Al Madrigal: Welcome to Small Talk.
I'm your host Al Madrigal.
Al Madrigal: We've got a great
episode for you today, but
Al Madrigal: first let's find a
stranger and tell him a joke.
Al Madrigal: Excuse me sir.
Al Madrigal: How are ya?
Al Madrigal: So, I had to give the
birds and the bees talk
Al Madrigal: to my son the other
day, and I had a difficult time
Al Madrigal: explaining how
they do it in mid-air.
[ laughs ] That's really good.
Hey, could I try
out a joke on you?
Al Madrigal: No thanks.
I'll just leaf you alone then.
Al Madrigal: That actually was pretty good.

Al Madrigal: --but first, we're going
to see a commercial from my
Al Madrigal: cousin Nico's senior thesis film,
Al Madrigal: which should be, very interesting.
Al Madrigal: I'm not sure what
that was, but thank you cousin Nico.
Art intimidates me.

things moving along.

Al Madrigal: Rory!
Al Madrigal: Hey!
Rory Scovel: Al! Hey!
Al Madrigal: Why are you over there?
Rory Scovel: I'm up there in
that upper parking lot walking
Rory Scovel: around, and I
almost got into someone else's car.
Al Madrigal: Well, I'm glad you didn't.
- How are you doing?
- Hey bud? How's it going?
Al Madrigal: Nice to see you.
I got your stuff.
Rory Scovel: Oh, alright.
Al Madrigal: I picked up the
huge trunk you asked me to.
Rory Scovel: What is that?
Rory Scovel: I didn't say trunk,
I said trunks, swimming trunks,
Rory Scovel: to put on. I was
going to wear'em during this.
Rory Scovel: I thought it would be fun.
Al Madrigal: What am I
supposed to do with this?
Rory Scovel: I don't know. Give it
back to the pirates you stole it from.
Rory Scovel: Now I gotta wear this.
Al Madrigal: Hey guys, look at
this. Rory Scovel is in the car.
[ clapping heard ]
Rory Scovel: Rory: Alright. Okay. Yeah.
Al Madrigal: Um, now you are
known as a master of crowd work,
Al Madrigal: that's another thing.
You were the best.
Rory Scovel: I appreciate that thank you.
Al Madrigal: Let's take a look.
Let's see what you can do here.
Rory Scovel: What's that?
Al Madrigal: We got an audience. We got a crowd.
Rory Scovel: You want to do it now?
Al Madrigal: Let's do a little work.
-Just with the people here?
- Sure. You guys want that?
- Do you want him to work you?
- Work right now. Yeah, let's see it.
- Now here with them?
Al Madrigal: You can do it
anywhere. I've seen you.
Rory Scovel: Alright, um...
Rory Scovel: Okay, here we go. So um,
where are...where are you guys from?
Rory Scovel: Just, let me know where
you're from, and we can kinda get into it.
Rory Scovel: New York or anything...
are you from New York?
Rory Scovel: You ever been
to New York City?
Rory Scovel: Just tell me where
you're from. A second ago
Rory Scovel: you were so fired up.
Rory Scovel: What's her deal,
huh, with the glasses?
Rory Scovel: Right.
Rory Scovel: Me too.
Rory Scovel: I also do the glasses.
Rory Scovel: Where did you
get your glasses from?
Rory Scovel: Here we go. Where
did you get your glasses?
Rory Scovel: The glasses store?
Leave her alone.
Rory Scovel: I mean, just literally
one second ago you guys were
Rory Scovel: just head over heals,
excited to be apart of it.
Rory Scovel: Now you won't even
tell me where you're from.
Al Madrigal: Maybe if you were
wearing the swimming trunks.
[ laughter is heard ]
Rory Scovel: Why is that a thing?
Al Madrigal: The perfect place to end it.
That's our show ladies and gentleman.
Al Madrigal: Thank you
very much for coming.
Al Madrigal: One more time for
Rory Scovel. Let him hear it.
Al Madrigal: Alright, now take it easy.
Rory Scovel: We just get out?
Al Madrigal: Al: Yeah, that's it.
See you later bud.
Rory Scovel: Rory: Okay.
Lady: [ giggling ] Uh...
You know, I am
from New York. [ laughs ]
Rory Scovel: Why didn't you
tell me that? I could've used that.
Man: I thought
you wanted me to lie.
