In that clip of
Catherine the Great, she… She utters one of my favourite lines
that works all the time, I say it all the time, I love
saying I’ll be the judge of that. It works in everything. You know,
you can say it for everything. When the waiter says, walk this way.
I’ll be the judge of that. I love it.
And there are a lot of those. I think I said it
earlier today to someone but I always love to say, thanks
for the warning. You know? It works. These are lines that… And I tell the kids on our show,
if you don’t know what to say, at least have 10 things
you can say, like, for small talk, you can have a list of
10 things to say that work in every situation always. Always. My favourite, my all-time
favourite one is, um, uh, is… ..is, um… Uh, uh. Here, it’s coming.
It’s coming. LAUGHTER I got it. You’re going to love this. It is… It is… Um, uh, uh… Yeah, I lost it. LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE I don’t know. You will end up
saying it tonight. I will say it. You will say it. Oh, yeah. I’m going to say it!
I am going to say it. Now, talking…
Oh, here it is, I got it. Oh! Oh! LAUGHTER I don’t see how that…
HE STUTTERS LAUGHTER Ask me a question,
ask me any question. OK, so you grew up in Louisiana? I don’t see
how that’s any of your business. LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE It works every time. Every single time. It is funny. A lot of times, now, I have to
say to the person, I’m just kidding, I’m just kidding,
because no-one ever expects it. So, the takeaway here, I don’t see
how that’s any of your business, I’ll be the judge of that, and
what was my other one? I said it. I have a short memory. Um… Oh, thanks for the warning. Oh, yeah, thanks for the warning.
Thanks for the warning. Lucille Ball used to have one that
if she was having a dinner party and somebody went to the loo, when they came back in,
she’d go, “Tell it to her face!” LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE Oh, God, I’m going to use that!
I love that! We can use that when your next
guest comes on. Oh, yes! Tell him! Tell him! Tell him! Oh! It’s good pedigree, as well.
Good pedigree. I love that. It’s good pedigree.
