Adam is opening the show with Ray in studio, Ray is bringing up the Buddhist girl who was in love with him in high school, and Ray calls her by the name of Woody Allen’s wife instead of her actual name “Jung Hi Lee”.

Adam is now telling the gang about her interest in him and the time he was her date for grad night, he’s going super in depth and revealing far more details than any previous telling despite not remembering her name up top.

He’s describing going to the LA convention center with ten thousand Buddhists, Ray is jumping in and it’s gold.

Adam is now launching into the Gavin Newsom episode that’s being intentionally misinterpreted by the media, in particular the Huffington post.

The quote was from when Adam was almost “in character” as a childlike innocent or an alien from another planet asking a logical series of questions based on the racial issues brought up by Gavin, morons.

Adam is going off; this is an extended perfect rant against the idiots trying  to fire up the latest round of controversy for Adam’s comments on the show.

Adam is now going off on personal motivation; he’s citing the spa that he and Jimmy set up for Lynette, Dr. Bruce and Jimmy’s ex.

Adam now has another analogy, he’s comparing the loaded car he’ll eventually give to his kids when they’re 16 vs. the one bought by a kid saving up since he was 10 and how both cars will look after 1 year of driving, he’s right.
