>> do not repeat this anyone. >> i like her pajamas. wine and popcorn look. we love that. all this beautiful satin and the cashmere cardigans underneath which is just her at home lounging. i'd love to lung like this wouldn't you? >> that would be nice. what is the story behind this? >> this was a gown that she wore to a white house event and it was when she was more conflicted so we went with the black and white. it's completely black lace in the pack and try to use color to express those moments of conflict and when she's being olivia pope the white knight she's in white. when they are world gets a little muddy she's in grays and navy blues. when she's in pink that's romantic. >> five minutes. >> now clearly in peril we hope olivia gets to don her white knight armor soon. until then i'll keep an eye on

it. >> season four and still talking about the white coat and the white hat which is here for your perusal. >> oh there's the hat. may i -- >> you may. >> may i approach the hat. >> may i abroach the hat. >> this is brilliant. >> this is stunning. >> it's a little bit diana ross. >> that is a little diana ross. >> i love it. it's really amazing. i hope it's going to fit you. oh there we go. a little to the side. >> yes, you've got it going on. in don't you dare! huh? >> not quitting my day job any time soon and be sure to tune in zap zap thursdays 9:00 8:00 central on abc and lyn's suggestion was if there's something you like buy multiples. you know if your favorite blouse or something, then buy that you're comfortable in buy multiples. >> i think that was your audition. i think you're on. that was really good. >> hey, next thursday portia de
8:35 am
rossi will be here live on "gma" so we're looking forward to having portia here with us. final check of the weather. >> let's get inside. are you guys okay? are you dealing? oh my we have to check around the nation, some of the photos you've been sending, rally beautiful. even -- really beautiful. how about orange beach alabama looking warmer there. record warmth in kansas, 78. denver 67. rapid city, 68. here's a look across the nation across weekend. milder before the snow moves in new england. that's the big picture, let's get check closer to home. >> reporter: it's looking better for the weekend but for now we
8:36 am
have sunny conditions on storm tracker 6 live double scan, looking out the window, this afternoon's high, 33. 46 saturday, 50 on sunday. the d-town boogie. >> john oliver what a breakthrough first season he had on hbo making his mark with smart and surprising sketches like this one right. a supreme court played by nine talking dogs. >> uh-huh. >> "last week with john oliver" returns on sunday. where does that come from? who is sitting around the table saying i know how to cover the supreme court? dogs. >> i think first it's coming from what is objectively funny, dogs dressed up as humans. that's just a fact. >> whether they're playing poker or -- >> supreme court court justices is even funnier than shooting pool. no it was -- we just wanted to try to show how absurd it was there weren't cameras in there
8:37 am
and then there is nothing funnier than real animals and we heard they saw it. >> ruth bader ginsburg liked it. >> i heard ginsberg saw it and liked it and i heard that scalia saw it. >> it's a start. i love the metric you have for the stories you're going to do high degrees of difficulty. >> yeah. >> or high degrees of stupidity. >> exactly. those are the two lanes we're in. we'll either do a main story sometimes complicated and doesn't seem funny at first, second or 35th or last. and if we end up doing serious we do the stupidest thing you've seen on television. >> you say stupid but people have been tuning in and what you've been doing on sundays is called investigative comedy. >> they can call it that. i think it's just comedy. i think there is an extra word at the start of that. we want to make sure that the jokes we're telling are built on facts. and sometimes we have to go
8:38 am
truffling around for facts that are not immediately available, but, no it's comedy. >> how does it work? you're looking at some stories percolating for a long time. what happens on a week like this week this whole brian williams thing. >> i interdo know if we'll look at that. normally we like to wait. we're only on once a week so late to everything anyway so we've generally moved towards being even later and try to wait until the hubbub has died down and look at it with more per perspective perspective. i don't think we'll look at brian williams. >> how about the "downton abbey," congressman who decorated -- >> that's too tantalizing. as a comedian look there is ee blood in the water. >> we might tune in for that. >> if you cut me till i bleed or put a congressman with a "downton abbey" office in front of me i don't know what you expect me to do. yes, that is catnip to me. >> when you look at it you are doing comedy and you want to make people laugh more than
8:39 am
anything else but it's got to be gratifying that you made people think? >> i guess so that's a pleasant by-product but, you know the main thing we're doing is comedy so if you get to the end of a joke and someone is just thinking you have failed. you temperature want an audience at a comedy show to say i thought all the way through that. that was quite a contemplation for the whole time. no reallys a visceral way to judge comedy. if there's not laffer you have failed. >> amazing life on youtube. >> getting hit in the nuts by something. >> i could but we're running out of time so you're saved by that. okay john oliver thanks very much. the show comes back on sunday night. coming up behind the scenes of ginger's incredible adventure in iceland. look at that dramatic footage.

>> amazing life on youtube. in iceland. ♪ i'm on top of the world ♪ it's been an incredible week. so enjoyed watching the incredible footage of that live active volcano in iceland. the whole thing captured live here on "gma" earlier this week thanks to drones and ginger you were smack dab there for it all. >> what an adventure. behind the scenes of that un unforgettable trek to the land of fire and ice. hovering just above that bubbling earth. >> oh, my gosh. you can see it. look at this.
8:43 am
we're just getting inside that crater. >> witnessing the meeting of mother nature and modern technology. it was the ultimate adventure. drones have in a responsible way a huge future in science. >> reporter: now broadcasting live from iceland above a lava field using drones is no easy feat. >> 380 feet over it. oh my goodness. so how did we get up there? let's rewind a bit to the arrival of our intrepid "gma" crew the journey began saturday when three engineers from london one producer from new york one drone operator from germany and one from san francisco all met up in akureyri iceland. the team drove 2 1/2 hours to pick up 30 cases of equipment including a satellite dish and generators that had been shipped ahead of their arrival. sunday morning it was a six-hour drive to the bardarbunga volcano. our team set up 25 miles to the northeast near an eruption site
8:44 am
called eded eded hoularaun. >> in the cold mostly it's battery life and they don't last as longer and if you get too close it becomes too hot and the plastic could melt on these drones. >> reporter: the drones have just 12 minutes of battery life so while our team is hard at work in iceland, that arctic air is not just creeping but racing in david. monday night after reporting on "world news" in new york my race to the airport began. an hour and 15-minute delay later my plane took off for the nearly six-hour flight to iceland where an hour car ride and nearly two-hour-long helicopter ride later i made it just an hour before you heard these words -- >> ginger and our "gma" extreme adventure team are there live as we say -- >> good morning, america. >> a good unforgettable morning indeed. you can see even more of that
8:45 am
behind-the-scenes action from my trip to iceland at our website, on yahoo! >> what will you remember mosey. >> just the crew being like i can't believe it worked. i can't we're here and it happened and the proximity, how close we got to the lava. >> so incredible to see how much work went into making that all happen. >> that's the thing. i just dropped in. seriously. dropped this and they had been working for a week. >> just in the nick of time. >> just before it happened so big thanks to all of them. it was magic what happened. >> a lot of people are wondering, anybody in danger around there, the concern for people that live will. >> there is a reason they don't allow people to get that close. we had to have special government permits because that area could flash flood very quickly. if the lava started flowing we had a helicopter to get out and get people to higher ground but you don't want a lot of folks. >> how close do people live -- >> eruptionwise they're far enough away that flash flooding is the only concern. >> ginger thanks again.
