Dexter Fong had hopes the "Well" was code for the "Fountain of Youth"
Bambi: maybe Boney could invite them

||||||||| Catherwood says "9:47 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs bonemeister by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Elayne: Hey Boney!
doctec: so far the colbert report is the best thing comedy central has come up with to follow the daily show on weeknights
cease: he is rightfully worried about the cold
Elayne: Tom, does the Colbert thing remind you a bit of that old Martin Mull show America 2Night? I think it's our modern equivalent.

||||||||| Catherwood gets ah.clem more ale.
Stickman: You can't tell Tom from Tom without a program.
Principal2006poop: it is the weather bambi ugh
Elayne: The thing was that Mull's character was Barth/Garth Gimble, whereas Colbert's character has the same name as the guy who plays him, so I think that confuses some people.
doctec: bone: i can't see you in the chat room participants list, i'll send you email
TheTweenpireStrikesBack: I like to melt cheese on my bronchitis. Hope, you're not feeling too badly, Bambi.
cease: mull had a song about the 50s
