  • >> Stephen: WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.

  • YOU KNOW, DURING THESE LONG MONTHS OF QUARANTINE, WE'VE ALL

  • LEARNED A LOT.

  • FOR INSTANCE, BEFORE THIS YEAR, I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS POSSIBLE TO

  • HAVE NIGHT SWETS DURING A DAYDREAM.

  • WITH SO MANY PEOPLE KEPT OUT OF THEIR OFFICES AND AWAY FROM THE

  • CROWDED CITIES, THIS PANDEMIC HAS ALSO ALLOWED MANY AMERICANS

  • TO RECONNECT WITH NATURE.

  • IN FACT, ONE OF MY HEAD WRITERS, JAKE, HAS USED HIS TIME WORKING

  • REMOTELY TO SHARE A HABITAT WITH WILD ANIMALS.

  • TONIGHT HE FILES THIS VIDEO JOURNAL.

  • ( BIRDS CHIRPING ) >> I'VE ALWAYS BEEN FASCINATED

  • BY THE NATURAL WORLD.

  • AND WHEN THE PANDEMIC CAME, I GOT THE RARE OPPORTUNITY TO

  • OBSERVE WILD CREATURES IN THEIR NATURAL HABITAT.

  • I HAVE BEEN LIVING AMONG MY KIDS.

  • BEFORE QUARANTINE, I KNEW VERY LITTLE OF THESE SMALL, BIPEDAL

  • HOMINIDES.

  • I WOULD SEE THEM IN PICTURES, OVERHEAR THEIR CALL OR CATCH

  • GLIMPSES OF THEIR RITUAL DANCES.

  • NOW, AFTER OBSERVING THEM UP CLOSE WITH THEIR HUMAN EMOTIONS

  • AND FEATURES, I FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHY SCIENTISTS

  • ESTIMATE THEIR D.N.A. IS UP TO 50% IDENTICAL TO MY OWN.

  • I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CAPTURE SOME INCREDIBLE FOOT ANNUAL OF THEM,

  • BECAUSE THEY JUST TAKE MY PHONE AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE IT IS

  • FOR MOST OF THE DAY.

  • I'VE DISCOVERED THAT THERE ARE FAR MORE OF THEM THAN I EVER

  • WOULD HAVE PRESUMED.

  • I'VE GIVEN THEM NAMES.

  • THE TALL ONE I CALL STRYKER.

  • THE MIDSIZED RON, RUMBLE FOOT.

  • AND THE SMALLEST, BENJI, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HIS MOM KEEPS

  • CALLING HIM, AND I'M PRETTY SURE IT'S HIS NAME.

  • THEY APPEAR TO HAVE A HIERARCHICAL SOCIETY, BUT IT

  • SEEMS LIKE THEY'RE MISSING AN AUTHORITY FIGURE.

  • THIS WEEK, THE ALPHA LOCKED EYES WITH ME.

  • I THINK I MIGHT BE EARNING HIS RESPECT.

  • I'VE BEEN KEEPING A JOURNAL OF MY OBSERVATIONS, AND,

  • APPARENTLY, THEY GOT TO THIS, TOO.

  • IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'VE ALSO BEEN OBSERVING ME.

  • I LIKE TO BELIEVE THAT I TAUGHT THEM THINGS, LIKE FRACTIONS AND

  • SPELLING.

  • BUT I BELIEVE THEY'VE TAUGHT ME SO MUCH MORE.

  • I DON'T REMEMBER ANY OF IT RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE I'M REALLY TIRED.

  • ( SCREAMING ) I'M REALLY TIRED.

  • WHAT WAS THIS?

  • WHAT IS THIS?

  • AND I BELIEVE WITH THE EXPERIENCES WE'VE SHARED THEY

  • MIGHT ONE DAY ACCEPT ME AS ONE OF THEIR OWN.

  • GUYS.

  • NO, NO, NO, NO.

  • NO!

  • GUYS.

  • I THINK-- I THINK YOU BROKE MY PHONE.

  • I THINK YOU BROKE MY PHONE.

  • >> Stephen: STAY SAFE, JAKE.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
