[man] Ladies and gentleman,
welcome to The Earliest Show
with Josh and Sam.
[ both voice sounds ]
- Take a seat Sam.
- Okay, if you say so.
Lauren Lapkus: Welcome to
The Earliest Show.
- Good morning.
- Or good night.
Ben Schwartz: It doesn't matter. We don't know.
Whatever you're doing right now.
Ben Schwartz: Josh Bath here,
and to my left is Sammi.
Lauren Lapkus: I'm Samantha Newman.
Welcome, welcome, welcome.
Ben Schwartz: My goodness.
Mark, you want to say
hello to everyone real quick.
Ben Schwartz: Mark our producer.
Thanks for being with us.
Lauren Lapkus: [Sam] I got
some bad news.
Ben Schwartz: What's some bad news?
Lauren Lapkus: I got a retraction from
a story we told yesterday.
Ben Schwartz: Hey Mark, stop giving
us stories that are
fake and phony, okay?
Ben Schwartz: We seem to be retracting--
[ laughs ]
Joe Hartzler: Take me away.
Ben Schwartz: [Josh] Okay.
What was it this time?
Lauren Lapkus: Well, we showed a photograph
of a kitten sitting inside
Lauren Lapkus: of a kangaroo's pouch.
Ben Schwartz: Let's show that
photograph one more time.
Let's look at it.
- Awww.
- Awwww.
Lauren Lapkus: Turns out
it's Photoshopped.
- That is Photoshopped.
- Not real.
Ben Schwartz: Mark, what happened?
We did a whole story about
how that kitten found
Ben Schwartz: a mom and that
mom was a kangaroo.
Is that all a lie?
Ben Schwartz: Someone has too much
time on their hands on the internet.
Ben Schwartz: [Josh] Was that you Mark?
- What?
Ben Schwartz: Did you make that pic?
Ben Schwartz: [Josh] Alright Mark.
You know what this
reminds me of?
Ben Schwartz: You see that cute
little baby kitty cat?
Ben Schwartz: Sam has something
called the kitty cam.
Ben Schwartz: Now what is this?
Let's cut to it right now.
Tell me what it is.
Lauren Lapkus: Now, this is the live
feed from my home.
Ben Schwartz: And just so we know,
that is your exact outfit?
Lauren Lapkus: That is. She is always
matching me perfectly.
Ben Schwartz: And so what is it--
You told me you buy
the cat outfits first,
Ben Schwartz: and then sew
your own outfits.
Lauren Lapkus: Exactly. To match.
Ben Schwartz: Yeah, but why not opposite?
Why not buy your outfits,
and then sew the tiny version?
Lauren Lapkus: I never thought of that.
- For real?
- I never thought of that.
Ben Schwartz: How about this?
This is a new story.
This can't be false, right Mark?
- You swear this is real?
- Yep.
Ben Schwartz: Real story. Here we come.
Coming at you. We got a scoop
on a new one.
Lauren Lapkus: We got a scoop.
It's a big old ice cream
Ben Schwartz: I'll take two
scoops please.
Ben Schwartz: A little bit of
chocolaty cherry.
[ voicing sounds ]
Ben Schwartz: We do have a scoop
though for real, not ice cream.
- I'm lactose intolerant.
- Me too. Got the di-di.
Ben Schwartz: I get a little bit of di-di.
I would like to actually
get the ta-di.
Lauren Lapkus: I just eat ice cream
on the toilet.
Just saves me time.
Lauren Lapkus: Doctor's are saying...
well you know how
you walk up stairs?
Ben Schwartz: Yeah. Like this.
Hubba, hubba, hubba, hubba.
Lauren Lapkus: Yeah. They're saying
go like this.
Lauren Lapkus: Heebie, heebie, heebie. Walk on the sides.
Side step up the stairs, don't walk straight.
Ben Schwartz: So instead of heeba-hobba,
heeba-hobba, you want them to do?
[ voicing ]
Ben Schwartz: Side. Wouldn't you feel
like that would hurt your hip?
Lauren Lapkus: Look, I'll listen to
anything a doctor says.
Ben Schwartz: Really? What if a doctor says,
"5 out of 6 doctors agree
you should stop
Ben Schwartz: getting 12 hours of sleep.
That's too much."
Lauren Lapkus: I'm going to go see
where that 6th doctor is at.
Ben Schwartz: Don't tell anybody.
In the green room right now

Ben Schwartz: who I talk about
all the time--

Mark loves her, but hands off.

Can you see her?
Mark, can you cut to her please?

the picture of the kangaroo.
Ben Schwartz: Nope, Mark that's
a picture of yourself.

can't hear us. She's waiting

about to be proposed to.

Emily today on the show.
