part two right which I saw. Yeah. That I saw as a double feature with Toy Story. Really lovely. It was a really going really night. Yeah. I mean, we we've talked about our love for father, the by partout, and we talked about toys. So right now that one doesn't come up. Also love father of the bride partout as a kid. I had no idea who I guess they probably thought of as Steve Martin movie. But yes, it was very important to me and the rest of my connection. I I dunno. I baby boom was one of those movies. In as a child of the of the eighties in the nineties. So only. Understand sort of your your taste gets influenced by a by a wide variety of things. But I think one of those things that is lost. Now is that your taste sort of decided for you based on what channels you had? And so like, we didn't have a huge cable packet, but we had TBS TNT. And yes what baby boom was on all the time. And that was one. And of course, like some people would have seen baby-boom in skipped it. I haven't to be like, I'm interested. So you know, what does that say about about me? But baby boom was one that I watched a lot that I taped. And so I watch baby boom a lot mom like private Benjamin. So I watch private Benjamin I feel like I was similarly shaped by the Disney channel, which at that point had very little original programming and didn't have access most Disney movies, but they played parent trap all the time. And they also played before that father of the bride part to a lot. They never played part one. I probably seen part to like ten times. Same. I've seen maybe twice AB twenty two. I've seen so many fans, but. Like, I saw part two. I for sure it always felt like Disney channel only got the sequel things like I g short-circuit to so much to. Yeah. I've seen the first one once and I love the second one. Yeah. I think I love it. I love it. It's just baked into the person that young I feel like what's another one jumping Jack flash. I had a weird relationship with it was and the reason I watch and I remember why I watched it was because the the TV guide, and like the the San Antonio newspaper had you know, they they had the star ratings pulled in from something. I think it was probably like Leonard Maltin star ratings or like an all movies guide that they haven't accessed access to. And it was one of the few ones that I noticed being on a lot as like, you know, in the early nineties and it had one star. And I thought it was one of the movies that was one star only watch this bad movie. Yeah. And I ended up liking it. Yes. One start moving raid it but edited for television. That's like basically, a heist movie for kids. It's like a movie for children when you cut out the the language it's a children's move. And like Whoopi Goldberg is having the time of her life in that movie. And that was always fun from no has weird computer angle to it too. Washed siskel and Ebert recently where they were just reeling against I guess jumping Jack flash. And burglar came out back to back. Okay. I've never seen burglar. And they were like Lupis gotta stop making these dumb action movies right after the color purple. And they were like she's clearly one of the best actors, but she keeps on making these movies where she rides a motorcycle and wears black. Right. What was what was the Nancy's pen name for jumping? Jack lash. I don't don't don't. I don't know. I don't know that off my head. Dave have you seen baby-boom know? Should we do a bonus? Well, I don't know if we should add another one to the doctor for the troll fire ministers. But we could do is one that has continually come up when I see people writing about us getting ready to cover Nancy of I hope they do baby boom. And it feels like of the Shire Myers collaborations, that's the one that's sort of got her voice, the most and people love it. And it's fucking herald Ramos who talk out loud whenever he acts move. Who's who's the vet? Oh, God way. Oh, yeah. Shepherds shepherd shepherd. I also for every Shire movie that I've seen which is the bride the bright partout. And I love trouble. I love triple is very popular in in my family for some reason than a wise weird. It's like those those I don't know how to categorize those things, but they exist. I don't know why I love trouble is my life, but it is a real video store movie. Yeah. The poster was up. Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte. I don't know they love trouble. Jeff Mike Ryan past pest Fisher gas friend of this show. Once I Trevor who it was but referred to some director as a three star general. That's pretty good. I feel like is what you could cultural Shire, which is like if you puff into a blockbuster. And he rented a Shire three stars. You just have a nice time. Right. You know, he's start. Start. The only keeps the ship's running only Shire film that well Alfie is weird. Actual these weird have seen Alfie. I'd never seen Alfie movie the affair of the necklace. I have not seen that was an. Plot. Yes. But it was also him going way out of his comfort zone with a star. Who is also out of her comfort. Right. It's like two out of conference on people and him. I think trying to figure out what his identity is without Nancy. I mean, that's that felt like, you know, but we're not here to talk Shire. We're not we're here to talk. It's gotta give. Yes. Got a gaffe. Did you see it in theaters? Did you did every I saw the Saturday at opened with my sister and very excited. I saw it with my mom and brother, the whole family went to something's got my dad got it was definitely like a family outing to see something's gotta give. I watched it on VHS with my mom, and we both didn't like it. I like it either. Yeah. I like loved it. I was a big Oscar watcher this movie came on no three I knew it was an Oscar tipped film. The key thing. There was so much from from the gecko just like, and there was for the two thousand especially it would feel like every year would come down to. Here's a veteran. Actress getting the best role of the latter half of her career versus here's a young on new turning series for the first time, and you'd have your Sissy space versus Halle Berry, or you're like double Annette Benning versus Hillary swanks. And then this year was like they're on Keaton thing, and it was like are they going to give her the second Oskar forgetting them back or are they going to crown there on the new person? But it felt like a two-horse race the entire fall. Like Keaton could've won. I think she had a shot. But she like the other person you mentioned just now basis was eventually undone by the fact that she has an Oscar yet. And so whatever Charlie's took it Halley took two years in a row, you're actually those are back to back years and the swanks around there. Right. Two thousand two thousand two. Kidman Kidman that was a weird because that was the tourist racist Kidman more who are contemporaries. Yeah. Yeah. Been just had the big movie in the glam. She won by knows. Do you? Remember, he said that. Of course, I do who was way. Who was? Oh donzel. Yeah. That was the other one was I think that was. Yeah. That was the Chicago year chasms air Jones wins best supporting actress, and Sean Connery presents it in you cannot make out what he's saying. At a party, we clean Latifah just with she went winner as cash ring. That's right. Just at a first name, and it sounded like knees. He's Scottish she's well she was. I believe she was the first award of the night in the winter is a moment. You know, when they have the five like the end, they'll have the zoom in on the one who's one it's your five sort of close ups, right? Latifah and zeta-jones were right next to each other and the camera zooming, and it looked like it was Latifah. And I was at like an Oscar party with my parents and everyone started screaming because for half a second. We were like Queen Latifah just won the Academy Award for best supporting actress, and we were all so excited. Didn't she did Catherine Zeta Jones? There's also some Oscars right around then that opened with like probably a mono literally opens with Sean Connery coming out and going like movie. Good. Bullshit model like a movie, and then he's like please enjoy and they just showed up montage of movies. It might have been like the seventy might have been some milestone Scher's. Sean Connery impression sounds like mother baby. Sean Connery come movie. Sure. Movie movie show much dumb movie. I wish I could find I'll always fall for those those movies montages the like like last year. It's always in the hood to Ben Hur. Maybe half of them were like, why are we doing this and half of them were like, I I really like, I think we all agree three minutes. We'd never want like the idea that the Oscars should be short is sort of deranged. I'm gonna I'm gonna broach difficult subject because I think we're the kind of big dummy who love those montages watch five million of them if they made them their own, right? We would watch it and tape it and rewatch it, right? But when. Should movie baby bottle? But when they say like, oh, we want the telecast of shorter, and we're going to cut out a bunch of the below the line awards. I'm just like then cut the fucking montages. Like, I love the montage, but feels more disrespectful to cut those from the ceremony when we know that's what pads out the show, but honestly, they wanna cut eight award. It's like they that there's not enough time in the montages for them to save. But they're going to cut so many remember two thousand nine they literally did a montage for each different genre. They were attributed hor hand why John Hughes year where they also had a John Hughes specific montage and had mccully clock in and Judd, Nelson Amelio all like give testimonies, and I was like fuck what are you doing? I don't know. I don't know. Shankman produce. I got no beef with montages. I love him. I mean was shankman the one who introduced the the weird panel of like former winners who was like when they did it two years. It was that was the year before but they twice. Yes. And then they had to have like the people on stage. Remember that the nominee offer my correction? They did that one eight was past winners where it was like heath ledger, quote, unquote, got his Oscar Kevin Kline gray nominee was given a speech by it wasn't even the like, right? 'cause I remember we're gonna junior talking to Robert Downey junior anger that he was still enrolls from the brothers. Yes. But then two thousand nine it wasn't past winners. It was people. They had worked. It was just Powells because it was Colin Farrell talking about the hydrants that he and Jeremy Renner got into during swat. Yes. That's right. It's right. Jeremy? What I don't remember. Yeah. God at the Oscars there. So. Movie show movies. You're like one of the first people. I mean, this is the cornerstone of a Mike transhipped with David in this podcast existing, but Bobby you're like one of the first people where like our friends like set us up, and we're like you guys should hang out. Yeah. We had a real friend day. We talked to we about this. Online chat went to a bar and talked hours. Yes. Because I've got so into talking about the marginal you of movie culture, like the montages and shit. It was it was very pleasant. And I also feel like you're kind of I feel like there's a lot more internet love for Nancy Meyers. Now, I see a lot more people Jing like the Diane crying at the computer gift. There was a mean thing last year where people were like cast your own holiday, remake Likud you're for actors. I feel like you're the one of the first people I saw on the internet in a very funny way sort of like making your phantom of rom coms and like like studios nineties like comedies feel like like fucking Star Wars phantom or something. I think. I mean, certainly among my friends, and it didn't it didn't feel like I was any sort of an anomaly or outlier, but I think that might have to do with. Earnestness. And like, yeah, I'm guilty pleasures are sort of in vogue now. Because it's like, we let's just be honest with ourselves with what we like, let's let's try not to be too condescending towards these things that maybe we feel guilty about liking. And so it's like, you know, what I do like when the holidays on. I do like it when something's gotta give his on. Yeah. And maybe it was easy to look down on those movies at the time. And I think that might I mean that doesn't really count here. But I think that might explain why why there's been more Nancy love and also that the narrative around the intern really really helped her that was the one that turns she never she never really had the opportunity to tell her story, and she has so open about how hard it was for her to make that movie, and how much of a triumph that was for her personally just as as a director as a woman in the industry, and when people heard that framing I think it it gave them permission to revisit all of her movies with that. I and say like it's kind of sounding that she made any. Of these. Yes. Right. And especially right, especially the and also as time has gone on we've gotten less than less of this kind of movie, so we're four so you go like the intern like their couple things happen as she's telling the story be the movie doesn't have the same of success earlier films. Although did all right. And then you go like, okay. But this kind of feels like a death knell to this type of film, which was already pretty much dying off. We don't get them anymore. Then you have the rise of the conversation about the lack of female directors in Hollywood where people are like, maybe we didn't appreciate her when we had her, right? Yeah. Maybe we didn't appreciate this genre. The style of making these flake comedies while we still had them. We wrote them off as being like, oh, you know. It's like a fun rainy day move. But it's not good. Like, I feel like she's one of those filmmakers, even the people who liked her movies, so often had to couch it in like a good movie. But like, I just it makes me feel good. And now, we're more comfortable saying, it's a good movie. Right. I think you're just I'm not saying you're the first person to do this. But I just feel like with the fact that you're you're always were able to make good. Content about it. But that you were just like I'm gonna have. No shame about these very interesting. My love for them talk about how deeply I think about them the same way that people think about like all the background aliens at the Star Wars Cantina. And I think about you doing your video that was for Albert knobs where did the video of Glenn Close losing another Oscar, and you compiled all the footage of her being hearing that someone on and very graciously. James BOND trailer. Oh my God. I completely forgot I use the movie template. Right. You said riffing Glenn Close is going to lose again this year. And I'm like, wow. Someone else thinks that much about this. 'cause I knew the day. The the academy started putting up all the old clips on YouTube. I just compulsively rewatch every like acting winner and watch all five of their faces this time, I'm just gonna. Reacting. And you just like, I don't know. I just think it's all tied to sort of cultural. You guys should have been on the board with home saying 'cause I was doing that shit my whole teenage life. I was on over the boards. I was on the right board Oscar board because on the Oscar boards. It was literally like, well, there's four acknowledged factions. Yeah. The coal Kidman Julianne Moore. Cape Lynch, and then there was a fourth one. There were four actresses who had such intense fan bases that they would do battle on the board, and Nicole and Julianne where queens. Yes. And Kate was seen as the if you a Kate fan. It was like sorry about Veronica Garin Sweden. Kate was like the lame one. Yeah. Because she doesn't bounce back until she wins. The Oscar that's starts getting like really Plum roles before then she was kind of doing stuff like the missing like I think she wasn't seen as quo for awhile. Which is I. List ones. But they were like, oh, she's like a good respectable act. Who's the fourth who's the fourth other obvious sort of like Renee Zellweger is insane. Is that right? Yeah. And like and like, so you, and I was I was not on these boards to stand for an actress would watch like maelstrom happen every year. Yeah. Anyway, I remember four was the one year where I would would lurk. Sure. And I would feel like every there was always boards find to be boards, or no, I'm trying to think it would have been this was when all the sites still had Oscar in their name before the Oscars Lee Oscar watch would learn. I would daily right. I did. I didn't do I didn't do the the awards boards. I was I was a very active poster on the the old original rotten tomatoes boards Tristan. They're all gone the archives band. It was like two thousand to two thousand six five or six very I cannot reveal just in case. It wasn't sure. Just like, I'm very worried that those still exist. There's nothing embarrassing. It's just like, oh, there's nothing offensive. You. Don't want to be spent I would spend hours on like Photoshop contests. Yes. Like where it's like, oh, I can't even get into it. It's really, humid. I know I was gonna say I think this movie was one of the few successful versions of this phenomenon. There was always a thing. If there was like, a big glossy somewhat adult oriented studio comedy coming out in like Tober, November December it would get lumped into the awards conversation because they'd be like wolf they're releasing it in the fall, and then it would. And be like, no, this isn't an Oscar movie, and this is one of the few times where like it did actually result in like a major candidate. And and it was just she got the nomination. But he didn't he only. Yeah. Yeah. She deserved it. And he's like doing Jack in this. Like, you know, that's that's why he was penalized. Watching the movie how much his performance feels like someone doing an impression of Jack Nicholson. I I think he's a metal it feels hollow. All the beat so hard, which is what the Moos ask him to do hospital. Seems are so good very good enough. I mean as we've talked about on the terms of deer endearment, he's so good at at letting himself be like vulnerable and like foolish like there's a lack of vanity for which is rare for guys male leading men who become that successful and become sex symbols. Even on, you know, surprising terms. He always sort of yet. There's something about the way he carries his sexiness. In a way that like he's surprised by very he's he's humble timely. He owns his airline starts, and they sit him down to like, what's your deal? He's just like. Yeah. Shrug. Oh my God. Dude. Look at this handsome, FOX. Oh, this FOX is kind of sexy.

I've watched something's gotta give since I've liked it more. It wasn't until maybe third or fourth time that I was fully in its fully in its corner. But every single time I watch it. I'm surprised by butterfly. Oh. As as those Oscars that I don't remember these specific euro began with Sean Connery going the movies this begins which I knew just being like ladies. Yeah. Kinda love like while. Butterfly plays a bunch of random ladies walk around like a New York City block like in dresses and heels. Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking. Ratio. I found I was like I'm just gonna look I'm gonna see if I can find a PDF of the script somewhere online. Usually this is pretty easy to do. And I found one written in two thousand two and I saw I just wanted to see how she envisioned the opening. Yeah. She includes a song choice. Really? And it's not butterfly. Really? Oh, it's an ANSI Myers. Do you know what it is drowning pool at the price of? Close. She wrote Nancy Meyers penned the words JAL rule. Limit up. Wow. Wow. It would have been better would have been better. Terrible Choi, maybe more expensive. Really, she envisioned a very temporary song that was like she had heard on the radio was like, you know, what like Halley turned it on. But is like sort of like way past its prime at this point already. What Orange County is to that sounds Orange County makes the running joke of everyone's listening to butterfly Colin Hanks zero take a bite, and they played the song like five times in the move around long enough that it was a joke. I mean this song came in two thousand right? Yeah. Like, it's insane spire. Yes. Crazy town had been stuck around right homeless like the classics at love crazy town. He's crazy. This movie opens with butterfly crazy town. Yes. A montage of hotties walking around the social New York and just says that he likes and just like wait a second and the last and this on the credits is Levin rose. Yeah. There's another weird play. Like maroon five song. There's modern pop song in it that feels very this love. It's the Sunday morning from. But then no, then we. From that to write like, a Nicholson Pete in the most insane green screen car journey and they're discussing their trip to the Hamptons, I guess, and you're just like what is this movie? And she says also a great a great moment of Nancy Meyers almost being self aware. But not quite crossing the finish line where he's like, oh, so your mom's rich and Amanda, peach like, no. Jack Nicholson's, we'll know she is like, well, whatever, I don't know. No, no, she just wrote a few plays. And he's like if she lives here. She's ready. I do like that. I do like that where she lives within two zip codes of here. Whatever you say like a hundred miles something like the Hamptons like she is rich, right? I do like that. Not like, Amanda Peet is so used to exorbitant wealth that she doesn't have an understanding of what money. She thinks that's that's baseline money time anything and man of character. The doctor Vichy doctor who flying through space. The marriage and her pregnancy. Make no sense, Dr Dolittle has a little grace under pressure than Amanda Peet who tricks out when her many years, divorced father decides to data woman, which feels very tied to is complicated, and feels very Halley where it's like, I think Nancy Meyers perception of how children process a divorce is entirely based on her children because it's complicated, which we will get to write basically, the kids are like it's been fifteen years over dot over very specific career kid is California. King the comforter. Yes, sobbing we can't. I mean, I. It's really it's complicates. So they're going to Hamptons, which is a three hour drive from New York's? But clearly they've done that they decided to drive right. And so you don't want to take the sheet knee. They they went there. They've gone there to have sex which they have not yet done so weird. They're so excited to have sex muscial this movie that they never have said, do you think that's just because Myers makes that clear three times the movie? Yes. But it feels very odd that I think she just knows the audience would not get right? I think that's why right does feel odd for the Jack Nicholson character to be committing to going to the Hamptons Seder mom's place, if they haven't slept together yet, and they're referring to each other as boyfriend and girlfriend. I he's sort of supposed to be because like so Myers makes a lot of movies as we talked about what women want about this like kind of sleazy guy. But like she's like hike at the appeal of this guy called win win. Abson and Nicholson, and then deniro's different kind. But also where she still sort of doing this thing like, you know, whatever happened the last gentleman like, yeah. And like, I think she's like this guy likes to sleep under ladies or what you know. He likes the sort of he likes to be useful. Right. Right. But he still has that sort of like classy guy vibe where he's like, whatever you want, and he'll like buy you champagne or something, right? We'll about hand hacky all the sort of nastiness more like rap pack. He's got a rapidly. Do they say the name of his label? It's a drive by driving by record right, which Hello, Nancy my. Yeah. You know, what we buy spots, right? I I've never really been bothered by by the fact that they hadn't had sex yet. No, really. And like you said it really does. It's just feel like she wants us to know. Yes. Sort of you. You get it you get his character. So it's like, oh, no I'm gonna I'm gonna give her this. Yeah. I also it's just a line. She knows they can't cross comeback from right? Where were we also the Hamptons, they're gonna bone in the least sexy like he's I think there's only like an ubaid he because she on a swim shit. Right. Yeah. She unzips. Yeah. She's gonna go get changed. He's like I'm gonna take up my pants and going to the kitchen penson checks out the fridge, his loose-fitting, Oxford shirt and Diane walks in with Francis dorm, and they have a knife. And they call the Cobb, a great, I love I love you see some touch down some old man Jewish. They're flipping out Francis. Mckee doorman was in his early military thing that has never brought up again. Yes. Yes. She's a lesbian feminist studies. Professor from Columbia. Did you see that on on Wikipedia allows lesbian women's studies? Professor never call. Her lesbian Wikipedia is like a less. Byan and it's like. The one allusion to what the fuck did. Where where she's like? I mean, he's not for me. Like what it right where she sort of is a winking. I like it's nineteen thirties as code movie that can only talk around it. So and so, and then I guess what they all just they're all just like, well, we're grown up. So we can all just stay on his giant house together. I guess that's. That's. Keaton and McDermott or saying they want to leave yet woven all you can have it. And then they say, no, you have it. And they say, you know, what? Let's all the misunderstandings. Ridiculous. Pete's like I thought you weren't going to be here because you said you were writing and Keaton's like, well, I was gonna right here. And I'm gonna phone. The writing desk where all of her writing maturely she wants to write in the Hamptons Zion. That's very texting and AM at their multiple forms of communication. They don't check in with each other at all. They don't take. It's just just five more minutes of work on the misunderstanding. That's all I want for Pete and Nicholson, this is like a teen comedy where it's like we're going go to parents cabin this weekend. I think this is the night. Right. But the idea of like Saturday finally, it's sex night. Then they get after noon. Right. And they are like, no, it's fine. You can stay then go into the bedroom. Like, well, let's continue with our plans turn on Marvin Gaye almost immediately in the daylight just after arriving and having his Weiner seen by two other women. He's got the underwear on scene. I thought this. When did they say the Turkish when he's in the hospital? I thought you double cushion this picture. He's got boxers on. Fair enough. It's he doesn't wanna play saw scams. They do his sticks pegs, and they're all in the house together. And I guess they just have dinner because it's really just the the crucial scene is that they have dinner beautiful dinner beautify spaghetti. They serve it in the in the big beautiful bowl. Yeah. And the dinners essentially like so what the fuck Jack Nicholson. You never been married daughter is is that she's read this profile. He's a scape. The news, quote, unquote. Right. Yeah. New York magazine. Yeah. I love New York magazine reference like a because that happens in when Sally too. It's like, oh, I read in New York magazine while like the the white people in New Yorker eating dinner together we have to add in. What did you read a New York magazine you read about him? Okay. Great. He's he's a womanizer womanizer famous womanizer. He's responding to every question with like, what are you gonna do? That's one of the things. I love about that scene. It's not no one is everyone is aware of how weird it is. But everyone's approaching it like kind of like humorously, they're like this is weird. Let's recognize that this is weird. And I liked it. The movie allows that. Then when they tip toe up till like conflict Ville, kinda then tiptoe away Nicholson will be like all right, and these I'm sorry. I'm so, you know, they all there is that sort of in your politeness that even though we get the idea that Erica Nike is, you know, a plug person in some ways that she knows. She can't just literally be like Fraser sure to sleep with my daughters. Do that. Right. And also this this happens in it's complicated too. But it's Nancy likes. She likes a peppering in a little like progressive ideas and progressive thoughts about like relationships and sex. But then she never quite crosses the finish line. Like, she introduces that like these are some liberal people, and these are people who have like very open wind feelings about sex at the end of the day. Like, she could never handle her daughter fucking the same guy. She she could never handle these things you could never on red line. Yeah. She's still. Complicated shoes. And. Yeah. So she wants me in the pen one. But she also yearns to have this sort of normal monogamous domestic lists of Nicholson. They sleep together. Yeah. We're talking about the dinner the dinner spaghetti bowl diamond chills. Like a good time to cut to our remote. Correspondent oh, sure. My sister Romley Newman, a longtime sister mine Nancy Meyers fan food expert does a segment once purpose of culprits kitchen corner. So we're going to cut over live to her now. Welcome to Romney's kitchen Cohen a- and Harry's your host miss Romney Neiman in kitchen. Hello. I'm just slicing some onions, and my kitchen, this is my favorite Nancy Meyers kitchen by far just because I think it looks like what Nancy Meyers kitchen probably looks like. But also, this is the most kitchen heavy movie out of any Nancy Meyers movie, probably any movie ever. There's a lot of time spent in that kitchen. There's an amazing Viking range huge island a lot of fruit in bowls a lot of fresh cut flowers. I mean, this is what I dream of at night. But it's a really good kitchen. It's a really good design kitchen and to things a lot of cookbooks. You know, dying Keenan's cooking kitchen. Maybe hungry. Yep. Thank you round makes room. So then they go to play Marvin Gaye and fuck while McDormand and Keaton are still at the table, and you believe like they're fucking right now McDormand has her big monologue where she like on packs like she's a women's study. Right. Yeah. I know which is a little like this. You're just realizing whatever it doesn't matter. She has her big statement. He kind of model, and I think we'd dobermans great. Yes. Maybe funny. She so rarely plays just like a person, and she's basically pleading person you could imagine like going to a restaurant and like eating some food. Didn't make me wish he would do more movies like this like not at the exclusion of other films. But it's like, it'd be nice. If like McDermott did like a big comedy, once it's a very it's a very friends with money performance, but the darkness because like 'cause Francis McDermott has lines where she can have a lot of fun. But then it's like, oh, this is a little too real fully embrace the right representation. Just like I feel like the Oscar. Season. Lest your turn into an elemental in my eyes. Like, I just can't think of inclusion writer. Yes. I do love her though. And then he has art attack heart attack, Jess and heart attack, heart attack at first they think he looks like shit this screams are screams of joy and pleasure in ecstasy than we realize. Oh, in fact, a man has passed out. Right. And Diane delivers the immortal line you fucking man, which I love this is that's when the movie, basically like it's like fast and furious. Like, we've kicked into by like the fifth year they've hit the non I'm so happy with she says you fucking man. And and then he goes to hospital and who's there, but Jonah Reeves guy is so fucking hot in this movie. All right, so yes, go on Robbie sorry. No. I'm just agreeing canneries is so fucking when he shows up in this movie. It's a little alarming like who is this alabaster. Like, maybe the best hair. Anyone has ever to of? It's one of his best one of his best looks. Yeah. Yeah. That weird suit that he wears to the the date that he gets stood up. Yes. Strange strange, very pastel suit white suit. That's true. He's he's like went into his SIMS war driven picked casual. But like if you like to a full shot of him in his feet were like one two inches off the ground, Hungary. It'd be like he's sort of like age is this a remake of Michael. No, that's Ephron. I know the the head hairdresser on the tick is Kiana news like Goto hair person now, and I just always great had to hold back from being like I said feel like ask her questions about I'll say this like yes platform, I would love to use to shout. This to the rafters every story. I have heard from everyone who has worked with Kiana anyone who's worked to Canada any capacities. That's the fucking greatest guy. Like there like there is no one kind of heard similar collaborative. He looks out for fucking everyone on said he takes such good care of everybody. I've only ever heard good things about him. Also, the he like likes movies and watches lots of them, and he'd like release supports people like, you know, he'd like runs a set like a president in terms of being like, I will not let anyone suffer like, you know, the president current not like our cartoon president way by you're gonna send Trump. What was I going to say I read? I guess nothing. Yeah. I like them a lot of haven't seen destination wedding. But I will. Yeah. I mean, I will see that as it deserves to be seen like on Amazon prime. I try to watch it VOD and in a country house upstate with my mother. And I was just like I can't do this because she's going to scoff at it. I need to watch just. Because I'm gonna love it. So I do have a slight read on this movie that it is about like, essentially, Jack Nicholson like having a heavenly experience after possibly dying or at least, you know. Flat lining. I look I had the notion watching it rewatching it this morning that they're very few moves that commit so hard to their color palette being white, right? It's the whiteness and not even. Were like really white. And like when they're on the beach. They're both wearing white the San looks white. Yes. The sky looks white. 'cause like it looks like a heaven set movie. It looks like defending your life or something. The plot is at this point. It's what you can't go anywhere. You gotta recuperate the only place you can be as this Hampton Thome with Diane loan, and she's going to be all in white and everything's gonna be white. And you're kinda going to be trapped like a weird way weird sort of misery. Yeah. It's it's almost like it's like, your spiritual rebirth begins here, Jack like, you know, like he can't leave and. Literally Michael east. Right. His where she starts her look. Yes. This is where she starts her look wrong talking about the kids, and this is the first real kit. Yeah. I wanted to ask you you too about this. I feel like I don't have a my I might not be as trained as it as it could be. But how much of those beach scenes were on the beach. And how many of them were like weird some really because a lot of them are like, oh, they're on the beach. And some of them are like, I think you might be on the beach. But the sky is this guy looks sometimes it's like, I think you are in a sound stage in green point. I don't know. Why is a lot of weird CGI? She uses a lot of CGI, I'll get into some next up. So, but I heard from liable sources that the holiday cost one hundred million dollars and twenty plus we're CGI. Geez. She she like, I think I mean to some degree. I think it's the control thing. I don't think we really talked about this this macer is. But she does have a rep. Yeah. Tation from everyone. I know who's worked with her talking again about like reputations. Crews and stuff right of just being an insane. Perfectionist micromanage every. Every fucking time. And in like a to a David fincher Kubrick degree, but whereas those guys are lauded for like cure, take some like days to shoot one page because every detail matters. Most of the crew guys are talked to work with Nancy Mars like yeah. That shit can make up a fucking mind. And it's like, but you like it when it's like blood splatter a wall, and you don't like it because you think it's a turtleneck, and it doesn't matter. She's picking between eighteen different white portal necks. But to some degree, I think her use of CGI backgrounds, isn't like will. They couldn't go and film in that place. I think it's more that she wants more perfect. Look like. Right. It might be some combination of touching up the image. They actually create because there are so many moments. I mean, the car feels like okay, they didn't wanna shoot in a moving vehicle. That's fine. They see GI the background in the car. But then there's so many other moments where they step out of a door. And you're like that block looks like flubber or a us in purgatory. Yes. Anyway, I like this theory this theory, also if it's the only way to explain just the strangest of Nancy Meyers is university. The entire universe is like it's it's not ours light zone episodes or people have like tests of their moral integrity. Because just because it's literally about like Jack Nicholson entering the situation when being like everyone to not do this phone. I never thought about it. Well, only Jack very famously like womanizer, you know, like, the the great American lover of the seventies and the eighties and Djelic was the person who it seemed like, oh, he might actually settle down with her. They were together for a long time. And then he got another woman pregnant, and that's the only time he's ever been married. Yes. Had two kids with her. I think Rebecca Broussard. Yes. Lorraine and Raymond. And of course, Amy Nicholson is his daughter, right? Previously established on her episode. Yes. That marriage less that marriage lasted for five years eighty nine hundred ninety. But that really felt like it was a I want the children to have a proper. I don't wanna project. But my parents felt like it was like he got someone pregnant in an affair. Outside of his longtime relationship with indelicate Houston, wanted the kids to be in a stable home and hasn't remarried since then Diane Keaton is more of the Nicholson in this case, and that she has never been married, and it's sure she is actually the lifelong bachelor twenty plus years ago. She was like, I'm just gonna Dopp kits right? I don't ever want to have a husband. I just wanna raise kids on my own. And she did it's interesting that I feel like their reputations are kind of flipped in terms of the public perception because she's another person had all these super famous long-term relationships with collaborators dated what he owned Warren Beatty Alpa, chino, right? Those are the three big ones each them for a long time. And then we've heard the apparent day canneries after this movie, which isn't really didn't know that. I know that we have been told that we've been told that it would later operated like for a little brief. I think for a little brief like a summer a summer. Just had to give. Reason to like Yona Reeves, I know, right? I I'm sure you guys read like the couple interviews Nicholson's done the last couple years where he talks about like. Yeah. I wonder if I fucked it up, and he's like, you know, I'm like eight years old, and I sleep alone in a bed, and I wonder if I had too much fun at the expense of ever actually building life from my style say like when you watch him in this movie like doing the more vulnerable stuff like where he's sort of hobbling around the hospital and afterwards and stuff like when he falls over in the parking lot outside the hospital. I'm thinking like God. I want him to do like that Tony urban remake or something. Like, I want Jack to do one more thing. Like you compare like him to bady, right? Those were like the two major Hollywood love is time. And then Beatty like settles down hard with an men. And and he was just like, yeah. You know, I was like old. I'm not gonna like do this all the time. I met a woman I loved we had a bunch of kids. I'm really happy and Nicholson just never. Slowed down like like, I think his date to the premiere of this movie was pas, Delaware. Really? It was either this one or the one. Puzzle. Where two would have been maybe he was a party puzzle to win to my high school graduate. I got there. It was either the departed or this. I remember the he would would've been nineteen when this movie came out. So that would have been a baiter played by the departed, maybe she was twenty one. But it was like everyone at school was to DC Nicholson brought to the fucking red carpet last night. I'm looking either os six or four zero three. Right. So it was six zero three. She's either nineteen she's twenty. Yes. Oh, six okay. Seen pictures of his kids at the premiere picture of him at the cigarette in his mouth. Amanda, pete. When's the last time he did like the thing where he sits at the front of the Oscars with the sunglasses? I think it was the last one. Yeah. No. You knew what it was the last time was he he's the one who his crash right winning. Then two thousand two thousand six was a crystal. Remember the year we also came out and his head was totally shaved and everyone's freaked out by the bucket list. Yes. The last time I remember being around because bucket was right? So there's no six. Yeah. I mean, the point is just after he's made this movie that sort of about the Jack Nicholson type reckoning with the lack of substance to his like ripping through ladies lifestyle. He still continues to take twenty one year olds and twenty two year olds as his date the premiere of movies about the fact that he should have settled down because he didn't take Nancy Meyer serious. Right. I know he should've we relaunched. Intervention for movie. He's like forty percent of the way to his departed performance. There are moments of media. Yeah. I mean, I love his departure performance. I think you're staring down bullet of a gun. I those that seeing those scenes that part of where he's just sitting at back last table picks up a severed hand in a bag for some reason. Like those scenes are amazed. That was another one where people kind of punish them because they were like, Jack, Jack right there just like he can't being traded. Didn't get the Oscar right. Like, the only modern one. He gets the nomination for is About Schmidt. Really against type. Yes, never my dad's them being like, it's weird. He never turns into Jack. I sat there the whole time waiting for the scene where he's going to Jack out you imagine that like when he gets to the wedding. He's gonna lose it. And he's restrained. The whole time the twentieth. I mean, it's like that is the one way that movie being remade was exciting. No. I know I want them to remake Tonio is it is it going to be removed. Doubt. It was going to happen with him and Kristen wig, and Lena Dunham was writing it which any Kohner day dropped out. But now, what's your kids are Albright supposed to direct it? But I think when she got a toe Dinka. Yes. It was noted that Nicholson had was no attached. So they hired troll Danko after Nicholson dropping out. So like, maybe she could lure him back to me. He's kind of the appeal of doing that movie because who else could do that where it would work and it would make Murray. Oh murray. Right. Yes. But like even who else from that generation are surrounding that like I mean look at foreign baby wants to do. He's going to say, right, Redford. That'd be great. If he unretired here. Yeah. But I'm only going to wear the weird furry monster suit the whole time or they just make it another Kevin Hart movie. Yeah. Right. Eddie Murphy got anymore. I'm trying to think of people who are just kind of like adrift right now, he's gonna make a fucking grumpy old men remake. And I was like is that one of those things we're old people looked older back that I think it is. And I looked it up and he's literally seventeen years younger. Oh than the younger of the two was then lemon was. So it's like, no, we shouldn't. Yeah. He's not old enough yet. He's not. I just assumed that was the case. I was like, oh that's weird. We felt like he was sold. But was actually just sixty. Yeah. It's like like the golden girls were thirty six when they get. He was so young Jacqueline was born in nineteen twenty five. Yes. And he was born in sixty one. So we. Yeah. Wait a little longer. Eddie, right. Only fifty seven and not that old and Jack Lemmon was I believe like seventy two in that first, right? Mid seventies. Grumpy he his and Margaret God firecrackers that one. So what happens if something's gotta give? Going in the house, right? He's been they say, he's got us. Stay resit in. Little or you can go, right? But Amanda Pete doesn't want to stay put there. No. She's got auctions to hold so busy up at Christie's. Yeah. Rockefeller Center Zoe has to reenlist as a masonic. So to be part of like operation sworn vengeance. Rank. She's Keaton's like you expect me to be in the house with him, which does sound like a very broad comedy premise, which is like two people couldn't see different. I like. Oh, it's abroad company because Jon Favreau is there and the the the lady assistant like line who has one line, but a very high Bill Jon Favreau with less than fifteen words of. But he's seen where he likes his crying almost happy that he's still alive. But then they're like, anyway, we gotta go. So that it is. Clash in a house. This be them arguing and the only fall in love at the end, she's writing and he wants to smoke cigars and listen to rap music, right? What else you on the phone and just be on the young kids? Yeah. One thing. I didn't. That's the Garcin. I mean, and I've seen this movie a million times, and I still forgotten. I was like what is she doing with this glass? Like, how did he know that that's what she wanted from him to drop the cigar in the glass, a fully like a barely smoked cigar? It's not this intuitive thing anytime, I watch it. And it's like, okay. I guess that makes sense could just put it out. Yeah. Like a normal person. Also, I if you notice there's a little bit of I don't know if it's food or just cigar ash on the on the bed as he's lying there on the phone. It was whoever. And it's like, I wonder how tough that was for Nancy or if it like knowing what I know now perfectionist it's like how much ash did. She was okay. Like how much is too much? How how little is too little the the extreme end point of the perfectionism? I've heard is that like her movies all go way over schedule way over budget. Right. So like the intern apparently went like two full months over schedule. That's great. And they. Had all these injured shots I had to shoot with a second unit. And they were like Nancy. You cannot be onset. Like, we need to just get these done. This has to be sync day and she insisted on sending her assistant over to set with an ipad, and she faced timed in to prove every detail on the answer, they wouldn't allow her onset. And she was like I'm not gonna have insert shots that don't fit into my aesthetic of the world. I respect that. I learned after ANSI. Yeah. I love it. So how did they get to like each other? I guess she realizes he's like a real person. They go shopping. They talk about rap music, and he never, and it's and it's sort of implied that he never has these sorts of comedy. He doesn't Iraq never really has connections with people that are more than superficial. Right. So it's like, hey, if this if this kind of womanizer asshole, man, just gives a woman a chance like he'll change. They'll chain seems have a pretty small isolated circle. She spends a lot of time writing in the house by herself her biggest creative partners or ex husband or best friend is her sister. And her other best friend is her daughter, right? We should say your husband is played by Starsky. Yes. Yes. Right. Not hutch Starsky who also directed Kazan true micro laser who is playing a guy that like I'd love to be. Yes, when I'm fifty five or whatever your callers, my callers up my sunglasses attached croak around the neck. I look like pretty good. Like, I've got a trainer something. I'm trying to Jimmy days a week. No. I'm pretty chill about it. And. Yeah, try and in touch with the kids listen to. But like, I know I'm an older guy. I it's just like that specific kind of LA Jewish guy who's just like at the bar, mitzvahs and stuff and got his Lacoste shirt. Sabrina next dad is cool. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Hey, you guys want pizza? So he's got pizza. So he's he's sort of floating around. What do you? What is your agent director? Right. Right, right. He writes, the place he directs them married him because her life is so small the only men she ever loved were the was the one. Charles shyer. This feels very Nancy. Yeah. And it's also one of the one of the reasons that it that it works is that she doesn't have the movies that our biggest failures don't have an ANSI parallel. And so in terms of the directory leopards like the holiday really doesn't have one. Yeah. I. Suffers holiday isn't really want doesn't have one hell is not Nancy Meyers. He's a fascinating character. But she's definitely not an ANSI. Well, except for like the divorce. I. There's some the internet's like they're both Nancy there there Nancy split to is that like Hathaway's like the adventures of young Nancy. Yeah. The intern is a triumph. Yeah. The the quote on the VHS box triumph credit. This one is just Nancy his purist, Nancy, right way. And again, it makes sense for her. I like pure Nancy written and directed by Nancy movie would be like her really wrestling with like Mansi, it's her it's her using very openly using herself as the parallel and very openly using Jack Nicholson as Jack Nicholson like we were talking about earlier, but the the call out to what is his line. You are what is the woman were women to love your woman to love. It must have been a reference to you make me wanna be a better man, which had become one of his most iconic lines where she sort of swept up in it. And. And there's that seem right? Where does he get all those wonderful toys any calls her Batman mother fucking? That's back to some of his earlier work like five pieces. What I was gonna say is. 'cause you guys are asking. How do they start to like each other? The big thing that jumped out to me was aim right? They hop on him. They help on aim right? There's a little chemistry even in that first bedroom seen though when he when he turtlenecks. Yeah. Yeah. And it's just like these haven't had these conversations July. Yeah. Why turtle? They don't talk like this to anyone else. Well, the thing that jumped asked me, I was watching the movie with much at home. I like to watch with subtitles. Because you never know what kind of sounds awesome ice visually, see the writing. And a thing that popped out to me was how many times they say me too. And puff. That's because me too is. Now a phrase with a lot of weight behind it. I just realized how often in this movie with the two of them together one themselves, something and the other one goes me too. And it's this notion that they've never talked to someone else who has the same perspective on certain things. Even though they seem so different on the surface things like them not sleeping. There's so much of them Mirroring each other and surprise, and that kind of way, and you go like, okay Keaton's life is this tiny little bubble. The only man she ever loved is the man that she worked and still works with the only man she ever loved and key Nicholson's the opposite. Where it's like he's got so many people. None of them really matter. We'll right because you see in through that party later, which is another senior living, but but you've right where you sort of a drip. He can't really to these women dating and in his work. You can't imagine he can relate. Eight to the rappers heave presents the idea, though, is that like they're both masters of their domain. So putting them together. Right. They're both more because they're like, I'm usually the boss of everything. Like who? Are you me? And that's but that's also another. He's out. Taking a hammer to the studio. Another thing. That's great about this is that it's like the full. It's the full story of a romance in a way never really get. So like an imprint trap. You have a romance that already exist. You have all these rumors that are pre existing romances, and like it's complicated in this and the holiday like doesn't really with them kinda getting together. But it's like this is this is a romance from start to finish in a way that she'd never really done before. And the fact that the second hour of the movie is them processing the one week. Yeah. That it really is. Just right ever has that jabs true. It's because they have one in superintendents week, right? They have like the best sex of their lives. Right. I guess I do. The scene is also so fucking hot. It's like hot just into him cutting off the turtlenecks. Watching it. I was like this is a lot. We're forgetting the nudity. We're forgetting the new Marshall. Socialize. That's when they start bonding is them trying to make jokes about right? I always found a kind of -fensive that this when we got a PG thirteen because the implication always seemed to be like, well, no one would find that shadow. It's very brief. That's why there's an Elliott non sexual nudity. But don't you think there's the elementary likes and to fem saying she's dancing around that Arlov sexual? Yes Danson, but she's also Nansen g she's Manson. I just like I forgot of course. I remembered the. Oh, like the covering their crystal at the right, right right, showing us more than we ever want to say, very true. But that is I forgot that the then he's like I didn't see anything just your tits, which I think is a really funny line. It's Macy's a little dirtier than you. Remember anytime, you watch these movies like, and it's it's one of her best qualities like she's actually have sex the way, the people talk about sex is really honest. Yeah. And the way that's surprising for these types of films. And right. So then they have the icebreaker joke around the nudity. They go shopping. They start finding more and more their connections. And then she kisses him, and they have this amazing sex which Kano told him he could only have sex after he is able to pressure right shot of via the blood pressure monitor other movie that would have been you know, eighty minutes in can climb the stairs with forty minutes. Ainu months comedy of manners that ends with them getting together there and happy ending. But I think a thing she's really fucking good at is getting what like actual exciting. Intimacy of these situations is feeling comfortable enough to do things you haven't felt comfortable enough to do around other people more than the sex itself things like the loss of the turtleneck, which is very very like underlying highlighted in bold with the scissors and everything, but the blood pressure and all that they're both like owning who they are. Yeah. And I like, you know, nor nor Ephron wrote the famous like, I I hate my neck thing. And I think that became this reconquered women of a certain age that becomes a big point of insecurity for them. Like, they feel like they see Asian on their neck in their hands on those are two things. They try to hide and Nancy always wears fucking turtlenecks. And it just feels like a very honest thing to be like, this is the thing she never would feel comfortable showing even to her sister and her daughter and the rest of the movie she's wearing Vina v neck is always on display transformation. And it's one of those subtle storytelling things where every scene when you establish our new outfit. It hasn't emotional pain. Into it. Because you're like she's so showing her not. And I think that's one of the reasons that this movie is was a slow burn for me. Not only because I saw it when I was a teenager, and I didn't really care about appreciate that was my original. I watched again as an adult, and I was like why did I not give this time of day? 'cause I always wrote it off. Yeah. And it, and I it has aged so much better than it's complicated. And I don't wanna keep harping on its. But specifically because I recently watched both of them. It's just like this movie. This is everything. And and when people not to offend anyone of the, but it's like when people place, it's complicated over something's gotta give. I just want to scream at them like watch it again. Like, you're you're not really paying attention to something's gotta give your misremembered Alec Baldwin is like one tenth. I mean, it's complicated. Feels like the sketch comedy version of this and has the moment to pay those. But the thing that surprising is just how fucking deep dying keep goes into this thing. Right. You know, and with Keaton with Nicholson, it there's more to lose him examining his own persona in this way because Baldwin at that point doing it's complicated. Had just become oh he used to be hot. And now he's fat. And he does comedies. It's not sort of cutting in the same sort of way and her crying after they have sex and all that kind of stuff is just like fuck like this feels extreme watching this in a movie feels like watching a brutal fight scene or something. Like, you don't see things that feel this kind of visceral and messy so after they vote. Yes, they take a one way on. They part ways, basically, right? He gets better than leave. Right because he can walk up the stairs. Well, they're gonna sleep in the same bed together. And she starts asking about the trip to Paris. And immediately the monogamous thing comes in and some out and can't do this. She's like, right. You I send the girls home, and I'm home. What do you do? And then he comes back in and realize he's going to give it a shot and for the first time ever hours asleep. Beta it's nice. 'cause then they both only sleep for our when they mentioned when they mentioned Paris. It's done still sort of platonic. It's like elevator for her favorite restaurant, best roast, chicken chicken. Okay. The fridge. And it's like, well, we have leftover Cocco van we can make pancakes. His choices pancakes. And then so he goes off and Amanda Pete has gotten meltdown because her dad is marrying someone that's her age. Yeah. Just mom. Can you please drive three hours into the city right in the middle of traffic? I think the Pete character is fine in the first part of his movie, she she's a little tougher to take in this chunk. You know, because it just she seems like she should be a little work like should be a little girl for the high schooler. Sure. But she's very kuechley supportive of the relationship. Like, she doesn't. She doesn't right? Yeah. Had had she acted as a like, it would have been more frustrating, if she'd gone, full, it's complicated. I think it would have been it would have been tough to like her, right? I mean, guests there's more Grayson this to her versus the lake bell. Character has to do with the fact that she's also a daughter in addition to being the romantic rival to some extent. But earlier you forget that he calls says she's met another guy comes up tries to break up with Nicholson and realize that he dumped her first. Oh, yeah. I love that. And they start. That's when she says a Keaton lake what about the two of you cinch makes it clearly we never had sex, right, right? Yeah. That's in the is that in the grocery store. Yes. Okay. And Kiana who's been hovering. All this time. They have their when he meets Erica. He's like I'm such a fan. I've read all your plate. I think I've seen them. All do you kind of wonder suspect about the universe? Do you think that? That Erica would have agreed to start dating this younger. Doctor had she not met Jack Nicholson. No, right. Isn't that sort of the implication? Here turtleneck would have still been opened up her life in in more ways than one Runco. Yes. And he's making such pervasive argument for like, why not have fun, right? That I think she because she's so resistant to Keno, even when this guy's got everything going for him and his fan of her work and all of that because it's just like, I don't wanna be the fucking person dates younger people, and she's it's just ridiculous. She just thinks it's ridiculous. Like, it just be ridiculous for her to do that. And also there's the thing right at the start which he's working at my new play. What's it about? And she's like, oh, this completely uptight annoying, divorced woman. But she's fun at. Everyone's like, oh is she she's like, well, I'm trying to figure that out. Right. Mickelson helps her figure that out. Yeah. I also love I've always wanted to write a play that ends in Paris, which is more. Like, do you see what I'm doing is? She like a terrible, I think so when you see her play reminds me a lot of Emma stone's one woman. Show in LA La Land. She's like a beer that. She's like multiple symbols dancing. Jack Nicholson's that's one of my one of my questions of my notes question is her play good. Because they talk about her. She such the greatest female playwrights since. Can I forget what may drive train even think who she is present. Neil Simon because the way that like John talks when you're like, oh, she like, Wendy Wasserstein. And then you see your play. This looks really bore broad like she she writes place for people to go like. Like that ju- comedies. Yeah. Complete is like a female Neil, Simon comedy misinformation. And but the play thing is another way that I think you get a hate to be going back to this. But like another window into Nancy that you don't get in in her other movies where she's specifically talking about herself this person. Yeah. And she says, it's when they talk about Paris, and how unbelievable it is. And she says something like if if I don't give it to the audience if I don't give them this fantasy than who will. And it's like, that's really how Nancy sees mission. So it sort of it gives credence that I mean, I don't know the gives a new level to her or gives context to her perfectionism in that she's not doing it for her. She's doing it because she feels like she has to like she's doing this thing that the public deserves because they're not getting it anywhere. It's the same thing that like grand Budapest hotel does like it has like the refines character explained to the. Audience. Why was Anderson is so fussy about these things because he's trying to like recreate a world that he misses and she wants to create a fancy that people can escape to impart. That's the apartment, porn and the outfits and the gauzy nece. I mean, the thing I was going to say the connection to the national treasure thing is watching one of these video interviews the G Q been doing the things where they have the actor go over all their roles, which those videos have really fucking cunningness essentially studio where they do all the stuff because also the reaching into the box Vanity Fair has where you look Google terms. But this one is just specifically breaks down there. Most iconic and the nNcholas cage. One is incredible. Like me, he's really sort of. So Burton wise about the history of his work and saying what he likes what he was trying to do in all of this. But he talks about the national treasure movies. And he says none of that was going to be a hit in looked really embarrassing. The thing that the moment I thought might work was Jon Voight catch me onset, and he says this turtle tub. Is good. And he was like, you know, and he Jon Voight said to him. No the thing. You don't understand is he's making a souffle. It seems really light and airy, but if he gets one element wrong, the whole thing's going to flake and movies like that. The people are like, yeah. It's dumb fun. It's really hard to be dumb fun verses this movie sucks, boring, and I don't wanna watch it or the logic. Make so little sense that I check out, and I feel like Nancy is like a souffle filmmaker where there's a lot of care and artistry into trying to make this thing that's like feather light where it's like rich people like having blown up drama around Heine problems in life that feel perfect feel enjoyable without becoming like urinating or meandering, you know, especially because we're films do have these seventeen structures that is sort of like the artistry of what she does. And it makes sense that she's that obsessed about like we found it in. It's complicated said that she made like Steve Martin de like ten makeup tests. But it's like that's what they do with like. Killer croc and suicide swat, and she was like, no the foundation, isn't right. And it's like it's Steve Moore. And he looks the same in every movie, but she has this notion of the world she wants to create and the weird thing with this movie is it's like Diane Keaton is trying to make an ANSI Myers movie out of her life. But she's trying to make the Nancy Meyers troll Shire movie. Yeah. And what she's living is a lot Messier, it's complicated. And this is Nancy like separating herself from the Shire filmography and being like, I'm gonna go deeper like it's still going to have this veneer and the sheen and this intoxicating world in the movie stars and all of that. But I'm going to do the scenes that ever cuts out. I'm going to have it take place at different points. And I'm gonna show an hour of them thinking about that week. I love that movie is our Louis pretty much. That's the thing that really sells me on this movie makes it special. Yeah. She she goes to New York to see could he Strickland, right? Whatever that's relevant. It's religious device for her to see Nicholson on a day. Because at this point Nicholson went back and go on with my life. And we knew there was no hope between her voice and in the in the ex husband, right? Never seem like an open door. But because she's in this restaurant meeting, husbands new, the she sees Nicholson with a short haired woman, guess Marley Shelton type. And she lives mortified, I think she doesn't realize how emotionally tapped she was until she sees him in the situation. Right. And so she sort of drags him out of there and yells at him on the street for ten minutes like a minute, right, right? Like, fourteen different lines in that in that scene. Jets like Nancy's. Hey makers. Lot. Okay. Get the bell. Get the door. Got his hands in his pockets house. He bringing the door. No. I know who this is. He's he's back. You know, do you owe Jackie himself? Never rob another millions rhubarb. Boy, what are you doing here? We're just talking about you, Jack. I'm out of my Brian name a rectal dysfunction pills. Oh, well in the film.

So yeah, they he leaves her outside the restaurant or she leaves him restaurant gets into cab, and it's been parked. That's the whole time. She just gets in classic movie. And then he thinks he's having another heart attack. This is one Rachel Tacoma and comes Dr original Taku, just just takes the movie just suplexes. It just incredible. Yes. She gets just runs with this movie. The her scene is really good. Yeah. When she says, I well while I found your diagnosis. Interesting. Write she essentially is like you booking com down like you're so Streit's the hip and the hop. Why are you going on dates you had a heart attack you maniac? Also this where she says like it was a week ago. When you realize it was a we. Right. And he's already dressed up like he like, some mobster. You know, getting his pasta Primavera. She's like, why aren't you in a like a sofa watching movie he looks like a dick, Tracy? Go turn on TC 'em. Weirdo. Meanwhile, Diane Keaton's like I took off my turtlenecks for this. And then now she can't stop writing. And then we have to crying montage montage is so funny and it so good. It should shouldn't work it shouldn't work Szilard and the end. That's the reason it weren't right? It's just so long the peeing gagging. Awesome powers funny. And she really does like she does. So many different types of cries. It really is like it's a real showcase. It's you have the reading this movie that this is all been Nicholson's head after he has a heart attack. And like, it seems like he's spiritually healed. But then he'd like goes off. And then it hasn't worked. Then the angel is so upset that there's this like cosmic crack, right like she goes back to her weird little like waystation, but she could do is cry right? Like Clara Belle can't get its wings. And yes, she writes, a play about what did your kids and killing. It's the best thing she's written because because he wants to with doorman sees him picking out Napa at the old fruit stands and brings him over gives it a second Shah forgot about that brings the flowers. This is so fucking charming when he says, he's which to me when I forgive you. And I'm like just fuck me. Fuck me enter coming to my mom, take me. Anyway, rages you own my body. You only worried about like, you seem like you might be a spy or something. You're too perfect like vice sleep with you. Do you like somehow like is this compromise? Is this character from the water is this some sort of like bayton, switch boy. But so charming now he's reading the play. He's loving it. They're kinda hitting it off look butts seen with butts. No, I'm I'm I'm processing something I'm trying to think of some. But no, no keep going away. Something's bubbling. We don't even talk about the last seen before the six months later is their big fight in the on the on the stage with the butts with the right where she is like I'm trying to decide whether or not to kill your care. Yes. He's like well Fuk you he doesn't. And does he literally he literally just like walks past the theatre and sees the posters and everything. Right. Because then he just no he does that later later actually watch this with Joe SIMS of pacifists grin and he works in. And I was like you can't just like do that. Right. You could just like walk up to a show after an hour and just open the door. He was like, no that's how everyone hammers stuff. Just just wait five minutes. Don't buy a ticket. And in the back, literally the major conflict of Spiderman too, right? You can't enter a Broadway show after it started into your after so too, correct? That's true. That's true. And you maybe you can walk into a play musical, snow Ramey. Like walked into like Alvin Sargent's office was like we gotta throat everything we have so far. I've just got out of something's gotta give and we need to offer a corrective. Oh boy. Right. He owes her six months later the first time he just goes to see her. I don't know. What is what what what does? What does remember her asking Kiani out on a date that she then stands up on when you cut to county? They make plans that's ever established. I think it's just. He's sitting alone you ever see the date get scheduled, then he orders a MARTINI. And then she gets a MARTINI and she's that line at the dinner. She goes you forget how quickly these just slip down, which is a weird thing to say. So now he sees the play. It's about me. No, it someone like you. And it's like literally everything's being recreated restaged around him. And no one knows that it's him. Because when he goes and visits, Amanda, Pete. And the new boyfriend that six months late sick, six six months later cut. It's snowing. Yeah. Jack Nicholson has a beard. He has one of his show that. Ever seen? Also, literally looks like a stage beard, say bad glue. I think it's one of the best fake beards. I've ever seen you like I'll tell you why. Because fake beards are so bad that they always look bad, and this one at least has a little bit of character to feared sucks fake beards. Are so bad. They never look good on anyone. They never pass. But what about the good beards that? We don't know about like the we just assume real like our today exists. I challenge you to find. I don't know. He's got a ridiculous beard. Yes, Pete has you know has been in the loving relationship for years somehow. This is the clearest argument for my fear because he seems to have lived a life that she's the doctor because she in the six months between has met a man married him and his now three months, I think the only reason for this is because it Nancy had a final line in mind and she needed to work away. But that final line which four and a half or whatever it is like she wanted in with the baby. And the only way she could him with the baby is to have Amanda Peet. Suddenly meet a guy and explain it away by saying like, I I live in Manhattan a million people today she called up pass. And she was like I got a three point joke from court. If you green it I'll figure out the rest of the movie, it's Nicholson Keaton, Pete a baby and a man and they go four and a half. And she's like, yeah. Done hundred million dollars from back when you got a script ridiculous. She wrote in the weekend. She wrote. The whole time. Right. Looking out at the sound at one hand was typing. The other hand was cutting turtlenecks with gold scissors. Yes. So he first surprises. I guess he sees the play from Bax sneaks in kind of like, smiles smiles. Sure, fucked her embarrassing. He's embarrassed. But he, but he gets. Yeah. Then he goes to see Pete in Pete's like, oh me. Who me? Here's my husband. Like, here's my bump. And then he's the most domestic man in the history. Just I just literally pulled at the wallpaper in this guy came out of it. Yeah. And then my name is Mr. stable good person. But which is Nancy saying Halley, this is the sort of man, I want you to losing with Nicholson. You got. Right. And then and he makes very sound decision to fly to Paris and go to this restaurant that she said she liked one time was that Sean Paris. Do we think no no Sean steps out towers behind him as one of the ones that looks like ratatouille? Music. Also sounds good as Radha tutti onsumer again Nancy's. Yeah. Liable sweeping. Yeah. And this is the movie speaking of the score, this is where her like, you know, her delicate lake Spanish Qatar comes. Like, this is this is where it begins everything about all of those specific aesthetics begins the the music in the waiting room of your massage Paulo. It's like, that's that's the score for films. She hands those CDs. She goes to the receptionist goes, can you give me the name of the track sends it to Huns Emmer and says replicate this for ninety minutes. I also I'm sorry to go back on this. But I'm I'm thinking about what you said again, the the perfectionist stuff. And there was an interview I read with her it was the one that was a New York magazine and someone asked her about was for the, you know, the intern the the the famed intern promo cycle and someone Asir about, you know, the her aesthetic and hers and our houses and the house doesn't houses, and she is a little noy by the question. This happened a few times during that promo cycle. And she was like, I don't know why people are asking me the suddenly she's like I like interior design like houses, I keep a Pinterest board. And she's just like that's not it just seems so obvious to her. It's like why wouldn't I have a beautiful house like my wooden? I make the most of this and make everything look good. The other thing. I remember her saying in that press. Tort the just came back a little absurd of her due to that a little bit Hoji about a kitchen. She gets she gets over it by the end of that like by the end of that cycle. She's used to it. Yes. But I think again, it was suddenly people cared about her and people were asking her worried about about right? They were putting all the films together as a body the other thing, I remember in that press cycle was. Someone once again said like, why are you so meticulous? But all these details, and she said, I think a which sweater character wears can say as much if you choose a correctly as any other element of film and people think I get caught up in these superficial details, but they do inform character. And it's like, that's those are the colors on her pallet. That's how she knows how to characterize, you know, and like director, right? Yeah. And I'll say like Romley, you know, doing his kitchen corners like for someone like my sister who understands kitchen layout and the actual like. Applying appliances in there like they all check out in terms of that is the exact question. Oh, this kitchen makes no sense. In terms of where everything is this is totally. All right. It's just like you do get a sense of a world entering her movies. That is fully realized. They really early. Yes. So he's impairs and he shows up at the restaurant. She's just so like loose and happy. Now, you know what? I mean, she's so chill. She so. And I do that she so chill even though Kiana secretly like in another room like in the right? Emerson polishing his engagement. Kiana is playing a very strange person in this movie because when he comes back. Yeah, he's like Ravin be like anyway. Nice to see you. He stays with them in Ben takes out the engagement ring. I know he doesn't open it. But he takes out the box. So if your read is that Nicholson is dead and eaten is an angel. My read is that Kiana isn't alien this film will write good. He's like a star, man. Having chicks with you Nicholson has like Brooke Kiana was also angel obviously right Nicholson is broken something. And now the angels are getting together rather than just helping the dead like through their maybe Kiana never has never left. The Hamptons went to like Hampton's medical school Hamptons. Everything it really does feel that way. Born in sag harbor, right? Yeah. Maybe he took a few trips into the city to see one of her place has set his favorite NBA team is the Hampton seashells. That's my joke for the episode. Thank you, very much a strange guy. But I, but you I you you look pass it because it's like, I know I see what you're doing here. Nancy, look, I see you're doing what the younger guy. So I I'm just going to choose to ignore everything that is like completely bizarre. Unbelievable about this person. Yes. Yes. I agree with that. He starts the big monologue on making a man's with all the women is life after Cana comes back to the table, right? Which we cut back calls. Right. So what are you doing for the last six months, he sold everything? He gave it all he ditch Fabio and his his townhouse RAB parties for. Aruba? Where's he going somewhere Bahamas? Yeah. I don't remember one of those. And he said he was there for five minutes and realized it was wrong, which I love I love that cut to him. Where do they feel that? I see the thing that looks like it was filmed, it was certainly on a beach. But I love you cut him where he's not gonna do this roses like, you know, goes away. Opens the drawer finds all his little black books and starts going back to like every woman he ever this is the this feels like he's come out of heaven. Yeah, he's back. He's got a second chance in real life. Because that's the other reasons that this is real Diane Keaton, I guess, I don't fucking know it doesn't matter. Okay. Anyway. Right. Because he does have this weird AA kind of like he's got a matron policies being such a creep. Yes. And there's that you don't see anyone tell him that. He's a creepy. Just see a montage of someone silently telling him what a jerk. He is while he like, nah. And that's the thing. It's not even that he goes to apologize for being a creep. He goes to find out how they think of him. And then realizes how destructive he's been all these people. It's like bigger fantasy the self awareness yet. He just knows he needs to do it to get, you know, clear the decks in his mind, and then start taking account of how much damage he's caused generations of women who then like in a very Nancy Meyers touch. It's like I actually somehow was able to give them closure like inundate this productive. It wasn't just a self servicing thing for me to do to make myself feel better. I helped them come to terms with these relationships. Right. I do like that you see like twenty two year old women, and you see women who are like fifty they pointedly put in a couple of women with hairs head awhile. Right. And it was like, okay. So that was like an early one where they were maybe only five years apart in age, you know. And now he realizes the he. Yeah, he lows Erica. And then what three months three months go by? Well, I, you know, she she's got a letdown countdown easy, which again Nancy doesn't show. Knicks doesn't show the tough. He gives that whole speech before Kiana comes back because then kind of says, I love you on who shows up, and he's like what the FOX going on just get where we're we sort of are supposed to write. He sees what's going on. And he gets his first he takes the take out the bucks. But then he's looking at them staunch, right? Yeah. Right. And then Nicholson leaves and Diane comes after him on the right on the fake bridge. Yeah. Then we cut to write four and a half months later. I don't fucking know or and a half months later, the funniest of all time. You think it's the funniest joke of all time. What about would've done in July? It's number two O J D's envelope bids over one then four and a half months later, then I would have done in July. Yeah. D-? Do we need that scene? Happy with dinner scene. Yeah. I'm happy with them in Paris kissing. The I don't think we need it. I think Nancy needs. It name Nancy has she got into a big family. You have to end up on like a family that has accepted this person. And there is something almost jarring about seeing Nicholson in that seem very weird. Really? Oh, I guess he just raise just hangs out completely different style of suit. He's like right brand new if feels like Roger rabbit, it's like people in cartoons. Interacting him holding a baby being paternal towards it feels very odd within his star persona. But I think Nancy Meyers like Nancy Meyers. You need the family approval for something. Like had the family not approved of head. Amanda, Pete's character not approved of this relationship and never would have happened morning as she could have been for Jack Nicholson like never would have been happy end. And so I think that's just like a Nancy requirement. Yeah. Agree. This had a very weird bucks performance. Because this was a crazy multiplier. It was a Christmas movie. So that's that's part of the reason I think, but it did open to sixteen million and finish at one twenty four which is very good. Obviously, a very very good player December twelve two thousand and three something had to give it opened number one sixteen sixteen low one. This was I love him the weekend right before Christmas. Isn't that big? Because they're holding all the huge releases for the twenty fifth Lord of the rings return to the king comes up next week. Yeah. Okay. Right. But got it gives makes eleven that. We, you know, nearly just kept. Okay. So number one's gotta get to. A period epic. That I think was trying to be an Oscar player. It wasn't really got some nominations. But it's a big period. Action epic with a huge star. Troy, not Troy great guests in summer. Yeah. Isn't that kind of that old like Meh far back? Sure. Not too many movies are set in was it the picture cold mountain. No. That did come out the next weekend becomes out like Christmas day. Right. Right. Right. Right. Right. But is that closer is sure. I it's a period action epic with a big star. I saw it in theaters. It's bad interesting. I love the actor. But it's bad. It's not one of his better performances. Probably one of his worst performances really housing three. Does he have to do an accent? No, no. He's out of place. He's a fish out of water within the premise of the film. I wanna say kingdom of heaven. But that's not right. When did oh, I know what movie is young crews in the last last. Yeah. Tom Cruise ED's wick Ken Watanabe a movie that had all these Spall underperformed opening weekend play pretty well. Yeah. Made one eleven it was not a huge hit it costs more than it made in domestically. But it did really well overseas like it was. Launches once three what's number three number three. What's three number three? What's three? Big broad comedy high-concept too. Big star high pretty high now, that's my life. No. There's like one concept. There's one concept the concept is like what if two people were this. And then like, that's the movies just sorta like, that's what we had for you. That was all right. People were all I know what it is. It is stuck on you stuck on. What if they were others stock? It's a Damon and Greg near and Meryl Streep and share. Yup. And like isn't the purpose. Just like what if people were like conjoined twin? Yes. Yeah. And you fall in love running into like what if they had some of the romance. Like what happens if they fall in love with the same person? Maybe my feeling all those early brothers though, which just walking in. They be like get this fairly brothers masters of the gross. Oh comedy join twins. It's called stuck on. You know, what their premise was? They announced this like right after something about Mary. And it was only what taboo on house in between those two they want to make this first. They couldn't make it forever. And their premise was get to radically different actors and stuff. Come together. And so their pitch was it's Woody Allen Leonardo Di Caprio and their conjoined twins this terrible. And then it kept on being like, oh, maybe it's going to be Steve Martin and James Vander, whatever it was. And then ended up being Canir Damon who are kind of spanner be. Yeah. It's it's weird because they're almost they're close enough in age where you're like, I guess I could see it and they're not drastic enough kind. Like, dad handsome. Yeah. Floppy haircut. Do you know who loves them movie Academy Award nominee, Jesse Eisenberg great? It's like always vouching for stuck on you. Anyway, number four is another new entry this week. So they open three comedies in the same week. Really dumb. This is like a teen comedy starring to musicians or. Exactly Candida musician. I he did he was rapper a little bit of everything Christina million. Yeah. Keenan's return to the big screen, and it was right? When he got back on. Sort of disappeared. How? Well, Harvey Steve heart. I know nothing has seen where he tells Nick cannon how to fuck on water. And there's a nemo's joke and their number five is also flopping around on the land like nemo, actually almost every movie in this top ten is a comedy number. Yeah. Not less. Okay. Also, Disney like big budget comedy with a big star. That sucks. It's at three Disney. But do I like it? Maybe probably I probably do is it like is it like an effect driven. It's based on a ride. Oh, no. Yeah. Correct. And Santa haunted mansion. I mean, you don't like that. But you know, I I've never seen it. There's a there's a version of me that's pretty close to this version dome argument for why it's actually secretly subversive. Can I tell the of really embarrassing thing about haunted mansion better be quick? But is I went to see that movie opening day with my friend out of school and stead of something's gotta give. It wasn't outrageous, right? Yeah. We need is three weeks. And I got a phone call. And it was my parents calling because it was my dad's birthday, and I had forgotten to show up to dinner. So I only ever saw half of that movie before I had to run out when I have to remember my dad's birthday, I look up what they wanted mansion came out. I know like when it vaguely is what's the exact twenty? You're never gonna learn it because your brain knows that you'll always just look up. I know it's twenty five twenty six or twenty seven. What was the day that haunted mansion came out? That's my father because some other movies in the top ten or L bed Santa and the cat in the house. There's also a movie that I think Bobby, and I both have a little bit of affection for which is about a woman who teaches hip hop down at the center master. Then you have affection for I told you trek through a snowstorm to go see that movie night. You sound like some dead from like the third we used to have to walk thirty to see Honey, I love Honey, don't fucking come out here. Just tweeted each other like Tonio. I I'm not a big Honey person. Why did I remember I said like not a big Honey person? And then you responded with I think a quote from Honey win over my head. Because again, I'm not one Honey Purfleet. What does she do?

"You're listening to inside of you with Michael Rosenbaum smallville week continues, folks. It's his final week. We did two weeks last week. If you haven't listened to, please listen to Kristen crew Lana Lang, she doesn't do very many interviews. So go back in the one that's really good. And now the creators of smallville they've ever done any of us who maybe they have. But, but this week, the guy who played my father for seven years, I think six before I killed them and threw out a window, what a glorious man such great stories you can have to listen. I don't want to give it away. But anyway, John Glover is on the show. We talked about how I was so nervous because I thought he didn't like me in the pile up but he was just he was nervous. And that's why he was like, what are you talking about? I was nervous and the I don't hear very many interviews from him either. So let's get inside the one and only I'm very excited about this. Let's get inside a John Glover. It's my. You're listening to inside of you with Michael Rose. Inside of you with Michael Rosenbaum was not recorded in front of a live studio audience. How can you hear can you hear him nice and clear? What so that's good right there. What you haven't missed a beat John Glover and the beat goes on. And the beat goes on all on. You have always been God, man. It's just this energy onset. Like people always, I haven't energy on set. Yeah, when I come, I think it's insecurity. I think I come on because I have to be on about people like me, you're just innately just ready to go. You're on. No. But I like people to like me too, on sets and things rehearsals is the place where I'm the happiest is that true. Your most happy. Onset working. Yeah. 'cause I can be somebody else. That's true. And do you do you remember how we met was on the pilot? I believe. Yes. And I was really nervous because I sincerely, I told you this. I sincerely thought you didn't like me. I thought the guy. Playing my father and granite. You're a method actor. You're not supposed to really like me, so to speak. But that's part of your, your makeup, sort of, you sort of startled people in my main, I remember on the set when we were shooting, scenes, and things that you sort of misbehave I wha what would I do what you just shake it up. But you're looking for, for. You know, so it's fresh and everything. So because a lot of actors plot things out. I'm on my teacher used to say accidents or, or kind of the best thing that can happen to accidents how like making your pants accidents or what kind of accent's you don't crapping in your pan wrapping up. No, no, no. Like that. It just stuff if stuff goes different forces you to think to be, you know, present. Yeah. Yeah. And that's what you I figured out that what you were doing was was great for me, because it just it would sort of making a little tense really well, but that's what our relationship was like, in the in the play enjoyed working with me in those first few days of the pilot. What? Well, I didn't know if you particularly liked me because I knew you look, all I had heard is sorry if I sound like a little bit on nor co because I had neck surgery. So I am a little bit out of it. If I scream if you took a pain pill or. Yeah. Because I had to a little, that's what they all say, I had I had to I, I was in Russia, by almost cancelled and then Byron your buddy. You're my buddy said, hey, John's not going to be available till March. Let's on the show today. So you in an essence, you blaming me for taking the nor code today because you had to be able to think, well, I was gonna take the Noriko anyway, I needed to feel good today, you know, 'cause I don't like to play the blame. You don't do drugs do you? Oh, no. Do you drink Ono is this ally? Yes. You're lying to me, right? I drink red wine and there's something about Mary Jane's, just thrills, the crap out of me. Thrills the crap out marijuana does something to you. Yes. Now, does it does it free of inhibitions, does it awaken? You the spirit of John Glover do for all God. Yes. But, but when it started when I, I smoked one till I was out of college is it different time back, then, you know, the weed was real. I guess. Now at first I was very paranoid. When I get stoned, do you get paranoid, every time he gets down on or not anymore. No matter how bad that we'd is strong. We'd is you don't get paranoid. You know, I don't wanna boasts something like that, and ten providence. Is it about weed for you? Do you feel sexually adequate more adequate? When you're having when you're stoned. I think so. Do you feel what do you feel what? Well the all the touch is different. You know it just has to do with your attitude. I guess which everything in life is dependent on, you know, or determined by your attitude, and how you deal with it. You, you taught me how to what a lot of things, but I always give you credit for the man, the actress taught me how to touch people onset now with this was was, I was twenty six coming in smallville, and I had done plays and things like that. But I've never experienced another actor when it wasn't written when it wasn't subtext was when it wasn't directed at the actor, I wasn't used to someone touching me. Now, this was a very unique thing you would do. There'd be a moment where you look at me, and then you grab my cheek and you'd say son or you'd rubbed my shoulder, you know, the man, I hated that they cut was that time when I when I took your. Your face in my hands and just stuck my tongue down your throat. Oh, they cut that out, well just thought they doing. Just I remember that maybe I was stone or so stone that day. Now, do you, did you. Did you learn that from someone else because what does is it throws the actor off in a good way? Let me. And that's what I'm saying that you did for me. So you're, you're saying you'd like to be on the edge like to be on your you just like a little bit loose a little bit like unpredictable. Yeah. And that worked well for us 'cause I know when we're in the middle of it, it's just like what the fuck is he doing? Yeah. He's changing things up. That's not what is. But then I just use the. Fire relationship. It was I tried it. Once the guests darn it didn't work out. Too is guest. I don't remember. I think it was Sean Connery, son. But I remember, you know, I touched him, I grabbed his face, and the doctor said, hey, Michael on this take don't touch him. Amac wise, like you don't know him. He's guessed starts doesn't make any sense. I have a friend who was on who's that, girl that was on Amy Adams. No, no, no, no. She was on that thing with that show when we were doing smallville with although the four kids, and I don't know. But I- charmed was it a charm show? It was it was. Why is it so hard for you? Remember that your person because I'm old you're not held or your seventy four that's not old. In today's market. I said market today's market, John, seventy four is not old. You have sixteen years left before someone's gonna go. Hey, that old anyway, this girl who was my friend was on the show. She was playing her mother gray. So at one point, she took the took the hair breast behind your ears everything they finished the take and the young actress who was the star from broke Brokeback mountain hunch. Michelle wasn't Michelle, there was a blonde girl, Michelle Williams, this sale Williams, and the other person's cryonics creek and the other girl who was who was the was who wasn't Anne Hathaway was, Katie Holmes yet. No. But anyway, she was the one that said, don't touch me. And this was a woman, a mother, she didn't like it. So have you ever had an actress, don't touch? Me. I don't want to be touched on a site like not that I can remember but that doesn't mean a thing. Well, I remember you were in a movie called some of you might know Annie hall. Oh, yeah. You had a nice moment, and you guys were touching and making out against a wall. If I recall have a sort of rubbing up my finger up and down her her bare arm, and who is at actress Diane Keaton. Diane Keaton touch my heart with your foot. Did you just make that up? No, it was in the script. And Woody Allen was going to cut that line because he had his own a beanbag and stuff like that. So he said, well, you're standing up. So I got to cut that line. And I knew that was the money line. So I sort of said, oh, look at that. So I started sliding down the wall as I said, how was it working with Woody, Allen? Were you nervous working with Woody? Allen is just strange. Why is it strange because he's they say are they what the word they use his shy? See I, I was I was working on a play up in Harvard. The devil's disciple and I had met him once. So they just called me and said, you've got this job. So I had to come in from Boston to do this one scene. And when I got home, they had put the my sides in the mail, slot in this loft where I lived, so I got home. I learned the scene when were you shooting the next day, the next day? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So were you. So I had no idea what it was about or anything. So I went in sort of like a freak or trying to because bananas was, I think right before that, right? Which the Annie hall was the first in that new kind of style was what he's sort of kind of knew wasn't Hugh tremendously famous yet or at this time he was. I think he was because he's already famous. Yeah. Yeah. So that was there. But the fact that I had no idea except for these strange lines. You know, like you know how I wanna be as an actor torn apart by wild animals and stuff like that. So I was trying to make it bizarre. So he just came up and. And sort of showed me. But, but what happened was because it was the the split screen, I did mine. I and then they worked for a long time on the scene of them watching us. So I thought I was done. I was just waiting around, and then they said, okay, John, you're back on. And I thought we did it already. They said, no, no, no, no. We've done the first time. But now we're going back to do yours again and each take that we did because I wasn't ready and I just learned him the night before I went up on. I seem that's the line. I ruined the tape because it was a very specific thing. You get in your head when you mess up line. Do you remember when I got in my head, what I should have said, was after the first one that I messed up on I should give me a minute now because I didn't know I was, but I wasn't confident enough. I mean it was like the first Dounia twenties. Yeah. And it was the second movie I'd ever made the I was shameless Jefferson with Burt Reynolds and Diana Cano. I was a junkie. So, you know, there I was on a Woody Allen said and I, I just tried to do it again. And again, and I could see the script supervisor who was sitting next to what he Allen to starting to flinch and getting upset a little bit, like, well, yeah, I get his fucking on. Well, were they only had four takes for me to do it? See because then they had to wait for dailies. And, and so I had to come in to the set where we were I remember when he drove up and gave gave him the okay to let me go. The, the first four I did were were good enough. So until the movie came out, I had no idea if I was still going to be in it. So now when you, you get these sides that have slipped through your door the night before you're in New York, you're probably not making a lot of money as an act with point exactly who broke. And they say you're going to do with Michael Keaton with Diane Keaton. Diane keaton. I keep wanting to call her Michael though. When I see her history worse, and, and Michael when I see. Our you, but don't you? How do you can show your nerves? Are you are you a guy that still to this day? It's nervous. Yes. D. D- nothing's changed. No. It's changed. It's like ah channeling your iphone or something. So I've gotta learn to myself to say, okay. You're getting nervous or your flinching because of data that, that just happens. Okay. This is all in your attitude, John. You can take care of this yourself. You just need to change your attitude and, and relax a little. You talk to yourself. You look in the mirror and say you're good enough. You're smart enough, and doggone it, people like me, do is their sense of that. Do you think that you kind of talk yourself into things like I'm here for a reason? I'm fucking good. But I can't look in the mirror when I'm doing it now. It's only in your head. I'm so vain. I bet you think this is about you don't you don't did did what do you ever say? Great job great. It was great. I liked the great or did you never hear that? You never heard that when he released me. I figure. That could be I don't know. Do you need that as an actor? I'd like it. I, I remember I recall season one and I hadn't done a ton of work, but done plays and things at this time, and there's a scene in the Luther mansion, and I'm supposed to knock all this shit off the wall and these books and there's a tornado going on outside. It was like the wizard of Oz. Yes, in a bloody and you and I have this huge scene together, and I can't get it. I just can't get the scene. I can't get the lines out. I'm fucking them up. It's not or Ganic for black of a better word, I just feel like I suck as an actor and I can't get this. I don't know what to do. Well, how'd you solve? Well, I solved it because you solve them how nice of you talk me a sides. Michael can I talk to you for just a second? And you were very soft spoken like you always are, and you just said, just listen to what I'm saying as your father, just listen to what I'm saying. Forget about all the action and all the things you just listen to what I'm telling you and respond, and you're in you're very, very sorry, if I'm stepping on any boundaries, or whatever, and I go put John, that's it. I knew what I had forgotten was the thing that every actor forgets listening. And I swear the next take golden I didn't care about anything other than listening to what you said the simplest thing listening. Do you still forget to listen, sometimes when I'm nervous, you know, when you're nervous, when I was a kid, my twenties, and thirties, I don't remember having to really learn lines. And now the it's what do you mean? You just you learn them. So easily the only remember learning them. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I felt like that, too. I care about it. I was going to replace this was in the sixties. I think it must have been the sixties Andy Robinson you. He was in a showdown, public, right? Sub. Fits which was based on the, the idiot by Dostoyevsky. Yeah. And, and he was playing prince Mishkin the, the main character, you're going to take over his role and take over his role. So I went in, I guess, on Thursday, maybe or whatever to read for it, and they gave me the part, and you had 'til Monday to learn all no, no. They said, you, you you'll go you'll have weeks for her. So what you're learning a lot in the script and everything I could I, I can learn it over the weekend. It was this bold thing that I said, I mean, it was a huge apart. But I, I went home, I just sort of learned it page by page. I never went back over the whole thing again before I came in. So it stuck in there, somehow and I started playing on Tuesday night, I couldn't do that anymore. You couldn't do that. You'd very immediately. The fear would take over and you'd say I can't do this. I I couldn't the memorization now, I, I don't know how I, I had a younger brain, then were your parents supportive as an actor back, then you had to think acting, please don't do the but they became more supportive, the first time they saw you on the TV when they saw you on TV on the TV TV show, is it was, they did up the name has gone TV show that you were on back in probably nine thousand nine hundred fifty it was a history lesson. And Walter Cronkite was the emcee you're there and it was on. On sad. And back when I was a little boy, it was a big, big show, but they put it back on the air with Walter contract and you watched it with your parents know they were they were at the country club. They played golf on Saturdays so by dad was in, in the bar at Greenhill, and I came on the TV, and that made him really proud. And, and then on it was it was really know where you close as a, as, as a as a child, where you and your father, your parents, did you get along. You were unit different mindset where they conservative. Yeah. But my the both of them were were very athletic. So I once therapist, who said, what's the first image? You remember of your father, and I thought, oh, okay, we're out in the in the side yard in Wilmington, Delaware, where we Edmore gardens, and that first image was may was up a bat and my dad throwing balls at me. But I wasn't that interested. So, so when I was. In junior, high school when we really had phys Ed as when I was in the seventh grade. I think the, the guy was sending us out. You know to catch the ball. So when I did mine, it was great. Because somehow my dad all all that came in me. You always gave it the old college try whenever you're doing mother. It's because you knew me grownup. Right. But kid like. Well, you always like when I read about this, but you've always been wouldn't say always, but you've been openly, right? No, you haven't been how long did it take for you to be openly who I didn't come out or realize take charge till? Till I was. It was the summer. I turned twenty one. So I'm only one summer stock, you know, all summer stock theatre you learn a lot in summer style. Is that where you kind of were educated? Yeah. In many ways. Yeah. Twenty one years old now. Well, I started when I turned nineteen I went three summer but you're born with it. So you knew what young age. I'm having feelings or seeing, you know, I'm I'm a tractor two men. Right. Okay. So the first time I realized this, you know, the movie star is born with Judy Garland, and James, Mason. You mean the one that they just remain in listen? You have to listen to me now with Judy Garland. Sorry. All right. Both of their performances in stories born this was in the fifties. We're talking you know, you weren't even twinkle at that point. I was I was nothing but there's a scene very early in the in the movie where James Mason really drunk. He's a drunkard alcoholic, and he's in the bed when he gets home after he's met Judy Garland, and talk to her, and everything. And he's in this white t shirt shirt alight little short sleeved t shirt, and I and I started feeling really, really strange. Well, right now, I would have call it sexual or something, then I was, I was ten or eleven it was just these strange feelings about, but I, I didn't get an act on anything. You didn't have any no that were you nervous about these feelings, were they weren't right? They were wrong. What do you mean they were wrong? I grew up in Salisbury, Maryland, very flat and bigoted, part of the town. And what about your father and mother were they were they, they would you? Say liberal. No. So this is the secret, it was something I had to hold onto for years. I mean even when I started working with professional actors in regional theatres and stuff. I would I was uptight about because you play masculine characters. Did you kind of hide that most everybody did gay men because you, you feel that you lost, you lose your job McCarthyism or whatever all those take away your see they had to be really hard? It's hard enough being an actor. When you had to cover up, who you really know? Yeah, it's tricky. I mean, when did you tell your parents probably didn't happen till years years later? Oh, I thought it was going to be like, a lot of jokes and stuff. Well, it is. Here's what I like about this. Yeah, this is what I do. You're a funny guy. You're enormously talented guy. But I also like how it started. I like how your career started I like to see adversity faced things that people don't know about people that, you know, are in the industry that go God. Look, what he had to go through to become what he had to become. So to me. That's what I find interesting. I had a lot of dysfunction growing up as a child, I had daddy issues in mommy issues, and all these different issues. And, you know, a little suicidal, maybe during high school, and I kind of in free and open with, with all these things, which I think people who are listening, sort of kind of can relate to, so we don't have to talk about things, but as I started going around to schools and things. My dad had a kind of dementia. I don't know if it was Alzheimer's per se, but I would try to help them raise money for this and that, like, we didn't big all my grandfather. Who is dying from Alzheimer's now in my grandmother passed away from. So as I went to these schools and things I would see that they have they had gay clubs and I thought my God. It's a whole different time now that people are growing up accepting things like that. But I am from my parents, I, I, I mean, they knew I lived with men supposed to women, but they didn't think you were gay. I don't think they thought they stopped they blocked it never questions. You know, they never said a word they never says your father never wants. He really developed Alzheimer's. He never said anything to said I love you. I except when they both died. They knew who your lamb. Yeah. And they accepted it. What does that mean to you probably met the world? Yes. But in that's beautiful. I love you. Michael. I love you too.

I mean you've done you still I've seen you in many plays. And I know that Broadway's really thing you love acting love to work. Are you one of those people that if you don't work, you probably go crazy who I- miserable? When I don't have a job ahead of me. Explain the misery. Are you hard to be around? You'd have to ask them that. Yeah, we'll ask us. I am. Yeah, I am. I just it's like all my self worth I feel like oh my God. They've found me out. They found that John's miserable. He's not a happy person, you don't then I'm faking. I don't know what it just. And then I try to fix it. Do you go to therapy not anymore? I mean, you went for years, though. I graduated. I still go to faira p you gotta therapy, rob. I do not. Have you ever gone to therapy? Yeah. When I was a kid he has. Right. Because your mom, put you on some antidepressants because of the therapist, or she decided to do it yourself, I was kind of an introvert so she thought I was depressed and then my brother was already going to therapy because he was he had ADHD. How did you feel on it? I didn't feel that different on it. It didn't really help you or hurt. You know, not really. So they didn't see change. So they just get them off and become more Greg areas. No, no, no. No. I think I was only on it for like six months, a house. We what are we talking probably fifteen or two fifty brigade started? So you're trying to figure yourself out. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. It's tricky. Yeah, but you always liked women. Right. Yup. I was going to try and get deep with robbers. Uh-huh. No, I like this, and we'll get back to the misery point because I feel like I've learned to live with myself in a way that when I'm working, I have what's called structure when you work and you have to wake up every day in eight. Am and you work till Lil, eight hours. You come home you tired, and you do the same cyclical thing, every day, you sort of forget about life row while it's like, you know, like Billy Joel, you sort of forget the important things like I'm working I'm making money. I have purpose here. I am and the second you stop your you deal with you, and what you don't like and what you do like, and I've gone through this, I've gone through, like got I'm depressed. I want to get out of bed, or how do I get out of this? How do I face myself? How do I look in the mirror everyday and say, hey, would is this, maybe this is a good time to just reflect and not? Keep busy and not do all these things. And what is it like to just be you? And hang with you. Have you done that before I hang with me every day? I mean how long has it lasted though? How how long is every day is different? I mean can you last two three months without having a job and be all right with yourself. I would says it's hard it just. Yeah. But what is it is my insecure the idea this production of Juno? And the Paycock at the Mark taper here in LA with George Seaton. Really? Nice movie director directed. Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon, Maureen Stapleton cheese. They filmed it. They move the set down to a on one of those streets in Hollywood that used to be Charlie Chaplin's, Stu. Yeah. They moved the whole set down there, the day after we close to two days, and they're gonna film, it for video tape it to have it on record. And so when we'd almost finished Jack walked up to this market where they sold beer, and cheap that of to get a bunch of beers for the crew, and everything. So when they wrapped but he went up in his they were poor Irish people, so he went up in his costume, and he came back. Like white, as I mean he just was horrified. I said, Jack what happened he said. Well, there, I was buying the beer and. This guy comes up to me, that's like a little better dressed than I am. But, you know that he's you know, he's they're looking for money to get some beers. And you just came up to me and sort of pulled my coat. And he said, Jack Lemmon caught. Oh, you never work again. What the guy was drunk. And he saw him dressed like like he was right who hadn't worked for a long, long time. So he figured he was in jacks head. I could see that. I mean even with somebody like Jack Lemmon he came back thinking he's my God. I'm not I'm not going to work. Zep production didn't get good reviews at all. So he just they just kind of buy into this. Yeah. Well, we're insecure actors insecure but you've got to get over it. We've got to get over this, like, we've got to there's got to be something along the way that you say, hey, it's good enough. People say what have you done? I say, oh, I did seven years of small. I did two years of another show did two years of another show. I did some good movies. They did some bad movies. I'm enroll insatiable we all want to be better and better. But at the end of the day, when is it enough? One is when does John Glover look in the mirror, and go God, I've done tons of Broadway and tons of movies. I've done tons of shows. I've won Tony awards for God's sakes. I'm good. Just one. I'm Tony when other was a nominee, you Iran nominated for an EMMY two oh, five times. I've been on very well. K. Why haven't been nominated for an EMMY at all I was nominated for Uranus award, I believe Saturn. How many Iranians do you have? You do the accolades help you with your confidence. Do you like do receiving awards? I was an acolyte a church. And I wore this kind of black long thing with this white thing. I would carry the cross down the aisle, but. The center I'll put the cat. I'd like candles in put the candles out, I collect the money right at the end put him on. It was were you ever embarrassed by role? Who are just if I thought I wasn't good in. Yeah. What role did you think you aren't good again? I can't remember them real. You can't remember the bad ones where what roles where you good in you. Like I was fucking good, because I could tell you a greatest line of Luther you know, that I had a good time and we had a good time. We'd had a good time. You taught me a lot. I think he taught everybody a lot, even when Tom and I go on tour for these little signings, we had the q nays and Tom will always say, John Glover would a one of the best actors that ever lived, and I agree with them. And it is true. You have a certain confidence, a certain stature, certain, and it's a lot of experience, that it shows it shows, but there's also a kindness and versatility that I think that, you know, if people don't know you, they could see what they watch you watch reform. His even in that fucking show brimstone you like doing brimstone. Danielle why was the devil, you the devil came was also prizes and stuff. Do you ever want to play a good role? Do you ever want to play like somebody who's really charming and lovable and likable, and people like, you know, when I had trouble, I, I've trouble with roles like that, because they're, they're not challenging they are challenging to me.
