"He really wanted to make it, but he was really busy drinking alcohol... and having sex with women who were not my mother."

Said Megan Mullally, talking about her father on Alec Baldwin's show "Here's the Thing."

Her husband Nick Offerman broke in: "Some people are able to juggle those pursuits."

Mullally: "Yeah."

Offerman: "But he was more of a specialist."

ADDED: I originally thought that was Baldwin's voice, but TML in the comments said it was Offerman. I relistened and agree and corrected the post.

Eat, drink, and make merry. The purpose driven life.

Offerman said that. Not Baldwin. Still funny though.

"Offerman said that."

Are you sure?

I relistened. You're right. Will fix.

Also, I think it's Mullally

Sean Gleeson said...

Yes it is Mullally, with a 'u.'

Alec Baldwin has a show? Does he have anything to contribute?

I'm guessing that if the topic is drinking alcohol and having sex with women who are not my children's mothers then he probably has a lot to contribute...

Kind of doubted Alec Baldwin would have the kind of self awareness such a joke would imply. He makes more sense as the straight man.

Sorry. It was all I could do to keep all the Ls straight.

He's very funny.

Keep listening. His balls become a subject of fun.

Will & Grace is coming back for a year.

Santorum spread said the "Will & Grace" effect allowed americans to be ok with gay marriage-cause we weren't portrayed as icky.

Why, do they kick them repeatedly? Because that's about the only entertainment I can imagine getting out of Alec Baldwin.

Alec has really terrific comedic timing. Got to give him that. I may think he, personally, is abhorrent --- but as an actor and entertainer, he is a top-tier talent who tends to make even the dumbest dreck better.

I feel like I should admit that the last movie I saw with Alec Baldwin was The Hunt for Red October. He was decent as Jack Ryan in that, but overshadowed by Sean Connery. And I haven't watched SNL in decades.

I'm what used to be called a square. Now they call us Republicans.

MM was also excellent on Parks and Rec. She and Nick are one of those smart, funny childless couples in the entertainment industry. I love them.
