I actually saved that episode last week just for that part. I have never seen Alex Trebek speechless.

Is Trebek morphing into David Letterman?

That is hilarious. I don't think I had ever seen Alex laugh before that.

Blues_X: Is Trebek morphing into David Letterman?


I've met him a few times. He is very sardonic, and his sense of humor reflects that.

He takes questions from the audience whenever there's a break while filming episodes of Jeopardy, and that means he's interacting with... the common clay of the New West, if you will. My favorite barb he's given that I've personally witnessed:

Audience Member: I've heard you're bilingual. How many languages do you speak?
Trebek, with an implied facepalm: Two. I'm bilingual.

He was no more insensitive than everyone else,including the contestant herself who clearly has a penchant for gallows humor. Non-story.

Incidentally, the x-files episode with Alex Trebek is season 3 episode 20 Jose Chung's From Outer Space. The episode is absolutely hilarious and one of my favorites.

That's pretty much the comment I came to make.

Trebeck doesn't have time for feelings he only consumes facts.

Was it a 60 pound or 80 pound bag, biatch? the amount of quickcrete a pygmy goat can consome might make the answer board later in the year.

CSB:

I was on in June. Came in 2nd. No goat stories.

Not sure exactly why, but that was one of my favorite comments in a long time. Just picturing his whole demeanor changing as he yells that at a contestant. Great

One of the best episodes ever, as all the Darin Morgan eps were. Sometimes I wonder if Darin Morgan had written more episodes, would we have gotten more epic episodes, or would he have been diluted and we'd have gotten a few "meh" ones out of him instead?

All the XF eps that Darrin Morgan wrote, all epic, all classics, funny as hell:

"Humbug" - the circus freaks episode "Must have been something I ate"
"Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" - psychic who predicts type of death - Mulder will die of autoerotic asphyxia, Scully will not die
"War of the Coprophages" - Cockroach episode "Bambi? Her name is 'Bambi'?"
"Jose Chung's From Outer Space" - Men in Black episode with Trebek

His two acting performances on the show were epic as well: He was "Flukie" (the giant Flukeworm in "The Host") and he was also Eddie Van Blundht (the "H" is silent - a dig at Duchovny) in the hilarious "Small Potatoes."

I think I would have gone with "One more than the number of brain cells you have to rub together."

"Alex, you're being insensitive."

"You're right!"

I lol'd.

The shocking part was that Trebek actually knew about 60 and 80 pound bags of Quikrete.

1) He's Canadian.
2) He must have had goats.
3) I have had goats.
4) The 60/80 question was honing in on her nationality (think Kilos v.s. LBS)
5) Perfectly crommulent question.

CBS Sunday Morning did a feature on Trebek a few weeks ago. He actually has a little hardware store in his own home.

Funny thing was that she almost pulled off an unlikely win by hitting a daily double late in the game behind by a ton, betting it all, and pulling the answer out of her arse. Too bad she failed in FJ.
 
2012-07-18 08:02:21 AM  
I found the contestant to be quite hittable, even with that ridiculously huge honker.
 
2012-07-18 06:44:24 PM  
I get a 12 hour ban for posting a "My brain is full of f*ck," gif, but it's okay to use to use "Holy F*ck" in the more tags line.

I don't farking understand this place.
