Stewart: You need to go to one. The thing that I want to say is, when you have people on for just knee-jerk, reactionary talk…
Carlson: Wait. I thought you were going to be funny. Come on. Be funny.

Carlson: I can tell you love it. …Is this really Jon Stewart? What is this, anyway?
Stewart: Yes, it’s someone who watches your show and cannot take it anymore.
