Craig: (to the audience over the opening applause) ...I'm am also very excited as well, me too, I would be cheering but I already know me.
Craig: A great day for the state of Maine. The state of Maine today legalized gay marriage. (crowd cheers) Really? OK. Maine became comfortable with the idea after years of touching Canada. (Canada has allowed gay marriage for years now)
Craig: Alright I said it, Maine is gay for Canada. I said it.
Craig: Hey guess what, Bob Dylan's new album is number one on the charts. It's sold more than the Miley Cyrus record now, it's Miley's who is in second place. What? An old man on top of a young woman? This sounds like a party at Hugh Hefner's house.
Craig: Oh there was a big break through in the automotive world today in England. They've unveiled a chocolate fueled race car. This is true a car that runs on chocolate. YEAH! It weighs 3000 pounds and runs completely on chocolate, they're calling it the (Rush) Limbaugh-gini.
Craig: (talking about Carrie "Airhead" Prejean) I got very excited when I read that Miss California might be stripped, then I read further, of her title. So then I put my pants back on.
Nathan Fillion: America, they call it the giant melting pot. All cultures become, in Canada we are a cultural mosaic. Cultures come to Canada and they retain their culture-ness.
Craig: I see. And which culture wore leather kilts?
Nathan Fillion: I believe that was the Scottish bikers.
