69. The Pod Goes Abroad

On a very special episode of the pod recorded in Dublin, the guys reflect on their first ever international tour, playing Royal Albert Hall in London and 3Arena in Dublin.

Megan Ganz: Do you guys want to tell the podcast uh, fans, what we’re doing here?

Glenn Howerton: Okay. We’re in Ireland.

Charlie Day: We are in Ireland.

Rob McElhenney: We are in Dublin, Ireland.

Glenn: We’re in Dublin.

Rob: Just had a pretty wild night.

*Irish music playing*

*Crowd Cheering*

Dennis: I say if you’re gonna do a racist stereotype, you better do it right.

Dee: Top of the morning, you filthy lads. I’m fixin’ to have a hell of a time in this here mobile pub.

Mac: Irish honor system. Please serve yourselves, put the money in the bucket. Thank you.

Charlie: Uh, I don’t think the Irish honor system’s a thing, man.

Mac: Oh, it’s a thing. It’s an ancient Irish tradition. Know your history bro.

Charle: You got drunks. You got Irish people. You got um, I guess that’s the same thing.

*At the Dublin Live Show*

Charlie: A toast to Ireland. Raise your glass.

Rob: To the Irish.

*Crow cheering*

Glenn: Anybody else out there, uh, drunk? Like me? And been drinking all day?

Rob: Green man, bringing out the brown nectar of the gods.

Charlie: That was impressive, ‘cause I can say from experience, he can’t see shit right now. I don’t know what I’m doing right now. What is this, a podcast?

Meg: I think we should talk about It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Would you guys like that?

Charlie: It’s about time.

Rob: Don’t you fuckin’ start. ‘Cause–

Glenn: See.

Rob: Rob Justice might actually come out on the stage.

Meg: All right.

Glenn: See.

*Music and cheering*

*Opening credits music*

*At the bar*

Rob: I’ve never performed in front of that big of crowd before, have you?

Charlie: No. That was double the size of I think, any of the shows we’ve done. Uh–

Rob: It sounded like it.

Charlie: We did London the night before. Royal Albert Hall. That was pretty sweet.

Glenn: Amazing.

Charlie: Last night we did Dublin. And, ‘bout what? 9,000 people in the arena?

Glenn: Something like that. I know it’s a 9,000 seater. I don’t–and it was full.

Charlie: And a little shoutout to the fans here in Ireland. Who were amazing.

Meg: Yeah.

Glenn: Yeah.

Rob: They were great in London. They were.

Charlie: They were great in London too.

*At the London Live Show*

Rob: I thought that the British would be a little bit more reserved. These people seem very drunk.

Glenn: Uh–

*Crowd cheering*

Glenn: How many of you guys are hammered?

*Crowd cheering*

Charlie: All right.

Glenn: How many of you actually have to work tomorrow?

*Crowd cheering*

Charlie: Ayo!

*At the bar*

Glenn: It was pretty rowdy. In a good way.

Charlie: Yeah.

Rob: Rowdy in a good way.

Glenn: Made me feel good in my heart.

Meg: *Laughing*

Rob: It was the first time–

Glenn: And my ego.

Rob: It was the first time that we ever–

Meg: Which is very near the heart.

Glenn: Deep inside the ego.

Charlie: I think it’s located somewhere near the heart.

Glenn: It’s right next to the heart.

Charlie: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Glenn: *Laughter*

Meg: It surrounds it.

Rob: It was the first time we got a safety briefing. Of like–

Glenn: Right.

Rob: –if things get out of hand, this is–this is what’s going to happen. Here’s the protocol.

Charlie: Guys, how’s your, your–

Glenn: Our bowles?

Charlie: We may seem a little groggy in this podcast.

Glenn: Buddy, I’m gonna be a bleary eyed bitch in this, in this particular podcast. I'm not sleeping well, I'm not sleeping enough. And I am drinking a lot.

Charlie: And then today is sort of our day of rest and we're gonna go to a Wrexham game.

Rob: It will not be restful for me.

Charlie: And it will not be restful. And it will be stressful. And I don’t imagine when we get there it will be restful at all.

Rob: No, no. It’s, it’s very exciting. Um, it's very stressful at this point of the season. Um, I, I’ve talked about this in live shows but I haven’t in our podcast. I got double styes. I got a stye here, and a stye here.

Glenn: Wait, you got another one? His buddy showed up?

Rob: Yeah, well no. This one finally went away. And this one's just not going anywhere.

Glenn: Oh so you–

Rob: Well, it was like kind of pulled up here and now it's like, it's going away.

Glenn: It’s moving around.

Charlie: It’s too much stress.

Rob: But I have a feeling it’s gonna come back. But I talked to an optometrist, and he said, “Well, yes, it's a clogged oil.” But I said “Okay, what can cause that?” And he goes, “Well, it could be caused by a certain kind of particulate in the air, a lack of sleep, extreme stress, not properly washing your eyes.”

Glenn: Gotta wash your eyes.

Charlie: Jamming your face with the various assholes.

Rob: Yeah, and, and I was like, “Well, how do you stop them?” And he's like, “Well reduce stress, get more sleep, clean your fucking eyes.” And so I've done all the other things, but–

Glenn: But you can’t reduce stress.

Rob: –it's hard to reduce stress. And with the, with the football I'm blaming it solely on–

Charlie: ‘Cause you have no control. And I bet that’s really hard for you.

Rob: I have some control issues.

Meg: *Laughter*

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: Yeah. This is challenging your ability. Right? You can’t control the narrative on the field.

Rob: All you do is you put the pieces together and then the rest–

Charlie: It’s out of your hands.

Glenn: Oh boy.

Rob: Yes.

Charlie: I was nervous watching with ya.

Glenn: Yeah.

Charlie: What was, what day was that? Where they–it was a draw. Tie. What do they say?

Rob: They say a draw. A tie is actually a match. Like, we’re going to a tie tonight.

Glenn: Hm?

Rob: Wrap your head around that.

Glenn: No.

Charlie: No.

Glenn: No, no.

Charlie: Yeah. I don’t get it.

Glenn: Yeah. No, um–

Charlie: I’ll pass that one. But um, okay. So it was a draw–

Rob: It was a draw.

Charlie: And it was right down to the wire. And the opposing team had some good shots on the goal there. At the wire, at the very end. And here’s an interesting thing about European uh, football. Uh, they just, the ref just sort of arbitrarily adds time at the end of the game. So he’ll be like, “Well, you know–”

Glenn: “What do you think, like–”

Charlie: “It’s a draw right now. Not a tie.”

Glenn: “4?”

Charlie: “And we’re just gonna–”

Glenn: “4? 5? What are you thinkin’?”

Charlie: “The boys, I think they got a bit in ‘em. Let’s, let’s give ‘em 6.”

Glenn: “Give ‘em 6! All right, we’ll give ‘em 6. Why? Why 6?

Charlie: “My wife says that–”

Glenn: “Yeah. You don’t want to, yeah.”

Charlie: “I don’t wanna go home.”


Charlie: And uh, yeah. So they just kinda add time. Which was highly stressful.

Glenn: And then, and then that time ends, and then it keeps going.

Rob: Yeah.

Glenn: For an American sports fan, that is maddening.

Rob: And there could even be–

Glenn: The lack of precision.

Rob: And then it could just keep going forever. As long as there is–as long as offensive play is continuing.

Glenn: Right.

Charlie: Well–

Rob: So it could be like, extra time has elapsed. And even added time to the extra time has elapsed. If you’re on the offense and you keep making shots and getting the ball back, they’ll just keep going.

Glenn: I feel like I’ve seen it where, the time elapses, the ball changes–like, it elapses, just elapses, but then the ball changes hands. And they’re like, “Let’s let them have one more shot.” What is that?

Charlie: Now, do they only do it if it’s a draw, right? Like, they don’t add time if, if–

Glenn: Oh yeah.

Rob: They do.

Glenn: Oh yeah, yeah.

Charlie: Get the fuck out. So–

Glenn: Every game.

Charlie: You could be up by, 1. And they’ll be like, let’s add 6 minutes and the other team scores 2. And–

Glenn: That’s right. Happens all the time.

Rob: It makes sense in theory. Which is that the clock never stops. It just runs, and runs, and runs.

Glenn: Yeah.

Rob: So if a guy–

Glenn: It’s called stoppage time.

Rob: Yeah. Gets hurt, and they're out there, and they're like tending to him, and it takes 4 minutes to do so, the clock never stops. It just keeps going. So that ref just goes, “Great. We’re, you're waiting for the game to pick up.”

Glenn: And it’s a minute and a half.

Rob: Theoretically he’s got this watch, that like, keeps adding time.

Glenn: Yeah. So, this guy, took him about a minute and a half to get up.

Charlie: I see.

Glenn: And, uh, so well, that’s a minute and a half of–but what is he doing?

Charlie: Why don’t they just stop the fucking clock?

Glenn: Yeah. That would make so much more sense.

Charlie: So everyone goes, “All right. Time stopping.”

Rob: Yeah. I’ve learned my lesson. Don’t, don’t ask too many questions. Just enjoy.

Charlie: Yeah, yeah.

*At the London live show*

Charlie: Yeah!

Glenn: Woohoohoo! So now, let’s, let’s raise a toast. Yeah? I’m–

Charlie: Let’s do it.

Glenn: Let’s do it. I’m sorry you guys don’t have–oh wait, wait a minute. Now, some of you–

Rob: Oh!

Glenn: Oh! Oh shit!

Rob: Wow.

Charlie: All right, all right. Wow we could see everybody!

Rob: Wow.

Charlie: Oh Christ. They’re not good looking. Let’s get the lights down.

Meg: Top 4 answers on the board. Name one of Rickety Cricket’s injuries.

*Buzzer sounds*

Glenn: *Laughter*

Rob: Wait, did you get that?

Meg: Glenn got that.

Rob: These buzzers are fuckin’ bullshit.

Glenn: *Laughter* Show me…

Meg: No, don’t say show me.

Frank: She’s a goddamn whore.

Meg: Did you guys know, that, that was how danny pronounces the word “whore”? Or was that just a happy accident?

Glenn: That was a happy accident. I mean, that wasn’t the first time he’s done it. But, but yeah, no. That was–

*Someone screaming*

Meg: Oh, well thank you. Some whore, just uh, said– We have Mr. Chase Utley.

*Crowd cheering*

Rob: Ladies and gentlemen, Kaitlin Olson.

*Crow cheering*

*Piano playing*

Kaitlin: What is this feeling?

Glenn: *Laughter* I feel so strange inside.

Kaitlin: It is strange, but appealing.

Glenn: I feel good. Ooo.

Kaitlin: Tiny boy.

Glenn: Ah.

Kaitlin: Little boy.

Glenn: Ooo.

Kaitlin: Baby boy. I need you. Tiny boy.

Glenn: Ah.

Kaitlin: Little boy.

Glenn: Ooo.

Kaitlin: I want to touch you, boy.

Glenn: If you only knew. What I’d do to you.

Kaitlin: Oh boy.

Glenn: If I was that boy, that’s inside of you.

*At the bar*

Meg: Last night,I, I didn't sleep that well. But for literally the first time in my life. I was up all night because, I was so happy I couldn't go to sleep.

Charlie: Oh.

Meg: It was weird because I've only ever had the anxious thing. And last night I was just like Like, I don't want this day to end.

Charlie: Just such a high of like, doing the show for other people.

Meg: Yeah. I just couldn’t sleep. I was just going over my head how great it was. It was like–

Glenn: Maybe that’s why I couldn’t sleep last night. Or for the last week,

Meg: Yeah.

Charlie: So, what’d you do about it?

Meg: I, I just laid there and like, appreciated it.

Glenn: Big smile on your face.

Meg: I have–well, I have had so many nights where I'm like, oh my god, I'm so anxious, like leading up to these shows, you know, there's a lot of like anxiety about wanting it to go well, and having been a Sunny fan for so long. The last thing I want to do in the world is like, disappoint other Sunnay fans. So uh, I was really nervous. And I had nights where I stayed up thinking about like, oh, did I pick all the right clips, and that. But last night, truly, I was just like, like, living it again, in my head, like over and it was, it was just like, so–I mean, you could just feel their love constantly, even when they're being quiet, you can feel the love of it. I've never experienced anything like that in my life. You guys, presumably like been in front of lots of Sunny fans before. And feeling that kind of rush. We talked about, like Comic Con before and like feeling that energy. I've never had that before. But they were so locked in. It’s crazy.

Charlie: Yeah. It’s a little–I find it a little intimidating when we’re just talking. Because, you know, when we have a funny clip to play. Or when we're doing like, you know, the family fight game.

Glenn: Or doing a bit.

Charlie: And that’s going over well. Or when I’m getting to sing songs. Which have like a beginning, middle and end. And everyone knows what they are. Like, that's very comfortable. When we're just chatting and like–

Rob: I see that in you. I see you very specifically, wanting to like keep things moving forward. I see you turn like, “Megan we have clips.”

Charlie: *Laughter*

Meg: I’m like, “All right.”

Rob: I’m like, “I get it.” Like I get, you’re, you’re–

Charlie: Well, I–

Rob: You want to put on a show.

Charlie: I just wanted to entertain.

Rob: Of course.

Charlie: I just wanna entertain. So I’m like–

Rob: I would suggest, I think it’s good. I think people like, want to hear us slow down a little bit.

Glenn: You stopped down more than I think we ever have maybe, in a live show last night, to talk about uh, ‘cause you picked Charlie clips.

Charlie: Mhm.

Rob: Yeah.

Glenn: To talk about Charlie. And, and in that moment, and you know, I–I–I–I just feel, I was like, I think people do wanna hear this.

*At the Dublin Live Show*

Rob: I’ve been asked to pick my favorite clips of Mr. Charlie Day.

*Crowd cheering*

Charlie: Yes! This is my first night getting to do it. So that, that’s exciting.

Rob: This is uh, this is such an honor for me. Um. I'm going to try not to get too emotional. But I will talk a little bit about Charlie. Um, and I think I've mentioned this on the podcast, but I'm gonna, I'm gonna tell the story again. I met Charlie Day on an airplane. We, we were both testing– a screen test is when you're auditioning for a role. And you're really close. It's usually down to like 3 or 4 maybe sometimes 2 other people. And we were living in New York City at the time. And they put actors on planes, they, they fly them out to LA. You then audition and you get to see who gets the part. For whatever reason, they sat us next to each other.

Glenn: You were going for the same part?

Rob:  We were going for the same part.

Glenn: And they sat you next to each other.

Charlie: Well, you could always spot the actor actually, like in the lobby. ‘Cause he’s the only other person waiting for the flight like this. *Mumbling* “No you do it, Carlos.”

*Crowd laughter*

Glenn: *Laughter*

Charlie: So I spied ya. I knew, I knew we were out going for the same–

Rob: Yeah. So immediately we know, okay. That’s the other–that’s the guy. And I’m sitting with him, and I’m thinkin’, I’m gonna ice this mother fucker out. I got this guy. I'm a tad competitive. And I thought well, all right, I got this job. So somewhere we get out of JFK. And uh, somewhere over–

Glenn: Somebody just “wooed” for JFK. Yeah. One of our most Irish presidents. Other than Biden.

Rob: You’re goddamn right!

Glenn: Yeah. Yeah, go ahead. I’m sorry.

Rob: Irish–JFK, Irish Catholic.

Glenn: Yeah, yeah.

Charlie: We shot him.

Rob: Well, I mean–

Charlie: Too many guns. Too many guns.

Rob: Too many guns.

Glenn: He’s not wrong.

Charlie: That’s just, those are just facts.

Glenn: Yeah, yeah.

Charlie: Anyway, go on about me.

Glenn: *Laughter*

Rob: So somewhere over Ohio. And for those of you who don't, uh, aren't familiar with the contiguous United States, it's like a state and a half over from New York. I realized I'm not going to get this job. This is the one of the funniest people I've ever met in my entire life and I am fucked. I am wasting the next four hours of a plane ride and the next three days of my life.

Glenn: Wait. Was it, so it was a comedy? That you were going out for.

Rob: Yeah. It was a comedy.

Glenn: *Laughter* Okay. Yeah, I know–yeah. You’re fucked.

Rob: Good luck to almost anybody in the world.

Glenn: Truly.

*Crowd cheering*

Charlie: Thank you. That’s very sweet. You wanna tell them what happened after they saw us both audition?

Rob: Well yes. Well, neither, neither one of us got the job because the whole thing fell apart.

Charlie: They canceled the show. They said, “Nah this is–”

Glenn: “This is not working.”

Rob: But what was birthed from that, was a friendship. And from that point forward, we would check in with each other and, um, and we would always talk about how, how everything that he was working on, and all the jobs he was getting, which were plentiful, um, still weren't creatively fulfilling, he didn't have any control or power over what was happening. I wasn't working at all. Um, but I, I realized that, wow, there are some really talented people out there. And if I could take, and I can't do what he can do. But I can do something else. And if I could take what I could do and, and work with him and work with people like him and hitch my wagon to his star, then I would be along for the ride. I'm dead serious. And that's what's been happening ever since.

*Crowd cheering*

Rob: I can, I can honestly say the same exact thing about Glenn. But this isn't about Glenn for once. For once.

*At the bar*

Glenn: The whole show is so big and entertaining. And we are doing a bunch of stuff. I think it’s, I think we should stop down every once in a while and just like get into it. You know what I mean. Like, because then it’s, then it’s–’cause otherwise it’s just, you know.

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: It’s like a–

Charlie: I’m not saying I’m opposed to it. I’m saying that’s the only time that I feel a little bit like, oh shit. What’s happening? You know.

Glenn: Yeah.

Meg: Minutes seem to take hours. In that, in that space.

Charlie: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Meg: Yeah, yeah.

Charlie: Drag on.

Glenn: Yeah.

Rob: I think, I–you could see how people get fucked up by that experience. Um, when you hear that same story over and over and over again. Of, people in our business getting to perform in front of large groups of people. Feeling the adulation or love coming from the crowd up into the stage. And I think what happens is people get addicted to it. And they think that all of that external validation is eventually gonna make them happy, which it wont’. And, but, but I think that the lesson that generally is learned, I think is still the wrong lesson, which is, you shouldn't seek that kind of validation, because it'll never bring you happiness. I think that there's some truth to that. But I also believe that there's a version of that experience last night that we actually did go through where you're not, you're not making it about yourself, but we're also sharing in the experience of the 9,000 people and it's all about the community of people that love this one thing, I think–

Glenn: But that’s really–that’s a different–that’s the difference, that’s the difference right there though. Right? It’s how you process that information. It’s how you, how you interpret that. How you, what you, what your takeaway is. Right? ‘Cause if your takeaway is like, fuck, I’m badass. Then, you know, that's probably not great. But if your takeaway is like, wow, I think we've made, I think we've done something.

Rob: Yeah.

Glenn: That’s like, made a lot of people happy.

Charlie: That’s what was so awesome about the crowd, well, all the crowds. But especially last night. Where, um, I was thinking like. Guys, it’s so great for each other what a good time they’re giving each other, right?

Meg: Yeah.

Charlie: We’re doing a percentage of it, which is like, singing, dancing, telling jokes. But they were chanting, breaking into song–

Glenn: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Charlie: Like, song. Which is, if I was a fan just going to show I’d be like, you wanna be with an exciting crowd.

Glenn: Mhm.

Meg: My favorite moment was we played a clip of Mac and Dennis move to the suburbs. And uh, was when– thank you so much.

Glenn: Ooo. A lemon in it. Lovely. Thank you.

Meg: Thank you.

Glenn: Appreciate it. Thank you.

Meg: And it was that moment where uh, Dennis says “Newsflash asshole.” And the crowd spontaneously all joined in and said it at the same time.

*At the Dublin Live Show*

Dennis: Don’t you tell me to calm down.

Mac: There’s that chirping again. How are you not hearing that?

Dennis: Newsflash asshole. I’ve been hearing it the entire goddamn time.

Crowd: Newsflash asshole. I’ve been hearing it the entire goddamn time.

Mac: Then why wouldn’t you say something?

Dennis: Because I hate you.

Crowd: Because I hate you.

*Crowd Cheering*

*At the Bar*

Meg: And it– I think that, the takeaway that I have from it, which I think is, a thing you get to keep, and, and you don't have to keep chasing, is that you feel like less alone. And I think that's like what everybody felt in the crowd.

Glenn: Yeah.

Meg: They, they've seen all those clips a million times. It's not that they're getting the jokes new. It's that they're sitting next to people and they're laughing with people and they feel like they have a family and that they're, and I know, you guys, you did a lot of meet and greets. I'm sure you've heard it over and over and over again. People saying, “I was going through a really dark time I had like, I felt really sad. And you guys lifted me up.” And that is just giving them the feeling that there's somebody with them, you know. And I think that was the thing they loved last night, was watching those clips with other Sunny fans. And, and you guys are watching, you guys watch it too. And knowing that you're part of that family with them, there's not a separation between them and you.

Glenn: I think that’s, I think that’s 100% Spot on. And I think that is what makes it so special because the way they feel about the show is how I feel about the show, you know what I mean? It's like, you do something, you feel like it's so– We're doing something that is so authentic to our experience, our life experience, our sense of humor, our you know, need to satirize society, whatever it is, you know, and you know, as we've spoken about many times, we've we, it was all done, essentially, in a very pure way just like okay, we can't really, you can't really know what an audience is gonna respond to. So all we can really do is make something that is going to, that you think is funny. That you think is funny. That I think is funny, and that we think is funny. So then to do that, and, and then see how many people actually feel the same way you do you know that it's like you said it, it makes you feel like you're part of something. And it is the biggest shame about like, comedy movie movies in particular not being in theaters. And–

Charlie: Oh yeah. To get in there with the crowd–

Meg: Yeah.

Charlie: –and like, all laughing with a group of people.

Glenn: And experience the–Yeah. You remember watching, I’m sure guys like went and saw like, Borat.

Charlie: Mhm.

Glenn: In the theater. That was like one of the–

Charlie: The premiere, and sat in the front row. And, and still laughed my fucking ass off. Just staring straight up.

Glenn: Yeah.

Charlie: At that giant naked guy. You know, like the two of them, like wrestling.

Glenn: I mean that, that’s one of the greatest theatrical experiences of my entire life. Was watching that movie. Watching South Park. The South Park movie, uh with an audience, in the theater. And uh, soon, watching Fool’s Paradise.

Charlie: Oh yeah buddy!

*At the Dublin Live Show*

Charlie: Well, we just fucking love what we're doing. And like I'm not gonna do anything if I'm not gonna have a blast doing it. Like being here tonight.

Rob: Yeah.

*Crowd cheering*

*At the Bar*

Glenn: I do think it is a separation between pride and ego right. You can be proud of your work without the takeaway, without like building up your own ego too much or making it too much about that. I think you can separate those things. In the same way that there is a difference between you know, arrogance and confidence. It's like, it's good to be confident, it's not good to be arrogant. Unless it’s funny.

Meg: That being said, I did enjoy people chanting my name. Which they did.


*At the Dublin Live Show*

Meg: Before we watch this clip actually, this is just like a little backstory of this one. ‘Cause I wrote this episode.

*Crowd cheering*

Crowd: Meg! Meg! Meg! Meg! Meg! Meg! Meg! Meg! Meg!

Meg: Aw. Thanks guys.

*At the Bar*

Glenn: Yeah. You can, you can, you can let the ego build up a little bit. Yeah, no, listen, I mean, it's an essential part of the psyche, right? Is the ego. It can’t– You don't want it to be nothing. Got to have a balance you know what I mean? Gotta have a balance. But yeah, I don't know. I mean, that, that experience of, of being with that many people that all kind of feel the same way about something is just a, yeah. It's a it's a beautiful, beautiful thing.

*Ad break*

*In the podcast studio*

Charlie: Hey Glenn.

Glenn: What?

Charlie: You know what we’re doing today? We’re getting salty, man.

Glenn: So much salt.

Charlie: Because we have a brand new sponsor.

Glenn: Yeah. LMNT. Spelled, LMNT. Is a great way to replenish your electrolytes. Their drink mixes come with everything you need and nothing, you don’t.

Charlie: So, we’re talkin’ no sugar?

Glenn: No. But plenty of the salt. The good salt. You know, so much salt you might be like, “No. That’s too much salt.” But it isn’t. You’d be wrong, you stupid idiot. It’s the right amount of salt.

Charlie: That was salty.

Glenn: I told you.

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: LMNT can help you eliminate headaches, muscle cramps, fatigue, sleeplessness, and other common symptoms of electrolyte deficiency. Which is namely a sodium deficiency.

Charlie: Those hangovers, you know. You get yourself a good quality Ireland hangover, look out man.

Glenn: Look out. Look out.

Charlie: Yeah. That’s why you gotta have your LMNT. You know, that’s what helped me man.

*Sunny music*

Charlie: I can’t believe it’s been over a month since we, since we’ve been in the UK and Ireland.

Glenn: It’s wild.

Meg: Yeah.

Charlie: It was amazing.

Glenn: Yeah.

Meg: Well it’s been over month for you guys. But I stayed for longer.

Charlie: Oh right. ‘Cause you were still there. You were there.

Glenn: She stayed out there a hot second longer than us.

Charlie: What else did you do over there?

Meg: Well I just booked like a bunch of different tours on Viator.

Charlie: Okay. I’m gonna stop you right there. Tell me more about this Viator. What is it?

Meg: It’s a place that I could book over 3–300,000 different travel experiences in over 190 countries. Um, they offer everything from simple tours, to extreme adventures. So like, I hit up Stonehenge. And then also the Harry Potter muggle’s tour.

Glenn: Oh. You did nerd stuff.

Meg: I figured that I would um, I would go on Viator and uh, they not only have really cool experiences. But also uh, they have like millions of real traveler reviews. And as a writer I really, I live for good reviews.

Glenn: Oh yeah, oh yeah.

Charlie: Okay, so maybe next time we go on a tour with the show, we also do a bunch of reviews?

Glenn: Now hold on a second here, ‘cause I’m just, I’m leaving this review here. Um–

Charlie: You’re doing a quick review?

Glenn: I’m gonna do a review here. Um, the muggle tour that Meg was referring to. “Muggle tour does not compare to Sunny tour.” Quote, Megan Ganz.

Charlie: Okay.

Meg: You’re being such a death eater right now. Okay, so you can download the Viator app now, and use the code Viator10 for 10% off your first booking. One app, over 300,00 experiences that you’ll remember. Do more, with Viator.

Charlie: That’s V-I-A-T-O-R. And use the code Viator10 for 10% off.

*Ad break over*

*At the bar*

Meg: Well, I love what you were bringing up after the Royal Albert Hall shows. The second one in particular, you mentioned to Charlie on the bus back that um, you could really see him soaking up a moment of playing the songs. And like, feeling like holy shit. “I'm in such a, I’m in a 100–150 year old venue.”

Glenn: I watched it happen.

Meg: Yeah. “And I am playing the songs that I wrote. And people are singing along they know all the words.” Wnd we got to see you just have–

Charlie: Yeah. Such a trip for me to get to do that. You know, to really kinda just play rockstar for 15, 20 minutes at the end of the show. And to play music, and to have people sing along.

Glenn: I think that’s why I enjoyed it so much. You know, because like, that first night as you know you got up there you did the songs. They sounded amazing, but you were doing your thing you were putting on a show.

Charlie: Yeah, yeah.

Glenn: As is what you're supposed to do.

Charlie: Trying to set the right notes.

Glenn: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Well there’s that too. The technical side, right? Because it's not like you play all the time and certainly not in front of an audience. But um, but then the second night yeah, it was like “Okay, wait a minute. Let me actually. I'm at Royal Albert Hall, like a historic venue. Like I can–” You, I could just, I literally watched you in that moment. I don’t know you like, transformed into like, you really owned it.

*At the London live show*

*Piano playing*

Charlie: *Singing* There is a spider. Spider, spider. Deep in my soul, soul. He’s lived here for years. He just can’t let go. He’s hanging around. He’s got a mean bite. Now, he’s ready to fight. And stand up for what he knows. I don’t want your trophies or your gold. I just want to tell you all go fuck yourselves. Woooo! Fuck you. I don’t need you here in my bar. Ooooo! Go fuck yourselves. Woohoooo. Hoooooooooooooo. Thank you everybody! You’ve been great England!

*At the bar*

Charlie: You know, I had a–in the middle of one of the songs, I don’t remember which one it was. And I looked up and I saw the monitor that's projecting–

Glenn: I saw you do that.

Charlie: –us out to the crowd. I was like, oh shit, right.

Glenn: Yeah. Uh-huh. Uh-huh

Charlie: So then, I don’t know, like as an actor. I was like, all right, where's the camera, let me try to like, make sure my head a little more towards the cameras with a little more entertaining for someone. I'm not just like looking down at the keys, although I need to a little bit. Um–

Meg: That was a great addition, by the way to this uh, because we, you know, we, we are putting on these live shows. We've never done, I've certainly never planned like a whole stage show before. And so we were learning things in the Philly shows. We didn't have uh, big screens with you guys close up project. And I think it changed the whole, it made it feel so much more intimate. They can see your faces, your reactions, the things you enjoying, the stuff and that in particular. You can see spitting on the crowd, which they love.

Charlie: I forgot to spit last night.

Meg: You gotta remember to spit on them.

Glenn: Did you?

Charlie: Yeah. I forgot to spit at the end of the song.

Glenn: *Laughter* Ending a show with telling the audience go fuck themselves is amazing. Although, that's not really what we're doing right? We're, we're really what we're doing is we're all collectively–

Charlie: Saying go fuck yourselves to–

Glenn: To anyone who doesn’t get it.

Charlie: People who don’t get Sunny.

Glenn: That’s really what it is. Yeah.

Charlie: And that’s the joy of it.

Glenn: That’s the–that’s the joy of it.

Charlie: ‘Cause all collectively know they’re wrong. You know? And have bad taste.

Meg: Yeah.

Glenn: Exactly.

*At the London live show*

Crowd: Charlie, Charlie, Charlie, Charlie, Charlie, Charlie.

*At the bar*

Charlie: We’re gonna do 1 more of these.

Meg: Yeah.

Charlie: And then we might do some throughout the summer, here and there. Back in the States.

Meg: Yeah.

Glenn: Yeah.

Rob: It’s really fun.

Glenn: Yeah.

Charlie: It’s really fun. We’re just gonna, we can, we could just because our schedules we can't do like a, a, a full tour. We just go for like a month or two months, unfortunately, sadly. So we just have, we're basically–

Meg: I don’t know that we would want to do that. Even if your schedules allowed it.

Glenn: I was gonna say that. Cut that. I was–

Rob: Well, honestly–

Glenn: That’s why we’re not doing it.

Rob: For me, it's just about my kids. I just miss my kids.

Charlie: Yeah.

Rob: I just miss my kids. And–

Meg: Oh. Missed your kids. Those are the reasons.

Rob: Meg, what’s your excuse?

Meg: Oh. I’m fucking tired. I don’t have kids. I just, we do this, and then by the end of it I’m like–

Glenn: We are your kids.

Meg: I’m exhausted. Yeah. Sort of.

Rob: Yeah.

Meg: Glenn calls me podcast mommy ‘cause uh, we got in the elevator at the hotel, after the show. And Charlie, Glenn and I were in the elevator. And we were like, “What room are you in?” And Glenn goes “I–”

Glenn: I haven’t got any idea.

Meg: No idea.

Glenn: I had, no idea what room I was.

Charlie: That’s the thing like. You know, like, when you do these tours. And like–

Rob: You’re handled.

Charlie: –the guy who's running it like you know, he, he, he handles like Bruno Mars and stuff. So like, you're whisked into a hotel at 3am. There, they hand you the room key to basically wipe you out. If you don't pay attention you’d be like, “Wait, what country am I in?”

Rob: That part is truly intoxicating. Where they’re, truly like– We have an incredible tour management team. And they’re used to doing rockstars. And rockstars tend to be younger, and a little bit less responsible.

Glenn: Yes.

Rob: Then, 46 year old men. So, producers of a television series. So, we–we’re not used to being handled the way that we’re being handled right now.

Glenn: No.

Rob: Which is, someone just–

Charlie: Nor do we like it. ‘Cause we’re like, “Hey man.” Like, uh–

Rob: I know.

Charlie: “Let me hold my own passport.”


Meg: That part you like.

Rob: They could just take your passports. And they’re like, “We got it covered.” And you’re like, “Oh.”

Glenn: “This is so uncomfortable.”

Rob: “Okay.” But if you can let it go, it is nice.

Glenn: It’s beautiful. It’s fun. I don’t, I don’t, I don’t think I ever want to get used to it. Because I think, because it could be one of those things where you, you know. You're in your house by yourself and you're like, “Tissue.”


Charlie: “Tissue anyone.”

Glenn: “Tissue!” You’re in your–


Glenn: –giant mansion. *Laughter*

Charlie: It’s fun, it’s fun. It’s like, you could play rock and roll stars for a week. You know what I mean? Like–

Rob: Sort of.

Charlie: Also, like–

Rob: Sort of, sort of.

Meg: My favorite part–

Rob: Except all the best parts we’re not doing.

Charlie: That’s true.

Glenn: Yeah, yeah.

Meg: What are all the best parts?

Glenn: Drugs and the bangin’.

Rob: I’m just saying like, rock star.

Meg: Drugs and the bangin’.

Glenn: Drugs and the bangin’.

Rob: That’s the dream. To have–

Charlie: We’re not doing the sex, we’re not doing drugs. We’re actually not even really doing the rock and roll.

Glenn: A little bit. A little tiny bit of it, you know?

*At the Dublin live show*

Charlie: This is the best fucking crowd we’ve had for any of these.

Rob: Oh my god.

Glenn: Absolutely.

Charlie: You guys are the best.

Rob: There are so many people here.

Charlie: That’s really good.

Glenn: Yeah. And they all came back. For the, after the intermission.

*At the bar*

Rob: I sent a video of this room to my friends of Philly. There’s 15 of–15 of them on the chain. And they all said, one of them said “Please tell uh, Meg, that we sa– I said, hello. Without it being too creepy.” Then everybody said, “Oh hi Meg.” “Jesus Christ, Meg.” Flame emoji.

Meg: What is this?

Rob: These are my guys in Philly. That’s a–

Meg: But from what?

Rob: High praise.

Meg: Based on what?

Rob: I just filmed a video like this. And ended with you, and you just went like that. And you’re a hit.

Meg: Your Philly friends uh, after the Philly shows, we got, we got–they were very nice to me. Very sweet. We talked about getting tattoos together. It was, I was pretty drunk. And we were talking about getting tattoos.

Glenn: Getting tattoos together. Classic.

Meg: Yeah. It was–

Glenn: Classic late night drunk conversation. “We should get tattoos, like right now.”

Meg: It was. It was like Sunday night, at 2 in the morning.

Rob: You were close?

Meg: I was real–I would’ve gone.

Charlie: When was this?

Glenn: You would’ve done it?

Charlie: After the Philly show?

Meg: Yeah, after the Philly show.

Glenn: What would the tattoo have been of? Did you know what you wanted to get?

Meg: I should get a Sunny related tattoo. I’ve always felt like I should get 2 tattoos related to comedy. One should be something related to Sunny. Maybe just “bad new”, tattooed somewhere on my body. And then uh–

Charlie: I’ll draw it. If you want to get it.

Meg: Ah.

Glenn: “Bad new” is a cool–

Meg: It’s a cool a thing. And then the other one is, I’d like to get an Onion related tattoo. ‘Cause I, I started on The Onion. That was like one of my first big jobs. And I’ve always wanted to get The Onion logo. Maybe something–

Glenn: What if I got “Semper Fi” on my shoulder? You know what I mean? So I could just be like, “Semper Fi.”

Charlie: Semper Fi bro. Um–

Glenn: Just cooler. It’s just cooler than–

Meg: We could do that on the pod, maybe sometime.

Glenn: Chinese–

Meg: You could write “Bad new” and I could get it tattooed on me.

Charlie: Sure.

Meg: That’d be rad. I don’t think I have to prove my Sunny fandom anymore.

Charlie: No. Do you have any tattoos?

Meg: I do. I have 2 tattoos. Yeah.

Glenn: You got tats. You’re all tatted up.

Meg: I got 2–

Charlie: I was reading a biography, an article about uh, your body is always trying to fight your tattoos. Sees it as an infection.

Meg: Really?

Glenn: What?

Charlie: And it’s uh, yeah. And they’re not sure why, the skin doesn’t just dump it out. Like, what, why it stays.

Meg: That’s weird.

Glenn: Yeah. Why it can’t get rid of it. I mean they do, they do–they can fade.

Rob: Yeah. They fade.

Charlie: And like all articles, I picked up very little details and facts. That I can actually regurgitate into an interesting conversation.

Glenn: *Laughter*

Charlie: A few headlines–enough to just get you guys fucking–

Glenn: Who has time to read an entire article.

Charlie: Well, I probably read the whole thing. I remember very little.

Meg: Your brain rejects that like the body rejects tattoos. Just like–

Charlie: Yeah, yeah.

Meg: –pushes out information slowly.

Charlie: It’s like, “What am I gonna do with this Charlie? Ain’t gonna help us.”

Meg: Rob’s getting his tattoos removed. How’s that going?

Rob: Yep. Good.

Charlie: But you’re keeping shamrock.

Rob: Keeping the Shamrock.

Charlie: Kept it for last night.

Meg: Oh yeah. I made Rob show his shamrock tattoo to the audience last night.

Rob: I was objectified I guess. I mean, I felt forced into it.

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: Mhm. Yeah. By the audience though. Well, and Meg.

Meg: I didn’t, I didn't force you. I just–

Glenn: No. You–

Meg: –there was an implication that something would go wrong–

Glenn: It could go wrong.

Charlie: It could go wrong.

Meg: –if you didn’t do it.

Rob: I’d get booed.

Glenn: Yes.

Rob: The implication is there.

Glenn: It’s real. It’s a real thing.

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: That’s what I think.


*At the Dublin live show*

Charlie: Show ‘em the shamrock?

*Crowd cheering*

Charlie: Yeah. Do it.

Glenn: There’s only one way to show it.

Charlie: You gotta do it. Down go the pants.

Glenn: *Laughter*

Charlie: All right. He’s gotta take his pants off for it.

Glenn: It’s the only way.

Charlie: You could do it!

Meg: You could show it to that camera.

Glenn: You guys, his pants are too tight.

Meg: There we go.

Charlie: There’s the shamrock!

*Crowd cheering*

*At the bar*

Glenn: Were you actually like, uh, slightly mortified? Well, you’re–was it–what–it was like a–I was like, “Are his pants tight?”

Charlie: Did you not like your underwear you were wearing?

Rob: No, no. I was just afraid that my dick was gonna come out.

Glenn: Yeah. ‘Cause you–yeah. That’s–

Rob: I just had to make sure–honestly, I got so nervous for a split second. I looked at the wrong leg. I forgot which leg it was on. So then I would, I was like “Wait, where is it?” And then I just was like, “I just don’t why my dick to–”

Glenn: It’s hard to know these days when it’s appropriate to take your dick out.

Meg: *Laughter*

Glenn: You know what I mean? We never know anymore. We never know. We’re like, “When can I–” Every room I walk into I’m like, “Can I take my dick out in this room?” And then I’m like, “Fuck no.”

Rob: I think that, I would’ve gotten a pass there. Because that’s not a power move. It’s the opposite.

Glenn: What’s that?

Rob: I would’ve been, I would’ve been the victim.

Charlie: Yeah.

Rob: If my dick were to fall out, on stage while the audience was like, “Take it out!”

Glenn: Yeah.

Rob: And I was like, “I don’t know.” I’m the victim.

Glenn: Yeah. You’re the victim in that situation.

Meg: Yeah. That’s like, your fame moment. Where you were like, “I guess.”


Meg: “Is this what you want?”

Charlie: “Did you get your shot.”

Glenn: Oh no.

Charlie: Meg did a secret santa. Where she said, “Hey. Pick 3 clips.” And you know, you gave me Glenn. And uh, Rob got me. And then Glenn got Rob. And then uh, on the next show we opened Danny. Here’s where I’m–

Glenn: Oh, I didn’t know that.

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: I was wondering about that.

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: Oh, nice.

Charlie: If uh, we’ll start with you Rob. Rob, if you had to pick your own clips, your own 3 clips, which scenes would you have picked?

Rob: Oh. Wow. It's a little harder because you know, when people ask us about Chardee McDennis, and how much fun it was to make, because it seems like it was so fun because the people love the episode we're actually miserable.

Glenn: Yeah. It was.

Rob: Because your experience of performing something isn't always necessarily how, the way that it winds up and the way that it's perceived by other people is really got little to do with like the performance that you gave.

Glenn: The Revenant was amazing movie. You think Leonardo DiCaprio–

Rob: Exactly.

Glenn: –had a good time filming it? Fuck no, he didn’t.

Rob: Exactly.

Glenn: We’re screaming the entire episode.

Rob: Right. So to like, pick out the whole–

Glenn: We’re at a 10 the whole time. Like it’s exhausting. Anyway, go ahead.

Rob: Yeah. To think about, like what I would pick out for myself, it would be things that I had the most fun making it you know what I mean?

Glenn: Right. Which is not really the, the assignment.

Meg: That’s fine. You can do that. I’ll allow it.

Glenn: She’ll allow it. Meg is going to allow it.

Rob: I’d have to–

Meg: –filming. How ‘bout the dance?

Rob: Yeah, I mean something like that–

Charlie: The fat dance? Or the fit dance?

Glenn: The fat dance or the fit dance?

Rob: I would say the, the, the both.

Charlie: The fat dance is funny too.

Rob: But both, both because you know what, yes. I think those are top, those are tied for one. Because, because they represented putting in months and months and months of work together and then it winds up paying off for a brief second. It's me, that's what's fun about it is that even the dance itself which was very long was only four minutes, and it took me six months to learn how to do that and to get my body into shape. And, and the fat, the fat is just, just dancing across the stage for four seconds.

Charlie: For you–

Meg: I can see him when he says it. It runs through my mind.

Charlie: For you I would pick–

Glenn: The look in his face. And going sideways.

Charlie: But also, also the, the, the Michael Jackson kinda moment at the end. When you throw your shirt back.

Glenn: Oh that. I was thinking of Frank’s Little Beauties.

Charlie: Frank’s Little Beauties is the best.

Glenn: That’s the one. That little side shuffle.

Charlie: I would’ve picked one of the ones that Glenn picked for you. Which was the uh, “I’ve had an orgasm.”

Meg: “I’ve had an orgasm with your mom.”

Charlie: Or, “I’ll put my thumb through your eye.”

Glenn: Yeah, yeah.

*At the London live show*

Glenn: I’ve got Mr. Rob McElhenney. Now, you guys do know how to pronounce his last name right? No, no, that's gonna be stuck in our heads for the rest of our lives.

Rob: Meg, do you want to play that video?

Glenn: No.

Charlie: No, no.

Glenn: Do not. Do not play that video.

Charlie: Do not.

Glenn: Oh, for the love of god.

Rob: It’s funny. ‘Cause I just met Ryan a couple years ago and spent about 150,000 pounds making a video for my birthday. And what did you guys do?

Glenn: Uh, we made you millions and millions of dollars.

Rob: Yeah, sorry.

Charlie: I–We made you a, we gave you, we made you famous.

Glenn: We made you full stop. We made you.

Charlie: Ryan Reynolds is a total shmitty.

Glenn: Ryan Reynolds is shmittying us.

Charlie: He’s Shmittying us.

Glenn: Yeah he is. Um, but not only did we make you Rob. But you made us.

Charlie: It’s true. It's true.

Glenn: And if it were not for you, this show would not exist.

Charlie: It’s true.

Glenn: And it wouldn't be even a fraction as funny as, as, as it is without you my friend. You're a phenomenal writer. You're a phenomenal actor. You're a phenomenal friend. And I want to watch some clips of you doing some funny shit.

Crowd: Yeah!

Charlie: Yeah! Glenn, I'm very very curious what you picked.

Glenn: Okay. Well–

Charlie: There would be so many if I was–

Glenn: I know that, so–I know that like, I know that people enjoy watching my character get angry. But I enjoy ,I enjoy your character getting angry.

Charlie: I do too.

Glenn: Because it doesn't, like it, when it comes on. It's fast and it is beyond anything I can I–

Charlie:  It's fast and it's furious.

Glenn: So, so I wanted to see some of my favorite moments of you getting furious.

Rob: Okay.

Meg: Let’s roll the clip.

Charlie: Roll the tape.

Mac: Hey! I’m Mac. Welcome to Paddy’s Pub. I would like to recommend to first timers, our signature blended drink, Caribbean paradise. People say it's better than an orgasm.

Dennis: Not that he’s ever had one.

Mac: I’ve had orgasms! I’ve had tons of orgasms! I’ve had one with your mom, dude! I will strangle you! I’ll stick my goddamn thumb through your eye!

Dennis: Woah, woah, woah, woah. Dude, relax. Relax.

Frank: One of the cornerstones of Paddy’s Pub is thick limes!

Charlie: Yeah! Don’t tell me what to do!

Mac: I’m gonna put my thumb through your eye you little bitch!

Glenn: No, no, no. Shhh.

Mac: Look, the whole men's and women's bathroom thing is antiquated.

Dee: Maybe you're antiquated.

Mac: Maybe I’ll choke you out!

Dee: Get off of me! Get him off of me!

Dennis: Settle down.

Glenn: Now, hold on.

*Crowd cheering*

Charlie: Thumb through the eye.

Glenn: I, the, the–strangling your wife.

*Crowd Laughter*

Glenn: That’s funny.

*At the bar*

Glenn: The bursts of anger, are so, so funny to me.

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: Like any time you go into these bursts of anger and then immediately, like, calm down. That shit’s always really funny. But then there was some of like uh, the clips that you showed up of Charlie. And honestly, I mean, I was loving what you were doing. But I was also noticing in those scenes, I couldn't help but notice, I'm like, “Oh fuck. Those are so great for Rob too.” Like, I felt like I didn't necessarily pick the best ones. But uh, it’s a testament to like, I think, there are a lot.

Rob: But was I was choosing, I was choosing as I explained, like I was choosing ones very carefully for specific reasons. That it wasn't just what made me laugh?

Glenn: Ones you were good in. I’m joking

Rob: No, no, it was, it was ones where, where I wanted to point out to the audience, what makes Charlie so special. As opposed to just the fun, the funniest scene.

*At the London live show*

Rob: I had a really tough job. My job was to pick clips for Charlie, again, good fucking luck.

Glenn: How do you do that?

Rob: How do you do that?  So I had to whittle it down. And my very first pick is from an episode called Underage Drinking a National Concern. Now, maybe I actually, I might set this up. So this was early in the show. And I remember um, I had a very strong take on this episode. And I, especially early on, I was able to like, I just wrote this very quickly. I had an idea, a pitch for the episode. I wrote it very, very quickly. And the first draft I got to the guys, and they were like, “Oh. Okay, this looks good. We could probably shoot this.” Then of course, we did our pass through it, and it got even better. But then what you're about to see um, in this scene and in this little monologue, Charlie um, adlibs, something that was not in the script. And it became an iconic line in the history of the show. Let's watch that.

Dennis: What the hell's going on?

Charlie: That’s Tammy. Trey’s ex girlfriend. This is classic Tammy. Trey broke up with Tammy because Mareen Kanalen said that she saw Tammy flirting with Will Timmy at a party. But she was only doing it to make Trey jealous. Because, you know, she thought that Trey secretly liked Erin Hennebry. But Trey didn’t like Erin Hennebry. It was all a bunch of bull.

Dee: What is happening?

Charlie: That’s Tammy. Trey’s ex girlfriend. This is classic Tammy. Trey broke up with Tammy–

Mac: Okay. You know what Charlie? You gotta stop. Honestly.

Rob: Okay. So the reason I led with this, was not because it's the funniest thing that Charlie's ever done. Because again, that's, it’s–

Glenn: It's impossible.

Rob: It's impossible. It's because he took something and elevated it exponentially further than any of us could kind of imagine by just saying the words. “Classic, Tammy.” “That's classic Tammy.”

Glenn: I actually don’t–that wasn’t in the script?

Rob: No.

Glenn: Calling her– “That’s classic Tammy.” That–

Rob: No. And, and another reason why I chose that is because I know you guys would probably not even remember it. I don't even know if Charlie remembers it.

Charlie: I don't remember shit.

Rob: Now.

*Ad Break*

*In the podcast studio*

Meg: Our show today is brought to you by Rocket Money.

Charlie: Get out of here. Rocket Money?

Meg: Yeah. Rocket Money is a personal finance app that finds and cancels your unwanted subscriptions. Monitors your spending and helps you lower your bills. All in one place.

Charlie: That’s right. We save this one for when Glenn is with us, because uh, you’re such–you’re such an app thusiast. You know what I mean?

Glenn: I love ‘em. I love ‘em.

Charlie: Don’t you love the applications?

Glenn: The more the better. I, every time I have to download a new app–

Charlie: It’s exciting.

Glenn: I love it.

Meg: But I bet you do feel good about them when they save you money on unwanted subscriptions, right?

Glenn: Okay, all sarcasm aside. I do love saving money.

Charlie: I love–money is great.

Glenn: I like money.

Meg: Yeah. Especially when the average american thinks they spend 80 dollars a month on subscriptions, but in reality, they actually spend closer to 200 dollars.

Charlie: And it’s a lot of money to be off, you know, perception wise. To think you’re only spending like, 60 to 70. To be spending 200.

Glenn: Oof.

Charlie: That’s a big gap.

Glenn: That’s a big hit.

Meg: Yeah. But that’s a job for uh, robot to be tracking. Is where your money’s going. Not, not for people. It’s like, we just let Rocket Money do that for us.

Glenn: Just stop throwing money away, right? That’s the main takeaway here. You know? Cancel unwanted subscriptions and manage your expenses the easy way. By going to The “slash” is important.

Charlie: That’s

Meg: That’s

Charlie: I wanna rocket some money to my pocket.

Glenn: Yeah. You want a pocket rocket full of money.

*Sunny Music*

Glenn: I had an idea, Charlie. For an RCG business venture.

Charlie: Oh my god. Another one? With the abundance of time that we have?

Glenn: Yeah.

Charlie: Okay.

Glenn: Yeah.

Charlie: What you got?

Glenn: Okay, so check this out. Um, we have all these Sunny sets, you know, we’ve built over the years. And what do we do with them, in the off season?

Charlie: We put them in storage.

Glenn: Yeah. We keep them in storage. Exactly. We keep ‘em locked away where no one can enjoy them. And you know, can’t make money of them. But what if, what if, okay. What if we let people pay to come and take pictures on our sets.

Charlie: Okay. But slow down. You gotta think about the overhead, right? We’d have to hire a staff. We gotta get a bunch of PA’s. Kinda like, getting people in and out of these sets.

Glenn: But see, that’s the easy part.

Charlie: Okay.

Glenn: We just use Ziprecruiter.

Charlie: Oh right. ‘Cause whether you’re starting a new business or you’re growing one. Uh, if you want it to be successful you need the most talented people on your team, that’s where Ziprecruiter comes in. Okay. And right now you can try it for free. At

Glenn: Exactly. Ziprecruiter’s powerful matching technology finds highly qualifies candidates for a wide range of roles.

Charlie: And tell me ‘bout these candidates.

Glenn: Well, if we happen to see some candidates that we really like we can personally invite them to apply.

Charlie: Right. Let ziprecruiter fill all your roles. Right? 4 out of 5 employers uh, who post on ziprecruiter they get a quality candidate, within the first day.

Glenn: See for yourself, go to this exclusive web address to try ziprecruiter for free.

Charlie: Again. That’s Ziprecuiter, the smartest way to hire.

Meg: I wanna hear your guys top 1. Let’s just do 1. What’s your top moment for yourself on the show? The one you had the most fun filming, or just the one that you’re like, “Well I’m pretty fuckin’ proud of that moment.”

Glenn: Hmm.

Charlie: Like some, some of my favorite ones, weirdly are, are like out of character for what I normally am, but like, I like “I’ve grown quite query” speech.

Rob: That speech is pretty great.

Charlie: Yeah.

Meg: Is that from Flowers For Charlie?

Charlie: Yeah. That and probably Pepe Silvia. And honestly, the, the Ryan Gosling– “Ryan Gosling playing you?”

Meg: “Ridiculous.”

Glenn: “Ridiculous.”

Charlie: I don’t know why.

Glenn: “Ridiculous.”

Charlie: Those are the ones I had the most fun–

Glenn: You know what’s funny? I–you, actually, much like, it’s usually me that does this. But, as I recall like, when we went to shoot that, we were doing it and you were like, “This is not. This is too big.”

Charlie: I was? Oh that’s funny.

Glenn: Yeah. And, I was the one–

Meg: With all the wires out of your…uh.

Glenn: I was the one who was like, “No, no, no. Go further.”

Charlie: Oh great.

Glenn: “Go further with it. And the more you go–” And you were like, “All right. I’ll do one that’s like, insane.” And then you did it. And it was so funny. And you felt it too.

Charlie: Oh yeah.

Glenn: We were like, “All right. This is ridiculous. And it makes no fucking sense.”

Charlie: Right. Yeah, yeah.

Glenn: It’s just funny. It’s just funny. Yeah. It was one of the rare instances in which like, you had–you were kinda backing away from something–

Charlie: Yeah, yeah.

Glenn: And I was like, “No, no, no. Go, go, go.”

Charlie: ‘Cause there’s really no reason to be like, talking like that.

Glenn: No.

Charlie: It’s just funny.

Glenn: When you have the wires sticking out of your mouth going, “I can’t talk like this.”

Meg: Is that when you had the thing too? The–

Charlie: Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Meg: It was like a gas mask that you put on as well.

Charlie: *Laughter*

Meg: So funny.

Glenn: *Mumbling*

Charlie: Glenn, what about you? For you?

Glenn: I honestly have no—I, I, I, I’m not–this is–

Charlie: There were–that was tough for me to pick. ‘Cause there’s so many good moments.

*At the London live show*

Charlie: But the one and only Mr. Glenn Howerton. I got to pick your clips buddy. And I'm pretty excited about this. I got a little piece of paper here to, to set them up.

Glenn: Charlie’s my biggest fan.

Charlie: So uh, my first clip is not gonna be actually um, so much you're acting as uh, you're breaking. Now you don't always break in a scene. But this is uh, one of Dennis's finest scenes and one Glenn's finest moments. This was our last day of filming this season. This is Dennis needing his tools.

Charlie: Why do you keep all that shit in your car.

Dennis: It’s fetish. It’s fetish shit! I like to bind. I like to be bound.

*The gang laughing*

Dennis: Duck tape. Zip ties. Tools! I have to have my tools.

Charlie: Why do you keep all that shit in your car?

Dennis: Fetish shit, you know? I like to bind–

*The gang laughing*

Dennis: Fetish stuff! I like to bind. I like to be bound–

*The gang laughing*

Mac: What’s all that stuff you’re grabbing dude?

*Crowd laughter*

*The gang laughing*

*At the bar*

Meg: One of my favorite’s though is you saying, “Idiots” and “Savages”.

Glenn: Oh!

Charlie: Yes!

Meg: The pitch that your voice goes into um–

Glenn: Yeah.

Meg: Is so funny. It gets like so high pitch. “Idiots!”

Dennis: That’s not fun! What they were doing wasn’t fun!

Frank: No.

Dennis: They kept zapping us! And zapping us! Idiots! Savages! Idiots! Idiots!

Mac: Jesus Christ, dude.

Charlie: Damn man.

Mac: Calm down.

Glenn: Now that's the first time we went, we went, we were like, “What happens if we take that thing, that we're, that gear that we're finding and like really went–”

Charlie: We were doing what you did for me with braces thing. Which is like, go even further.

Glenn: Just, just, the angrier you get.

Charlie: Yeah.

Glenn: The more you incense. The more insane you feel about this, the better.

Charlie: Yeah, well–

Rob: I would’ve picked “tools.” I would’ve picked “tools.”

Charlie: Yeah, yeah. I could’ve picked “tools.”

Rob: Give you your tools.

Charlie: Yeah. Um–

Glenn: Yeah, see, it is funny because there, there’s certain things that like, other people think are like you know, super super funny. Like “the implication” scene. Which I think is–

Rob: I picked that too.

Glenn: Well I think–so–

Meg: Him reading the speech.

Charlie: The two of you together in that scene, you guys are like a perverse Laurel and Hardy.

Glenn: So, it’s not that I dislike–I like my performance in that scene but, to me the thing that makes that scene so funny, is what you guys wrote. And your reaction. That’s just what, for me. That’s just for me. Now I’m not saying I don’t, I do like my performance there. And I think my performance is good. But I don’t think it’s my best work. I think it’s good. But I think the best thing about that scene is the actual speech itself. And, honestly, for me, your reaction to it.

Charlie: But then it’s so funny that you’re getting so irritated with him that he said–

Glenn: Of course. Of course.

Charlie: “You’re not understanding.” And the more irritated you become with him not understanding it, the funnier it–

Glenn: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I think it’s, you know–

Meg: “You’re misunderstanding me.” Another one of my favorites, it’s a rant but it’s a different gear also because it’s quieter. Is, “I will put you in a box.”

Glenn: Oh yeah.

Meg: That to Dee, “A tiny box.” Because it’s a weird–

Charlie: My phone algorithm sent that to me the other day. Being like, “You want to watch–”

Glenn: –talking about

Charlie: I was like, “Yes I do.” And I watched it again. It was fuckin’ great.

Glenn: Any time–honestly, anytime I can make Kaitlin break,

Dennis: I will shove you into a box! A glass box. And put you on display. *Laughing*

Dee: *Laughing*

Dennis: Think of the smell, you bitch! Rotting fish. Furniture. Fish…*Laughing*

Dee: *Laughing*

Dennis: Sorry, wait–

Glenn: “A glass box.” It’s just like–I don’t know, you know? Maybe ‘cause, you know, Kaitlin’s like the, she’s the tough one to break. Like we break all the time. Kaitlin doesn’t break that often. Danny doesn’t break that often. But Kaitlin–

Charlie: Danny started breaking more.

Glenn: He started breaking more.

Charlie: The last couple years–

Glenn: Yes he has.

Charlie: –he’s breaking a lot more.

Glenn: Yep, yep. I think yeah–I don’t know.

Meg: By breaking we mean, laughing not breaking. He’s perfectly fine.

Glenn: Sorry, yes.

Meg: Nothing’s happening to Danny.

Glenn: Industry term.

Charlie: He’s tough to break.

Glenn: Breaking means uh, laughing, exactly. But uh, yeah. I think most people know, but–

Meg: You guys, we’ve done it.

Charlie: Yeah. We gotta wrap up.

Glenn: Did we do it? Oh we did it.

Charlie: We’ve gotta head over to another country.

Rob: We’re going another country.

Charlie: We’ve got to get to Wales.

Meg: Yeah. Going to Wales today.

Glenn: Going to Wales.

Meg: And then back.

Charlie: And then back to Dublin.

Meg: There goes–

Glenn: Yeah. There goes styes.

Charlie: Here come the styes.

Glenn: Here come the styes.

Charlie: And here come the styes and they’ve added 6 minutes to the clock.


Charlie: And 6 more styes.

*At the Dublin live show*


Charlie: *Singing* Oh they say, the worlds your oyster. Man, but oysters ain’t for me. You’re the belle of the ball. But you ain’t my cup of tea. They always vote you best in show, but this doggy disagrees. ‘Cause I like life at Paddy’s Pub. There’s a place for me, the place I go. Where the beer is cheap, and the lights are low. It’s Paddy’s Pub. I like Paddy’s Pub. Let the record show, the greatest bar to go, is that bar called Paddy’s Pub.


Charlie: *Singing* I like life in Paddy’s Pub…

*Crowd cheering*

*Sunny music*
