SAME REASON MY HUSBAND SAYS I CAN’T WATCH. I GET YOU ALL DAY.>>Jimmy: I WAS FIGURING OUT. I WAS DOING THE MATH TODAY. I’M NOT GOOD AT MATH. BUT I FIGURED IT UT O. IF YOU MADE IT YOUR FULL TIME JOB AND DEVOTED YOUR TIME TO WATCHING “”GREY’S ANATOMY” SOMETHING FROM THE BEGINNING, IT WOULD TAKE YOU A WEEK TO WATCH ALL OF THE SHOWS. MY DAUGHTER STARTED WATCHING IT WAY AFTER IT WAS ON THE AIR. AND THEY DO THAT.>>THEY DO.>>Jimmy: DO YOU HEAR FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE AND THEY KNOW THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW.>>IT’S CRAZY. IT’S SUCH A BLESSING THAT THE ORIGINAL CAST IN THE PILOT ARE SO INCREDIBLE THAT THEY HOLD UP. BECAUSE I THINK THE KIDS TODAY, IF THEY WATCH IT AND IT WASN’T GREAT, THEY’D BE LIKE, THIS STUPID OLD SHOW.>>Jimmy: THEY SEEMS TO HAVE PICKED CERTAIN SHOWS. “FRIENDS” IS ONE OF THEM AND “THE OFFICE” IS ONE OF THEM. THERE ARE THESE SHOWS THAT THEY SEEM TO DISCOVER ALL ON THEIR OWN.>>YEAH, AND THEY THINK THEY’RE STILL COOL, WHICH IS AMAZING.>>Jimmy: WHICH INHERENTLY STILL MAKES THEM COOL.>>YES.>>Jimmy: YOU SHOULD HAVE A MEDICAL DEGREE WITH ALL THE HOURS YOU HAVE DONE.>>I SHOULD, I SHOULD.>>Jimmy: DID YOU HAVE A PARTY FOR THIS?>>WE KEEP HAVING PARTIES. I SAID TO SHONDA, ENOUGH WITH THE CELEBRATIONS NOW. WE CELEBRATED THE 300th. AND TYPICALLY, THE WRITERS WILL WRITE SOME BIG EPISODE WHERE EVERYBODY’S CELEBRATING. AND THAT TAKES A LONG TIME TO FILM. THERE’S A TON OF PEOPLE IN EVERY SCENE. AT THIS POINT, EVERY EPISODE IS A MILESTONE. WE’VE NOT THE PARTY SITUATION SETTLED.>>Jimmy: SO YOU WERE THE PARTY POOPER.>>YES.>>Jimmy: IF THERE IS A PARTY, YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE PARTY.>>YES. BUT TONIGHT’S EPISODE IS A PARTY.>>Jimmy: TONIGHT’S EPISODE IS A PARTY.>>YES, YES.>>Jimmy: SO YOU HAD A PARTY IN THE EPISODE, AND THEN A PARTY OFF CAMERA?>>YEAH, TONIGHT’S EPISODE, I THINK IF I’M RIGHT, THERE’S A PARTY, AND I SET THE HOUSE ON FIRE.>>Jimmy: OH, REALLY?>>YEAH.>>Jimmy: DO YOU REMEMBER ALL THE PLOT LINES AND ALL THE DIFFERENT THINGS?>>NO.>>Jimmy: I’M GOING TO QUIZ YOU A LITTLE BIT.>>OKAY. OKAY.>>Jimmy: YOU TELL ME IF THESE ARE THINGS THAT REALLY HAPPENED ON THE SHOW OR THEY DIDN’T HAPPEN, OKAY?>>A LOT OF IT IS, MOST OF IT IS FROM TRUE STORIES.>>Jimmy: THE HOSPITAL GETS TAKEN OVER BY A HONDURAN CARAVAN.>>NO. I THINK THAT’S WHAT SOMEONE THINKS IN THE WHITE HOUSE HAS HAPPENED.>>Jimmy: THAT’S RIGHT. YOU ARE CORRECT. THERE’S A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK BECAUSE A BUNCH OF GUYS TOOK SOME DRUGS.>>ARE THEY DRUG ADDICTS OR ZOMBIES?>>Jimmy: ZOMBIES AS A RESULT OF TAKING DRUGS.>>NO.>>Jimmy: YES, THAT DID HAPPEN.>>ONLY ATE THE WEED COOKIES?>>Jimmy: DIVORCED COUPLE GOT STUCK TOGETHER DURING SEX.>>100% THAT HAPPENED.>>Jimmy: YES.>>SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING THAT WOULD HAPPEN.>>Jimmy: MEREDITH PONDERS HER CAREER IN DENISTRY.>>NO.>>Jimmy: MAN HAS A FISH SWIM INTO HIS PENIS.>>YES!>>Jimmy: YES, THAT DID HAPPEN.
