[ laughter ] you know, 'cause if a bear can open a door -- >> jimmy: yeah, then, yeah. >> the sky's the limit. [ laughter ] i don't have a plan for that one. like, my plan was the door. [ laughter ] but in that dream, i would have this dream, bear walking in the front door, and i'd hide in the kitchen cupboard with my sister, patty. and it's pitch-black, and i'm scared to death.
and i opened up the door a crack to let in some light. i look, i look out, and i look next to me, and my sister patty is gone, and she's been replaced by the bear. and -- [ laughter ] -- yeah, i know. and he doesn't kill me, but gives me kind of a coy jack nicholsoney look like -- "will i kill you?" you know, and that's -- [ laughter ] -- and that's when i wake up. i had that dream for years, you know? >> jimmy: frightening. >> i did. and like, and then i attempted to kind of face this life long fear of bears. like, a few years ago, my sister patty and i went to alaska. we actually went to this place called katmai national park, where there are so many bears that when you arrive, they take you to what's called bear orientation. and what they teach you -- and this is a real thing. like, if you ever see a bear, it seems counterintuitive, but you're actually supposed to clap and make the bear aware of your presence. like, "i'm right here, bear! [ laughter ] i'm right here! i'm mike and you're a bear." when they told me this, i was like, "oh, i'm going to be murdered by a bear." [ laughter ] 'cause that seems like painting -- you're like basting yourself in barbecue sauce. [ laughter ] you know, it's just like "i'm right here, bear, i'm right here, and i taste fantastic.
i've applied condiments, so that will --" but, we actually went fly fishing. have you tried fly fishing before? >> jimmy: i went once with a -- yeah, and it was awesome. >> yeah, it's difficult, though. >> jimmy: not easy, no. >> yeah, it's like much more difficult than it looks, yeah, in "a river runs through it." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: they make it look easy, though, yeah. >> well, yeah, cause you're in like the rubber pants, you know? did you wear like the waders, you know? >> jimmy: yes. and there's rubber pants. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. >> that's what i call them when i wear them privately. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: rubber pants. >> well they are, yeah. i have a big wader's collection in my closet. but, uh -- >> jimmy: that's for your normal pant of choice? >> yeah, it's one of them. uh, when i do my goat noises, i like to -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: like to wear rubber pants. >> -- rubber pants, of course. no, i'm in the rubber pants, we're waist-deep in water, and there's salmon actually jumping out of the water. like, literally jumping -- which is what i would do if i were a fish. like that seems like a great field trip, you know, like you're in the boring water all day. and then you're just like "whoa. [ laughter ] like, i want to stay here and
grow legs, and become a human," which is what happened over time. sorry, homeschoolers. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i don't think that's correct, but -- [ laughter and applause ] >> you sure? >> jimmy: you're going to throw in a disclaimer? >> but, the salmon jumping out of the water -- >> jimmy: disclaimer -- humans did not come from fish. [ laughter ] >> the salmon are jumping out of the water -- >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. >> -- and i can't catch one. and we're with a fishing guide and he feels bad for me. so, he catches one himself, places the rod in my hands and goes "you got one!" [ laughter ] and that really hurt, you know? cause like -- >> jimmy: that's condescending. >> -- i knew that i hadn't, you know? it's like, you know -- and so, i'm in with the guide and my sister, patty, is about 75 yards behind me, and i hear her say, "mike?" and it was the voice of someone who is about to be mauled. [ laughter ] it had a very distinct pitch. you know, it was like, "mike." like, if it was like, "miiiike!" like, i would be like, she's dead. [ laughter ]
you know, but it was just like -- it was just like "miike?" and i turn around and there's an eight foot brown bear walking towards her in the water. yeah, i know, that's crazy. >> jimmy: oh my gosh. >> it was very surreal. you know, cause he wasn't running, you know what i mean? like he wasn't like -- he wasn't just that cartoon, like, he wasn't like -- [ imitates roaring ] -- i will roar, you know? it was kind even kind of docile, "i'm a bear, et cetera," you know? [ laughter ] and here it was, my greatest fear in my entire life and i built up the courage to say, "guide, do something!" [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: good for you. >> but you know what happened, is the guide just snapped into action. he sprinted over, and i swear to god, he sprinted over at the bear and he clapped. you know, he was like -- he was like -- [ imitates scream ] [ laughter ] and the bear walked away. he was just like "all right, i'm a bear, et cetera." [ laughter ] and i was very relieved that my sister didn't get mauled. but in retrospect, i was a
little angry at the guide. i was like, "you know, you didn't tell me about the -- [ imitates scream ] -- plan. you just told me go 'i'm right here, bear. [ laughter ] i'm right here. i'm mike, and you're a bear." it's like he gave me the bad parachute.
