A transcription for those who don't care to hear it:
I gotta tell ya, after hearing that particular caller, that reminds me of something very funny that happened. I took my mom-- I treated my mom to Disneyworld not too long ago, and we're walking around Disneyworld in Florida, and all these people have Animaniacs shirts. Did I tell you about this?
Rob, this is very... This is unbelievable. And she's going-- My mom's saying, "Oh, go tell 'em. Go tell 'em it's you." And I'm like, "No, Mom, I don't think that's..." -- "C'mon, they'll be so happy..." Well, we end up in this one line and there's this little boy -- real cute little boy, about eight years old, with an Animaniacs shirt. So I go over to him and-- And my mom says, "You gotta tell him. Oh, c'mon, he's eight years old; he'll be so--" I go, "Okay..." So I go over to him and go, "Hey, I like your shirt," you know, and he kinda looks at me like I'm nuts, and he goes, "Oh... Okay..." And I go, "You like Animaniacs, huh?" and he goes, "Yyyeah..."
"No, I like Rugrats; that's why I'm wearin' this shirt, you big dope!"
And I go, "Who's your favorite one?" you know, and he goes, "Khe... Wakko, why??" I go, "Well, it's funny you say that, man, 'cause, you know, I do his voice." And he kind of looks at me for a second, and he goes, "So? I do it too." I go, "No no no no no..." I go, "I mean I really do it on the show." And he goes, "Khe... No you don't," all right? And I go, "No, I do!" and he goes, "But they do that in California." And I go, "I live in California," and he goes, "Yeah, right." So I take out my driver's license and I show it to him, and I go, "Look! It's California!" He goes, "(Sarcastic) Oh, yeah, if you're in California, then you must do his voice." And I go, "Oh god..." And he's like, "Well, look. Prove it. Let me hear you do it." And go, "Well now I'm on the spot! I'm nervous" now with this kid. And he goes, "Well, just say something," and I go, "(As Wakko) Well it sure is great to be here at Disneyworld, huh?" And he goes, "Khe... You don't even sound like him."
Isn't that great?
You've got a grown man pleading, going, "No, I really am that guy!"
I love how you tried to convince the kid...
I know, man...
"C'mon, man. I do it!"
"Do you wanna see a check stub?"
"I got my tax forms here, junior!!!"
