BUT FIRST, MY NEXT GUEST TONIGHT
IS A GOOD FRIEND OF THIS SHOW. HE STARRED AS SAM BECKETT ON
“QUANTUM LEAP” AND CAPTAIN JONATHAN ARCHER ON “STAR
TREK: ENTERPRISE.” HE NOW STARS AS SPECIAL AGENT
DWAYNE PRIDE ON “NCIS: NEW ORLEANS.” PLEASE WELCOME, SCOTT BAKULA! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING )>>THANK YOU!>>Stephen: NICE TO SEE YOU
AGAIN.>>THEY JUST EASE YOU OUT HERE. YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW IT’S OVER.>>Stephen: I’VE GOT TO ASK
YOU THIS, DID YOU SEE THE HORSE?>>SO HERE’S THE DEAL ABOUT THE
HORSE. WHILE YOU AND PRATT HAVE BEEN
SCREWING AROUND — THREE DATES AND A PHONE NUMBER.>>Stephen: YOU GOT THE DIGITS
FROM THE HORSE?>>I HAVE BEEN RIDING THE HORSE. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: THAT IS A METAPHOR.>>YEP. YOU TELL ME —
>>Stephen: LEGALLY ON CBS, I CAN’T.>>ALL RIGHT. YOU KNOW, DONALD WOULD KNOW IF
THAT WAS A METAPHOR OR NOT.>>Stephen: HE WOULD. WHAT DO YOU THINK HE WOULD
SAY?>>Stephen: WHAT DO YOU THINK
DONALD WOULD SAY?>>YES.>>Stephen: MY MANE IS MORE
HANDSOME THAN THAT HORSE. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) SOMEBODY GIVE ME AN APPLE. ( LAUGHTER )
I TOLD YOU LAST TIME WHEN YOU WERE ON THE SHOW WITH THE
“QUANTUM LEAP” BIT. YOU WERE MY SAVIOR IN “QUANTUM
LEAP.” I WATCHED THAT SHOW INCESSANTLY. I LOVED IT. THERE USED TO BE MARATHONS OF IT
ON TBS OR TNT, AND I WAS SO UNEMPLOYED, I WOULD WATCH YOU
ALL DAY LONG. MY WIFE WOULD COME HOME AND SAY,
WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY? NOT, THIS I PROMISE. ( LAUGHTER )
YOU ARE ALSO CAPTAIN ARCHER FROM THE ENTERPRISE.>>YES.>>Stephen: ARE YOU SURPRISED
BY THE GLOBAL REACH.>>YES, THERE IS NOT A CORNER OF
THE EARTH THAT IS SAFE FOR ME. YOU WOULD THINK IF I WERE IN
INDIA, I WOULD BE OKAY, BUT IT’S NOT TRUE.>>Stephen: PEOPLE HAVE COME
UP AND GIVEN YOU STORIES ABOUT HOW YOU INSPIRED THEM WHEN YOU
WERE ON THE ENTERPRISE.>>THE BEST STORIES ARE WHEN
PEOPLE SAY I WATCHED THE SHOW WITH MY FAMILY AND IT BROUGHT US
TOGETHER. THAT’S THE BEST STORY. BUT THEN THEY’RE FROM RUSSIA OR
ISRAEL.>>Stephen: HAVE YOU DONE GONE
TO THE CONVENTIONS.>>YEAH, YEAH. CONVENTIONS ARE FUN. THEY’RE WEIRD BUT THEY’RE FUN. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: WHAT ARE MORE OF THE WEIRDER THINGS?>>IT’S NOT EASY TO SEE YOUR
FACE TATTOOED ON SOMEBODY ELSE’S BACK.>>Stephen: REALLY? YEAH, LIKE WHEN I HAD YOURS
REMOVED — IT’S PAINFUL, BUT YOU GET TIRED OF THAT.>>Stephen: WAS IT A GOOD
LIKENESS?>>OKAY. OKAY. THE THING WAS THAT THERE WERE
OTHER FACES ON THE BACK, ALSO.>>Stephen: UH-HUH. WHO WERE YOU SHARING THIS BACK
WITH, DO YOU REMEMBER?>>OTHER FOLKS FROM THE SHOW.>>Stephen: OKAY. O I KNEW THEM.>>Stephen: ALL JUST CAPTAINS? YES, AND WE WEREN’T ENGAGED
IN ANY ACTIVITY.>>Stephen: IT WASN’T FAN
FICTION?>>I SAW A PICTURE TODAY — NO,
I’M NOT GOING TO TELL.>>Stephen: WHAT?! ( AUDIENCE REACTS )
>>IT’S NOT VERY SMART OF ME TO DO THIS, BUT I DID A PLAY GIRL A
HUNDRED MILLION YEARS AGO.>>Stephen: YOU WERE IN
“PLAYGIRL”?>>YES. ( CHEERING )
>>I WAS DOING A RADIO SHOW AND THEY HAD PICTURES GOING UP,
BEING GENERATED AS I WAS TALKING AND I LOOKED UP AND THEY SAID —
THEY WERE ASKING ME ABOUT THIS FUNNY STUFF ABOUT THAT, AND I
LOOKED UP AND THERE I WAS, AND I LOOKED AT THE PICTURE AND I WAS
IN TIGHTY WHITIES, AND MY BODY WAS KIND OF LAYING OUT, AND I
THOUGHT, THAT’S NOT ME! THEY PHOTOSHOPED — SOMEBODY
PHOTOSHOPED MY LOWER HALF TO MY BODY.>>Stephen: WHY DID THEY NEED
TO REPLACE YOUR LOWER HALF? ( LAUGHTER )
>>WE’RE NOT GOING THERE.>>Stephen: OKAY. NO. IT WAS BIZARRE.>>Stephen: WHAT ISSUE? WHAT YEAR ARE WE LOOKING AT?>>WE’RE NOT. IT’S NOT A SECRET I DID THIS,
BUT PEOPLE CAN DO ANYTHING, YOU JUST HAVE TO BE CAREFUL THAT —
>>Stephen: BE CAREFUL IF YOU POSE FOR “PLAYGIRL,” YOU’VE GOT
TO BE CAREFUL! ( LAUGHTER )
DID YOU AT LEAST LOOK AT IT AND GO, YOU KNOW, I’M GLAD I HAD A
PHOTO TAKEN OF ME WHEN I HAD A BODY LIKE THAT. I DID A NUDE SCENE ON TV, LIVE
ON STAGE, WHEN I WAS 19. THE DIRECTOR SAID WOULD YOU DO
THIS, AND I THOUGHT, I DON’T THINK IT WILL GET ANY BETTER, I
SHOULD DO IT NOW. ( LAUGHTER )
SPEAKING OF BEING IN GOOD SHAPE, YOU’VE GONE VEGAN.>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>Stephen: IT’S NOT A DRAG AT
ALL.>>OH, YEAH. I’M WORKING IN NEW ORLEANS NOW,
IT’S A DRAG.>>Stephen: SPEAKING OF WHICH,
YOU’VE COME TO LOVE MUSIC AND THE CITY.>>YEP.>>Stephen: JOHN IS FROM
NEW ORLEANS.>>I’M AWARE OF THAT. YOU’RE PLAYING PIANO AND
SINGING.>>Stephen: DO YOU WANT TO DO
SOMETHING WITH THE BAND?>>SURE.>>Stephen: SCOT BAKULA,
