This Splitsider article about the time David Letterman had 13 cameras in his studio came out pretty good, and, if nothing else, it reminded me to watch this clip on YouTube, which is the best:
Jerry: Cancelled? But I was supposed to be on tomorrow night.
Letterman: Yeah, but then, you know, some people were telling me about that little flap out there at the junior high assembly. And before that, you were bumped by a lizard?
Jerry: Actually, it was a monitor lizard.
Letterman: those things, deadly dangerous. A long time ago my uncle and a date are driving, like, through Mexico. They see one on the road, drags him out of the road, and chews his face off. Listen, we’ll call you if anything opens up. Okay, Jimmy?
Letterman: Right. Jerry.
