>> HE WRITES AND PRODUCES

THE SHOW, THEY JUST SPELL IT

OUT FOR ME FON ETICALLY ON

THE MONITOR.

>> THERE IS NOTHING GOOD

ABOUT THIS.

>> HE'S GOING GIVE YOU A

SENSE OF SHAKESPEARIAN

ELEGANCE TO THIS PROGRAM.

HE'S GOING TO LEND CLASS AND

STYLE.

YOU KNOW, 20 MINUTES INTO

THE SHOW, HE'S GOING TO

SERVE TEA, 20 MINUTES INTO

THE SHOW.

TEA AND CRUMPETS FOR THE

ENTIRE AUDIENCE.

>> WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS,

THREE MONTHS.

I MEANS THAT'S A LOT OF NICK

AT NIGHT.

>> HERE'S WHAT IS SO

INTERESTING.

THIS HAS TURNED NEW SOME

RESPECTS, AND I DON'T SAY

THIS WITHOUT ANY AFFECTION,

IN SOME RESPECTS IT HAS

TURNED YOU INTO AN OLD

JEWISH MAN.

>> WELL.

>> THE INFLECTION, DID YOU

ONE OF THESE, I MEAN WHY.

IT'S A LOT OF NICK AT

KNIGHT.

YOU HAVE BEEN TO THE JERSEY

SHORE YET THIS YEAR?

I WAS THERE THIS WEEKEND.

IT'S COMING BACK, BABY, THE

JERSEY SHORE.

THEY'VE REBUILT IT AS FAST

AS, I MEAN IT WAS EVEN OVER

THE TWO WEEK THAT I WAS

THERE PREVIOUSLY THEY HAVE

THROWN UP BUILDINGS THAT I

NEVER NEW EXISTED BEFORE.

>> SOMEPLACES ARE IN FOR A

ROUGH GO BETWEEN WHERE YOU

GUYS HAVE A PLACE AND WHERE

WE HAVE A PLACE AND WHERE WE

MEET FOR ICE CREAM,

SOMEPLACES ARE GOING TO I

HAVE A ROUGH G THERE IS ONE

TOWN, LOST 152 HOMES.

AND THEN SOUTH OF THAT,

ORTLEY BEACH, NORMANDY BEACH,

THESE FOLKS.

>> THEY GOT CRUSHED.

>> BUT ALL THOSE AREAS.

>> WHERE I GREW UP, SEA

BRITE WAS OUR HOME.

>> MAX'S HOT DOGS.

>> MAXES OR THE WINDMILL,

GOT TO BE FAIR.

BUT I AM A SORRY.

BUT THERE ARE --

>> MAXES.

>> THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD

ORGANIZATIONS.

>> LET'S SETTLE IT.

>> IT'S MAXES.

>> NO, IT'S MAXES FOR ME BUT

THE WINDMILL AS A

FAMILY-OWNED INSTITUTION, I

THINK WE HAVE TO BE PROPER

ABOUT IT.

LIKE I'M A HUFFMAN'S ICE

CREAM GUY, YOU TOOK TO US A

DIFFERENT PLACE.

>> I'M JUST-- I JUST AM

LACTOSE INTOLERANT.

>> I KNEW WE WERE GOING

THERE.

>> HEY, SPEAKING OF THE

PRESIDENT, LET ME ASK YOU

THIS.

SO THERE'S A LOT OF TALK,

THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

CRACKING DOWN ON

PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION,

DO YOU THINK THEY'RE READING

YOUR E-MAILS BECAUSE I HAVE

E-MAILED YOU AND SAID OH,

PHILLY THINGS, DO YOU THINK

THERE IS SOMEONE AT DOJ WHO

IS DOING ONE OF THESE.

>> I HOPE SO.

>> OH, WOW, MY EYES ARE

BLEEDING.

>> I HOPE SO THERE WERE SOME

GUYS OUTSIDE WANTING TO TALK

TO YOU WHEN WE'RE OVER HERE.

NO, I, THIS IS-- YOU KNOW,

LEAKS ARE ACTUALLY A BIG

PART OF AND LATELY HAVE BEEN

OF OUR DEMOCRACY.

LEAKS ARE HOW WE HAVE

LEARNED ABOUT-- A LOT OF

STORIES.

>> EXACTLY.

>> ESPECIALLY IN THE LAST

TEN YEARS IN THE WAR ON

TERRORISM.

SO I THINK WE WILL FIND OUR

WAY.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS IN A

ROUGH SPOT OVER THIS.

AND TO A LESSER EXTENT THE

PRESIDENT.

>> BUT DO YOU THINK THAT IT

WAS-- THERE'S ALL THESE

SCANDALS.

THERE'S NOTHING LITERALLY TO

CONNECT THE WHITE HOUSE AS

THOUGH THERE IS COORDINATION

INVOLVED.

BUT THESE ARE CERTAINLY WERE

REPUBLICANS WHO HAVE FOR

FIVE YEARS DESPERATELY

THROWN THEIR POOP AT THE

WALL TO TRY AND GET

SOMETHING TO STICK TO THIS

GUY.

THESE ARE TWO THINGS THAT

ARE WORTHY OF SCRUTINY, NO?

>> I THINK BETWEEN BENGHAZI,

THE IRS AND NOW THIS, THIS

IS IN PART WHAT HAPPENS TO

SECOND TERMS.

WE WATCHED THIS WITH BILL

CLINTON, REMEMBER.

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED IN

HIS SECOND TERM BETWEEN

MONICA LEWINSKY AND

WHITEWATER.

SEE THIS IS-- .

>> Jon: BUT SEE THIS S I

DON'T LIKE TO GROUP THESE

THINGS INTO DIFFERENT

THINGS.

FIRST OF ALL, BENGHAZI, THAT

IS A SITUATION, THEY ISSUED

AN ARB ON THAT AND THINK

SHOWED THAT THE STATE

DEPARTMENT WAS TRULY LACKING

THROUGHOUT ITS COMMUNICATION

AND ALL THAT, THAT IS A

SEPARATE THING.

THE IRS TARGETING SPECIFIC

GROUPS THAT NEEDS TO BE

ADDRESSED.

IF THAT WAS DRIVEN BY THE

WHITE HOUSE WHICH IT DOESN'T

SEEM TO IN ANY WAY BE

CONNECTED TO THEM T IS STILL

SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE

ADDRESSED.

BUT THE DEPARTMENT OF

JUSTICE, CRIMINALIZING

JOURNALISM, I THIS SI AN

ENORMOUS, THAT IS NOT TO SAY

THAT ALL LEAKS ARE CREATED

EQUAL.

BUT HAVE THEY EVER LISTED A

REPORTER AS A COCONSPIRATOR

IN A CRIMINAL CASE.

>> BY THIS TIME TOMORROW ALL

I CAN SAY IS WE WILL KNOW

MORE.

WE WILL HAVE HEARD FROM THE

ATTORNEY GENERAL.

I THINK THIS IS THE WEEK.

THEY'RE GOING TO TRY TO GET

A LITTLE MORE TRANSPARENT.

>> WERE YOU IN ON THE

MEETING WHERE IT WAS OFF THE

RECORD, WAS ANYBODY FROM

NBC.

>> OUR ORGANIZATION WAS,

YES.

>> WHAT DID THEY SAY?

FIRST OF ALL WE BELIEVED IT

WAS --

>> THIS IS OFF THE RECORD.

>> WE BELIEVED IT WAS

BENEFICIAL AND NET-NET THAT

IT WAS BETTER TO GO THAN NOT

TO GO.

>> Jon: WHAT DID THEY SERVE

WATCH.

DOW SERVE FOR THAT KIND OF

THING, HAVE SOME CAKE.

>> I'M A LIAR!

HOW DID IT GO?

>> I'LL ONLY SAY THIS.

IT'S BEEN UNUSUAL TO BE IN A

WAY ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WAR

ON TERRORISM.

I HAVE SEEN THE END EFFECT

OF A DRONE.

I HAVE WATCHED IT CARRIED

OUT ON A LIVE TELEVISION.

I HAVE SEEN THE FILE

BUILDING, THE TARGET

ACQUISITION.

>> I WATCH HOMELAND.

>> IT IS A RARE THING.

AND THAT'S THE OTHER END OF

THIS.

>> BUT NO, BUT THEY LEAK

WHEN IT'S TO THEIR

ADVANTAGE.

>> OF COURSE THEY DO.

>> AND THEY ALLOW THAT TO GO

THROUGH.

BUT WHEN IT IS TO THEIR

DISADVANTAGE THEY HAVE BEEN

VERY DRACONIAN.

>> WHEN THEY ARGUE NATIONAL

SECURITY THEY DO IT WITH THE

AUTHORITY OF, WELL, YOU'VE

SEEN.

>> SURE.

>>> YEAH.

>> WE'RE TO THE GOING TO END

THERE.

WE JUST CAN'T.

WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT

SOMETHING HAPPY.

THREE MONTHS, REALLY?

>> MAN!

YEAH.

>> ARE YOU GOING TO COME,

YOU SHOULD COME OVER.

>> DON'T YOU WANT TO DIRECT.

>> I DON'T WANT TO DIRECT.

>> THREE MONTHS SAY LONG

TIME, I'M JUST SPEAKING ON

BEHALF OF THOSE OF US THAT

LOVER YOU.

>> LET ME TELL YOU THIS, AND

I APPRECIATE THAT VERY MUCH.

I WILL MISS THE PEOPLE MORE

THAN THE PEOPLE WILL MISS

ME.

THAT SAUL MI GOING SAY.

>> NO, I DOUBT THAT VERY,

VERY HIGHLY.

>> LET ME SAY THIS.

WHEN I AM THERE-- SKETS EL

DOWN.

I SAW THAT.

IN LIFE, IN GENERAL, PEOPLE

DO NOT APPLAUD FOR YOU.

LIKE WHEN I'M IN THE MIDDLE

EAST AND GI INTO A

RESTAURANT, PEOPLE ARE GOING

TO GO HE GOT THE FALL AVEL

SO THAT I'M NOT GOING TO BE

GETTING ITS LOVE THAT I GET

FOUR NIGHTS A WEEK, 22

MINUTES A NIGHT HERE ON

VIACOM'S COMEDY CENTRAL

PROPERTY, ALSO WITH

WORKAHOLICS IN-- AND "THE

COLBERT REPORT," I WILL BE

>> YEAH.

>> I DON'T REGARD YOU AS

MIKEY THE MARKETER YOU BUT

JOB OF MASSIVE PROPORTION.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ILLITERATION.
