Adam has some great points about profiling a good contractor and Drew has a point about craftsmanship, Adam says most of the problems on his show are the result of the homeowners taking the lowest bid.


Adam has a solid analogy comparing $4 surf and turf buffet to the lowest bid offered by a contractor, he saying but it seems too good to be true it always is.

Drew says he would just move into a condo if not for them, Adam is now doing a live read.


They’re back to the topic of Drew’s house and the idea of retiring somewhere simplistic Adam is praising the idea and the concept of not having to worry about a roof when there are five units above you.

Adam is sharing his fantasy for a super modern house, Dr. Drew is chiming in saying that Adam was bringing this up back on loveline so long ago that drew didn’t even understand what Adam was talking about.

Adam is explaining that while these so far only rehabbed old homes his dream was always to build something “Thoroughly Modern” and he’s now describing his dream home.


Adam says no wood in the house, he’s now suggesting they just go gay instead of remodeling Drew’s home, Adam says he’s a daiquiri away from cool and Drew is loving it.

Adam is suggesting the type of lawn he would have, Drew is adding to it with his mister addition and now he’s launching into a live read.

Adam is now asking Dr. Drew about the monthly music clubs of yore, such as Columbia House and he’s explaining to Adam how it all worked.


Drew praises the service and Adam says it’s unclear if the people in his family had checking accounts, he’s citing that as why he never had anything like Drew’s experience and now Drew is offering up some theories on why Adam’s parents were so dysfunctional.

Adam is on a killer riff, Drew is getting Chris on mic to explain it’s called a “Tilda” and they’re wondering why its missing from the sign for “Canon drive”.

They’re now no a full “Beverly Hillbillies” riff and he’s joking about the premise, Dr. Drew is now on mic and confirming it and Adam is mocking the premise of a banker bending over backwards for a rich guy.

They’re further remarking on the changing language over time and have now transitioned back to the premise of the sitcom.


Adam wants to know where that ass kissing has gone, he’s asking Drew about their credit history and mortgage payment records.

Gary has found a street sign with the umlaut/Tilda for Canon drive, vindicating the Aceman.

Adam is making a point that in spite of their collective 50 years of making lots of money for banks with 0 downside and the extreme difficulties they would face along with 30% down required despite their history of good credit.


Adam is now bringing up the point about people who think its only fair for him to pay the same amount others pay, Adam has a great report guard analogy and Drew has an equally great NFL football one, followed up with a great “Chumbawamba” reference.

Adam and Drew agree, let the bangers agree and decide, not 0 regulation, just less.

Dave’s calls seems bogus, this is a bogus call.
