>> what's everybody's favorite cher song? we'd love to hear from you guys. >> we didn't want to pick a sonny and cher song. we wanted it to just be a cher song. so "turn back time" or one of those. maybe we'll go to the orange room -- >> even though nobody's there. they'll let us know via jerry. >> i want to live in the orange room. >> i think what we need to do, when it's our show and carson has gotten on a plane and gone back to los angeles, i think we just move the bar there and let that be our orange room which is sort of a green room but with our guests sitting there having a libation. >> they'll see the show from there. >> it will be people that we know as opposed to those minions in there all the time. >> who are those people? >> i don't know.

not the issue. >> that's really not the issue. >> if there's going to be longevity in any relationship, there needs to be truth. there needs to be honesty. i think she was waiting to see if it was going to work out. she kept her feelings to herself. it didn't work out. then she's probably boo-hooing, she's saying, you're better off. >> i never liked him. >> i never liked him. i saw him kiss a girl. i saw him -- here's what i think. i think they were never friends like she thought to begin with. if anybody's going to dump you that fast, they're not your friend. >> what if you had a guy you loved and your friend didn't like him? you had to find out on your own it wasn't going to work. you didn't need your friend telling you. your friend's job is to be your friend and pick you up -- >> you and i have always disagreed on this. i've got lots of friends. most of my friends disagree. i always say -- >> you always tell it? yes, you do. >> i do because i love my friend. >> right. >> i say, listen, this is your
life and this is your choice to make. but this is what concerns me. >> okay. >> you're not seeing straight. you know, people are blinded by love. >> yes, they are. >> and they don't see this stuff. the point is, if she makes the choice to go back to him after you've been a loving friend, she's not a friend. listen, she should say, you and i have to get along, this is my friend too. >> okay. let's laugh. >> okay. >> a bar owner was ending a long, long night. he cleans up. he locks up his place by 2:00 a.m. and goes home to sleep. he's only been in bed a few minutes when the phone rang. he reached over, half asleep. the voice on the other end goes, what time do you open the bar in the morning? the owner replied, are you kidding me? and slammed the phone back on the receiver. a few minutes later, the phone rang again. the same voice on the other end of the line. this time, he could tell the man was inebriated.
