Adam describes the dog on the plane scene and how he’s been doing it “dry” before the sound mix was finished, he jokes about pissing his pants, and he says it’s much funnier now that the film is entering the final mix.

Adam is now bringing up the 5+ female Loveline co-hosts who were forced on them by the network, Adam is describing his hesitance for the 3rd chair and how the network never admits they were wrong, they instead say “it didn’t work out” and Adam brings up the first co-host Kris McGaha.
Adam is now explaining that Alison should take this in the spirit in which it’s intended, Kris was going through a rough breakup while being tasked to give love advice on TV.
Adam is now bringing up the way men and women internalize and externalize emotions, Alison thinks she’s more like a dude that way.
This has never been discussed on air before, she was breaking up with Richard Jeni at the time, wow, and this is very involved.
Kris is amazing btw, a great person and was a solid co-host on the show.
Adam says it was never the person, it was the artificial 3rd chair that didn’t work for the format, he lists Diane Farr in the group of the “good ones” and Adam explains how he wanted to add some ADR lines for Diane during one of their scenes.

Adam says you always must be punished for these things, it’s always her leaving town right then, otherwise there would be no pain for him to learn this lesson.

Adam says he sent a long email to her asking if they could get her to do this, Dawson is further explaining how to turn a hotel room into a quality studio.
Adam is going in depth on how this will bother him and could be an annoyance, along with how Diane has already done enough favors, so this might not be her top priority.
Adam is now giving an incredibly done house metaphor for his movie and how it would feel with this added dialogue and without it.
Adam is now once again bringing up Ivan Reitman’s house and the place that Oprah bought for 55 million nearby, his was a little bit better, which Adam took to mean it was worth a little bit more.

Adam is now wrapping up with Laura and imagining if LAX security was managed by Trader Joes staff, Adam is now making a point about how they should treat passengers like their employers.
Adam says when you remove competition and natural predators things get relaxed and lazy, Adam is using a bank of a river in the Serengeti and the gazelles carefully getting a sip of water and backing up vs. the Crocodiles sunning themselves spread out on the banks.
Adam says that Larry Bird needed Magic Johnson pushing on him a little bit, Adam is basically describing capitalism and human nature all as one thing, very insightful observation.
Adam says the people at Trader Joes are happier than the staff at LAX, you would think the opposite, total freedom and job security makes you complacent and resentful, much like the family member who you’ve done the most for hating you the most.
Adam says don’t do anything for everyone, get a fucking job at Trader Joes and shut your fucking mouth.
