5 – Oliver did the intro!
Jimmy talks about his show and the intro video and Whitney Cummings being overly pretentious.
10 – Angry NNF Fan was in the zoom room for the show. He requested Oliver doing the reservation voicemail. Jimmy would have ended the show right then if he could have because of how funny it was.
Oliver comedically snatched the pop fly out of Jimmy’s hands is an analogy that Matt used just now. Comparing it to the Ken Griffey’s.
Jimmy talks about the guy who was talking in the zoom but apparently didn’t know he could be heard. Jimmy yelled at him and then felt guilty.

Back to Ping Pong and the Van Dykes. Bea Arthur has also been invited to these parties!
Lotta people don’t come and a lot of people do come.
Bea Arthur gets invited and doesn’t come. Twice she called a month after to ask about the party and apologize for not coming and needing an assistant. The same scenario happened numerous times. When she died, the obituary featured details that were provided by…her assistant.
Paula talks about reusing the plastic plates/utensils after parties. One party they ran out and had to get them out of the trash to reuse. Dick Van Dyke was sitting right next to the trash can. Paula believes he stopped eating right about that time.

Paula doesn’t care about professional sports. She’d prefer a selection process not dissimilar from Jury Duty.
Extend those warranties! Paula talks about how lucky she is to get so many reminders about her car warranty before they run out.
Back to the Barbara Boxer story. She stopped and talked with her, over her husband’s head, and finally the guy got up and gave her his seat. Paula thinks he was being sarcastic in retrospect, but she did switch seats with him.
1h25m – Paula admits that anything that gets said to her reminds her of something else she wants to say.
