GLENN: Sitting here, talking about Bill Cosby, I mean, there was a time -- do you remember -- do you remember the --
GLENN: My Brother Russell? Do you remember that, that piece that he did? My brother Russell.
BILL: My brother Russell, he thought he was smart, but Russell is really dumb. Because he started laughing at my father one time at the dinner table. And Russell didn't know how tough dad really was. He was just sitting there giggling as my father.
See, Russell hadn't been with us too long. So I said, "Russ, don't laugh at dad because dad will pick up a tree and kill you."
I can't help it, man. He looks funny.
I said, "You better cut it out." And Russ started laughing. And he had a funny laugh.
And my father said, "What the hell is wrong with Russell?"
And finally Russell said, "You look funny, Dad. You got a funny-looking face." Dad said, "You think my face is funny. You keep laughing at me, I'll smack your face off."
And he just kept looked at him, you'll smack my face off (laughter). I said, "Russ, please, cool it. I'd hate to see you get hit. And besides, he may --
GLENN: Oh, what happened? "He may miss and hit me."
It's a -- he was tremendous.
JEFFY: I think that's one of the reasons that he did the interview, is that -- because people remember Bill Cosby. Right?
JEFFY: People remember that it's Bill Cosby. That's the guy that we all grew up loving.
GLENN: Okay. So remember we had the creator of Priceline on last week? So we go back to my office. And we're talking. And he said -- he said, "You know, sometimes fate works in your favor. Sometimes, you know, life just turns out all right, even if you think it's a disaster." He said, "When we started Priceline," he said, "You know, we had no money. And who are we going to get?" And he said, "I called and called and called Bill Cosby." And he said, "We wanted Bill Cosby so bad. Bill was huge."
GLENN: And, "We wanted Bill Cosby because he would appeal to everyone." And he said, "He wanted $2 million," which is nothing to Priceline now. They wanted Bill Cosby for $2 million. And he said, you know, we didn't have anything. And I said, "Look, maybe we give you a piece of the company or something." They hang up. He said, "So I meet with William Shatner." Go from Bill Cosby to William Shatner.
JEFFY: Another icon though.
GLENN: And I love Bill Shatner. I think William Shatner is hysterical. Very self-aware and very smart. And he said, "So I went to New York and I met with him." And he said, "We were having dinner," and Bill Shatner's thing was, "Okay. Come on, tell me, really? You really think this internet thing is going to go?" For as futuristic as Bill Shatner was, he asked the Priceline guy when they were starting, "Come on. Really? You think this -- you think the internet thing has a future?" Isn't that amazing?
PAT: Wow. Wow.
STU: It did too.
GLENN: It wound up having a future.
PAT: I've heard some people use it now. Is that true?
GLENN: Yeah, they do. Yes.
PAT: And now, isn't Shatner's daughter in on that too? She's doing Priceline now, I think, right?
STU: Any time between 2002 and 2008, you could have bought Priceline stock at about $20. That is now 1825.
STU: Ninety times the amount of money.
GLENN: Not $18.
PAT: Good heavens.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh.
STU: Ninety times your money.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Yes. So I think this internet thing has a future. Yes. Better than if you would have invested in Jell-O pudding pops. I'll just say that.
