GLENN: Well, thar she blows. There it is, Governor Spitzer. May we go back to just a few moments? Because the network turned off my microphone. I'm just saying. When I say the network, I mean Stu and Dan.
STU: And it was a brilliant decision by us because you couldn't stop the entire time.
GLENN: No, it wasn't. No, it wasn't. The people want to hear... I'm doing the people's work! Could we take it one more time with my microphone open?
STU: Yes, we can.
GLENN: Yeah. His wife looks like she hasn't slept in, oh, I don't know, a month.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: In the past few days I have begun to atone for my private failings with my wife Silda, my children.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: And my entire family.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: The remorse I feel will always be with me.
GLENN: I'm sure.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the love and compassion they have shown me.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: From those to whom much is given much is expected.
GLENN: Could we stop?
GOVERNOR SPITZER: I have been given much. The love of my family.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: The faith and trust of the people of New York. And the chance to lead this state.
GLENN: With really hot sex with hookers.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: I'm really sorry that I did not live up to what was expected of me.
GLENN: Stop. You didn't even come close to living up to what was expected. What was expected? Just to do a good job. Just to do a good job.
STU: I don't think that was expected. He's a politician. I think if you show up to work occasionally and not do anything illegal. How about that? Can we get that out of you?
GLENN: "I'm sorry I didn't live up to it but it was a high mountain to climb." I mean, you wanted me for four years not to have sex with hookers? What, are you crazy? Do you know how hard that is? They're hookers, man!
STU: They're --
GLENN: They're great!
STU: They're so good at it.
GLENN: I was doing investigations on them and I was putting them in jail and I'm like, what am I doing? They're great! Oh, I'm sorry I couldn't live up to your high standards.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: To every New Yorker.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: And to all those who believed in what I tried to stand for, I sincerely apologize.
GLENN: Stop. You look so sincere now, too. Doesn't he look heartbroken?
STU: Really he --
GLENN: The guy has absolutely no emotion.
STU: Yeah. And you are right about his wife. His wife, A, looks like she hasn't slept in a month and, B, has not one little, like indication of emotion. She just looks absolutely stone faced.
GLENN: Are you kidding me? Stu.
GLENN: You've got the perfect marriage.
STU: I would agree.
GLENN: That's the look of a woman who's ready to kill you! That's not -- there's no -- Dan, look at her!
DAN: You know, she gave up her own career she gave up. I forget what she was going to be, like a doctor or lawyer or something. She gave it up.
GLENN: Not a hooker.
DAN: Apparently that disappointed.
GLENN: If she would have become a hooker, everything -- it was a perfect relationship.
STU: Who is at fault here?
GLENN: She is! All right. I mean, Dan, you look at her face. There's emotion there, right? That's, "I'm going to kill you."
DAN: Well, let me put it this way.
GLENN: If it was legal in this city to carry a gun, you'd be a dead man.
DAN: If her eyes had heat-rays, his head would be melted off like the guy from Indiana Jones.
GLENN: She may be thinking to herself, heat-rays out of my eyes, heat-rays out of my eyes.
STU: I feel like it's a woman who wants to kill her husband but trying to play the part of --
GLENN: Oh, you know what it is. No, haven't you ever seen old movies?
STU: How old?
GLENN: Like in the 1940s and stuff.
GLENN: What he did is because, you know, he's the husband. So -- and she's playing the wife and so he had a doctor come over and say, I just think we should give her these pills, just give her these pills. It's going to be a tough time for a few days. And so she's probably all doped up. I saw it in the movies in the Forties. They gave her some sort of drugs that will make her not kill him.
STU: For the time being.
GLENN: Just a theory from a movie in the Forties. Go ahead, Dan.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: I look at my time as governor.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: With a sense of what might have been.
GLENN: Stop. I could have gotten more hookers in!
GOVERNOR SPITZER: But I also know --
GOVERNOR SPITZER: That as a public servant I and the remarkable people with whom I worked have --
GLENN: Stop. We don't include the hookers here, do we? I mean, why not. They were incredible people, too.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- accomplished a great deal.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: There is much more to be done.
GLENN: Oh, boy.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: And I cannot allow my private failings to disrupt the people's work.
GLENN: Stop. The people. The people's work! There's just, I can't allow it. I'm doing it for you. I'm quitting for you. It has nothing to do with me. I'm quitting for you.
STU: I like that there is much more to be done and there is many more to be done. I think that's kind of like the general message we're getting here.
GLENN: I think so. I believe. I believe you're right.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: Over the course of my public life.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: I have insisted, I believe correctly, that people, regardless of their position or power --
GLENN: Stop. Eliot, from hereon out no more use of the word "Position." Just saying that we need to have a talk at language class with you. Not being politically correct but you will never be able to say many words without invoking laughter.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- responsibility for their conduct. I can and will --
GLENN: And will.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- ask no less of myself.
GLENN: Ask not.
GOVERNOR SPITZER: For this reason I am resigning from the office of governor at Lieutenant Governor Paterson's request, the resignation will be effective Monday, March 17, a date that he believes will permit an orderly transition. I go forward with the belief --
GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- as others have said that as human beings, our greatest glory consists not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
GLENN: Okay, stop. Again not a phrase you should use, rising again. Probably -- I'm just, I'm just saying it might -- hey, you can put the instatabs and it happens right away. You know what I mean? Or you can take -- I mean, just get yourself to the hospital if you rise again and that happens to last more than four hours.
