They’re now discussing Larry’s performance as “Babydoll” playing Adam/Bruce’s agent in the film “Road Hard” and Adam is giving a wise piece of advice about not hassling people, he’s bragging about his own willingness to call into any podcast or show, very ironic timing.
Adam is complimenting the guys in his movie for not bringing publicists and hassles into the schedule, he’s calling DAG a bit of a pain of an ass.

Hypothetical Road Trip
A totally judgment free environment in here – Adam, I think you can hear Gary laughing through the soundproof glass.
1st Road Trip Bono or Sonny Bono?
Larry chose Sonny Bono, he’s got a great series of explanations as to why.
Adam is killing it with comb over comedy and joking about the nonstop verbal barrage of local Palm Springs politics, comedy gold!

Larry is sharing his take on people changing the name of their profession, Adam agrees with him and mentions server/waiter and the step down that actually is.

Larry is sharing an anecdote of a man dressed as Lincoln and two bums.
Adam is telling Larry why he’s wrong and why he prefer to driver around with people dressed as the statue of liberty to get out of tickets, solid reasoning.
Adam says cops will be hit by a drunk driver due to “bad Juju” from giving a ticket to the statue of liberty.
They’re now wrapping up the bit and Larry gets them to reveal what the “Victory” sound is, BB plays the same buzzer, they have actually let him win before.

They’re back from break.
