Not a legitimate staring contest. Why? You're an Irish Catholic boy. That's right. And I'm an Irish Catholic girl. I'm one of how many? How many siblings? There are six kids in my family and I have eight. We grew up for high stakes and played that game. No gags in the background. Really? You guys put $100 bill on this table right now? Really? I would give you a two minute time limit and I would win. Well, on a minute and they can do anything you want. Anybody in the audience can do anything they want anything in it. Really? I will win. Won't this sort of hurt the talking segment? It might be a little detriment. That would be a class code. Okay, Well, do you have 100 bucks on you? could you lend me 100 way? Forget it. I don't have 100 bucks, E said. The checks keep coming, but they're not big checks. Thing like $18 a week. Yeah, you're well dressed. Thank you. This is one piece. It zips up the back. Now you know. Kathleen Turner said that. What an interesting woman she is. She's a fascinating woman. And she said, actually, during the commercial break, she said, I'd love to stick around cause she had to run said, I want to stick around because I want to do a whose voice is lower with Kate Mulgrew. She said that actually, it's true voices, she said, speaking like this. Her voice is considerably lower. But you have a great voice to you have. My voice has been the subject of much controversy this year, and I'm not kidding. What do you mean? A lot of people were very concerned about my voice, possibly as the Katherine. Now it's resonating in a very peculiar way. That's an echo in this chamber. What do you mean? People like fans? I have men. I think, what they printed in, they punch it into the Internet, said She sounds like a cross between a munchkin and a sort of Katharine Hepburn on speed. Really? People on the Internet said that I'm guy on the Internet. That was vicious nerds. What? Could they do that to you? Thank you. Yeah, really? And you don't, But you don't take that personally. You you've tried. I tried not to take that. Can you imagine? Okay, but But on the subject are getting That's a terrible blow, Catherine. Effort on speed. But I'm trying to run a starship. Okay.

I know There's no Scotty on your show. No more, Scotty. God bless his soul. Now, what makes you qualified that while we're on the subject, what makes you qualified to be a starship captain? That I think it harkens back to my youth. I was the oldest, the oldest. You're the oldest of eight oldest girl. The second oldest of eight. Bossy. A surrogate mother. I had to do a lot for my mother. She used to make me run in and check all the cribs, see if they were breathing. That's a fun shore. It was great fun. That's basically what I do on the ship. I'm check on. Everyone see their breathing. I think it's just a inherent really. Well, that's interesting. You think birth orders that important? Cause I'm the middle of six. Somebody told me. Yeah, I was the middle child fighting for attention, screaming for love. The only way I could get it was to get my own TV show constantly. Is this freaking people out? Uhh. But it's interesting. Birth order, they say, is very important. You were the oldest, which means that you were in charge. You know, I think we're empowered, but we're also probably I'm sorry. This microphone is right. Where is your microphone? That Z, um, I was empowered by my mother, but I think you also get a little demented about the whole thing. Eight Children is a lot of Children. That doesn't happen anymore. I mean, used Irish Catholic families like nine kids, 12 kids. I knew ah, family that lived not too far from my family. They had, like, 14 kids in my family productions were 16. The O'Rourke's were 18. It was nothing. I know. Kids were like meeting each other for the first time. You know, brothers and sisters, we're like getting together in the bathroom. It was crowded with four of us. See? He's your German, though, right? German, Swedish, German, Swedish. They're making, right? Yeah. My folks didn't get along much anyway. They had separate. Well, you don't wanna welcome to late night therapy, everybody. There's a couch right here. We'll get started. Things is helpful. I don't know what I think about the large family. I'm proud to be a member of it, but it's gone. It's not gonna happen anymore. I'm not gonna meet a woman who's gonna have you have a lately. They're still doing it in Ireland. They're still having 11. 50. Still doing something? Yes. You're still doing something. I spent the summer there last year and nothing changes. I'm always fascinated. I say you're such a strict Roman Catholics, which I applaud and admire. And yet there must be a great deal of sexual activity. I think when they're 18 kids, Yes, something's going on. E. I'm no scientist. They won't discuss it and they get very insensitive. No, no Catholics can't. Just talking to both. After Catholics can't talk about sex. I have women all the time. Come on the show And they start to talk about sex and they're coming on to me. It's an occupational hazard and I can't handle it. It's happened once. Okay? It never happened. Are you mad anyway, huh? I'm not married. Do you have a girlfriend? Yes, I dio Is it good? Yes. I'm very happy with my girlfriend. Is what Good? Your relationship with your girlfriend? Oh, yeah. I think some people misinterpret when you said Is it good? Don't nobody misinterpreted. Yeah, there was a There was a guy e think somebody misinterpreted? I thought Would you say you're in love? Oh, no. Let's not talk. I will not talk about my private life on this show. I'm Irish Catholic. I can't do it. But now he's gonna turn it. Yeah. Let's talk about your personal life. You in love? I am in love. Really? That's good for you. Who is? This person is good for me. Uh, he's a bit of an enigma. You see me? I'm getting a little nervous about you. See, It's not easy. Yes, it's hard. It's hard because I'm old, you're not. I'm too old, really to discuss my private life. You're not. When I was younger, I was much freer about it. I'm happy. I'm happier than I've ever been before. That's very nice. That's a very nice thing. And he is a contributing factor, a large contributing factor. Well, that's nice thing to say, but I think I think it would be a funny Hallmark card. I'm very happy, and you are a large contributing factor. I wrote. They have them. If they don't have it now, they should have it. Uh, now I I heard that you were on the subject of Irish and Irish people and Irish culture and Irish lore that you could do an Irish jig. Is that true? Please, Frank Smiley. Well, I Frank Smile has been berating me back. Frank smile. I should explain to people at home is an idiot who works on our show on his job. He's right over there. Okay, E. Anyway, Frank's job is to Badger, is to badger the talent to the guests that come on the show into doing things they don't want to do and make them miserable is that I thought it was pretty remarkable. We had a 45 minute conversation. This is a pre interview right now. You know what I love? You know what I love is this is what Frank tells me. Oh, yeah, she wants to do the jig. I know you did to Frank, didn't you, Frank? He'll never work again. No, he didn't say that. In fairness, in fairness to Frank, with me at the door with the Caylee shoes, he says, the band's got the jig. You gotta do it. You got it. You don't have no, no, no, no, no. He didn't say that. In fairness, Frank Smiley said to me, she's not sure about doing the jig. You could try and coax her into doing the jig, and the audience can hoot and share, and they'll be there in credit. Passionately. Wait a minute. We have a policy on this show, though it's only fair if the guests won't do the jig, I will do the jig good. It's no good. I know it's gonna It's gonna be crappy, but Max just I'll do the Jake. Kate Mulgrew doesn't have to do it And that way, other talented people watching right now won't be afraid to come on the show. Oh, come on, Join way. No, thank you. What is he doing? Come on. Is that how you doing now? That's very good. Hands down. Was my gig so bad? Take a break. We'll be right back with seats. We'll see in a second.
