Adam is opening the show with an excited tone in his voice after a week off from the main show, BB has his own requested #TopDrop and has a nice back and forth with A-Rose about it.
Adam is teasing the Hooray For BaldyWood later in the show and what induced a yawn from Mike August, wha, wha, what!?

Adam is now quoting the Hitler and Nazi barbs used against him, Adam is taking it with a flattering grain of salt, much like what he told Andy when he guested on the show last August and previously in 2010 too.
Adam is now quoting his “everyone should be more like the Jews” ideology and how it’s not necessarily in line with Hitler’s new world order.
Adam is now explaining why he’s flattered, how you can’t call him short when he’s 6’2” and being called a Nazi or a hack doesn’t feel like anything because they hold no truth, wow this is some super enlightened way of thinking, my mind is blown!
Adam is now having Gary fetch the rest of the article, where the woman who wrote it seems to emphasize nobody in the crowd was disagreeing, Adam and BB are embracing the “roast” element while mocking the “reporters” insane angle.
Alison is now reading the article written by the sad moronic woman, BB has a great reply towards Adam.
Adam is now giving his reply to the potential industry while his kids hold their ears in the next room, Adam is telling the industry to go fuck themselves as he rides away on his pirate ship.

Adam is sharing the low man on the totem pole move they pulled on Matt regarding him returning the rental car while they planned to try to delay the flight somehow(bad plan!).
The flight was delayed and they couldn’t reach Matt due to the dying cell phone he was using all day to navigate them, I’ve been in his shoes a few times, this is glorious!
Adam is sharing how he tried to get into one of the lounges he has access to due to his status and ticket, he’s mocking the woman who didn’t know where the lounge was and seemed to think it was before security.
Adam is now describing the curried fish entrée that was perfect after a long hot Connecticut day, August ate half the pot while telling Adam how horrible it was with every bite.
This is reminiscent of Adam’s early 2000 “Can I get a fucking cheeseburger!?” rant at Kimmel’s annual holiday fish fry.
Adam is now at the point of Matt finally arriving right as they heard one of the strangest announcements they’ve ever heard.
