Finally the 3rd episode recorded on Cinco de Mayo is released and all banked content has been shared, Adam is thanking the fans for buying his book and BB has a Brian Whitman impression of Tom Leykis #TopDrop.
Adam Ray is telling them about his recent time in Butte Montana and how many Carolla fans he encountered along with lamentations about driving drunk and nightly hang outs at the local Arbys.
Adam wants to know who the people are who travel and eat at chain restaurants available in their hometown, he’s riffing about Claim Jumper.
Adam says you need to go to the local restaurants or at least local fast food when you’re in a place that has food you can’t get elsewhere, Adam has a great joke about the Popeye’s chicken in Monaco.
Adam is asking if the rest of the gang do his bizarre self-doubt about judging things, like when he drives and passes the Claim Jumper billboards and then gets mad at himself for judging the chain and the people who eat their, then questions his self-doubt and assures himself that his initial critique was probably right.
Alison is sharing her own experiences with this when it comes to people’s faces, she’s making a very valid point and Adam has a counter about people eventually looking like what they think about, hilarious black one liner.
Adam is now plugging Adam Ray’s podcast and asking him about his acting work after starring in “The Heat” and he’s been auditioning trying to get more work but he’s still in the struggle.
Adam is explaining how he just made a movie and auditioned nobody, he trusted in the skillsets of his cast like Diane Farr who he thinks is very good at her profession and never doubted her once.
They’re now joking about Brad eventually getting his “Willow” role that launches him to stardom, funny R2-D2 comedy and now Adam is asking about them using the same actors for the Star Wars movie, BB is being annoying in reply to Adam.
Adam is now asking if it has to be Peter Mayhew in the Chewbacca costume, if viewers will be able to spot the difference, they’re trying to discuss if Brad Williams can replace Kenny Baker who plays R2-D2 in the movies.
Adam is right, that’s why they cast Peter Mayhew in the new trilogy despite his knee problems and relative retirement, the biggest case in point would be the movie predator, Kevin Peter Hall who also played Harry in “Harry and The Henderson’s” had a frame and physical grace that has yet to be even remotely matched on screen in follow up Predator films
I think BB is arguing just to argue, you know “one of those” because this is kind of anti-character actor/makeup performance logic he’s spewing, I think he’s riding the wave of his “comedic” cockiness about knowing the name Peter Mayhew and he’s not going to budge with Ace.
Adam is calmly summing up his point, wondering if hardcore fans would know the difference, BB is now coming around and confirming Adam’s point, WTF?
Adam is now steering the show back to him and joking about his modesty and humility, Adam Ray wants to know the difference between Chewbacca’s orgasm noises vs. regular noise.
Adam is now telling the gang about a time he was spotted despite not looking like his normal self, this is a classic MTV LL era anecdote about getting recognized in Miami at night with sunglasses (?)
Human Beings more animal than man is Adam’s consensus about how we unknowingly spot things and can gleam information.

Adam is now sharing the story of the time he spotted Sharon Stone driving around with her cars convertible top down.

Adam is doing a live read.
