Adam opens the show after a great “Bum and Bummer” intro from Dawson and Lynch, Adam has a killer “Freak Out!” reply and welcomes Dr. Drew back to the show for another visit.
Alison asks Adam about his new ‘Take a Knee’ podcast and if the motivational stuff will now be diminished on the flagship show, Adam says he won’t ever diminish himself or do more, he says it will hopefully be this and that will be that.
Adam does have a point, Carcast, Ace on the House and The Adam and Dr. Drew Show all have their own distinct “voices” and it doesn’t affect those topics frequency or depth on the main show, Adam doesn’t talk about cars on the ACS?
Dr. Drew argues that Adam would have torn him apart for the same question, Adam does make a point about being a fool not to dip his toes into this market.
Adam is now back to his conversation with ‘Norman Lear’ for the show, he says he found it to be transcendent and is trying to relay that feeling to the gang, Alison mentions how she almost cried when he was on the ACS, wow.
Adam is asking Dr. Drew what shows to plug, he says Loveline, but also that people aren’t probably aware he does The Adam and Dr. Drew Show, implying it has low listenership when it’s on par with a show like Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend if not even higher numbers I presume, I don’t think Drew monitors that stuff, but he does always bring it up.
BB tries to make a “classic” joke, unclear if he misheard or was just trying to generate a burn and wasn’t listening but in any case don’t forget about Classic Loveline, where the magic began!
Adam has a killer Bill Simmons impression/quote about his intentions for their activities in Vegas for Jimmy Kimmel’s birthday celebration.
Adam is giving everyone the details, he starts with the airport pickup, a miniature Scion car was his cab.
Adam is now telling Drew about his “car seat math” and how he always tries to get the spot with more leg room.
Adam is now making a point about the exponential pain increase between 5’8” and 6’2” heights when it comes to transportation and seating.
Adam is now mocking the cab driver who was at full recline with Adam in pain behind him, Adam is now explaining he slid it forward and kept it full reclined.
Adam says it’s an unsafe way to drive and bad for your posture, Adam is now sharing how he was talking about the guy to his wife right behind his head.
Drew says he was behaving like a child talking about how fat someone is in front of them, Adam says if he owned a cab company he would put a pin in the recline lever/dial so his rivers couldn’t recline while on the job and he jokes about all of the implications for bead on the job activities.
Adam is now explaining how when he arrived back in L.A. and got his car, Drew interrupts and Adam goes after him, Alison tells Drew to use her as a human shield.
Adam says his valet was a dwarf, Adam is now suggesting a career change, the short guys at Valet should be cab drivers and the big guys driving your cab now go to the valet game and slide your seat all the way back.
Adam stops to tell people that the seat being all the way back is not a problem, it can’t hurt your knees like being too forward.
Adam is plugging Drew’s show.
“Everyone’s a [piece of shit” – Adam
Adam is to the point where they are about to land in McCarran, Dr. Drew is asking about their southwest flight to Vegas and the woman sitting next to them who sputtered out “Perfect!” in response to finding out that people would be sitting next to her.

Adam asks for some respect for your elders, Drew says that’s all gone and Alison says never believe an apology from a bitch, she will just bust out some more cunty shit in a minute.
Adam pities the guy that fucks her and predicts her horrible life in front of her where she blames everyone else for their reaction to her horrific personality.
Adam says that Lynette ordered a bloody Mary on the flight back, Adam ordered a beer.
Adam says Lynette did the smart move and skimmed the booze off the top of her bloody Mary and Adam brought out a “traveler” mini booze bottle.
Adam was taking the drink up to his lips when the flight attendant demanded he give her back that drink, Adam is bringing up her argument that you can’t bring outside booze onto the flight.
Adam is saying she said you can’t pour it, Alison and Drew are asking about that.
Adam asked her to pretend she didn’t see it, Adam told her not to turn herself in, gold!
Alison echoes Adam’s reaction, Adam says she was bitchy from the word go and tried to pawn ‘Bud lite’ off on him instead of his preference for the low calorie ‘Miller lite’.
Adam then bargained he get one hit off of it before she take away his drink, Adam says he wasn’t being covert about it and is trying to explain her reaction to him taking a sip off of it.

Adam is bringing up the anti-poaching picture at the SLC airport, the fan came up and pointed out the cab stand.
Drew roped him into coming back, but Adam just moved on.
Adam is now recalling the time the angry lesbian woman who started digging into Drew after a college speaking gig.
Adam is trying to recall what the angry woman was trying to take out on Dr. Drew and Adam says it’s insane to think they’re supposed to sit and hold court while being offended.
Drew brings up the van filled with prostitutes story from Classic Loveline, Adam and Dr. Drew were in NYC and Drew walked towards them to offer assistance.
Drew once again quotes the “disengage” and Adam asks where Drew would be without him, hosting a local non-syndicated radio show while practicing medicine.
Adam is now doing a live read for Blue Apron
BB has a bit of input about the ‘Jerusalem Artichoke’.

Adam watched a “nice Hitler documentary” about G.I.’s put into death camps, Adam explains the goals of the Nazis, to work people to death or put them in an oven.

Drew is predicting an ISIS attack stateside and Alison has a shocked reaction to his assumptions, Adam is now further going in depth with Drew about this.
Adam says the huge problem we have is that if enough people in a region of land think the same thing it’s going to be hard to stop them, the problem is we think they think like we do but they’re just not interested in healthy lifestyles, they want to live in apocalyptic conditions.
