  • (applause) How are you?

  • Yeah, I'm all right.

  • Everything good, the family's good?

  • You got married since I saw you last.

  • That's right, couple months ago, yeah.

  • Congratulations. Thank you very much.

  • You know, it's a good thing.

  • It is a good thing. To quote Martha Stewart.

  • (laughs)

  • You're, I read this thing about your wife.

  • I don't know if this is true,

  • but your wife, Mary Steenburgen,

  • said somewhere that she can't go to sleep

  • at night unless she watches "Cheers."

  • Yeah, yeah, first, there's two rules.

  • One is she goes to sleep first, or else she stays up

  • and wakes me up and I have to get back up.

  • So she kind of snuggles in my arm

  • and I prefer The History Channel, myself.

  • I like to see bridges being built and things like that.

  • Constructive things, civilization marching on.

  • Yeah, I've seen the Golden Gate built

  • about four times, and that's mine.

  • But so she watches me on "Cheers"

  • and kind of cuddles me at the same time.

  • It's this sense around the whole thing.

  • I would be, I mean, I would love the idea

  • of watching myself while someone cuddled me.

  • That's like the ultimate narcissistic dream.

  • (laughs)

  • It is. Did you ever,

  • I mean, it must be- You caught me.

  • I was making this her foible, it's really mine.

  • You're like, wake up, Mary,

  • I'm on TV. Wake up,

  • wanna watch "Cheers?" (laughs)

  • And that's the real story. How about "Becker,"

  • how about a miniseries, anything, just watch me.

  • A friend of mine actually once went over to Regis's house

  • 'cause he was gonna visit someone in Regis's family,

  • and he just wanted to say hi to Regis

  • and he ducked into the room and it was while "Millionaire"

  • was on, and Regis was watching "Millionaire,"

  • and the friend was like "Hi," and he's like, "Quiet, quiet!"

  • (laughs)

  • And he was literally like, "I'm over there,

  • and yet I'm here, I'm there and I'm here."

  • And he was like, "What?" (laughs)

  • But he's a wonderful man.

  • He is a wonderful man.

  • "Cheers," I mean, I know, people are constantly trying

  • to come up with a show that was as successful and enduring

  • as that show, and they seem to come up with maybe one

  • of those every 15 years or something.

  • It was just so popular.

  • What was that like when you first realized

  • this is becoming a craze, this is becoming a mania?

  • In the 80s, I was younger.

  • It was rock and roll, it really was,

  • for a little while there.

  • I remember the first time it kind of hit me.

  • We all got invited back to do something here in New York,

  • some network shindig thing, and it was a huge building

  • with a huge party, and elevators and escalators.

  • And it was my first kind of groupie, Sam Malone groupie,

  • just thought I was God's gift to man.

  • And she kind of followed me around and it was

  • quite charming, quite charming.

  • Then at one point in the evening

  • she kind of lost, I lost her, she got lost or something,

  • and there was these escalators, one going up

  • and one going down, and "Cheers" group is going up

  • and, no, we were going down and she was going up,

  • and as she, she went "Ooh," saw me,

  • and then as she got a little higher and saw the back

  • of my head she saw my bald spot

  • and she went, "Oh, burst my bubble."

  • (laughs) And she was gone,

  • I never had another group after that,

  • that was my one and only groupie.

  • That's terrible.

  • Never take an elevator, escalator.

  • Escalator, yeah, just walk.

  • There are a lot of fans who probably assume

  • that you are Sam Malone and that you're that guy,

  • that you're that jocky, kind of slick character.

  • Is that a problem for you?

  • You must have a lot of fans that think that's who you are.

  • It makes Mary have hysterics,

  • 'cause I am the most unhip man on the planet.

  • I don't know anything about sports-

  • No, I beg to differ. (laughs)

  • We'll have a contest. We'll have this out

  • later on, the two of us running through a field, see who-

  • Ministry of Silly Walks.

  • Yeah, exactly.

  • But I developed this kind of in self-defense,

  • 'cause I go into a bar, I go past a sports bar

  • or any kind of drinking festivity and a jock will go,

  • "Hey, how about those dah dah dah dah?"

  • Or "Sammy, give me a," and I've developed

  • this generic kind of response.

  • It's a sound, but it satisfies everybody.

  • I just go, "Hey."

  • (laughs)

  • That works. It works.

  • It means that I'm with you, you are so right, my friend.

  • That thing you just said, that was so right.

  • Today we got ahold of, we got ahold of a family calendar

  • that you and your family made up,

  • and it's a nice idea, you want to make people laugh,

  • and so you had everyone in your family pose

  • a different month, doing some kind of interpretive dance.

  • Now, this is Mary, this is the one who can't go to sleep.

  • This is Mary, she's the camp counselor.

  • She gets us to do the crazy, really, you'll see,

  • insane things, but this year she decided

  • the world needed to laugh, or our little world.

  • And so she decided to pose us all as Alvin Ailey wannabes.

  • And she'd got the little dance book,

  • "Modern Dance" out, and assigned the poses,

  • and I am forever known now in my neck of the woods

  • as Mr. July. (laughs)

  • Well, let's just take a look at, this is nice.

  • Look at this photo for July, I thought this,

  • (laughs) that's pretty impressive.

  • (cheers) Pretty impressive.

  • Thank you.

  • First of all- Hey. Hey.

  • (laughs)

  • You're not gonna get those anymore.

  • Those guys are now gonna be like, ohh.

  • I couldn't do that, you'd have to saw my leg off

  • and put it up here for me to do that.

  • Oh you could do it, you could do it.

  • No, I mean, how do you, do you yoga, how do you get to be-

  • No, you do that just once.

  • Oh, you did that once. Just once-

  • You heard a snapping sound. And you retire, yes, I mean-

  • You can literally, so you're up here,

  • now you're seeing unpleasant things, all right,

  • I don't wanna do that. Yeah, sorry.

(applause) How are you?
