  • -There he is. Martin Short, everybody.

  • -Hey! How are you? -Thank you so much...

  • -Hello, James. -...for being on my show.

  • You know I love you. -I'm honored.

  • -Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • -Thank you. And, by the way, I don't know

  • what you have on your lens, but you look fantastic.

  • Really. Is it the bleach injections?

  • Is the hydroxychloroquine -- What are you doing?

  • You could be a third Cuomo. Really.

  • -[ Laughs ] -Really.

  • And even though we're 2,400 miles apart...

  • [ Sniffs ] Wow. That is pungent cologne.

  • I'll tell you. That's -- That's strong.

  • English Leather I think. Or is it...?

  • I don't know which one, but it's pleasing.

  • But I watch you every night.

  • And you've been doing brilliant from-home shows, really.

  • But, you know, I will say that -- that you have a slide.

  • -I do. I have a slide in the house, yeah.

  • -That's just -- That's very odd.

  • Why is it that I feel that you sleep in a racecar bed?

  • Is that impossible?

  • -[ Laughs ] Who's telling?

  • -Or a bird's nest, a bird's nest where big birds fly in

  • and you go, "I'm just a little egg."

  • There's a youthful quality to you that's pleasing

  • and at the same time alarming.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • Well, I like to keep people on the edge of their seat.

  • You know? That's what I do.

  • Marty, can I talk to you about what's going on right now

  • with everything? Obviously, the pandemic,

  • but then, you know, the protests and everything.

  • How are you dealing with everything?

  • -You know, I'm like everyone.

  • I just can't believe what I'm seeing, but I'm --

  • I'm also aware that this is a defining moment in history.

  • And even though we've been on

  • the precipice of great change in the past,

  • when I think of, like, Sandy Hook

  • and how we thought everything was going to change

  • with gun laws and nothing happened.

  • Even though President Obama had every parent

  • of those 20 children at the Rose Garden, and nothing happened.

  • I think this is different. I feel wildly optimistic.

  • And I have a sense in my heart that this time it really looks

  • like change might actually happen.

  • -Good.

  • -So I'm -- I'm feeling very positive.

  • -You've been -- You're in L.A. right now, right?

  • -I am. -Did you start there

  • in quarantine or did you end up there?

  • Where were you when -- -No, no.

  • Steve Martin and I were on tour in the United Kingdom.

  • -Really? -Yeah.

  • In March, President Trump got on and said, you know,

  • everyone had to leave in 24 hours from Europe.

  • And so we frantically, you know, got flights and got back.

  • We later -- You know, he left out that although

  • if you're in Ireland or the United Kingdom, that's fine,

  • or if you're an American citizen, but we didn't --

  • He forgot that part. -How have you been --

  • How have you been spending the time in quarantine?

  • Just a lot of...?

  • -I've been watching television, old reruns.

  • By the way, when did you replace Jay?

  • I've been so far behind.

  • I've been watching, again, old reruns.

  • I -- You know, I finally -- I saw the last episode

  • of "St. Elsewhere."

  • Totally surprised by that. Very moved.

  • And, you know, I started out this pandemic knowing nothing

  • about the Property Brothers,

  • and now I know that Jonathan is the spunky one.

  • -[ Laughs ] Ohh.

  • -The other thing I've been doing, which is hilarious,

  • is I've been photocopying --

  • You know, every time there's a --

  • something horrible that happens in Los Angeles,

  • like, a fire or something, I'm usually away.

  • And one of my kids says, "Dad, we're loading the car.

  • There's fires. What should we put in?"

  • And I was always say, "I guess old photo albums."

  • So while I was watching, you know, these old shows --

  • I'd never seen "Downton Abbey."

  • I watched six years of that -- or six seasons of that.

  • I started -- I got a photocopy machine,

  • and I've been taking old pictures starting from 1913 on,

  • transferring them to my computer, then I play with them.

  • I think, "Gee. Grandma looks tired there.

  • What if I got rid of her bags?" So I do that.

  • And then I put it in a file and think,

  • "Gee. Grandma looks kinda hot."

  • So I'm making people who died 50 years ago

  • feel better about themselves.

  • -This is a show right there. I'd watch this show.

  • -What have you been watching? What have you been watching?

  • -I love any reality show. I've been watching so much.

  • I've watched "Below Deck" and "Survivor" and any reality show.

  • I'm -- I'm just obsessed with it right now.

  • -Yeah, I don't -- I don't really

  • watch any reality television show.

  • But, you know, remember, I'm a reader, so it's different.

  • -[ Laughs ] I see. I see.

  • But I've tried to -- I've tried to keep busy.

  • Exercise. I started jump-roping.

  • -Really? -Yeah.

  • I think I'm going to bring back the jump rope.

  • -I would like to see that.

  • What are you wearing when you jump-rope?

  • -I'm completely naked. -Wow.

  • That must be the first time

  • you've felt having a small penis as an advantage.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -Not going to hurt anybody. -Yeah, yeah.

  • Well, I didn't want to tell you,

  • but what do you think I'm using for the jump rope?

  • -Ohh! -Ohh.

  • I miss hanging out with you, though, we did actually --

  • How great -- How wild was that Zoom call

  • that we were on, for real? -Oh, that was hilarious.

  • That was -- Tell them about the Zoom call.

  • -We -- Well, we have a mutual friend...

  • and he said, "Let's get some friends together," and --

  • So we can all just Zoom and just kind of try, you know,

  • get through the quarantine

  • and just talk about our stories and blah, blah, blah.

  • And I go, "Okay." So we --

  • I didn't even know that you were -- you were on.

  • No one knows who was going to be on it, right?

  • -No, no, no.

  • -So, here's my version of the story, because it's bizarre.

  • I did mine on an iPad,

  • so I could only see six squares on mine.

  • So mine's like a "Brady Bunch." That's all I can see.

  • I can't see everybody that's on the call.

  • -You had to hit "gallery." -I didn't know that.

  • -Well, you're young. You're young.

  • -I think it's different on an iPad or something like that.

  • For an iPad, you have to swipe it or something.

  • Anyways -- So I saw -- It was you.

  • I saw Sandler, Rock, Spade, Guy, and then -- I forget who --

  • And then you, but then everyone kept reacting to everyone.

  • "Hey, Leo! Hey, what's up, man?"

  • And I go, "Leo's here?" I don't see anyone.

  • I couldn't -- -It was insane.

  • Julia Roberts and Danny were there.

  • You know, Beck -- It was the most eclectic

  • famous Zoom in the history of Zooms maybe.

  • -You remember the first time we met?

  • -I do, vividly. We met in September of 1999.

  • And it was at the 25th anniversary of "SNL."

  • And they had a big, big, big show kind of like the 40th.

  • But it was the 25th. But everyone was in black tie.

  • And all humanity of celebrity was there.

  • And I remember Steve and Chevy and I

  • did a thing as the Three Amigos in our full Amigos costume

  • and kind of bombed, I remember.

  • Kind of bombed to the point that when I then took my seat back

  • in the audience, Billy Crystal said,

  • "Hey, Marty, when do you go on?"

  • -[ Laughs ] That's a good one.

  • -But I remember at the party afterwards, and, again,

  • it was a million people,

  • and every time Nancy, my wife, and I

  • looked over, you were kind of there like this.

  • You were like 23 or something. You just started.

  • -Yeah.

  • -And she said, "Should we invite that adorable puppy dog over?"

  • And I said, "Yeah." And you came over.

  • And you said, "Okay, so, let me say this.

  • You did a special called 'I, Martin Short, Goes Hollywood.'

  • If you say any line from it, I can say the next line

  • because I've seen it over 150 times."

  • -I mean, I wore -- I wore that tape out.

  • I would watch it every single day, at least 20 times a day.

  • It's so brilliant. I was freaking out to meet you.

  • -Yeah. And -- And then after that, we became friends.

  • -Yeah.

  • -Right away, I was struck by --

  • You had such an actual authenticity

  • about your enthusiasm toward people that you --

  • And it was very... -Well, I love you.

  • Do you mind sticking around for another segment? Is that okay?

  • -You know, I'm kind of jammed, um, but sure.

  • Let me clear some -- Let me clear out my schedule.

  • -More with Martin Short when we come back, everybody.

-There he is. Martin Short, everybody.
