Show Page

Dawson has a Texas themed intro and the crowd sounds psyched, too bad I missed the show, drove 100 miles only to have to turn around when I was halfway there, bummer.

Adam welcomes BB and Alison to the stage, BB has a #TopDrop dedicated to the dead cows whose ribs he just ate, he plays a moo sound effect.

Adam is now explaining the last time he was here, Chris Tucker was playing the room across the street and Adam was playing the one next-door, Adam was hoping he wouldn’t run into Chris, he then decided he needs to not go through life assuming the worst.


Adam is now sharing his thinking that changed as he decided not to avoid the proverbial “Chris Tucker’s dressing room of life” and Adam describes the record scratch moment he experienced.

Adam jokes about learning his lesson and never trying to step out of his comfort zone, Alison is now asking about the deeper meaning of that scene, Chris wearing an all-white suit and holding court with is posse, I presume.

Adam is now adding spaghetti with Chili on top to the list of foods he loves but never eats, Adam was reminded of that while joking about Chris eating Chili in his white suit.


Adam is now taking it back to the airport and the Southwest flight they were waiting on, Adam asked if the flight was full and was met with a “why?” in response after being told it was.

“Why are you taking my ticket for Southwest at 39 years old asshole?” – Adam

Adam and Alison are describing the flight attendants who upped the “Cuntitude” for their flight, Alison is mocking them and Adam is saying that they’re always full, Adam jokes about Indian guys sitting on top of the plane and BB mentions them soliciting volunteers to be denied boarding (bumped) for 300$ vouchers.


Adam met two female fans who were heading to a “retreat” he now riffs about retreats and the other possible places they could be heading that would’ve made for an uncomfortable flight.

Turns out they were heading to a retreat at a dude ranch for people with IBS, Adam asked them about the trip, if they had a special diet, they were serving Brisket and going horseback riding, BB has a killer one liner feeling sympathy.

Alison has a funnier one liner about this being a ‘Heaven’s Gate’ style final retreat, Adam says he told them about his “Crohn’s Disease” attribution on IMDB and Wikipedia.


Adam told them about that and they observed that IMDB was close to IBS, Adam then had them download Alison on the topic as she approached, she’s full of info and sharing it.

Alison describes her fleabag motel and thoughts of joking over twitter, offering someone to murder her.

Alison explains the stain on her bedspread, she was pissed that the stain was lifting when she tried to clean it, Adam jokes she wanted it to be like “The Bedspread of Turin” and now Adam is back to the plane.


Adam was doing some profiling and observed the semi-heavyset woman with the open seat next to her, he saw a skinny Japanese guy with an open seat too, and he took that one.

Adam is now explaining how great that choice was, he was reading a Skymall and was delighted by it, Alison says that Adam’s voice really cuts through and she could hear him on the flight despite not sitting near him.

Adam asks BB for cock and balls check and describes the other stunner on the flight, a blonde woman only 2nd to Alison’s beauty of course.


BB brings up the couple in medical scrubs and Adam jokes about people with other work uniforms travelling in their clothing.

BB asked them and was told they are in medical sales, a job that typically doesn’t require scrubs, so they were wearing the scrubs to save wear and tear on their actual clothes.

Adam is back to the hot blonde who Adam was mystified by, that she was using Southwest to fly, like a beautiful woman working behind a fast food counter, his other analogy.


Adam describes the waify hot chick having to wait  in the middle of the aisle, then getting cut in front of by some dude, giving him and August more time to ogle her and enjoy her presence.

Alison observes the IBS gals will be listening and Adam jokes about putting them in the back of the plane for weight balancing.

Adam says if they made the same amount of announcements about shitting and pissing before getting on the plane that they do for smoking and seatbelts we would be flying in a utopia, Adam wants to know who the people are that use the jet bridge as a reminder to take a dump.


Adam describes how much he loves his boy Sonny, then jokes about his parents being lukewarm on him after thinking that most parents love their kids.

Adam points out his bad qualities, calling him a puss and then describes his two kisses, one for Natalia who left already, holy shit what an awesome kid!

Adam is telling them about his son was quizzing him about where he was going and gave him a Tim Duncan “tell him I said hi!” request, Adam observes how great it is to be a kid, thinking that anything is possible.


Adam explains why he likes The San Antonio Spurs, his son wanted to know and Adam thinks it might be that they have the least tattoos out of everyone else in the league, Adam says that he observed they always win

Adam told Mike August that Basketball is a team sport, tattoos are an individual activity and now they’re joking about LeBron James disproving that statistic.

The audience are now yelling out other teams, Adam jokes they should put all their money on the Utah Jazz after someone yells it out.


Alison and Adam are now riffing on team based tattoos, Adam comes up with a puzzle tattoo divided evenly among the players, in the shape of a ring, Adam calls back BB’s “chain” one liner and implies he’s a racist.

Adam explains he is working on his warehouse for cars and how the corner sink was begging him to piss in it, he looked around and didn’t see anyone around, and Alison observes that’s more courtesy than he gives in the warehouse where Alison works.

Adam is explaining how hard it was for him to cut his piss stream when he heard someone enter the facility via the metal door out front.


Adam is now comparing his piss stream cutoff abilities form his teenage years to now, he says it’s analogous to guys who used to fight and still think they can in their 50’s.

Adam describes feeling the piss run down his leg in his cloth blue pants, he says lucky there was a sock to catch the remainder so he didn’t soak the floor.

Adam’s only option was to splash water all over himself, like a crazy person, Alison cites Tom Sizemore and the “Baby Powder incident, whoa! Holy shit I knew I was picking up on something.


Adam is now joking about his “water balloon fight” reply he had chambered, joking about kids on Schwinn bicycles, the 1950’s version of troubled youths.

Adam says the good part of being the boss is nobody can rake you over the coals and demand answers, hilarious series of comments that didn’t occur demanding the truth from him.


Q and Ace

1st Question from Eduardo, if a fire broke out in his house what is the first thing Adam would grab, his genitalia and run he replies.

Adam is now pitching the story of heroic Molly running back into the house, he jokes about questions asking why she was doused in Scotch whisky.

“Don’t worry about it. You rescue people your way, let her do it her way” – Adam replying to that questions.


Eduardo’s wife or someone up front’s wife is now interrupting and Adam asks him to control her and have her politely put a sock in it.

She keeps shouting and Adam tells her to take it easy, hilarious Spanish from Ace telling the redheaded Spanish lady to be quiet and then jokes about her holding her breath for the whole show, Alison observes she would die and Adam is cool with it.

Alison asks about safes and safe deposit boxes, Adam is now riffing about the lack of traffic in safe deposit box’otoriums and now they’re asking how much it costs, they find out about 65$ per year.


Adam says he would get one and give the keys to his wife and kids, telling them not to open it unless something happens to him inside they’ll find a note that says “get a fucking job” along with a single bullet, for Molly or her oncologist, along with a “good luck” for her.

Adam jokes about a Russian doll series of safe deposit boxes inside of each other, holy shit he’s on fire and Alison is serving him up some solid fucking alley-oops.


2nd Question from Travis, he wants to know what Adam gets shit from his wife for, Adam now riffs about Lynette losing her keys and him getting reprimanded for leaving his flip flops outside.

Adam is now mocking Travis and the idea of going after each other, hilarious cop analogy, Adam says you get pulled over for speeding and bring up the cop being cut from his JV basketball team.

Adam is riffing on couples blaming each other for shit, an endless cycle, Adam jokes about keeping his safe deposit box in his house, the take away budget model.


Adam is now pitching a new show “front lawn arguments while the house is ablaze” and he’s riffing about the various scenarios where couples blame themselves for destroying their home and belongings, BB offers up some reasoned assumptions about the value of life and such, Alison and Adam are adamant the arguments start immediately.

Adam says the couples would be in their underpants, Alison says that it would be hard to get a camera crew there, Alison suggests setting the fires and Adam mentions the use of Go-Pro’s.


3rd Question from “Chuck Haze” I wonder if he’s related to Chet, he wants to know the biggest asshole celebrity Adam’s ever met.

Adam is now calling back to Loveline, he’s trying to conjure up the name “Sneaker Pimps” Liam from the band walked off the show, without a wallet, ID, cash, sensible shoes, roaming the streets of Culver City while the rest of the band finished the show.

It was on the eternally missing Classic Loveline #430, but you can hear some off air clips and clips of the show from the following episode.

#429 – Margaret Cho 05/21/1997


And if you would like to hear the last time this was brought up on air, see Adam and Dr. Drew Show #09

I was their first guest on what is essentially Loveline 2.0 and as I walked in the door Adam said the phrase “What was the name of that band…” and I immediately replied “Sneaker Pimps” and was right, I’m great!

Adam is now still trying to conjure the name and describing the scene, he cites how many guests would come on the show, like Esai Morales who argued about AIDS and HIV.

“That’s like 80 feet” – Adam sharing how far Culver City to Beverly Hills actually is.


Adam cites Richard O’Brien and his infamous lost episode, which possibly could be Classic Loveline #451 from 06/22/1997 but that’s uncertain, it could be a 1996 show that’s missing from the large gap in official tapes and fan files as well.
