The 16th season of More-On Trivia began on Friday, with Glenn, Pat and Stu attempting to predict the outcome of the Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers NFL game by asking trivia questions to convenience store workers in both cities. The city answering the most questions correct won - in this case, Green Bay.
Coming off a solid season of 15-3 last year, More-On Trivia is already looking like a great predictor for NFL games, after the Green Bay 27-17 win over Seattle on Sunday.
Something out of the ordinary happened during Friday's episode, which actually might have been the most tender moment in More-On Trivia history. After listening to one contestant named Ian talk about his strained relationship with his mom, Glenn became suddenly serious. In the dialogue that followed, Glenn suggested one way for Ian to build unity with his mom and then challenged him to not waste a second with her over politics.
Watch the incredible moment below.
Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.
GLENN: What do you think of Donald Trump?
VOICE: Oh, God. I do not like him at all.
GLENN: Okay. That's good. Does your mom like him?
VOICE: I do not think so. No.
GLENN: You're not close to your mother, are you?
VOICE: Not as much these in these last couple of years.
GLENN: Why? What happened? Seriously, that's not right.
VOICE: Politics. And I grew up, and she's just -- yeah, I don't know.
GLENN: Hang on just a second. I want to say something serious to you here for a second.
VOICE: All right. What's that?
GLENN: Don't let politics get between you and your mom, man. That's just not right.
VOICE: Oh, absolutely. It's either politics or religion that's between us.
JEFFY: Hate those.
GLENN: Have you thought about snuffing her out? Snuffing her out?
VOICE: Oh, no. She's my mother.
GLENN: Okay. Good. So is your mom real religious and you're not, or vice-versa?
VOICE: Yeah, my mom is real religious, and I am not as much. But she used to -- these last couple of years, I think she realized she was getting old, so she just started going to church every single day.
PAT: Oh, I hate that.
GLENN: You know what, mom may have figured something out.
VOICE: Yeah, been going to church every day of the week.
GLENN: And when mom has to check out, man, and I mean this sincerely, don't -- as a guy whose mom is dead. My father is now dead. Don't -- over politics and religion, don't miss a second with them.
VOICE: Right. Yeah, absolutely.
JEFFY: Not a chance.
GLENN: Okay. Next question. If you have a box of 64 Crayola crayons and you take out Burnt Sienna and Cerulean, how many crayons are left in the box?
VOICE: Okay. Hang on. One second.
GLENN: Do you need a pencil or crayon or something? Don't forget to carry the one. 64.
VOICE: Wait. What was it? Burnt Sienna and, what?
GLENN: And Cerulean. You take those two, how many colors?
STU: So Teal stays?
PAT: Teal stays. So does Mauve. Mauve and Teal are both in there.
GLENN: I don't know if Mauve is in there anymore.
STU: No, it is. Just checked the box.
JEFFY: What about Indian Red?
PAT: Yeah, that's in there.
STU: Yes, it's in there.
GLENN: No. Not in my box. I banished that.
GLENN: Man, you're really, really close.
VOICE: Ugh. Am I not close at all?
GLENN: No, no, it was 12.
VOICE: That's terrible.
GLENN: You were in the right direction. Hey, listen, I mean this sincerely, I want you to right something down -- tell her -- have we had a good time? Have we enjoyed it? Do you feel like -- we're connecting, right?
VOICE: Yeah. Yep.
PAT: Yeah. There's a je ne sais quoi between us, if you will.
VOICE: I don't know what that means.
GLENN: Yeah, it's Spanish for something. I don't know. Listen, so like we're nice to each other, right? We can all get along. We probably disagree with each other politically and maybe even religiously. Would you say there's a probably a good shot at that. I want you to tell something to your mom. And I want you to right it down. First of all, mom, today I spoke to a guy named Glenn Beck. And he said to say hi.
GLENN: Okay. She might know who I am. She might not. And she might know who I am. And if she does, she'll think that's probably really, really bad or really cool.
GLENN: And if she thinks it's really cool, you'll have something to talk about and unite on. If she doesn't think it's cool, drop it.
GLENN: And just tell her this, "Mom, I love you. No matter what you say, no matter what I agree or disagree, I love you." Okay.
VOICE: Will do.
GLENN: Thanks a lot.
VOICE: You guys too.
STU: I love you too, Ian. Buh-bye.
STU: That was really sweet.
PAT: That was nice.
GLENN: Are you guys mocking me?
PAT: No, that was a most tender moment in the history of More-On Trivia.
